Mini Mario (form)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Mini Mario is a form that Mario or Luigi takes upon eating a Mini Mushroom. Occasionally, this transformation may also be brought about by using a Poison Mushroom, or other various items. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, New Super Mario Bros. U, and New Super Luigi U, Blue Toad and Yellow Toad can use this form too. This transformation is similar to Wario's Tiny form and Tiny Kong's Mini-Monkey ability.
Mario has been shrunk in other media, namely in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episodes Princess, I Shrunk the Mario Brothers and All Steamed Up, though the Mini Mario form is considered a distinct entity from these occurrences.
Mario Party 4
Mario Party 4 introduces the Mini Mushroom, and is thus the debut of Mini Mario as a power-up form. While in his or her mini form, the player can only roll a 1-5. There is also another item that can transform the player into their mini form: the Super Mini Mushroom, which allows the player to roll two 1-5 dice blocks. Players who shrink themselves can also enter Gates and play Mini Mini-Games or land on certain spaces.

New Super Mario Bros.
In New Super Mario Bros., Mario once again becomes Mini Mario by eating a Mini Mushroom. While in this form, the player can jump higher, run on water, and fit through tiny Warp Pipes. Donut Blocks will also not fall under Mini Mario's weight. However, enemies that Mario can defeat with a stomp at regular size take a Ground Pound to defeat in this form, as Mini Mario merely bounces off of them if he just jumps on them. He also cannot grab and hold anything in this form. Finally, like Small Mario, he loses a life if hit in this form, and can only get Super Mushrooms from blocks.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
The mini form also appears in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, retaining the effects from the previous game, except for the inability to pick up objects, thus making it possible to stomp on enemies without ground pounding if the player is holding a heavy object above their head. In this game, Mario gets a higher-pitched voice in his Mini form. He also gains the ability to duck.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
The mini form also appears in New Super Mario Bros. 2, along with the Mini Mushroom, having the same effects from the previous games. They only appear in World 3-B, World 4-A, and certain Toad Houses.

Mario Sports Mix
In Mario Sports Mix, Mini Mushrooms reappear as items. While mini, the player is not able to carry a basketball, hockey puck, or dodgeball. They also have the inability to spike in volleyball, or perform a defensive maneuver in dodgeball.
