World Flower-12: Boss Blitz

You have 500 seconds to clear 5 bosses and collect all 5 Key Coins to enter the Warp Box and face Motley Bossblob in a rematch. It’s best to leave the Hisstocrats till the end so you can utilize the Super Bells and keep them till the end. Start with Boom Boom , who you’ll want to stick close to. Bounce on him three times as quickly as possible, avoiding his shell attacks inbetween bopping him on the head. Next up is Pom Pom who you need to also bop three times. Remember that the clone you need to hit is the one with the pink ninja star and green bow.

Defeat boom Boom and Pom Pom using the same tactics as the previous encounters.

King Ka-Thunk is next and quite quick to defeat. Stay in front of his face so you can quickly dodge and leap up on his weak point three times. Boss Brolder can be a time consuming battle but if you’re slick you can shave off some time. Grab a Brolder and chuck it at the boss, then snag another Brolder and run around. When Boss Brolder is done spinning, immediately hit him again, saving a bunch of time. The third hit you’ll have to wait for but this is a quick way to end the battle.

You'll have to face off against King Ka-Thunk and Boss Brolder again.

Grab Green Star #1 after the battle and head into the final Warp Box to face off with the Hisstocrats . In this battle you must fight both enemies at the same time and while it’s not hard to avoid the projectiles landing from above, the battle can take a while. Grab a Super Bell when you can then bounce off on of their heads, timing the leap so you can bounce to the other! This two-for-one deal will really speed up your progress and make the final battle less rushed. Collect Green Star #2 after the battle and the final Key Coin when you return, then off to Motley Bossblod . This battle is the same really, just avoid the Bossblod when he plummets, leaping over the shockwaves and collecting the Double Cherry when he scatters. Use Claw Dives to quickly hit the clown and repeat for three total hits.

Finally, you'll need to beat a pair of Hisstocrats and Motley Bossblob.

Snag Green Star #3 then warp to a Green +Clock that should provide some comfort before you cap the Goal Pole.
