In a departure from previous 2D Super Mario titles, Super Mario Bros. Wonder features a unique twist: all playable characters (with the exception of Yoshi and Nabbit, who are immune to damage) share identical abilities. Yes, it’s quite a surprise! But don’t fret: special abilities haven’t been entirely scrapped. Instead, Wonder introduces a novel mechanic known as Badges, which can modify the traits of each character. You’ll find a variety of Badges that can boost your jumping, enable gliding, or even provide a grappling hook-like function.

But there’s one Badge that truly stands out from the rest — the secret and final “Sound Off?” Badge. How can you unlock this enigmatic Badge, and what wonders does it bring? Read on to uncover the answers.


What is the “Sound Off?” Badge in Super Mario Bros. Wonder


The “Sound Off?” Badge is arguably one of the quirkiest Badges the game features. Upon activation, it transforms all in-game sound effects into a unique acapella-style rendition, featuring a human actor beatboxing the effects. Unlike most other Badges, this one doesn’t introduce any additional gameplay alterations.


How do I unlock the “Sound Off?” Badge in Super Mario Bros. Wonder?



Earning the “Sound Off?” Badge is no walk in the park. To secure this unique Badge, you must journey through the game until you reach the elusive secret world levels. Upon reaching this point, you’ll encounter a daunting trial known as “The Final-Final Test Badge Marathon,” a challenge unlike any other you’ve faced in the game. It’s a true test of skill and perseverance, even for seasoned Mario players. But if you manage to conquer this final obstacle, the coveted “Sound Off?” Badge will be yours! Best of luck on your journey!
