Best Super Mario Odyssey Kingdoms

WARNING! If you do not want spoilers, then please don't proceed at your own risk.

The Top Ten

1 Metro Kingdom

Gotta be my favorite kingdom! I can go on skyscrapers, visit Pauline, and the Pualine concert is huge nostalgia to the first Donkey Kong game! This Kingdom is the best!

This is pretty much the best kingdom in my opinion as well because it was featured in many cutscenes.

It is this and the mushroom kingdom that make this game good

It's nice to see Mario and Pauline get back together.

2 Sand Kingdom

Easily my favorite Kingdom in the entire game! I normally prefer snow levels over desert ones in Mario games, but this one was different. It's got a beautifully colored town, an inverted pyramid, some awesome ruins, some underground ice caves, and much more! It is also home to my new 2nd favorite Mario character, those Tostarenan skeletons! My personal favorites after this one are: #2 Bowser's Kingdom (I especially love the Mechabrood boss battle), #3 Ruined Kingdom, #4 Cap Kingdom, and #5 Mushroom Kingdom! I still love the Mushroom Kingdom best in the world of Mario in general, but in this game, not so much.

This one is by far the best! It is just HUGE! By far the biggest kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. This is the only true open world kingdom.

This is defintly my second favourite! It's so good it's actually interesting!

Sand looks nice

3 Luncheon Kingdom

It looks delicious! I actually want to taste the Stupendous Stew.

I wonder how the stupendous stew tastes.

I actually like the theme of this kingdom, and the people are forks! 😃

4 Wooded Kingdom

This was such a neat idea for a kingdom. The mixture of the nature and mechanical parts of the kingdom were amazing. Most of the moons were fun to get, and it was pretty fun to just run around in. But the music, OH MY GOSH the music. This was by far my favorite in the game and one of my favorite Super Mario tunes of all time! The watering cans were so analytical that they were actually pretty funny. I will always remember this kingdom! Thanks Nintendo.

Easily my favorite kingdom in the game. The atmosphere is amazing and the music is outstanding. It's linear, but not too much. Also, I like forests, so it's a good thing for me

At first I liked mushroom as it’s so peaceful, but that’s not what Mario is about.
THIS is what Mario is all about. Too me, metro kingdom was dense but to small. Sand was big but not dense enough. This kingdom strikes a great blend and has lots of layers to it. Not to mention the music is the best in the game (minus robobrood battle)

Wooded kingdom is the best

5 Seaside Kingdom

Better than Lake Kingdom in my opinion.

The best of the water levels!

6 Mushroom Kingdom

It's the best bonus world

I couldn’t help but tear up even though I never played Mario 64.

Mushroom kingdom is loaded with fun challenges like the secret 2d treasure and boss rematches. it also is nostalgia packed fun. mushroom kingdom rules.

7 Cascade Kingdom

I think Cascade is a great kingdom. It is visually amazing and has the best theme in my opinion. It is a bit small, but is still pleasing in other ways. The are more than enough moons that would take someone a while to get, and the Madame Broodal boss battle was good. Overall, a great kingdom, but there are better.

Classic! I will never forget the moment I stepped out of the Odyssey and out to the Cascade Kingdom for the first time!

Well you come off of the telephone wire and not the Odyssey but I get the point

I will never forget the moment I stepped off the Oddysey and into the Cascade Kingdom

The music is great

8 Snow Kingdom

Snow Kingdom is usually overlooked, but if you look into it properly it's actually a really good kingdom.
Here is a list of pros about snow kingdom:
- The area is large and there is lots to explore
- The aesthetic of Shiveria is really nice
- Each tunnel (where you collect the moons to open the barriers) is an inventive and interesting mini-level
- Outside Shiveria you can swim but without getting stuck in different areas (cough cough lake kingdom)
- The racing mini-game is really fun and you can even continue to play it postgame
- There may not be many captures, but the ones there are, are interesting and fun e.g. ty-foos and you can even play as the residents of the kingdom which is something you can't do in other kingdoms
- And finally the residents of Shiveria (shiverians) are EXTREMELY ADORABLE! These sweet chubby seal-penguin things are just amazing (you can even play as one).
- One more thing, I find that the shiverians mourning the loss of cake ...more

This is the best kingdom by far! I absolutely LOVE the Shiverians and the race is really fun. I think it could be bigger but what’s there is great. I really enjoyed hunting for the power moons too. This should be higher on the list

So sad, the smash ball doesn't work. I held down b for my smash move to be activated, but that button doesn't work! 111! So angry!

Worst main kingdom honestly

9 Lake Kingdom

The most enchanting kingdom in the game. It really makes me want to go swimming.

Seaside is a bit better though

10 Cap Kingdom

Awesome music and atmosphere.

Great tutorial kingdom

The Contenders

11 Bowser's Kingdom

Love the creativity in this one

I like the Japanese theme

12 Lost Kingdom

This location is so underrated! I'd go as far as saying it's the absolute best one in the entire game, seeing as how exotic and unique it is! The music is nostalgia overload!

Seriously? Number 11? Give me a break. How could this be worse than the cap kingdom? This has by far the best puzzles out of all the kingdoms. The cap kingdom doesn't have anything that the other kingdoms don't have. All it is is just a tutorial kingdom. The lost kingdom is amazing. Everything about it is perfect, from the music to the atmosphere. Also it's not way too long or big like the Sand Kingdom, because let's be real, the Sand Kingdom sucks.

This kingdom is definitely the most fun, the only problem is how short it is. Most kingdoms offer much more play time, but this kingdom is definitely the most fun to play.

This kingdom is so incredibly good. It gives you an incredible feeling of exploration.

13 Darker Side

You get to show all of your skills! Could it get any better?

Great final level

14 Moon Kingdom
15 Ruined Kingdom
16 Dark Side

Eh its ok but its really just empty rooms with bosses

17 Cloud Kingdom

Not a popular option, but this is the best. It’s so beautiful, and you get to fight Bowser! Also has the best 8-Bit section in the game.

Decent overall
