Mini Mario is a Mario form in New Super Mario Bros. that Mario can obtain if he grabs a Mini Mushroom. Mario becomes smaller and can fit through most tiny gaps as well as run on water and jump higher. But just like regular Mario, if he is hit he automatically dies. In New Super Mario bros., if Mini Mario defeats Mummipokey in World 2 and Petey Piranha in World 5 he will move onto World 4 and World 7 instead.
In the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series there are little Mario wind up toys called Mini-Marios that were stolen by Donkey Kong in the first game and Mario must recover the Mini-Marios from six regular levels in each world and then clear a Mini-Mario level. In the Mini-Mario level Mario must have the Mini-Marios spell out the word toy and have them make to the toy box. If any Mini-Marios are hit by obstacles Mario will lose one. The amount of Mini-Marios at the end of a Mini-Mario level will determine how many hits he can take during the Donkey Kong battle. Mario can leave with a maxium of six Mini-Marios. In Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis the player must direct a set amount of Mini-Marios to the level's exit and if one is hurt by an obstacle the Mini-Mario dies. There is also a Golden Mini Mario which can give the player bonus points if he directs it to the exit. Also in each level of each world there are the letters M-I-N-I-M-A-R-I-O which spell out Mini Mario and can be collected for bonus points.
