Super Mario Odyssey guide: Luncheon Kingdom all power moon locations

How to find every power moon in the Luncheon Kingdom

When you first arrive in the Luncheon Kingdom, you’ll see a list of 52 power moons in your menu. Weirdly, you can’t collect them all yet. Also, there are more than 52 moons here. Here’s how it works:

  • You can collect moons 1-49 on your first visit
  • Moons 50-56 will become available after you defeat Bowser for the final time
  • Moons 57-68 will pop out of the moon rock when you destroy it (also after you beat Bowser for the final time)

How to find all Luncheon Kingdom power moons

Our power moons guide puts the collectibles in the same order as Super Mario Odyssey.

1. The Broodals Are After Some Cookin’

You’ll get the first power moon in this area for defeating Spewart the Broodal.

2. Under the Cheese Rocks

As you continue helping out the residents of the Luncheon Kingdom, you’ll come to an area guarded by two Hammer Bros — this is where the Path to the Meat Plateau flag will be later. Capture one of the Hammer Bros (though, since they’re throwing pans, that’s a bit of a misnomer), then clear the area of baddies. Start smashing through all of the cheese to the west of you. Climb up the stairs you uncover, then keep smashing cheese. There’s a switch under the cheese rocks. Hit it with Cappy to unlock the nearby moon.

3. Big Pot on the Volcano: Dive In!

When you finally make it to the top of the Meat Plateau, you’ll find a heavily salted chunk of meat. When you capture it with Cappy, the Cookatiel will carry you up to the pot at the top of the volcano. All that’s left is a quick platforming trip around the various chunks of food in the pot. At the end of your circuit, you’ll claim your moon.

4. Climb Up the Cascading Magma and 29. Alcove Behind the Pillars of Magma

After getting moon 3 in the pot, you’ll be returned to the Odyssey. Head back to Peronza Plaza, then out of town to the west (you’ll have to climb over some vegetables and salt dunes) to find the Volcano Cave Entrance flag. You’ll pass through an 8-bit wall, then a corn cob-rolling gap that will delivery you to a doorway. (There are no moons between Peronza Plaza and here, we’re only laying all of this out because it’s the only way to get to these moons.) Inside, capture a Lava Bubble and start working your way up the lava waterfall, dodging the wooden pillars. Drop down on the other side of the falls, then turn around. Moon 29 is in the alcove behind and above you. Continue out, then use the Lava Bubble to light the last brazier before the exit. You’ll get moon 4 for all your hard work.

5. Cookatiel Showdown!

At the Top of the Peak Climb flag, you’ll capture another Lava Bubble, then use a cannon to launch yourself into the cooking pot at the top of the volcano. When you get there, you’ll have to fight the Cookatiel. Avoid anything it throws at you, then climb its … well, you climb its vomit. Do this a few times and you’ll get your moon.

6. Piled on the Salt

You can see this moon from the Odyssey after you get rid of the Cookatiel, but it takes a little work to get to it. Grab one of the Lava Bubbles in the area north of the Odyssey, then head east between and around the buildings. On the far edge of the lava, you’ll find a cannon that will fire you back toward the Odyssey. Hop inside and fire it, but bail out when you’re over the roofs. Head south along the roof closest to the Odyssey, along the piles of salt, to find your moon.

7. Lurking in the Pillar’s Shadow

This moon is also in the lava-filled area just north of the Odyssey. Grab a Lava Bubble, then head east a little bit (like you’re heading for the cannon in moon 6). Take the left before the platform with the two lanterns. Look to the north for a low lava platform. Hop onto it, then the stone platform behind it. There’s an alcove right there with your moon inside.

8. Atop the Jutting Crag

Head to the Peronza Plaza flag, then go the pier-thing on the east side of town. Grab a Lava Bubble and hop into the cannon off to your right. This will launch you off to the east, over the tall, blue mountain. Just like you did with moon 6, bail out of the Lava Bubble just as you pass over the mountaintop. The moon is off to your right when you land.

9. Is This an Ingredient Too?!

In the alley to the left of the Crazy Cap shop in Peronza Plaza, there is a stack of wooden crates. Smash the crates to reveal your moon — it’ll fly up to the roof on your right. Wall jump up the alley walls to go retrieve it.

