Unlocking the Wing Cap

In Super Mario 64, the Wing Cap can be unlocked once the player has collected 10 Power Stars. It does not matter in which level or missions the Power Stars were acquired. Once you’ve gotten 10 Power Stars, go to the main hall of Peach’s Castle. There will be a beam of light shining onto the Octagonal Sun in the center of the floor. Have Mario stand on that spot and tilt the camera to view the source of the light. Upon looking up at the light, you’ll be transported to a secret course in the sky – and Mario will be wearing the Wing Cap. Fly onto the platform with the large red switch on it and do a ground pound to trigger the red switch. This activates all the red !-Blocks in every course.

How to Use the Wing Cap

The Wing Cap is a power-up that is acquired by hitting a red !-Block. When Mario touches the Wing Cap, it allows him to fly across the course – much like a glider. Tilting the stick up causes Mario to dive, and tilting it down causes him to lift. Mario can take flight with the Wing Cap in a couple of different ways.

Triple Jump: Running forward and jumping three consecutive times makes Mario perform a triple jump. The triple jump allows Mario to jump slightly higher, and when wearing the Wing Cap, it allows Mario to take flight.

Cannon: While wearing the Wing Cap, Mario can fly when he shoots out of a cannon.

When flying, if the camera is giving you trouble, toggle the view to switch from Lakitu camera to Mario view. You might find this works better for you. Changing your perspective can make a huge difference!

Power Star Walkthrough: Tower of the Wing Cap 8 Red Coins

Tower of the Wing Cap Red Coin #1-8: This Power Star is fairly simple to get and is a great way to practice your Wing Cap flying skills. To get the star, you must collect the eight Red Coins in the area. There is a pair of Red Coins on the North, East, South, and West sides of the stage. Fly over to the edge of the area and grab the coins. Then, keep following the trail of gold coins as they circle around the edge of the stage to find all the Red Coins. After getting the final Red Coin, the Power Star appears on the tower, next to the red switch. If you haven’t done it already, ground pound to trigger the red switch first before getting the star and exiting the course.
