Mario at the very beginning of the mission "Giant Eel Outbreak" in the Drip Drop Galaxy.

The Drip Drop Galaxy is a galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. It has a large planet which is 99% water and 1% land (if you don't understand, it is nearly covered in water with a few islands). The planet's core is sandy. Sitting on the core, at the bottom of the ocean, are some Boulders. There is what appears to be a sunken Airship, Starshroom and a volcanic vent here too. The planet is inhabited by 13 Penguins, Gringills, various fish, including a Porcu-Puffer inside a Treasure Chest. Torpedo Teds are shot from under the ocean.


Starting Planet

This planet is made mostly of water with the exception of a sandy core and two islands. Three Gringills patrol the waters, keeping the Penguins on the land. Under the water are many rock formations, and what may be an Airship, which was crashed by a careless pilot or shot down. There is also a crashed Starshroom, which landed here probably from the same reason as the Airship.


Giant Eel Outbreak


Mario during the mission "Giant Eel Outbreak".

This is the only mission of the Drip Drop Galaxy. Three Gringills are swimming underwater, and because of this, the Penguins cannot fish anymore because they are eating the fish. Mario agrees to help them out. He must dive to the bottom of the sea and find a Green Shell or Red Shell. Mario must then search for a Gringill and throw the shell at it to defeat it. After all Gringills are defeated, the Power Star will appear on top of the sunken ship. Finishing this level and collecting 55 Power Stars will unlock the Bonefin Galaxy in the Engine Room. Mario can defeat the Gringills by colliding into them with the shells, but this damages him, so Mario must then search for a Coin.
