History[edit]

Super Mario 3D Land[edit]

The Tail Tree losing its Super Leaves in a rainstorm.

Sometime before the events of Super Mario 3D Land, one night, a huge rainstorm blows all the Super Leaves off of the Tail Tree (while Bowser laughs in the background).

Later on, Mario and three Toads (Red, Yellow, and Blue) go looking for the princess. Eventually, they discover that she is missing and that the Super Leaves are missing. Yellow Toad notices a hovering letter near the Tail Tree, and the group of four go to investigate. Mario grabs and opens the letter, and a picture of Bowser holding Princess Peach with Super Leaves flying in the background pops out. The message shocks the three Toads and Mario, and immediately, Mario and the three Toads run to save Princess Peach. Throughout his adventure, Mario receives more letters about Peach's predicament and learns that Bowser is utilizing the Super Leaves that he and the Koopa Troop took from the Tail Tree to strengthen his armies, even creating False Bowsers. After Bowser's eventual defeat, Mario and the three Toads save Princess Peach and, using their Tanooki powers, bring Peach back to her castle, where the Tail Tree has sprouted new Super Leaves.
