The Star World is the eighth world of Super Mario World that can be reached by one of the five Star Roads.

The levels have different colored Yoshis in them, and there is a Yoshi in the beginning of a few of the levels so the player can exit the stage with a new ride. From the Star World, one can also get to the Special Zone.

To beat the Star World, the player needs to find the secret exit of each level. Through finding Star Roads and clearing stages in the Star World, the player can take shortcuts in completing the game. The Star Roads link to Donut Plains, the Vanilla Dome, the Twin Bridges, the Forest of Illusion, and the Valley of Bowser.

The Star World reappears in Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge. The moon featured here now appears in the top right rather than the top left.

Appearances in other media[edit]

Star Path as it appears in the Super Mario World television series.

The Star World appeared in at least two episodes of the Super Mario World animated series, although here it was referred to as the Star Path.

The Star Path first appeared in the episode "Send in the Clown" where it was used by Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Princess Toadstool to transport themselves to Neon Castle. In "King Scoopa Koopa", the Star Path is used by Mario and Princess Toadstool to escape from several cave-people (as well as from Luigi and Yoshi), who have been mutated into Chickadactyl-monsters.