10. Atop a Column in a Row

In Peronza Plaza, climb up some of the hill-sized vegetables to the right of the large cooking pot. Use them to jump up to the line of columns along the southern edge of town. Hop eastward along the tops of the columns with long jumps until you reach the end. Ground pound the last column in the row for your moon.

11. Surrounded by Tall Mountains

This moon is on the north side of the cliffs that border the north side of the Path to the Meat Plateau. It technically possible to get there with a lot of jumping and just sticktoitiveness, but there’s an easier way. Head to the Meat Plateau flag, then look west. If you look closely, you should be able to see the glowing ledge where the moon is buried. Jump off of the Meat Plateau and dive. Guide your dive toward the small ledge, then ground pound to reveal your moon.

12. Island of Salt Floating in the Lava

If you haven’t yet, the first step in getting this moon is getting to Salt-Pile Isle. Head to Peronza Plaza, then grab one of the Lava Bubbles next to the pier-thing. Turn southeast and jump over the fence of low columns down to the area below. Right ahead of you will be a salt-covered island — this is Salt-Pile Isle. There’s another salt-covered island a little further to the southeast. Grab a Lava Bubble and head there. Ground pound to find your moon.

13. Overlooking a Bunch of Ingredients

This moon is up on top of the blue cliff on the west side of Peronza Plaza. You can get here with a death-defying dive out of the cooking pot at the top of the volcano, but there’s a more direct path. Head to the Path to the Meat Plateau flag, then turn around and head right (west) to capture one of the Hammer Bros. Climb up the cheese rock-covered steps, then climb over the steps in the blue stone on your left to enter Peronza Plaza. Head to the far side of the plaza and bounce your Hammer Bro on top of the slots building. From there, you can bounce up onto the ridge. Continue left, then head south to the end of the ridge. Release your Hammer Bro, then ground pound the glowing area to find your moon.

14. Light the Lantern on the Small Island

Warp to the Path to the Meat Plateau flag. The lantern you have to light is right in front of you when you land. Grab the Lava Bubble that pops up in front of you, then bounce it into the lantern/brazier. Once the fire is lit, you’ll find your moon.

15, 16 and 17. Golden Turnip Recipes 1, 2 and 3

For these three moons, you have to retrieve three Golden Turnips from around the kingdom and toss them into the cooking pot in Peronza Plaza.

  • The first turnip is to the right of the Crazy Cap — it’s the middle one of the three.
  • The second is along the same ridge where you picked up moon 8. Just past where you got the moon, there are three turnips — the golden one is again in the middle. Once you pick it up, head back along the ridge, then drop down to the area around the Path to the Meat Plateau flag. Continue westward through the area, then climb up over the cheese rocks to drop into Peronza Plaza.
  • For the third, go back to the Path to the Meat Plateau area and capture a Hammer Bro. Head north across the area to the ramps on the far side. These will lead you up to the top of the ridge. Once there, look over ridge. Below you on the north side, there are some cheese rocks you can destroy. Smash them, then ditch your Hammer Bro. Your turnip is underneath them. Continue east along the platforms and around the ridge. Cross back through the lava area toward the Path to the Meat Plateau flag, then follow the path over the cheese stairs to Peronza Plaza.

18. Luncheon Kingdom Timer Challenge 1

There are two forks in the wall to the west of the Odyssey. Use them to launch yourself up to the roof where the scarecrow is waiting for you. This one is just a quick series of wall jumps, then grab the moon and drop back down to the scarecrow.

19. Luncheon Kingdom Timer Challenge 2

This scarecrow is halfway between the Odyssey and Peronza Plaza on the east side. You just have to run out, grab the key and run back. The only problem is, the purple blocks you step on on your way out will fall away, meaning you’ll have to take a different route back.

20. Luncheon Kingdom Timer Challenge 3

Warp to the Start of the Peak Climb flag, then turn around. The scarecrow is on an island atop a pile of salt. There are two tipping pads that you have to use to get the key, then return to the island to get your moon. Stand on the near end of the larger pad for a second (making sure you avoid the lava) to tip the far end up. Run up and jump to grab the key.

21. Beneath the Rolling Vegetables

There’s an island in the far northeast corner of the map. Take a Lava Bubble to get there the first time — and pick up moon 23 along the way — then hit the Remote Island in the Lava flag. Avoid the bouncing vegetables and make your way to the 8-bit pipe near the highest point of the island. Avoid the 2-D Hammer Bros as you make your way to the right, then drop through the next pipe. You’ll drop onto a moving platform that will carry you to the left. Watch for the fireballs, then hop off the platform and continue around the curve. The moon is at the far left end.

