Double Mario is a form of Mario obtained by obtaining a Double Cherry. Unlike most forms of Mario, his physical appearance does not change when he becomes Double Mario, but instead gains a copy of himself that copies his every move.
Super Mario series
Super Mario 3D World / Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury
Double Mario makes its first appearance in Super Mario 3D World, and reappears in its Nintendo Switch port exclusively in the Super Mario 3D World mode. The player controls all of the Marios simultaneously. The clone can be separated by ramps, ledges, and other obstacles. Double Mario can be stacked with other power-ups, allowing the clones to use whatever power the player currently is using. If the character or one of the clones gets a different power-up from the one they are using at the moment, all of them are affected. If Mario gets another Double Cherry in this form, more clones will be added, to a maximum of five clones per player. If a character Ground Pounds on another player's clone, then that clone will transform into that character's clone. The clones have no physical difference from the original, unless the original is wearing a crown, or a reserve item is used, because it will come out from the original character.
If a clone is damaged, falls down a pit, or is off-screen for too long, it will disappear. There is no need to keep track of the original, as the last clone standing after being attacked, regardless of the player's position, will end up being the original and will take normal damage from then on; thus the clones act as protection for the player. If the farthest clone is trailing behind the group, it will speed up to reach the pack.
Bowser obtains this form as Meowser during the second phase of the final battle. Like the other character's doubles, his doubles have no physical difference between each other. However, Meowser's doubles move independently from one another.
The Double Mario power originated when a member of the Super Mario 3D World development team accidentally placed two player-controlled Marios in a level. When the supervisors saw this, they liked it and decided to keep it in the game.
