How to Complete Secrets of Shova Mansion in Super Mario Bros Wonder

To get 100% completion on Secrets of Shova Mansion, ensure you’ve gathered three 10-flower coins, collected three wonder seeds, and achieved a perfect exit on your final pole grab. Since there are three wonder seeds instead of two, you’ll need to complete the course twice to go through each exit.

Flower Coin 1

You’ll find the first flower coin near the beginning of the level in a room with various enemies and a movable block. Navigate through this area, carefully bypassing the obstacles, and push the wall at the far-right side. Moving the wall far enough will reveal the 10-flower coin.

Wonder Flower and Seed 1

As you advance through the level, you’ll encounter two sets of three pink blocks. Push the top blocks to create a bridge, revealing a concealed doorway. Step into the new area to gain the wonder flower and its associated course. To get the wonder seed at the end, ensure you stay ahead of the advancing Shovas by pushing the walls to your right.

Flower Coin 2

Returning to the main course, you’ll discover the second coin just beyond the bridge you created to find the wonder flower. It’s positioned on a platform alongside a Shova and requires careful navigation to reach. Use the right-side wall to push yourself up, carefully avoiding falling into the pit below. Grab the coin and come back down. While a specific badge isn’t necessary for this jump, using Parachute Hat or Safety Bounce can significantly help navigate this section.

Flower Coin 3

Immediately after passing through the door by the second coin, take a left and push the block there. This will uncover a hidden chamber with coins and the final 10-flower coin.

Wonder Seed 2

With that done, it’s time to get the second wonder seed. Head right until you spot a damaged door resting on two different blocks. Avoid the Hotheads, move the blocks together, and head through the door. The exit is a short distance ahead, past the pink blocks.

Wonder Seed 3

To find the secret exit, replay the course, progressing until you reach the last section. While heading toward the main exit, you’ll encounter a Shova, bricks, and a movable block. Eliminate the enemy and break the bricks to find a glowing space. Bring the block here to reveal a golden pipe. Enter this pipe to bypass the course, eventually bringing you to the second exit and last wonder seed.

If you haven’t already gotten a “Wonderful” pole grab, now’s your chance to get one. Getting this achievement with the three wonder seeds and 10-flower coins will unlock a new area, one of the few entrances to the Special World.
