First Appearance Super Mario Odyssey (2017)

Uproots are enemies from Super Mario Odyssey that can be controlled with Cappy. In their natural state, Uproots have flower pots on their heads, and have red eyes. They can stretch their legs to reach high places.

Uproots can be found in the Wooded Kingdom, a secret, lava-filled area in the Seaside Kingdom, and the Darker Side. In order to break the flower pots on their heads, Mario needs to throw Cappy at them, allowing him to take control of the Uproot. They can be used to reach places Mario normally couldn't reach.
