A wooden Trapdoor

Trapdoors[1] are doors that lead to Bonus Areas, found in the game Wario World. There are two types of trapdoor: wooden and steel. Wooden Trapdoors feature small obstacle courses or puzzles, which are usually underground. They are distinguishable from steel Trapdoors by the "X" shape of bandages on them. Wario can enter them by Ground Pounding them. Trapdoors reward the player with a red diamond, and possibly a Gold Statue piece.

Wario on a steel Trapdoor

Unlike wooden Trapdoors, which can be entered with a Ground Pound, steel Trapdoors require a Piledriver to get through. Once inside, Wario finds himself in an expansive obstacle course in the sky, with no solid ground at all. Falling off the floating platforms forces him to start over, but Wario does not lose any health. Steel trapdoors are typically platforming challenges.

Other possible rewards for clearing trapdoors are Spritelings or a Wooden Chest. As the game progresses, the trapdoors become more difficult, some even placing some rewards halfway through instead of at the end.
