The Front Door on the left and the Back Door on the right

The Back Door is a level in the Valley of Bowser in Super Mario World. It is similar to the Front Door of Bowser's Castle but skips over the majority of the level, starting at the "dark" room. The eight doors are skipped entirely, making Bowser's Castle much easier. The only difference in the "dark room" from the Front Door path is a Midway Gate just before the fight to Bowser. The battle with Bowser is unchanged, as is the credits and ending scenes. This level and the Front Door are both counted as the same exit, and as such, the player is only required to complete one of them to achieve 100% completion.

It can be accessed through a secret path in the Valley of Bowser, specifically after the completion of the level Valley Fortress.
