World 8 is a cosmic-themed world in Dr. Mario World. It is inspired by Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2, featuring elements from these games such as the Comet Observatory and planets from the Good Egg, Yoshi Star and Spin-Dig Galaxies. The first area is available as of 1 AM PT on Oct. 4[1], while the second area, challenge stages and special stage are available as of 5 PM PT on Oct. 17[2].

When the areas are cleared, Lumas of different colors appear, including yellow, blue, green, and red, along with Toads in astronaut suits, Star Bunnies and Octoombas. The viruses featured in the regular stages are red, green and light-blue.

Area 1[edit]

Image Stage Overview
DrMarioWorld-Stage281.png Stage 281 This stage introduces Keys, which float to the top of the stage until it collides with an object, and will not disappear until it comes into contact with a door. The objective of this stage is to unlock all doors. Hidden viruses are found in the third and fourth rows of Brick Blocks.

Following that are another group of viruses, and after that are colorful crates among Brick Blocks. Another group of viruses appear after that, and later on are exploders surrounded by Brick Blocks and crates. The topmost line contains more viruses.

Challenge stages[edit]

Image Stage Overview
DrMarioWorld-Stage8A.png Stage 8A Within an 85 second time limit, players need to eliminate all viruses. This stage consists of dust viruses on the two leftmost and two rightmost columns. Additionally, eight of each color of half-frozen viruses are found, with the green ones located on the corners, while the light-blue and pink ones are found in the middle column. Blocking the pink and light-blue viruses are light-blue and pink crates respectively.
DrMarioWorld-Stage8B.png Stage 8B Within an 80 second time limit, players need to eliminate all viruses, destroy all Brick Blocks and collect all the Virus Coins. Floatie Viruses are found in this stage, and some Brick Blocks are half-frozen. There are only two colors (pink and light-blue) of viruses and capsules in this stage.
DrMarioWorld-Stage8C.png Stage 8C Within a 85 second time limit, players need to eliminate all viruses and collect all pink coins from Brick Blocks. The viruses are patterned after a dollar symbol, with the viruses forming an "S" while the Brick Blocks form two vertical lines being crossed by the "S". The viruses require the yellow Lock Block to unlock the yellow cages. Players earn 1000 coins and a Staff Ticket (3 Hearts prior to version 1.2.0) if they complete this stage.

Prior to version 1.2.0, the virus icon showed only the yellow virus, which supposedly means that they are only needed to be eliminated. This is an oversight since there are 20 viruses altogether, and eliminating the non-yellow viruses count towards the total.

Special Stage[edit]

Image Stage Overview
DrMarioWorld-SpecialStage8.png Special Stage This objective of this stage is to eliminate all viruses and unlock all doors. There are three parts in this stage, and each part consists of viruses on each column obstructing the key from reaching the door. This stage will scroll for one line each time enough objects are cleared, and will stop after 12 lines are introduced. Completing this stage awards the player 1000 coins, and as of Version 1.2.0, Dr. Luma is also awarded.

    • Blue: "It appears that new stages have been added once again! The structure seated among them is known as the Comet Observatory, and it's used for travel from galaxy to galaxy. Such a shame it can't be used to escape these pesky doctors!"[2]
