Warp Cannons (or simply just cannons) are special areas seen throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. They always involve launching the player out of a cannon, leading them to the start of a further world, often skipping another in the process.

Most Warp Cannons are completely optional, only being unlocked by secret exits and leading to worlds that can be accessed using other means, though some of them can be the sole path to a specific world, and sometimes mandatory. This is mainly seen within Newer: Summer Sun, where two of its worlds, World 5 and World 8, are unlocked solely via Warp Cannons and are the only path that can be taken.

In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, World 5-Cannon.png in Moonview Glacier is the only path to Lunar Realm, though it is not mandatory as the player can still reach Koopa Country without it.

Despite Newer: Holiday Special only having one proper world, a Warp Cannon can be accessed in the form of World 1-Cannon2.png. It leads to a sealed off World 5 that serves no real purpose.
