World 6: Bowser's Galaxy Generator
Bowser's Fortified Fortress
This is the final stage of World 6, and the last area of the main story. Be ready and collect as many 1Ups as you think you'll need. Upon entering the area, move ahead to encounter a group of Hammer Bros, who will in turn release a giant flower, ride this flower below and take the launch atar to the next area.
You'll be in a large cylinder planet and will make use of your spin drill to bypass the enemy bills. This will lead to a launch star that will take you to a check point and a 2D zone. Use your Cloud Flower along with the wind current to move and ascend. However, you will not have a big enough height advantage and will need to backflip to reach higher areas.
In the next section, you'll need to make heavy use of Yoshi, and if you lose him, many of the oncoming puzzles will become much harder, or downright impossible. Free Yoshi from the egg on the right, advance left through the flowers and lava and you'll encounter several Boomerang Bros and a switch. Finish off the foes and hit the switch. This will reveal a long corridor and a fire pepper. Have Yoshi eat this power up and traverse the long path, dodging the walls before the lava consumes you.
Ride the purple moving platform, being sure to destroy the Magikoop that approach. When the platform separates, use Yoshi's flutter jump to avoid the lava enemies, and then leap back. You can also grab the ballong fruit in hopes of dodging the enemies, but it may be too slow. Make it to the last Bowser door and smahs it open with meteorites, much like previous levels. The final boss awaits you.
Nearly identical to the previous two fights with Bowser, however like before his attacks become stronger and more intense. Everyone one of Bowser's attacks will let out fireballs and shockwaves, making it important to keep moving. He also recovers much quicker, so you'll need to send the meteorites back at him as soon as possible. After six hits he will drop the final Grand Star.
However, the fight isn't over yet. Bowser will rise once again for the final battle. Bowser will fly through the air, advancing until he comes into range to make a punch. Your only hope is to ground pound the various meteorites scattered around. Leap to a new one as Bowser makes an assault. After four hits, Bowser will finally be finished. Grab the Grand Star to complete the main story of Super Mario Galaxy 2.
