First appearance Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (1992)
Variant of Pipe Fist

Mechanical fists[1][2] are variants of Pipe Fists that Mario faces in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. If Mario steps on the wrong trigger panel in the Mario's castle level, a giant fist trap in the resemblance of Wario's glove comes crashing down, pounding the floor with spiked brass knuckles at immense speed (although it is slower on Easy Mode). Mario has to get past three of these traps in total in order to reach Wario and rid him from Mario's castle.

In the Kodansha manga, a mechanical fist is depicted as the literal fist of a giant-sized Wario.

  • If Mario jumps over the center trigger panels in the areas with these enemies, the trap is never triggered and he can walk on by. He must jump over the center trigger panel three consecutive times in order to avoid confrontation with all three of these fists outright.
