Super Mario 74 Extreme Edition

Super Mario 74 Extreme Edition (SM74EE for short) is a ROM Hack made by Lugmillord. It's the sequel to Super Mario 74, and was released on Christmas of 2012. It contains 157 stars, and a majority of the levels from the original Super Mario 74 make a re-appearance. However, a lot of them have been mirrored and made extremely difficult, with alterations like underwater sections and even solid ground being replaced by excessive lava falls or bottomless pits.

For a few months, it was considered to be the hardest Super Mario 64 hack ever, until Star Revenge 2: Night of Doom came out in July 2013, just over half a year after this hack was released. It was then to be considered the second hardest SM64 hack in existence, just below Night of Doom, but since then most of the kaizo hack releases have surpased Super Mario 74 Extreme Edition's difficulty

There are also even harder joke versions of this hack called "SM74EEEE", "SM74EEEEEE", though they are not made by Lugmillord and only move objects around without changing any level model.

In January 2021, MarioCrash released a crossover of SM74 and SM74EE, called Super Mario 74: Ten Years After, which introduces new themes for the levels, as well as new missions. It was made as a celebration of SM74's 10th anniversary in 2021.


Mario has been sleeping for "an eternity", up until the game's beginning. He thinks he hasn't beaten Bowser all that long ago, but when he talks to the Toad in front of him at the start of the game, he reveals that Mario has been dreaming of saving Peach from Bowser by doing easy adventures, but now he has to face the real world, which is anything but nice. Princess Peach was kidnapped by Bowser years ago, and he used her magic powers to destroy the world, which resulted in an adventure that is anything but easy. There are now many more lava pits, lava falls, bottomless pits, and other hazards. Mario must now save Princess Peach and defeat Bowser by facing the truly challenging levels that await in this game.

Third Overworld Castle Interior 2 50+ Both stars are from Toads. One is behind the temple, and one is in a spike on top of the entrance to this section (which requires the Wing Cap).
Breezing Beach Snowman's Land 7 There are 112 coins in this level.
Dried-Out Dead Desert Wet-Dry World There are 106 coins in this level.
Cliff of Pain Tall, Tall Mountain There are 108 coins in this level, but one is believed to be impossible because it is behind a wall.

All 14 are located after the last warp pipe, because you lose all your coin data when you go from Bowser's Quicksand Pit to Ztar Zanctuary, or vice versa. This level technically has only 4 stars, as two of them are located in the sections of the course that had to be moved to Bowser's Quicksand Pit.
Castle Grounds 0 80+ Yoshi is mentioned by one of the signs, but does not appear in this game. The pipe leading to this level can be found in Acid Peaks. Do NOT enter this place before getting 150 Stars, as you'll be stuck; the only way to escape is by losing all your lives and returning to the title screen.
Triarc-Bridge The Secret Aquarium 7 150 Enter the Castle Grounds with 150 stars, and the grille above the old cannon will disappear, allowing you to access the level.
