Super Mario World Cheats Hints Codes and FAQs for SNES

Earn lives the easy way, mega 1-UPS, hidden keys and unlimited lives.


Secret Mega 1-Ups Vanilla Secret Stage 2

Head to the Gray P-Switch from the second block by those Spinys, and take it back to the Midway Gate. Stomp on it, and run to the left. All those Winged Koopa Troopas from the beginning become Gray Coins! Getting over 50 extra lives at once in this level is not uncommon. This all depends on the timing and there is no set pattern.

Earn Eight Lives the Easy Way

When you get 100 stars total from breaking the tape at the Goalposts, you'll enter a bonus game. Look at the item that's in the middle, and keep pressing Start to see where it shows up in the other blocks. Then go to that spot, and when the blocks come directly above you jump. You'll get the item you want every time, and eight 1-Ups every game! This will take some practice and at times you may miss the jump. The best way is to time the jump and it should work every time.

Mucho 1-Ups

For every enemy you stomp without touching the ground you'll earn more and more points, and eventually 1-Ups. The score for each enemy stomped will be as follows 100, 200, 400, 800, 1000, 2000, 4000, 8000, then 1-Ups for each enemy thereafter. “Please Note” Fences and vines don't count as ground use this knowledge to rack up some insane point combos! Also this trick is similar when you kill enemies with a Shell, from invincibility, or when you go through Goalposts, the score for each enemy increases the same way. But when you activate a Gray P-Switch, Gray Coins collected will increase up to 8000 points, then a 1-Up, a 2-Up, and 3-Ups for any more you get. This again will take some practice as far as timing and how to get the most pints and extra lives.

Chocolate Secret hidden Key explained

In Chocolate Island 2 get to the end of the first two screens quick enough and you will get access to an area were there is a key. This has to be done quickly and if you do not see the key at the end just retry do not forget to touch the actual key itself!

How to Enter the Special World

In Star World 5 there is a key hidden towards the end of the level. You must have flying power to reach it. If you have found all four switches then the key will be much easier to get to. After you get to an area where there are 4 or 5 upside down pipes kill all of the enemies and fly off of the ground to the left. Go straight up there should be a small hole that you can fly through the key is just to the right of the hole. This again takes a little luck and some practice but once you see the hole the first time you should be able to get it every time.

Unlimited Lives with the help of Yoshi

Go to the "Top Secret" level. Then, get the Yoshi from the block in the middle. Then, leave the stage. Simply keep going in and out of the stage. You just need to hit the middle block every time. A 1-Up will keep coming out of it. Please not the most you can get is 999 lives but it will take time to reach this amount.

How to hear the Original Mario Bros. Song

Once you enter the "Special Zone" Just stand and wait about five minutes and listen to the music. It should start playing variations of the original Mario Bros. song. At times this may take three minutes and other times it will take the full five minutes before you hear the music change.
