Each of the five worlds contains two secret levels, making ten in total. Aside from "Run the Gauntlet", secret levels are generally a flat maze themed around a single specific enemy type. You are not allowed to save while in a secret level. If you die while inside one, rather than the usual penalty, you are simply kicked back to the level you entered from and reset to the state you were in before you entered; the secret level entrance disappears. If you are victorious, on the other hand, you get to keep all the goodies you collected.

- Barbarian Toad Haven
Accessed from The Stronghold of Fire and Ice: The walls of the Stronghold. From the platform surrounding the central tower, which has drawbridges on the other three sides, go to the east side and shoot the wall on the far side of the lava looking for a portion that explodes. Jump across the lava to get to the secret exit that is revealed.

After riding the platform across the lava to reach the key, look for a hard-to-see magic platform of red particles just to the west of the key platform. Ride this up to the secret exit. To get back from the secret platform, jump down to the south to land on the bridge where the locked door is.
