Fear of Homing Bills is the first level of World 5. A grassland level, where Mario regains the ability to use the Leaf Shield to ward off Homing Bills.

Level overview[]

The stage begins with two Bullet Bill shooters, followed by a red glowing Homing Bill dashing towards Mario. Evade the Homing Bill, and proceed to the right, avoiding all Bills. You'll soon come to a donut block section, so be cautious while in it.

Later, the cannons will start firing Homing Bills as well, so hurry to the right. You'll soon find a message box containing a message from Dr. Light, warning you about the Leaf Shield.

Press R to equip it, and just proceed through the Donut Block segment to the right as Mario is basically invincible with it on. The goal is just a few screens away.
