|First Appearance||Super Mario World|
|Grants 3 Lives to the player, gives 300 Coins to the player|
3-Up Moons (also called Rare Coin Moons) are very rare items that appear in the Super Mario series. They are crescent shaped moons and have eyes and a smile. They have a similar effect as a 1-Up Mushroom, except they grant Mario with three Extra Lives insead of one. Because of this, they are very rare.
In their debut, Super Mario World, these items could only be used once, meaning they never appear again in the level where they were picked up. This means that the player must use it wisely.
After long absence, the special item returns in this game. Unlike Super Mario World, they appear again everytime the player picked it up and replays the level.
Return to Dinosaur Land
Super Mario Finale
3-Up Moons reappear in Super Mario Finale. Because the game does not have a Lives system, collecting a 3-Up Moon simply awards 300 Coins. On the official website, the 3-Up Moon is referred to as the Rare Coin Moon in reference to the large amount of Coins it gives.
- Studio Lillie (t∣b∣c) was in the talks with Nintendo about producing a 3-Up Moon amiibo for Super Mario Finale, but decided not to as their appearance in the game is quite similar to that of a Power Moon.
