This page offers a guide on all of Mario’s Special Attacks in the Super Mario RPG remake. You’ll learn all you need to know about how to unlock special attacks, how much damage they do, and how to use them!
List of all Mario’s Special Attacks¶
As you can see below, there are only two “unique” attacks for Mario, but you will unlock more powerful versions of Jump and Fireball.
|Jump on an enemy’s head. Hit “A” as you land to do more damage.
|Repeatedly hit “A” to fill the wheel in the timed period. The more you hit “A” the more damage you’ll do.
|Same as Jump but you can perform repeated jumps if you press “A” perfectly.
|Same as Fireball but a more powerful version.
|Same as Super Jump but you jump on enemies randomly.
|A Fireball attack that targets all enemies.
Jump Special Attacks¶
Unless you purchase the Jump Shoes from the Mushroom Kingdom Item Shop, there are some enemies that are resistant to jump attacks. As you can probably guess are an enemy that are resistant to jumps.
In fact, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can even unlock special armors from a NPC in for landing consecutive jumps using the Super Jump ability. For 30 jumps, you’ll unlock the Attack Scarf and for 100 jumps (ouch!) you’ll get the Super Suit. In addition to getting good at landing those perfect jump attacks, you’ll also need to find an enemy that can withstand that many jumps. A jump-resistant enemy like a Spikey is a great option if you’re looking to complete these crazy jump challenges.
The Fireball attacks are great for enemies that are weak to fire (use Thought Peak to discover weaknesses and resistances). And, as long as an enemy isn’t resistant to fire damage, this attack can also be a big hitter against enemies who aren’t weak to fire too. The quicker you button mash “A” the more of the wheel you can fill and the more damage it’ll do. So, for those of you experienced in hardcore button mashing, you’ll have a great time with the various Fireball Attacks.
If you’re in a fight with loads of enemies, Ultra Fireball can be a great solution (like Mallow’s Thunderbolt) for getting rid of them all in one hit.
