Find the 8 Red Coins is the fourth mission of Bob-omb Battlefield. To complete it, Mario must collect the eight Red Coins scattered throughout the level.


The locations of the coins are:

  • One on top of a rock near the cannon under the island
  • One on the grassy slope at the start of the mountain path
  • One behind bars under the bridge connecting the flat grassy area with the start of the mountain
  • One on the floating island
  • One on the Chain Chomp's pole
  • One above the elevators
  • Two at the 4 wooden poles, where the star spawns

A Button Challenge

This star can be collected in 0 A presses and in real time. Most of the coins can be collected pretty easily without using A. Shell hyperspeed is used to reach the red coin on the island.

TAS Strategy

Mario begins by jumping onto the slope to the right of where he spawns, and sliding down to get forward speed to get the wing cap from the box beside the bridge quickly. Then Mario runs over to the elevator and grabs the Red Coin there, before doing a BLJ on the elevator to get the Red Coin on the small rock, then getting the Red Coin above the Chain Chomp's pole. Mario crosses the bridge and grabs a tree to redirect his speed to grab one of the coins beside the space where the star spawns, then triple jumping and bouncing off of the edge of the level in flight to get the Red Coin on the grassy slope on the mountain path then go back up into the air, then fly down to grab the Red Coin above the tree on the floating island. He then flies towards the bars under the bridge that can turn, and he has enough speed to clip through it and collect the Red Coin. He lands and does a quick triple jump wallkick to keep his speed and fly over to the last Red Coin and land to collect it, then grabs the star.
