Rubble Ruins contains the main section of the second world in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, with the rest of World 2 being in Soggy Sewers. It is a standard desert-themed world.

Its castle boss is King Thwomp and its airship boss is Roy Koopa.


Rubble Ruins is a bright yellow sandy desert filled with several palm trees, barrels, sand blocks, and cacti. The desert starts out close to the water, but after passing Soggy Sewers the player will end up on much higher piece of land. Under this higher land is Soggy Sewers. To the north of this section of land is a massive pyramid, with a small cave to the left of it.

Rubble Ruins can be accessed through completing Derelict Airship in Yoshi's Island or through Soggy Sewers via Leafpile Fortress in Goldwood Forest. Completion of Sandship grants access to Chomproller Heights in Mushroom Peaks. Completion of the secret exit of Pillar Pass grants access to Mighty Meadow in Mini-Mega Island.
