<< List of worlds >>

Lava Dome is the fifth floor in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. Volcanoes and a smoke-filled night sky can be seen in the background. The music tracks played on this floor are arrangements of the Bowser's Castle theme from Super Mario Bros.; additionally, this floor bears a significant resemblance to worlds concerning Bowser found in various other Mario games.

This floor features fire-based obstacles such as lava, Lava Fountains, Podoboos, and Fire Bars. Spy Guys are introduced on this floor, while Circus Kongs, Crash Kongs, and Cool Kongs return from previous floors. This floor also introduces Wall Jump Bars, Fire Blocks, and logs, which can be burned to access new areas.

Upon completing Boss Game 5, the Lava Dome construction kit is unlocked for the Construction Zone. After being defeated in Boss Game 5, Donkey Kong flees to Toadstool Castle.
