Transparent Platforms are invisible solid objects that appear in the Sand Kingdom and in the Moon Kingdom. Despite the platforms being invisible, Mario and other creatures can stand on them. Birds can be seen on Transparent Platforms in the Sand Kingdom. When Mario captures a Moe-Eye and uses its shades, these platforms become visible. They have the same appearance as other ruins in the Sand Kingdom, where they appear in the Moe-Eye Habitat and in a sub-area with Power Moons for the missions Where the Transparent Platforms End and Jump Onto the Transparent Lift.
A Transparent Platform reappears in the Underground Moon Caverns, where Mario needs to use a Moe-Eye to cross the invisible bridge after pressing a switch.
