The Mushroom Kingdom stage in Super Smash Bros.

Mushroom Kingdom is the name of two different stages in the Super Smash Bros. series. In the original Super Smash Bros., it is the only unlockable stage. It is set to resemble Super Mario Bros., with brick blocks, falling platforms, Warp Pipes with Piranha Plants, POW Blocks and a scene from the original game in the background. It is unlocked by beating 1-P Mode with all of the eight default players, and then playing all of the other stages in Vs Mode. By going through a Warp Pipe, the player is placed at random at either the other Warp Pipe of the stage or above the abyss. The stage has additional basis in Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, as there are red Piranha Plants that were first seen in that game, not Super Mario Bros. The castle in the background of the stage has a flag on top of it, which cannot happen in the original game.

The stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee

The stage returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but not as a past stage. Instead, the stage appears much differently from its original design. Various items were added, such as Brick Blocks and ? Blocks, and some were removed, like POW blocks, and floating unbreakable blocks. However, as homage to the old stage, warp pipes in the ditches were added, but have no use. The stage is also a default stage, and is usually where Mario or Luigi are fought. The stage has two holes in the middle of it which, although small, can be very deadly once trapped in one of them. There is also a group of breakable Brick Blocks that cover the entire middle platform, as well as item-containing ? Blocks. In the early version of Super Smash Bros. Melee, the stage had a different layout, featuring the pipes from the original Super Smash Bros. version. This was altered in the final for unknown reasons.

Mushroom Kingdom also appears in Adventure Mode, as Stage 1: Mushroom Kingdom. In this stage, the player must traverse a traditional Super Mario Bros. side-scrolling level. Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and Koopa Paratroopas act as enemies. Half-way through the stage, the player will have to battle a herd of Yoshis. These Yoshis are weaker than the normal Yoshi, so it is easy to knock them out. Once finished, the player continues to the finish line and onto the second half of stage 1, Princess Peach's Castle.

The stage is not included in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. However, a similar stage, Mushroomy Kingdom, is included, with a more realistic and barren appearance; it is an auto-scrolling reproduction of World 1-1 (and 1-2 as well), though the screen does not appear cluttered with the many elements which could be seen in the original game itself.

Another version of the stage appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, taking its appearance from New Super Mario Bros. U. However, it is now called Mushroom Kingdom U. As the players battle, Kamek will use his magic to change the setting, taking them through the game's worlds such as Acorn Plains and Sparkling Waters.

The stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The stage from Super Smash Bros. returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with a graphical overhaul, being more accurate toward the original Super Mario Bros. and having a background looking like the one present in Super Mario Maker. Notably, while the pipes are still 3-dimensional, they have black outlines and textures resembling their Super Mario Bros. sprites. The green Koopa Troopa in the background is now red, more accurate to its behavior.
