    Don't you have to use your star energy to make him vulnerable to damage?

    I assume it has to do with using Watt since her attack ignores defense.

    No, I'm sure it's using the star spirit powers. Though Peach Beam is probably an exception since it doesn't actually use up your star energy.

    Confirming that Peach Beam is allowed, as it is necessary to finish the fight.

    peach beam (as well as star beam) don't use star energy anyways so..... using things like refresh or smooch isn't allowed (so no star storm finisher unless you brought the item version)

    This should be marked as missable

    Technically it's missable, but considering that the game doesn't save after you finish it, it's not really an issue - your last save is right before the final Bowser fight anyway.

    Equipping Double Dip and having lots of health and FP items helps.

    All I really did was just spam the jump charge thing and then Power Bounce him into submission.

    Thanks for the tips, guys. Hope I pop this when I wake up.

    If you combine HP Drain and Power Bounce you can regenerate up to 5 HP per turn. With that trick I was able to win without even using items.
