A Rocket launching, as in the Super Mario All-Stars version of Super Mario Bros. 2.

The Rocket[1][2] is an item in Super Mario Bros. 2. It can be randomly plucked from the ground, just like Vegetables, and acts as the "door" to the next level, taking Mario, Luigi, Toad or Princess Peach upwards. After a certain height, the player's character jumps out of it, and it explodes shortly afterwards. It only appears in Worlds 4 and 7 of the game. In the Super Mario-Kun adaption, Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Toad defeat Clawgrip with a rocket.

It also appears in Yoshi's Island DS where Yoshi goes inside a hut and comes out of a launch pad. It appears in Level 5-4 The Fort of Moltz the Very Goonie, and Level 5-8 At Last, Bowser's Castle!.

Rockets make their latest appearance in Super Mario 3D World. After defeating Meowser in World Bowser, the Sprixie Princesses will build a rocket in World 1 leading to World Star (World 9) in space. Rockets are also appeared at the end of the World Star (World 9) and World Flower (World 11), which leads to the next world after the players have met the requirements.

A Bros. Attack for Mario in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, called Rocket Blast, involves Mario and Luigi using a rocket to attack enemies with.
