INTRO
Hello this is my FAQ on Mario and Sonic at the winter Olympic Games. No 
one is allowed to put this on their site or copyright in any way. I also do not 
care about grammical or spelling errors so don't email me telling me about 
them. You can email me if you have any tips, records or questions at 
awkerwin@gmail. Now back to the Olympics. To me this game is much 
better than the original: much more dream events, new characters and 
easier to play events. I am a Mario fan and have never played an only Sonic game
so bear with me if my Sonic character descriptions are terrible.


UPDATES
These are all the things I updated in my FAQ. First I added stats to the 
character section. 2nd I did a best time to use special actions in each olympic 
event. 3rd I added a best character to use at for each event. Finally I finally 
got every single VIP for the FAQ. Lastly I got better at the game and got 
lots of better records.  


CHARACTERS
All the characters come in 4 types: skill, all around, power, and speed. 
The stats that I listed are not 100% perfect so bear with me if the numbers 
are 1 or 2 points off. I also added stats for the costumes for characters that 
aren't playable(Dry Bowser, Birdo, Big, Espio etc.) in the mii section. My 
abbreviations are SD-speed, A-acceleration, P-Power, SK-skill 
      
ALL AROUND TYPE
All Around Characters have all around stats obviously
	
MARIO
Everyone's favorite plumber is back to win some medals and show his 
team of people is lots better than Sonic's. He can jump super high, can 
turn into many different forms, and loves to eat mushrooms. He is rounded 
with acceleration, speed, skill, and power. Action button: spin around. 
Symbol: Red M

LUIGI
Mario's brother is back to play the Olympics. Good thing Boos are only in 
Festival mode otherwise he would freak out. Mario might be braver but 
that doesn't mean Luigi isn't either. Luigi is also an all around player but is 
a little bit stronger than Mario.
Action button: torpedo. Symbol: Green L

METAL SONIC
The exact copy of Sonic only metallic created by Dr. Eggman. Metal Sonic 
has all the same stats as normal Sonic except Metal Sonic has less skill 
and more power. To me Metal Sonic is better than Sonic mostly because 
he is cooler. He is cooler because of his sinister laugh. Action Button: 
blasts like a rocket. Symbol: Metal Sonic face

EVENTS
There are many events in this game some can be played single or team. 
There are 27 events not including the events that are played team that can 
be played singular. At every event you can do a start dash by swinging the 
remote down when it says 0 or Go. I did not include any controls with the 
nunchuck. Sorry but I never played with it. In any event except Figure 
Skating Skeleton, Bobsleigh, Ice Hockey, and Curling you can use the 
action button at any time. In any event with skis except ski jump if you are 
going slowly you can swing the remote down to accelerate. Whenever I 
say swing I mean the remote.

ALPINE DOWNHILL
Description: a race through flags.
How to win: Have the fastest time
Controls: Swing Wii remote up=brake, left/right=turn
Tips: As long as you go through all the flags you have a guaranteed win, 
but if you miss 1 or 2 it won't matter because the com is very bad at this 
game. You can do a small speed boost if you touch the inner side of flag. 
WARNING: you lose time for missing a flag and going through a flag does 
not count
Best special action use: at the beginning to give you max speed the entire 
race (unless you miss a flag)
Best characters to use: Sonic, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Daisy, Yoshi for their 
high speed and acceleration if you crash into a flag

ALPINE GIANT SLALOM
Description: race through flags
How to win: Have the fastest time.

Best special action use: same as DOWNHILL
Best characters to use: same as DOWNHILL

INDIVIDUAL SKI JUMP
Description: a competition to get the farthest distance
How to win: get the most points. Points are earned for distance and 
balance.
Controls: Swing Wii remote up=jump and keep balance by turning the Wii 
remote left if high wind pointing right, right of high wind pointing left or 
keep still if arrow pointing up or down.
Tips: If the wind is 3.9m or lower no significant change will happen so you 
can hold the wii remote straight. If it is 4.0m or higher turn the remote the 
opposite way the wind is pointing. Leap at the tip of the ramp. At the end 
swing the wii remote down like a rocket dash.
Best special action use: right after you jump
Best characters to use: Any character will do the job but the ones who 
jump the farthest are the light ones(Bowser Jr. Tails, etc.)

