5-7 Grim Grotto

This gloomy cavern is so barren, there aren't even many secrets to find. There's no Yoshi or Kelly to cheer you up; just winding passages filled with swoopers, hammer bros., and rolling spike balls.

No one wants to perish in a dreadful place like this. Hurry through and don't let the setting bring you down.


5-7 Life

The stage's only 1-Up is inside its only secret section. Toward the end of the second section, a pipe juts out from the wall. It's the entrance to this chamber that seems to only contain a string of coins and a power-up. However, this invisible block is hiding at the edge of the floor.

Other SecretEdit

5-7 Secret

When you first enter the second section, a big slope leads down through a whole line of goombas. The Mario Bros. can take advantage of the slide, but you'll need a little momentum to nail all the goombas.

RMN CoinsEdit

  1. Behind a spike ball partway through the first section.
  2. Below a falling platform near the end of the first section.
  3. In the pool of water at the start of the second section.
  4. On the upper route of the water cavern.
  5. In an alcove at the end of the stage.


This stage was originally slated to be 5-6, but Isrieri insisted that it be bumped to 5-7, or possibly another world entirely. halibabica felt that the Fire Temple's goomba generators were difficult enough to justify its place as 5-7, but ultimately conceded.
