Effect on player

When Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, or Toad collects five Cherries, an invincibility-granting Starman floats from the ground.

A Cherry[1][2] is a special item found in Super Mario Bros. 2. When Mario, Luigi, Peach, or Toad collects five Cherries, an invincibility-granting Starman floats from the ground. Cherries appear in abundance in Subcon, and many can be found in every level. In the GBA 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 make a minor appearance in Yoshi, after the player clears levels 19 through 21 of the B-Type game, rewarding the player 900 points.

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