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

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 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.

Carrots can be found in the freezer during the Chef Soulfflé fight in Luigi's Mansion 3.
