Super Mario 64/Lethal Lava Land
- Location: Basement. Jump into the fireball picture.
- Description: A level with lots of lava, a volcano, and little Bullies that look like bombs.
Lethal Lava Land is the seventh course in Super Mario 64. In the maze-like room in the basement is the entrance that leads you there.
 Star 1: Boil The Big Bully
From where you start, long jump the gap, then take a left and a right. Go across the puzzle pieces, then head right to find the bully. To get the star, knock the bully off into the lava. The star will appear on a nearby platform, but the ones leading to it will fall, so be careful. You can also get to the wing cap, jump three times to fly, then fly past the puzzle pieces. Jump three times again to take off. Fly to the right to the big bully. Defeat him, then run FAST and jump accurately to make it to the star.
 Star 2: Bully The Bullies
Get to the island just past where the first star was. Knock the three Bullies in to the lava, and another Big Bully will appear. Kill him the same way as star 1.
 Star 3: 8 Coin Puzzle With 15 Pieces
Get all 8 red coins. They are all on the puzzle of Bowser that is constantly shifting. If a piece shakes while you are standing on it, jump and kick so the next piece will slide under.
Note: If the picture completes into Bowser, several coins will appear in the middle of the puzzle.
 Star 4: Red Hot Log Rolling
At the start, go opposite of the bridge and the eye on the wire mesh platform. When you reach the volcano, turn right again. Go onto the spiral "S" walkway, and from looking around you will see a battlefield with 2 Bullies on it.Get there and make a right. There will be a platform where you will have to avoid lava shooters. Once at the other side, get onto the log, and roll it to the left a few times. When there, grab the star.
Alternatively, you can get the Wing Cap near the beginning of the course, and just use it to fly over to the star, or (if you got Star 5 or 6 first and are playing on it) use the shell.
 Star 5: Hot Foot It Into The Volcano
Fly in to the volcano or ride a shiny shell up it and make your way to the top along the wall to the star while dodging bullies, flamethrowers, metal crushing things and climbing poles.
WATCH OUT: This is why you should save your game. If you get stuck between a wall and a step and a bully rams into you, you get stuck and can't move. The only way out is to press reset but if you press start in between when the bully rams into you and recovering from the push you can exit course. This is fixed in the DS version
 Star 6: Elevator Tour In The Volcano
Go the opposite way in the volcano and ride the elevators up. A series of poles and floating platforms will get you the rest of the way up.
Get Star 5 or 6 before getting any other star in the level. This way, you can play on that star each time you revisit the level, and you'll have access to a shiny shell.
In the DS version, this Star was changed to Inside The Volcano, and the spinning flames were removed. However, this Star is supposed to be the same Star.
 Star 7: Flaming Silver Stars (Nintendo DS)
Use the Koopa shell in the yellow box to coast around picking up the silver stars. Try not to lose it or it will be hard to get the stars.
 Star 7: 100 Coins
Use the shell (select star 5 or 6 to make it appear), and surf the lava to find as many coins as possible. Run around the two eyeballs for blue coins. Head to the island containing the bullies for 8 coins, and the before entering the rolling log area for eight more. Collect the 8 red coins, and watch for the batch coming from the Bowser puzzle. You can also kill enemies for coins as well.
If you need to collect a few more coins, enter the volcano to finish it off (and to collect one of the two stars.)
