Pumpkin Boneyard is the fourth world in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It is a spooky haunted land full of Boos and Dry Bones. It is represented by a Boo over a purple sky.

Its tower boss is Bowser Jr. and its airship boss is Dry Bowser.


Pumpkin Boneyard is an orange-grassed pumpkin-filled field with a purple sky and several dead trees nearly identical to Pumpkin Boneyard from Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. Gravestones are found throughout and poison water flows from below. Boos and Dry Bones are common enemies seen throughout.

Pumpkin Boneyard can be accessed through completing Overgrown Armoury in Dorrie's Island or through using World 1-Cannon.png in Goldleaf Plains, unlocked via Ropeblast Tower's secret exit. Completion of Derelict Schooner grants access to Snowfield Plateau in Moonview Glacier. Completion of The House of Doors' secret exit grants access to World 4-Cannon.png, leading to Boomblast Badlands in Koopa Country.

  • From versions 1.00 to 1.07, Pumpkin Thornhill and Grimoire Grounds (known as Springy Spiritland at the time) had the same level preview image due to an oversight. This was corrected in version 1.10.
  • This is the only world where Koopa Paratroopas are absent.
  • Upon Newer Super Mario Bros. DS's release, fans were quick to point out that Pumpkin Boneyard was the fourth world of Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, and that featured a spooky theme. This was pointed out because, in Japan, four is an unlucky number, which kind of fits the world's theme. Skawo, sadly, said that it was just a coincidence.
