Super Mario series
Super Mario World
Pipe Cannons first appear in Super Mario World, where they are always on a slant and fire the player to far places (about two or three screens away). These pipes cannot be entered and are always exited via a different pipe, usually from an underground area.
New Super Mario Bros.
Pipe Cannons reappear in New Super Mario Bros., where they are similar to the Warp Cannons that are used to travel to a different world, except they fire the player within a much smaller range. To use these pipes, unlike in Super Mario World, players enter one and then are automatically fired off, often to an unreachable ledge, platform, or even a different area.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Pipe Cannons reappear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, retaining the same functionality from New Super Mario Bros. Another type of Pipe Cannon makes an appearance in the 1-up Blast mini-games, where the player(s) can enter these cannons and aim before they blast themselves and attempt to pop balloons to earn 1-Ups.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U
Pipe Cannons reappear in New Super Mario Bros. U, where there are Pipe Cannons on the world map in each world, which are used as shortcuts to completed worlds, or to get to the Secret Island and Superstar Road. After the level Stone-Eye Zone is beaten and Nabbit is seen stealing Toad's power-ups. Toad uses a Pipe Cannon in order to quickly travel to Acorn Plains, unlocking Pipe Cannons for regular use in the world map.
In the levels themselves, Pipe Cannons function the same as in previous installments.
Pipe Cannons reappear in New Super Luigi U, where they function the same as they did in New Super Mario Bros. U.
Super Mario 3D World
Cannons similar to Pipe Cannons appear in Super Mario 3D World, being Clear Pipe Cannons, having the ability to launch the player in a very similar manner to Pipe Cannons. Additionally, another similar cannon appears, called the Cloud Cannon, which, when jumped into, produces a white Pipe Cannon that launches the player into a Coin Heaven.
Super Mario Run
In the Remix 10 mode of Super Mario Run, on random occasions, when entering a pipe to go to the next area on the map screen, it may turn out to be a Pipe Cannon, launching the player into the sky.
Mario Kart series
Mario Kart DS
Mario Kart 7
A black Pipe Cannon reappears in Mario Kart 7 through the returning course DS Airship Fortress, having the same function as it did in Mario Kart DS.
Mario Kart Tour
Pipe Cannons reappear in Mario Kart Tour, where they are simply called "pipes" and serve as a main method of obtaining drivers, karts, and gliders. The player can spend 5 rubies to fire it once, or 45 to fire it ten times. The player fires a pipe by dragging it down and releasing it, causing it to shoot out a driver, kart, or glider. A green pipe can fire any item available in the pipe, including High-End items, but if the pipe appears as a golden one, the player is guaranteed to receive a High-End. Each pipe holds 100 drivers, karts, or gliders, with some pipes occasionally only holding 50 items instead of 100. A new pipe with different content is available each week.
Since the Baby Rosalina Tour, players could fire at least two free pipe pulls during the tour, and went up to four pipe pulls since the Flower Tour. Additionally, starting with the Wild West Tour, players can use an All-Clear Pipe that consists of a random High-End driver, kart, or glider after completing each cup within a tour, as well as the last two free pipe pulls being reserved for the second week's spotlight pipe.
Additionally, the black Pipe Cannon featured in DS Airship Fortress reappears in the game through the aforementioned returning course, having the same function as it did in Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart 7.
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story / Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, Pipe Cannons appear throughout a handful of areas inside Bowser's body, functioning the same as in the 2D platformer games.
