This page is loooong...
Consider grouping related content into additional subpages to ease readability.
This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

Super Mario Maker 2 is the sequel to the Wii U original, featuring a new style based off of Super Mario 3D World with unique features, a full-fledged Story Mode, local and online multiplayer (in both co-op and competitive flavors), new elements in Course Maker (including slopes, the Superball Flower, a few items from Super Mario Bros. 2, and Link), Super Worlds, Ninji Speedruns, unlockable Mii costume parts, various tweaks around the edges, the ability to play as Luigi, Toad, and Toadette, and the removal of Mystery Mushrooms (you'll get your chance one day, Windows logo).

Not to be outdone by the first game's amazingly obscure bit of recycling, SMM2 adds another - the "Pop & Win!" Super World minigame, where your character must inflate a balloon to get extra lives, is a gamified version of this Famicom Disk Writer animation sequence, even using the same music and sound effects. (Several Disk Writer sequences feature Mario and Luigi {though not the balloon one}, so there's an indirect connection here.)

Outside of being on a console that people actually bought, that's pretty much it.

Unused Graphics


To do:
  • The Castle Bridge tiles are actually used if a glitch is triggered.

Placeholder Castle Bridge

Your favorite graphics from Super Mario Maker are back. Once again, there are castle bridge graphics that resemble the Super Mario Bros. ones, and once again they're unused. The snow theme (both day and night) and sky theme even have unique bridge sprites!

Mysteriously, almost every finished castle bridge design has brown bits at the bottom that are seemingly from the placeholder tiles. Probably just a minor mistake done when Nintendo added the finished sprites.

Super Mario Bros.

Dark P-Block

SMM2 Dark P-Blocks.png

In the Underwater (Night) tileset, there are two tiles for darkened P-Blocks that have an unknown purpose. The empty one has a different shape than the one used in-game. These sprites can be seen by performing a glitch that allows you to port objects from the 3D World style and back. These sprites are the same color as the background seen when removing the alpha channel of this tileset, meaning these sprites are just leftovers in the alpha channel.

Character-Specific Flags

SMM2 Unused character flags.png

Four character-specific flag designs that likely would have been used after grabbing the flagpole, much like in the New Super Mario Bros. U style.

Super Mario World


Day Night
SMM2-SMW-square-day.png SMM2-SMW-square-night.png

A square found 16 times in each Plains tileset.

Clear Pipe

Day Night
SMM2-SMW-Semitransparent pipe-day.png SMM2-SMW-Semitransparent pipe-night.png

Crudely-drawn placeholder graphics for the Clear Pipe exist in both versions of the Forest tileset. In the final game, the Clear Pipe is exclusive to the 3D World game style, though these graphics are used if the Clear Pipe is glitched into the SMW Forest theme.

These pipes seemingly disappear when disabling the Forest tileset alpha channel due to them using the same colors as the background, suggesting that the original sprites were deleted and the sprites visible are leftovers from the alpha channel.

Buzzy and Spiny Helmet Variants

To do:
At least one of these can be activated in-game, through a 2P-editing workaround or glitch.


Sprites were added in v3.0.0 for the Buzzy Beetle and Spiny helmets that were intended to be used in conjunction with the P-Balloon powerup, and have a series of texture animations (float_cancel_ftp, float_end_ftp, float_ftp, float_jet_ftp, float_move_ftp, and float_start_ftp) which make use of them. However, pairing both powerups simultaneously in-game results in the helmet being discarded, rendering these unseen.

They can be triggered through co-op editing: First, Player 1 has to hover the cursor on the character. Then Player 2 has to grab the P-Balloon. When Player 1 opens the power-up menu, Player 2 has to put the P-Balloon on the character, and then Player 1 has to select either Buzzy Helmet or Spiny Helmet. These sprites also keep even after switching from edit mode to play mode. You can view this glitch by clicking this link.

Unused Mii Outfit Textures

Chompless Chomp-Dog Shirt

To do:
Can these be added back into the game somehow?

SMM2 chomp-dog shirt texture.png

The texture for the arms and neck of the Chomp-Dog Shirt Mii outfit has an unused area for the main shirt without the Chain Chomp.

Slobbery Shirt

SMM2 slobbery shirt texture.png

The texture for the Slobbery Shirt has Bowser Jr.'s texture, which goes unused in this shirt.

Extra Parent-and-Child Skirt Frame

SMM2 Parent-and-Child Skirt texture frame 17.png

There is an unused 17th frame for the Parent-and-Child Skirt, which has a darker shadow and only one Blooper Nanny.

