Forest Maze is a stage featured in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The maze is where the player will inevitably find Geno and add him to the player's roster during the fight against the boss Bowyer. There are various different paths that the player will have to chose in the game, featuring a similar area to the Lost Woods of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, in which the path you must chose is not always evident.
The game's enemies consists of Wigglers, Guerillas, Amanita, and various other enemies. The latter would oftentimes disguise themselves as mushrooms, and then reveal their true appearance and attack Mario (thus giving the name of the song for this level - "Beware the Forest's Mushrooms!").
The game's song is perhaps the best known in all of Super Mario RPG. As previously mentioned, it is titled "Beware the Forest's Mushrooms!", due to the fact that the Amanita, a type of enemy, will mask themselves as a regular mushroom (in an area consisting of multiple real mushrooms), and then come alive and attack the player. The song was initially going to appear in the Wii's Super Smash Bros. Brawl, though was taken out, probably due to Square Enix owning the song. Nevertheless, hackers have managed to recover it anyway, along with a multitude of others.
