Wings

From the Super Mario Wiki
This article is about the wings given to course elements in Super Mario Maker. For other uses of the word "Wing", see Wing.
A Coin, Super Mushroom, Super Star, and Fire Flower with Wings

Wings are power-ups that can be given to other course elements in Super Mario Maker and its sequel to modify their behavior(s). In the former, they are a separate object that can be attached to most objects by dragging them to the object in the same way Super Mushrooms can be given to enemies to enlarge them. In the latter, they are accessed through a mini-menu that appears above course elements when placed, alongside the other modifiers.

If the object is also attached to a set of tracks, it will move much faster along them. If the object is inside a Koopa Clown Car or its relatives, it will move faster than usual. In the case of enemies, it can be combined with the Super Mushroom and/or parachute, though if the enemy carries a parachute, the wings will not take effect until the enemy lands and its parachute is deactivated. It also gives the enemy an extra 'hit point', allowing them to jumped on one extra time without defeating the enemy.

Effects on course elements[edit]

Super Mario Maker[edit]

  • ? Block - The block floats in a gentle sine wave pattern leftwards, passing through solid structures. Can crush Mario and some enemies if it pushes them against a solid surface. When struck, they empty their contents and lose their wings, becoming motionless.
  • 1-Up Mushroom, Big Mushroom, Cape Feather, Fire Flower, Mystery Mushroom, Super Leaf, Super Mushroom, Super Star, Weird Mushroom - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen.
  • Blooper, Blooper Nanny, Blooper Baby - Will move in two consecutive jumps instead of one. Overall speed is slightly greater.
  • Bob-omb - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. Being hit lights the fuse and drops its wings. Bob-ombs that are already lit will fly as normal until they explode.
  • Boo - Delays its chase of Mario, but increases its speed. Behaves like it did in Super Mario Bros. 3.
  • Boo Buddies - The Boos of the ring spread outwards then recede inwards in a pulsing manner.
  • Bowser - Jumps have a Flutter Jump motion.
  • Bowser Jr. - Jumps are slightly larger, gains access to the Ground Pound without being supersized, and throws hammers instead of spitting fireballs. While in his shell, he can clear much larger gaps, and if he falls into a bottomless pit, he will reappear above Mario in attempt to drop a Ground Pound on him.
  • Brick Block, Rotating Block - Identical to ? Blocks, but if they contain nothing, they do not lose their wings. They are not affected by P Switches.
  • Buzzy Beetle - Becomes a Para-Beetle; flies slowly leftward. Can be used as a platform, briefly sinking when jumped on, then rising upwards until Mario jumps off.
  • Chain Chomp - While idling, its head floats around its post, increasing the range in which Mario can be bitten.
  • Unchained Chomp - Jumps much higher than usual.
  • Cloud Block - Flies back and forth in a sine wave pattern, passing through solid structures.
  • Coin - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. Is not affected by P Switches.
  • Donut Block - Flies back and forth in a sine wave pattern, passing through solid structures. After disappearing, it respawns where it was placed in the editor, wings intact.
  • Dry Bones - Becomes a Parabones; it floats up and down in a vertical range.
  • Fish Bone - It swims faster than usual - both idle and attacking - and has a greater field of vision.
  • Flimsy Lift - Falls much more slowly than usual, but still moves quickly on tracks.
  • Goomba, Galoomba - Becomes a Paragoomba or Paragaloomba; it jumps around in groups of two short jumps followed by a large jump. Unlike regular Goombas, it slowly chases Mario. Underwater, they turn and swim at greater speeds and distances.
  • Green Cheep Cheep, Blurp, Deep Cheep - In non-underwater levels, their third jumps move like Flutter Jumps. In underwater levels, they swim to the left in a tall and wide sine wave motion.
  • Green Koopa Troopa - Becomes a Koopa Paratroopa; it moves with a constant bouncing.
  • Hammer Bro, Sledge Bro - Jumps much higher than usual.
  • Hard Block, Ice Block - Flies back and forth in a sine wave pattern, passing through solid structures. Can crush Mario and some enemies if it pushes them against a solid surface.