Early Pipe Skirt Texture

Early Final
SMM2 early pipe skirt texture.png SMM2 final pipe skirt texture.png

The file for the Skull Skirt contains an early version of the Pipe Skirt texture. This texture is 128×128 pixels, while the final texture is 512×512 pixels.

Early Shy Cap Texture

Early Final
SMM2 early Shy Cap texture.png SMM2 final shy cap texture.png

An early texture for the Shy Cap with a wireframe template, a bigger mouth, and no face, arms, or tail.

Unused Yoshi Hat Texture

SMM2 unused yoshi hat texture.png

An unused texture for the Yoshi Hat that only consists of a nostril texture. These nostrils are different from the ones that are used.

Unused Models

Super Mario 3D World

Unused Ferris Wheel

SMM2 SM3DW Unused Ferris Wheel.png

An unused model of a Ferris wheel named 3W_DVObj_airship_FerrisWheel. Based on the file name, this likely would've appeared in the background of the Airship theme.

Unused Donut Block Model

Super Mario Maker 2 Unused 3D World Donut Block.png

An unused model for the Donut Block named editwait_block_chikuwa_model. This model is untextured and is shaped like the Donut Block from other game styles. The model has data for 3 textures named ChikuwaBlock2x4_Alb, ChikuwaBlock2x4_Nrm, and ChikuwaBlock2x4_Spm. This model is the same model used in the original 3D World.

(Source: Original TCRF research)

Unused Cloud Block Model

SMM2 3DW Unused Cloud Block.png

An unused model for the Cloud Block named editwait_block_kumo_model. This model, like the Donut Block, is untextured. From the front, it's more wide than the final model and from other views there is an indent in the middle, making it look like there are 2 clouds.

(Source: Original TCRF research)

Unused Snake Block Model

SMM2 3DW Unused Snake Block.png

An unused model for the Snake Block named editwait_block_snake_model. This model has a texture, which depicts it being brown, similar to a hit ? Block. This model has a duplicate in the Fast Snake Block files named editwait_block_snake2_model.

(Source: Original TCRF research)

Unused Sounds

To do:
There are unused element voice sounds, but they may all be leftovers from SMM1, so check there too.

Some sounds are leftovers from the first game.



The sound that played in the first game when placing wings. In the sequel, wings aren't an object that can be placed and are instead an option that appears when holding down on an object. Located in Pack\StaticHighFreqSound.pack\Edit_Wing.bars.

(Source: Original TCRF research)

Super Mario Bros.


Leftover sound from Costume Mario when appealing.



Two sounds of Weird Mario from the first game still exist within the game's data.


A sound of Gold Mario from New Super Mario Bros. 2, used for the gold and silver costumes in the first game.

(Source: ecumber [1])


The sound that played in the first game when placing a Mystery Mushroom. Located in Pack\StaticHighFreqSound.pack\M1_EditKinokoFunny.bars.

Unused Subworld Themes

Some levels that don't use the subworld have their subworlds set to a specific theme that isn't Overworld.

Course Theme
Swinging Claw Ropes Course Castle
Impassable Castle Forest
Lava Bubble Limbo Castle
Koopa Troopa Car, Go! Castle

Ancient Seesaw Fortress

The subworld for Ancient Seesaw Fortress contains a small unused area at the very top of it that contains walls of red and blue ON/OFF Blocks, a Seesaw, two blue pipes, and a bunch of hard blocks.

SMM2 Ancient Seesaw Fortress hidden sub world area.png

Unused Behaviors

To do:
Replace the videos with more straightforward, uncommentated ones.

Dying in the Hub

If the player hacks the game to remove the invisible edge barriers in Story Mode and falls down the front, the screen will fade out and the game will bring Mario back to the middle of the hub world. This was likely intended as a failsafe if the player managed to glitch past the invisible walls.

(Source: Skelux)

Story Mode-Exclusive Parts


The Stone element can be hacked into the Course Editor, and has a number of functionalities normally not seen in Story Mode:

  • Stones disappear completely if the player switches into the SMB game mode, since that style doesn't allow the player to hold an item.
  • Stones can be enlarged unlike other objects which can be picked up, taking up a 2×2 tile space. Big Stones cannot be picked up or tongued by Yoshi, and do not crush the player despite their size.
  • Stones can be given Wings or a Parachute. Winged Stones can be stood on, and hitting a Winged Stone from below will not destroy the wings.
  • Stones can be placed inside Koopa Clown Cars.
  • When thrown, Stones are able to kill most enemies in one hit, including the Angry Sun. Throwing a Stone four times at Bowser will kill him.
  • When placed into a Pipe or a Blaster, only one Stone will be produced at a time. If the original Stone disappears, another Stone will be produced.
  • Stones react to low gravity in the Night Sky and Night Airship themes.