Before you leave the island, grab moon 22.

22. All the Cracks Are Fixed

Moon 22 is on the same island in the northeast as moon 21. Talk to the Volbonan standing next to the Remote Island in the Lava flag. You’ll have to do his job for him — run around the island ground pounding all the cracks you see. Once you get all six of them, head back toward the flag for your reward.

23. Taking Notes: Swimming in Magma

On your way to the remote island in the northeast where you picked up moons 21 and 22, you’ll likely run into a musical note in the lava sea. The notes you have to pick up will lead you straight to the Remote Island in the Lava flag.

24. Love Above the Lava

In the area right around the Odyssey, there are four Goombas. The lovelorn Goombette is in the back left corner of the area. Stack up the Goombas, then hop your way back to the Goombette. You’ll have to avoid Magmatoes and navigate the corn on the cob to get there, so be careful.

25. Shopping in Mount Volbono

Nintendo

Just like the rest of the Shopping in … moons, you’ll find this one in the Crazy Cap store for 100 coins. The Crazy Cap is in Peronza Plaza if you haven’t seen it yet.

26. Luncheon Kingdom Slots

Nintendo

The slots building is behind some vegetables in the northwest corner of Peronza Plaza. This time, you’ll have to line up five moons. You can get the first three with a toss of Cappy. You’ll have to grab the other two on their own. As always, just watch for the red heart to time your throw.

27. A Strong Simmer and 28. An Extreme Simmer

Talk to the Volbonan next to the locked door in Peronza Plaza — it’s the building to the left of the Crazy Cap store. Grab the Chef Hat and Suit from the purple side of the Crazy Cap store for 15 purple coins. Put it on, and the Volbonan will let you past.

Inside, grab one of the Lava Bubbles and hop into the pot to get your first moon. The second moon takes a little more work. Grab another Lava Bubble and cross to the other end of the hall. Release the Lava Bubble, then start hitting the Magmatoes with Cappy or start jumping on them. Try to arrange them to create an easy path to the second pot. Head back to the hall to grab another Lava Bubble. Bounce through the puddles until you can dive into the second pot for the second moon.

29. Alcove Behind the Pillars of Magma

Warp to Volcano Cave Entrance, capture a Lava Bubble and swim to the cave in the distance. Inside, capture another Lava Bubble and swim up to the top of the ramp. Drop down where the geysers are, turn around and you’ll see an indentation in the wall. Take a geyser up to collect this power moon.

30. Treasure Beneath the Cheese Rocks

Grab one of the Hammer Bros from near the Path to the Meat Plateau flag, then hop your way back through the Peronza Plaza like you did for moon 13. From there, continue all the way back to the Odyssey in the south. Across from the Odyssey on the left, there are some cheese rocks to smash. Clear them out of the way, then ditch the Hammer Bro and ground pound the glowing spot to get your moon.

31. Light the Two Flames

Capture the Fire Bros that’s hopping around the lava-filled area near the Odyssey. You don’t have to take him far — just to the right and a little farther north of where you capture him. There are two lanterns on a platform to the right of the area. There’s also a Spiny there you’ll have to avoid or hit with a fireball. Light the two lanterns with fireballs and the moon will appear.

32. Light the Far-Off Lanterns

Just like with moon 31, you have to light two lanterns to get this moon to reveal itself. You have to put in a bit more work this time, though. There are any number of ways to get to this moon, but the easiest is to head to the Top of the Peak Climb flag. Turn around, then drop down a level. Capture a Lava Bubble and use it to leap to the east, all the way down to sea level. You’ll see the platform with the two lanterns and the door when you land.

Stand in front of each of the lanterns and taunt the Fire Piranha Plant until it spits a fireball at you. Dodge out of the way and it will light the lantern. Do that on both sides of the door, and the moon will appear.

33. Bon Appetit, Captain Toad!

Captain Toad has found himself another hard-to-reach vacation spot. He’s not too far from the Start of the Peak Climb flag, but you’ll need a Lava Bubble to reach him. The easiest way to get one is to head to the Top of the Peak Climb flag and drop down a level to capture one of those — this is the same thing we told you to do for moon 32. Once you have a Lava Bubble under your control, head to the northernmost island on the map — you’ll go right past the scarecrow for moon 20.

