Super Mario series
Super Mario Bros.
These currents also appear in Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, again only in water levels and behaving exactly the same way.
Super Mario Bros. 3
Currents appear in Super Mario Bros. 3, now coming out of Warp Pipes and visibly showing a bubble jet. Again, they only appear in water levels, where they push Mario in the direction of the bubble jet. Frog Mario can fight the currents by pressing to do his fast swim; in World 4-4 and World 6-9, this can be exploited to find some hidden bonus areas.
Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS
In Super Mario 64 and its remake, a huge exit is opened for the Bowser's submarine in the second area of Dire, Dire Docks after Bowser in the Fire Sea is completed. If the player approaches, they are sucked into the hole, leading them to the Castle Grounds.
New Super Mario Bros.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Currents return in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, behaving exactly the same as in previous games.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Currents reappear in New Super Mario Bros. 2 behaving the same as in past games. In this game, currents are no longer limited to protruding from Warp Pipes, with some naturally occurring as well, as in Super Mario Bros. World 1-5's second Star Coin features a Super Mario Bros.-style downward current over a pit.
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U
Currents are featured again in New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, behaving identical to previous games. Like with New Super Mario Bros. 2, some currents occur naturally, such as the returning downwards currents featured in Tropical Refresher and Urchin Reef Romp.
Wario Land series
Wario Land II
Wario Land 3
In Wario Land 3, currents appear in many levels, notably Bank of the Wild River, The Steep Canyon, and Beneath the Waves. One in the first of these must be clogged by the boss Pesce in order to continue.
Mario Kart series
Mario Kart 7
In Mario Kart 7, currents appear as obstacles that push racers around in Wario Shipyard and Piranha Plant Slide. In the case of the latter, one such current allows the player to access the Dash Panel over the last Piranha Plant before the Glide Ramp.
Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Currents also appear as obstacles in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, where they are featured in some underwater levels. They are most prominently featured in Current Capers, where some currents in the level expand and contract. Dixie Kong is capable of fighting the currents with her hair spin.
Mario Party 10
