Wasn't there like some rabbit power-up in one of the Mario Land games? Those games are already more-obscure than every other mainline title, so I'd imagine that one, or some other power-up from them, would be the "most-forgettable".


CreativestName69420

I would say the Superball Flower, but it reappears in SMM2


NintenZura

I wish Nintendo would stop acting like these games never happened


Nas160

He says, in response to a relatively recent game that didn't act like those games never happened


chamberx2

Which?


nonMat06teo

SMM2


NintenZura

Yeah I was really happy about the Superball item in SMM2! Hope that's a start


chamberx2

I feel the same way about most of SMB2.


the_bingho02

Bro there is smb2 mushroom in smm2 thoug


chamberx2

Read: most. I realize they use a shy guy here and a birdo there, but overall Nintendo seems embarrassed by SMB2 US.


NintenZura

A lot of features and ennemies from SMB2 are very often referenced, the game got a remake on the SNES, they just never talk about Subcon even when 3D World was an obvious reference to it For Mario Land, we got Daisy (that barely references anything from Mario Land), Tatanga having a small role in Super Mario Land 2, and the Superball item in Mario Maker 2, that's pretty much all for a, I think at least 30 years old game?


Blippity_09

Tbh Super Mario Land 2 is one of my favorite Mario games ever


DunkoDome

It's well worth being a fave. It included so many cool features that people totally over look


[deleted]

[удалено]


DunkoDome

The overworld map, secret exits, secret levels only unlocked by exiting through enough secret exits, power-up houses, a "True ending" from completing certain criteria. Especially for a game on the Gameboy with the limitations of the hardware -- it's a super cohesive, super fun, game that gives you a totally awesome adventure.


counter_wally

"True ending" Tell me more


chamberx2

It really was a revelation after the first title being developed as "this is the best we can do on handheld."


Jacubbb123

A remake from the ground up would be awesome


abibofile

The fire flower gives Mario a feather in the middle of his forehead in that game too. I’m not sure that’s aged very well, like, culturally.


roselynn-jones

A single feather on the front of a hat doesn’t step on any toes culturally like a handband or full headdress. The most problematic Mario has been were the endings for Qix on GameBoy. One of them features Mario in blackface.


abibofile

I dunno… I think it’s treading a line. But yeah, I was not aware of [Black Mario](https://images.app.goo.gl/sT3jiShitGfYGBoT8)…. that’s, uh. Yeah, not good.


acgreen1

Wow. So I googled this and the first thing that comes up is a Nintendo life article from January 2015 about this pretty much asking if the world is too sensitive nowadays to be offended by this. Imagine Nintendo life writing that article in 2022. Would never fly.


Kurochi185

I'm still confused why they chose a feather. Like sure they didn't have color so they had to do something else but using a feather while the game before that already had a feather as an item is kinda weird.


Eomercin

Maria?


abibofile

Ugh, fixed. My first attempt my came out as Marion. I hate autocorrect.


Arakan-Ichigou

The Carrot?


Nin10doFanYT

The Vanish Cap from Mario 64


you_2_cool

I think it's neat Luigi can use it


TORFdot0

The Bee (not bee mushroom) or the 3 Up Moon


roselynn-jones

Do you mean Hachisuke the Hudson bee? I’m surprised to hear someone say that here! I was lookin to see if anyone mentioned it because I was going to say it! Good job.


TORFdot0

Great minds think alike!


Alouette100

In which Mario game is the Hudson Soft logo bee found?


-PepeArown-

The 3 Up moon got brought back in NSMBU, and was made more frequent if you played as Toadettw in the deluxe version.


abibofile

Is this the mushroom that creates the super creepy skinny Mario in Mario Maker?


maxence0801

Yes it is


agentdon202

Umm whatever is in Wario land that makes him into a Zombie?


abibofile

I think just getting bitten by a zombie does that. Gosh, that game is strange. Fun, but strange.


counter_wally

>Gosh, that game is strange. Fun, but strange. The entire Wario Land series in nutshell


HighClassPlant

Invincible cat bell, only obtainable via amiibo


oofie_the_oofie_oof

No, you can die over and over again in the same level for it


HighClassPlant

Thats the invincible leaf


oofie_the_oofie_oof

Oh yeah


Get___real

The uhh Carrot from Sml2


Over-Document-7657

Honestly, I think the only reason I remember it is because it's the icon used by Supper Mario Broth, even then it doesn't register as a powerup at first.


maxence0801

Thanks to u/waffeelswaffeels for his original post


TripleLuigis

the wing from super mario bros special


LMGall4

Gold flower


MAARP22

At least that one gets referenced with the gold and silver costumes in Mario Kart 8, Tour, and Home Circuit


LMGall4

Who the hell sees gold mario in mk8 and thinks ohhh NSMB2?


