Super Mario World (Japanese: スーパーマリオワールド, Sūpā Mario Wārudo, commonly abbreviated SMW) is a Super Nintendo game that featured Mario 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.

Super Smash Bros. series


Super Mario World introduced the concept of Mario riding a dinosaur helper named Yoshi in a platforming title.

Yoshi, a starter character in all three Super Smash Bros. games premiered in this game. Also, the stage Yoshi's Island was based on the levels of this game. In addition, the music to Yoshi's Island is a remix of Donut Plains' main level theme.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Yoshi's Final Smash, Super Dragon, is based on powers Yoshi could obtain in Super Mario World, depending on what color Koopa shells Yoshi eats.

  • Red Koopa Shells have Yoshi spit out fire.
  • Blue Koopa Shells allow Yoshi to fly.
  • Yellow Koopa Shells allow Yoshi to stomp and release dust clouds, which damage enemies
  • Blinking Koopa Shells give Yoshi all these powers.
  • Green Koopa Shells do not do anything.

Also, a remix of the "Ending" and "Title" music can be used on the Delfino Plaza stage, thanks to the My Music feature.

There is also Trophy of Mario riding Yoshi in Melee that was distributed at certain Nintendo events.

The Mario tornado might come from the spin jump of this game, as well as his down aerial in Melee.

Mario's side special, Cape was almost certainly based on the Cape Feather powerup in this game which gave Mario a cape he could use to swing and damage enemies.

The game itself is also available as a playable masterpiece in Brawl.

One of Luigi's specials, Green Missile, could be loosely based on the pipe canons, where if Luigi (or Mario) entered a pipe that took them underground and found the exit, they would sometimes fire out of a canon upon exit.
