World 2-2 Power-upsGo through the level until you reach the sand waterfall. After you pass that, there is a door. Go in the door. Bomb the wall to the left. Once you get through there, you will notice that there are two pieces of brick (to the right) if you fall off the bombed wall. Take a bomb and put it on top or beside the wall that is in the middle of nowhere. Wait for it to explode to reveal a little thing that gives you Heart, Bomb, or Starman.
World 3-1 WarpAfter you go into the first door, walk into the hole. There is a piece of land with another door located there. After you are in the door, go to the end, then start picking weeds. The red ones are placed at random but are usually near the back. If you want a lot of coins, just throw it where you found it. If you want to warp, just throw it near the vase object.
World 4-1 Quick endingOn World 4-1, get the Princess. Go up the vine, but go to the left. Run and fly to a secret door. Go through the door and use the bombs to blow up the wall. Then, jump over the top of the screen and run left.
World 4-2 WarpTake a potion in the second part of the stage, to the only vase. Enter the door and then the vase to warp to World 6-1.
World 1-3 WarpAt the end of the outside part, there is a vase object. If you carry a red liquid in a bottle and throw it there, you will go down. Take a potion to the last vase (past the door) and throw it. Enter the new door and then the vase to warp to World 4-1.
World 2-2 Extra livesGo through the level until you get to the sand waterfall. After you pass that part, you will see a door. Enter and blow up the wall with bombs to find many Shy Guys walking on a mound. There are three plants at this location. You will find a POW in one of them. Throw it on the ground, which will destroy all of the Shy Guys and results in an extra life. Leave, then return and repeat to get as many lives as needed.
Go to where the first cactus enemy appears. There should be some vases that you can enter here. Enter the second vase, pick the plant to the left (which is a POW box), and leave the vase with it. Bring it outside and wait until you can see the cactus enemy approaching you. Throw the POW box to get three lives. Then, return to the same vase and repeat to get as many lives as needed.
World 2-2 CherriesGo through the level until you reach the sand waterfall. After you pass that, there is a door. Go in the door. Go past the Cherries to pick them up. You need five Cherries to get Starman. Just go in and out until you are satisfied. Also, Cherries give you 100 points.
World 1-1 ShortcutReach the door to enter the cave, but do not go in. Go left until you reach the platform near the door. Do a super jump to reach the top hill. Go right to reach a vine. Climb it and go up the level to meet Birdo.
Defeating WartUse Peach for this battle. Get a fruit and avoid the bubbles that appear from his mouth. While he is harmless and motionless, hover over his head behind him. He cannot hurt you from this point. When he opens his mouth to fire bubbles, throw the fruit at him from the back of him. While he is stunned, fly back over to the front of him. Collect another fruit, avoid the bubbles, and repeat the process five more times to defeat him, most likely without being scratched.

Extra heartsFind a giant enemy and throw them. Do not through them off a ledge or into an enemy. A heart will pop out of them. You can do this as many times as needed if you do not kill them.
Extra livesWhen you enter the first cave on World 1-1, you will find a 1-Up mushroom inside a bubble. Ignore it and go up the vine. At the top you will see a group of five ninjas jumping in a pattern. Pick up one of the vegetables next to them, preferably one of the big ones, and hurl it at the ninjas. If timed correctly, it will kill all of them giving you extra points and an extra life. After this you will see a door just behind the ninjas. Walk out and then return. The ninjas will be there again. Repeat the process to gain more lives.
Each time the spinners start in the bonus round, the second symbol in the first slot is always a cherry. If done correctly, you can guarantee yourself an average at least one extra life per coin.
Go the through the first level as fast as you want. When you get to a log that leads over a ledge, go into the door to the right of it. You will see a vine that leads up to a higher point. Go up that vine. You will see three bushes and five enemies standing to the right. Pull the third one closest to the enemies and you will get a huge turnip. Throw the turnip at the enemies when the first enemy is on the ground. The turnip will bounce until it hits the next one and so on. If done correctly, you will get an extra life. Keep doing this to get as many lives as needed.
When you pick up a turtle shell and launch it, any enemy on the ground it hits will give you a heart. Hit multiple enemies for points.
For every two million points you earn in Super Mario Bros. 2, a head appears next to your high score on the file selection page. For every head, you receive an extra credit in Mario Brothers.

In World 3-3, go to the part in the level where you get the key. There will be a shell you have to pull out just outside of the door where you get the key. Pick up the shell. Throw it and jump on it. Let it run you to the very bottom. Jump off the shell at the very last cliff. Go back up one more cliff, where you can pull out the veggie hearts. The Shy Guys will come falling down, because they can fall of the cliff but cannot reach you if you are on another cliff. They will fall down all the way to the shell. The points will keep adding up, until you get an extra life. Just wait until you get 99. The hard part of this trick is to get away from the Shy Guys and the shell. You may lose one life in the process.
In World 3-3, climb the ladder, then jump over the spark enemies to the door over on the ledge. Find the red grass patches; the last one is a shell. Pick it up. Go back to the bottom of the area, and then toss the shell into the doorway. Stand on the ledge and wait. After the shell defeats enough Shy Guys to earn 1,600 points, you will start earning extra lives. You can easily and quickly earn up to 99 lives.
In World 3-3, climb the steps and go out the door. Go out and turn to your right. Keep going to the right until you reach to the first gold type of door. Enter it. Turn to your right and pick up the big POW. Hold Forward + B to run down the aisle. When you reach the first jumping animals throw while still running. Follow it down (by running with B + Forward) until it stops bouncing and disappears. You will receive two free lives. Return to the door on the far right. Go through it and you will be outside. Go back in and repeat as many times as needed.
In World 3-3, start the level and go through the door. Next, run past the enemies (the bombs that the birds drop) and enter the door at the far right. After going through the door there should be a plant to your right. The plant is actually a gigantic POW box that bounces four or five times. If you picked up the plant and still are holding the gigantic POW box, hold B or R (Run) and throw it at the first Spark Ball. After you throw the box, run after it. If done correctly, the box should kill so many enemies that you should get two to five lives. Repeat this trick to get 99 lives. Sent in by Hod Gavriel In World 4-2, there is a Giant POW in the level. Use it to kill all of the little porcupines around you. Go up the vine and go back down. Sacrifice your energy to get to the POW and kill them again. Go back up and get the Heart by holding Down for a few seconds and jumping. Repeat the process until you get as many lives as needed Sent in by Cesar In world 5-3 come up to the surface and throw the shell on the ground there, it will keep bouncing off of the walls back and forth. Jump and land on the shell and wait for the birds to drop the bombs. The shell will kill the bombs, and after you get a certain amount you start getting 1-UPS, you can do this forever until you have 99.

Sent in by James Roddy In the first level of the game, you can get extra lives over and over. Enter the cave where there are the 5 jumping star guys.

Easy coinsSent in by Hod Gavriel When you use the magic potion to get the mushrooms, do not pick up the surrounding vegetables (which are coins in the magic door) immediately. Instead, find the location in each level where there are the most vegetables that are close together. Drop the magic potion and go in the door. Pick up as many coins as possible. Repeat this once, after doing something that will make the potion reappear (such as climbing a vine, going down a pipe, or entering a door).

As soon as you get on top of the ledge, grab the first grass on the right. It is a potion. Use the potion and go through the door. Now, while in sub-space, go down through the pipe.
