Penguin Mario is a transformation Mario can enter by collecting a Penguin Suit. In this form, Mario wears a penguin costume, with a blue body, white stomach, and a yellow "beak" where the rim of his hat usually is. Mario also wears red overalls over the suit.
Introduced in New Super Mario Bros. Wii alongside Propeller Mario, Penguin Mario has similar abilities to Ice Mario; he can throw Iceballs, which bounce slowly along the ground twice before disappearing. The iceballs can freeze enemies, and Mario can then use a Ground Pound to defeat them or pick them up and throw them, causing them to slide across the ground, defeating any enemies they hit and destroying on contact with a wall. With the Penguin Suit, Mario can also slide down icy slopes, much longer than he could do normally, which defeats enemies and breaks blocks to open new pathways. Penguin Mario can also slide across water, and he has much better traction on icy surfaces.

|You may ask yourself the question "why is Mario dressed up like a penguin?" Well, there's an easy answer to this: this is Penguin Mario (and the Penguin Suit isn't just a fashion statement)! While he dons the Penguin Suit, Mario is capable of throwing small balls of ice to freeze the foes that he comes across, and he can even pick them up or use them as platforms to reach new areas. While that's fairly useful on its own, Penguin Mario can also slide around on his stomach to traverse icy platforms at an incredible speed.|
Penguin Luigi appears in Mario Kart: Infinity Remix as a starter character. He is a middleweight, meaning that for the most part, his stats are balanced. However, he has among the best Mini-Turbo stats in the game in exchange for his Traction being one of the lowest.
