While fighting a Jumping Pumpkin Plant, Mario falls on Yoshi, who pops out an egg with a Yoshi Cloud inside. Mario jumps on the cloud and eats the Bonus Coins produced, becoming the big-headed Nikoniko Mario. Scared, the Jumping Pumpkin Plant runs away, hiding behind the panels. Mario's transformation lasts long enough for Luigi and Yoshi to take advantage of the shadow Mario's head casts and repair themselves from the hot sun.
