World 1 is a grassy-themed world in Dr. Mario World which serves as a tutorial for the game. Prior to playing a stage, Dr. Toad guides the player through a tutorial stage. The first area, or the first 20 stages give the player infinite hearts. Players start out with Dr. Mario, where players can obtain Dr. Peach or Dr. Bowser by stage 3. Players earn their first assistant, the Goomba, after beating Stage 5, as well as unlocking versus mode, staffing and the ability to add friends. Since version 2.0.0, skill summit is also unlocked and Dr. Toad is obtained as an extra doctor.

When areas are cleared, Toads of different colors appear, including purple, yellow, blue, green, and red. In the second area, Dorrie also appears after clearing it. The viruses featured in the regular stages are red, blue and yellow.

Area 1[edit]

Image Stage Overview
Stage 1 from Dr. Mario World since version 2.0.0 Stage 1 Starting with 20 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (17).

In this stage, there are three colors of viruses in groups.

Prior to version 1.3.5, this stage only has red viruses, and Empty Blocks exist. Additionally, the layout since that version had changed in version 1.4.0, and taken from version 1.4.0 of Stage 2 for version 2.0.0.

Stage 2 from Dr. Mario World since version 2.0.0 Stage 2 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (25).

This stage has gaps within the columns of red and blue viruses, along with yellow viruses in groups.

In the initial version of this stage, it only has red and blue viruses. Newer version of this stage has all three colors of viruses. In version 2.0.0, this stage's layout is moved to stage 1 while this stage has a new layout.

Stage 3 from Dr. Mario World since version 2.1.0 Stage 3 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (24). The only colors available in this stage are red and blue.

This stage introduces Brick Blocks, which are interspersed among the red viruses. Blue viruses are placed on the two leftmost and two rightmost columns. Since version 2.0.0, when players complete this stage, they can choose to be either Dr. Mario, Dr. Peach, or Dr. Bowser, rendering the other two unavailable after they have made their choice.

In the initial version of this stage, this was the first stage to have three colors of viruses (red, blue and yellow) along with empty blocks. In version 2.0.0, this stage's layout from a later version of this stage is moved to stage 2 while this stage is using a new layout. Prior to version 2.1.0, this stage layout was different, where three viruses of different colors were present.

Stage 4 from Dr. Mario World since version 1.4.0 Stage 4 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (16).

This stage introduces skill chargers, energy bottles that grant doctors a substantially-charged skill meter when activated.

In the initial version of this stage, there is a long column and row of yellow viruses, with the two other colors of virus to the left and right of the stage. A later version of this stage is the first stage to introduce skill chargers along with brick blocks, but since version 1.4.0, the stage layout changed in a way that brick blocks are not present.

Stage 5 from Dr. Mario World since version 1.4.0 Stage 5 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (33).

This stage has viruses arranged in rows and columns in pairs of identical colors, lined up alongside brick blocks and a couple empty blocks. Additionally, players are introduced to the rainbow capsule, which will appear as the capsule after the next one after making seven clears, as indicated by the rainbow meter at the sides of the stage. Since version 2.0.0, players are able to select different characters, play the versus mode and add friends, as well as obtain their first assistant, a Goomba.

In the initial version of this stage, this is the first stage to introduce Brick Blocks, blocks that are eliminated when an adjacent feature, such as viruses or pills, are destroyed. The current version of this stage's layout used the stage layout of stage 9 prior to version 1.4.0, but with the capsule amount reduced from 30 to 25.

Stage 6 from Dr. Mario World since version 1.4.0 Stage 6 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (19).

This stage introduces shells as stage features, objects that can eliminate items horizontally when activated.

In the initial version of this stage, this stage orients viruses and brick blocks horizontally as opposed to the vertical orientation of Stage 5. Since then, this stage is the first stage to introduce shells, with a later version of this stage in particular being shaped like an "M".

Stage 7 from Dr. Mario World since version 1.4.0 Stage 7 Starting with 20 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (24).

This stage has six shells in six rows: three on the left in line with viruses, and three on the left in line with brick blocks.

In the initial version of this stage, The stage orients viruses in a less consistent manner than previous stages, which also introduces empty blocks mixed in as obstacles. Rainbow capsules can be obtained in this level due to the increased number of matches required to obtain one. A later version of this stage has skill chargers alongside shells.

Stage 8 from Dr. Mario World since version 1.4.0 Stage 8 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (28).

This stage introduces Exploders, bombs that destroy objects in tiles adjacent to them when activated.

In the initial version of this stage, this stage introduces shells as stage features, objects that can eliminate items horizontally when activated. A later version of this stage continues using shells as a stage feature.

Stage 9 from Dr. Mario World since version 1.4.0 Stage 9 Starting with 25 capsules, the objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses (30). The only colors available in this stage are red and blue.

A stage where players can first obtain a fully charged skill meter, which lets doctors perform a special ability specific to them. Dr. Toad also gives a free Capsule+ item prior to starting this stage. This stage has red and blue viruses, along with a few exploders and brick blocks.

In the initial version of this stage, there are brick blocks and viruses along with a shell. The stage layout used in a later version of this stage is moved to stage 5 in version 1.4.0.

By clearing this stage, this area of the world map gets cleared from viruses. This stage has viruses interspersed with two shells and an exploder.

After beating stage 10, the first half of Area 1 will be cleared of viruses, leaving the other half uncleared. Moreover, additional data will be downloaded where it must finish downloading before the player can proceed with the rest of the stages. Prior to version 2.0.0, when players complete this stage, they can choose to be either Dr. Mario, Dr. Peach, or Dr. Bowser.

In the initial version of this stage, viruses are arranged in rows, with brick blocks and empty blocks in the rows between the rows with viruses. A later version of this stage is shaped like a "10".

Blue and yellow viruses are found on the two leftmost columns and two rightmost columns. Brick blocks are also found throughout the stage.

Prior to version 1.3.5, this stage has skill chargers, and in the initial version is also the first stage to introduce them. Since version 1.3.5, this stage is changed to have shells in the middle column, along with empty blocks beside each shell.
