Statue Leaves are items only found in Super Mario 3D Land. When Mario or Luigi grabs a Statue Leaf, he becomes his Tanooki form, but wears a scarf of his corresponding color, and regains the ability to transform into a statue instead of doing a Ground Pound, thus avoiding enemies (which cannot damage him) and hazards. This makes it similar to the Tanooki Suit from Super Mario Bros. 3, but without the ability to fly or transform on the ground.
This power-up first appears in Special 1-1, replacing the Super Leaf in the Special Worlds thereafter.
