The Super Acorn is a power-up item that debuted in New Super Mario Bros. U. The item is an acorn highly stylized to resemble mushroom items from the franchise, with red and yellow stripes on top and a red face with eyes on the bottom. It transforms playable characters into their Flying Squirrel forms. There exists a stronger variant called the P-Acorn.
Super Mario series
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
In New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Acorns appear as common items and are introduced in the first level: Acorn Plains Way in New Super Mario Bros. U and Waddlewing Warning! in New Super Luigi U. They originate from a large Acorn Tree in Acorn Plains, as seen in the games' introduction; during gameplay, they are usually found within ? Blocks, but they can also be carried by Waddlewings, which the player has to defeat in order to release the Super Acorn. Upon release, Super Acorns start rolling on the ground and change direction when they touch a wall, similarly to how a Super Mushroom acts. When collected, they confer Flying Squirrel abilities, such as gliding and sticking to walls for a short time.
There are some Super Acorns rolling around in some parts of the world map, where they can be collected instantly and stored into the inventory.
Super Mario Maker 2
Super Acorns were added to Super Mario Maker 2 in the version 3.0.0 update released on April 22, 2020, appearing in the New Super Mario Bros. U style. In the nighttime ground theme, Super Acorns bounce at varying heights as they travel across the ground.
