World 5-1 is the first level of World 5 in Super Mario Bros. and the seventeenth level overall in said game. This level introduces the Bullet Bill and Turtle Cannon enemies into the series.


The player starts in front of a row of Koopa Troopas and Little Goombas, ending at pipes with Piranha Plants and a gap between the two. After the second pipe is a row of Little Goombas and Koopa Paratroopas, after which is a block structure with a row of bricks above it, the middle of which containing a Starman. Afterward are more Little Goombas and Koopa Troopas along with the new Turtle Cannon. Beyond the row of enemies is a structure of blocks, and the gap between the bricks and the stone pillar is a Hidden Block containing a 1 up Mushroom. The player can also use the blocks as a platform to reach the Warp Pipe above, which leads to an underground area with coins, and the exit pipe will take them back above ground near where they left. Around the pipes are two Turtle Cannons and beyond those are two Koopa Paratroopas jumping down the stone stairs and floating pillar before the flagpole.

  • High above the second pipe

Level map[edit]


  • A fortress is seen instead of a castle at the beginning of the level even though the previous level takes place inside a castle. This is the case in all versions of the game, including Super Mario All-Stars.