The Toad course part can also be hacked in, though their functionality is much more limited and broken. When in the editor:

  • Toads in other styles than New Super Mario Bros. U use the in-game Toad sprite, however they are a bit smaller than the player Toad.
  • Toad sprites are only visible when idle. They are invisible in the editor, and when they are following the player.
  • The most Toads the player can collect is 16, however the game stops the visual and sound effects for collecting more than 10 of them.
  • Idle Toads cannot be enlarged, given Wings or a Parachute, tongued by Yoshi, or placed in Clown Cars or Lakitu's Cloud.
  • Toads can be placed into Pipes, Blasters, ? Blocks, and Lakitu.
  • Toads are immune to Grinders, Twisters, and Icicles.
  • Toads do not interact with Trampolines.
  • Toads which touch the Moon itself are damaged.

10/30/50 Coins in Blocks

When 10/30/50 Coins are modded to be placed inside a hittable block, they display an unused behavior when the block is hit in which they are affected by gravity. This also goes for Pipes.

Unused Part Weights

The SM3DW-exclusive parts all have unused weights when placed on a Seesaw. These can be seen by glitching the Seesaw into the SM3DW style.

Part Weight
Crate 1 Unit
Boomerang Flower 1 Unit
Super Bell 1 Unit
Super Hammer 1 Unit
Ant Trooper and Horned Ant Trooper 1 Unit
Big Ant Trooper and big Horned Ant Trooper 2 Units
Skipsqueak and Spiny Skipsqueak 1 Unit

Exclusive Course Parts between 2D Game Styles and SM3DW

To do:
Document these course parts.

Through a variety of glitches, several course parts exclusive to the original four game styles can be forced over into the SM3DW game style, and vice versa. While these course parts lack sprites (and or appears invisible), they are semi-functional to various extents. Unfortunately, most of these course parts will crash the game when imported.

Course Part(s) Functions in the 2D Game Styles? Functions in 3D World Style? Notes
Bowser Jr. Yes No
Bumper Yes Yes
Burner Yes No Crashes the game.
Buzzy Beetle Yes Yes Appears invisible and cannot be defeated by jumping on it (and once doing so, the game gives out points). The "Buzzy Beetle Shellmet" has the same behavior as well.
Cannon Yes No
Chain Chomp Yes No Exclusive to the 2D Gamestyles.
Dash Block Yes Yes A small glitch can occur if the player has the Master Sword powerup: using the dash attack into the Dash Block will cause the game to repeat the Shield sound repeatedly until the player is off the Dash Block.
Dry Bones Shell Yes Yes When you view this object in the Course Maker, it appears jumbled up. However, it appears as a Dry Bones (in a T-pose) when playtesting. If you attempt to "play dead", you will get stuck in place.
Fire Bar Yes No
Frozen Coin Yes Yes If the Builder Mario powerup is used on this course part, the part itself will turn into an already-hit ? Block.
Grinder Yes Yes
Koopa Clown Car Yes Yes
Lakitu Yes No Lakitu doesn't appear in-game once placed, and does nothing.
Monty Mole Yes Yes
Swinging Claw Yes No
Shoe Goomba Yes Yes If you try to make this object bigger or change it into the Stiletto, the game crashes.
Spiny Shell Yes Yes This object mostly functions as its regular counterpart (from the 2D gamestyles), but you are unable to wear it. For some reason, the game allows you to save a level with this object in it, rather than deleting the level itself.
Sun/Moon Yes Yes Allows for Night themes in the 3D World theme, which are inaccessible in normal gameplay.
The Koopalings Yes No
Tree Yes Yes Functions like the Vine object.
Vine Yes Yes The object itself will appear messed up, and the game will crash if you attempt to make Mario climb on it. You can avoid this by placing the Vine into a ? Block.
Warp Box No (singleplayer), Yes (online multiplayer) Yes The game will softlock if you enter the warp box in the 2D game styles. For some reason the game continues normally in online multiplayer.


Off-Model SMW Fire Mario

Fire Mario in the Super Mario World style uses some odd animations.

Normal Mario Fire Mario
SMM2-NormalMarioCarry.png SMM2-FireMarioCarry.png

The animation of carrying players is actually an early, placeholder version.

