Top 10 Mario Power Ups

The Top Ten

1 Fire Flower

You can shoot fireballs like a ranged weapon but most enemies (we're looking at you dry bones) are invincible. Great against Bowser but it can't get rid of his fireballs. In Super Mario Galaxy / Super Mario Galaxy 2 unfortunately you can't use it for long and it is hard to use; but if you master it all the goombas will be running away (just like Meta Knight in SSB)! Anyway out of interest I'm not the creator of this list (I swear).

Destroy anything, and everything, you can even kill some giant fat turtle dragon with this - amenyoussef

Hitting an enemy with a fire ball is one of the most satisfying things in mario games.

2 Racoon Suit

The best power-up from Super Mario Bros. 3 it gives you the ability to sly and can turn invisible, and by the the way its called the Tannoki Suit not the raccoon suit. - egnomac

I call it the acorn suit

This is amazing

3 Mega Mushroom

May not be in many Mario Games but not having this as #1 is a sillier decision than placing a button that your enemy can touch and brake the floor open.

If you get one of these, you can destroy literally everything except the terrain. Not so tough now are you, Bowser?

Whenever you need a power up and you don't care what it is the mushroom is there for you

Very effective against the giant goomba boss in world 4 - amenyoussef

4 Ice Flower

You can jump on waterfalls with this item and skate on water. Enough said.

5 Super Star

Not only the best to use, but also has the best music

If I made these top tens I would make this number 2

I love the super star plus it has great music

#1 power up

6 Metal Cap

Why is the Metal Cap only No.8? It should be at least No.2 or No.3. Metal Mario is my 2nd favorite Mario franchise character (my favorite is Luigi) and the Metal Cap is my favorite Mario game Power-up. Metal Mario has become a popular Mario character too. He has appeared in the origional Super Smash bros., Super Smash bros. Melee, Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, and even Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I'm pretty sure that the Metal Cap is the only Mario Power-up that has become a character.

Why is the Metal Cap No.8? It should be at least No.2 or No.3! It makes you almost completely invincible, though it's limited. Metal Mario is actually my 2nd favorite Mario character (Luigi is my number 1 favorite) and the Metal Cap is my favorite Mario game Power-up. Metal Mario has become a popular Mario franchise character too he's appeared in Super Smash bros. Melee, the origional Super Smash bros., Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, and even Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!

If you have played mario for a very long time,youll know that the metal cap is also in super mario 64

7 Propeller Suit

Do I even need to explain?

Number 1 love it

Really Cool - Top10Masterz

8 Penguin Suit

This should be higher than the ice flower because it throws ice balls, you can slide with it and you swim faster. - Martinglez

Penguin suit is awesome

So damn fun

9 Yoshi Egg

Is he a power up?

Yoshi is a character not a power up

Yoshi rules

10 Cloud Flower

One word: Broken

This powerup is so op and exploitive and I love it for that reason - thunderstar1124

One of the reasons why Galaxy 2 is awesome.
Beautiful idea, Nintendo has invented some stages around this power-up that are simply the best

The Contenders

11 Super Mushroom
12 Bee Mushroom
13 Mini Mushroom

You die fast with this one but you can walk on water and he jumps like twice as high as normal!

Makes you walk on water make sure you bring it on water levels

Walking on water has never been so easy.

Very Very Very Very Very annoying - TealBoyxx

14 Rock Mushroom

It's just awesome

15 Boo Mushroom

First appearance:Super Mario Galaxy

You turn into a ghost can fly forever in the dark as well getting the power to vanish through walls.
Oh, and did I mention that other ghosts fall in love with you?

This power up sucks

16 Red Star

I like this because you can fly plus Super Mario Galaxy is AWESOME!

17 Bee Suit
18 Cape Feather

Super Mario World introduced a lot of concepts: Yoshi, spin jumps, cool bowser fights, and the cape feather. You can fly continuously, kill munchers and other enemies, and spin your cape to kill other enemies. This should be n.1
