What Happens When you 100% Super Mario Odyssey
Given Super Mario Odyssey’s incredible length and scope, it’s not surprising that some players would be a bit curious to see what, if anything, happens when you 100% the game. Does anything happen when you sit down and gather every Power Moon, Regional Coin, and complete every level and challenge?
Well, upon gathering the final main Power Moon (You can technically gather more by purchasing them) and powering up the Odyssey with it you will be rewarded with three things.
First, the Odyssey’s sail will turn gold, signifying you have gathered every mainline Power Moon in the game. Not to mention it just makes your ship look fantastic.
Second, you’ll be informed that a new painting has appeared in the Wedding Chapel on the Moon. Going over will reveal a new painting of Bowser in the entry hall. Congratulations, you just unlocked the Hard version of the final boss fight. Jumping into the painting will trigger the final sequence of the game, beginning with this hard battle. Bowser is more challenging than he is in the main game, though, if you’ve made it this far he’s not going to be much of an issue.
Upon beating Bowser the ending sequence will start as it does in the main game with Mario and Peach making their harrowing escape from the Wedding chapel. This sequence is exactly as it is in the story and triggers the same ending as well. However, at the end of the credits you are treated to your third and final reward for completing Super Mario Odyssey.
Right after the thank you message from Mario himself you’ll be shown a postcard of all the characters in the game. A final memento commemorating the no doubt many hours it took to achieve this; and a celebratory note to end the game with.
