Risky Whisker Island is in the third batch of unlocked islands in Bowser’s Fury. It comprised of several platforms that fall if you stand on them for too long, and it’s filled with hidden Cat Shine Shards.

On Risky Whisker Island, the Super Leaf is the most useful item because it allows you to softly float down from your jumps as Tanooki Mario. If you’re collecting the Cat Shine Shards on your first visit to the island, consider fighting the paint Luigi first. Beating him will clear up the paint from below the platforms, eliminating any danger from falling.
