Pipe-Rock Plateau Palace is a level in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, being the final level in Pipe-Rock Plateau. The level takes place in a palace, with a fight against Bowser Jr. at the end. The path to the palace is unlocked after clearing Wiggler Race Mountaineering!, but the palace itself is locked and can only be opened with fourteen Pipe-Rock Plateau Wonder Seeds. Clearing it unlocks a path to enter Petal Isles for the first time. This level contains one Wonder Seed, as well as the first Royal Seed.


The player starts at the entrance of the palace, where a Talking Flower is disgusted by a nearby vine. Once inside the palace, Wonder power causes Bone Goombas to appear out of thin air. A row of blocks, consisting of brick, rotating, and hard kinds connect to rectangular platforms. The left platform has a blue interactive tulip that when touched, causes coins to appear. An Invisible Character Block is also here, which only Yellow Yoshi can see. The right platform has a ? Block that contains an Elephant Fruit, or a Super Mushroom if the player is small.

After progressing a little bit, there is a group of coins and a flower coin, but two pipes block the way. A nearby interactive tulips lowers the right pipe, thus allowing the player to obtain the coins. After that is two rows of breakable blocks, where Hammer Bros are. One of these blocks contains lots of coins and some flower coins. The next area has a long ? Block, followed by two rows of Rotating Blocks, with a pipe that endlessly spawns Bone Goombas. The first Checkpoint Flag is found right afterward.

After the Checkpoint Flag is a ? Block containing an Elephant Fruit or a Super Mushroom, depending on the player's size. A Wonder Flower is found before the Checkpoint Flag, where if touched causes pipe to fall down while the effect is active. Falling pipes allow access to a higher path, where Dry Bones will appear. Pipes will even fall and crush a Hammer Bro, creating a pipe staircase. The Wonder Seed is found right after, and collecting it will stop the Wonder Effect. There is then a long staircase that leads to the second Checkpoint Flag, along with a gate, leading to an intermission area. The intermission area has a block that shuffles between a Super Mushroom and an Elephant Fruit. At the end of the area is a pipe that leads to Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. then fights the player.

At the start of the fight, Bowser Jr. spins inside his shell for a short time, and when he stops he is vulnerable to damage. After taking damage, he transforms into Wonder Bowser Jr., and changes the size of the player to big, and himself to small. After taking damage again, Wonder Bowser Jr. becomes big, while the player becomes small, reversing the effects of the previous phase. He now gains the ability to jump high and attempt to ground-pound the player. He also takes less damage while giant, with a jump simply lightly hurting him. After enough damage is dealt, Wonder Bowser Jr. is defeated, and reverts back to normal. He then leaves the area, and the player obtains a Royal Seed.

10-flower coins[edit]

  • 10-flower coin 1: Found from a blue interactive tulip right after the first checkpoint. The player must slide down a wall to activate it, causing the tulip to make the 10-flower coin appear.
  • 10-flower coin 2: Found in between some blocks that can only be destroyed with the Elephant Fruit power-up. If the player has said power-up, they can destroy the blocks and reach the coin.
  • 10-flower coin 3: Found above the lava; with the help of the Wonder Effect, the player can use a slow-falling pipe to get the coin before the pipe sinks.
