Wing Mario is the form Mario takes on whenever he grabs a Wing Cap in Super Mario 64. It grants him the ability to fly with the small wings on his cap until the time limit expires. In order for Mario to attain flight, he must first perform a Triple Jump (which can be done in place in this form) or be shot from a cannon. Once in the air, the player must constantly raise and lower themself to maintain flight (similar to Cape Mario in Super Mario World). The player can also use the wings to fall slower and prevent falling damage. Mario also transforms into Wing Mario by grabbing the Jumbo Star that appears after defeating Bowser in the final battle.

Wing Mario returns in the remake, Super Mario 64 DS, but the Wing Cap is replaced by a white feather (with both the item and the Wing Mario form itself translated to Wings[1] in the English manual), and it can only be obtained by Mario in the single-player game. Players can still slow their fall, but it no longer prevents damage, unlike in the original version. Also, the game's multiplayer versus mode includes yellow ! Blocks containing feathers that allow Luigi, Wario, and Yoshi to use this form, though in Yoshi's case, the wings grow on his back instead. Wing Mario is also depicted on the game's Japanese and Korean box art.

Wing Mario makes a cameo appearance in one of Mario Party's title screens, where he is shown flying through the air, holding Luigi and Yoshi by their hands.

It made another cameo on the side of the box of Nintendo Monopoly.
