Cherries[1][2] appear in the Super Mario franchise as items.


Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic / Super Mario Bros. 2[edit]

Cherries appear in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, Super Mario Bros. 2, and the latter's Game Boy Advance version as collectible items. Many Cherries appear throughout Subcon, in every level. When five Cherries are collected, a Starman floats from the ground. In the remake, the character will say "Lucky!" each time one is collected, and a chime will play upon grabbing every fifth one. They also appear in the slot machines of the same game. When a player lines up even one of them, they receive extra lives (a 1-Up for one in the first slot, 2-Up if the first two slots have cherries, and 5-Up for all three; this is changed to a 3-Up maximum in the remakes).


Cherries appear in Yoshi after the player clears levels 19 through 21 of the B-Type game, rewarding the player 900 points.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Cherries appear in the Super Smash Bros. series in the background of the Mushroom Kingdom II stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Mario Party 4[edit]

Cherries appear in Mario Party 4 as a potential fruit on Bowser's list in the minigame Fruits of Doom.
