Kitchen Island[1] is the setting for Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. It is a skull shaped island that is the home base for Captain Syrup and the Brown Sugar Pirates. There are seven areas to the game, each one containing hidden treasure and one boss character at the end of each area. The common theme of all of the island's areas is that each one is related to food or something in the kitchen, in name and sometimes in appearance. Kitchen Island is located in the Capri Sea.[1]

Rice Beach[edit]

Rice Beach is a basic starting world, with several beach-themed courses. The final two courses take place in the caverns at the back of the beach. The boss of the area is the Spiked Koopa. After it is beaten, the tide comes in and Course No.01 and Course No.03 become flooded with water, helping the player to reach various secrets. A secret exit can be found in Course No.03.

Mt. Teapot[edit]

Mt. Teapot is a giant mountain shaped like a teakettle, filled with hot springs and some lava areas. Asparagus Lake sits at the base of the mountain. This is the largest world of the game, amounting to seven courses (the fourth course is initially Course No.10, becoming Course No.13 once Wario activates a special trigger at the end of Course No.12). The boss of the mountain is a muscular Minotaur. A secret exit in Course No.08 leads to Sherbet Land.

Sherbet Land[edit]

Sherbet Land is an optional area, accessed by finding the secret exit in Mt. Teapot's Course No.08. As its name implies, Sherbet Land is a massive iceberg, with typically ice-themed courses found within. Contributing to the "optional" theme of the area, the Penguin boss in Course No.19 can be bypassed entirely by leaving through the door in the boss room. Further, he is the only boss in the game (aside from Captain Syrup and the Genie) that can be fought multiple times. Secret exits can be found in Course No.15 and Course No.16.

Stove Canyon[edit]

A deep canyon near the center of the island, filled with lava. The courses within are filled with fire-based hazards. A secret exit can be found in Course No.23. The boss of the canyon is the giant, floating Devil's Head.

SS Tea Cup[edit]

The courses in this area consist not only of the pirate ship itself, but the caverns, beaches, oceans, and jungles surrounding it. The boss of the pirate ship is a massive bird named Bobo.

Parsley Woods[edit]

This is a large forest area, with two courses that take place on moving shipment trains and two other courses that involve climbing fork-shaped trees in addition to other forest-themed courses. Fork Tree stands prominently in the middle of the forest. Initially, Wario is trapped here until beating Course No.32, which drains the lake (as well as all of the water in Course No.31) in the area and opens up an exit to the rest of Kitchen Island. The boss of this area is a large ghost.

Syrup Castle[edit]

A large, imposing tower at the corner of the island, a stone fortress with a skull-shaped castle at the top. As Wario fights his way up the tower, he destroys it bit-by-bit, revealing that its foundation is actually the giant golden Princess Toadstool statue. The final battle is against Captain Syrup. She summons the Genie to fight Wario, and upon her defeat, tries to take Wario out by dropping a huge bomb that destroys the last of her castle. Revealing that the statue was in the castle, Wario tries to take it but Mario arrives and claims the statue.
