Skyward Stalk, or Sparkling Waters-NSMBU Leaf Icon.png, is the secret course of Sparkling Waters in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via the secret exit in Haunted Shipwreck. Its completion skips Soda Jungle and unlocks Rock-Candy Mines and Fuzzy Clifftop. Its name may be a reference to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, another game produced by Nintendo.


The course's main feature is a constantly growing beanstalk that sprouts giant leaves and other plant life. The level autoscrolls upward. The level has many Balloon Goombas and Waddle Wings.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is found on the left side of the course, on a leaf.
  • Star Coin 2: The second Star Coin is on an orange bridge, covered by light clouds.
  • Star Coin 3: Near the end of the course, the third Star Coin can be seen to the right side.