34. The Treasure Chest in the Veggies

Head to the Path to the Meat Plateau flag. Turn right when you land, then jump up to the sloped wall. Climb up, then head to the left. At the end of the ledge you’re on, look over the edge on your right. There’s a platform you can drop to with a red door. There’s no puzzle inside, just a chest with your moon.

35. Caught Hopping at the Volcano!

Head to the Peronza Plaza flag, then turn around when you get there. You’ll see this kingdom’s rabbit hopping around on the steep ledges behind you. He’s quick, and he’s got a lot of vertical ground to use to get away from you. Keep after him until you get your moon.

36. Taking Notes: Big Pot Swim

Go to the Top of the Peak Climb flag, grab a Lava Bubble, then blast yourself up to the cooking pot at the top of the volcano. Right in the center of the stew, you’ll find a musical note. You’ll have to make three passes back and forth across the pot (with jumps thrown in) to collect them all and get your moon.

37. Magma Swamp: Floating and Sinking and 38. Corner of the Magma Swamp

Go to the Peronza Plaza flag and face south. Drop down the ledges, then cross the metal grates. Watch to your right for a red door below you. The platforms you’ll use to move around the room will cycle up and down, in and out of the lava. The little mound in the center will stay out of the lava, so you have a safe place to stand.

Before you start collecting the moon shards, turn back toward the door you came in through. To the left, there are some platforms you can jump onto that will lead you behind the structure where you can find moon 38.

Back in the main room, carefully (and slowly) make your way around the moon to collect all five shards (you can see all five in the image in the gallery above).

39. Magma Narrow Path and 40. Crossing to the Magma

Warp to the Meat Plateau then jump down on the southern side until you get to (lava) sea level — there’s a red door at the base of the column. As you start to climb, watch for the section where you pass between two platforms. Drop the Lava Bubble, then take out the two Magmatoes on the right platform. Capture the Lava Bubble on the left platform, then use the Magmato puddles to cross the platform and climb the lava ledges to the right. You’ll find moon 40 at the top.

Drop back down and continue through the rest of the lava paths to the end to find moon 39.

41. Fork Flickin’ to the Summit and 42. Fork Flickin’ Detour

Grab one of the Lava Bubbles at the Peronza Plaza pier. Jump over the row of columns to your right and drop into the lower area. Continue to the cliff surrounded by metal grates. Use the Lava Bubble to jump up through the grate, then release the Lava Bubble at the top so Mario lands on the grate. Head through the red door.

Use the forks to climb the cliffs. Right before the end at the last forks that will carry you up to the exit, use the rightmost fork to launch yourself sideways to the right. You’ll land on a platform near a fork that will throw you up to moon 42. Launch yourself back to the left, then grab moon 41 on your way out.

43. Excavate ‘n’ Search the Cheese Rocks and 44. Climb the Cheese Rocks

Head to the Path to the Meat Plateau and grab one of the Hammer Bros behind you. Head to the east and go around the left side of the cliff ahead of you. Near the back side of the cliff, you’ll find some cheese rocks to smash through. There’s a red door behind them.

Inside, you’ll find a room full of cheese rocks and a Hammer Bro. Before you start collecting shards, focus on the tall column of cheese rock in the corner right next to the Hammer Bro. Smash some stairs into it, then climb to the top. Smash through the cheese rocks at the very top to reveal an alcove with moon 44 inside.

You can collect moon shards with the pans your Hammer Bro throws, so the easiest approach here is to just throw pans as fast as you can all over the room. You’ll pick up most of them just smashing through the rocks, but there are two in alcoves you’ll uncover in your cookware barrage.

45. Spinning Athletics End Goal and 46. Taking Notes: Spinning Athletics

Warp to the Remote Island in the Lava flag. Grab a Lava Bubble and head to the island to the north (and a little west) of the Remote Island. You have to leave Cappy behind to get through the door, so you know this is going to be fun. Your job here is to make it across the spinning platforms all the way to the end. Be patient and persistent here — if you’re anything like us, you’ll fail. A lot.

Right after the first corner, you’ll find three cylindrical platforms. The one on the left has a musical note in the middle. Grab the note, then follow the notes off the edge of the platform. Turn around immediately and jump back up to the edge of the rotating platform. When you’re hanging off the edge, the rotating platform will carry you through the rest of the notes and reveal moon 46.

