Item Needed Carrot, Bunny Hood
Power(s) Given Slow descent, fly, hop
First Appearance Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (1992)

Bunny Mario is a form Mario can become in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins by touching a Carrot. Bunny Mario has rabbit ears coming out of his hat. When Mario is in the air, holding A Button can slow his descent, and repeatedly mashing it can lead to a quasi-fluttering of the ears which can keep him level in the air as he proceeds through the level. Also, holding A Button while on the ground causes Mario to hop continuously. Bunny Mario also lacks the ability to Spin Jump. In the second part of the final battle of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Wario becomes Bunny Wario and uses the same powers as Bunny Mario to battle Mario.

Bunny Mario appears in Mario Kirby Meisaku Video, a Japanese video starring Mario and Kirby. Mario uses his Rabbit form to fight Wario and his monoplane, the Bulldog.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, players could pick up the Bunny Hood item, and gain a rabbit's ears, after that the player could jump higher and could run faster. When Mario wears it, he looks like Bunny Mario.

  • Bunny Mario could be parallel to Raccoon Mario, as they are both mammal-based power-ups that enable flight.