The outlines for Fire Mario's cap and shirt when riding in a Dry Bones Shell are miscolored red like the normal form, aside from his victory pose and the arm of fire shooting.

Some animations use Mario's untanned skin tone, like his normal form.

New Super Mario Bros. U Pipes

Super Mario Maker Super Mario Maker 2
SMM-NSMBU-WarpPipe.png SMM2-NSMBU-WarpPipe.png

Unlike in Super Mario Maker, pipes in the New Super Mario Bros. U style are shinier than they are in the source game. They somewhat resemble an early design of the pipes seen in early footage of NSMBU.

(Source: source needed)

Magikoopa in SM3DW Style

In the 3D World style, when Magikoopas turn blocks into Goombas, the game spawns the SMB/NSMBU Goomba object instead of the SM3DW one. This object displays different behavior, walking faster and not charging at the player when approached.

(Source: Spencer)

Removed Text

To do:
Check all languages.

The file that contains the descriptions of the Clear Conditions, Message\ReferenceMsg_*\GoalCondition.msbt, contains two used pieces of text for the Toad rescue Clear Conditions, labeled 01 ("Reach the goal with all [number] Toads in tow.") and 03 ("Reach the goal with [number] Toads in tow"), but none labeled 02. Judging from the numbering of similar sets of strings, 02 would have likely said "Reach the goal with at least [number] Toads in tow."

(Source: Original TCRF research)

Internal Project Name

The game's codename is "Slope", according to strings in the executable. The first Super Mario Maker had a codename of "Block".

(Source: ecumber05)

Regional Differences

Kamek and Spike Pillar

Similarly to the first game, the European English text refers to Magikoopas as "Kameks" and Skewers as "Spike Pillars". This also applies to the Magikoopa Mii outfit.

However, unlike the first game, the sounds when placing them are unchanged.

Revisional Differences

To do:
Add any more findings in v3.0.0 to the list.
Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Investigate and document the v1.0.1 update, which fixed unspecified issues. (Possible change: the player is no longer able to spin jump while holding an item in SMW.)

2019 Server Update

Released on July 24, 2019.

  • Upped the course upload limit from 32 to 64.

Version 1.1.0

Released on October 2, 2019, mainly focusing on online play.

  • A "Play with Friends" button has been added to courses in Course World, making it possible to play with friends without downloading the course first.
  • Players can now play online with friends in either Multiplayer Versus or Co-op mode.
  • The Nintendo Switch Online mobile app is now supported.
    • Players can automatically match online with people that were matched with via the app, and voice chat with them.
  • Some new features were added to Nearby Play:
    • Players can now choose between Multiplayer Co-op or Multiplayer Versus modes.
    • Players can now select courses uploaded to Course World as well as courses saved to Coursebot.
      • When playing a course saved to Coursebot, the host no longer needs to be connected to the internet.
  • LAN Play mode has been added. In this mode, players connected to the same Local Area Network can now play together wirelessly.
    • LAN Play mode can be accessed by clicking in the L Stick and pressing the L or R buttons in the Network Play menu.
  • If the connection is unstable before a multiplayer match starts, the match will be cancelled.
  • In Multiplayer Co-op, if everyone chooses to start over, the timer will now reset.
  • The text for S+ rank is now yellow.
  • If a player places Builder Boxes after a Warp Pipe, Clear Pipe, Door, or Warp Block, they break when other players exit said warp.
    • This does not happen with your own boxes or regular boxes.
  • All characters now take the same amount of time to move through a Warp Pipe, regardless of their state.
  • Players cannot match with other players using v1.0.1 or lower in Network Play.
  • Simplified the display of comments containing stamps.
  • Added a refresh/update button to Courses uploaded.
  • Added a list showing a user's 100 most recent First Clears.
  • Now displays a user's total number of First Clears.
  • Now displays a user's total number of world-record times.
  • Added a list of Official Makers in Leaderboards. These makers existed beforehand, but would have to be found via Course IDs/Maker IDs shared variously by Nintendo on social media and the game's official website.
  • Players can now switch between Touch with buttons or Touch only in the Settings menu in handheld mode.
  • Players can now play with horizontal Joy-Cons in all Game Modes.
  • Players can change their controller grip from Settings in the main menu.
  • Most known glitches were fixed.
  • L + R can now be used to start the game, in addition to ZL + ZR, with - the button prompt changed to mention the former as well. This was likely done due to Nintendo releasing a replica SNES controller for the Switch, which lacks the ZL/ZR buttons.
  • When using a controller, the player character now stays under the finger cursor while Y is being held, instead of just being moved to its position.
    • The scroll speed while holding Y was also drastically increased.

