Like the Ground Theme (Super Mario World) article covers variations, this article might cover the information about two other themes: Bob-omb Battlefield and Snow Mountain. Delfino4 (talk) 01:11, September 28, 2019 (EDT)

Except Slider isn't the base composition; that would be the "Lakitu flies around the castle" theme. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:24, September 28, 2019 (EDT)
