Every Medal in Super Mario Bros. Wonder and how to unlock them
Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the newest entry in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Mario and friends return in 2D form for the first time since New Super Mario Bros U in 2012. It continues the series’ legacy of varied and unique levels, with each world and stage being hit after hit.
Furthermore, each level is infinitely replayable, which is great news for completionists. Super Mario Bros. Wonder has various things to collect, some of which are hidden in secret areas and can’t be acquired until you’ve already beaten the game.
That said, Medals are the highest achievement in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and you must unlock them if you want to 100% the game. In total, there are 6 medals.
Some are easy to acquire, while others will take you on a treasure hunt and might even be somewhat frustrating, However, longtime Mario players will tell you that this is where the real fun of the games lies.
This guide is all about the 6 medals and how to get them.
How to Earn Medals
Here are all the best and fastest ways to earn Medals in Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
This is the simplest medal to get, as all you’ll have to do is finish the game and watch the ending. After this, the game itself will start giving you tips on how to get more medals.
You’ll have to collect every Wonder Seed to get this medal. Most levels have one or two wonder seeds, but some have a third hidden in a secret area. You can buy the Sensor Badge from a Poplin Shop to make your search easier.
In total, there are 225 Wonder Seeds,
- 35 in Pipe-Rock Plateau.
- 30 in Fluff-Puff Peaks.
- 20 in Shining Falls.
- 36 in Sunbaked Desert.
- 21 in Fungi Mines.
- 30 in Deep Magma Bog.
- 34 in Petal Isles.
- 18 in Special World.
10 Flower Coins
Next, you’ll have to collect all Purple 10-coins, of which there are three in every level. They are usually easy to spot while you’re playing through the game, but some are hidden behind hidden blocks and obstacles.
Standees are purchasable items at the Poplin Shop, costing 30 Flower Coins.
You’ll have to collect all 144 standees, which consist of:
- 12 Mario Standees
- 12 Luigi Standees
- 12 Peach Standees
- 12 Daisy Standees
- 12 Yellow Toad Standees

- 12 Light Blue Yoshi Standees

Try to collect every Flower Coin in each level to make your life easier. Furthermore, make sure to buy Standees when you’re around 999 coins; otherwise, you’ll waste flower coins, as you can only carry 999 Flower Coins at a time.
Every level in every 2D Super Mario game has ended with a Flagpole since the first 2D Super Mario Bros in 1985. And since then, players have tried to end each level by touching the top of the flagpole.
This is how you can get this medal: by touching the top of the flagpole at the end of every level. How long this takes will depend on how experienced you are at this, and it can get frustrating, as mistiming your jump means you’ll have to go through the level all over again.
To get this last medal, you’ll have to collect all 24 Badges. Badges are equippable items that gives you boosts and access to new moves.
Furthermore, they can be helpful in collecting the items you need to get the other medals, as some of the badges can help you get to hidden areas and also give you an extra or boosted jump to help with the flagpole.
There are various ways to get badges, including challenges, and some are even purchasable from the Poplin Shop.
In total, there are
- 9 Action Badges
- 11 Boost Badges
- 4 Expert Badges
