A Frying Pan (also lowercase) is a recurring item. They are typically associated with Princess Peach, and have been used as a weapon by her and others, first appearing in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.


Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars[edit]

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the Frying Pan, initially identified as a Metal Plate, can be bought from the Miner's Store, located in the Moleville item shop. It is first available after defeating the Axem Rangers and is the most powerful weapon available to Peach, increasing her Attack by 90.

Game & Watch Gallery 2[edit]

In Game & Watch Gallery 2, the pan is used in Chef, with Peach specifically using it in the Modern version to make food for Yoshi. The game reappears in Game & Watch Gallery 4.

Paper Mario[edit]

The Frying Pan is a special item found in Paper Mario. After Mario and his partners free the third Star Spirit, Skolar, and go back to Toad Town as usual, they see the Shy Guys from Shy Guy's Toy Box stealing items from Toads and doing pranks all over the town. When Mario goes near Tayce T.'s house, one of the Shy Guys steals her Frying Pan and hides it in Shy Guy's Toy Box. Since the Frying Pan is stolen, Tayce T. cannot cook recipes for Mario for the time being.

The item is located in the Pink Station area of Shy Guy's Toy Box. To access the station, Mario has to first get the Storeroom Key in the Blue Station area that is guarded by an enemy or an item cast by Kammy Koopa. After collecting the key from the treasure chest, Mario must return it to Harry, who then lets Mario access his storeroom. The storeroom contains an important item, the Toy Train. Just outside the Toy Box, Mario throws the Toy Train into the box, gaining access to the Pink Station. After Mario arrives at the Pink Station, he eventually notices an enemy or an item "guarding" the treasure chest containing the Frying Pan.

When Mario returns the Frying Pan to Tayce T., she rewards Mario by baking a Cake. The Cake is needed to pass Gourmet Guy.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Throughout the Super Smash Bros. series starting with her playable debut in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Peach uses the frying pan as her forward smash attack, along with a tennis racket and a golf club. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Daisy, who is an Echo Fighter of Peach, uses a frying pan identical to Peach's in the exact same manner.

Mario Kart series[edit]

The Frying Pan appears in Mario Kart Arcade GP, Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, and Mario Kart Arcade GP DX as one of Peach's character items. The item is used to attack Peach's opponents with a powerful blow.

Super Mario Odyssey[edit]

In Super Mario Odyssey, frying pans replace hammers as the weapon of choice of the Hammer Bros. in the Luncheon Kingdom. If Mario captures one of these Hammer Bros., he can throw frying pans as an attack as well, and use them to destroy mounds of cheese rocks to uncover hidden objects.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie[edit]

In The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Toad is shown carrying a frying pan in his backpack. In the film, he uses it to distract the guards in front of Peach's Castle with makeshift cooking so that Mario can sneak in to meet Peach. Toad later takes it out of his backpack when he and Peach go to confront Bowser. He most likely intended to use it as a weapon, similarly to how Peach uses her frying pan in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and the Super Smash Bros. series.

In an International variation of the film's Illumination logo, Toad, after trying to fend a Goomba off with various knick-knacks, bashes it upside the head with his frying pan only to be chased by a Goomba Tower.
