Super Mario World (スーパーマリオワールド, Super Mario World), commonly abbreviated as SMW, is a Super Nintendo/Super Famicom game that featured Mario, Luigi and introduced the character of Yoshi. It was released on November 21, 1990 in Japan, August 13, 1991 in North America and then April 11, 1992 in Europe.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
Yoshi debuted in this game. He can be found in some blocks and ridden.
Mario's Side Special, Cape, is based on the Cape Feather power-up in this game, which gives Mario a cape he can use to swing and damage enemies as well as fly once he gets a running start. The Mario Tornado and Luigi Cyclone both may come from the Spin Jump in this game. Yoshi's Final Smash, Super Dragon, is based on powers Yoshi can obtain in Super Mario World, depending on what color Koopa shells Yoshi eats, specifically the powers obtained after eating a Red or Blue Shell. Bowser Jr. uses the Clown Car, which first appeared in this game, for most of his moves. His down special move, Mechakoopa, also comes from this game. Mechakoopas first appear in this game and are thrown by Bowser in the final stage of the boss battle.
The Melee stage Yoshi's Island, which reappears in Brawl and Wii U, comes from this game. It is based on the standard overworld levels. Super Mario World is also one of the four game styles represented in Super Mario Maker.
"Yoshi's Island", "Title / Ending (Super Mario World)" and "Super Mario World Medley" come from this game. "Yoshi's Island" is a banjo-based remix of the song that plays on most athletic levels. Later on in this remix, a woodblock beat will be added. This is derived from how a woodblock beat is added to the music whenever Mario rides Yoshi. "Title / Ending (Super Mario World)" is a medley of the song that plays on the title screen and the song that plays on the ending. "Super Mario World Medley" starts off with the "level start" jingle, followed by the ground level variant of the theme used in the game's levels. It leads into an interlude with percussion used whenever playing a level while riding Yoshi before continuing the ground level theme until it goes to the drumroll after clearing the level tape, followed the Special World/Super Star theme before finally looping back into the ground level theme.
There is a trophy of Mario riding Yoshi in Melee that was distributed at certain Nintendo events in Japan. The trophy can now only be accessed in NTSC versions with the help of a hacking device; it was removed entirely from the PAL version of the game.
Yoshi's red, blue and yellow alternate costumes in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U are based on those specific colored Yoshis in Super Mario World.
