Capture is a unique ability Mario gains in the upcoming title Super Mario Odyssey. His newfound hat friend, Cappy, grants him this power somewhere in the Cap Kingdom, where he is presumably found. When Cappy is thrown at an enemy, creature, or object, such as a Goomba, Mario is able to take control of said enemy, creature, or object. This allows Mario to use new abilities, many of which he has never previously had, and collect Power Moons which would normally be out of his reach. When capturing something, that thing will gain Mario's hat and mustache, as well as his blue irises (if it has eyes). Mario can also "de-capture" his host at will, stunning them for a while. However, if an enemy or other being wears a hat or something similar on its head, Mario can only capture it after knocking the hat by jumping onto it or throwing Cappy.

The following is a list of everything Mario can capture (and their known abilities), as has been evidenced so far:
