RPG Mario is one of Mario's Forms obtainable from a Super Nintendo Controller or a Hammer Orb in Mario Party 12. This gives him the power to hit an enemy with a hammer,instakilling him. This doesn't work with bosses,but works with enemies that can split in two or more. Mario can also jump higher with every next jump in a row. He may appear in several upcoming games where he can unite with a platformer version of Mario.

Every character can transform into his RPG version from gaining a Hammer Orb. This gives the ability to whack an opponent he meets with a hammer and steal 10 coins from him. If the player doesn't have that amount of coins,he steals a random item like a Dice Block. If he doesn't have an item,he is left by the player with the hammer.
RPG Mario may appear in other 2D or 3D games as a transformation. It can make a cameo as an advertisement to play the RPG Mario games or just as a reference.
RPG Mario looks just like the normal Mario,but wears a hammer. In some games he may look like Mario in Super Mario RPG:Legend Of The Seven Stars.
