A World of Dreams
Sub-Con is the setting of Super Mario Bros 2
. It was discovered when Mario
, and Toad
were out on a picnic and found a magical door in a cave. They entered, and found a strange new world filled with unfamiliar monsters. The inhabitants of Sub-Con were under siege by this army, controlled by the maniacal conqueror, Wart
The team from the Mushroom Kingdom must traverse many different areas within Sub-Con to reach wart: grassy, hilly areas; deserts with lethal quicksand; icy glaciers near an ocean filled with whales; even temples built on the clouds in the sky. All of the areas of Sub-Con feature patches of grass that can be pulled up out of the ground: the grass is typically connected to vegetables that can be thrown at enemies, but may also yield special items like POW blocks
, magical doors, time-stopping watches, and even rocketships.
Sub-Con is normally home to the Subcons, a race of fairy creatures that live their peacefully. Since the insurrection by Wart, it has become overrun with enemies like Shyguys
, and Clawgrip.
