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.
Carrot-like objects known as Elevator Platforms appear in Super Mario Advance, although not in the original Super Mario Bros. 2 and other releases of said game. They are disguised as short, hill-like Semisolid Platforms, but when they are landed on, they bounce upward, which can help Mario and company reach higher places. 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.