TEAM SKI JUMP
Description: a competition to go the farthest distance and get the most 
points.
How to win: get the most points.
Controls: same as above
Tips: same as above except you jump 4 time: 1 for each person

MOGULS
Description: a competition to get the most turns points
How to win: get the most points. Points are earned by how many turn 
points you get, how fast you go, and how many tricks you do.
Controls: swing remote left/right to collect turn points. Swing up=jump. 
Swing the remote in the pattern to do tricks.
Tips: turn as quick as you can. If you get 18, 19, 20, 21, or 22 turn points 
you will win and if you get 22 points you get a badge.
Best special action use: never or at the very end because if you go too fast
you will miss some turn points
Best characters to use: Any character

SKI CROSS
Description: a race to the finish on skis.
How to win: have the fastest time.
Controls: swing wii remote up=jump and left/right to turn
Tips: You might think about going through the patches of snow with the 
flags as a shortcut. You are wrong. I used to think that too but I got faster 
times going around than going through the shortcut.
Best special action use: near the beginning to give you the most max 
speed time
Best characters to use: Sonic, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Daisy, Yoshi, 
(Wario*) for their high speed and acceleration. *On 3 of my 4 accounts 
I have gotten Ski Cross records with Wario so it could just be me 
but I think he is a good ski crosser

HALFPIPE
Description: a competition to get the most points
How to win: have the most points. Points are earned by performing tricks.
Controls: swing remote up=jump, while in air swing remote in any direction 
to perform tricks. Press any directional button and swing the remote in the 
pattern to do a super trick.
Tips: This to me is the hardest event in the game. What my strategy is to 
do three normal tricks and then a super trick. It works for me it may or may 
not work for you but as I said I am not good at this event.
Best special action use: never becaus eif you go too fast you won't perform as 
many tricks.
Best characters to use: Any characters

speed time
Best characters to use: Sonic, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Daisy, Yoshi for 
their high speed and acceleration 

SPEED SKATING 500M
Description: a race to see who can get the fastest time
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: swing the Wii remote left/right in rhythm. At the end shake it as 
fast as possible
Tips: If you get a number of perfects in a row you get a speed boost 
depending on your character type. Speed 5, All Around 4, Power 4, Skill 5. 
Also the higher the number the longer the speed boost. 
Best special action use: either during the beginning straight(no swinging 
remote) or the ending straight
Best characters to use: Sonic, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Daisy, Yoshi because if 
you get 5 perfects in a row with them you get a very good speed boost. Do 
that over and over and you will get a good record

SHORT TRACK 1,000M
Description: a race to get the fastest time
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: tilt the remote left on the yellow path, shake remote on normal 
ice.
Tips: Once you learn how and when to tilt the remote you get into 
rhythm and you start going really fast.
Best special action use: never or the very last tilt
Best characters to use: Sonic, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Daisy, Yoshi for 
their high speed

SHORT TRACK RELAY
Description: a race to get the fastest time as a team
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: the exact same as Short track 1,000m except when you pass the 
baton swing down at the right moment.
Tips: The same as Short track but when you pass the baton if you do it at 
the right time you will get a speed boost.
Best special action use: same as SHORT TRACK 1,000
Best characters to use: same as SHORT TRACK 1,000

FIGURE SKATING
Description: a competition to get the most points
How to win: get the most points. Points are earned by performing tricks.
Controls: Swing up/down on yellow spots depending on the arrow, spin on 
green swirl spots, and swing up to jump on red star spots.
Tips: If you swing in the center of the star and yellow spot you will get a 
perfect which will give you more points. You can also swing the remote 
like a composer's stick (not sure what called) and you will get bonus 
points. Do it at every opportunity and you will get very high records.
Best characters to use: Peach, Waluigi, Dr.Eggman, Silver, Tails. Not sure 
if this is true but I think skill characters get more points than other 
characters or I just get good records with them

SKELETON
Description: a race down a pipe track alone to get the fastest time
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: Press the wii remote up towards your shirt and lean left /right or 
you could do the easy way just move the remote left/right.
Tips: No matter what under any circumstances ever go off the yellow path. 
If you do you will go slow and have a bad time. If you stay on the path you 
can go to very high mph and go super duper fast. WARNING: If you go 
very fast and crash into a wall you will get knocked off your board and you 
will have to shake the remote to gain balance.
Best characters to use: Bowser, DK, Wario, Vector, Knuckles. Power characters 
can turn easier letting them stay on the yellow path longer

