Tanooki Mario
TanookiMario
Tanooki Mario from Super Mario 3D Land.
Used by Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Rosalina, Toads
Bowser, Boo, Bullet Bill, Thwomp, Goomba*
Achieved by Collect the Tanooki Suit, Super Leaf, or Statue Leaf.

Tanooki Mario (Japanese: タヌキマリオ Tanuki Mario) is a power-up from the Super Mario, that first debuted in Super Mario Bros. 3. The form was initially granted to Mario or Luigi once they collected the Tanooki Suit, but in Super Mario 3D Land and several later titles, the Mario Bros. would instead need to collect the Super Leaf item.

Throughout the series, Tanooki Mario has displayed all the same abilities as Raccoon Mario (the ability to fly after getting a running start, fall at a slower speed, and attack with a tail), and was initially declared a stronger, rarer version of the form. In Super Mario Bros. 3, it also granted them the ability to transform into a statue; an ability later given to the Statue Leaf item.

Starting in Super Mario 3D Land, Luigi no longer becomes Tanooki Luigi, instead becoming Kitsune Luigi (Japanese: キツネルイージ Kitsune Ruīji), with his appearance being based on the kitsune instead of the tanuki that other characters' forms are based on.

In Super Mario 3D Land, a number of enemies have been powered up by Super Leaves. Though they have the same tail as Tanooki Mario, they are instead referred to as "Tail" enemies: Tail Boos, Tail Bullet Bills, Tail Thwomps, and Tail Goombas. Fake Bowsers in Super Mario 3D Land are also shown to be a Goomba (World 1) or a Magikoopa (World 5) that is using a (presumably-charmed) Super Leaf to conceal their true identity.

Appearances Edit

Mario Kart NX Edit

Tanooki Mario returns as a playable character in Mario Kart NX, once again as a standalone character on the character select screen. Joining him as a newcomer to the series is Kitsune Luigi. Both Tanooki Mario and Kitsune Luigi are classified as "Intermediate" racers, being lighter than their original counterparts but having more acceleration.

Like in Mario Kart 8, Tanooki Mario's horn sound is the sound effect that plays when Mario spins as Cape Mario from Super Mario World. Kitsune Luigi does not share the same sound, with his horn instead being the sound effect that plays when either of the Mario Bros. collects a Super Leaf in Super Mario Bros. 3.

Super Smash Bros. Strife Edit

Tanooki Mario appears as a downloadable alternate costume for Mario in Super Smash Bros. Strife in the Super Leaf Costume Pack. There are eight different recolours of the Tanooki Mario costume, alongside its normal brown colour scheme.
