Wing Mario is the form Mario takes on whenever he grabs a Wing Cap in Super Mario 64. which 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 or be shot from a Cannon. Once in the air, the player must constantly raise and lower himself to maintain flight. The player can also use the wings to fall slower and prevent fall damage; this ability, however, is removed in Super Mario 64 DS. Mario is also transformed into Wing Mario by grabbing the Giant Star that appears after defeating Bowser in the final battle.

Wing Mario returns in the remake, Super Mario 64 DS. It serves the same purpose as in the original but instead of the Wing Cap, this form is obtained by grabbing a feather (referred to as Wings in-game), and can only be obtained by Mario in the single-player game. However, the game's multiplayer versus mode includes yellow ! Blocks containing feathers that allow Luigi, Wario and Yoshi to use a wing form similar to Mario's, though in Yoshi's case it is more likely a reference to his other winged transformation. Wing Mario is also depicted on the Japanese and Korean Box art of Super Mario 64 DS.

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.