All that’s left for you to do is finish the obstacle course to reach the exit and find moon 45.

47. Secret Path to Mount Volbono!

Super Mario Odyssey’s warp paintings are confusing. They seem to change from game to game in a way that, thus far, we can’t explain. (In fact, we’re perfectly open to the possibility that at least some of them are random, which would explain our consternation.) So we’re going to do two things here: show you how we found this secret path, and show you a gallery of all warp painting locations in the game.

The good news is that the locations of the paintings don’t change. However, the painting you see in a kingdom may be different. For example, we saw a painting of the Luncheon Kingdom in Wooded Kingdom. You may not. If that’s the case, check out the gallery below and make your way to another kingdom.

All warp painting locations in all kingdoms

In our games, we’ve been able to warp to Luncheon Kingdom from Lake Kingdom and Wooded Kingdom.

The gallery above shows the locations of all warp paintings in Super Mario Odyssey. There’s a pattern, too: The first image shows you where you’ll stand on the map facing the painting, while the second image shows you what the painting looks like.

48. A Tourist in the Luncheon Kingdom!

Nintendo

To get this power moon, you need to beat the game and return to the Sand Kingdom. Remember the taxi that’s always been there, just outside of town? Speak to a sombrero-wearing little guy, who’ll tell you that he can’t wait to take a ride. Then go to the Metro Kingdom and find him again. (It’s not hard. He’s right in front of you when you ride the wire to enter the city, and you’ll get a Metro Kingdom power moon for your trouble.) Keep following him around kingdoms, and eventually he’ll wind up in the Luncheon Kingdom, as pictured above.

49. Found with Luncheon Kingdom Art

The hint artwork for this moon is on the ridge between the Path to the Meat Plateau flag and Peronza Plaza. Get past the Hammer Bros and the cheese rocks, then climb the steps cut into the blue stone on the left. Instead of dropping into Peronza Plaza, though, turn right and follow the ridge. The artwork is at the end of the ridge on the left.

Head back to the Odyssey and sail for the Seaside Kingdom. Once there, warp to the Ocean Trench West flag. Your goal is just a little east of here, so you don’t necessarily have to capture a Cheep Cheep if you don’t want to. Swim over to the coral(?)-like structure to the east, then ground pound the tallest pad to reveal your moon.

50. The Rooftop Lantern

Warp to Path to the Meat Plateau and turn around, heading south where a pair of Hammer Bros are throwing pans. Capture one, and throw a bunch of pans at the yellow cheese blocking the way up to the west. (You only need to throw enough so that you can jump up to the area that the cheese was blocking.)

Next, head north, capture a Fire Bro and return to where you destroyed the cheese. Jump up above the cheese and head left at the top. In the corner of this platform is a makeshift blue-green staircase. Hop up there, and on the other side, down onto the roof of a building. (Check out the gallery above to see the exact positions.)

Inch to the far side of the roof, facing the next building. Jump, and at the highest point of your jump, throw fireballs at the lantern on the roof of the adjacent building. When it lights, a power moon will pop out.

Jump over the gap between buildings, become Mario in midair between the buildings and collect your power moon on the roof of Crazy Cap.

51. Jammin’ in the Luncheon Kingdom

Warp to Peronza Plaza and head south, as if you were returning to the Odyssey. Toad is ahead on your right. Play track 46, “Honeylune Ridge: Escape” to get this power moon.

52. Mechanic: Repairs Complete!

Change into the mechanic’s outfit. If you don’t have it, travel to the Wooded Kingdom and buy it at Crazy Cap there.

Warp to Volcano Cave Entrance. Run east into the city, and turn to follow the left wall. From the porch in front of the building, ground pound into a jump to land on the green plant in front of you. Do that again, and make your way up to a robot from the Wooded Kingdom. (Check out the gallery above to see its exact position.) Speak to the mechanical watering can, and as long as you’re dressed properly, you’ll get a power moon.

53. Diving from the Big Pot!

Warp to Top of the Peak Climb and take over a Lava Bubble right by the flag. Swim up and take the canon to the big pot. Look over the big pot’s southwestern edge (you can see this in the gallery above), and you’ll see a smaller pot below. Jump out of the big pot, land in the little one and you’ll get a power moon.

