World 2-5 is the fifth main level and the seventh level overall of Desert Land in Super Mario Bros. 3. It is accessed by completing World 2-Desert and its own completion will open the way to World 2-Pyramid. Additionally, this level introduces Chain Chomps.


The player starts on a plain with several Wood Blocks and a Chain Chomp, and in one of the two ? Blocks nearby is a power-up. Past the stacked Semisolid Platforms is another Chain Chomp and a Koopa Troopa walking along a row of Brick Blocks, underneath of which is a Wood Block the player can bump to get a power-up. Across a pit are more Semisolid Platforms with Goombas and another Chain Chomp. In the area afterward with an enclosed space with Brick Blocks at the bottom; the player can kick a Koopa's shell into the narrow area to create a Vine that leads to a secret room with coins and a Switch Block, the exit pipe of which will drop the player into a floating Semi Solid Platform area where a power-up can be collected. Afterward is the goal with a Chain Chomp underneath it.

In the NES version, this level uses a palette where green is replaced by light brown; the stem of the Fire Flower in the goal (while it is flashing before Mario collects the card) is affected.
