|Throwing superballs that ricochet off surfaces|
Superball Mario is a transformation Mario can enter by collecting a Superball Flower. In this form, Mario can throw Superballs, which will travel diagonally downwards. They will ricochet off of surfaces they hit, bouncing in 90-degree angles. The Superballs will defeat enemies they hit on contact. The form debuted in Super Mario Land as a replacement for Fire Mario, even though the latter appeared in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. After three decades of absence, Superball Mario reappears in Super Mario Maker 2, and can be used in levels with the Super Mario Bros. style.
In Super Mario Land, Mario's appearance isn't changed whatsoever. Though in Super Mario Maker 2, Mario's colors are changed into dark shades of green, matching the color of the Game Boy. The ground theme from Super Mario Land also plays in the background while in this form.
Superball Mario reappears in Super Mario Land 3D
Superball Mario returns in Super Mario 2D Land, but is now referred to as "Black and White Mario". Despite this name change, he has the same abilities.
