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

The Mushroom Kingdom (キノコ王国, Mushroom Kingdom) is the main location in the Mario universe and the setting of most Mario games.

Location description[edit]

The kingdom with many locations and enemies in New Super Mario Bros. U.

The Mushroom Kingdom is presided over by Princess Peach and her family, and its celebrity hero is the brave hero, 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 game Super Mario Land takes place in a country called Sarasaland which is home to 4 separate kingdoms and Super Mario Odyssey includes 15 separate kingdoms, including the Mushroom Kingdom.

In Super Smash Bros.[edit]


The Mushroom Kingdom manifests as two separate stages, one starter, and one unlockable.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]


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 Banzai 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. The stage also appears in Brawl.
  • 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 it instead takes place in the dream world of Subcon (the setting of Super Mario Bros. 2).


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

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]


Rainbow Cruise also returns as a Past Stage.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]


  • 3D Land: A side-scrolling stage based off of Super Mario 3D Land as a whole.
  • Golden Plains: A stage based off of three levels of World 1 in New Super Mario Bros. 2.
  • Mario Circuit: A stage based off of the new Mario Circuit that appears in Mario Kart 8.
  • Mushroom Kingdom U: A transforming stage based off of the worlds of New Super Mario Bros. U.

Peach's Castle, Mario Circuit (SSBB), Mushroomy Kingdom, and Luigi's Mansion also return as Past Stages.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]


Peach's Castle, Mushroom Kingdom (SSB), Princess Peach's Castle, Rainbow Cruise, Mushroomy Kingdom, Luigi's Mansion, 3D Land, Golden Plains, Mario Circuit (SSB4), and Mushroom Kingdom U all return as Past Stages. Mario Circuit (SSBB) also returns under the name Figure-8 Circuit. Mushroom Kingdom II, which is not set in the Mushroom Kingdom, returns as well.
