An egg is an item found in the Super Mario franchise. In most games they appear in, they are a helpful item or a hindering item depending on the game and the time.
Donkey Kong franchise
Donkey Kong Jr.
Eggs first appear in Donkey Kong Jr. where they are occasionally dropped by Nitpickers. If Donkey Kong Jr. comes into contact with one, he loses a life.
Donkey Kong Country series
In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Squawks the Parrot can spit yellow eggs. By doing this, he can easily knock out enemies that are in his way.
Giant eggs can be found in the levels Krow's Nest and Kreepy Krow of Donkey Kong Country 2. Krow and Kreepy Krow drop these in an attempt to hit the Kongs. In the battle with Krow, some of the eggs can be picked up and thrown at the boss; this is the only way to defeat the giant vulture.
Pinball / VS. Pinball
Three eggs appear in scene B in Pinball and VS. Pinball. If the ball touches an egg, it hatches into a chick. If all three eggs hatch into chicks, an up-post appears in between the flippers.
In the SNES version of Wario's Woods, Creature Eggs are items that can be achieved whenever Toad performs a "breakfast" combo move in the vs. mode. The breakfast move is performed whenever Toad clears multiple rows/columns/diagonals of monsters at once with one bomb. At this point of time, a falling egg will appear on the side of Toad's opponent. Upon hitting the ground, this Creature Egg would hatch into any type of monster of varied colors. After the Creature Egg hatches, an additional row of monsters of one color will rain on his opponent. Whenever Toad performs a three way breakfast combo will send two eggs instead of one. While the eggs can be prevented from hatching, it is difficult to do so as it must be done by matching an entire row of monsters with the color of the egg.
Super Smash Bros. series
In Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee, eggs make an appearance as an item. They can be thrown at opponents, or eaten for health.
|Paper Mario description||An egg of unknown origin. Restores 5 HP.|
In Paper Mario, Eggs restore five HP, and are quite rare in the game. An Egg appears when checking the grass in the first area of Mt. Rugged where there is a train station, and it also appears by pulling a vine in Jade Jungle, in an area behind the Raven Statue. Eggs also appear in the kitchen of Peach's Castle as a special item and are used to make the Special Strawberry Cake for Gourmet Guy during the Peach intermission after Chapter 4.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario replace the Egg with the Mystic Egg and Big Egg respectively, which serve the same purpose, although the Big Egg heals 12 HP rather than 5.

Eggs appear in the Game Boy Advance version of Mario Bros. included with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and the Super Mario Advance series. They are a random item a player can find from within a garbage can. When thrown, it will break and reveal one of three items inside: a coin, Heart or Starman. Eggs in this appearance share the same sprite as Birdo's Eggs.
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga / Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions
Eggs appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake as battle gimmicks of Birdo. Partnered with Popple, she may occasionally inhale him, and spit out multiple egg capsules in his stead. One contains Popple, the others contain pink Bob-omb-like enemies that dash through a random bro. The eggs break after some hits, releasing Popple, and allowing him to be attacked again.
Mario Superstar Baseball
In Mario Superstar Baseball, an egg is a purchasable item in the shop in Challenge Mode, which costs 200 coins and grants Yoshi the ability to use his special hits and pitches.
