Easy Mode is a mode found in certain Mario games that lowers the difficulty level from that of normal gameplay.

History[edit]

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins[edit]

In Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, the player can access Easy Mode by pressing Select Button on the File Select screen. Super Mario will become Small Mario and the words "Easy Mode" will appear in the corner. There are less enemies in levels, and some mini-bosses such as Floating Faces take one hit to be defeated.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

Easy Mode returns in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Here if the player gets a Game Over, they have a choice of trying again in Easy Mode. This mode isn't available in Hard Mode.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam[edit]

The Easy Mode function turned on in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.

An Easy Mode is also present in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, which can be turned on at any time outside of battle in the game. The mode will make Paper Toads much easier to catch along with side-quests being much easier. It also lowers all POW and DEF stats for enemies and bosses (but doesn't affect HP or Speed) and makes Mario, Luigi and Paper Mario stronger, thereby making battles much easier, although the trio earns five less EXP from battles and aren't able to complete Expert Challenges.

In-game description[edit]

  • "Turning Easy Mode on makes your characters stronger and enemies easier to defeat. However, you won't be able to complete Expert Challenges in this mode."
