W5: Fungi Mines – Super Mario Bros. Wonder Walkthrough

Complete World 5 with our Super Mario Bros. Wonder walkthrough focused on every Flower Coin, Wonder Seed, and golden flag in Fungi Mines.

Flower Coins and Wonder Seeds are the main collectibles in each level. The three 10-Flower Coins aren’t required to complete the level or unlock additional worlds, but they will add to the currency you can use on the world map. Wonder Seeds, on the other hand, are required for progression, and each level has either two or three to collect. One Wonder Seed is always found at the end of a Wonder Flower effect, and the other Wonder Seed is obtained once completing the level. Any additional Wonder Seeds are found by using a secret exit.

Additionally, each level presents you the a golden flag if you’re able to grab the very top of the goal post at the end of the level. Sometimes it’s simple, other times you may need to be creative about it. No matter which main collectible it is, we’ll cover it in our Fungi Mines walkthrough!

Fungi Mines is the fifth world in the game and is unlocked later in the game. Use the links below to jump to a specific level:

Upshroom Downshroom

Flower Coin 1 – See that Big Fire Piranha Plant? Drill underneath it and pop out to send it flying! With that guy out of the way, hit the two green glowing tulips to bring the tall mushrooms up to the red pipe in the ceiling. Enter it, then grab the Flower Coin with a good bounce off the mushroom trampolines.

Flower Coin 2 – More green tulips! With the drill power-up in hand, activate the green tulip to bring up the mushroom holding the pumpkins, but don’t destroy the orange fruit! Use it to reach the ceiling. Drill your way to the right, then activate the next two green tulips. Follow the coins to two more tulips. Activating the last one will send a slow-moving spark. Before it reaches its destination, jump to the right and wait on the blue upside-down mushroom. This will eventually rise up to where the Flower Coin is at!

Wonder Seed 1 – The glowing pumpkin is hiding the Wonder Flower! Smash it, collect the flower, and watch the Halloween vibes in action. Wonder Seed is at the end of this segment. When the mushrooms pop up, use them to your advantage for extra height!

Flower Coin 3 – During the Wonder Flower effect, touch four green tulips in a row to reveal the Flower Coin.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – Climb up the pumpkin stairs and jump off the edge.

Taily’s Toxic Pond

Flower Coin 1 – Grab a Drill Mushroom and shoot into the ceiling where the Talking Flower is at. Ride over the glowing tulip to have the Flower Coin appear.

Flower Coin 2 – Right after the first Flower Coin, swing across the Taily enemies to reach the tall mushroom on the right. Enter the warp pipe above it, then do the same Taily swinging strategy to collect the Flower Coin.

Wonder Seed 1 – A trio of Taily enemies roam above three mushroom platforms. Defeat them all to reveal a Wonder Flower… and a quiz show?? Here’s the thing. We could list the questions and answers here, but you have 90 seconds to get three questions right. Doesn’t matter how many you get wrong! So don’t think too hard and pick the answer by grabbing the corresponding Taily. You’ve got a TON of chances to get through this.

Flower Coin 3 – Before exiting the main area of the level, let one of the Taily enemies drop a spiked ball onto the flipping block below. If just one gets hit, this will allow you to enter the green pipe. In the secret area, simply run off the mushroom without dropping and you should cling to the Taily with ease.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – Use the Taily to reach the flagpole.

Light-Switch Mansion

Flower Coin 1 – As the lights show, there are invisible blocks underneath and to the left of the Flower Coin. Jump up there from the invisible blocks on the left.

Flower Coin 2 – See all the coins and blocks in the background? Get there by stunning the mimic door and entering its door. Once there, use the light blocks to illuminate the hidden platforms. If you want to skip all that, enter the door and immediately jump to the platform on the right. From there, jump to the left and you should be able to reach the Flower Coin with ease.

Flower Coin 3 – Don’t overthink this one! There is a single platform of invisible blocks circling underneath this Flower Coin. Ride it until you are in grasp of the Flower Coin!

Wonder Seed 1 – This one is required to collect! King Boo will appear and sing his heart out as you make your way through the next minute of this level’s antics. Survive and collect your Wonder Seed at the end.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – Climb up the stairs made up of invisible blocks and use them to reach the top!

Beware of the Rifts

Flower Coin 1 – Hit the two Question Blocks to reveal glowing tulips. One of them will get a Flower Coin to pop up! Run and jump to grab it, and avoid the rifts while you’re at it.

Flower Coin 2 – Grab a Koopa shell and throw it directly up at the Question Block on the ceiling. This will cause a vine to grow that can be used to access a secret area. Hit the invisible Question Block between the two brick blocks to uncover the Flower Coin!

Flower Coin 3 – Whack the same brick block until all the glowing tulips have been exhausted. Flower Coin will drop on the red pipe to your right!

Wonder Seed 1 – A Question Block lodged into a low ceiling can be hit to reveal the Wonder Flower. Once activated, start hopping around the area to collect all five Wonder Tokens. Use the massive POW blocks as many times as you need. They’ll help you stun Shadow Mario and they’ll help bounce Wonder Tokens out of their holes.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – See that suspious opening in the corner of the ceiling? Hit it to reveal a hidden glowing tulip that will spring forth three pipes.

