Bumpers are new objects in Super Mario Maker introduced in the software update released on December 22, 2015. They can be created by shaking a Grinder in editing mode. Their appearance resembles that of a donut with eyes. When Mario jumps on one from above, it can bounce him higher, having a similar function to Trampolines and Note Blocks. If Mario makes contact with one from the side or below, it bounces Mario away, serving more as a hindrance than an aid.
In the Super Mario Bros. theme, Bumpers are striped light and dark green, with eyes similar to that of Mr. Eraser. In the Super Mario Bros. 3 theme, they are checkered green and white, similar to the Jump Blocks from New Super Mario Bros. Wii and with the same type of eyes. In the Super Mario World theme, they are white with pink diamonds and beady eyes. In the New Super Mario Bros. U theme, they are yellow with orange stars, resembling Lemmy's rubber balls from the New Super Mario Bros. series, also with beady eyes.
Even though Bumpers first appear in Super Mario Maker, similar objects appear in New Super Mario Bros. in underwater levels.
