Upshroom Downshroom is a course in Fungi Mines of Super Mario Bros. Wonder. As its name suggests, it prominently features Mushroom Platforms, much of which raise up or down during the course. It is unlocked after clearing Loyal Poplin's House. This course houses two Wonder Seeds and has a difficulty of one star.


The course takes place in a forest filled with Mushroom Platforms, with the player starting on top of a set of three. To the right is a wide Mushroom Platform with a sleeping Goomba below it and three ? Blocks. After a set of pumpkins and a Gamboo stack that rises from the ground is another sleeping Goomba and two ? Blocks next to a Rotating Block, as well as a Hidden Character Block visible to Mario that contains a Drill Mushroom. The ? Block on the right releases a Wow Bud that lowers a set of blue Mushroom Platforms to help the player progress, with a shorter Gamboo stack rising from the ground afterwards. After a downhill gentle slope containing some coins is a section containing two blue Mushroom Platforms, two Wow Buds, and a Big Fire Piranha. Then there are some Gamboos including a glowing one that go under a set of red pipes including one where another Big Fire Piranha comes out of. The course follows with a Long ? Block, two short Gamboo stacks, and a wall of pumpkins that has a Wow Bud next to it that raises a blue Mushroom Platform below them. By reaching the top of the pumpkin wall, there is a hidden area that can be accessed using the Drill form with some coins and flower coins inside, as well as a Hidden Character Block visible to Toadette that contains a Drill Mushroom. After two blue Mushroom Platforms which have a Big Fire Piranha and a purple Gamboo within them is a red Mushroom Platform before a blue one that can be moved upwards to allow the player to enter a red Warp Pipe next to another sleeping Goomba.

The pipe sends the player to the Checkpoint Flag on top of a set of red Mushroom Platforms with a wide one following that features a ? Block. To the right is a section with blue Mushroom Platforms and pumpkins. The course follows with a set of blue Mushroom Platforms, as well as a red one that holds two Big Piranha Plants. A Wow Bud raises a blue Mushroom Platform below the enemies and another drops a pumpkin on them. Following are two red mushroom platforms next to each other with three Wow Buds above them that each drop a pumpkin. Then there is a downhill slope leading to a section with two Big Fire Piranhas before a set of three Mushroom Platforms and a Wow Bud that raises blue ones that help the player enter a red Warp Pipe, sending the player to a straightaway of pumpkins including one set that is shaped like stairs just before the Goal Pole.

Wonder Flower

Just after the Checkpoint Flag, there is a pumpkin that containing the course's Wonder Flower. Breaking it reveals the Wonder Flower, and touching it causes "Pumpkin Party" to begin, where enemies start dancing, Mushroom Platforms appear colorful and move rhythmically, and pumpkins appear that bear glowing faces based on Jack O'Goombas. The Big Fire Piranhas found in this section are now Big Piranha Plants. In the section before the red pipe, there are now pumpkins and moving Mushroom Platforms that lead the player to a vertically-oriented section with Trampolines as well as more pumpkins dancing enemies. After breaking a pumpkin from below, the player ends up in a room contain the Wonder Seed which moves left and right. Collecting it ends the effect and a yellow Warp Pipe appears that takes the player to the area containing the Goal Pole.

10-flower coins

  • 10-flower coin 1: Found in a sub-area that is accessed via a red pipe. It can be reached by touching the Wow Buds in the section with the Big Fire Piranha to raise the Mushroom Platforms. The sub-area contains two trampolines, a stack of three Gamboos, and this 10-flower coin which constantly moves.
  • 10-flower coin 2: Found before the red pipe to the Checkpoint Flag. It can be reached by standing on a blue Mushroom Platform as the Wow Bud moves it upwards.
  • 10-flower coin 3: Found above a floating platform after the Checkpoint Flag. It can be reached by touching a Wow Bud that raises the pumpkins and jumping in time. During the Wonder Effect, it appears after touching a Wow Bud that releases more Wow Buds after each jump involving a pumpkin.


Talking Flower quotes

  • "I wanna be tall like the mushrooms..." (found floating near the red pipe in the section with the Big Fire Piranha)
  • "Hey!" (found in a hidden area)
    • "Wasn't expecting company..."
  • "Ha, that was cool!" (found near the second 10-flower coin)
  • "Feel like you're missing something?" (found inside a pumpkin dropped by a Wow Bud)
  • "Time! To! Dance!" (found between two Big Piranha Plants during the Wonder Effect)
  • "See..." (appears after raising a Wow Bud near the last red Warp Pipe)
  • "you..." (appears with the previous Talking Flower)
  • "later!" (appears with the previous Talking Flower)
  • "So long!" (appears with the previous Talking Flower)
  • "Phew!" (found where the Wonder Seed was after the Wonder Effect ends)

During the Wonder Effect, many Talking Flowers say these quotes in a loop:

  • "Yeah!"
  • "Whoa!"
  • "Yeah!"
  • "Ooh!"
  • "All right!"
