RTA Guide/Tippy Toad
Tips for grabbing Toad stars
- On the Japanese version of the game only, Toad's vest will become visible when you are able to talk to him. This can be a useful visual cue.
- On the U.S. version of the game, you are able to talk to Toad 1 frame sooner than on the Japanese version.
For 70 Star
Grabbing the Toad star before entering Tick Tock Clock allows you to do easier movement, but with a slight time loss (~0.3 seconds).
Grabbing the Toad star after completing Tick Tock Clock can save a little bit of time over grabbing it after Rainbow Ride, although this will depend on how quickly you can do the castle movement for either option.
For 120 Star
This movement is a little bit slower than the sideflip ideally, but may save time on average for some players.
