Chapter 1: Peach's Castle
Mario and Peach were standing atop the balcony of Peach's castle. Suddenly, parts of the castle came apart as Bowser's Castle rose from the ground, similarly to how it did in Paper Mario. Bowser jumped onto the balcony and grabbed Peach, preparing a fight with Mario. (Stage 1: Peach's Castle Balcony) (Defeat Bowser) (Playable Characters: Mario) When Bowser was defeated, he roared and hopped into his Koopa Klown Kar and to the roof of the castle.

(Stage 2: Peach's Castle Roof) (Defeat 30 enemies) (Playable Characters: Mario, Yoshi) Mario was now using his amazing jumping abilities and on Bowser's Airship. By now, Bowser was taking desperate measures. He summoned one of his strongest minions, Giga Lakitu. The Lakitu threw a giant Spiny Egg at Yoshi, who went flying far away. Mario then proceeded to fight. (Boss Battle 1: Giga Lakitu) (Playable Characters: Mario) After Giga Lakitu's defeat, he transformed into a trophy. Mario picked it up and examined it. While he did that, however, Bowser sent his airship flying away with Mario still on it.

(Stage 4: Puzzle Island 2) (Get to the Power Star) (Playable Characters: Yoshi, Captain Toad) Upon arriving at the third island, the Power Star was right in front of their noses.

However, Wario had put a Bob-Omb on the Power Star, which blew up the star as they flew. They landed on a cloud.
Chapter 3: Cloudy Court
Mario remained on Bowser's Airship, trying to figure out how to get off. Bowser's back was turned, facing the Arwing and firing cannonballs at it, while the Arwing fired back. Taking this opportunity, Mario and Peach jumped off the airship and onto a nearby cloud. (Stage 6: Cloudy Court Top) (Playable Characters: Mario, Peach) After a descent, they found trophies of Yoshi and Captain Toad, who were transformed after the explosion. Reviving them, they agreed to travel together and get off of Cloudy Court. (Stage 7: Cloudy Court Middle) (Playable Characters, Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Captain Toad) Meanwhile, in a temple in the top of Cloudy Court, Pit watched in the fountain as Mario's team were stealthily attacked by mysterious creatures made of fire known as Emberlettes. He ran to Palutena and asked if he could go help. Granting him permission, Palutena gave him his bow as Pit jumped out of the temple. He soon arrived at the bottom of Cloudy Court and took out a few unseen Emberlettes. The team plus Pit prepared to fight back against the oncoming attack.

Up ahead, they saw members of the Koopa Troop, Tiki Tak Tribe, and the Kremling Krew carrying bananas away. The two apes jumped from the treehouse and prepared to fight off the baddies. (Stage 10: Great Jungle Middle) (Defeat 40 enemies) (Playable Characters: Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong) When the bananas were rescued, the Kongs celebrated. However, they found one more foe: King K. Rool, who had most of their bananas as well as Dixie Kong. The two Kongs chased after him.

Rool, but he jumped off and onto a cliff and summoned one of DK's old foes, Tiki Tong. A boss fight then began. (Boss Battle 2: Tiki Tong) (Playable Characters: Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong) Tiki Tong turned into a trophy, which King K. Rool grabbed in anger. He ran to the waiting Koopa Klown Kar of Bowser Jr. Flying off, he dropped Dixie into the arms of Donkey Kong. Angered that K. Rool still had his bananas, Donkey Kong ran off, following the two villains.
Chapter 5: Jungle Shore
The destroyed Arwing lay on the jungle shore. From it stepped Fox, a bold and daring pilot. He decided to explore the beach that lay ahead. (Stage 12: Jungle Shore Part 1) (Playable Characters: Fox) Fox soon found a fellow pilot named Captain Olimar, whose Pikmin and him were cowering in fear at the nearby volcano, which soon began erupting.

(Stage 13: Jungle Shore Part 2) (Playable Characters: Fox, Olimar) The two arrived at the base of the volcano and saw a being made entirely out of fire in a black cloak. The being, known as the Fire King, approached the two. The King summoned a large horde of Emberlettes to finish covering the jungle in fire and magma, as well as stopping the two heroes. (Stage 14: Jungle Volcano Base) (Defeat 50 Emberlettes) (Playable Characters: Fox, Olimar) Most of the Emberlettes were defeated, but a lot remained, still attacking the two and burning the jungle. Fox decided that his only option to escape the fire was to run up the volcano, with Olimar right on his tail.

Mario and co. headed out from Cloudy Court and followed a trail of fire. (Stage 15: Eerie Forest Entrance) (Playable Characters: Mario, Peach, Captain Toad, Yoshi, Pit) However, the team soon came to a fork in the road, with Kirby standing right in front of it, trying to decide which way to go.

(Stage 16: Eerie Forest Right Path) (Playable Characters: Mario, Peach, Pit) Upon going through the path, Mario realized that Peach had been taken by the Koopa Troop yet again!

However, the Fire King soon appeared, watching the two as they trekked toward Eerie Forest. Intrigued, he summoned a great being of fire, the Fire-type dragon Reshiram. Fire King attempted forcing the dragon over to the heroes, but Reshiram went on a rampage and knocked Fire King far off. Reshiram then flew to Palutena and Peach, initiating a fight. (Boss Battle 3: Reshiram) (Playable Characters: Palutena, Peach) Upon defeat, Reshiram was transformed back into a trophy, which Peach decided to hold onto. They then continued their journey to rescue Mario and Pit.
