P Warp Doors are Warp Doors that can only be entered when a P Switch is active. These Warp Doors made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3, but with a different appearance from its current one.


Super Mario Bros. 3[edit]

A P Warp Door first appears in Super Mario Bros. 3 in the second fortress of Giant Land. This P Warp Door is invisible, and an outline of Blue Coins will show where to enter when the P Switch is pressed. P Warp Doors also appear in later fortresses including World 7-Fortress1-SMB3.png and World 8-Fortress1-SMB3.png, this time in visible form, represented as a white rectangular doorway.

Super Mario World[edit]

An inactive P Warp Door in Super Mario Maker

In Super Mario Maker, P Warp Doors were introduced in the version 1.30 update. They have new sprites for all styles, in the same blue as the P Switches with a white or blue "P". Unlike in Super Mario World, they are visible as outlines when not active.

P Warp Doors also return in Super Mario Maker 2, behaving exactly the same as in the predecessor.


Super Mario Maker[edit]

  • Play Nintendo: "Unlike regular Warp Doors, these are only visible while a P Switch is active – perfect for creating truly devious Ghost House courses."[1]
