A Downhill Battle is the first course in the Story Mode of Super Mario Maker 2. It is set in the ground theme for the main area and the underground theme for the sub-area, and it is also set in the New Super Mario Bros. U game style. It is posted by Goomba Lover, and has a difficulty rating of 1/4 stars. Completing this course in Story Mode awards Mario with 100 Coins and the choice to begin work on the foundation of Peach's Castle.


The level begins with a Bill Blaster blasting out Super Mushrooms, along with a gentle slope with eight Goombas climbing up it. Right afterwards, Mario will come across a set of three ? Blocks, including one that is invisible. By jumping while on the top of them, he will be able to reveal another invisible block that contains a Beanstalk which will lead him upwards to his first 10-Coin. After passing a Big Goomba, Mario will reach some Warp Pipes and a Goomba Tower. If Mario enters the Warp Pipe with a Piranha Plant inside of it, he will enter a small underground area with a few coins; otherwise, Mario will pass a Goombrat and enter a section with Note Blocks. Both paths lead to the Checkpoint Flag, which, when touched, awards Mario with a Super Star. After traversing a few slopes, Mario has the option of either sliding down a slope full of Goombrat Towers or jumping across multiple Spike Traps if his Super Star is still active to reach a 10-Coin. Either path leads to another group of Note Blocks, where Mario can go down a yellow Warp Pipe that leads to another 10-Coin. After passing another Piranha Plant, Mario must cross another slope to get to the Goal Pole.


"I made a course full of Goombas! First one to the goal pole gets PAID. Here's a tip: tilt Left Stick↓ on the downward slopes to wipe out the Goombas."