An Uncharted Area: Wubba Ruins

Flower Coin 1 – Flat above the first Flower Coin and have the Konk above come crashing down, clearing the brick blocks.

Flower Coin 2 – There’s a red pipe in the goo! Stand above the red pipe’s entrance and have a Konk smash the goo down. This temporary open space will let you enter inside. In the secret area, take out five Wubbas that spawn from the floor and ceiling to get the Flower Coin to appear.

Wonder Seed 1 – Wonder Flower is hidden inside a Question Block below some goo. Use the Konk to smash the block, then swim through the goo to grab the Wonder Flower. As a Wubba, swim through goo with ease, and slide around floors, walls, and ceilings seamlessly. Keep moving forward and you’ll eventually slide under a long wall leading to the Wonder Seed.

Flower Coin 3 – As Wubba, ride along the ceiling until you spot a Flower Coin above. Keep moving to the right and the path will wrap around to the coin.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – Swim through the goo and jump out from the top to reach the flagpole.

Another Uncharted Area: Swaying Ruins

Flower Coin 1 – Tap the glowing tulip to have the Flower Coin appear along the wall on the right. When the right portion of the level sways up, jump and slide against the wall to collect the Flower Coin, then wall jump off to safety.

Flower Coin 2 – As the sliding platform is about to pass under the Flower Coin, make a quick jump to grab the coin, then use that momentum to quickly jump off the sliding platform and land on the next block.

Flower Coin 3 – Wait for the conjoined sliding platforms to move to the right. Use this opportunity to run into the small space on the left where the Flower Coin hides!

Wonder Seed 1 – Use the green glowing tulips to make parts of the level sway. See the lone pink door that’s inaccessible? Once the level starts to sway, stand on the sliding platform on your right and have it pass by the door. Enter once you’re able to! Inside, chase after the Wonder Flower. Grab it at the bottom, then slide and bounce your way to the Wonder Seed farther into the level.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – Ride the sliding platform over to the flagpole, then jump once it gets close enough!

A Final Uncharted Area: Poison Ruins

Flower Coin 1 – Once in the area with the rising poison, look for a glowing tulip that appears and disappears on the ceiling. Touch it to move the wall blocking off the Flower Coin.

Flower Coin 2 – You’ll see this Flower Coin on your way across the rising poison. When the Paratroopa lowers, bounce off it with a small jump to reach the coin!

Wonder Seed 1 – Before you jump onto the flagpole and “complete” the level, take a look at the single pile of goo. Ground pound into the goo to activate the hidden Wonder Flower! You’re back to being a Wubba, and you can move along the walls and ceilings once more. Bypass the flagpole by riding along the ceiling, then enter the next area by continuing up. Keep moving forward and you’ll eventually reach an area with spinning platforms. Activate all the glowing tulips on each of these platforms and the Wonder Seed is yours!

Flower Coin 3 – During the Wonder Flower effect, get to the area where passing through the glowing tulips drops blocks on top of you. Only activate the first two glowing tulips, then immediately go down to find the Flower Coin just above some poison.

Wonder Seed 2 – Reach the end of the level. Using the flagpole within the ruins does not count. You’ll have to collect the Wonder Flower to get to the true exit.

Golden Flag – For the secret exit, run across the blocks and jump to the top of the flagpole. Don’t stop as the glowing tulips cause the blocks to drop!

Grappling Vine I

Flower Coin 1 – Jump off the blue block and grapple the wall on the left to reach the first Flower Coin.

Flower Coin 2 – Swim up in the goo, then jump out and grapple the goo to the left of the Flower Coin.

Flower Coin 3 – Grapple the moving block, then wall jump off it once you are close to the Flower Coin.

Wonder Seed – Reach the end of the level.

Golden Flag – Jump and grapple the top of the flagpole! Remember, you’ll have to be about the same height of the top of the flagpole to make it happen.

Fungi Funk

Flower Coin 1-3 – Complete all four level of enemies within 90 seconds to get all three Flower Coins at the end. For the first two levels, power-ups aren’t entirely the most useful here. The Boos will need the light to be dealt with and the Taily enemies can be yanked on one after the other. For the two screaming doors on the third floor, bounce on them once, then open their door. One is on the top right, the other can be found by traveling through the background starting with the door to the right of the red pipe. But the Wubbas on the fourth level? Bubble Flower all the way. You can clear the room pretty quickly this way.

Wonder Seed – Survive and reach the end of the level.

Tumble House

Wonder Seed – Hit the switch and start collecting the Wonder Tokens! The area will rotate 90 degrees every few seconds, so don’t be alarmed if you can’t reach one of the tokens just yet.

Trottin’ Piranha Plants

Wonder Seed – Use the music notes to jump high and knock the Trottin’ Piranha Plants out of the arena. Defeat all five for the Wonder Seed.
