This page offers an overview of Good Egg Galaxy. Good Egg Galaxy is located in the Terrace dome and is the first galaxy that you’ll unlock in the dome, since it only costs one Star.

Whenever you do a different star, the galaxy will alter or new planets will be available. Each star challenge will have its own section with a guide on all of the enemies in that level.

Dino Piranha

During this star challenge, you’ll have access to 7 planets. During this challenge, your aim is to reach the Dino Piranha’s planet.


This section offers a list of all the enemies in this level.

  • Goombas - Goombas will simply run at you and try to damage you by touching Mario. To defeat them, spin attack them then run at them to kick them away, or just jump on their head.

  • Electrogoombas - Electrogoombas are like normal Goombas except they’ll electrocute you if they run into you. To defeat them, either jump on their head or spin attack them and run into them whilst they’re incapacitated to boot them into the void.

  • Slurples - Slurples will latch onto Mario’s head, slowly draining life from him as though he is being suffocated. Mario’s movement speed will also be reduced whilst they’re attached to his head. To get rid of them, either spin or shoot star bits at them.

  • Boulders - Boulders will essentially just run over Mario if he’s in their path. To break them, you need to spin attack their ruby core, which is easier said than done!

The Boulders won’t stop for Mario if he gets in their way!

  • Piranha Plants - Piranha Plants will try to bite Mario. They have a fairly large range, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to defeat the plant before it bites.

  • Petapeta - In this level, there is a single Petapeta that can be located on the planet with the stone blocks on it. They are only visible when Mario isn’t moving and if he moves, the Petapeta will be invisible. The Petapeta can be located if it’s invisible by looking out for footprints. If you spin attack where the freshest footprints are, you’ll be able to hit the Petapeta, making him visible and incapacitated. Jump on the incapacitated Petapeta for a bunch of Star Bits.

  • Spiny Piranha Plant - There is only one Spiny Piranha Plant on this level, and he’s located on the planet with the winding paths and blackhole. It is a large, purple Piranha Plant that cannot be jumped on or spin attacked. Instead, you’ll need to spin coconuts at it to defeat it. It has a much larger attack range than the normal Piranha Plant so it can bite you from much further away.

Boss Enemy:

  • Dino Piranha (Boss) - The Dino Piranha will run straight at you. If he catches up with you, you’ll take damage. To defeat him, you need to run around him and use your Spin Attack on his bulb tail to launch it straight into him. Do this three times to defeat him for good.

The Dino Piranha will run at Mario to bite him.

A Snack of Cosmic Proportions

This level has 7 planets. Your goal during this level is to feed the Luma 100 Star Bits and then make your way to the Star Planet.

New Enemies:

This section offers a look at the new enemies in this level that have not yet been seen in previous levels of this galaxy.

  • Thorny flowers - Thorny flowers will prick you if you go near them. You cannot spin attack or jump on them. The only way to get rid of them is to spin a coconut or a green bulb sprout at them.

The Thorny Flower can only be defeated by hitting it with other items, like coconuts.

Other Enemies:

  • Electrogoombas
  • Slurples
  • Goombas
  • Boulders

King Kaliente’s Battlefleet

During this level, you’ll have access to 5 islands. Your aim in this level is to reach King Kaliente’s planet.

New Enemies:

This list offers a look at the new enemies in this level that have not yet been seen in previous levels in this galaxy.

  • Big Pokey - The Big Pokey occupies its own planet, surrounded by coconuts. He will try to attack you by slamming its body on the ground. To defeat him, you’ll need to spin a coconut at him and then run and jump on his head whilst he’s temporarily underground.

The Big Pokey is a sentient desert cactus!

  • Bullet Bills- Bullet Bills will fire from the Military Tank on one of the final planets before you reach King Kaliente. You can jump on them to destroy them. They will damage you if they fly into you.

  • Octopi - The Octopi in this level will fire at you using cannons. You can spin attack the shot coconuts so that they fly back at the octopi and blow their cannons up.

  • Chain Chomps - The chomps occupy two planets in this level. They will run around in the same path and try to bite you if you’re in their way. You can only defeat them if you use the Rainbow Star found on the smaller planet before the Military Tank planet.

  • Lava Bubbles - The Lava Bubbles will appear during the King Kaliente Boss fight. The only way to defeat them is to shoot Star Bits at them. They’ll follow Mario around and try to burn him.

Other Enemies:

  • Electrogoombas
  • Thorny Flowers
  • Slurples
  • Goombas

The Goomba in this picture has spotted Mario and is going in for the kill!

Boss Enemy - King Kaliente

King Kaliente will fire 3 burning coconuts and then a normal coconut in an attempt to hit you. You’ll need to avoid the burning ones and then try to spin the normal one back at King Kaliente in order to damage him. You’ll need to do this three times. After hitting him twice, he will begin to spawn Lava Bubbles, which will burn you upon impact. Just keep hitting him with coconuts and you’ll succeed!

King Kaliente is an evil lava octopus!