54. Hat-and-Seek: Among the Food

Warp to Peronza Plaza, and head into town. Turn left before Crazy Cap, and walk behind the building. Walk to the back of the fork-looking Volbonan, and press a to speak. You’ll learn that it’s actually a Bonneter, and you’ll get a power moon for your detective work.

55. Luncheon Kingdom: Regular Cup

Like nearly every race in Super Mario Odyssey, there are shortcuts that give you a huge advantage. You can buy yourself so much time that, unlike other races, our advice is to use them on the Regular and Master Cups.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Turn right as soon as you have control of Mario, and hat jump to the closest platform. (That’s jump, throw Cappy, press ZL and then Y.)
  2. Do another hat jump to reach the next closest platform. These two steps will put you in first place.
  3. Use the Volbonan (the fork-like creatures from the Luncheon Kingdom) to flick Mario up the next series of steps. (It’s faster than jumping.)
  4. Hat jump over the rotating platform. (You’ll gain time because you don’t have to wait for it to rotate.)
  5. After you take the second Volbonan up, hat jump aiming for the platform on your right. You’ll either make it in a single jump or land close, where you’ll need to do a ground pound into a jump to reach the platform.
  6. Jump up until you can’t go forward anymore. Turn around and look up to find the third Volbonan.
  7. Ground pound jump and throw Cappy at it. Flick yourself up, and you’ll be at the finish line way before any of the Koopas.

56. Peach in the Luncheon Kingdom

Nintendo

Warp to Peronza Plaza and head into town, taking a right at the bend in the road. Princess Peach is standing in front of a column, just past the giant cooking pot on your right. Speak to her to get this power moon.

57. From Inside a Bright Stone

Warp to Peronza Plaza and head south, as if you were returning to the Odyssey. Veer left after jumping over the platforms and look down over the edge of the ledge. Jump down to the blueish platform below and ground pound the center for this power moon.

58. Under the Meat Plateau

Warp to Meat Plateau and head down underneath the warp flag. (See the images above for the path.) Face the moon, then jump, throw Cappy with Y while in midair, hit ZL and then hold Y. You’ll jump off of Cappy and up to the power moon. (You can see that in action above, too.)

Unless you throw and dive away, you’ll lose a heart, so you may want to make sure you have one to spare.

59. On Top of a Tall, Tall Roof

Warp to Top of the Peak Climb and look east, below the platform you’re standing on. The power moon is in the distance. Jump off of the cliff toward it, throw Cappy with Y, hit ZL and then hold Y. Mario will jump off of Cappy. As you continue to fall, throw Cappy again with Y, then hit ZL and tap Y to dive toward Cappy. (Check out the gallery above to see this in action.) You’ll land on the platform, where you can collect your power moon.

60. From a Crack in the Hard Ground

Warp to Path to the Meat Plateau, and ground pound into a jump to reach the ledge east of the flag. (Jumping after a ground pound makes Mario jump extra high.) Walk up the ramp and ground pound the second bumpy section of the ground to get this power moon.

61. By the Cannon Pointed at the Big Pot

Warp to Top of the Peak Climb and ground pound into a jump to reach the top left side of the rock wall surrounding the Lava Bubbles. (Jumping after a ground pound makes Mario jump extra high.) Walk very slowly (because it’s so, so, so, so, so easy to fall off if you don’t) up toward the cannon in the distance, and ground pound into a jump to reach the two points indicated in the gallery above. After the second jump, you’ll see a glowing section of wall’s top. Ground pound it to get this power moon.

62. Luncheon Kingdom: Master Cup

Like nearly every race in Super Mario Odyssey, there are shortcuts that give you a huge advantage. You can buy yourself so much time that, unlike other races, our advice is to use them on the Regular and Master Cups.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Turn right as soon as you have control of Mario, and hat jump to the closest platform. (That’s jump, throw Cappy, press ZL and then Y.)
  2. Do another hat jump to reach the next closest platform. These two steps will put you in first place.
  3. Use the Volbonan (the fork-like creatures from the Luncheon Kingdom) to flick Mario up the next series of steps. (It’s faster than jumping.)
  4. Hat jump over the rotating platform. (You’ll gain time because you don’t have to wait for it to rotate.)
  5. After you take the second Volbonan up, hat jump aiming for the platform on your right. You’ll either make it in a single jump or land close, where you’ll need to do a ground pound into a jump to reach the platform.
  6. Jump up until you can’t go forward anymore. Turn around and look up to find the third Volbonan. Ground pound jump and throw Cappy at it. Flick yourself up, and you’ll be at the finish line way before any of the Koopas.

