An Uncharted Area: Wubba Ruins, also known as Wubba Ruins,[1] is a course in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. It is found in the Fungi Mines and is unlocked after clearing Loyal Poplin's House. A Wonder Packun prevents access to this course however, and can only be rid of if the players have at least six Fungi Mines Wonder Seeds. This course features lots of Wubbas and slime the players can stand on and swim in. Completion of this course unlocks Badge Challenge Grappling Vine I and Another Uncharted Area: Swaying Ruins. The difficulty of this course is two stars, and it houses two Wonder Seeds.


The players start outside the ruins, where two area of slime are, as well as a Wubba. The players must get through the slime to enter the ruins. Once inside, the players will have to traverse past lots of slime and Wubbas to make progress. Some of these slimy areas are above the ground and close to the ceiling. After climbing up three stair-like platforms, there will then be yellow Konks that attack from above and can smash through the slime, causing it to disappear temporarily and then reappear. The slime will then lead upwards, where there are more yellow Konks and Wubbas. There is then solid ground where the Checkpoint Flag is.

Beyond the Checkpoint Flag, the path descends, and there are cyan Konks that attack from below. Above the second cyan Konk is a ? Block that releases the Wonder Flower when struck. Upon obtaining the Wonder Flower, the players transform into Wubbas and can freely climb up walls and ceilings, as well as swim quickly through slime. The path ahead has more Konks of both colors, as well as more Wubbas and slime. At the end of the path lies the Wonder Seed, which will revert the players back to normal after collecting it. A nearby pipe will take the players to the Goal Pole, where slime can be used to reach the top of it.

If the player manages not to grab the Wonder Flower, they have to use a pipe found earlier in the level that will take the player to the fake Goal Pole.

Hidden Character Blocks[edit]

10-flower coins[edit]

  • 10-flower coin 1: Found below Brick Blocks under the third Konk of the course. The players must use the Konk to break the blocks and allow them to collect the coin.
  • 10-flower coin 2: Found in a secret area that can only be reached to by a red pipe in the slime before the Checkpoint Flag. In this secret area, the players must defeat all five Wubbas for the coin to appear.
  • 10-flower coin 3: Found past the first Checkpoint Flag, where there are two cyan Konks attacking from below. If the players are in Wubba form, they can easily move across the ceiling and be able to reach to the coin.

Enemies and obstacles[edit]
