The Luncheon Kingdom is the eleventh kingdom visited in Super Mario Odyssey. This location, inspired by Italy (or more specifically by Mount Vesuvius), is a combination of lava/volcano and food themes. It is the greater location of Mount Volbono, the volcano, and is inhabited by Volbonans. It is visited after both the Snow and Seaside Kingdoms have been visited. When Mario and Cappy first visit this kingdom, Bowser and the Broodals have stolen the Stupendous Stew as food for the wedding reception, and Spewart must be fought; after his defeat, Mario and Cappy must make their way to the remaining Stupendous Stew atop the volcano to pursue Cookatiel. However, they are blown off after the volcano erupts. Therefore, they must reach the pot a different way. After defeating Cookatiel, Mario and Cappy attempt to visit Bowser's Kingdom, but their journey is interrupted by Bowser and the Ruined Dragon, sending them crash-landing into the Ruined Kingdom.

Brochure details[edit]

A pot cooking on a volcano? Only here.

Cooking with a Volcano[edit]

Surrounded by strange pink lava, Mount Volbono is colorful and vibrant, a vision straight from a picture book. It is famous for its cuisine, with dishes simmered over the volcano, and chock-full of the local produce that grows to enormous size thanks to the volcanic climate.

The Gates of a Gourmet Paradise

The Historic "Old Town"[edit]

On your way to Mount Volbono, you'll pass through the Old Town, ringed by the ruined wall that once enclosed the town. These sturdy, cut-stone walls even now suggest the prosperity of those times. Atop the walls are little mounds of salt, carried by the wind and piled up naturally. Visitors can walk along the tops of the walls—do so if you get a chance. The sights here are very different from the colorful scenery of Peronza Plaza, but equally breathtaking.

Locals hard at work preparing for the event.

Cooking Carnival[edit]

The highlight of Mount Volbono's year is the Cooking Carnival, where visitors from all over the world come to sample the famous Stupendous Stew. While cooking on a volcano is of course a grand spectacle, the dish itself has a surprisingly delicate flavor, described most frequently in reviews as a "melty deliciousity."

A giant slab of meat surveys its domain.

A Resting Place for Meat[edit]

The giant slab of meat used in the Stupendous Stew is crusted generously in salt and left to rest on a high perch near the volcano. Aging the meat high above the lava, cooled by the wind, is essential to creating the core flavor. If you arrived before the Cooking Carnival, be sure to take the opportunity to visit the platform and see the meat resting soundly before its long journey.

All of the ingredients here are gigantic.

Peronza Plaza[edit]

Be sure to visit the centrally located Peronza Plaza for a friendly welcome. Once among the colorful heaps of giant ingredients and succulent smells, you may find it hard to leave.

Cheese as Hard as Rock[edit]

The cheese in Mount Volbono is quite hard, likely because it is left near the lava and dries out completely. The locals chisel it with hammers—you're welcome to join!

Three Keys to the Kingdom[edit]

  1. Sample the famous dish Stupendous Stew. It's what the locals eat.
  2. Gape at exotic ingredients like gigantic vegetables and rock-hard cheeses.

The painting that leads to the Mushroom Kingdom

There are two paintings in this kingdom. One is located at the back of the Remote Island in the Lava. It takes the player to Yoshi's House at the Mushroom Kingdom, and it can be accessed after collecting the "Under the Cheese Rocks" Power Moon.

The other painting is located at the Floating Sky Island and can only be accessed from a painting at the Wooded Kingdom or the Lake Kingdom, depending on which kingdom the player first visited later.

Power Moons[edit]

The Luncheon Kingdom has cyan Power Moons.
Main article: List of Power Moons in the Luncheon Kingdom

There are a total of 72 Power Moons (66 regular Power Moons and 2 Multi Moons) in this Kingdom. During the player's first visit to this kingdom, they can collect 45 Power Moons and the 2 Multi 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 previous kingdom (either the Lake Kingdom or Wooded Kingdom). One additional Power Moon can also be found when the player encounters the Tostarenan tourist in the kingdom (after he has visited all other locations). After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 7 more Power Moons become available to collect. The Moon Rock will also be available to destroy, causing 12 additional Power Moons to be accessible.

In order to progress to the next kingdom, the player must collect at least 18 Power Moons.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker[edit]

Main article: Cookatiel's Sizzling Sprint

A new level inspired by the Luncheon Kingdom appears in the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch versions of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Cookatiel appears an enemy in the level, spitting durians at the player. Double Cherries also appear in the level.



  • The player could have used precision platforming from the Floating Sky Island to reach the Luncheon Kingdom early on in the game. This was eventually fixed, and Mario is now brought back up to the island in a bubble if this is attempted.
