In Super Mario Wiki's humble beginnings, the Mushroom World, a set of worlds that appear in Super Mario Bros. 3, was bizarrely an article treating it as an entire planet seperate from Earth for the Super Mario franchise. It stood like this for seven years, until a proposal came in to completely overhaul this article. This article was a relic of when the wiki was more accepting to fanon ideals, even once having references to the Isle o' Hags, a location from the Banjo-Kazooie franchise, as early on in the wiki's life, Banjo and Conker content were once given some sort of coverage.

I am still currently getting this article worked so I can properly document it. It was pulled from an old history revision of the article.

Not to be confused with World Mushroom or Super Mario Bros. Mushroom World.

Mushroom World (Japanese: きのこのせかい), also known as Mario World (Japanese: マリオワールド) is the name of the planet Mario and his friends reside on. The planet is part of the Grand Finale Galaxy, which is one of many galaxies in the universe. Mushroom World is the greater setting of most of the games in the Mario series and sub-series.

The Mushroom Kingdom, Castle of Koopa, and various other lands and kingdoms associated with the Mushroom Kingdom, such as Dinosaur Land, the Beanbean Kingdom, and Sarasaland, all exist on the Mushroom World; and while it has never been made explicit, it is highly likely that locations from closely related series (such as the Donkey Kong and WarioWare series) also exist on the Mushroom World.

Several small galaxies are in orbit around Mushroom World, including the Gateway Galaxy, the Good Egg Galaxy and Bowser Jr.'s Robot Reactor. Galaxies relatively close to Mushroom World on the map of the universe include the Sky Station Galaxy, Honeyhive Galaxy, the Loopdeeloop Galaxy and the Yoshi Star Galaxy.

Mushroom World and Earth are almost always believed to be separate planets, though confusion does exist in the form of remarkably similar ecosystems and terrains, several species of animals and obvious human populations on Mushroom World. In other media such as the various cartoon series and comics, Earth and Mushroom World were understood to be different versions of the same planet in separate universes, and Mushroom World was noticeably cartoony and slightly surreal (eg. Pasta Land, Down Under Land). In most sources travel between the two planets is possible through warp pipes, a fact that has remained consistent throughout.

Named lands of Mushroom World

These are the lands associated with the Mushroom Kingdom and thus the greater Mushroom World. These lands appear in the Mario series of games, as well as some spin-off titles. (The lands marked with * mean they were only shown on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!)

Worlds distinct from Mushroom World

The following is a list of planets separate from Mushroom World. (The planets marked with * mean they were only shown on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!)

Other worlds in the universe

Worlds in other dimensions

  • Earth is Mushroom World's "double" in a parallel universe. It can sometimes be accessed via Warp Pipes. It is in our Dimension.
  • In Super Paper Mario, Flipside, a place "between dimensions" is explored by Mario as well as other characters, and also Flopside, Flipside's counterpart, which is equally explored by Mario & Co. This game also contains an entire planet that exists in a different dimension: Planet Blobule. In fact, the game contains many other dimensions distinct from Mario's dimension. There is also a cloud that will make Mario and Co go to the top of the overthere stair, and Mario and Co will bounce in space showing a planet that could be the Mushroom World.
  • The lands of Wario: Master of Disguise are in an alternate TV dimension that can be reached via the Telmet.
  • The various worlds traveled to in DK: Jungle Climber, such as Glass Maze, Toy Box and Veggie Patch, exist in different dimensions.
  • In Wario Land: Shake It!, a universe named the Shake Dimension is contained within an ancient globe located in a museum somewhere on Mushroom World.
  • The Factory is the home universe of the Smithy Gang, and can be accessed via Exor.
  • Subcon is a dimension that exists in Mario's dreams.
  • Subspace Dimensions that exist in giant purple balls in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Subspace is created via the explosion of Subspace Bombs or a firing of the Dark Cannon.
