Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Double Mario

Double Cherries first appear in Super Mario 3D World. When characters grab this item, a clone of themselves appears. The clones keep the original characters' state (for example, Fire Mario gets a clone that also has a Fire Flower), power-ups affect all of them, and they all move identically. The clones can be used to activate certain switches and platforms. There can be up to five clones at one time. If players hit question blocks that contain Double Cherries when five doubles exist, a coin will come out instead. The clones disintegrate if harmed, and they all disappear when the player grabs the Goal Pole, awarding 1,000 points per clone. The players can also ground-pound on other players to steal their double power.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker[edit]

Double Cherries also appear in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, acting just like they did in Super Mario 3D World.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Double Cherry appears in Mario Kart Tour as a badge icon for all challenges pertaining to infant characters.

  • The Double Cherry is actually the result of a mistake made by a staff member with the placement tool, which created two player Marios. The staff thought it was a good idea, and decided to put it in the game.[1]
  • The Double Cherry is the only power-up in Super Mario 3D World where the character who picks it up actually speaks, rather than making a noise, as in the case of Cat Mario.
  • In Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a Double Cherry can be seen on the redesigned Tropical Grocery logos.
