World 5-3 is a forest level in New Super Mario Bros. Wii takes place on a few logs over poison. The level is the only level where Bramballs appear. The player needs to avoid them without falling off logs or they will land into the toxic goop.


Mario begins the level near a Bramball. A ? Block that contains a power-up can be found soon after, along with another Bramball. After a few more Bramballs and pits filled with poison, a Warp Pipe that takes Mario underground can be found. Some coins and a Roulette Block can be found through the pipe. After the pipe, some rolling logs can be found floating in the poison. After some rolling logs that have Bramballs over them, the midway point and four ? Blocks can be found.

After the midway point, two Bramballs can be found near a Pipe Cannon. The Pipe Cannon will launch Mario onto a platform, where a Warp Pipe that leads to a Coin Heaven can be found. A Red Ring and a Propeller Block can be found in the Coin Heaven. After the Pipe Cannon, some ? Blocks and another rolling log can be found. Four tall platforms can be found in the poison after the rolling log. Two quick Bramballs can then be found, along with a Warp Pipe. Through the pipe, a Bramball and the pole can be found.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: To the right of the first Green Pipe, the first Star Coin is floating high-up between two Bramballs, one of which Mario and co. should jump from to get it.
  • Star Coin 2: Not long after the midway point, the second Star Coin is floating above a platform with a Bramball, and is blocked off by two bricks. Mario and co. should use the nearby Koopa Troopa to break the bricks and open the path to the Star Coin, while avoiding the Bramball.
  • Star Coin 3: Right after the second Star Coin, there will be four tall platforms protruding from the poison, and the third Star Coin is floating in between the two middle ones, under two Donut Blocks. While avoiding the nearby Bramball, Mario and co. should stand on one of the Donut Blocks and let it fall to the Star Coin, then jump to safety before touching the poison.
