Flower Points (FP; also known as Flower Power) are a stat in Mario RPG games, and are similar to Magic Points or Mana Points in other RPG games such as Final Fantasy. Mario and his party use FP to perform special moves.
Flower Points first appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, where they can be used for attacks such as Mario's Super Jump attack and Mallow's Psychopath. Mario's party has a combined supply of Flower Points. The maximum of Flower Points is not raised by a Level Up as in the Paper Mario series. Instead, Mario's party has to collect items such as Flower Jars and Flower Boxes to increase their total FP rating. While adventuring, there are several ways to replenish the party's FP count. There are a variety of syrups, items which restore FP. Flower Points are also restored when Mario sleeps in an Inn or when he finds a Mushroom in a Treasure Chest, which will refill the party's FP supply and HP, or Health Points.
In the Paper Mario series, Flower Points returned and were used for many of Mario's and his partners' attacks. Mario can choose to increase his maximum FP when leveling up. Items like Honey Syrups, Maple Syrups, and Jammin' Jellies recover FP. Though they were absent in Super Paper Mario, Happy Flowers have the exact same appearances as they do in the first two Paper Mario games.
Solely in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Bros. Points replaced Flower Points. However, in the third installment, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, they are called Special Points.
