Apples in the Super Mario franchise are fruits with a variety of uses throughout their appearances.


Super Mario Bros. Print World[edit]

Apples in Super Mario Bros. Print World are included within the "Ruler & Apple" border.


Apples in Yoshi resemble the fruits from Super Mario World, and they appear after the player clears levels 6 and 7 of the B-Type game, rewarding 300 points.

Yoshi's Story[edit]

Apples in Yoshi's Story are the favorite fruit of Red Yoshi and Pink Yoshi, along with melons, and a part of the Super Happy Tree. If any colored Yoshi eats 30 apples in any level, a picture of an apple will appear behind him and sway back and forth.

Mario's Time Machine[edit]

The famous apple used by Isaac Newton in Mario's Time Machine was stolen by Bowser to his museum. Mario manages to return the apple to 1687 so that it can properly fall for Newton, allowing him to first speculate on the concept of gravity.

Wario Land series[edit]

Apples in the Wario Land series can turn Wario can turn into Fat Wario if he eats one thrown to him by an Appleby, in Wario Land 3, or a Ringosukī, in Wario Land 4. Large apple monsters called Bigs appear in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3.

Apples in Paper Mario are a cheap item appearing only in Boo's Mansion. One is able to find Apples by simply Spin Jumping on various crates in the right room of the first floor of the mansion. They heal five HP, and they are one of the ingredients used to make Apple Pies, the other being Cake Mix.

Apples can be used to make the following recipes:

Super Paper Mario[edit]

Apples in Super Paper Mario now appear as Red Apples. More variations of them are introduced, including the taboo Black Apple (which wakes up Princess Peach); the luscious but cursed Golden Apple; the mustache-inducing Yellow Apple; the fruit-transforming Pink Apple; and the shrinking Blue Apple. All apples in this game simply restore five HP, except for the Black Apple, which restores only one when used on a playable character; the above ailments are induced only when they are given to a non-playable character. The more-useful Primordial Fruit introduced earlier in Super Paper Mario also slightly resembles that game's apples, although the two items' exact relations are unknown.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

An apple in WarioWare: Touched! is used by Dr. Crygor in the prologue of his stage to demonstrate his recent Tri-phonic Undulating Nanobot Automaton. The core converts into an apple after the demonstration. However, when Dr. Crygor enters the compartment of the TUNA, it closes on him along with the apple. This results in Dr. Crygor being merged with the apple, upgrading him.

Yoshi Topsy-Turvy[edit]

Apples in Yoshi Topsy-Turvy are what Bowser transforms the Egglings into when they fly to Yoshi's Island after the Koopa Troop's attack on their homeland. The Spirit Who Loves Cuteness, a friend of the Egglings, is dumbfounded and enlists Yoshi to seek the apples and eat them, which restores the Egglings to their initial forms. The apples in this game are red and green, and, while the two colors of apple can be found doing anything regardless of any kind of coloration code, green ones typically stay in one spot and most red apples glide downward on parachutes.

Yoshi Touch & Go[edit]

Apples in Yoshi Touch & Go can each be eaten by Yoshi to give him an egg.

Mario Sports Mix[edit]

Apples in Mario Sports Mix are objects that can be fed to Petey Piranha in the party game Feed Petey, and are worth 30 points each.

Yoshi's Woolly World[edit]

Red apple slices in Yoshi's Woolly World appear in Bonus Games.

Yoshi's Crafted World[edit]

Apples in Yoshi's Crafted World are objects that can appear after hitting a Time Cloud, and if Yoshi eats them all within the time limit, a Smiley Flower appears. There are also costumes based on red, yellow, and green apples that Yoshi can wear. While the red and yellow ones are gained from Acorn Forest, the green one is gained from Shadowville.
