<< List of levels >>

Plucky Pass Beginnings is the first course of Episode 1, and subsequently, of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. It is a short grassy level with the Toad Brigade, a Shy Guy, and a wooden tower holding the Power Star.


Captain Toad starts beneath a hill where the Toad Brigade rests. Then, he must walk around the corner and use a switch to raise a platform to the next level. Here, he can find three Turnips and a Ladder which leads to the Shy Guy and a Super Pickax. The pickax can break a number of stone blocks, revealing a garden of coin-yielding plants and/or a secret area with a Gold Mushroom worth 50 coins. They can also use a switch to raise the play structure to access the Power Star.

Super Gems[edit]

Three Super Gems can be found throughout the level.

  • Super Gem 1: In an alcove near the start of the level, which can be reached with a nearby ramp.
  • Super Gem 2: Behind a POW block, which requires either Captain Toad to throw a Turnip at it (in order to destroy the block) or the player to tap the POW Block on the touch screen.
  • Super Gem 3: Given by Blue Toad, who can be found on a high ledge accessible via raising the playground.

Bonus Objective[edit]

  • Collected the Gold Mushroom! (NTSC)
  • Grabbed the Gold Mushroom (PAL)
  • Target Time: 16 Seconds


Pixel Toad[edit]

The Pixel Toad is in the back side of a wall that also has a Golden Mushroom and a Wingo poster on the right.

Luigi Sighting[edit]

There is a hidden 8-bit Luigi located behind the arrow sign in the back of the course. It is removed from the Switch and 3DS versions of the game.
