|Original Character(s)||Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, Rosalina, Toadette|
|Achieved By||Collecting a Fire Flower|
|First Appearance||Super Mario Bros. (1985)|
Fire Mario (originally known as Fiery Mario) is a transformation Mario can enter after collecting a Fire Flower. Usually, this transformation will simply change the color pallet of Mario (or any other character who collects it), turning shirt and hat white and his overalls red. However, Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins places a feather on Mario's head rather than changing his color scheme, likely due to the game's monochrome sprites.
Introduced in Super Mario Bros. and being one of Mario's first power-ups, it gives him the ability to throw fireballs that bounce across the ground to damage enemies. Only two fireballs can be on screen at once usually. Sometimes, other characters who use a Fire Flower can shoot their fireballs in different ways; for example, when Luigi becomes Fire Luigi, his fireballs can sometimes defy gravity and fly forward in a straight line, a trait seen most prominently in the Super Smash Bros. series. Wario has a similar form in the Wario Land series called Dragon Wario, though he has been shown to be able to enter this transformation in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.
Fire Mario makes several minor appearances within Jake's Super Smash Bros.. In addition to having his own trophy, Mario and Luigi have their respective Fire Mario/Luigi colour schemes as alternate costumes within the game. Mario's neutral special move also sees him throw a small Fireball, akin to how he does as Fire Mario.
| ||Fire Mario|
|The Super Mario series is well known for its large variety of different, and very interesting, power-ups. Super Mario Bros. was the first to feature one of the power-ups from Mario's ever-growing collection, and it was the Fire Flower. Touching the Fire Flower would turn Mario into Fire Mario, granting him the ability to throw small fireballs to defeat most foes. Though he doesn't need to touch a Fire Flower to gain the ability to throw fire in Super Smash Bros., Fire Mario is immortalized as one of Mario's alternate costumes and as one of his special moves.|
