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 11. Players earn their first assistant, the Goomba, by Stage 20, as well as unlocking versus mode. 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.
