All of the powerups that our heroes use to their Advantage from almost every game!
Yellow Mushroom Indicators tell you that it is a custom powerup!
This is what people look like usually, but in the Mario world, some people turn small when damaged, so this is used to regain height. Will give the user the ability to break bricks with simple punches.
The user will gain the ability to throw fire balls, they bounce around and eventually fizzle out, the users clothes will turn white and red, sometimes their player color in some cases. Aiming isn’t the strongest ability, but fire throwing in general is just cool.
Will make anybody who touches this flash rainbow colors around them, gain fast speeds and become nearly unstoppable, users are still vulnerable to weights, alarming heat or lava, running into walls, and bottomless pits. The powerup is temporary, a fade-away can demotivate a first-time user.
Once used, the user will grow raccoon ears and a raccoon tail. The ears appear on a hat you're wearing, but if the user isn't wearing a hat it'll just appear on their head. Sometimes may lead to louder hearing which is why people wear hats instead. The tail when used quickly can lead to attacks when swept around, can make you glide if you repeatedly swipe it and can even make you fly with enough speed. The tail and ears are real, so trying to rip them off will hurt. Sometimes will turn people into fox forms instead, but it'll act the same. Some people say it's unlucky, but people don't care about it as much as the gold flower. This powerup also has the most alternate forms, with the Super Bell in second.
It’s pretty much the same as the Super Leaf, but you wear a whole costume now, and it comes with a new ability. If you try hard enough you can become an entire statue. In this form you can't move anything at all, and your eyesight is very bad. Luckily, it’s only temporary, and it pays off for using it, for example, it’s heavy, so you’ll be able to stomp enemies with ease, and probably more you couldn’t before, like spinies. Sometimes will turn people into kitsune forms instead, but it'll act the same.
STRIPED SUPER LEAF
This powerup is similar to the Tanooki Suit, however it's more limited than both the leaf and the suit, flying isn't possible with it, but gliding is, however the tail swipe is much more powerful. The suit is slightly darker than the other Tanooki Suit so a difference can be made.
Powerup Combinations are rare in the Mushroom Kingdom, so seeing a Flametail user is quite the sight, with the powerup, both the Super Leaf and Fire Flower's powers are combined which gives you a good choice on weaponry, however flight isn't as powerful as the regular Super Leaf and Fireballs fizzle out a little quicker. Still a good powerup overall, and some collectors find it hard to get one.
Makes becoming a statue easier, and will improve eyesight in your statue form, at the cost of being slightly weaker in the form. The look is the same as the tanooki suit, but with a scarf that's usually the player colour to tell the difference.
Using this powerup gives the user a full frog suit, standing isn't recommended unless your arms are occupied, making you have to stand on all fours, walking isn’t great either, because to move you have to hop. Luckily, you can breathe underwater much easier, and swimming becomes super useful, being able to stay still and not sink to the ground, and swimming is much faster and easier to do.
Gives the user a helmet and small shell that can reflect most projectiles thrown at it, at a cost, sitting is uncomfortable and sliding down slopes is next to impossible, can throw hammers at quick speeds, but there’s a cool down after throwing 2, they’re very strong hammers, too! Hammer bros will like you more, but they'll most likely still hate you.
Using this gives the user a flash of nostalgia, almost as if music is ringing in their ears, will make the user look retro game boy-green. Able to throw super balls, but they take a long time to stop moving and dissolve, not to mention they'll barely hit corners like a DVD screensaver.
This powerup will give the user a cape, and not just any cape, a cape that will make the user feel like a superhero (well, hopefully.) by being able to soar the skies with it, it'll gonna require a running start and a lot of knowledge on how to control the cape before it starts being good, most first time users simply glide down to the floor but experts can stay in the air for what feels like an eternity. Rumors mention that this powerup used to be a lot more powerful, but it may have been a powerup lost to time.
This powerup basically turns the user into a balloon which allows them to float in the air freely, but will run out of air with time and deflate. This powerup is a bit weird and not used often, so there's not much to say.
Will give the user a pair of bunny ears able to withstand their weight to the point of barely falling when flapping their ears, it does hinder the hearing a bit when gliding, though. Aside from that, jumping is made easier and higher.
Will make the user 4 times as big, almost unstoppable for a temporary amount of time. Can’t be used in tiny rooms as the powerup knows it’s limits. Breaking a couple things can be rewarded with 1-UP's, but it takes a lot to get that, so it isn't recommended. Very good for breaking pipes and flagpoles.
Will shrink the user, but will increase their speed and lower their gravity, sometimes able to run over water and even up walls, does make any type of damage an instant death, though. Some secret areas are accessed by only the Mini Mushroom, and they're normally hard to get to overall.
This powerup will give the user a shell on their back. Hiding in the shell is easy, but it won't help when attacked with projectiles. When at top speed, hop in the shell and let it do the running for you. Your sight is heavily affected, as you ARE spinning, it’s possible to jump in the shell, despite being very cramped. Probably not the blue shell you're thinking of.
