The player obtained three Stars and received 5-UP.

Cards are collectibles found at the goal in Super Mario Bros. 3. The player acquires one out of a roulette every time a course is cleared; the pictures depicted are Mushrooms, Flowers and Stars. Once three are collected, the player is given a 1-Up prize: one if they do not match, two if Mushrooms, three if Flowers, and five if Stars.

Cards can also be obtained via the 2 Player Game, specifically upon initiating the Mario Bros. competitive game. Hitting the other player from the floor below like an enemy will shake a card out of them, which will proceed to bounce around until it is reclaimed, stolen, or lost.

Cards also appear with a different function in the N-Mark Spade Panel. They show various items in a card-matching setup, and matching two cards will automatically add that item to the inventory. Flipping two unlike cards twice or getting all 18 correct will end the diversion.

In Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, cards from the end of levels are renamed panels in-game; however, the ones from the N-Mark Spade Panel mini-game are still referred to as cards.
