World 5-4 is the fourth level of World 5 in Super Mario Bros. and its remakes Super Mario All-Stars and Super Mario Bros. Deluxe.


This castle shares a similar layout with World 2-4, but this time, there are additional Fire-Bars and Podoboos.

SMB World 5-4 NES 2

Three Podoboos and a Fire-Bar.

The player begins at the top of some stairs leading to a lava pit that has Podoboos leaping out. Above the lava pit are platforms; the center one has the only ? Block in the level placed above it, and it holds a power-up. The platform also features a long Fire-Bar that is able to stretch to the other surrounding platforms. Following this lava are two paths lined with regular size Fire-Bars. The bottom path has more Fire-Bars than the top. Further on are two vertically moving lifts that move in opposite directions to each other, and there are Fire-Bars on both sides.

The player will encounter some gaps and Podoboos ahead, before approaching the fake Bowser, which breathes fire towards the player as they cross these gaps.
