Chapter 2 (part 2)Edit

Go back to the Great Tree via the warp pipes in Rogueport Sewers. Go to the room with the cage and break the floor. This will revert the game back to chapter 2. Leave and return to Rogueport. Hit the blue switch to raise the Petalburg pipe while heading back. If not in peril, fall into the water until in peril. Check Charlieton again if you still don't have Mega Rush. If he doesn't have it, you will need to go back to the West Side Rogueport north loading zone and back to change his inventory. You will need to do this until he has Mega Rush. Go back to the blimp and retrigger chapter 3.

Chapter 3 (part 2)Edit

When you restart chapter 3, it’s kind of hard to explain what to do with the text, but basically you want to advance one text box as another comes on screen to delay the opening cutscene and let the yoshi egg cutscene finish out first.

Here’s a video:

If you did it right, the Rawk Hawk cutscene in the ring will happen. This means you correctly reverted the game to the beginning of Chapter 3.

Go to Grubba’s office just like before. When he’s walking to the Champion room, you’ll run into a guard before the cutscene takes you. This is normal.

When he asks you to sign up to be a fighter, MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SIGN UP.

Now you can walk around his room. Do Bookcase Jump and walk into the vent.

Go to Grubba’s office from vent, check the desk (YOU HAVE TO DO THIS OR YOU SOFTLOCK) and chase after him.

Equip Mega Rush, Power Rush, Power Bounce, and Multibounce.

Proceed to the ring to fight Grubba.

Macho Grubba: Mario: Power Bounce x6. Koops: Ice Storm (hopefully freezes him to skip power up). Mario: Jump x2.

Post Chapter 3 - Peach/Bowser SegmentsEdit

With Peach, go right to computer. Go up elevator. Go right and into next door. Check locker. Go into changing room to change into X-Naut outfit. Go out and right. Talk to Grodus. Change back.

With Bowser, go right and shake last bush. Skim text.

Post Chapter 3 - Glitzville - Rogueport - Rogueport SewersEdit

Take blimp back to Rogueport. Paper into the sewer vent. Go up to door on top left. Try to enter pipe and get rejected. Take pipe down. Flurrie open wall below and go down pipe that's behind it. Go straight to TTYD and get next map piece.

Talk to Frankly. Go left and into alley via left side of building. Talk to Darkly. Head towards west side of town. Go into pipe that previously rejected you.
