Super Strike

This article is about the power-based shot in Super Mario Strikers. For the volatile status effect in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story also known as "Super Strike", see KO.
A perfect Super Strike allows to the player to watch a momentary 360 degrees view of the character's Strike.

A Super Strike is a powerful soccer shot that only captains can perform in Super Mario Strikers and is worth two points, instead of one. By pressing B Button, players can attempt to land two white needles on a thin dark green area, which is surrounded by thicker, lighter green bands. Once the first needle lands on the dark green area If pulled off perfectly, the strike becomes unstoppable, powerful enough to knock the goalie into the goal and instantly score. The Super Strike can still be successful if the timing is flawed; if the second white needle lands adjacent to the second dark green zone, the Kritter will miss blocking the Super Strike, and the captain scores. If the Super Strike's timing is not perfect, Kritters can deflect Super Strikes back at the shooter, which can harm the shooter and possibly push the shooter into an electric rail, or be momentarily stunned. Super Strikes do not appear in in Mario Strikers Charged. Instead, Mario Strikers Charged introduces a new kind of Super Strike called Mega Strike. Mega Strikes are more powerful Super Strikes in the game that can be worth up to six goals.


Mario - Fire Strike[edit]

Mario does his Super Strike

Fire Strike is a Super Strike that Mario has the ability to perform. Mario kicks the soccer ball to the air and jumps. Then he makes a pose and a fire halo appears around him. Mario then kicks the ball with force, turning it into a fireball that goes straight to the target, the goal.

Super Team - Robo-Strike[edit]

A Robotic Nightmare, performing the Robo-Strike

The Robo-Strike is a conjectural term used to describe the unnamed Super Strike of all of the members of the Super Team. The strike looks similar to Waluigi's, and can be executed by any member of the Super Team, since the team has no captain. To pull off the strike, the Robotic Nightmare kicks the ball into the air and then surrounds itself with a yellow ring. Once the ring transforms into a circle, the robot kicks the ball into the goal.


  • In early versions of Super Mario Strikers game, sidekicks could perform Super Strikes as well.
