As Mr. L and the Bro-bot fly away the jet engine knock Mario's hands off the table he was hanging from, causing him to fall into the vortex along with the rest of the gang and Boohemoth Boo's. When they enter the vortex, one of the Boo's suddenly turns dark and tries to possess another Boo, but luckily Mario punches the evil out of him. Peach then remembers this place; she had read about it in the Great Mushroom Book.
Apparently, the Dark Dimension is so evil that it can corrupt people that are near it by simply uses others minds. Whenever someone thinks of someone else, the person being thought of is able to be corrupted by the Dark Bugs which exist in the air. She says that she will great special caps to keep the brain from being Dark Bug-possessable. She does with the rocks, but is possessed before she puts one on herself.
She attempts to remove Mario's hat, but he (gently) punches her in the face. She is awoken, and asks what happened. Mario explains it, and she quickly puts on her hat.

Along the way, though, one the Boo's runs into a rock and loses his hat. he then become possessed and starts to try and remove other Boo's hats.
Before Mario can punch him, he removes many caps from the Boo's. Mario commands everyone to think about it, tricking them into not thinking about the Boo's, giving him time to put the caps on. However, some remain possessed, and he trie to punch them while keeped his hat safe. Peach then directs everyone to use some of Bowsers duct tape to tape the hats to their head.
Eventually, Mario and has saved the Boo's, and they continue. Although they meet some scary creatures, Mario is always able to punch them away. However, when they are at the foot of a hill leading to the light vortex, Mr. L appears out of it with the Bro-Bot. He then proceeds to knock off Mario's hat, possessing him. Mario then turns into Mr. M and starts to remove the Boo's helmets.
Bowser then decides to to the only thing he can; burn Mr. M and L. This knocks them out and gives the good guys a chance to put hats onto them. This un-possesses them, and the Boo's carry the bros up the hill. At the top, they all jump into the vortex and land back in the Mushroom Kingdom. However, alot of things are different, like the fact everyone is wearing Fawful glasses...
