Mushroom Kingdom (Super Mario Odyssey)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
The Mushroom Kingdom is the fifteenth kingdom visited in Super Mario Odyssey. It is the greater location of Peach's Castle, which is based on its design from Super Mario 64, sharing a similar layout (including the castle grounds, first floor interior, and courtyard), with the music of the interior being rearranged as well. The kingdom itself contains multiple references to Super Mario 64, with many of them taking the form of Power Moon requirements. The Mushroom Kingdom can be first seen by traveling through a painting in the Luncheon Kingdom, which leads to Yoshi's House on a floating platform away from the main area. The rest of the area cannot be explored until after rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, after which the Odyssey can fly to the kingdom. Power Stars take the place of Power Moons in this kingdom, though they are still referred to as Power Moons when collected, and they resemble regular Power Moons when loaded onto the Odyssey.
A Lovely Portrait in Glass
Because Princess Peach is so often absent from her kingdom, her citizens took it upon themselves to create a stained-glass portrait of her on the castle balcony. While a pale reflection of the genuine article, the portrait brings comfort to the citizenry when their princess can't be with them.
In older times, the towers dotting the landscape here were watchtowers. Now they hold and preserve a series of mysterious paintings. These incredibly detailed works are so real that admirers speak of being pulled into another world by the paintings.
However, it's extremely rare for tourists to be permitted to see them, due to some undescribed danger, and casual visits are discouraged.
Places to Relax
The Toads of the Mushroom Kingdom value their relaxation and have created several lovely spots on the castle grounds for that purpose. Neither too small nor too large, and with just the right amount of ornamentation, these plazas and courtyards exemplify the best traits of this kingdom.
Slightly Scary Woods
Even the serene Mushroom Kingdom has its more dangerous locales. This forest was originally planted for mushroom cultivation, but while the mushrooms have flourished, a large number of wild Goombas have also moved in. While it's come to be known as Goomba Woods, it's still a pleasant place for a stroll, so if you're not afraid of these fearsome beasts, why not treat yourself to a walk?
A Castle's Water Feature
The only lake on the castle grounds features a small but lovely waterfall and is a popular spot to visit. The lake formed naturally, but some claim that its shape is familiar. Hmm...
These fruit thrive in the warm climate here and are a favorite of many creatures that reside in the Mushroom Kingdom.
Three Keys to the Kingdom
Enemies marked with an asterisk (*) are only found in bonus areas, while the non-boss enemies marked with a caret (^) are found during the boss rematches.
There are eight paintings in this kingdom, six of which are boss rematch paintings while the other two are warp paintings.
There are two warp paintings. One is located near some trees next to the Odyssey. It can lead the player either to the Snow Kingdom Clifftop at the Snow Kingdom or the Diving Platform at the Seaside Kingdom, and can be used at any time. The other painting is found at Yoshi's House and can be only accessed from a painting at Luncheon Kingdom.
There are six boss rematch paintings. Knucklotec's painting is located inside a tower at the west of the kingdom, Ruined Dragon's painting is located inside a pipe under the castle's moat blocked with a Berry that only Yoshi can eat, Mechawiggler's painting is inside a tower at the north of the kingdom, Torkdrift's painting is inside a tower that can be accessed by climbing a vine, Mollusque-Lanceur's painting is located at a pipe under the moat where Dorrie is, and Cookatiel's painting is located at a tower next to where Dorrie is.
There are a total of 116 Power Moons (98 regular Power Moons and 6 Multi Moons) to be found in the Mushroom Kingdom, more than any other kingdom in the game; 61 of these moons are obtained by completing achievements for Toadette.
