Ruins Cat Shines Guide – 3D World + Bowser’s Fury Walkthrough

Our Ruins Cat Shines guide details all 20 Cat Shines in the Ruins area in our Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury walkthrough.

Like the three other main areas in Lake Lapcat, the Ruins area has a total of 20 Cat Shines to find and collect split between four islands. Each of these islands have five Cat Shines each. The area also has the Ruins Giga Bell that’s used to smack Fury Bowser around once he awakens. The amount needed to unlock the massive power-up changes each time you defeat Bowser starting at 5 Cat Shines and moving up to 15, 20, 40, and finally 50.

The Ruins area is unlocked after defeating Bowser for the first time. Need a Cat Shine from a different area? Use the links below to jump to each section!

Slipskate Slope

Make the Lighthouse Shine

With Fury Bowser defeated the first time, ride Plessie along the guided path until you reach the Ruins area. Walk up the serene path and use the Clear Pipe Cannon to reach Slipskate Slope. Hop into the golden skate and start moving forward. You are not required to go through the golden rings, those just give you coins! Jump over gaps using the springs, avoid touching the spiked walls, and make sure to use the dash panels to jump over to the rolling platform. Jump over the ramp and land near the Cat Shine.

Blue Coin Bustle

Appears after the lighthouse Cat Shine.  Hit the blue switch at the entrance and hop in the golden skate. Slowly slide over to the left and the right over the spikes to collect the first six Blue Coins. Next, avoid the dash panel and collect the five Blue Coins on the right, then enter the tunnel and jump on the clouds to get nine more Blue Coins. Three more can be grabbed by going to the right of the dash panel ramp. Collect the nine Blue Coins from inside the rolling tunnel. Collect three more after the tunnel and then a final three at the end.

Key to the Cat Shine

Appears after the Blue Coin Cat Shine. Return to the entrance and grab a Propeller Box. To get the Cat Shine out of the locked cage, we’ll need to find and bring the key. Doesn’t matter how you get there, just make it to the end to find the key where the Cat Shines previously appeared. To bring it back, walk up the slope facing the entrance and follow the path on the right. This will take you to a ledge you can follow. Eventually you’ll reach platforms sticking out of the wall that can be used to reach the area above.  Continue climbing walls using the platforms until you return to the cage.

Five Cat Shine Shards

Blast the Fury Blocks

Clash with Cat Boom Boom

Time for a fight with Boom Boom. From the entrance, hop into the water on the right and look for an opened gate. Swim inside and go up the stairs to activate a boss battle. When Cat Boom Boom tries to spin, simply jump and bonk him on his head. As retaliation, Cat Boom Boom will shrink into his shell and bump around the arena. Afterwards, repeat the process but this time avoid the invisible shell. Jump on him a third time to get your Cat Shine!

Cat Pom Pom’s Counterattack

Final Bout with Cat Boom Boom

Appears after the Pom Pom Cat Shine. Return to the area with the ? Blocks and reach the gate above  once again. Jump on the nearby Cat Bob-ombs and pick it up. Throw it (or stand in front of and take damage) at the brick blocks inside the gate. Drop down to the arena and fight Cat Boom Boom just as you did before. This time you’ll have to keep an eye on the spikes as they pop out from the ground. They’re timed so you can predict where to avoid!

Five Cat Shine Shards

There are five Clawswipe Colosseum Cat Shards to collect. The locations:

  • Look for a small pond of water near the entrance to the area along the left side of the colosseum wall. Cat Shard inside.

Blast the Fury Blocks

So Close Yet So Far

Lots of invisible paths and walls! Parts of these walls and paths will only appear if very close, but a fireball from a Fire Flower can help temporarily light up the path. Make sure to grab one from the ? Block early on.  Run up the path with spiked rollers and use them as a guide to see where the path is! Ground pound the wooden crates and use the path below to reach the middle of the tower. Keep following the path. Once you reach the four rolling spikes, jump the middle to drop down the tower and towards the Cat Shine.

Ground pound through the hole and collect the Blue Coins down below. Finally collect the remaining Blue Coins but make sure to jump over the gap to the last six!

Hurry! Watch Your Step!

  • After collecting the purple switch Cat Shine, jump down to the invisible path to get this Cat Shard.
