The Lake Kingdom is a region featured in Super Mario Odyssey, and can either be the fourth or the fifth location visited, depending on if the player selects to go here or to the Wooded Kingdom after leaving the Sand Kingdom. It is the greater location of Lake Lamode, a large lake area with an underwater plaza area. This kingdom is renowned for its fashion designers and clothes, including the prized Lochlady Dress. When Mario first visits here, the Broodals can be found at the Water Plaza in the process of stealing the Lochlady Dress. Mario encounters the Broodals at the Water Plaza Terrace, where he must defeat Rango, which will reward the player with a Multi Moon. Collecting the Multi Moon restores the Water Plaza to its former glory, allowing access to more Power Moons. Once Mario collects enough Power Moons, he can access the next kingdom - either the Wooded Kingdom (if the player has not yet visited it) or the Cloud Kingdom (if both the Wooded and Lake Kingdoms have been visited).

Based on its architectural structure and the several islands located here, this kingdom seems to based on Greece. However, the name "Lake Lamode" comes from the French phrase à la mode, meaning "in fashion" or "stylish". The name of the Lochladies and the presence of Dorrie (a reference to the Loch Ness Monster) make a connection to Scotland.

The Lake Kingdom is located northeast of the Sand Kingdom, north of the Wooded Kingdom, and northwest of the Cloud Kingdom.

Brochure details[edit]

Light plays through the surface of the lake.

The Domed Water Plaza[edit]

Lake Lamode, the land of fashion. The underwater Water Plaza is protected by a glass dome, but don't worry, there's air inside to breathe.

When you look up at the lake from within the plaza, you can see Dorrie swimming amid the stunning scenery.

Beautiful in a different way than the lake.

Window Shopping[edit]

Considered the most luxurious garment this kingdom has to offer, the Lochlady Dress is displayed in the show window of the Water Plaza. Of all the garments created by the Lochladies, only the very best and most beautiful is selected for this great honor. It's a national treasure!

It's said that wearing this dress brings eternal happiness, so naturally every bride yearns for it. Sadly, this lovely, one-of-a-kind item is not for sale.

You just want to yank it, don't you?

Zippers of Mystery[edit]

Fitting of a kingdom famous for its fashion, you can find zipper art all over the place here. Zippers can be securely fastened as well as opened and closed freely, so perhaps they have a deeper meaning...

That said, this particular zipper is more than decoration. It actually works, so stop by and give it a try.

Fresh or salt water, Dorries swim anywhere.

Dorrie the Aquatic Buddy[edit]

This gentle creature spends its days swimming gracefully in Lake Lamode. If you're confident in your abilities, swimming alongside it might make for some wonderful memories.

Although able to live in any aquatic environment, some have heard Dorrie complain that the lake is too small. Keep an eye out for Dorrie-themed souvenirs, which tourists just love!

There's even a deep end.

Soaked in History[edit]

Once a spot for designers to relax and even dye cloth, this soaking pool has a rich history. Since most activity centers around the lake town, this is now a well-known fishing hole.

The Lovely Lochladies[edit]

Lochladies are exceedingly flexible, but they also possess a deep strength. Many have become accomplished designers, and this balance may be their secret.

Enemies[edit]

Power Moons[edit]

Main article: List of Lake Kingdom Power Moons

There are a total of 42 Power Moons in the Lake Kingdom. During the player's first visit to this kingdom, they can collect 26 Power Moons, including one from the kingdom's Hint Art. The player can also collect a Power Moon if they travel to this kingdom using a painting found in a future kingdom (either the Snow, Seaside or Metro Kingdom). After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 6 more Power Moons become available to collect. The Moon Rock will also be available to destroy, causing 9 additional Power Moons to be accessible.

In order to progress to the next kingdom, the player must collect at least 8 Power Moons.
