Spark pylons are objects that appear in Super Mario Odyssey. The base of a spark pylon has a small sphere on the top with a lightning bolt symbol on the sides. When Mario captures a spark pylon, he will turn into a ball of electricity and gain the ability to move across a power line, although variants without power lines appear in the Moon Kingdom, Ruined Kingdom and Bowser's Kingdom. This can help Mario quickly travel to different areas of some kingdoms. The player can also shake their Joy-Con controller when coins are surrounding a spark pylon, which will cause Mario to follow the trail of coins. Mario can de-capture the spark pylons at any time to collect items below him.
Mario first encounters a spark pylon when traveling from the Cap Kingdom to the Cascade Kingdom for the first time. It is the only spark pylon that transports Mario to a different kingdom entirely, due to Mario not yet discovering the Odyssey; after that, the Odyssey becomes his main mode of transportation between kingdoms.
