Unhappy 5 Sparkly Stars on NSMB2

I just completed the game with 5 stars, but they don't sparkle.

If sparkle is available and I haven't got it on this go I will have to restart the whole game.

PLEASE TELL ME SPARKLY STARS AREN'T AVAILABLE IN THIS GAME ;_;

Its probably like with SML3D where you have to complete the game without intiating the super white tanooki suit to achieve sparkling stars.

I never used it once but I accidently hit the block halfway through the game (didn't actually use the powerup).

If I haven't got sparkles because of that I will have to start over. ._.

The block is allowed to show up, but if you even hit it, you lose your sparkles. I only have 1 shiny star, but I haven't 100% the game yet.

I restarted then. I can't have no sparkly stars so the only thing to do is to play the game over again!

Just go back to the level you hit the box on and replay it without having the box come up. That should give you back your sparklies, or at least that is what i have heard.

Too late, it was too long ago. I started again anyway.

...Wait, what? I accidentally hit and grabbed the White Raccoon leaf, and I have 4 shinny stars (I'm missing the 3 crowns one)
Also, re-starting the whole damn game just to get an "shinny" star sprite on your file select screen? Really?

I now have two files - my original with 5 non-sparkly stars and my new one I am now halfway through.

You must have grabbed it after completing the W8 boss - as long as you complete the game if you grab the tanooki after your stars will stay.

And yes, I am a total perfectionist and the fact that I don't have sparkly stars makes me very sad.

1. World 8?
2. I grabbed it in World-Mushroom I think. It's the level where you have to ride the lakitu's cloud in order to find the second star coin because it's hidden on a pipe in the sky. I'll give you the name of the level after i check the game again.

3. I still think it's a little too much work just to get a shinny star sprite on your file, which is completely worthless.

That video that was linked says it's okay if the assist block appears as long as you don't use it. That's the opposite of what people said about SM3DL, for which it was said you cannot allow the assist block to appear at all, i.e. you must finish each level the first time without dying five times. After you finish once you can die all you like, the game knows you can make it on you own so the assist block won't ever show up.

So, not sure what's true for NSMB2, but I'm not taking chances. Finish each level without taking any unnecessary detours or risks first, then go back and explore properly.

1. Yes

2. Well then idk. ._.

3. No, I am a perfectionist and no sparkly stars will kill me inside.

I got 5 sparkling stars and the 3 crowns on my profile.

I was so tempted on using the white Tooniki suit for the star-castle level though. I kept on making stupid mistakes when collecting the 2nd and 3rd moon coin.

I had one sparkling star after beating the last level in the last world. I then played on looking for the hidden worlds and the missing star coins. All of a sudden my sparkling star disappeared and I only had an ordinary star. Didn't use that magic block, that's sure.
