[edit] Super Mario Bros. 3

Beanstalks would match the color scheme of the world they are found in Super Mario Bros. 3. Like if they were in World 2, then the Beanstalk would be blue. In the All-Stars and Advance versions of the game, the head of the Beanstalk would look like a Piranha Plant, this trait would stay throughout the series.

[edit] Super Mario World

Super Mario World would see the beanstalk return to being just the color green and would come out of the breakable blocks after they have been hit. The beanstalk will continue to rise even if the Block has been removed by Mario to create a shortcut. If the player is carrying a P-Switch, they will not be able to climb normally though they can kick the item up, start climbing then hold the Y Button to catch the item as it comes down.
