The Fire Koopa Clown Car (known as the Fire Junior Clown Car in the New Super Mario Bros. U style) is an object in Super Mario Maker (in version 1.30 or later), Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Mario Maker 2, produced by shaking a regular Koopa Clown Car. Its exterior shell is golden yellow, its propeller is red, it has a flame design on its cheeks, and its mouth takes a circular form. This variant acts similarly to the normal Koopa Clown Car, but the player is able to shoot fireballs when riding in it, in a similar manner to Fire Mario. The car shoots fireballs horizontally from near its mouth. Unlike Fire Mario's fireballs, these do not fall, but will continue moving horizontally until it encounters a block or an enemy or simply remains off the screen for too long. If the player holds the button, it will shoot larger fireballs that can destroy blocks. If Mario has a Fire Flower equipped, it will shoot two extra balls which will not take the same path as the main one but will move diagonally, respectively up and down. If Mario has a Big Mushroom, the clown car will have a Peach design on it, shoot a fireball capable of destroying a block, and gain the ability to shoot a charged flame that will destroy all the blocks and enemies in its path without stopping (this also works if Mario is riding a big Goomba's Shoe or the stiletto version). If an enemy or item is riding it, it randomly shoots fireballs while moving like with a regular Koopa Clown Car. If a giant-sized enemy is riding it, it will shoot larger fireballs capable of destroying blocks.
