Piranha Creeper Creek after Dark (the "after" is capitalized in the British English Wii U version), otherwise known as World Flower-3, is the third level of World Flower in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. It is unlocked alongside Floating Fuzzy Time Mine by completing Switch Shock Circus, and completion of either level unlocks Faster Fort Fire Bros.


The level is a remake of the World 4-2 level Piranha Creeper Creek. The level retains many features from the original level. Various Piranha Creepers lie around the level. The level skips the underground section from the original level. New to the level are unlit torches in each section. In the second section, the level contains Parabones and fire torches on grass platforms. The shifting platforms move faster and are spaced slightly farther apart. The secret warp pipe from the original level is replaced with invisible clouds for access, coin stacks and Piranha Creepers, a ? Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom, and a regular pipe that returns the player to the rest of the level. In the third and final section, there are three torches and three Piranha Creepers, one of which can be used to reach the top of the Goal Pole.

Green Stars[edit]

All Green Stars require a Fire Flower.

  • Green Star 1: The player must light all eight torches at the beginning of the level to earn this Green Star.
  • Green Star 2: The player must light all twelve torches in the second area to obtain this Green Star.
  • Green Star 3: The player must light all three torches at the end of the level, before the Goal Pole, to earn this Green Star.
