I finished the main story of Super Mario 3D Land, and am working on the Special world levels now.

I die a lot (the levels are harder!), but I never seem to die enough in a level to have the White Tanooki Leaf appear so I can use the White Tanooki Suit.

Do I need to die more times in the Special Levels? Or does it not appear there? Or am I just not counting how many times I die properly?

You have to die 5 times to get the tanooki leaf. Have you died 5 times in one of these special levels? –  agent86 Jan 15 '12 at 1:15
@agent86 By my count? Yeah. –  Ashley Nunn Jan 15 '12 at 1:24

Neither of the Assist Blocks appear in the Special Worlds.

Oh, lovely :( That means the Special Worlds are going to take me approximately forever. :( –  Ashley Nunn Jan 15 '12 at 1:35
