What Is Scuffle Island?

A Melee Battle Arena

Scuffle Island

Scuffle island is a melee brawl gauntlet mini-game that rewards you coins. You'll face off against 7 consecutive Paper Mache enemies in a real-time action battle. This challenge can be repeated multiple times!

1If your HP drops, you lose and have to restart from the beginning
2No Mushrooms allowed
3You get recovery hearts after each boss
4You can bow out any time between battles

Scuffle Island Location



First Time Reward- Trophy
- 31,600 Coins total
Second Time (And On)- 11,160 Coins total

Note that the second time (and on) you do this event, you will only get 1/10th of the coins. The exception to this is the final (7th) battle, which gives you 10,000 coins (1/2). This means that if you can't make it to the 7th battle, it's not worth farming this.

How Efficient Is It?

Approx. Time Needed10-11 minutes

You should be able to complete one round of this island in 10 minutes, if you are fast and know what you're doing. This means you could ostensibly be getting 1,000 coins a minute from this method.