  • Hidden Block - Acts like other Blocks, but does not crush Mario. It can be only be seen by the wings it carries.
  • Lakitu, Lakitu's Cloud - An empty cloud cannot be given wings, but when the object riding it (including Lakitu) is given wings, it follows Mario with a constant up-and-down motion alongside its usual horizontal movement.
  • Lava Bubble - The fly in a diagonal line, ricocheting off solid surfaces and lava. They act identically to the Zigzag Lava Bubble of Super Mario World.
  • Lift - Moves in a sine-like pattern perpendicular to its set direction; horizontally when set up or down, and vertically when set left or right.
  • Magikoopa - No change in behavior, but requires an extra hit to be defeated. It's magic attacks also possess wings, to no extra affect.
  • Monty Mole - Chases Mario with fast jumps.
  • Muncher - Occasionally Flutter Jumps. If placed inside a pipe, it will launch from it and hover in the air before returning to it.
  • Note Block, Music Block - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. Will not lose its wings when struck or jumped upon.
  • P Switch - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. Can crush Mario and some enemies if it pushes them against a solid surface from above or to the side; from below, Mario can activate it as normal.
  • Piranha Plant, Fire Piranha Plant, Jumping Piranha Plant - Occasionally Flutter Jumps. If placed inside a pipe, it will launch from it and hover in the air before returning to it. The Jumping Piranha Plant still falls slower than the other kinds.
  • POW Block - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. Can crush Mario and some enemies if it pushes them against a solid surface.
  • Red Cheep Cheep - In non-underwater levels, their third jumps move like Flutter Jumps. In underwater levels, they swim back and forth in a tall and wide sine wave motion.
  • Red Koopa Troopa - Another type of Koopa Paratroopa, it floats up and down in a vertical range.
  • Rocky Wrench - Launches out of its burrow and floats in mid-air while throwing its wrench.
  • Shoe Goomba, Stiletto Goomba - Jumps have a Flutter Jump motion. Once the Goomba inside is defeated, the winged shoe allows the riding player to perform a Flutter Jump, similar to while riding a Yoshi.
  • Spike Top - Identical to the Buzzy Beetle, but standing on it damages Mario. The blue Spike Tops move faster than the red. Also resembles the Spiky Parabuzzy.
  • Spiny - Flies like the Buzzy Beetle, but does not work as a platform. It occasionally curls up to fire spines in either a '+' or 'x' pattern.
  • Stretch - When it reaches a wall or ledge, it disappears, reappearing on top of the wall or at the bottom of the pit, and continues further. Also moves slightly faster.
  • Thwomp - While dormant, it slowly glides horizontally, ricocheting off solid structures and other Thwomps.
  • Trampoline - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. Loses its wings when grabbed, but not when used.
  • Wiggler, Angry Wiggler - Jumps in thin, high, arcs. Angry Wigglers follow Mario with much greater jumps and a slight speed increase. Does not lose its wings when jumped on.
  • Yoshi's Egg - Flies in gentle sine wave motion through solid structures to the left of the screen. When touched by the player, it falls to the ground, where it hatches into a wingless Yoshi.

  • Ant Trooper, Horned Ant Trooper - Flies slowly leftward. When it reaches a solid surface, it turns around. Does not lose its wings when jumped on.
  • Boom Boom - Behaves like his Super Mario Bros. 3 and New Super Mario Bros. U appearances; he waits in the air above Mario, then swoops down to tackle him. Does not lose his wings when jumped on.
  • Bully - Behaves as normal until pushed off of its platform, to which it slowly flies back. Requires another hit to drop it into the pit.
  • Fire Bro, Heavy Fire Bro - Jumps much higher than usual.
  • Goombrat, Goombud - Moves like a Paragoomba, but walks back-and-forth between a specific horizontal range.

  • Porcupuffer - Jumps have a Flutter Jump motion.
  • Skipsqueak, Spiny Skipsqueak - They jump much more slowly, taking longer to reach their max height. They may also jump on their own; in which case they will float in place just above their resting position.
