Top 10 Mario Power Ups
The Top Ten
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.
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
I love being big and crushing everything in my way. It makes me do powerful! Not even bowser is tough anymore compared to me!
It makes Mario invincible and severely big. It first aired in New Super Mario Bros DS.
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?V 6 Comments
You can jump on waterfalls with this item and skate on water. Enough said.
Too bad this didn't return for SMG2.
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 upV 1 Comment
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
The power up that made the frog suit and ice flower obsolete
Underrated Power Up.
1. Shoots Ice Balls
2. Can slide (kills enemies, crosses water)
3. Better Swimming
4. Doesn’t slide on ice
Slide along the ice super quick. shoot ice. and swim super fast definitely the best power
it's weird hot it isn't better than the ice flower
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
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.
Do I even need to explain?
Number 1 love it
Really Cool - Top10MasterzV 2 Comments
No, Yoshi is not a power up but the egg yes so to all those people saying no the Yoshi egg is a power up, BUT Yoshi itself is a character.
Uh... no Yoshi doesn't count
Most op power up! You need to sacrifice him sometimes which sucks
Is he a power up?V 2 Comments
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
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 levelsV 3 Comments
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
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!
THE VERY BOTTOM?V 1 Comment
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?
I like this because you can fly plus Super Mario Galaxy is AWESOME!
This power up speaks for it self ITS GOLD
Its sastifiying to use
First appearance:Super Mario 64
Nothing sets more fear in my heart than this little bugger...
This is awesome it should be higher
Blue shell is awesome.
I think it's the most useful why is it so low
How about turning into a hammer bro and making it rain hammers?
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.
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.
I have never heard of this is this the same as a Super Star?
Isn't this the same as a Super Star?
YES YES YES YES YES I LOVE THIS POWERUP
IT'S SO MUCH FUN!
The most powerful item in the series+ the most fun power up to use = SASTYFACTION!
Best and most underrated power-up. Ever
5 marios vs 1 boss. It's awesome
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?
First appearance:Super Mario Bros. 3

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