Bowser in the Fire Sea is the second Bowser level. It can be accessed from the big star door of the basement, which requires 30 stars to open.

A Press Counts
In the A Button Challenge, it takes 1 A press to beat the level (with or without the red coin star) in the 120 star category, because the N64 J version is used. However, it takes 0 A presses to beat the level (with or without the red coin star) in the any% category, because the Wii VC version is used instead. The A press is required to jump off the pole, which was saved on the Wii VC version using the Wii VC Rounding to Zero glitch.
