Footrace with Koopa the Quick is the 2nd star in Bob-omb Battlefield. The star can be collected by talking to Koopa the Quick to start his race, and getting to the flag on the mountain before he does. The race prohibits Mario from using the cannon, which Koopa the Quick claims is "cheating". However, the use of teleports and the wing cap is allowed. Also, there are no protections against finishing with a time that would be normally impossible without glitches, so all forms of hyperspeed are allowed.

Given that this star has a timer built in, minimizing the in-game time has been a long standing challenge since the early days of Mario 64. Using a glitch, it is possible to finish the race with an in-game time of 0.0 seconds[5], but the star is not obtainable, because KtQ deactivates when Mario reaches the flagpole and doesn't get reactivated.
