World 5-4 is the fourth level of World 5 in Super Mario 3D Land. The level takes place in an underground maze-like area. The only enemies in the level are Morty Moles, Monty Moles, and a Rocky Wrench, being the only level to only consist of Monty Mole species, let alone the only level of the game where Monty Moles appear.


Tanooki Mario jumping across multiple Morty Moles

Mario falls in a hole, and is spotlighted. Going to the right, crossing two Morty Moles, Mario will find a Monty Mole. Ahead, Mario will enter in a maze with different paths, leading to items. The below path takes him to a place with more Morty Moles. Going up, Mario can break Brick Blocks and, going down, touch a Checkpoint Flag. In front of it, a hole with many coins is seen. When Mario falls on this hollow, he goes to a wet place with three Monty Moles, a rectangular ? Block and a shallow pond with wooden pipes and a Warp Pipe guarded by a Rocky Wrench. This pipe leads to a room with a + Clock, many coins and an item. After the pond, Mario must go in a narrow hollow with five Monty Moles and five Morty Moles. He will reach on a room with five Warp Pipes, four of them lead to another one. The second one takes the plumber to an outdoors area with a Morty Mole and the Goal Pole.

Star Medals[edit]

  • Star Medal 1: Shortly after entering the level, the player will encounter a Monty Mole. After defeating the mole, the player should jump around trying to hit an invisible block, which will serve as a platform to reach the first medal.
  • Star Medal 2: The player should encounter another Monty Mole shortly after the first medal. The pest should be disposed of quickly. Once it has been defeated, the player must wall jump to reach a small opening where the Star Medal lies.
  • Star Medal 3: After passing the checkpoint, the player should fall down the hole. They should then come across three Morty Moles walking along a path. After defeating or avoiding these large moles, the player should roll under another small opening, coming upon yet another Morty Mole. Dropping down will make the player land on a small ledge, where the third medal lies beyond the small opening.
