Bowser's Villa 8-1 is the first level of Bowser's Villa in Super Princess Peach. It features a large amount of doors, with some warping the player back to a previous section.


The level starts off with two M. Red P-Goombas and a swinging Ball 'N' Chain. After dodging a Fire Bar, the player will have to climb up a ladder, before progressing down whilst avoiding Sad Dry Bones. After this is one more Fire Bar and a purple Warp Pipe.

The next room has three doors, although one is blocked off. The door on the left leads to an optional area filled with Thwomps, with a Toad (in post-game, Puzzle G Piece 12 is found) as a reward and a door that leads back to the main path. The door on the right leads to the next room.

This room contains several more doors. If the player goes in the door that is on their immediate left, they will go to an optional autoscrolling room. They will need to avoid maces, Dry Bones and a Fire Bar. Like earlier, at the end of the room is a Toad (in post-game, Puzzle H Piece 12 is found) and a door that will take them back to the previous room. If the player goes through the other door on the left, up the ramp, they will find another door-filled room.

If they go into the door on the far left, they will go through a series of rooms with various statues of Princess Peach; the player will need to copy the position of the statues to avoid getting sucked in by the large Security Thwomp in the background. In the first, the player has to stay still, in the second they have to crouch, and in the third they have to be airborne. After this is a room with a Fire Bar, another Toad (in post-game, Bowser's Villa M is found), and a way back to the previous room. The second door from the right will take the player to the beginning of the section, right where the Warp Pipe led. The door on the far right is the correct path forward.

The next two rooms all have two doors; one is fake and leads to the Warp Pipe, the other leads to the next room. In the first one, the upper door is the correct one, while in the second one, it is the lower door. Said door leads to a room with a lone Hammer Bro and no apparent way forward; the player must use the Joy vibe to float up and find the door. After climbing a ladder and going through one more door, they will reach the final room in the section. The way forward is the Warp Pipe to the left; the nearby door will lead back to the start.

The next room has switches that rotates the room 90 degrees every time they are hit, as well as a Mad Boo. At the end of the room is a Warp Pipe, which leads to the final room, containing a two Hammer Bros., the music for Giddy Sky 2, and the goal gate.
