Top 10 Super Mario Power Ups

The Top Ten

1 Fire Flower

It is helpful for killing all types of enemies

Good item but should not be number 1, where is the cape feather?

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

2 Super Leaf

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 Ice Flower

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

Too bad this didn't return for SMG2.

Thank you for being top - LoneShadow379

4 Mega Mushroom

I love being big and crushing everything in my way. It makes me do powerful! Not even bowser is tough anymore compared to me!

I get to destroy everything in my path! Not even King Bowser is strong against me NOW! - MarioMaster101

You can defeat everybody and smash a bunch of stuff! Not so bad, are you King Bowser? - MarioMaster101

It makes Mario invincible and severely big. It first aired in New Super Mario Bros DS.

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

YOU ARE INVINCIBLE. WHY ISN'T THIS NUMBER ONE?

6 Penguin Suit

It's basically a combination of 3 power ups. What more vould you ask?

How is this not in the top 5
1. Ice balls (rip ice flower)
2. Can slide when dashing (rip NSMB ds shell)
3. Good swimming (rip frog suit)
4. You don't slide on ice

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

The power up that made the frog suit and ice flower obsolete

7 Propeller Mushroom

Flying, Jumping, Kicking Baddies to Oblivion + Destroying your friends records.
Whats not to love?

THE BEST for impressive speed runs

Aw, hell yeah! Huge air boost, can help you skip over huge pots and create some unusual shortcuts!

May not looks strong as it offer no ability to get rid of the enemy, but hey, fight is not always the only option, right? Thanks for Koopa troops has extremely poor air force this suit will often send you to the sky(if there is no ceiling) with no resistance from Koopa Troops in the remaining level as long as there are safe point to land occasionally.

8 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

9 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

10 Bee Mushroom

So cute

The Newcomers

? Cappy
? Mega Super Bell

The Contenders

11 Super Mushroom
12 Mini Mushroom

It's like a key, it can be used to access secrets. Jump higher, walk on water, smaller hitbox, and can be used on speedruns (don't forget the NSMBW hint in world 3 where Mario used bullet bills to reach the goal). - Qryzx

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.

13 Cape Feather

Too broken can beat half of the stages if you have at least kinda ok hand-eye coordination.

Easily the best flying power-up.

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

Too low on this list. Why is this number 30? YOU CAN GET RIDICULOUS DISTANCES WITH THIS POWER-UP! IT ALSO GIVES YOU A JUMP BOOST TO GET TO OUT-OF-REACH PLATFORMS! THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1 RIGHT NOW!

14 Super Bell

I think it's the most useful why is it so low

YES YES YES YES YES I LOVE THIS POWERUP

15 Rock Mushroom

Transforms Mario into Rock Mario then allows him to destroy enemies and objects by rolling through them!

Rock mushroom is a creative power-up. It feels out of place and stands out to me. I wish the next 3D Mario game after odyssey has this power-up in a creative level.

It's just awesome

16 Invincibility Leaf

Helps you in levels your struggling with. But it just makes it too easy then. - B1ueNew

I actually see this one as cheating, for people who aren't good at the game - Martinglez

The most powerful item in the series+ the most fun power up to use = SASTYFACTION!

HEY! WHO PUT THIS ON THE LIST IT IS TERRIBLE! and B1ueNew: WHY DID U AGREE!

17 Boo Mushroom

First appearance:Super Mario Galaxy

This power up sucks

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?

18 Tanooki Suit

First appearance:Super Mario Bros. 3

19 Red Star

Hasn't been used since Galaxy, and was barely used there, but it would be fun to see in an actual level.

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

20 Wing Cap

First appearance:Super Mario 64

21 Boomerang Flower

IT'S SO MUCH FUN!

22 Gold Flower

This power up speaks for it self ITS GOLD

Its sastifiying to use

23 Blue Shell

Why is this so low? This power up is SO FUN to toy around with in loads of levels especially speed running World 4-2.

Nothing sets more fear in my heart than this little bugger...

This is awesome it should be higher

Blue shell is awesome.

24 Frog Suit

Frog suit is one of the coolest power ever it turns you into a frog it gives you better swimming underwater
also if you use this one land I know it makes you slow but it is useful for underwater levels this power is awesome.

25 Copy Flower

Super underrated. Like the other Power Ups only appearing in PiT

First appearance:Mario & Luigi:Partners In Time

Amazing it should be number 8 it makes another you!
They gotta bring it back!
Oh and did I mention it is called the double cherry?

5 marios vs 1 boss. It's awesome

26 Hammer Suit

Ever wanted to be overpowered like a Hammer Bro, well now you can with the Hammer Suit!

How about turning into a hammer bro and making it rain hammers?

27 Spring Mushroom

Spring Mario is hard to control sometimes. I think it is okay.

28 Super Pickaxe
29 Goomba's Shoe

Best and most underrated power-up. Ever

30 Lucky Bell

First appearance:Super Mario 3D World

31 Double Cherry
32 Super Acorn

Number 43...
WHY ISN’T THIS IN THE TOP TEN IT IS A GREAT POWER UP!

33 Carrot

First appeared in super Mario land 2 six golden coins

34 Super Hammer

This power-up is great. It only appears in Super Mario Maker 2 in the 3D World Game Style, but it's powerful and fun to use. - Villainnumberone

35 Cannon Box

A great and useful item! It’s ranged and can kill a lot of enemies. I love blowing everything up and go like “ FBI OPEN UP! ” And start shooting everything in sight!

36 Vanish Cap

Way Cooler than the Wing Cap and Metal Cap

37 Pal Pill

Woah. A whole 8-bit army of Mario's!

38 Dash Pepper
