Patches of mud

Mud is a mixture of strata and water. It has made several appearances in the Mario franchise as an obstacle, especially the Mario Kart series, and its purpose is usually to slow a character's movements. Mud first appears in Super Mario Kart.


Mario Kart series

Super Mario Kart

Mud appears in Super Mario Kart, in both Choco Island 1 and Choco Island 2. In both courses, they appear as puddles throughout the track; driving through them results in the player slowing down and mud being thrown behind the kart. In Choco Island 2 specifically, a large portion of the track is taken up by a mud puddle.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit

Mud reappears in Mario Kart: Super Circuit, reappearing in the same tracks with the same mechanics as before, though mud no longer is shown being thrown behind the kart and the mud has a lighter texture.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, mud appears throughout Waluigi Stadium, composing most of the track's off-road areas.

Mario Kart DS

In Mario Kart DS, mud appears throughout Wario Stadium and in Delfino Square's shortcut prior to the bridge.

Mario Kart Wii

Mud in Toad's Factory in Mario Kart Wii

In Mario Kart Wii, mud reappears in Waluigi Stadium and Delfino Square. The cave section of N64 DK's Jungle Parkway has mud added to the off-road portions. The final area behind the Finish Line at Toad's Factory also features mud.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

In Mario Kart 8 and its Nintendo Switch port, mud appears on DS Wario Stadium and Excitebike Arena.

Mario Kart Tour

Mud in SNES Choco Island 2

Mud reappears in the returning courses SNES Choco Island 1, SNES Choco Island 2, SNES Donut Plains 2, GBA Sunset Wilds and DS Luigi's Mansion in Mario Kart Tour. Mud also appears in RMX Choco Island 1 and RMX Choco Island 2.

Super Mario series

Super Mario Galaxy

In Super Mario Galaxy, mud is found on the Boulder Planet in Good Egg Galaxy. Various sections of mud are on this planet, and standing in it will result in Mario's movement speed and jump height being reduced.

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Mud in Boulder Bowl Galaxy

In Super Mario Galaxy 2, mud functions the same way as its predecessor. If Rock Mario rolls over mud, he does not slow down. It is found on the Cylindrical Planet in Sky Station Galaxy and the Boulder Planet in Boulder Bowl Galaxy.

Dr. Mario World

Large Muddy Coins in Dr. Mario World

In Dr. Mario World, mud is used to cover Muddy Coins. The mud on it can be removed by hitting the coins. Once it is cleaned, the player can receive the coin.
