Hata Mario (ハタマリオ, Flag Mario) is a transformation that Mario comes across in Super Mario-kun volume 1.

In the hypothetical Super Mario Bros. 5, Mario learns that the flying enemies now use signal/wind flags (one red and one white) instead of wings. Mario can use them as well by obtaining Hata for himself. While transforming into Hata Mario, Mario gets surrounded by different national flags.

Mario uses the Hata to then reach a pair of flying enemies and defeats them by ordering them to imitate his gesture, raising one flag, then the other, until they cannot keep the pace anymore (similar to the Mario Party minigame Shy Guy Says), falling to the ground. Mario uses this transformation until he comes across a wall that does not let him skip the level by flying.
