I was curious about the Thwomp locked behind bars near the beginning in the green light. Whats is with this? This seems strange, could it be that he has done something wrong? Learner 17:52, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

It is possibly a stage prop or hazard (although it is trapped in the bars). It may also be there to distract human racers. Mariofan459Mario's side.gif

The caged Thwomp has no significance to the course. Speculation is pointless.--Knife (talk) 16:15, 25 September 2009 (EDT)

It has no effect on the course, its probably just there to distract you.Possibly, if they bring it back in the next one(MarioKart3DS-Cant wait!), it might serve a purpose.-Smileymiley5001

Is it true that the Green Thwomp is named Marty? --YoshiMP8Artwork.png SuperYoshiBros YoshiMP8Artwork.png 18:44, 8 April 2011 (EDT)

I just Googled it, and it's listed as being named such on other wikis, on YouTube, Gamefaqs, etc., but I haven't found anything official (i.e. from Nintendo). I'll just put a refneeded tag on it. Mario4Ever 18:49, 8 April 2011 (EDT)

Should we note MK7's version? Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 10:51, 27 September 2011 (EDT)


I know of a glitch shortcut in the WII version. Should this bee added to the article (I'm wondering because it's a glitch). Arceus79 22:14, 23 March 2012 (EDT)

No, I don't think we should add it. You can add it in Mario Kart Wii/Glitches, though. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Glitch in Mario Kart DS[edit]

I just played Mario Kart DS, and I noticed that when the course is played in VS Mode, the ranking shows that you're in 7th place even though you're in the 8th place position. SMW2yoshi.gif Super Chris HelperMario.png

Name change.[edit]

Can we change this to race course instead of just course? "Course" seems a bit vague, such as it possibly being a golf course. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 01:38, 24 July 2014 (EDT)


Actually, the first Bowser's Castle to have water is in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. In that one, the water is just outside of the castle, but serves as a hazard. Mario Kart 7 is the second one to have water in a Bowser's Castle course, but for underwater driving. --PrincessDaisyFanatic3883 (talk) 01:28, 30 January 2015 (EST)


I'm not good at hearing similarities in music to another, so I was just wondering if the music for Bowser's Castle in Super Mario Kart is a remix of the final boss theme from Super Mario World? I mean, few people say that they sound very similar, along that one of them is literally a spinoff of the other, and many people call one a remix of the other, or that they're the same song. 21:13, 15 November 2016 (EST)

The music is not considered a remix as it's a completely new arrangement of the theme. It's probably most likely a cover version (we use rearrangement rather than cover version because of how unwieldy that term is). BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 21:36, 15 November 2016 (EST)
So they're actually the same song, right? 21:42, 15 November 2016 (EST)
No, they're not the same song. You're misusing the term "remix" when the term you're thinking of is actually a new arrangement of the music. In fact, remixes are actually the same song, but with different beats and instruments, with some heavy editing overlayed on top of them.

Why do we have this? It's basically just a glorified disambiguation page, and we already have a disambiguation page for Bowser's Castle. What little information is here belongs on the Mario Kart section of the Bowser's Castle article. For the same reason that we don't need Sherbet Land (race course), we don't need this.

Agreed, for the same reason brought up the proposal, this isn't needed. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 08:30, March 13, 2019 (EDT)
Then get a TTP rolling. If the intention is to have all race course articles of this type merged into a main article, I would suggest a formal proposal. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 23:56, April 29, 2019 (EDT)
This doesn't need to be dragged on for two more weeks. The situation matches that of Sherbet Land exactly which received a great amount of support for deletion. I'd be willing to go ahead and delete the page if no one objects. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:34, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
Interesting scenario... I'm not too sure about how to proceed either. Even if a lot of work has been put into it. I'm not supporting or opposing, i'm just saying that i'm not sure about how to proceed either. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 07:44, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