BOBSLEIGH
Description: a race down a pipe track as a team to get the fastest time
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: same as SKELETON
Tips: Same as SKELETON but the path is bigger so it is easier to stay on 
hence the faster record.
Best characters to use: same as SKELETON

ICE HOCKEY
Description:  a competition to get the most points.
How to win score the most goals
Controls:  On offense: Press 2 to pass, 1 to change players, shake to 
shoot. On defense: 1 to change players, 2 to steal the puck, and shake to 
do a steal.
Tips: 1 trick I use is to shoot at the goalie to make him/her dizzy then get 
the rebound and shoot and it always goes in. You can also pass a lot of 
times until it is yellow and is covered in sparks and then you can shoot a 
power shot. It differs between character types. 
The shot will fail if it hits an opposing teammate. Speed: puck gets 
light speed but can be caught sometimes makes goalies dizzy. 
Power: puck gets surrounded by fire and normally goes in or makes goalie 
dizzy. All Around: my least favorite one it 
is covered on yellow-green and almost never goes in. Skill: This can go in 
if you are on the opposing team's side. What it does is cover the ball in 
green stuff and goes towards the goal at a strange angle and can go in.
Best characters to use: Bowser, DK, Wario, Vector, Knuckles, Sonic, Shadow
Metal Sonic, Daisy and Yoshi. I tend to like to have 2 power characters 
because of their often dizzying shots and great power shot, and have a speed
character bring the puck up and pass to the power characters. I use AA 
characters or Skill characters for goalie

CURLING
Description: a competition where players roll stones offensively and 
defensively to get the most points.
How to win: get the most points. Points are earned by how many of your 
color stones are closest to the center.
Controls: In the beginning Hold A and swing the remote like bowling. Then 
tilt the remote in the direction you want it to go. Then shake the remote to 
keep the speed and power that you want.
Tips: You can knock your opponent's stones out of the circle by hitting it 
with your stone really hard. You can block 1 of your stones by rolling 1 in 
front of it.
Best characters to use: Bowser, DK, Wario, Vector, Knuckles. Power 
charcters can easily knock opponent stones away making them an important 
part of any team in some cases 

DREAM EVENTS
Dream events are many of the same events played with items and playing 
in Mario/Sonic locations with some very strange ones too. I will also 
include item descriptions. In any event with coins or rings collect 5 of 
them and you get another action button move! The best characters are the 
same as their olympic counterparts except for SNOWBALL FIGHT and GLIDING 
which don't have olympic counter parts. I am not listing special action 
uses because you get more than 1.

SINGLE DREAM ALPINE
Description: same as Downhill and Giant Slalom
How to win: same as Downhill and Giant Slalom
Controls: same as Downhill and Giant Slalom
Items: Shoe: speed boosts, Star: invincibility, Bomb: set bombs in front of 
opponents, Green Turtle shell: shoots turtle shell that bounces off walls to 
hit opponents. Red Turtle shell: homes in on opponents. Lightning: hits 
opponents with lightning. Fake item boxes: look like item boxes but are not 
and will make you. Re-action button: lets you use the action button again.
Tips: This is much more fun than downhill. Firstly, you don't need to go 
through the flags. They do give you speed boosts though and red gives a 
big speed boost and yellow=small speed boost.  Secondly, you get to use 
items.

TEAM DREAM ALPINE
Everything is exactly the same for team and single except for all your 
teammates times combine d and added up for a final score and 2 items 
the warp ball and star panel. Warp balls if you are in 1st will teleport the 
person on your team in last up to you and star panels you must collect as 
many as your number of teammates and you all become star

SINGLE DREAM SKI JUMP
Description: Fly through space collecting star bits and star panels
How to win: get as many star bits as you can.
Controls: Jump same as ski jump, tilt up/down/left/right to go left, right, up, 
down.
Items: same as Dream alpine
New items: Star panel: collect 3 for score times two.
Tips: Star bits come in many different ranks; Green 10 pts, Purple 30 pts, 
Orange 50 pts. For Star panels I recommend getting 3 near orange star 
bits because they are worth 100 pts in star panel mode! At the end for the 
giant star shaped planet that you finish on land on 40 pts and you will slide 
over to the 100 pts. You MUST be accelerating not slowing down 
otherwise it does not work.

TEAM DREAM SKI JUMP
Same as top but your team collects star bits and you add up the totals and 
that is your score.

