The Wooded Kingdom is a region featured in Super Mario Odyssey, and can either be the fourth or the fifth location visited, depending on if the player selects to go here or to the Lake Kingdom after leaving the Sand Kingdom. It is the greater location of Steam Gardens, a large forest area containing several iron structures. This area is also surrounded by large mountains, as well as a geodesic dome. The Steam Gardens is home to the Steam Gardeners, who water and grow flowers throughout the area, especially in their Sky Garden and Secret Flower Field. This area is also home to their prized Soirée Bouquet.

When Mario first visits this kingdom, the Broodals can be found invading the Sky Garden. After traversing through the Iron Road, Mario reaches the top of the Sky Garden Tower, where he encounters Spewart, one of the Broodals. Upon defeating him, Mario will be rewarded with a Multi Moon, which (when collected) causes Torkdrift to appear and wreak havoc in the Secret Flower Field. Mario must then traverse through the area (which is now overrun by Sherms) and reach the entrance to the Secret Flower Field at the far northern reaches of the kingdom. Upon entering the Secret Flower Field, Mario will encounter Torkdrift, who is attempting to steal the flowers. If Mario can successfully defeat Torkdrift, he will be rewarded with another Multi Moon. Collecting this one will restore the Steam Gardens to its former glory, allowing the Steam Gardeners to continue growing flowers and allowing access to more Power Moons. Once Mario collects enough Power Moons, he can access the next kingdom - either the Lake Kingdom (if the player has not yet visited it) or the Cloud Kingdom (if both the Lake and Wooded Kingdoms have been visited).

If Mario falls into the pit below the kingdom's southern region, he lands in the Deep Woods, a dark forest inhabited by a T-Rex. To escape, Mario must plant a seed dispensed by a blue Steam Gardener into one of the glowing pots to grow a beanstalk that leads back to the kingdom's mainland.

This location is potentially based on Germany, Austria, or Switzerland. The Steam Gardens' original name, Kogwald, is German for "Cog Woods", and the background features mountains that resemble the Alps. The location also vaguely resembles Canada due to its dense forests and snowy mountains.

The Wooded Kingdom is located south of the Lake Kingdom, southeast of the Sand Kingdom, and southwest of the Cloud Kingdom.

Brochure details[edit]

You can't miss the bright red machinery.

The Living Factory[edit]

No one knows who built the giant machines dotting this land, but today the Steam Gardeners use them to maintain the greatest flower gardens in the world. The giant dome is climate-controlled and apparently self-sufficient, operating with no maintenance since ancient times.

Locals are a bit off-putting but quite friendly.

Guardians of Paradise[edit]

Visitors are welcomed not only by the humid air, but worker robots tending the flowers. They're known as Steam Gardeners, longtime residents of the kingdom. You'll be impressed at how long they can work without rest, maintaining themselves perfectly. But beyond being hard workers, the robots love flowers—some grow them right out of their heads! You'll feel the Steam Gardeners' warm hearts, from their flowers and also their internal steam pumps.

There are flower gardens everywhere.

Flowers as a Way of Life[edit]

While you'll see amazing flowers on any visit, you might be lucky enough to see the famous Steam Gardens Soirée Bouquet. It features giant white flowers that charm all who lay eyes on it. As you might guess from the name, it's by far the most popular bouquet for wedding ceremonies, sought after by wedding planners the world over.

Bring a pith helmet if you go exploring here!

A Deep Wood's Secret[edit]

It doesn't appear on any tours, but there is an area untouched by the machines of the Steam Gardens. Here the trees grow quickly, barely allowing any light through. The Steam Gardeners do not speak of it, but rumor has it they discourage visiting this place because of the danger posed by the giant creatures that call it home.

Safety tip: Don't dawdle.

A Growing Walkway[edit]

Be sure to try the system of paths called the Flower Road. You'll marvel at plants growing into temporary but walkable bridges. Watch your step, though—nature has no handrails.

Birds NOT of a Feather[edit]

Local birds here seem remarkably fond of their mechanical neighbors.

Three Keys to the Kingdom[edit]

  1. Smell the flowers. Not that you can miss them, but do savor the scent.
  2. Admire the Steam Gardeners and their impressive devotion to their work.
  3. Appreciate machines and nature living in exquisite harmony.

Objectives[edit]

Paintings[edit]

There are two paintings in this kingdom. One is located near the Forest Charging Station and it can be accessed easily by throwing Cappy to the Scarecrow that activates the Wooded Kingdom Timer Challenge 2 Power Moon, as well as the Scarecrow that activates the Wooded Kingdom Timer Challenge 3 Power Moon. By going to the top of the platforms and then jumping to the surface the player will find a cube-shaped structure in which the painting is. It can take the player to either the Southwestern Floating Island at the Sand Kingdom or the Floating Sky Island at the Luncheon Kingdom, and it can be accessed after defeating Spewart.

The other painting is located inside the Iron Cage, which can only be accessed from a painting at the Metro Kingdom, Snow Kingdom or Seaside Kingdom.

Power Moons[edit]

The Wooded Kingdom has blue Power Moons.
Main article: List of Power Moons in the Wooded Kingdom

There are a total of 76 Power Moons in the Wooded Kingdom. During the player's first visit to this kingdom, they can collect 49 Power Moons, including one from the kingdom's Hint Art. The player can also collect a Power Moon by traveling through a painting in a future kingdom (the Metro Kingdom, Seaside Kingdom, or Snow Kingdom). After the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, 4 more Power Moons become available to collect. The Moon Rock will also be available to destroy, causing 22 additional Power Moons to be accessible.

In order to progress to the next kingdom, the player must collect at least 16 Power Moons.

Regional coins[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • During the reveal trailer, the electronic billboard for Steam Gardens found in New Donk City showed that the location was originally named "Kogwald". The name is a portmanteau of cog and -wald, the German word for forest.
  • Thematically, the Wooded Kingdom is very similar to the setting of the 1972 science fiction film Silent Running, which takes place in a giant greenhouse maintained by robots that also happen to resemble the Steam Gardeners.
  • According to Pauline's quiz, she has no interest in going to the Wooded Kingdom, as she claims she is bad at both flowers and machinery.
  • This kingdom's Moon Rock releases the most moons out of all the kingdoms that have Moon Rocks, releasing 22 Power Moons when activated.
