Top 10 Galaxies In Super Mario Galaxy Games

In the Super Mario Galaxy franchise, there are no less than 90 magnificent galaxies. Here you can choose your favorites.

The Top Ten

1 Freezeflame Galaxy

I love the relaxing Beach Bowl Galaxy. I could just Shell Swim and swing on that vine forever! And the Ghostly Galaxy is great too, gotta love those Luigi's Mansion references, but I agree that the Freeze Frame Galaxy is byfar the best and hardest Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. I find the Freeze Frame Galaxy to be just the right amount of challenging and it seems like in recent years, Mario Games have been lacking that extremely challenging feel.

Fire and ice collide giving tons of unique fire and ice areas to explore.

Gives you the full freeze experience, then the full flame experience, then smashes the 2 together to give a special sort of challenge.

Freezeflame Galaxy is great! It's one of my favorites since I was a child, even though it's difficult at times. I love the music, and the galaxy overall.

2 Toy Time Galaxy

Whenever I think of myself when I was 2 playing this game as the first video game I ever played, this galaxy comes to mind. Coming back to it after deleting my mom's file on accident (she played the whole game), I got nostalgia. - TeamRocket747

Other than Luigi's Purple Coins, the stars here are all fun and creative

This has more cake than the sweet sweet galaxy does, but who cares? nowhere else can you trash a mole in a cannon firing electric balls at a metal spring encased fat plumber on a giant cheesecake.

Why is this one #2? I like the galaxy and all, but the spring mushroom sucks! - sslick9001

3 Supermassive Galaxy

Even though the general idea has been uused in Mario twice before (SMB3 and SM64), it still astounds. From the 1UP trick to the giant Thwomps, this is the best of the best. One problem: you can't stomp the goombas!

I'm always afraid that a goomba is going to stomp on Mario like he's been doing to them.

I love all the big things. They are all slow and look like they�'re bouncing.

The goombas, wigglers and coopas are still losers

4 Melty Molten Galaxy

One of the hardest galaxies in the game, has one of the best bosses in the game (Fiery Dino Piranha), and its music is amazing. The mission with the lava spire is great (especially the one health version). It also has more space to explore than many, many other galaxies.

Nowhere else in the game can you scale volcanoes plunging into magnificent magma oceans as two supermassive stars slowly eat at each other behind you.

Much better then melty monster galaxy - Harri666

The best looking galaxy in the first game by far and has some of the toughest levels!

5 Throwback Galaxy

It's a Super Mario Galaxy Version of Whomps Fortress From Super Mario 64

Put it higher on the list it is amazing

I love Mario 64. I'm also playing with that system as I play with this one.

YES! this gaaxy is great but I am dissapointed we didn't get a remake of bob-omb battlefield - sslick9001

6 Sea Slide Galaxy

I really love the Sea Slide galaxy, the atmosphere Is great and all the stars are super fun to collect

Purple coin takes long

This world is one of the most open and explorable in the game. Only bad thing is the annoying purple coin star. But still probably my favorite level

Sheesh the cosmic Mario challenge is hard

7 Grandmaster Galaxy

The hardest level of all time is my favorite. The perfect run is very hard, but fun at the same time. If you like challenges with a Yoshi in it, fly here. Oh, and get every star In the whole game.

It is arguably the hardest thing I've done in a Mario game

The puzzles in this galaxy and their test of your skills is great. Oh yeah, in the pull star part, it also has that creepy Easter egg from Shiverburn Galaxy, the "Hell Valley Sky Trees".

Dude I can't wait to unlock it

8 Good Egg Galaxy

Not only is this galaxy epic, but the music is even more epic. I beat this galaxy more than once just for the music. - Jammer196

It's the first galaxy you play! Its epic and amazing. It's easy enough for a first level but is challenging and fun. I was mind blown. The music is amazing. I was exploring 30 minutes the first time I played that galaxy. It was amazing. Great first galaxy. Will always be my favorite. Go SMG

Is easy but fun and good music

Always had the best levels

9 Gusty Garden Galaxy

What I really like is the music, the planets, well, everything! Difficult bosses and the 1up planets make it fun.

