8 Hardest Mario Levels

Hey, there! this post is gonna be about the hardest levels in Mario games. (in my experience) in order of difficulty.

8 – Tubular (Super Mario World)

This level is the 2nd level in the Special World, and it’s a crazy one! You need to use the P-Balloon to float across the map, avoid the Chargin’ Chucks, and not get hit by the Volcano Lotus’ fireballs. But we’re just getting started…

7 – 9-7 (New Super Mario Bros. Wii

In this crazy level, the whole floor is Munchers! They’re initially frozen in ice but the Venus Fire Traps shoot fire and melt them. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s Prickly Goombas that jump out of their spiked balls when hit with fire. And near the end of the level there’s Fire Bros. that throw fireballs that need to melt the ice to get the Star Coin! What in the world, dude?!

6 – World *-1: Rainbow Run (Super Mario 3D World)

This is the first bonus level in the game. There’s rolling RGB rainbows, Spiny Skipsqueaks, Ring Burners, Trapeze Bars, even a hidden Link sprite! But unfortunately, there’s far too much going on here. The rolling platforms are really hard to stay on, the Spiny Skipsqueaks are really annoying, and the Para-Biddybuds are also pretty stupid to deal with. This level has less challenge and more annoyances if anything.

5 – Bubble Blast Galaxy: The Electric Labyrinth (Super Mario Galaxy)

When Motion Controls and Bad Level Design collide, Bubble Blast Galaxy: The Electric Labyrinth is born! This is one of the hardest levels in Mario history, and there’s quite a few more, so stick around. Armed with Electric Fences, Bullet Bills, and *stutter* Star Chips… Expect to see more Galaxy levels on this list.

4 – Ghostly Galaxy: Purple Coins in the Bone Pen (Super Mario Galaxy)

The Purple Coin missions in this game are annoying, but Purple Coins in the Bone Pen is brutal! This is also the fault of motion controls, and the pull stars are incredibly annoying to use. Good luck getting this one if you have a small CRT like me…

3 – Rainbow Ride: 100 Coins (Super Mario 64)

There’s 2 ways to get this Star: Either you can spend lots of time getting the coins along the the flying carpet’s path, or you can, you know just wall jump 10-11 time in a row to get 6 blue coins. I elaborate more on why this is so difficult in my post “My Super Mario 64 120 Star NIGHTMARE” (https://thefinkedfilms.com/2020/08/06/my-super-mario-64-120-star-nightmare/)

2 – Darker Side: Long Journey’s End (Super Mario Odyssey)

This is such a stupid level. There’s pretty much only artificial challenge and no real challenge, you have to make stupidly precise jumps on a short time frame, leap from fork to fork, and so much more stupidity…

…And the #1 hardest level is…

1 – Grandmaster Galaxy: The Perfect Run (Super Mario Galaxy 2)

The only reason this one is higher on this list is purely because you have only 1 health point for the whole time, meaning you literally need to do a perfect run of this level! I don’t know what the designers were thinking when they made this level but it’s also stupidly hard. There aren’t any checkpoint either so that adds to the pain, and there’s some Fire Bros. out to ruin your day! What a pain in the rear-end.

See you tomorrow on thefinkedfimsdotcom!

I really like blogs! You should make one too. Wordpress (which is what I use) has a free plan so you don't have to pay, although there's of course subscription plans to "enhance" your experience
