Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla

Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla.

Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla is the first boss galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is located in World 1. The galaxy is unlocked by getting seven Power Stars, including one from the Fluffy Bluff Galaxy. This galaxy introduces the player to LavaFirebars, and other fire obstacles, as well as enemies such as Dry Bones and Thwomps. The boss of this galaxy is Gobblegut


Starting Path and Platform


Mario attacks an Astro Goomba on the Starting Path.

Mario/Luigi first lands on a long path with numerous steps. It eventually leads to the next area, the Castle Exterior. There are Astro Goombas on the path, followed by a Firebar and another Astro Goomba. A Thwomp is ahead. Above this Thwomp is the galaxy's Comet Medal. After the Thwomp is a platform with several statues of Bowser Jr., a Magikoopa and an Astro Goomba. A Lever Switch appears to the left to the platform, which must be Spun in order to open the giant door with Bowser Jr.'s emblem, which leads to the Castle Exterior. 

Castle Exterior

Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla Castle Exterior

Mario runs on a path in the Castle Exterior. Some Dry Bones and Vents can be seen in the picture.

The Castle Exterior is a separate area from the Starting Path and Platform. It is just walls surrounding the next planet, which is hanging in midair. There is a floor sitting in the middle of some Lava with erupting Vents. Two platforms sit in the Lava, and each have one Coin on them. On this floor are two Dry Bones just before some stairs leading to a Sling Star, which will take Mario/Luigi to the Lava Planet. 

Lava Planet


Mario runs on some paths on the Lava Planet.

This planet sits in midair above the Castle Exterior, and can only be reached via the Sling Star in the same area. Much like the Castle Exterior, this planet is covered entirely with Lava, with a few stone paths sitting on top of it. The planet is medium-sized and many Firebars are found on the stone paths and a Launch Star to Gobblegut's Planet is at the end of the stone paths. There are a couple of Goombas and a Magikoopa here too. There is a Tip Network on the stone paths as well as a Life Mushroom at the very end of the paths (along with the Launch Star). 

Gobblegut's Planet


Mario lands on Gobblegut's Planet just before Bowser Jr. shows up in his Robot Cockpit.

After using the Launch Star on the Lava Planet, Mario/Luigi will land on Gobblegut's Planet. This planet is a spherical brown planet covered in craters made of dirt. Bowser Jr. appears in his Robot Cockpit and taunts Mario just before he summons Gobblegut to battle the player.

To get the Grand Star from this galaxy, Mario/Luigi must make their way to Gobblegut's Planet. They must open the giant door with Bowser Jr.'s emblem on it on the Starting Planet. After doing so, the player must then take the Sling Star in the Castle Exterior to the Lava Planet. Here, Mario/Luigi must make their way to the Launch Star on the planet, while making sure they grab the Life Mushroom just before the star. After using the Launch Star, they will land on Gobblegut's Planet. Bowser Jr. arrives in his Robot Cockpit and taunts the player, just before summoning Gobblegut to attack the player. During the boss battle against Gobblegut, the player must Spin all of the red rings on the dragon's body to damage him. After Spinning all of the red rings, Gobblegut makes a loud burp before being defeated. A Grand Star will then be awarded to the player.

Fiery Flotilla Speed Run

BoFiFl M2

Mario battles Gobblegut during Fiery Flotilla Speed Run. Notice the time limit on the screen.

This mission is unlocked when the Comet Medal is collected, causing a Speedy Comet to appear and orbit the galaxy on the map. This mission makes Mario/Luigi battle Gobblegut again, however, getting to Gobblegut is absent in this mission. This is because Mario/Luigi begins the mission on Gobblegut's Planet. Anyway, they must defeat Gobblegut within a time limit of two minutes to earn the Power Star. If they succeed, it will be awarded to them. If they do not succeed, they will lose a life.
