History[edit]

Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario World[edit]

The result of using a Feather.

The Cape Feather is introduced in Super Mario World. As Cape Mario or Cape Luigi, the player can hover in the air, similar to the Super Leaf's effect in Super Mario Bros. 3. The flight of the Cape Feather, however, lasts as long as the player keeps hovering.

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3[edit]

Additionally, the Cape Feather is available as a secret item in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3. By scanning in the appropriate card on the e-Reader, the player can upload a Cape Feather into their inventory to use in the game. Cape Mario plays just like he does in Super Mario World, including being able to defeat enemies like Dry Bones.

Super Mario 64 DS[edit]

The Cape Feather, along with other power-ups from Super Mario World, makes a cameo appearance in the Mario Slot and Super Mario Slot minigames of Super Mario 64 DS. If the player lined up three Cape Feathers in a row, they would receive five times the number of coins they bet. It also replaces the Wing Cap from the original 64.

Super Mario World TV Show[edit]

The Cape Feather also appears in the Super Mario World TV show, where it is used in episodes such as "King Scoopa Koopa" and "The Night Before Cave Christmas." Mario is the only character to don the cape in the series.

Super Mario Kart[edit]

The "Feather" (as it is referred to in this game) is also found used in Super Mario Kart for the SNES as an item a driver can obtain from Item Boxes throughout the race courses. The Feather grants the user the ability to roughly perform a Spin Jump twice as high as a regular driver can. This can be useful for jumping over barriers, as a quick and easy shortcut, and for jumping over enemy projectiles.

Additionally, while it did not appear in the final game, in the beta version of Mario Kart 64, a Cape Feather was one of the items.
