World 2-5 is the fifth normal level of World 2 in New Super Mario Bros. 2. It is a level covered with sandy blocks and Chain Chomps tied to posts that can either help or hinder Mario.


Mario begins on a platform. An orange platform covers the desert floor below which has a Chain Chomp. Several ? Blocks and Brick Blocks can be found, one of them releasing a Super Leaf. Another Chain Chomp can be found on a ledge further down the level. Another Chain Chomp can be found beside several Brick Blocks. Mario then should make his way up and to the right. Another long orange platform can be found over a pool of quicksand with a Chain Chomp on it. Several more ? Blocks and Brick Blocks can be found, followed by a Chain Chomp on a stone platform. This is followed by the checkpoint. Mario can use a Super Leaf to reach a ledge with a Boomerang Bro and three Brick Blocks, with the first containing a coin, the second containing a 1-Up Mushroom and the third being turned into a Gold Block. Mario then reaches an area with stacks of yellow blocks with several Chain Chomps. After that area, more orange platforms follow, along with a Boomerang Bro. This is followed by another orange platform over two Chain Chomps with a Red Ring. Finally, another stack of yellow platforms can be found with a Boomerang Bro, followed by the Goal Pole.


Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The third Chain Chomp is guarding this Star Coin. The player can ground pound its stake when he is facing towards the Brick Block wall. The Chain Chomp will then create a path through the blocks to the Star Coin. Alternatively, the player can use Raccoon Mario's tail or Gold Mario's fireball to break through the Brick Blocks.
  • Star Coin 2: Just before the checkpoint, when Mario reaches the area with the long orange platform, the player should see a Chain Chomp on a stone platform and also a red Warp Pipe which seems inaccessible. The player needs to ground pound the Chain Chomp's stake three times or use Gold Mario's fireball to defeat it (that is, until it is released) and the platform will automatically lower, allowing access to the Warp Pipe. The pipe leads to an underground area with two Chain Chomps, a ? Block containing a Super Leaf and the Star Coin. If the brick blocks are destroyed, he can Dash-Jump.
  • Star Coin 3: After the checkpoint, there is a stack of yellow platforms. The player has to make his way directly downwards to the Star Coin which is guarded by another Chain Chomp.
