Objective summary
Mario in the Fire, Bro! challenge

Fire, Bro! is a Special challenge in the Challenge Mode of New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. Its name is a play on Fire Bro, the enemy that appears in this challenge. The difficulty of the challenge is ranked at one star.


The challenge takes place in a tower, presumably Crushing-Cogs Tower because of the color scheme, but with the Enemy Course music playing. The player must survive up to 50 seconds of Fire Bros. tossing fireballs while remaining on a single block on a bed of spikes. If the player is hit by a fireball or touches the spikes before 15 seconds have elapsed, the challenge is failed.
