This article is about the end point of a level. For information about the minigame in Mario Party 4, see GOOOOOOOAL!!

Goals are the end target of a level in the Super Mario franchise and associated series. The first and most common example was the Goal Pole, a flagpole seen first in Super Mario Bros., but many other varieties exist in later games, including the Power Stars in Super Mario 64 and the Super Mario Galaxy games.

  • Goal door: A door seen at the end of most Wario Land levels. Passing through them will complete the level and bring the player back to the world map.
  • Elevator: In Virtual Boy Wario Land, an Elevator is seen at the end of all non-boss stages. A key must first be obtained somewhere in the stage, in order to unlock the Elevator door. Upon ascending within the Elevator, the game will save. The player will be brought to a screen where Wario's points and any treasure collected from the stage are counted and added towards a grand total. After viewing this screen, the player can keep ascending and enter the next stage of the game.
  • Jump Transporter: In Virtual Boy Wario Land, a defeated Boss Guard will transform into a Jump Transporter, allowing Wario to enter the boss stage.
  • Treasure chest: In Wario Land 3, four chests are in each level, colored gray, red, blue, and green. To open them and clear the stage, Wario must find the corresponding key first. They are replaced by goal doors afterward.
  • Vortex: In Wario Land 4, the vortex will allow Wario to exit the current level, provided that the Switch has been pressed first. However, Wario will not be able to progress to the next level unless he has found the Keyzer prior to exiting.
  • Legendary treasure: In Wario Land 4, each of the four main bosses of the game guard wears one of four pieces of legendary treasure. After Wario defeats each of these bosses, the respective treasure it wears will be collected and stored within the Golden Pyramid on the main map, clearing that passage. The legendary treasure is later seen in the final boss battle, where it is worn by the Golden Diva.
  • Treasure chest: In Wario Land 4, four treasure chests are seen in the background of each boss battle, and will disappear when the time runs low. All remaining chests after each of the four boss battles will be again found in the final battle against the Golden Diva. The treasure chests which remain after this battle will be collected by Wario, and the number of chests out of a total of twelve will determine how beautiful Princess Shokora appears in the game's closing cutscene.
  • Stone Doohickey: In Wario World, Wario will need to collect a certain amount of red diamonds throughout the level in order to remove the Stone Doohickey that blocks the entrance to the boss. Red Diamonds can be found in the different level's trapdoors.
  • Wishstone Shards: Pieces of the greater Wishstone that serve as the way to complete the worlds in Wario: Master of Disguise.
  • Merfle: Bird-like creatures that are trapped in cages in Wario Land: Shake It!. Rescuing the one at the end of the level and then rushing back to the start of the level in the time allotted will result in the level being completed.
