This is a list of glitches featured in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. Though most new glitches apply to the new side mode, Bowser's Fury, several glitches present in Super Mario 3D World return.[1][2] For a list of glitches found in the original game, see here. Also note that all glitch names are conjectural unless otherwise noted.


Clawswipe Colosseum Out of Bounds

It is possible to enter a small out of bounds area in Clawswipe Colosseum by having Mario simply jump and clip into a specific corner at the front of the colosseum.[3]

Duplicated Cat Shine

Mario may view a Cat Shine from the side or a more specific angle to occasionally see it overlap, indicating two.[3]

Duplicated Propeller Box

Sometimes Mario receives two Propeller Boxes rather than one, this being visible as Mario runs in a random manner.[3]

Dive With Any Item

It is possible to view a diving animation for Mario in any power-up form. As Cat Mario or Lucky Cat Mario, the player must have Mario dive right after selecting a different item from Item Storage. If successful, Mario will receive the item shortly after beginning his dive, with the diving animation continuing regardless of Mario's new power-up form. Most likely due to the appearance of the Cat Suit, Mario's hands appear somewhat though noticeably larger during this time.[3]

Edge Stuttering

If Mario Ground Pounds on the very edge of a button which triggers a battle, he will repeatedly be stuttering until the battle begins.[4]

Frame Perfect Transformation Cat Shine

If Mario collects a Cat Shine as soon as he begins transforming, he will be shown frozen in the air instead of doing his regular pose.[5]

Fury Bowser Stuck

It is possible to temporarily freeze Fury Bowser during a battle as Giga Cat Mario. The player must lure Fury Bowser onto one side of the Slipskate Slope island and have him perform his Ground Pound attack before heading to the other side. Eventually, Fury Bowser awakens and attempts rolling toward Mario, though becomes stuck on the bridge. This continues until Mario simply lures him away to a different location.[3]

Goomba on Air

If a Goomba from a Goomba Tower lands on Bowser Jr., it will remain in the air for a short period of time before falling again.[6]

Hit the Rabbit Without Hitting it

Extremely rarely, Mario might catch a rabbit while he is far away from it.[7]

Ice Momentum Glitch

As the ice momentum glitch returns in both the main story and the side mode, Mario may crouch while moving repeatedly on an icy surface to gain rapid momentum, allowing him to launch across far distances. Performing this with a Propeller Box even causes the box to disappear from its original location.[3]

Infinite Super Star Music

If Mario takes damage by standing in the black goo in Bowser's Fury, then collects a Super Star while still standing in it, the invincibility music will play non-stop while Mario will not actually get the power-up.[8]

Missing an Item

If Mario selects an item from Item Storage right before collecting a Cat Shine, the power-up drops rather than following him.[3]

Music Stops Suddenly

If Mario exits a bonus room, there is a chance that the music may stop playing completely.[9] The music will play again when he collects a Cat Shine.[10]

Plessie Makes a Splash

It is possible to jump repeatedly and quickly while on Plessie and while rubbing up against certain walls to splash frantically.[3]

Teleporting Rabbit

If Mario tries to make Bowser Jr. teleport into a rabbit from a far distance and misses it, the rabbit will teleport continously until Bowser Jr. goes away from it.[11]
