Ant Trooper Hill, otherwise known as World 4-1, is the first course of World 4 in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. It is unlocked via completion of A Banquet with Hisstocrat, and its own completion unlocks Piranha Creeper Creek.


The level starts on a desert-like platform with some Ant Troopers nearby. Some nearby platforms can be used to enter a cave infested with Ant Troopers. When the player exits the cave, several rows of Horned Ant Troopers appear. A Super Star can be found on a nearby platform. After the row of Horned Ant Troopers, the Checkpoint Flag is reached. An area with spikes on the ground follows, which must be traversed via the Big Ant Troopers spawning from the nearby cave. A nearby pipe leads to an area with some Ant Troopers and the Goal Pole.

Green Stars[edit]

  • Green Star 1: Immediately after the cave, the player must use the cat form to climb a wall in order to obtain the first Green Star.
  • Green Star 2: After the checkpoint, there is a Warp Pipe nearby the spiked grounds that leads to a room with Ant Troopers and the Green Star.
  • Green Star 3: Near the end, the third Green Star is in plain sight in the spiked area.