I hate the flowers

So fun! Also that music doe

10 Beach Bowl Galaxy

Why doesn't Super Mario Galaxy 2 have the Beach Bowl Galaxy music track? Why?! Of course, it is best to ask Nintendo.

Best galaxy of all time! I played it over and over - beatles5

It's a very awesome galaxy.

Mario is better than peinguns👾sry that was mean,but nice gallery,and vacation I guess

The Contenders

11 Buoy Base Galaxy

It's a fun galaxy with some great music! I love how you have to go underwater, and then go up!

The Soundtrack Is Epic - TheKirbyCreeper999

1st the soundtrack is outstanding 2nd the level itself is awesome I love the tower climb aspect of it 3rd it's the only one star galaxy to have a green star which kinda makes it a 2 star galaxy


12 Battle Rock Galaxy

Battlerock is one word.

13 Cosmic Cove Galaxy

What could it look like on the wii you graphics and design? - Harri666

This galaxy was a safe haven for me, and still is. Whenever I'm mad, anxious, or worried, I boot up Super Mario Galaxy 2 and go here. I would sit atop the frozen waterfalls, admiring the view and listening to the calm music. This planet was beautiful and in my opinion needs to be given proper HD glory.

Beach bowl is better

I know how to take down that jelly fish

14 Ghostly Galaxy

Not true! Yes, Bouldergeist is my favorite boss in the Mario franchise, but I doubt that he was the only reason why this Galaxy was added. There were a lot of other great things in this Galaxy too. Take ''Luigi in the haunted mansion'' for example, you get to become a ghost and explore this awesome mansion that reminds you of Luigi's Mansion! Not my #1 favorite Galaxy probably, but still in my top 5 favorites for sure! I also love Buoy Base, Bowser Jr.'s Airship Armada, and Good Egg Galaxies! And I know that this isn't technically a Galaxy, but I also love the Star Festival from the beginning of the game!

Bouldergeist is the main reason this galaxy is on the list.

15 Space Junk Galaxy

Some of the most beautiful music in the game along with an atmosphere that perfectly reflects the "galaxy" aspect of the game. It also has good bosses and creative levels.

The song is amazing and relaxing I like to listen to it before bed to help get myself sleepy.

Great theme with great gameplay

Tarantox was weird, but a great boss fight.

16 Dreadnought Galaxy
17 Shiverburn Galaxy

Those figures, those nightmare provoking figures. They still scare me when I think about them.

Those figures. Those nightmare provoking figures. Still scares me when I think about them.

This galaxy is always really fun to revisit.

HellValleySkyTree also appears in 3d land.

18 Starshine Beach Galaxy

Whenever I come here I just wanna explore instead of doing the mission as fast as I can.

Yoshi takes swimming lessons, end of story

All I want to do us mess around in this galaxy, it's so fun!

I'd love to take a vacation here. It's so serene!

19 Honeyhive Galaxy

I like the cosmic race, but no purple coin or bugaboom

The appereance of the worst character, Queen bee

20 Loopdeeloop Galaxy
21 Space Storm Galaxy

It just feels so AWESOME braving this destructive Space Storm.

22 Hightail Falls Galaxy

The dash pepper was so much fun to use.

I'm surprised about that attitude about this galaxy

It's the worst in galaxy 2

23 Tall Trunk Galaxy

This one isn't the most unique, but it is definitely the coolest. Nothing is better in mario games than sliding gigantic slides, avoiding ennemies and collecting purple coins. I really like this star, and it's bad it's just number 18

I really liked the slide part.

24 Chompworks Galaxy

Mario should have destroyed the whole galaxy if that's where chomps come from.

