The Mushroom Kingdom has inspired several stages in the Super Smash Bros. series. Two of these, both called Mushroom Kingdom, are based off of the kingdom as it appeared in the original Super Mario Bros., with usable Warp Pipes and POW Blocks in Super Smash Bros., and ? Blocks and Brick Blocks in Melee. Despite its name, Mushroom Kingdom II from Melee is based off of Subcon as it appeared in Super Mario Bros. 2. All three of these stages feature 3-D versions of stage elements, such as blocks and platforms, while any characters are portrayed as flat 2-D images.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee's Adventure Mode, the first stage is also called Mushroom Kingdom, where players have to get past Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and a team of Yoshis to reach Princess Peach's Castle, where Peach and either Mario or Luigi are fought. Two Toads also appear, one at the Yoshi arena and one at the endpoint.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl features Mushroomy Kingdom. As a tongue-in-cheek reference to the relative age of Super Mario Bros. in real-world publication history, this stage depicts worlds from that game as long-abandoned ("ancient" in the Japanese script) regions. Familiar structures are now old, worn-down ruins and the entire stage appears as a barren desert and cave. The stage depicts replicated versions of either World 1-1 or World 1-2 when selected.

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, the Mushroom Kingdom, most commonly referred to as "Mushroomland," is a central plot point in the show; the Mushroom Kingdom is apparently under the influence of King Koopa in the show. Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Toadstool spend the bulk of the series' episodes searching for someone or something that could free it from his grasp.
