Top 10 Things That Should Be Added to Super Mario Maker for Future Updates/DLC


The Top Ten

1 More Overworld Themes

Agreed on this one,

Themes we need: Desert, Beach, Jungle, Snowland, Mountains, Skies, Volcano, Dark Forest (outdoor ghost house), Tower, Indoor Volcano & Ice Forest.
I would also like to see some exclusive themes not really seen before in Mario Games: Rainbow, Temples, Autumn, Metropolis, Subway, Farm, Japanese Village, Football Pitch, Acidic Cave, Swampland, Ziggurat, Theatre, House, Steampunk, Warbase (Military Base), Indoor Pyramid, Factory, Electricity World & Space (that's a lot of themes though, Nintendo would have to create lots more designs and music for them.)

Sky, Desert, Beach, Jungle, Volcano... Nintendo please update this game - lol999

Hello, I come from the future. Super Mario Maker 2 for the Switch is announced and a LOT of the stuff here is in the game.

We have to have more themes like Volcano, Sky, Mountain,Desert, Ice and more

4 More Enemies

I mean, seriously we need more enemies than this.

Make it so some enemies can only be placed in certain kinds of levels (raise your hand if you're tired of seeing boos in the acorn plains and seeing thwomps in airships)

I honestly don't care if I see those, I say if you see something you don't like, don't play the level, or make a level with stuff you do like - YOSHIA2121

It may be easy for the developers to add, for example, the Chargin' Chuck to the game although there's always an alternative that needs to be added so that all of the games can have a Chargin' Chuck alternative.

I'm pretty sure no one wants to do the same attack method over and over.Just like Nintendo added Mario enemies in Link's Awakening,they should add enemies from the 3d Zelda games just like the SS moblins,TP and WW darknuts,SS bokoblins,Bulblins,and more.Depending on the Amiibo,there should be enemies from their home games.πŸ™‚β˜ΊπŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

5 Slopes

These could make levels great and could make levels terrible - YOSHIA2121

6 Koopalings

You can't have a proper boss fight without them. No Koopalings = me tired of Mario maker

Larry, Morton, Roy, Lemmy, Wendy, Iggy, and Ludwig. We need them all!

Bowser and his son just aren't enough.

Okay, sure Bowser jr. just acts like a weak version of Lemmy from super Mario bros 3, and a slow version of Ludwig from Super Mario World.

7 Gravity Switches

This may seem hard to code, I know. Anyway, in Super Paper Mario, there is a stage called the Whoa Zone, and it featured a block that, when hit, flipped the gravity 180 degrees. This should be added, it would be an interesting element. - TheYoshiOverlord

I agree. This element would be very useful and would add to the creativity

8 Torpedo Ted

If you put a Bill Blaster underwater, it becomes a Torpedo Ted launcher. - TheYoshiOverlord

If You Put Some Bullet Bills In The Canon, It Turns Into Torpedo Ted.

9 False Walls

Lil They Add Water Tiles?

Key for ghost houses.

yes - YOSHIA2121

10 Fire Bros.

If you put a Fire Flower on a Hammer Bro, it becomes a Fire Bro. - TheYoshiOverlord

If You Shake A Hammer Bro It Turns Into A Fire Bro.

The Newcomers

? Petey Piranha Petey Piranha


The Contenders

11 Invisible Tracks

This would just make levels like GameXPlain's Space Invaders look better, but it's still a nice touch. - TheYoshiOverlord

yes - YOSHIA2121

12 Water Without a Water Level

These would be called water tiles shaking them would turn them into poison tiles. - Villainnumberone

Key for beach levels.

yes - YOSHIA2121

These would be called water tiles, and would be amazing to have - YOSHIA2121

13 Vertical Levels

Key for cloud levels.

14 Better Course World

The Option to make an entire game in course world that looked like a Mario game, So you could make a custom super Mario game with the same layout except you made the levels and got to chose the number of levels

yes - YOSHIA2121

15 Star Coins

If You Put A Mushroom On A Coin, It Turns Into Star Coins.

And don't forget the dragon coins!

16 More Bosses

Koopalings, Petey Piranha, Pom Pom

17 Baby Yoshi

If You Shake A Yoshi, I Turns Into A Baby Yoshi.

Just like super mario world.

yes - YOSHIA2121

18 Lava Without a Castle

Key for volcano levels.

yes - YOSHIA2121

These would be called lava tiles. shake to turn into a frost tile. - Villainnumberone

19 Secret Exits

Otherwise, ghost houses would practically be useless.

Make your own, be creative - YOSHIA2121

20 Super Sonic Maker

This is a bit of an unrealistic idea. A Super Sonic Maker would warrant its own game (developed and published by Sega) rather than merely being DLC of Super Mario Maker.

That would be genesis's game. Not Nintendo's.

This doesn't make sense - YOSHIA2121

21 King Bill (Large Bullet Bill)

We need them. You know it.

22 Amiibo Costumes Being Able to Use Any Powerup

Would be cool - Pokemonfan10

23 Angry Sun

It could be defeated with a star or frozen with an ice flower. - Villainnumberone

But Its Too Leaked!

no - YOSHIA2121

We need the angry sun! Imagine if there were like 5 of them at the same time O.o

24 On/Off Block

no - YOSHIA2121

25 World Map Editor

no - YOSHIA2121

26 Triangle Blocks

That Will Be Great For SMM

27 Super Metroid Maker
28 Super Zelda Maker
29 Dry Bowser Dry Bowser Dry Bowser is the fossilized version of the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise, Bowser. He first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS after Bowser had been dumped into the lava and was left with his skeleton. Since then, Dry Bowser has appeared as a villain in games like Super more.

Imagine if Bowser could jump in and out of lava, throw bones, and shoot blue fire, Dry Bowser.

30 Poison Mushroom

It is a power-up that acts like an enemy

31 Rescuable Characters (Peach Etc) and More Playables
32 More Challenging Enemies

Enemies should not have the same weak point.Nintendo should have weapon,shields,and even personality to make things look less linear.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

33 1000 Mario Challenge

No,a better play mode,like say,there's a lives system when playing an individual level. alsoyou should be able to play an entire coursebot all at once. you start with 10 lives,but the life cap is 99. if you lose 5 lives,in assists block appears,granting you an invincibility leaf,for a white raccoon form. losing 10 lives gives you a p-wing,which fills the power meter permanently and gives invincibility. losing 15 lives in a course would create an invincibility balloon,which gives mario invincibility and the ability to use a balloon to float backup once. losing 20 lives would cause the cosmic spirit herself to appear. - Villainnumberone

34 Use for Coins and Points

Nintendo needs to find a way to make them useful.

35 Half-Block Placements

There should be more variety in where you can place blocks. Nintendo should divide up the block placement grid more so you can place objects half in and half out of other objects, or quarter in if you want.

36 Papyrus Papyrus Papyrus is a character from the 2015 game Undertale, made by Toby Fox . He is the Younger brother of Sans the skeleton, royal guard in training, and a sentry in the town of Snowdin . Opposite to his brother, papyrus is active, loud, and full of himself; but in an endearing way. Papyrus means to become more.
37 More Warp Pipe Places
38 Super Springs

Super springs are what I want. They bounce you way higher. They would be great for secret exits.

39 A Coin Challenge

What I mean is that when u collect e.g. 10% of da coins in a course, u get 1 coin. 20% = 2 coins, 50% = 5 coins e.g. 100% of the coins in a course will get u 10 coins. Courses without coins r not included in da challenge. 100 coins can get u an amiibo costume.
