Forest of Illusion
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The Forest of Illusion is the fifth world in Super Mario World. It is the eastern portion of Dinosaur Land and is part of the same landmass as Cookie Mountain, which is the northeastern part of the map. The forest contains one fortress, one Ghost House, one Star Road, the Blue Switch Palace, and many secret paths.
This world is unique in that beating the regular exits will only take the player in a circle, hence its name. To find the way out of the forest, the player needs to find the secret exit in one level. Forest Secret Area, #5 Roy's Castle, and Forest Fortress are the only levels without multiple exits. When any level is beaten, in addition to a path appearing, trees will disappear.
Levels that are marked with an asterisk (*) feature a secret exit.
Appearances in other media
The Forest of Illusion, renamed the Enchanted Forest, is featured in the episode "Ghosts 'R' Us" from the Super Mario World animated series, where it is the main setting and the greater location of Wizenheimer's haunted house.
Similar forested areas are also seen in the episodes "King Scoopa Koopa", "The Yoshi Shuffle", and "Mama Luigi", appearing closer to Forest of Illusion's in-game appearance. The distinctive trees with faces also often appear in the background in several episodes. Here, they more closely resemble coconut trees, and their faces lack cheeks. In "Party Line", one of the trees is used to send the caterpillars into space.
