Acorn Trees[1] are a type of tree introduced in New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, with a large one being the landmark of Acorn Plains. The trees grow Super Acorns, the item that transforms Mario into Flying Squirrel Mario. The larger Acorn Tree's base itself resembles two acorns.


Super Mario series[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe[edit]

In the beginning of New Super Mario Bros. U, Bowser and the Koopalings invade Peach's Castle, and the former throws Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, and Blue Toad far away into Acorn Plains, where the four crash into the large Acorn Tree, causing many Super Acorns to fly away to various parts of the land.

In the Acorn Plains map, many smaller Acorn Trees can be seen. There are no differences between these and the larger one except that the bases of the smaller trees do not look like acorns.

The large Acorn Tree can be seen in the intro, the Acorn Plains map, Acorn Plains Way (or Waddlewing Warning! in New Super Luigi U), briefly in Tilted Tunnel/Crooked Cavern, and finally in Spine-Tingling Spine Coaster/Spine Coaster Connections.

Super Mario Run[edit]


Regular Acorn Trees appear in Super Mario Run as kingdom decorations. Each can be purchased for 300 coins in the shop or obtained at random in Remix 10 mode. The item's description explains that multiple Acorn Trees grow in Acorn Plains, which aligns with backgrounds in New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U that depict multiple smaller acorn trees.


The large Acorn Tree appears in the premade world for the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft.

Unused appearances[edit]

Super Mario Maker[edit]

The large Acorn Tree was going to appear in the background at the beginning of New Super Mario Bros. U-style ground levels in Super Mario Maker, as seen in the game's E3 2014 trailer.[2] It was removed from the game prior to its official release, despite ground levels still taking place in Acorn Plains.
