First Appearance

Super Mario Odyssey (2017)

Effect on Player

Launches Mario in the direction he is facing.

Poles (originally called Safety Bars[1]) are flexible bollard objects found in Super Mario Odyssey in the Metro Kingdom. Mario can capture Poles, which, after pulling back, give him extra jump momentum in the direction he slung back. In addition to being on the horizontal plane, Poles can be found on the vertical plane as well, and some Volbonans lodged into the walls act as Poles in their own regard.
