There is plenty of levels in Mario games that most people breeze through, but there are also levels that are very challenging. Here is the Top 10 Hardest Levels in Mario Games.

The Top Ten

1 Champion's Road - Super Mario 3D World

This level was absolute hell to complete. After over 100 attempts and a week of pain, I can say this is my greatest achievement ever.
Here's tips for those of you who haven't beaten this yet:
Section 1: This section is fairly easy compared to other sections. Just long jump for the first few platforms, then take your time to kill the Electrogoomba on the next platform. You can then easily long jump past the next section and go to Section 2.
Section 2: The easiest section in the entire level. If you're using any character besides Toad, just jump over the platforms.
Section 3: Get to max speed by running around then jump over to the series of platforms. Try not to jump on the Chargin' Chucks if you can help it.
Section 4: This is by far the hardest section of the level so far. You'll need some practice to get consistent on this section so don't expect to beat it in your first try. For the first series of platforms, build up speed and jump toward the blue blocks when the ...more

I've been playing Super Mario 3D world for so long now (for those of you that are reading this in 2018) I have collected all the stars in world 1 and world castle and I'm close to getting all stamps and stars on world 5, and world 3 so I've I keep playing I will probably get to play this level probably around next year

I played guitar before I played this level. I blistered my thumb and couldn't play this level.

This is harder than Grandmaster

3 Wing Mario over the Rainbow - Super Mario 64

This level is so hard.

You know Youtubers like Packattack and ProsafiaGaming make these levels easy so if you want to stop thinking that the levels that there playing are easy. stop watching them

4 The Perfect Run - Super Mario Galaxy 2
5 Tubular - Super Mario World

It was pretty hard. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo


6 The Pachinko Machine - Super Mario Sunshine
7 Luigi's Purple Coins (As Luigi) - Super Mario Galaxy

I'm great at purple coin hunts, especially this one

3 min. Poison water everywhere and 100 coins. D:

8 Don't Touch Anything - Super Mario Bros U

I have seen levels in Kaizo Mario that are more forgiving than this.

You can only touch five coins.You can not touch an enemy.Lakitu is bombing you and worst of all,moving platforms try to push you into the coins.You must not touch anything.Oh and there's HIDDEN COIN BLOCKS! I AM NEVER TOUCHING THIS LEVEL AGAIN!

9 World 9-7 - New Super Mario Bros. Wii

This level is so hard thank goodness it is short

I was stuck on this level for 5 years

This was a bajillion times harder that 7-purple castle.

10 World 8-3 - Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels

Lmao this is nothing compared to c-3 or even 5-3 or 6-2. Those levels are so damn annoying

I knew this was gonna be here... It's very hard as I couldn't even beat the level

The Contenders

11 The Impossible Pack - New Super Mario Bros. 2

The Title Speaks

It says it is impossible.

12 Special 8 - Crown - Super Mario 3D Land

No check points or power ups to work with but can be made easier with tannoki

13 Tick Tock Clock - Super Mario 64

Worst camera angles

14 Awesome - Super Mario World

This level is awesome.

15 Pendulum Castle - New Super Mario Bros. U

Getting all the star coins in this level is hard and you need them to get "FOLLOW THAT SHELL".

16 Purple Coins in the Rainbow Road - Super Mario Galaxy 2
17 Lava Spire Daredevil Run - Super Mario Galaxy

...And you're dead.

This is one of the hardest

18 Pit of Panga: U-Break - Super Mario Maker

They mean OFFICIAL levels, not this. - BlueSheepYT



19 World C - 3 - Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels

The Japanese version of super Mario bros 2 was considered to hard for American gamers to complete so that's why in America it's called super Mario bros the lost levels

20 Darker Side - Super Mario Odyssey

This is FRUSTRATING - benpiano800

Take all of the significant captures you have to make in this game... and test your skills for each one. You'll also have to be good at pole-swinging, fast wall jumps, triple jumps and laser dodging. Think champion's road, but with cappy.

21 Slingshot Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy

I got 111 stars but this ain't 1

This is 95/100 hard

22 Corona Mountain - Super Mario Sunshine

Don't even get me STARTED on the blue coins here... - GengarGuy

It IS mean

34 Soulcrusher-Creepsters - Super Mario Maker
35 Break My Mind-Creepsters - Mario Maker
36 Stone Cyclone - Super Mario Galaxy 2