This hat will grant the user the ability to fly similar to the Cape Feather for a temporary amount of time, again, first time users may be unexperienced in flying with it. Try not to lose your hat.
This hat will make the user partially invisible and able to go through slim walls, gates and even some enemies for a temporary amount of time. Phasing through things does tend to feel a bit weird, but it should be fine.
This hat will turn the user metal temporary and has similar abilities to the Super Star, being invincible n' all, it does make the user extremely heavy though, which can help them at some times, it makes breathing underwater a breeze and you'll sink to the ground being unable to be affected by anything the water brings your way.
This powerup will give the user the ability to fly freely, no downsides, just cool red beams that shoot out of your hands when you take flight. Unfortuantly this powerup is super rare, obtainable, but very hard to find. Will give the user a player color/black clothing combo, which looks cool.
Will make the user look like a bee, the stinger doesn't do anything, so it's just a sitting-prevention annoyance. The user is able to use their small wings to gain seconds of vertical height, the big ability is that you’re able to stick to honey and move around easier, you can even move up walls. Water hurts and will remove the powerup, though.
Will incase the user in a spring, but make their body able to stretch easier, in this form they can only jump/bounce. You won’t be able to take a nap with this on, attempting to crouch will press you down and shoot you into the air.
This will turn anybody who touches it into a vulnerable boo, Regular boos will be able to notice it, but the alive won’t. Going invisible doesn’t hurt, but using the powerup slightly will, considering the fact that Boos are ghosts and technically you’re disguised as the dead. With the Boo Mushroom, you're able to read and speak Booish, which could let the user know about secrets.
The Frost Flower is usually confused with the Ice Flower, but people gave the Frost Flower the name due to being confused. The powerup will turn the user into ice, being able to skate around icey floors and turn water into ice which you can skate and wall jump on. Also to mention, it basically means you're immune to the cold. It's probably not a good idea to use it in the summer or in a hot area, though.
Will give slight immune to the cold’s freeze. Able to throw ice balls. If collided with another person/enemy, will freeze them in a cube, leaving them vulnerable. The ice makes it easier to carry around heavier characters. Clothes changing are the same as fire, but instead of white, they change to light blue.
Will give you a controllable propeller on your head that can shoot you into the air at high speeds, pulling down while floating will drill you down. The powerup gives you a suit which uses your player color, and, yes, the propeller can support any weight.
Touching this will make the user slightly smaller and makes your arms into penguin arms, which, from what I can tell, doesn’t look like you can hold things great. You will get an extreme immune to the cold, and ice won’t slip you up, plus the fact that you can throw ice balls. The big feature is the movement, sliding down on your stomach will let you slide fast, faster on ice. Your head will penetrate through brick blocks, but be sure to look out because walls can hurt face on. Swimming is like the frog suit, but slightly altered as you can’t swim as great as it can. If given overalls, they are the player colour.
Touching this will give the user the ability to form a rock sphere that sends itself speeding forwards, the user is able to control it, but barely as it’s going very fast. Can give the user slight motion sickness. Mainly used for extreme bowling.
Once used, the user will become super light-weight and fall slower, 3 clouds will accompany you, and you can turn them into temporary platforms by spinning, but unfortunately, they're temporary and they will disappear. The user will need to pick up another cloud flower to regenerate their clouds. Also gives you a slightly jump boost, but it isn't too noticeable.
Will allow the user to glide in the air by just lifting their arms up, when colliding with a wall, they’ll stick to it easier, but not before sliding down fast. Can also give a giant lift in the air, but floating down will be hindered as it’s slow and will bring you down faster. Gives you the ears and tail, but they’re barely used, and the tail isn’t good for anything. Overalls will be their player colour.
The same as the super acorn, but will give you infinite amount of flight, although it will get tiring eventually, but it does take a really long while. Gliding will show P particles, and they’re quite bright. After some time, it'll turn back into a regular Super Acorn.
Will turn you into gold when used, will shorten eyesight a little bit and make it harder to move, and definitely will increase your weight. You can shoot gold flame balls, when collided with anything vulnerable, can turn it into coins. Colliding with other people can kill fast. Some people turn into silver versions, which to some people is seen as unlucky.
This powerup is almost the same as the hammer suit, but instead the helmet and shell is blue and boomerangs get thrown out instead! They'll come back at you, but if you dodge it, it'll keep going for a certain time before breaking itself.
When used, will give the user the traits of a cat, standing is uncomfortable when arms aren’t occupied so all fours it is, but sprinting faster than regular running, so that's just preferred. The users hands and feet will turn into paws and allow them to claw enemies, it can also give them the ability to climb up walls. In the air, users can dive down at an angle and stomp whatever’s below. Side effects do include the user sometimes acting like an actual cat which can distract the user, it's not very common though. The cat suit's fur color will mainly be their player colour, tail's real too, for some odd reason.
