It would first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3, it would allow Mario or Luigi to fly for an entire level in their Raccoon forms. If they are hit while flying, they will lose the power-up and plummet to the ground. After the level has finished, they will return to their basic Super Leaf abilities.

When used on the map screen, the letter "P" will shown in the sprite and indicate they have the P-Wing ability. The "P" will be gone after they return from a level to indicate they no longer have the ability.
