Excluding the infinite amount of moons you can buy in the postgame, how many power moons are there to find?

8

Let's get more specific. There are far more moons available in many levels since there are multi-moons (counts as 3 power moons). Also most kingdoms have Crazy Cap stores so you can potentially get many more in that world. Here's a more detailed breakdown:

  • Mushroom Kingdom + Crazy Cap Store

    836         559         22x3=66     255         +880
    

That brings it down to a grand total of 836 listed moons, and counting multi-moons, 880 power moons found in the world. Then if you want to get the max of 999, you'll need to buy at least 119 additional moons from Crazy Cap Stores.

According to the Prima Guide:

  • Cap Kingdom: 31 moons
  • Cascade Kingdom: 40
  • Sand Kingdom: 89
  • Lake Kingdom: 42
  • Wooded Kingdom: 76
  • Cloud Kingdom: 9
  • Lost Kingdom: 35
  • Metro Kingdom: 81
  • Snow Kingdom: 55
  • Seaside Kingdom: 71
  • Luncheon Kingdom: 68
  • Ruined Kingdom: 10
  • Bowser's Kingdom: 62
  • Moon Kingdom: 38
  • Mushroom Kingdom: 43 (becomes 104 for achievements)
  • Dark Side: 24
  • Darker Side: 1

The above adds up to 836.

NB: Multi-moons count as a single moon in these numbers, because it is based on the row in the map's list, which marks multi-moons as a single row with a "3" beside it.

    This site says 836. They also state that after considering the ones in shops, it's over 900. Are you sure? – Timmy Jim Oct 30 '17 at 11:37

    Do these numbers count the multi-moons as 1 or 3 moons? – Question Marks Oct 30 '17 at 15:50
  • 1
    @QuestionMarks I believe they would be one, because it's counting by number from the list viewable from the map and the list shows multi moons as one row with a "3" beside it – Margaret Oct 30 '17 at 19:10

    @QuestionMarks: The number on the right of the list in general is how many moons a given item produced (if more than 1). Multi-moons will list a 3. But eventually when you're able to buy the moons, it will be counted in the corresponding shop's list. – Jeff Mercado Oct 30 '17 at 20:30

    Isn’t there one for the darker side? – Stevoisiak Nov 6 '17 at 22:42
