Effect on player

Turns user into Bunny Mario.

A Carrot[1][2] (or carrot[3]), also known as Bunny Ears[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.

A carrot first appeared in volume 6 of Super Mario-Kun. Unlike most items, this carrot talks and plays a bigger role.

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 also appear in Super Mario Advance (although not in the original Super Mario Bros. 2 and other remakes of said game) as platforms that would bounce up out of hills and help Mario and company reach higher lands. They only appear in Worlds 1-1 and 1-3.

Carrots reappear in Mario Sports Superstars as one of the foods in Horse Racing mode.

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

  • In a preview for Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, the gliding power-up was described as a winged "Cap" rather than the Carrot, and the screenshot was blacked out.[6] It is possible that the design was decided later in development.
  • In the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack in Minecraft, the traditional Minecraft carrots take on their look from the Mario titles.
