This article is about the power-ups found in different games. For the space in Mario Party 3, see Power-up Space. For the status effect that means "power up", see POW-Up. For the move from Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, see Special Skill (Mario & Luigi series).

Power-ups are unique items that give special abilities to characters that use them. Most of their effects make defeating enemies or exploring levels easier. Below is a list of power-ups, including a selection of their sprites and artwork, and a list of their respective appearances in the Mario franchise. While other characters, such as Luigi, may be able to use many of these power-ups identically, the description for power-ups that Mario can use only describes their effect on Mario. The article for each power-up provides more information, including a full list of which characters can use it.
