How to get all Medals in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

For many platformer fans, part of the appeal of the genre comes from the act of fully completing a game’s list of collectibles or secondary feats. Super Mario Bros. Wonder does an incredible job in this regard by including a vast array of hidden exits to discover, badges to unlock that can change the way you play, and even an entire secret world that offers a considerable increase in difficulty.

But if you’re a completionist, you’ll also want to pay attention to the game’s Medals, which appear on your save file card to indicate that you’ve fully completed certain goals in the game. If you’re curious about how to earn these six additional badges of honor, don’t fret — just read on for how to knock them all out.

Beat the game

You’ll get a Medal for beating the game. This Medal should be the most reasonable to obtain, as you’ll simply need to reach the end of the game — meaning you won’t need to worry about full completion for this one. There’s still plenty of that to come for the rest of the Medals, though.

Collect every standee

You’ll get a Medal for collecting all of the game’s standees. Standees can be placed nearly anywhere within levels and act as a revival spot for ghost players who touch them. There are 144 standees in total that can be purchased from Poplin Shops using flower coins, though the standee you receive will be random. Just keep paying up to eventually collect them all. If you’re tired of gambling on random draws, a Poplin shop in the Special World will allow you to spend 30 Flower Coins to assure you’ll get a new Standee.

Acquire every badge

You’ll get a Medal for acquiring every Badge in the game. Badges can be equipped to grant your character a variety of unique abilities during a level. There are plenty of these to collect throughout your journey by completing certain challenges or purchasing them with flower coins. Check out our list of all badges and where to find them.

Earn every Wonder Seed

You’ll get a Medal for finding and collecting all of the Wonder Seeds in the game. These vibrant seeds can be obtained in multiple ways. You’ll gain one for reaching the end of each level, as well as an additional one for completing any Wonder Effects that you come across in the process.

Find every 10-flower coin

You’ll get a Medal for collecting every 10-Flower Coin in the game. There are three of these giant purple coins in each level, and they’re occasionally pretty well hidden, so you’ll definitely have to do a bit of extra exploration to find them all.

Reach the top of every flagpole

You’ll get a Medal for grabbing the top of every flagpole in the game. There’s a flagpole found at the end of every level, and they’ll frequently have a unique or interesting way in which you’ll need to propel yourself high enough to reach the very top. If you don’t get it the first time, though, don’t worry about it too much, as you can replay levels as many times as you’d like.

Multiplayer games began as purely local events. If you wanted to play with, or against, your friends, there was no other option than to get together either at someone's house or, if you're going even further back in time, at a local arcade. While playing locally is still a great way to play, it isn't always an option. Online multiplayer is not only more convenient most of the time, but it has become the norm for nearly all modern multiplayer games.

In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you might encounter the Gloom-Borne Illness quest, which requires you to find Wild Greens. However, there isn't actually an item called "Wild Greens," making this quest particularly tricky to complete. In this guide, we'll show you where to find Wild Greens in Tears of the Kingdom.
Where to find Wild Greens

The most important thing to note with this quest is the item you need is actually the Sundelion. The game is purposely vague, making it difficult to know what the actual item you need is. These items are found in various locations around Hyrule, but the most consistent way to find them is to visit a Sky Island around the following coordinates: -2,184, 0966, 1637.

How to get the Thunderbolt of Zeus in Fortnite
Thunderbolt of Zeus

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is underway and has brought with it some significant changes to the battle royale map that should shake up things quite a lot. This season is all about ancient gods descending onto the map, which is quite obvious by its multiple mythical locations like Mount Olympus and the Underworld. But these new landing spots aren't the only thing the gods have brought with them to Fortnite, as players can also get their hands on godly new items like the Wings of Icarus and Thunderbolt of Zeus. In this guide, we'll tell you where to find the latter and how it works.
How to get the Thunderbolt of Zeus and how it works
You can find the Thunderbolt of Zeus by defeating Zeus at Mount Olympus or by searching in Olympus Chests or Underworld Chests. It can also rarely be found in standard and rare chests.

This powerful lightning-based item can seriously dish out the hurt — provided you can use it in a situation where you won't be easily shot out of the sky. By pressing the fire button, you leap into the sky to begin unleashing a series of three massive lightning bolts on foes beneath you, with the first two bolts fired out rapidly and the final one a bit slower. You'll only get a total of three charges with this devastating weapon, so you'll want to be certain you make the most of each use and only let loose with it when you feel confident you can wrap up a kill.
