This article refers to the location of several stages in the Super Smash Bros. series. For other uses, see Mushroom Kingdom (disambiguation).

The Mushroom Kingdom (Japanese: キノコ王国, Kinoko Ōkoku) is a primary location in the Mario universe, and is where most Mario games take place.

Location description

The Mushroom Kingdom is presided over by Princess Peach and her family, and its celebrity hero is the brave plumber Mario.

The Mushroom Kingdom, though the fictional area where almost all Mario games take place, is not the only Kingdom in the franchise; the Game Boy Advance game Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, in particular, takes place in the neighboring Beanbean Kingdom.

The Mushroom Kingdom manifests as two separate stages, one unlockable:

As stages

The Mushroom Kingdom is now the setting of three separate starter stages:

  • Mushroom Kingdom: Princess Peach's Castle: A wide stage taking place on top of the said castle, where giant Bullet Bills drive into it and explode from time to time.
  • Mushroom Kingdom: Rainbow Cruise: A unique, scrolling stage taking place on an aerial platforming and obstacle course inspired by the last world of Super Mario 64.
  • Mushroom: Kingdom: A wide stage whose visuals and audio are a direct throwback to the original Super Mario Bros.; in this regard it is the spiritual successor to the Mushroom Kingdom stage of the original Super Smash Bros., but it is designed differently having directly ripped sprites from Super Mario Bros. unlike the edited sprites used in the previous installment in the Smash series.

In addition, there is an unlockable stage named Mushroom: Kingdom II, but contrary to its name it takes place in the dream world of Subcon (the setting of Super Mario Bros. 2)

In single-player

Melee's Adventure mode has as its first stage Mushroom Kingdom Adventure, which is a lengthy platformer-inspired environment fraught with obstacles such as blocks and common enemies like the Goomba.
