World 4-2 is the second course of World 4 in Super Mario 3D Land. The level takes place underground and features several Goomba Towers and Inky Piranha Plants. The level also contains a hidden Warp Zone that takes Mario to World 5.


World 4-2

Mario will start in an area with low and high platforms, that come in yellow and blue colored variations. There is a Goomba Tower and several Inky Piranha Plants. To the far left side, Mario will find a hole where he can enter. There are two ? Blocks (one contains a single coin and the other, a Fire Flower) and a ! Block to create yellow blocks to reach two bouncy platforms, that lead to a small area with another ! Block to get to a smaller place, where Mario can find another Inky Piranha Plant and a ! Block. The yellow blocks lead to a bigger room, with a ! Block, another Goomba Tower, and a rectangular ? Block containing two coins and a Fire Flower. Mario can use another Mushroom Trampoline to reach a hole in the ceiling, where there are another Goomba Tower, another Inky Piranha Plant, and another ! Block. In a vertical room to the left, Mario can use Mushroom Trampolines to collect coins and reach a Warp Pipe that leads to the final part. In the last area, which is outdoors, Mario can use a final ! Block to create yellow blocks that go toward the Goal Pole.

Star Medals[edit]

  • Star Medal 1: Above the first Inky Piranha Plant, a Star Medal is hidden by the ceiling above it. Mario can collect it by jumping.
  • Star Medal 2: Near the third Goomba Tower, there is a small gap in the wall. Mario must crouch walk into it, dropping down to an area side which contains a Star Medal.
  • Star Medal 3: Mario must create yellow blocks with the second-to-last ! Block. Then, he can wall jump between them and the wall to reach the Star Medal.

Warp Zone[edit]


Near the end of the level, Mario must bounce higher on the third bouncy platform, then wall jump to reach a higher area which leads to an orange pipe. Entering it will warp Mario to World 5. As with World 1-2, this warp is a reference to World 4-2 of Super Mario Bros.
