ttlefield is located on the first floor of the Castle, through the door on the far left. Bob-omb Battlefield takes places in a grassland area with many trees. It contains several mountains and hills which can be climbed. Bob-omb Battlefield is always in constant war, the Black Bob-ombs vs. the Bob-omb Buddies. Mario's enemies include Bob-ombs, Goombas, a Koopa Troopa and a Chain Chomp, the only one in Super Mario 64. There are 3 Wing Cap Blocks (which can be used after unlocking them) and 6 cannons in the level. There is also no way to fall off the course here, because it is not floating in the air.

Star 1: Big Bob-Omb on the Summit

In the very first level of Super Mario 64, Mario has to get to the summit of the big mountain of Bob-omb Battefield to fight the Big Bob-omb, an big enemy to the Bob-omb Buddies. All he has to do is straightly following the path with starts at the beginning of the level. There are several obstacles and enemies on his way, including Goombas, the Chain Chomp, water balloons and big metal cannonballs which roll down the path. When reaching the summit, Mario is confronted by the Big Bob-omb. Mario can defeat the giant Bob-omb by picking him up from behind and throwing him to the ground. When Mario misses and throws the Big Bob-omb from the summit plateau, he will come back and Mario will have to start over again. On defeat, the Big Bob-omb releases a thumb|300px|rightPower Star. If you don't get it, you can siply watch that vid starting from 1:48.

Star 2: Footrace with Koopa the Quick

For the second Power Star of the level, Mario has to race the Gargantua Koopa Troopa Koopa the Quick. Mario has to reach the flagpole at the summit of the mountain before Koopa the Quick does. He has to use the same path as previously. This Star isn't too difficult since Koopa The Quick isn't especially fast and take a rather long path. Using one of the Cannons scattered across Bob-omb Battlefield will make Koopa The Quick refuse to give away the star.


Star 3: Shoot to the Island in the Sky

In the original Super Mario 64, the third Power Star of Bob-omb Battefield is found in an ! Block on a floating platform/"island", which is floating near the big mountain. In order to get it, Mario first has to talk to the Bob-omb Buddies at the beginning of the level to open the cannons, then use a cannon to shoot himself to the island and get the star. The player should run to the cannon in the middle of the first field, look for the cloud shaped like a cat, and aim above its tail.


Star 4: Find the 8 Red Coins

For the fourth Power Star, Mario has to find the eight Red Coins of the level. They are scattered throughout the battlefield. One is on moving platforms besides the main path, one on the pole of the Chain Chomp, one on a small hill near the Chain Chomp and the Koopa Troopa, two near the marker for the Power Star itself, one on a slide down the mountain, one on a tree on the floating island and one in a trench. When Mario has collected all Red Coins, the thumb|300px|leftPower Star appears.

Star 5: Mario wings into the Sky

Mario has to fly through five rings of coins in the air using the Wing Cap and collect all five middle coins of the rings to make the Power Star appear. Taking off from the Island in the Sky, he has to use the Wing Cap and shoot himself from a cannon to have enough speed to hit all the rings, as well as being able to fly upwards. The Power Star appears in the meadow near the Star Marker. thumb|300px|right

Star 6: Behind Chain Chomp's Gate

The sixth Power Star of Bob-omb Battlefield is located behind iron bars near the Chain Chomp. To get it, Mario first has to free the Chain Chomp by Ground Pounding its pole three times. Freed, it will destroy the iron bars and Mario will be able to get the star. thumb|300px|left

  • Bob-omb Battlefield is very similar to Wario's Battle Canyon, as both feature a war between Bob-ombs.
  • The painting of Bob-omb Battlefield reappears, like many others, on the second floor of Princess Peach's Castle, but Mario cannot enter it from there.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, if one plays at least 50 hours of brawling, then the level's theme song (simply known as Main Theme Super Mario 64) wil be unlocked on the Delfino Plaza stage.
  • In the DS version of Behind the Chain Chomp's Gate it is possible to use Luigi's Flower Power ability to get the Star instead of Ground Pounding the Chain Chomp's stake.
