Now, you need to ride the Horned Ant Troopers up the side of the wall unless you have a Cat Suit so you can get the Stamp . If you fail to do this head inside the car and ground pound a ? Block that will raise you through the roof. The front car is guarded by a Hammer Bro and Fire Bro, defeat them and get Green Star #3 from the undercarriage before entering the pipe to the boss battle.

When inside, ground pound the ? Block for a lift to the roof and the Stamp (left). The final Star is below the Warp Pipe at the front of the train (right).

Boss: Pernicious Pom Pom

Pom Pom makes a return with more and more clones this time. Unfortunately for her, that pink ninja star gives her away every time. Jump on her head three times after dodging her clones for an easy victory.

When the boss splits, hop on the clone with the pink ninja star to damage her.
