Mario flying into the air to perform a Mega Strike.

A Mega Strike is a strong shot in Mario Strikers Charged. It is a much stronger counterpart of Super Mario Strikers's Super Strike. To perform this move, players hold the B Button to charge until a meter appears. Through proper timing, a player determines the number of balls as the meter swings right. When the meter moves back towards the left, proper timing determines ball speed. For example, lining up speed directly on the orange marker allows for the fastest available shot. After the shot specifics have been determined, the captain launches into the air, powers up further and then slams the ball towards the goalie. After that happens, the goalie must block the goals another way. (Mega Strike Block)

Players can shoot between three and six balls, which can either go at a slow, moderate, or very fast speed, depending on the color the meter stops on. Balanced captains have a balanced chance of getting the best choices for both sides; Playmaker and Defensive captains have a bigger orange zone of doing very fast Mega Strikes, while they have a smaller zone to fire six balls; Power and Offensive captains have a bigger zone of firing up to six balls, while they have a smaller zone to do very fast Mega Strikes.

Once a Mega Strike is performed, if the player scores any points, there will be a small cutscene celebration that lasts a few seconds.

When defending a Mega Strike the player must use the Wii Remote to control the Kritter's hand and block the incoming soccer balls.

Unlike Super Strikes, which had a specific name for each captain in Super Mario Strikers, Mega Strikes of each character are unnamed, except for the Japanese version of the game. The Japanese translations are listed next.

Captain's Mega Strikes[edit]

Mario
MSC Mario's Mega Strike in action.png Fiery Metal Mario: Mario turns into a fiery Metal Mario as he turns orange-black. He maneuvers his leg behind his head and he swings his leg to kick the ball with full force, smashing it towards the goal.
Luigi
MSC Luigi's Mega Strike in action.png Thunder Luigi: Luigi jumps high into the air. He waves his arms around as the ball floats around him, leaving an electric plasma trail. Now electrified, he focuses his hands in front of the ball, then he outstretches both his arms, and, in a thunder-like sound, launches it towards the goalie.
Peach
MSC Peach's Mega Strike in action.png Empress Peach: Peach jumps up as she sprouts wings and a giant crown that looks like a halo. Then she curls up in a protective position before releasing a flash from her wings launching the ball towards the goal.
Daisy
MSC Daisy's Mega Strike in action.png Crystallized Daisy: Daisy jumps up high into the air with the ball. She then raises her hand charging crystals into her clenched fist as her skin turns teal-black and punches the ball straight towards the goal emitting shining crystals throughout the mega strike.
Yoshi
MSC Yoshi's Mega Strike in action.png Winged Yoshi: Flutter jumping to reach the ball, Yoshi's head turns red and he sprouts wings, as if he had eaten a Blue Shell and transforms into Winged Yoshi, before breathing in air and shooting the air on the ball, shooting towards the goalie.
Wario
MSC Wario's Mega Strike in action.png Swelled-up Wario: Wario jumps into the air. Sucking in large amounts of air that almost seem to form a small tornado, he swells up to balloon size and gets a pink face. After rearing back slightly, he unleashes all the air full force into the ball, resulting in a fiery explosion and a gunshot-like sound.
Waluigi
MSC Waluigi's Mega Strike in action.png Thorny Waluigi: Waluigi leaps high into the air and forms a deep red vortex behind him before whipping the ball with what appears to be a whip made of a long thorn bush stem.
Donkey Kong
MSC Donkey Kong's Mega Strike in action.png Bongo Donkey Kong: DK jumps into the air. Once in the air, he gathers electricity in his arms and claps the ball, hurling it towards the goalie.
Bowser
MSC Bowser's Mega Strike in action.png Superclaw Bowser: Bowser jumps into the air, spins around once holding the ball as his claw extensions and spikes grow, his hair turns to fire, and his eyes glow yellow-white as his skin turns to red-black. He then throws the ball at the goalie with terrifying speed.
Bowser Jr.
MSC Bowser Jr.'s Mega Strike in action.png Sonar Wave Bowser Jr.: Bowser Jr. jumps high into the air. As the background turns green, his head swells up slightly, and he suddenly opens his mouth to release sonar waves (Similar to his Super Ability), which hits the ball and sends it flying towards the goal.
Diddy Kong

Petey Piranha

Trivia[edit]

  • All the Mega Strikes are seen in the opening cutscene except Petey Piranha's.
  • Mario's Mega Strike is the only one in which the ball is kicked.
  • Petey's Mega Strike is the only Mega Strike in which a character does not jump to initiate it (Petey is raised up by a flower).
  • Waluigi and Daisy are the only ones who uses an object/item which makes the ball go towards the goal throughout their Mega Strike .
