Patches of mud

Mud is a mixture of strata and water. Mud is used multiple times in the Mario franchise as an obstacle, usually slowing the player down.


Mario Kart series[edit]

Super Mario Kart[edit]

Mud appears in Super Mario Kart, in both Choco Island 1 and Choco Island 2. In both courses, they appear as puddles throughout the track; driving through them will result in the player slowing down and mud being thrown behind the kart. In Choco Island 2 specifically, a large portion of the track is taken up by a mud puddle.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit[edit]

Mud reappear in Mario Kart: Super Circuit, reappearing in the same tracks with the same mechanics as before, though mud no longer is shown being thrown behind the kart and the mud has a lighter texture.

Mario Kart: Double Dash![edit]

In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, mud appears throughout GCN Waluigi Stadium, composing most of the track's off-road areas.

Mario Kart DS[edit]

In Mario Kart DS, mud appears throughout DS Wario Stadium.

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

In Mario Kart Wii, mud reappears alongside Waluigi Stadium. The final area behind the Finish Line at Toad's Factory, the cave section of N64 DK's Jungle Parkway, and the shortcut in DS Delfino Square also feature mud.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[edit]

In Mario Kart 8 and its Nintendo Switch port, mud appears on DS Wario Stadium.

Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario Galaxy[edit]

In Super Mario Galaxy, mud is found on the Boulder Planet in Good Egg Galaxy. Various sections of mud are on this planet, and standing in it will result in Mario's movement speed and jump height being reduced.

Super Mario Galaxy 2[edit]

Mud in Boulder Bowl Galaxy

In Super Mario Galaxy 2, mud functions the same way as its predecessor. If Rock Mario rolls over mud, he does not slow down. It is found on the Cylindrical Planet in Sky Station Galaxy and the Boulder Planet in Boulder Bowl Galaxy.
