The Super Leaf is an item that first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3. When used, it will transform Mario or Luigi into Raccoon Mario or Raccoon Luigi. They will grow raccoon ears and a raccoon tail. The tail has several abilities like using the tail to spin near enemies by pressing the B Button. It can also help the Mario Bros. descend slower when they are in the air by wagging the tail. They can also be used to hit ? Blocks to make the item pop out. And when the P-Meter is filled, they will be able to fly.
It returns in Mario Kart 7. It can be used as a offensive and a defensive weapon and will allow the player to deflect any oncoming projectiles and whip other racers with the tail that is at the end of the kart. It will only last ten seconds after being used.
The Super Leaf is set to appear in the upcoming Super Mario 3D Land. Mario will turn into Tanooki Mario instead of Raccoon Mario but have the same abilities as Raccoon Mario. The Leaf will also have eyes in this game. A Golden Super Leaf also appears in Super Mario 3D Land, it will make Mario invincible when he uses the item.
Becoming a staple item once more, the Super Leaf appears in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS, turning Mario into a Raccoon once again. It is speculated to appear in New Super Mario Bros. U (working title) based on the Miiverse comments seen in a Nintendo Direct screenshot.
