Mr. Eraser is an ally in Super Mario Maker, its Nintendo 3DS port, and its sequel, Super Mario Maker 2, who takes the shape of an eraser with legs and eyes. His icon is placed on the right hand side of the level creation screen, under Coursebot. Upon his icon being tapped, the player is able to erase course parts and sound effects. He has three official courses made by him in Super Mario Maker. Super Mario Maker 2 features Mr. Eraser in the game's story mode, appearing for the first time as a 3D model.

As seen in the game's E3 2014 trailer, there was originally an eraser that had a letter "E" on it, similar to the one in Mario Paint, which had the exact same effect. This old icon was later replaced with Mr. Eraser.

In Super Mario Maker 2, he has a more important role in Story Mode. In this game, he has courses, which are needed to help him to erase blocks that block a pipe's path. His catchphase is "Adios, amigo!", which means "Bye, friend!" in Spanish. He has a shady, criminal-like demeanor in many of his quotes, saying things such as "We never met" after finishing a job.

If the player tries to erase the player character in the editor using Mr. Eraser, the character crouches and quivers in fear while sweating and yelling. Despite this, Mr. Eraser has no effect on the character.
