Frog Mario is an alternate form of Mario and Luigi that can be attained by acquiring a Frog Suit in the game Super Mario Bros. 3. Frog Mario can swim faster than regular Mario, allowing him to overcome currents in his path. Controlling Mario while swimming is also easier, as he can stop instantly, in a single spot in the water, and swim in any direction. However, Frog Mario's walking and running ability is greatly decreased. In fact, Frog Mario can only hop on the ground like a frog. As such, Frog Mario's jumping ability is greater than regular Mario's. Also, Frog Mario can run when carrying an item such as a Koopa Shell. It will also prevent Big Bertha from eating the player.
