New Donker, Super Mario Odyssey

The Metro Kingdom is the eighth kingdom visited in Super Mario Odyssey. It is the greater location of New Donk City, a large city filled with skyscrapers and buildings. This kingdom's main landmark is the New Donk City Hall, the tallest skyscraper located at the northern end of the kingdom.

The Metro Kingdom is largely based off the real world location of New York City, hence the name of the city located within it. The New Donk City Hall is based on the Empire State Building, while a pair of triangular-shaped buildings outside of it appear to be inspired by the Flatiron Building, and visible in the skyline are a building and bridge resembling the Chrysler Building and Brooklyn Bridge, respectively. The way Crazy Cap has a flagship store in New Donk City is very similar to how Nintendo's flagship store is in New York City. Some street signs in New Donk City feature cycling wrong way signs that look exactly like the signs used in New York City, and traffic lights have guy-wire masts, consistant with their design in New York. This kingdom is notable for having humans as the main inhabitants - called "New Donkers" (the equivalent of "New Yorkers") - as well as Pauline as its mayor (notwithstanding). New Donk City has a 1930s-1940s aesthetic as its residents are uniformly dressed in pinstripe suits and fedoras with jazz music prominent. New Donk City's nickname is "The city that never leaps", a play on New York City's nickname - "The city that never sleeps". New Donk City is also referred to as "The Big Banana" by a New Donker, which is a play on New York City being referred to as "The Big Apple". The Metro Kingdom is also the founding location of the Crazy Cap Shop chain. New Donk City features copious references to the arcade game Donkey Kong, and it is implied the events of that game, where Mario had to save Pauline from Donkey Kong, are a part of the city's beginnings.[1][2][3] New York City was stated to be the setting of the original Donkey Kong arcade game,[4] while Big-City, a location in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy, and Big Ape City, a location in Donkey Kong Land, are also implied to be the setting.[5] It is unknown if any of these are intended to be the same city.

When Mario first visits here, Bowser's airship can be seen flying over the top of the New Donk City Hall. Mario's first objective is to stop Bowser by heading to the New Donk City Hall Rooftop. Once the player climbs up to here, they will find Mechawiggler - a large robotic Wiggler taking all the city's power. Mario must then fight the Mechawiggler and defeat it, which will reward the player with a Multi Moon. Collecting it will take Mario back to the Odyssey, and the kingdom reverts to daytime. The player's next objective is to talk to Mayor Pauline at the New Donk City Hall Plaza. She tells Mario that she needs four musicians to perform in her big festival. Mario finds the four musicians (a drummer, a guitarist, a bassist, and a trumpeter) and takes them all back to Pauline. Once he has done this, the mayor will then tell Mario of a new problem - the Underground Power Plant is not working. Mario must then travel to the Power Plant and restore it in order to generate enough power to hold the festival. Mayor Pauline is impressed by Mario's efforts, and she asks if Mario would like to participate in the festival. He accepts the offer, and the New Donk City Festival begins. If the player can successfully traverse through the festival of the city and reach Pauline at the end, she will give Mario another Multi Moon. Collecting it restores the kingdom to its former glory (although nothing changes between Mechawiggler and the festival), allowing access to more Power Moons. Once Mario has collected enough Power Moons, he can head off to the next kingdom - either the Snow Kingdom or the Seaside Kingdom.


The city's design is largely inspired by real world big cities, most notably New York City. It features many typical things found in cities, such as fire hydrants, street lamps and stoplights (the latter of which Mario is able to grab onto and swing on to jump forward, and their pedestrian crossing lights can be hit like ? Blocks). There are taxis driving throughout the city, which Mario is able to bounce off of the front hoods of in order to gain extra jump height. There are also many billboards, some of which advertise about other kingdoms in the game. Many of the streets and some of the billboards and advertisements in the city are named after characters from the Donkey Kong franchise, such as "Diddy's Mart", "Dixie Street", "Tiny's Piroshkis" and "Cranky Avenue", not to mention the city itself; additionally, there are some red girders that appear in New Donk City as a reference to the original Donkey Kong arcade game. The city is located on an elevated platform above the rest of the kingdom, surrounded by a large bay. Each side of said bay is surrounded by further unexplorable city.

Brochure details[edit]

Scraping the Sky[edit]

The skyscrapers of New Donk City are most people's first association with the city. But even among those, New Donk City Hall stands out as the very symbol of this great city, so don't miss it. Who knows, you might even run into world-renowned Mayor Pauline!

The nighttime skyline shines from any angle.

A Million-Coin View[edit]

If you've come to New Donk City, you owe it to yourself to see it at night. The best viewing spot is the landmark New Donk City Hall, but sadly the interior is closed for construction, so you'll have to aim for one of the neighboring buildings.

If it's festival season, you'll have a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but the timing is a bit irregular, so be sure to check the schedule beforehand.

The world's most trusted brand in headwear.

Crazy Cap Flagship Store[edit]

There's probably only one brand that the entire world knows, and that's Crazy Cap. Their original flagship store is right here in New Donk City.