MAARP22

Anyone who is aware of the gold flower power up Theirs a lot of power ups that get referenced in the more recent Mario Kart games through costumes hell even specifically the Mario Galaxy version of the ice flower was a costume for Mario in one of the arcade MK games


LMGall4

I’ve been playing mk8 for 5 years and I have the gold Mario amiibo and never thought about it once


lonkbonk_

metal mario, or as you called it “silver mario” originates from the metal cap in SM64


MAARP22

Silver Mario and Metal Mario are different things Silver Mario comes from MK Home Circuit The Gold Flower turns Luigi silver in NSMB2 and Silver and Gold costumes are available for both Mario and Luigi in MKHC so both would be referencing the Gold Flower


Luigi-Green-Thunder

Every Super Mario Bros. Special item


TORFdot0

Hudsonsoft bee is definitely most obscure power up. But I think the hammer isn't since it's in Donkey kong and Super Mario 3.


Luigi-Green-Thunder

Fair point for the hammer


Bierbart12

I will always remember the hudsonsoft bee. But only because of Mario Party 4


RobloxLover369421

The wing from that one port of the original Mario bros that changes everything to underwater physics for a few seconds


sonic_popsicle

Super Mario Bros Special, the Wing.


TORFdot0

I'd say the bee is a bit more forgotten since it doesn't even do anything except give you points


abibofile

The catchable boomerang from the Japanese e-reader levels of SMB3 on the Game Boy Advance?


Pianostar4

I usually never remember the Rocket Nozzle from Sunshine.


Just-Call-Me-J

Power Flower from SM64DS


Coledog10

I wish it was used more, but I haven't heard about the wearable shell from Mario Bros DS in a long time


Thelastresort37

Forreal the Blue Shell suit was so much fun in that game


BenjaLP211

NSMB


Coledog10

Yeah yeah, you knew what I meant


Megalomanizac

It needs to come back


Coledog10

Maybe they could add it to the WiiU theme if Mario Maker 3 comes out?


i_luv_many_hen_ties

Pretty sure you can use a similar ability in super Mario 3D world


Coledog10

Yeah you could ride in koopa shells, but those were a lot more temporary and contained within those levels


Ninjax3X

Hey don’t you disrespect the Pfario mushroom


Ally2theVally69420

Drug mushrooms fron Yoshis island


BenjaLP211

lol yes i think they were clouds btw


Chugiron

They were white fuzzies that appeared as obstacles in levels


d4n00b

The hammer in smb3


TerribleTom22

What did the hammer even do?


Big-Phase2259

If I'm thinking right it gives Mario the ability to throw hammers in an arc


Inner-Difficulty

That’s the hammer suit. The hammer let’s you break map screen road blocks.


BrazenlyGeek

Not unlike the hammer in The Adventure of Link.


TerribleTom22

I looked it up and the Hammer lets Mario break boulders in the map


-PepeArown-

As a map item, the music box and anchor were both far more obscure. Music boxes let you put enemy blockades to sleep. The anchor could only be obtained in like half of the game’s worlds, and just lets you go to that world’s airship without having to chase after it. Both items are kind of useless, in my opinion.


SpringTrapped1987

I'd say it's either the anchor from SMB3 or the Bee from Super Mario Bros Special. The anchor belongs to an extremely popular game but when's the last time you've seen anyone mention it or acknowledge it's existance? The bee is just extremely obscure.


you_2_cool

I dunno maybe the red star? I mean it's neat but not used much


KappaMazinksy

Probably the Frog suit or cloud that lets you skip a level, barely anyone gives a crap about those.


Jyqoz

Frog suit is so bad it’s memorable


counter_wally

Indeed. It's the only "rare" power up from SMB3 available in Mario Maker 2


-PepeArown-

All my homies used the cloud on 8-fortress.


MotesBro

Maybe none of us can figure it out because none of us can remember...


AmusedChortles

I always forget that the Ball Flower exists.


GreatBeardicus

Oh, that's easy. The most forgettable item is the, uh, you know that one that's like... a thing. Darn, now I can't remember what I was going to say.


TkXKORE

3 up moon. It’s like in 2 spots on two levels in one game ever.


LaktoseYT

Mystery Mushroom, only unlocked via Amiibo, Mario Maker for DS/Wii U


Viewspy67

The boost star from NSMBU


hakan5199

Vanish cap from Mario 64.


JoeySTRIKE_alt

Definitely the most obscure cap from that game but it's not even close to being the least memorable in all of mario


TheGamseum

The anchor from Mario 3

The Dreaded Spring Mushroom


Kurochi185

Tbh I would say it's very unforgettable because it's so infamous for being shit.


