    I've played this game reasonably thoroughly and decided to look up the requirements for 100%. I was shocked to see the sobering accomplishments that must be done. Caution: there is one spoiler (hint: if you played galaxy 1, it's no big deal.) I try to find things out for myself in games, but I'm glad I researched before I went deeper into attempting to reach 100%.

    but you must get the final one by unlocking "?" stages with streetpass.

    They 'respawn' daily. So just put the game down for today, and check back tommorow. There will surely be a new one that appears.

    Or, datehax!

    I'm nearly 100% now. Got all the Star Coins and Golden Flagpoles on my first playthrough, so now I'm just replaying it all as Luigi.

    I've got about 5 special worlds left now before I finish it again. I was expecting doing it all again to be a real pain, but I've actually loved it. The levels in SM3DL are awesome, and I could play all of 'em hundreds of times without getting bored.

    What's the maximum number of star coins you can get(including the street pass challenge ones), I have 312 so far.

    I suppose to really 100% it, you have to also have shiny stars in your profile. They'll come as long as you don't end up getting the 'Special Tanooki' suit to appear.

    I already got it to appear but I'm not going to go through the whole game again.

    You can get 322 Star Coins in game without streetpassing anyone. You will get new star coins in the old mystery boxes if the box was from a streetpass tag!
    Other than the 5 save file stars, it seems that you can made the 5 stars glitter if you Never have the Super/Help Item Blocks appear: Never die five or more times in a row on any level. The Super/Help Item is the invincible tanooki suit.
    So far I have completed the entire game with all 5 glittering save file stars...currently trying to get best time as low as possible! :P

    I'm sure I got the invincibility suit once, but I don't remember which level. Still, I'm replaying as Luigi, so as long as I complete it all without it this time through, I'll get my shiny stars :D

    I have 5 shiny stars and completed S8-Crown with only 305 coins. Died 34 times total with no help from "help blocks?". Does does count as 100%? I have 0 streetpass for this game.

    I had the Special Tanooki Suit appear once, but I didn't use it. Yet, my file is still plagued with no shine. Damn. Oh, well. I've already started my second playthrough, 100%-ed the first 8 Worlds, and they're the only ones the Special Tanooki suit shows up in, right? There were plenty of times during the special worlds where the Special Tanooki suit could've shown up but didn't. So I have high hopes for playthrough 2.

    This game sounds a lot more challenging when you 100%
    I don't know why everyone is complaining the game is too easy.
    Oh and how do you get a gold flag?

    Gold flag=Yellow flags. Just always reach the round item at flagpoles. Using the Tanooki suit = 101% gold flag.

    Would using a long jump also make it very likely to get the gold flag?

    Man that is bullshit you can't let the boxes even appear. I guess shiny stars don't mean anything, but if Miyamoto ever swings on by and demands to examine my save file, I'm gonna be pissed

    Well if you let the box appear it means you died 5 times on the level. The shiny stars = less than 5 deaths on each level.

    Yeah man, you die a ton hunting down elusive coins. This restriction is telling people you must reload your save every 5 deaths or no shiny. What's the point ?