The unique storefront is converted from an old theater. Theater space is no longer much in demand, with so many street performers in the city.

These aren't even safety rails.

Always Be Constructing[edit]

New Donkers are used to construction and new developments. There's always work being done below ground, on rooftops, and inside buildings, so power lines never get taken down—they run throughout town.

Unaccustomed travelers should watch out for the cranes, girders, and manholes scattered everywhere.

Tougher than it looks.

Scooting Across Town[edit]

These motor scooters may look old-fashioned, but they pack a punch and are perfect for tooling around the city. Be sure to try one out!

More New Donkers are getting into the noble sport of RC Car racing. Find a local enthusiast, and you'll open up a whole new world.

Three Keys to the Kingdom[edit]

  1. Appreciate the constant Power Moon-based progress and development.
  2. Visit those welcoming souls who just leave their doors wide open.
  3. Participate in the citywide festival if you can (schedule subject to change).

Checkpoint Flag locations[edit]


Main article: Odyssey

The Odyssey lands in a secluded area south of the main part of the city. Nearby are some girders where Mario can find three regional coins. During Mechawiggler's attack on the city, there is a spark pylon on the blue tarp at the end of the girders which will take Mario to the city streets. After defeating Mechawiggler, Hint Toad and Uncle amiibo appear here, the spark pylon is moved closer to the Odyssey, and a Power Moon can be found inside the girders. Ground Pounding on the blue tarp where the spark pylon originally was makes coins pop out. Luigi also appears here after the main story's completion and hosts Balloon World.

City Outskirts/Main Street Entrance[edit]

The thirtieth Power Moon of the Metro Kingdom.

Depending on whether or not Mario has defeated Mechawiggler, there will be one of two Checkpoint Flags active near a small park (which is referred to as 'Squawks Park' on signs), both of which are reached via a spark pylon near the Odyssey's landing site. During Mechawiggler's attack, the Checkpoint Flag is southeast of the park and referred to as "City Outskirts". After Mechawiggler's defeat, the Checkpoint Flag is southwest of the park and referred to as "Main Street Entrance". At the Main Street Entrance, Mario can find a pair of Binoculars (through which the Sphynx can be seen after completion of the story) and a few New Donkers who welcome him to the city. Talkatoo and the Jump-Rope Challenge can be found at the park. Jammin' Toad, a Bonneter, and the Letters also appear at the park after the story is completed.

The music that regularly plays throughout the city plays as soon as Mario touches the ground here. As such, it is possible, at least briefly, to advance through the city without the music playing so long as Mario stays off the ground.

Rooftop Garden[edit]

The seventeenth Power Moon of the Metro Kingdom.

It is a small, flat garden atop one of the many buildings in this kingdom. Although most of the garden is found atop two connected buildings, a similar area close to these buildings also features a garden. While roaming the garden, Mario may find a Checkpoint Flag, a pole, and a rabbit he may catch for a Power Moon, though the rabbit often runs around the garden, hopping to the adjacent building. In the corner of the garden, two New Donkers sit on a bench in the shade of a tree. While exploring the garden, Mario may locate a set of four regional coins on the highest point as well as a football he may simply punt off the rooftop into the streets.

Main article: New Donk City Hall Plaza

Depending on whether or not Mario has defeated Mechawiggler, there will be one of two Checkpoint Flags active near New Donk City Hall. After Mechawiggler's defeat, the flag is directly in front of the entrance and referred to as "New Donk City Hall Plaza". Pauline can be found near the flag. During Mechawiggler's attack, the flag is called "Construction Access", and is on a small green mound a short distance to the east of its later location. Some stairs are nearby, which help Mario to reach the rooftop of a building, from where he may then access the Heliport.

This area is accessed by using a spark pylon east of New Donk City Hall Plaza. It is a small park with a few trees and benches. The guitarist needed to form the band is found here.

Power Moons[edit]

The Metro Kingdom has brown Power Moons.
Main article: List of Power Moons in the Metro Kingdom

There are a total of 85 Power Moons (79 regular Power Moons and 2 Multi Moons) in the Metro Kingdom. During the player's first visit to this kingdom, they can collect 49 of the 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 through a painting in the Sand Kingdom. One additional Power Moon can also be found when the player encounters the Tostarenan tourist in the kingdom. After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 13 more Power Moons become available to collect. The Moon Rock will also be available to destroy, causing 15 additional Power Moons to be accessible.

In order to progress to the next kingdom, the player must collect at least 20 Power Moons, the most Power Moons out of all the kingdoms needed to progress forward.

Unobtainable Power Moons can be seen in the Power Plant.

  • The rooftop pool beside the top of city hall was significantly deeper in the game's E3 2017 demo, with the water level being just over Mario's head; in the final game, the water level approximately reaches Mario's neck.[8] It is likely that this change was due to the original water level leaving Mario susceptible to drowning, as demonstrated in a YouTube video uploaded by gaming news site Polygon during E3.[9]
  • The landmass the Metro, Snow, Ruined, and Bowser's Kingdoms are all located on resembles Laurasia.
