This strat requires some farming. It assumes starting with 15 supers for one session of farming. A safe farming method is to face left while standing in the safe spot. Then fire straight up to shoot the orbs as they appear. Jump up while GT's beak is not open to collect the drops. Plasma allows all of the orbs to be broken at once. Grapple allows for more drops to be collected by shooting diagonally, and collecting the items using Grapple. Keep the number of current Missiles below 31 so that GT will be guaranteed to use the attack which creates drops. Firing Supers requires a very steady fire rate so that for every Super Missile caught by GT, the next 4 Supers do damage.
