Iggy the Demented is the fourth castle in Brutal Mario. It is also the last level of World 4. Iggy's poorly lit castle, Mario will have to ask for Squawks' assistance to traverse this stage.

After finishing this level, a pathway to the Plateau will open.

Level overview[]

As the stage opens, you will find yourself in a dark room with Squawks aiding you, holding a flashlight. Head right, evading the enemies and hopping on platforms. If you got the Red Switch Palace earlier in the world, a few pits will be covered up, making it easier to get through the first area.

Once you come to a wire mesh, use it to climb upwards, then use the next one to climb left. Follow the set path, but do be careful to hold right on the two falling gray platforms if you do not have the Red Switch pressed.

You'll soon come to a small room where Squawks decides he has had it with Mario using him, and thus attacks him. After you defeat Squawks, head right to collect the midpoint and enter the door to move on to the next section.

The next section is an autoscroller. Simply evade the Magikoopa's attacks and the enemies, being careful to not fall in the lava. Soon enough, you'll reach the dragon coins and the boss door leading to Iggy.

Orb Location[]

When the autoscrolling section loads, you can see a yellow door behind the border in the left half of the screen. Go in to find the orb.

Dragon Coins[]

They're all found next to the boss door.

Asset Sources[]


In the dark room, the level uses the castle and fortress foreground from Super Mario World.

During the autoscroll segment and in the orb room, the castle foreground from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is used.

In Iggy's room, the Crystal Snail foreground from Mega Man X2 and the ice background from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest are used.

Squawks' sprite is from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest while Iggy's is an edit of his Super Mario World sprites.


Dr. Wily Stage 2 from Mega Man 3 plays throughout the stage.

The battle with Squawks uses the boss theme from Super Mario World for the time being as the ASM code hasn't been altered to take the custom music into notice.

The orb room uses Poem for Everyone's Souls from Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3.

Lastly, the battle with Iggy uses Seven Heroes Battle from Romancing SaGa 2.
