Mt. Lava Lava
This level is volcano-themed, and has many pits of lava with slow-moving platforms to get across them. Many boulders are also here that crush Wario beneath them, but do not cause him damage. It is the first level to introduce Volcannons as enemies and have a Pitchfork as the golden enemy. When Wario first approaches the volcano, he encounters the slow-moving platforms and Volcannons. He then enters the volcano, where the boulders can be found. When Wario frees the caged Merfle and begins his escape, he will have to outrun a boulder, and another hidden large boulder waiting for him will lead him towards more coins.
Secret Map location
Mt. Lava Lava also has a Secret Map. To get the map, Wario must free the Merfle and go into the hole without pounding. Wario then needs to Earthshake Punch and stay ahead of the boulder until he reaches a rope. He must swing on it and wait for the rock to pass, then pound an Earthshake Punch to reveal the map.