63. Stepping Over the Gears and 64. Lanterns on the Gear Steps

Warp to Meat Plateau and enter what looks like the top of a gray chimney near the flag. Inside, you can collect two power moons.

The most difficult part of this level is figuring out the timing for jumping off of Bitefrosts (the shadowy columns with teeth). Here’s what to do: Wait for the Bitefrosts to push you up, wait a moment (let its teeth shake a couple of times) and then jump. You’ll be able to avoid their bites and reach higher parts of the level.

The next most difficult part is controlling the Fire Bros’ jumps. Instead of walking, they bounce. If you try to jump without moving first, you’re likely to miss your jump. The solution is to move for a moment in the direction you’re heading and then press jump when the Fire Bro naturally jumps.

You can see us do both below.

63. Stepping Over the Gears

Make your way through, and this power moon is waiting for you at the end of the level. Here are a couple of tips to help get you through it:

  • It’s easier to jump as Mario. If you find jumping as the Fire Bros frustrating, ditch them and become Mario.
  • Don’t worry about losing a Fire Bro. They respawn, and you can always double back.
  • On the second level (the part with three pillars and a bunch of Bitefrosts), you don’t have to ride a Bitefrost up to the Fire Bro. You can wall jump between the platforms.

64. Lanterns on the Gear Steps

Light all of the torches as a Fire Bro to collect this power moon at the end of the level. Browse the gallery above to see the locations of all four torches. Our advice for power moon 63 above is just as useful for 64.

65. Volcano Cave Cruisin’

For the next two power moons, warp to Volcano Cave Entrance and use Cappy to capture a Lava Bubble. Swim across the hot magma, and hop to solid ground. Enter what looks like the gray top of a chimney.

The trick to getting this moon is not getting distracted. Yes, there are several opportunities to pick up coins throughout this level, but there are, by our rough estimation, 472 billion other places to pick up coins in Super Mario Odyssey. Why not get rich basically anywhere else?

Instead of worrying about coins, worry about avoiding the pink goop. Touch it, and Mario’s butt lights up like a campfire, and he becomes very difficult to control. Spend your time watching where the pink columns of goop are and moving to the back (father away from the camera) and front (closer to the camera) of the blue platform where you’re safe. Keep doing that, and you’ll find the power moon at the end of the level.

66. Volcano Cave and Mysterious Clouds

This power moon is hidden above the area after the blue platform moves vertically and starts to move right to left. You’ll need to move quickly if you want to grab it and then return safely to the blue platform.

See how we did it above, with a combination of ground pound jumps (jump, press ZL to ground pound and then press jump again) and a side somersault (tilt the right analog stick in the opposite way that you’re running, and then press jump). It’s possible to throw Cappy at a platform while you’re jumping and land on the platform you just exposed, as we did with our first and second jumps. You don’t have to do that, but it’s faster this way. Also it looks cool and feels good.

67. Treasure of the Lava Islands and 68. Flying Over the Lava Islands

For the next two power moons, warp to the Odyssey, and head northeast. Use the fork-looking Volbonan to get on top of the wall with the cheese on it, and from there enter what looks like the top of a gray chimney.

You can get both power moons in one journey. Capture a Lava Bubble near the entrance, and:

  • 68. Flying Over the Lava Islands: Look for a canon on a platform near where you begin. Jump into it. You can’t move the canon, but you will see a yellow arrow showing where Mario will fly. You’ll also see the platform containing this power moon. Rocket out of the canon, and when you’re flying above the platform, press ZL to become Mario again. Glide down to collect your power moon.
  • 67. Treasure of the Lava Islands: From the platform where you collected power moon 68, wait for a blue platform to move below you. Jump down onto it, and capture another Lava Bubble. Jump up the makeshift staircase, enter the canon and blast off into the distance. You can find some coins if you swim behind the platform here. When you’re ready to collect your power moon, swim under the platform with holes in it (back by where you landed when you blasted out of the canon), jump and press ZL to leave the Lava Bubble and become Mario. The Lava Bubble will pass through the holes, but Mario won’t. Now treat yourself to a power moon.
