Game Style-Specific Powerup[edit]

The Propeller Mushroom is the Game Style-Specific Powerup. It'll slowly move to the right while also moving down and up a little. After some time, the Propeller Mushroom will fly away. The Propeller Mushroom will swim similarly to Goombrat and Goombud swimming in the Night Ground Course Theme.

When a player collects it, they will become their Propeller Form and will be able soar up into the air by spinning before heading back down. When a player is descending they can ground-pound to make their descent faster, hit blocks from the top, and kill certain enemies.
