World 1-3 is the third level in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. This is the first level to feature Yoshi as well as Hammer Bros. It is unlocked by completing World 1-2, and its own completion unlocks World 1-NSMBW Tower Icon.png and a Yellow Toad House. There is also a secret exit in this level, which leads to a Warp Cannon. The Ground Theme plays throughout this level, with a special drum line added whenever any player rides a Yoshi.


The level is set in a grassland like World 1-1. There are platforms that use a similar design to the regular ground but are lighter to indicate that they can be passed through. There is a Hammer Bro on a set of Brick Blocks above some Warp Pipes stuck horizontally into the ground. The player will then find Yoshi for the first time. Yoshi can eat fruits off trees; when he eats five fruits, he will release an egg containing a power-up. The first Star Coin is found right after, then there will be a set of three Koopa Troopas and six Goombas, which can be used to get a 1-Up. Next is a small pit followed by another block containing Yoshi eggs, then two rows of blocks, which a Hammer Bro jumps on. The midway point is located after this, followed by the entrance to the second Star Coin. Outside the exit to the hidden area is a Pipe with a Venus Fire Trap, a few Goombas, and two Koopa Troopas. Yoshi can be used to spit one of the fireballs to get up to three 1-Ups. The player must then continue down the course, past a few Hammer Bros., until they reach the pole.

Secret Mini Mario cave[edit]

If a player makes it to the checkpoint with the Mini Mushroom power-up active, they can enter a pipe half-submerged with a small pipe sticking out of the bottom. The secret room has two Koopa Troopas and many coins.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is floating in the air shortly after the first Yoshi egg. Mario and co. must use Yoshi's flutter to reach it.
  • Star Coin 2: Shortly after the midway point, there will be five Warp Pipes from which Piranha Plants emerge (four green, one yellow). To the right of the shortest green one is a secret area that contains a hidden sixth Pipe, which Mario and co. must enter. The second Star Coin is then to the immediate right, and Yoshi's flutter must be used to reach it.
  • Star Coin 3: Directly above the upside-down red pipe with the Piranha Plant is the third Star Coin, which is floating high in the air. Mario and co. can get the Star Coin either by jumping to it from the red pipe or by dismounting Yoshi at the apex of his flutter.

Hidden goal[edit]

The hidden goal can be found shortly before the third Star Coin, just after the Venus Fire Trap. The player needs to jump to the high cliff edge leading to a hidden passage. Once the player reaches the entrance point, they need to jump over the passage above the screen and travel across the top. At the end of this path is a hidden pipe, which will send the players to the hidden goal. The secret exit will take the players to the World 1-NSMBW Warp Cannon Icon.pngCannon Warp Cannon, which will send them to World 5.

  • In the Prima Games guide, the yellow pipe exiting from the cave area where the second Star Coin is located is mistakenly the pipe with the Venus Fire Trap, whereas in the game, it is actually the pipe on the hill. The green pipe exit from the Mini Mario cave is also mistakenly the pipe just before the pipe to the second Star Coin instead of the pipe near the third Star Coin like in the game.
