Mysterious Clouds, also referred to as cap clouds, are objects that appear in Super Mario Odyssey. They are floating white top hats with question marks on them resembling the ones found on ? Blocks, and they usually float above gaps. They are found in the Cascade Kingdom, the Cloud Kingdom, and the Luncheon Kingdom. When Cappy is thrown at one, a cloud platform that will disappear after a few seconds appears for the player, similar to the ones Cloud Mario produces in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Performing a Ground Pound on a Mysterious Cloud after activating it makes it last slightly longer. The travel brochure of the Cloud Kingdom discusses Mysterious Clouds, referring to them as "super-light stuff" and "strangely floaty material" and stating they were first discovered recently by researchers at Fossil Falls; it also states that the discovery of Mysterious Clouds led to the discovery of the Cloud Kingdom by promoting certain researchers to begin investigations regarding its existence.
