- This article is about Mario's Special Shot in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. For the custom variant for Bowser's Fire Breath special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, see Fire Breath § Super Smash Bros. series.
Mario initiates the move by lighting the ball on fire and dribbling it in a vertical M shape. Once initiated, Mario throws the ball with one hand towards the hoop with red flames trailing behind it. If shot from inside the 3-point line, the ball lands in the hoop with a fiery explosion.
If shot from outside the 3-point line, the visuals do not change, but a teammate needs to grab the ball and dunk it in.
