6 Go back out to the courtyard and back onto the divided path you came in on. Go left into the next room.
7 Watch out for SpikesEnlarge
In the next room, watch out for spikes that will come out of the slots between floorboards and deal damage to Mario. Move slowly to position Mario slightly in front of each slot, so you can make the spikes come out without taking damage.
8 Drop down closest to the screenEnlarge
Continue to the door on the left side and pull the rope to make a ladder descend. Walk and jump across the rafters and go down to the very south-center of the room, then fall onto the black floor mat and go down into the next room.

10 RuuuuuuunEnlarge
The wall will start closing in on either side, so run south to avoid being crushed. You'll fall onto a slide into the next room.
11 Get your Ninja rankingEnlarge

New Enemies in this Part


Ninjis are tough foes who can use a Clone Tower attack to deal several hits even when only one remains. Try to get a perfect lineup and use your strongest Boots to take all of them out at once, as even leaving one can cause Mario to take a big hit.

Do not use a Hammer on Ninjis! If you use a Hammer, even outside the battle when going for a first strike, the Ninji will disappear and reappear above Mario for a surprise attack. Line up the Ninjis with a Jump attack in mind!