Alopex_31

Poison mushroom from lost levels


pirakaplant

To be fair, it made a reappearance in SMM2


GostplaysYT

and super mario 3d land


Key_guy05

The rock variant of the Tanooki Leaf from Super Mario 3D land!

I played some cool levels in MM1 with the weird mushroom. Miss you!

WTF_BROOOO_LOL

Mini mushroom


xXBobHollyXx

Cloud Mushroom. Carrot power up too. Hammer Mario as well.


McCringyassjoe

Do any of you remember the SMB2 coin?


Shadowed_MC

The gun from Mario.


Nok-y

I miss this mushroom


JayNomad2018

I forgot


Impossible_Pickle564

The Mega Mushroom?


Certain_Ring8907

Lucky Star from Super Mario Bros Special


Coldcolor900

heres an interesting one, the rainbow star from super mario galaxy. the reason why its forgettable is because its functionally identical to super stars from other games, which means you forget that its a completely different item.


Acrozz95

The blue shell from NSMB? Well it's not exactly forgetable, more like most people don't know about it


Cuphendy_XD

Does the mario odyssey captures count as power ups?( couse if so it will be the bread)


ImKindaRetarded_

The wearable shell :(


GcubePlayer8w

Pick me up


Stefan0430

idk I forgot


BirbMaster1998

Probably poison mushroom, invisible cap from sm64 is also kind of forgettable but I wouldn't put it at the top of a list


pipopapupupewebghost

Health items from the rpgs


arandomgrape

White Tanookie Suit.


Lastmidnight01

Might be the red star from super mario galaxy, a weird powerup that I sometimes forget it exists.


Wolf14Vargen14

Mario's Van Hellsing costume from the Nintendo Power comics


Chain_Final

If I remember that forgetable character, then ir would stop being the most forgetable character since I remember it so this creates a paradox.


dartboard5

are you talking about power ups or items (i.e pow blocks, springs)? because if we’re counting items it’s definitely the stone block from the mm2 story mode


ApploofTheFloof

No doubt in top ten is the education game they made where Mario needs to be saved by Luigi and he travels across the world learning facts, whatever the title is.


TheLakeEffect_

Good ol’ “Lanky Mario”


Ugmyusernamewastake

Main Series: Invinsibility Leaf from Super Mario 3D Land ​ (not to be confused with Invincibility Bell from Super Mario 3D World) ​ Mario Kart: Double Dash's fireballs (Mario and Luigi's special item) ​ (not to be confused with MK7's onward fire flower


rlw02

Blue Shell from NSMB


Serious_Project_1288

I loved that power up


HighClassPlant

So fun plowing through the entire stage in the shell


Organic_Caregiver186

The mystery mushrooms from smm1


SpongeBobCuddles

Carrot, because its a carrot. I dunno, most Power Ups in the Mario franchise are so diverse, fun, and unique in their own ways that its genuinely hard to pick apart a specific one that is forgettable.


AidynDaGoat

The giant mushroom from wii


pirakaplant

Given that it makes an reappearance in 3DW and MPS, I wouldn't say it's obscure


SMM9673

The Carrot from Mario Land 2 The Rainbow Star from the Galaxy Games The Mega Mushroom from the New Soup series


superNuget

Acorn?


abweegee05

Builder hammer from Mario maker 2


Feisty_Definition_66

Frog suit


Whystar3

P acorn


LueIsBlue101

Fludd. Literally only used in two games one being a fangame


JoeySTRIKE_alt

He was your main tool in Sunshine tho and he is a part of Mario's moveset in Smash, so I wouldn't put Fludd as the least memorable.


MrNoobNubIsBacc

Yeah, Considering Fludd is the basis of Mario Sunshine and Mario Sunshine is cherished and loved by fans, Fludd is for sure not the most forgettable power-up.


BenjaLP211

Nah, it is used in the entirety of sunshine, its not forgettable


Warm_Researcher_5721

The flower from Super Mario Land


MrNoobNubIsBacc

It returned in Super Mario Maker 2, giving it more popularity though.


FluffyPigeon707

Frog


Some_Hat-Wearing_Kid

The Lucky Bell


Particular_Tax_4407

Mini mushroom from the nsmb series?


Yoshi_Kong

Idk but what are the most memorable I’d have to say The shoe Penguin Mystery costume shroom


Diego_Mannn_096

Mystery Mushroom in Mario Maker 1. Also the penguin suit, spring mushroom and Rock mushroom


lonkbonk_

boo mushroom, mario galaxy?


GuineaPigs64

I find it memorable, despite it only being used three times across two games with about 240 levels in total.


lonkbonk_

thats fair enough


ShoulderOk4934

1up in Super Mario 64. Never get hurt, never need em.


JasperWoertman

Chair-mushroom for sure