SINGLE DREAM SKI CROSS
Description: compete in a Mario kart match and aim for the fastest time.
How to win: have the fastest time.
Controls: Same as Ski cross but you can perform tricks
Items: same as dream alpine
Tips:  Watch out for Goombas and Piranha Plants. Also when you have a 
choice of coins or items always go for the items. To me items are more 
worth it because you can get a running shoe which is much better than an 
action button.

TEAM DREAM SKI CROSS
Just like Dream Alpine the same items and everything.

SINGLE DREAM SNOWBOARD CROSS
Description: a race on snowboards for the fastest time
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: swing up=jump, swing left/right=turn, shake while in air to 
perform tricks.
Items: same as dream alpine
Tips: GRIND!!! There are so many places to grind and it is faster than 
normal snowboarding. My strategy is when there is springs near the end 
that bounce you really high turn left/right whichever you are closest to. 
Then keep your balance and you are grinding.

TEAM DREAM SNOWBOARD CROSS
Same as single dream snowboard cross except all participants' times are 
added up for a final score.

DREAM SHORT TRACK
Description: a race through Eggman's base on skates
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: swing remote back/forth on green and straight areas. Tilt it 
left/right whichever the curve goes. Swing down to pass the baton. Swing 
up=jump
Items: same as dream alpine
Tips: Just play this like a short track match and watch out for screws and 
crates.

DREAM FIGURE SKATING
Description: a competition to get the most points
How to win: get the most points
Controls: exact same as Figure Skating
Tips: This is very fun. It comes in 2 versions: Mario and Sonic. Mario's is 
when everyone teams up to get a star that is flying away. Sonic's is when 
everyone teams up to collect the 7 emeralds and defeat an evil monster. 
Use the same strategy as Figure skating: use the baton strategy and you 
will get a high score. NOTE: the com. gets the same score you do.

DREAM BOBSLEIGH
Description: a race through space and time down a pipe track
How to win: have the fastest time
Controls: same as bobsleigh
Items: same as dream alpine
Tips: collect as many colored balls as possible. After you get about 200 or 
so you will get a speed boost
and when you get more you will go very fast!

DREAM ICE HOCKEY
Description: a competition to get the most goals using Bowser Castle 
obstacles.
How to win: have the most goals
Controls: same as ice hockey
New Items: Mega mushroom: make bigger. Auto charge puck: turns the 
puck automatically to charge shot. Bomb puck: explodes after a certain 
amount of time. POW button: makes everyone on the opposing team 
stagger. Turtle shell: makes the puck a turtle shell.
Tips: get the question mark swirl! It can give you a lot of help like make 
each goal worth 3pts. Also the charge shots are better. These power shots 
can not be stopped by crashing into opponents. Speed: same as Ice 
hockey except it moves around the stage before going straight to the goal 
making it confusing. Power: same as Ice hockey except more powerful. 
Skill: goes slow at first and then suddenly speeds up a lot like Speed. All 
around: zigzags to the goal.

DREAM CURLING
Description: a competition to get the most points
How to win: knock down the most pins
Controls: same as curling
New items: Bomb: turns stone into bomb. Red turtle shell: turns stone to 
red turtle shell with homing qualities.
Tips: use the walls as much as possible they can help you get much more 
pins. Knock down the goomba to get 5 points

DREAM SNOWBALL FIGHT
Description: a competition to get the most points
How to win: get the most points. Points are earned from hitting opponents 
or the giant snowman or the bricks (sometimes).
Controls: use arrow to move, swing to throw snowball, press B to lock onto 
target.
New items: 15 snowball: gives you 15 more snowballs. Charge snowball: 
gives you a special throw depending on your type.
Tips: watch out for Bullet Bills. If they crash into you they will make your 
team lose 5pts. You can throw a snowball at it to make it change direction. 
I like to stand at the line so you can get the items which help a lot.
The types of charge shots are: Power: a red snowball that auto kills 
opponents. All Around: shoots 3 yellow snowballs. Speed: shoot 3 
continuously blue snowballs. Skill: shoots a green snowball that splits 
and homes in on characters
NOTE: while in Mega or using charge shots the points will keep going 
higher up to 5 per shot. Charge shots always kill the target if all 
snowballs hit the opponent.
Best characters to use: Bowser, DK, Wario, Vector, Knuckles, Peach, Waluigi, 
Dr.Eggman, Silver, Tails. Power characters because they have the most 
snowballs and Skill characters because they have the best special shot 


