Poles are objects appearing in several Mario platforming games. In nearly all games they appear in, the player can grab onto them and move up and down on them before jumping off, though some poles leave the player incapable of performing a handstand on them.
Super Mario series
Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS
Poles first appear in Super Mario 64 and its remake, where they appear in Dire, Dire Docks, specifically during the mission Pole-Jumping for Red Coins. They are yellow-and-black objects attached to ceilings.
Super Mario Sunshine
New Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Galaxy
Poles also appear in Super Mario Galaxy as uncommon objects, most commonly appearing in Deep Dark Galaxy. They are more rectangular than in past games and thus only allow the player to grab it at four cardinal angles, but otherwise behave in the same way. There also exists another rare variety of pole that features a knob on its end, allowing the player to handstand on it.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Poles return in Super Mario Galaxy 2, behaving exactly the same as in Super Mario Galaxy, though only the plastic-textured aesthetic variety and the variety with the knob at the end appear. They mainly appear in Honeybloom Galaxy and Melty Monster Galaxy.
Super Mario 3D Land
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Poles return in New Super Mario Bros. 2, having the same color scheme as in New Super Mario Bros., and otherwise behaving the same as in past installments. Only five appear in the second room of World 5-.
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
Poles return in New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, having the same color scheme as in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and otherwise behaving the same as in past installments. They are much more common, appearing in the levels Haunted Shipwreck, Which-Way Labyrinth, Spinning Spirit House, and World Coin-6 in the former, and in the levels Haunted Cargo Hold and Porcupuffer Cavern in the latter.
Super Mario Odyssey
Poles return in Super Mario Odyssey, featuring the same behavior as in Super Mario Galaxy, though they now feature yellow-and-black stripes. They appear in New Donk City Hall Interior, Shiveria Town, and the Bullet Bill secret area in the Metro Kingdom, and in the first section of the Darker Side.
