Top 10 Hardest Levels In the New Super Mario Bros. Series

TheYoshiOverlord
Keep in mind NSMBW means "New Super Mario Bros. Wii," while NSMBU means "New Super Mario Bros. U," and NSLU means "New Super Luigi U."

The Top TenXW

1World 9-7 (NSMBW)

Everyone can agree this is insanely hard. Ice, Munchers, Venus Fire Traps, Fire Bros, it all screams "HELL." - TheYoshiOverlord

2Pendulum Castle (NSMBU)

By far the hardest in NSMBU. The Ball and Chain thingies, Donut Lifts, and the Bony Beetles. And you need the Star Coins for "Follow That Shell! " which is the easiest level in the game. - TheYoshiOverlord

3Impossible Pendulums (NSLU)

Basically, a harder Pendulum Castle, but it is slightly easier since it is short. - TheYoshiOverlord

4Lakitu! Lakitu! Lakitu! (NSMBU)

Three Lakitus raining down hell, sliding blocks that try to squish you or push you off... This is the 2nd hardest NSMBU level. - TheYoshiOverlord

5Meteor Moat (NSMBU)

It starts off at a medium difficulty. Then, you get to the part with the moving platforms that will often be submerged in the lava, with little safe ground, and meteors falling on you. - TheYoshiOverlord

I think that the secret exit is hard because you have to use your acorn suit while you have to watch out for the meteors. You can also press the P button and have to run swiftly.

6Dancing Blocks, Poison Swamp (NSLU)

I think Dancing Blocks, Poison Swamp is hard because I have died hundreds of times. Also, the goal of the level is to jump on the blocks when they appear.

It's actually easy if you find the pattern, but it's tough if you don't have the Super Acorn. - TheYoshiOverlord

7Fire Bar Sprint (NSLU)

It starts off easy with the slow Firebars, but when you get to the faster ones, you better hope you have at least a Mushroom. - TheYoshiOverlord

8Sumo Bro Bridge (NSLU)V1 Comment
9Iggy's Swinging Chains Castle (NSLU)

Yet another Luigi U level. The lava waves complicate things, and I have a hard time with chains :P - TheYoshiOverlord

10Soda Jungle 2 (NSLU)

It's so hard its on the list twice!
