Level 4-3 is the third course of Crumbling Cavern in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars. It is the first level to contain Fire Piranha Plants, which continuously spit and catch a fireball that rebounds off an opposing wall.

The level features two Mini Marios.


Level map

The course has an erratic pattern, consisting of several gaps and pathways with Movable Pipes. The two Minis start in relatively far positions. While avoiding fireballs thrown by Fire Piranha Plants, the Minis have to be transported using pipes to the Goal Door at the top left corner. There is a gap before the door, bridged by a Movable Pipe overseen by several Fire Piranha Plants on the ceiling.

If a pipe is placed between a Fire Piranha Plant and a fireball, it will perpetually bound between the pipe and another surface, remaining stuck for as long as the pipe is solid.

M Coin[edit]

The M Coin is beside the Movable Pipe near the top right corner of the course. Said pipe should lead the Minis to the coin, provided they previously entered the pipe on the bottom right, whose direction orients the Minis to move towards the coin.
