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


The Top Ten

1 More Overworld Themes

It's not getting any - darthvadern

I'm from the future along with the other person, super Mario maker 2 announced a lot of this stuff for that game. - MarioMaster101

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 need Desert. Then I will be happy.

2 More Power-Ups

Definitely yes
1) Ice Flower
2) Mega Mushroom
3) Mini Mushroom
4) Double Cherry
5) Boomerang Flower
6) Hammer Suit

It was hard deciding from all of these. Nice job on the list by the way! I picked this because we need more power-ups because it's cool and we don't have that many power ups in Mario maker.

Without the Ice flower, the skeletons are invincible. - Qryzx

I want the ice flower

3 More Game Styles

Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Land 2
New Super Mario Bros.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
New Super Mario Bros. 2

That's all of them (for 2d at least).

Super mario land 2 - Malcolm54046

Super mario bros 2 (japan) - Villainnumberone

Let's add Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA).

4 Koopalings

Yes! I hope they will get announced soon.

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

Bowser and his son just aren't enough.

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

5 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.

yes - YOSHIA2121

6 False Walls

Lil They Add Water Tiles?

Key for ghost houses.

yes - YOSHIA2121

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 Star Coins

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

And don't forget the dragon coins!

9 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.

10 Invisible Tracks

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

yes - YOSHIA2121

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Vertical Levels

Definitely, I wanted that

Key for cloud levels.

13 Slopes

Well Mario maker 2 has it!

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

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 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

16 More Bosses

Koopalings, Petey Piranha, Pom Pom

17 Secret Exits

Otherwise, ghost houses would practically be useless.

Make your own, be creative - YOSHIA2121

18 Super Sonic Maker

WHAT?!? - will_smm2

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

19 Baby Yoshi

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

Just like super mario world.

yes - YOSHIA2121

20 King Bill (Large Bullet Bill)

We need them. You know it.

21 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.
22 Amiibo Costumes Being Able to Use Any Powerup

Would be cool - Pokemonfan10

23 Freddy Fazbear Freddy Fazbear Freddy Fazbear (originally known as Freddybear, as seen in the Kickstarter) is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

What this is just as weird as putting papyrus on this list

24 Angry Sun

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

But Its Too Leaked!

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

25 Lava Without a Castle

Key for volcano levels.

yes - YOSHIA2121

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

26 On/Off Block
27 World Map Editor
28 Triangle Blocks

That Will Be Great For SMM

29 Super Metroid Maker
30 Super Zelda Maker
31 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.

32 Poison Mushroom

It is a power-up that acts like an enemy

33 Rescuable Characters (Peach Etc) and More Playables
34 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.😀😀

35 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

36 Use for Coins and Points

Nintendo needs to find a way to make them useful.

37 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.

38 More Warp Pipe Places
39 Super Springs

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

40 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.

41 Petey Piranha Petey Piranha


42 Breakable Glass Tiles

This was the first thing that popped in my head when it came to Odyssey DLC, so yeah. - TheAwesomeBowser

43 Maggie Pesky Maggie Pesky

Really Bro?!
