Rainbow Run is the first level of World Star of the game Super Mario 3D World.


The main features of this level is running across platforms that are in the color of a rainbow. It may be based off of Rainbow Road from the Mario Kart series. In the background of this level, the music playing happens to be a remix of the World 1-1 ground theme from the first game.

Green Stars

  • Green Star 1: The first Green Star can be found by going through a Warp Pipe near spinning rainbow platforms. The player must use the Super Bell in order to get up there. After getting through the Warp Pipe, the player must navigate the two green balls to their switches to get the Green Star.
  • Green Star 2: A Fire Flower is needed to get this next Green Star. After riding Plessie, there is an area with two unlit torches. After the player lights them using the fire form, a Cloud Cannon appears and will shoot them to the next area. The player must then run across all of the platforms in order to reveal the Green Star.
  • Green Star 3: After the Checkpoint Flag, the player must hop through the Green Star Ring and collect all eight of the Green Star Coins to make the Green Star appear.

The stamp can be found during the area while riding Plessie. It's to the far right near some coins.
