Invincible Mario is a power-up in most Mario games. Mario turns into Invincible Mario after using a Super Star. Invincible Mario only lasts for a few seconds, however it make Mario resistant to any enemy and can defeat them if he touches them. The only way Mario can die in this form is if he falls into a pit or in lava, being crushed or if time runs out.


Super Mario Bros. series

Mario first turns into Invincible Mario in Super Mario Bros. In it's first appearance, Mario wouldn't flip when jumping. This was added in Super Mario Bros. 3.

Super Mario World

In Super Mario World and future Mario games, after defeating eight (five in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and Super Mario 3D Land) or more enemies whilst invincible the player will get extra lives.

Mario Kart series

In the Mario Kart series, every driver could turn into a form of Invincible Mario when using the Star. It gives the racer the same abilities as it does in the Super Bros Bros. series, giving the racer limited invincibility and running into any other racers would cause the other race to spin out. The racer would also get an increased speed.


Mario's body becomes rainbow-colored, he can run at high speeds, and is invulnerable to almost anything. Since Super Mario Bros. 3, Invincible Mario's jump looks similar to Samus Aran, in that they both curl into a ball and front-flip multiple times.



  • The Rainbow Mario from Super Mario Galaxy, is a reference to this form, having pretty much every ability that this form has.
  • This form might also be called Ultra Mario.
  • The only enemy Invincible Mario cannot defeat is the Boohemoth, a colossal sized Boo.
