Mythril Mines begins with the racers just outside of the actual mines, with spectators and houses in the background. The first turn will bring the racers to a fork in the road which is separated by a large wooden structure. The two roads will meet after passing the large structure and they will come to a sign that says "Mythril Mines". From here on out the road becomes much more narrow and the racers will be taken underneath the first tunnel.
After passing through the first tunnel there is an inaccessible wooden road above the racers that they will follow until coming to another tunnel. Upon immediately entering the second tunnel there will be a shortcut that is directly to the left. Taking this shortcut cuts off time but the road is very narrow, allowing room for only one racer to fit through without hitting a wall.
Upon exiting the tunnel the racers will come to a sign that says "Mine Town" and the racers will have to make a series of sharp turns before coming to the finish line. The music for this course is a remix of the theme of Mount Gulg.
Goblin possesses both good speed and control, but his traction is below average. The best way to defeat Goblin is to take the shortcut near the final stretch of the track. Not allowing Goblin to steal your magic stones will give also give you an edge.
Ability: Mug- Allows Goblin to steal magic stones from the racer directly in front of him.