Beep hoop boperybop,chomp works I serve,to steal stars

25 Melty Monster Galaxy

The music is awesome it is the best music in the game

Isn't it called "Melty Molten Galaxy? "

No, this isn't the melty MOLTEN. that was the first game. this one is from 2.

The lava monsters are this to me hard

26 Bowser's Galaxy Generator

It's just fun (apart from that boss) I hope it reaches top 15. It is not the best but should be on this list - LoneShadow379

27 Slimy Spring Galaxy

Love the music and creepiness, then the wonderfully contrasting summit at the end

Slimy Spring is so beautiful and relaxing. I loved the swimming parts (the chimp challenge wasnt the best). The gorgeous sunset at the end of the level is arguably the most beautiful moment out of both Galaxy games!

Such a relaxing galaxy. Well, minus the chimp level. <_<

28 Boss Blitz Galaxy

I love the boss blitz galaxy

This place is filled with bosses,the comet medal is easy to retrieve and it has a daredevil run

29 Flipsville Galaxy

This place are you kidding me

30 Deep Dark Galaxy

Absolutely great. Tons of cool areas to explore. Great music. Nice difficulty and an amazing boss fight.

You know Guppy is in this galaxy from sea slide galaxy

31 Dusty Dunes

It looked like there was so much more to explore on that huge quicksand planet you start on.

32 Beat Block Galaxy

Who doesn't love the (Beep-Beep-Beep-Boom) that plays through the level? The Double Time comet just increased the epicness within.

This amazing world deserved more levels than it was given.

Please be higher? I love this galaxy

Which video game is it in? Mario Galaxy or Mario Galaxy 2

33 Bowser Jr.'s Star Reactor
34 Matter Splatter Galaxy
35 Cloudy Court Galaxy

It's a fun level with one of the best Mario power ups ever made! - Tyler730

Why the frick is this not higher, LISTEN TO THE MUSIC!

36 Clockwork Ruins Galaxy
37 Bonefin Galaxy

The boss Kingfin or whatever is super great! The way he looks is just awesome. Plus, I love underwater levels.

38 Twisty Trials Galaxy

I just like the name

Tricky level much,the prankster comet

39 Stone Cyclone Galaxy

Very fun and challenging galaxy. Not to bad if you've played the Fast-foe mission from
Beach Bowl from the Ffrst game, though.


This galaxy was so lazy. Its just the cyclone from the beach bowl galaxy in the first game. don't try to convince me this is new, because it ain't. And don't even get me started on the mario squared galaxy... - sslick9001

40 Puzzle Plank Galaxy
41 Sand Spiral Galaxy
42 Yoshi Star Galaxy
43 Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla
44 Drip Drop Galaxy

If I could tell you how those eels frightened me

I will never come over the fright of eels

Those eels are super scary. I quite out of it as fast as I could. well the music is calm.

I found out the eels are called gringails.

45 Fleet Glide Galaxy
46 Dusty Dune Galaxy
47 Bower Jr.'s Fearsome Fleet

Isn't this Bowser Jr.'s Airship Armada? Bowser Jr.'s Airship Armada is my favorite Galaxy because of the Airships mainly. I love Airships! I also liked the boss battle with Bowser Jr. (despite that I find him to be an annoying little spoiled brat) because it is totally awesome, it's also one of the hardest boss fights in the first Super Mario Galaxy (SMG 1) and is definitely challenging! I really think it would have been cool if there was an Airship Cosmic Mario Race, I would have loved running across the Airships with Cosmic Mario! The Airship theme in Super Mario Galaxy is my favorite version of the Airship theme too! Super Mario Galaxy forever!

48 Rolling Gizmo Galaxy

Who put this on the list? I can name 1 person who likes the rolling ball sections. they're kind of fun, but the controls are terrible! - sslick9001

49 Slipsand Galaxy
50 Sweet Mystery Galaxy
