- “It is written that Flower Power (FP) rules the world.”
- —Frog Sage, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Flower Points (FP; also known as Flower Power) are a stat in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and the first two Paper Mario games, and are similar to Magic Points or Mana Points in other role-playing games such as Final Fantasy. Mario and his party use FP to perform special moves.
In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Flower Points can be used for attacks such as Mario's Super Jump attack and Mallow's Thought Peek. Mario's party has a combined supply of Flower Points. The maximum of Flower Points is not raised by a Level up as in the Paper Mario series. Instead, Mario's party has to collect items such as Flower Jars and Flower Boxes to increase their total FP rating. While adventuring, there are several ways to replenish the party's FP count. There are a variety of syrups, items which restore FP. Flower Points are also restored when Mario sleeps in an Inn or when he finds a Mushroom in a Treasure chest, which refill the party's FP supply and HP, or Health Points.
In the first two games in Paper Mario series, Flower Points return and are used for many of Mario's and his partners' attacks. Mario can choose to increase his maximum FP when leveling up. Items like Honey Syrups, Maple Syrups, and Jammin' Jellies recover FP. In Super Paper Mario, Flower Points are only seen within the Flipside Arcade, serving as an item to briefly enhance the player's abilities in the Mansion Patrol and Tilt Island minigames. Additionally Happy Flowers are introduced, with a similar appearance but different function.
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, Bros. Points replace Flower Points, which are used to perform Bros. Attacks, the series' special moves. In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Bros. Points are renamed "Special Points" that are used to perform Special Attacks, though this was reverted in the remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey.
