Creator: Isrieri BGM: "Overworld BGM" from Super Mario World Secret BGM: "Underground BGM" from Super Mario World Main Power-Up: Fire Flower Yoshis: 2 1-Ups: 1 Kelly: Yes
This SMW-style stage was originally slated for 1-1, but was bumped to 2-1 due to design interpretations and developer stubbornness. Some aspects of the level are more devious than a quick glance might suggest, so stay alert as you explore!
Kelly appears partway through to warn you of RMN World's tougher brand of Chargin' Chucks. You'll find Yoshi along the way, too, but you'll have to ditch your ride to find some of the stage's many secrets.
The level's only 1-Up is an invisible block near the first orange pipe. It's just close enough to the cliffs that it might escape you, but at least the block won't cause you to miss a jump.
What this stage lacks in 1-Ups, it makes up for in secrets. The first is in the green pipe just after the only extra life. The underground path is a little treacherous, but there's an RMN coin down there, and it puts you right before the checkpoint.
If you take the underground path, you could miss out on this important vine block. Hitting it gets you to a stash in the clouds, but also exposes the upper portion of the level, where are secrets can be found. Without hitting the block, you'd never know what you were missing up above!
On the platform below the end of the vine secret's cloud trail, a POW block can be found inside a ? block. Carry it to the checkpoint and use it to knock down the bunch of coins hanging in the air.
Beyond the checkpoint, the cliff top is concealed if you haven't hit the vine block previously mentioned. There's a feather in a block up there, and a runway long enough to let you fly to the right. There's a trail of coins in the sky that can carry you all the way to the end of the stage if your flight skills are up to scratch.
Another feather can be found in a hidden block a short distance away from Kelly. Just remember that tail whipping is useless against Chucks.
The second underground secret is immediately after the hidden feather. Collecting the RMN coin inside spawns a Chuck on the entrance pipe. Don't let him catch you off guard!
