Several courses in Super Mario 64 have objects and NPC's that only spawn when certain stars are selected when entering the stage. This can affect the order in which the stars are completed during a speedrun.

This page outlines the different versions of the courses depending on which stars are selected.

  • After "Snowman's Lost His Head" is completed, the snowman head is replaced with a complete snowman on all stars except "Snowman's Lost His Head."
