A Boombox in Super Mario Odyssey
First appearance Super Mario Odyssey (2017)

Boomboxes are objects that appear in Super Mario Odyssey. They appear in most kingdoms, usually around outdoor Crazy Cap stores where they play the shop's theme. As exceptions, one Boombox is found on the roof of one building in Tostarena Town, and another is found on a large rock in the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario can interact with the Boomboxes by jumping on top of them or throwing Cappy at them, which makes them play a short clip of the first Bowser battle theme, along with Bowser's evil laugh and Princess Peach's scream, before reverting to the song they were playing. After the player beats the game, the Boomboxes play the Japanese version of "Break Free (Lead the Way)" ("Jump Up, Super Star!" in the Metro Kingdom and Mushroom Kingdom) when hit instead. In the Metro Kingdom, a Boombox found on a rooftop pool plays a piano arrangement of the Ground Theme from Super Mario World. Mario also dances to the music playing from a Boombox if he stays idle near one.
