A Technocolor Mushroom is a item that when touched turns Mario in Technocolor Mario. In this form, Mario can go at very fast speeds and makes him become basically a black hole. Any enemies he kills charges up a meter that allows him to escape the game's limits.


The Technocolor Mushroom is constantly shaking, with colorful shadows peering out it's edges. It also has eyes, unlike the mushrooms in it's source material.


Nintendo 30

Appears in the version of Super Mario Bros and is a very heavily kept secret from the player. The player may not even know the power-up exists. In World 1-1, the player must sacrifice all their lives to the first Goomba and then start the game up again. They must now kill the first Goomba, which will explode into a shower of Marios. The Marios collapse the floor, putting Mario in World 1-2. Mario must then get towards the end of the level and then utilize the glitch that would send them to Minus World.

At the end of Minus World, the Technocolor Mushroom sits at the end of the level next to the pipe that would normally restart the level. When the player obtains the Technocolor Mushroom and heads through the pipe, the game begins with Technocolor Mario in World 1-1. The player must then defeat about 250 enemies to generate a portal that leads to a boss fight with a new character that goes under the name NES-F178.

Super Mario Maker Phi

Using the Technocolor Mario amiibo, one can unlock the Technocolor Mushroom for their own use. It functions the same as it did in Nintendo 30 but no longer generates a portal to a secret boss fight and instead acts as an infinite star that lets nothing stand in it's way.

Super Mario 3D Galaxy

In this game, the Technocolor Mushroom allows Mario to destroy everything in its path (even level elements) and run incredibly quickly, but only for a little time. It's quite rare and it's normally hidden in the levels.

Super Mario: Elemental Journey

Returns as an amiibo-exclusive power-up like Super Mario Maker Phi. If used, any stars you collect will not count, as this is just for fun and speed-running through courses.
