A Baddie Box

This level starts in an underground area inhabited by some Bob-ombs and Piranha Plants. After passing a Fire Piranha Plant and some moving platforms, the player reaches the Checkpoint Flag which is followed by some more enemies and moving platforms, with a Cloud Cannon nearby. After navigating past some more enemies and a Dash Panel, the player reaches a pipe which leads them to a platform with a Bob-omb and the Goal Pole.

Green Stars[edit]

  • Green Star 1: Before the first clear pipe, players must use a Bob-omb or Tanooki Mario to destroy a purple Brick Block wall. Alternatively, the touch screen can activate the POW Block.
  • Green Star 2: After the checkpoint, players must catch a rabbit.
  • Green Star 3: Players must use the cloud cannon to access an area where all the Color Panels need to be activated to reveal an 8-bit image of Mario.


Wii U version
Switch version

After the second Green Star, the player must destroy the cracked wall to reveal a hidden passage to the stamp. The stamp is a Bob-omb.
