A Carrot[1][2] (alternatively lowercase),[3] also referred to as a Magic Carrot,[4] is an item that appears in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. It transforms Mario into Bunny Mario, but Wario also uses it to transform into Bunny Wario.[5]

Carrot's designs in Super Mario-kun. In the anticipation and the first chapter of the Super Mario Land 2 arc, it has no limbs, which it gains in the following chapters alongside bigger eyes and a different "hairstyle."

A sentient Carrot appears in Super Mario-kun, first appearing in the last chapter of Volume 6, where she helps Mario defeat a Ragumo and Bopping Toady. When the Super Mario Land 2 arc properly starts in the next volume, Carrot, turned into a proper character, joins Mario on his adventure, giving him the Bunny Mario powers whenever he touches her. In personality, she resembles Luigi from the previous story arc, in that she is more reasonable and smarter than Mario, always getting angry at him whenever he does something foolish. During the final battle, Carrot gets hypnotized by Wario and turns evil, granting him the Bunny powers, but is later freed. More carrots appear in later chapters and volumes, but they are just normal, non-anthropomorphic carrots.

Carrots also make a brief appearance in Mario Kirby Meisaku Video. After Mario crashes his kart during his pursuit of the mysterious thief W, who was trying to escape in his plane, the Bulldog, Mario finds a garden full of Carrots, eats one, and transforms into Bunny Mario.

Carrots appear in the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft, replacing the traditional Minecraft carrots.

Carrots also appear in Mario Party: The Top 100, replacing the generic carrots seen in the minigame Rockin' Raceway.

A crate of carrots, retaining their Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins design, is toppled over during the evacuation of Toad Town in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