It’s the same as the super bell, but now you have a collar on your neck, which allows you to turn into a gold statue. When a statue in the air, dropping will make coins appear. Probably won't be a good look on you on the memory booklet.
Again, it's the same as the super bell. However now you turn 8x your size, able to pick up large objects and toss them around. Standing is slightly less uncomfortable but still enough to make users go all fours. Users will get distracted a lot less than the super bell (mainly because if you're using the Giga Bell you probably have higher priorities)
Once touched, will summon a clone that does exactly everything you do. If killed, will simply disappear. If you are killed, your mind will swap with the clones, and it’ll die for you. It does have the chance to go rogue and try take you down, but that's a 1 in a million chance, so don't think bad of it.
A man-made powerup designed to turn the user who uses it into a familiar face, the costume mostly doesn’t give any new abilities, it’s just that the user looks different. Some costumes do hinder eyesight or change how a person moves normally. Sometimes the costumes give new abilities, like the spring costume that allows users to use themselves as a springboard. Some powerups have been made into costumes too, but the effects of the powerups won't apply. Fun fact, this powerup is illegal in some cities.
One touched, things start feeling off, you become super skinny and can jump super high. Side effects do include the feeling of being second place, people under the effects of the mushroom aren’t allowed in some public places for some reason. Nobody knows why. Just a weird powerup overall.
Will make the user small, but will double their size, and make their appearance look more modern. Can smash through regular blocks with ease, but it’s a bit too powerful and could potentially break more things than intended.
This will give the user a bright red nose that might help you in the dark and a santa hat which also gives the user the ability to fly for a short period of time and summon explosive presents, better hope that's not what you're getting this year. The perfect powerup for christmas, but it's expensive because of it's abilities. Some people have banned using this powerup on October for obvious reasons. Merry Christmas!
A poison shroom corrupted by Otherworld blood and a double cherry combined turned into the Otherworld Cherry, using this is highly unrecommended, as making one will produce a evil clone only following a group who devastated the Mushroom Kingdom in another timeline, they'll fight until everybody's dead. If one is summoned, defeat them and they'll vanish.
Bowser and Kurten put days of work into this power-up, when they really could've just used the world's only power-up combiner as a much easier method (well, I guess the travel there would take a bit.), but alas, the Darksi Cherry (pronounced dark-sye) was created, giving the user an identical clone, but the chance of the clone turning on you has been raised to 200% and better health, leading to the creation of Mr. L, and could potentionally give the evil Cherry Mario a chance to fully live. Nothing outside of Bowser's Castle is known about this power-up, but it's highly recommended to avoid it.
Why is this on the list? Well, it kinda has to, it's considered a powerup, but unfortuantly it doesn't act as a powerup, it's more of an enemy. Found in the lost levels, this mushroom is poisonous and will hurt anything and anyone who tries to use it, even touching it counts as using it which means, yeah, it'll poison you. Don't use this powerup unless you can take the heat and want those other powerup abilities off of you. There's an easier way of doing that too, though so just.. don't use this powerup.
The Super Hammer is used primarily for construction, but it's a good powerup for adventures, too. The user gets a nice builder suit with a hard hat because safety first, and it comes with a hammer too which can smash regular brick blocks to tough hard blocks which may reveal secrets when lucky. The user can also summon boxes with their player colour that they can toss around, which is also nice because it floats on water, and despite being wood, lava too. Probably a good powerup to have if you still believe you hit the blocks with your head rather than your hand.
This special hammer is unique, some has said it glows, but it doesn't. When you pick it up, it uncontrollably swings around in your hands, and if you let it go, you're probably gonna break something, and breaking things it does well, because it can break barrels, flames, and probably bones. It's not a common powerup despite it's use, it's actually kind of rare, and one of the first discovered powerups, which is weird that it's still here as they disappear after being used. Fun fact, there's a small chance for the hammer's head to fly right off, wear that hard hat!
CHARGED OTHERWORLD CHERRY
This power-up isn't really meant for usual use, it's more useful as energy for a.. specific machine that a specific somebody built during their time in life, in a place that shall not be told of. Only very few have entered the forbidden universe, but only 2 have fallen due to it.
If used as a power-up, however, it will cause the user to uncontrolably serve the Otherworld, if one already serves the Otherworld or is part of it, the amount of power added to the user is too much for the forbidden universe to handle and the user will start breaking as if they were just a glitch in a video game. If used correctly, the user can disarm the ticking timebomb by unequiping the power-up, although this will destroy the power-up in the process. If not unequipped, the user will eventually shatter, no extra lives are getting you out of this painful death.
This mushroom is a one-of-a-kind, once used, it will grant the user many superpowers in intervals, but with every benefit to it, there's also a downside depending on how the user uses it's powers.
Not much is documented on this power-up, as the only ones in existance have either been used or are lost.
