Power Flowers are power-ups that appear in Super Mario 64 DS. They replace the various caps from Super Mario 64. When Mario uses a Power Flower, he is able to float for a short time, like with the Power Balloon in Super Mario World. When Luigi uses a Power Flower, he becomes Vanish Luigi, becoming partially immaterial and being able to move through certain objects to get to new places, akin to the Vanish Cap. When Wario uses a Power Flower, he becomes Metal Wario, gaining the ability to walk underwater, as well as being able to withstand great winds, just like Mario with the Metal Cap. When Yoshi uses a Power Flower, he gains fire breath that can melt blocks of Ice and damage enemies, which is comparable to eating red watermelons or fire-based enemies in his eponymous franchise. The Power Flowers can be unlocked after the red switch in the ? Switch course has been pressed, after which they can be found in red blocks. They can also be found in the Mirror Room[1] on the second floor of the Mushroom Castle, but only while Luigi is the active character.