DREAM GLIDING
Description: a competition in the sky to get the most points.
How to win: knock down the most robots/opponents
Controls: lean remote towards you to go up and away to go down. Lean 
the remote left/right to go left and right. You can also shake the remote to 
turn the opposite direction.
Tips: This to me is the hardest dream event. Also it is very hard to find the 
VIPS here. Knock down opponents to get 10pts, red robots 2pts, and 
yellow robots 3pts.
Best characters to use: Any characters

TEAM DREAM GLIDING
Same as Gliding except you don't have separate scores you only have a 
big total one

FESTIVAL MODE
Festival mode is a 17 day competition to get the most points. You can get 
points by taking 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in events or by beating rivals or beating 
training sessions. The max score to get on single is 281 and on team 221. 
Look above for strategies for events. On training or fighting rivals you get 
a rating Good, Nice, or Great. Good=1pts, Nice=2pts, and Great=4pts. I 
only listed how to get a great

getting their badges.

PARTY GAMES

BALLOON ATTACK
Description: a competition to get the most points and pop the most 
balloons
How to win: pop the most balloons.
Controls: First, whoever's turn it is picks an event and you play and 
depending on your rank you get different amounts of balloons. Then you 
pop balloons by pointing the wii remote at the bar and press B to shoot.
Items: bow and arrow: can go throw balloons. Bomb: explodes balloons. 
Mega: makes your crosshair wider and bigger.
Tips: For your rank you get a certain amount of turns: 1st=12, 2nd=10, 
3rd=8, and 4th=7. Shoot as fast and accurately as you can and then block 
other people's shots with your crosshair.

WHEEL CHALLENGE
Description: a competition to get the most points
How to win: have the most points. Points are earned either by beating the 
leader, being the leader and taking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Or you can get points 
by winning a team event.
Controls: If it is you turn press A to stop spinning the wheel. Then you all 
play an event and whoever's face the wheel landed on is leader. Then you 
get points depending on either of anything listed in the how to win section.
Strategy: If you are a high experienced player (like me) you always want 
to be leader. Being the high experienced player means you probably win 
every event so you get 30 points. If you are not high experienced hope 
that you are not Leader. Because if you are and you take less than 1st you 
will get 10pts taken away from you for each person who beat you.

PANEL FLIP
Description: a competition to get the most panels covered with your color 
(red, blue). 
How to win: cover the most panels with your color red (if you are battling 
the com).
Controls: whoever's turn it is picks an event. Then you play. Finally you 
use the arrows to move
Items: Chao: makes a whole row or column of your color. Lightning: 
makes an opponent lose his/her turn/
Lakitu: picks up a character and places him/her to any designated area. 
Running shoe: gives you one more mobility. Boo: steals opponent's 
mobility.
Tips: Go for the item boxes without a thought. Even if you get no panels 
covered it is still worth it.

SHOPPING
Shopping is a good change of pace from all of the events. There are 5 
stores Secret, Music, Sports, Boutique, and Library. You should buy 
everything in every store because there are 5 badges for getting all items. 
I will not list every thing in the sports shop, boutique, music room, or 
library. 

MUSIC ROOM
You can buy any music that you have heard from the game here. Also you 
can buy some Mario/Sonic songs too. Those Mario/ Sonic songs can be 
played during events after you buy the music request item (look at the 
Secret shop section).

SECRET SHOP
Here you can buy many things. Music request item lets you play any 
Mario/Sonic song you have bought from the Music Room (above). King 
ghost pass lets you race the best time. Special Mission Pass lets there be 
5 blue coin locations in 6 stages. Decorations for the town are spring, 
mushroom, fire flower, turtle shell, star, emerald, flag pole, stage clear 
panel statues, item boxes, 'mark boxes, Mario snowman, Sonic 
snowman, mascot flags, character flags, and a Christmas tree. You can 
also get books that describe Mario/Sonic characters (which helped me 
write the descriptions).

SPORTS SHOP
Here you can do many things: buy banners, decals, and patterns and 
decorate your bobsleigh, hang glider, snowboard, and skis

BOUTIQUE
Here is where you can personalize your Miis with hats, gloves, suits, 
costumes, boots, and hats. Also you can dress your Mii in Mario/Sonic 
characters by winning 5 1st or gold medals with the character. Even better 
you can get costumes of Rivals: Rogue, Dry Bowser, Dry Bones and 
Omega. Finally you can dress as VIPS Birdo and Big the cat.

also has a different song to it than the other shops.
