Leaping Smackerel is a level in Petal Isles in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. It is unlocked after clearing Angler Poplin's House, and houses two Wonder Seeds.


The level starts with a short beach area with a Smackerel occasionally rising up to break Hard Blocks. After taking the pipe, the player will enter an underwater area with several more pipes, and a few Sluglugs and some more Smackerels. After a structure of Brick Blocks, the player approaches the Checkpoint Flag. A few currents follow, which lead to an area with ten Sluglugs and another Smackerel leading to another Checkpoint Flag. After two more Smackerels, the player will be led via pipe to another beach area with the Goal Pole.

Wonder Flower[edit]

The Wonder Flower can also be found in a ? Block just above the second Checkpoint Flag; when collected, it causes a giant Smackerel to travel downwards and eat up the nearby ground, then switch directions and move forward, after which the player must tempt it into breaking the higher ground in the area in order to collect all of the Wonder Tokens, after which they will obtain the Wonder Seed. The pipe leading out of the area will take the player directly to the exit pipe.

10-flower coins[edit]

  • 10-flower coin 1: Below a row of Hard Blocks after the first Sluglug. The player must wait for a Smackerel to destroy some of the Hard Blocks in order to reach it.
  • 10-flower coin 2: When reaching the area with two Sluglugs above, the player must tempt the Smackerel into taking them both out to gain access to the nearby pipe. The 10-flower coin is on the other side, atop the higher palm tree.
  • 10-flower coin 3: Just after the first Checkpoint Flag, the player must hit a Hidden Block to cause a vine to grow downwards, which they must climb down. The 10-flower coin is in the hidden area below, above the top current in the area.
