Dread Homing Bill (ホーミングキラのぎょうふ / Hōmingukira no Kyōfu Lit: Fear of Homing Killers) is the first level of the Plains world. A grassland level, where Mario inexplicably again gains the ability to use the Leaf Shield. This is the level after Iggy the Crazy.

The level has no secret exit.

The LevelEdit

Another level revolving Bullet Bills, but this time they are following you. The Leaf Shield's invincibility somewhat trivializes this level. After defeating the level, the level progresses to Fort of Gravity.
