A flamethrower (alternatively spelled flame thrower), also described with other generic terms such as fire jet or flame spout, is a mechanical, indestructible object found in Super Mario 64 and its remake. The appearance of a flamethrower varies depending on the level:
About every three seconds, a flamethrower shoots a stream of fire from its center. If hit by the flames, the player's character will lose three life points and run around in a panic, making it difficult for the player to control them. If the character jumps repeatedly while they are on fire, their movement will be limited, and they may only take two points of damage.
