Top Ten Worst Mario Power-Ups

The Top Ten

1 Poison Mushroom

This isn't even a power-up, it's a power-down. - TheYoshiOverlord

It's not even a power-up. - SheepBuggy

2 Dangerous Delight
3 Spring Mushroom

It's so hard to get used to the controls. Spring into Chompworks took me about an hour and 15 minutes just on the section where the chomps roll down the pathway and hit the gearmo.

4 P-Balloon

Ladies and gentlemen, if sonic has created the worst form fandom this power-up is responsible for at least 20% of that fandom's artwork, the first example of inflation fetish... good job Myamoto, very good job

It's useless in the game. I know there's a lot of people that are going to say things like '' NO YOU CAN FLY WITH IT! "' well the tanooki leaf AND the carrot are way better and they can fly too. I hate this power-up because it's just an excuse to make nasty porn. - SheepBuggy

Fetish 1.0 :(

5 Frog Suit

It's so annoying on land

OK this power up is only bad in land levels.


6 Super Mushroom

Without this power-up, you can't get the other better ones. However, if you get it from a Roulette Block when you're big, then it's useless. - TheYoshiOverlord

All u get is an extra hit. Nope no flying no hovering no shooting, none of that.

7 Mini Mushroom

This is only useful if you need to get to a star coin that's stuck in a tiny hole. Otherwise, you're a one-hit-kill target.

You need it to access some hidden Star Coins and go into small pipes. - TheYoshiOverlord

It makes you weaker... that's it


8 The Carrot

Why is this so low?

This allows Mario to pursue his dream as a bunny...okay... - DCfnaf

9 Boo Biscuit
10 Ice Flower (New Super Mario Bros Series)

The Penguin Suit does the same thing and so much more at the same time. I hate how this flower is so common. It was better in Galaxy. - ElecmansMinion

How is this useless? It's more versatile than the Fire Flower. - TheYoshiOverlord

The Contenders

11 Fire Flower (Super Mario Land)
12 Raccoon Tail
13 Light Box
14 Metal Mario Metal Mario

This is bad EXCEPT in Super Mario 64. Other than that, HE'S A RIP OFF!

15 Gold Mario Gold Mario


16 Goomba Mask
