  • When starting a new game or when restarting a saved one, the player begins with small Mario.
  • If cape Mario, fire Mario or super Mario get hit they turn into small mario.
  • If Mario dies, he restarts as small mario.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Small mario is the weakest Mario.

  • A single hit kills small Mario.
  • Small mario cannot break yellow bricks using spin jump.
  • However, his small size allows him to access areas that are otherwise more difficult to access.
