World 5-CastleCastleIcon SM3DW.png is the sixth and final level of World 5 in Super Mario 3D Land, and the second castle to appear in the game. A Fake Bowser is once again faced as a boss. 50 Star Medals are required to access this level.


In the start of the level, Mario sees two Brick Blocks and going up on a elevated floor, he faces a Dry Bones. Near this place, he must go up on moving sinking platforms under a swinging spiked cylinder and a Baddie Box. A cement area is found, where Mario encounters Brick Blocks, a Draglet and three Thwomps. Going to the far right, Mario must ride wire moving rotating platforms, under another Baddie Box and a Red Ring. Jumping to a stone area, he sees three Lava Bubbles, a Checkpoint Flag and a pair of Binoculars. On the left side, there are more moving platforms and Thwomps. Soon after, a stationary ground with another Draglet and a Hammer Bro is there. After crossing rising boards and Lava Bubbles, the fake Bowser battle starts. The corridor is composed of moving platforms, cement floor and a bridges. After Mario hits the switch, he saves the two Toads (Green and Yellow), and finally the fake Bowser is revealed to be a Magikoopa. He must go in a warping block to reach on the top of a tower, where a + Clock and the Goal Pole are standing.