  • Players can no longer jump when they're stuck inside blocks, including ON/OFF Blocks.
  • Players can now place more objects in doors, similarly to Super Mario Maker.

Version 2.0.0

Released on December 5, 2019, focusing around new course elements.

  • Pokeys from Super Mario Bros. 2 were added, though they function the way they did in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and like the 3D World Snow Pokeys in the Snow theme.
  • Spikes from Super Mario Bros. 3 were added.
  • The Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda was added as a power-up in the Super Mario Bros. style. Collecting one changes the player to Link and drastically alters the moveset.
  • The Frozen Coin is added, a coin encased in an ice block that can either be used as a platform or melted using various fiery objects (except lava).
  • P-Blocks, blocks that toggle from solid to non-solid or vice versa by a P-Switch, were added.
  • Dash Blocks were added to the Super Mario 3D World style. When stepped on, the player receives a massive speed boost for a short time, but are restricted to jumping.
  • Ninji Speedrun was added. This mode pits players from around the world to compete for a best time in courses made by Nintendo.
  • The number of Likes a Maker has received are now displayed in the overview tab.

Released on January 7, 2020, in celebration of 10 million courses being uploaded.

  • The course upload limit was increased from 64 to 100, as in the original Super Mario Maker.

Version 3.0.0

Released on April 22, 2020. This was touted as the final major update, and with the massive amount of additions and changes, it certainly shows.

  • The SMB2 Mushroom was added in the SMB style. Collecting one changes the player to SMB2-style sprites and allows them to stand on enemies, pick them up, and throw them. Players can also pull up snowballs from the ground in the Snow theme.
  • The Frog Suit was added in the SMB3 style, working as it did in that game aside from allowing players to run across the top of water while holding an object or another player.
  • The P-Balloon was added in the SMW style, inflating the player and allowing them to fly around with the directional buttons, at the cost of not being able to stomp.
  • The Super Acorn was added in the NSMBU style, working as it did in that game.
  • The Boomerang Flower was added in the SM3DW style, working as it did in that game.
  • The Cannon Box, Propeller Box, Goomba Mask, Bullet Bill Mask, and Red POW Box were added in the SM3DW style.
  • All seven Koopalings were added in every style except SM3DW, with their SMW styles being completely redone.
    • In the North American 3.0.0 trailer, the Koopalings were shown in the SMW style using their sprites from SMB3. The final version of the update uses original sprites for them instead.
  • Three different variations of the Mechakoopa were added in every style except SM3DW.
  • The Cursed Key, based on the SMB2 keys, was added in the SMB style. Collecting one summons a Phanto to chase you, as it did in that game.
  • The ON/OFF Trampoline was added in the SM3DW style, and its bouncy properties can be toggled by the ON/OFF Switch.
  • Dotted Line Blocks were added in the SM3DW style.
  • A World Maker was added, allowing Makers to create a Mario game with up to 8 worlds (each with as many as five courses for a total of 40), in the form of Super Worlds.
  • Worldbot was added, functioning similarly to Coursebot regarding Super Worlds, with the total number of Super Worlds you can save being 6.
  • You can play Super Worlds uploaded from Makers in Course World.
  • If a Maker uploads a Super World, it will be displayed in the Overview section of their Maker Profile.
  • Added “Share to Friend List” to Options that will share your information to your friends in Leaderboards and Ninji Speedruns if allowed.
  • Added a list of Super Worlds a Maker has played to their Maker Profile if the "Share to Friend List" option is allowed.
  • Added a friend list to Leaderboards.
  • In Leaderboards, the order of the list of Makers you're following has been changed to display whoever uploaded a course most recently first.
  • More course tags were added: Art, Technical, Shooter, Boss Battle, Single Player, and Link.
    • Any course tagged with Single Player will not appear in Network Play.
  • You can now download courses that you posted to "My Courses" in Coursebot.
  • Added a list of friends' times to Everyone's Times in Ninji Speedruns if the "Share to Friend List" option is allowed.
  • A new opening animation was added showing off Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and the Koopalings. Much like v2.0.0's new opening animation, this will play upon first booting up the game after updating.
  • The behavior of Hammer Bros. was altered in this update: instead of pacing back and forth in one spot, as in previous games, they will continuously walk to the left or right, and will only turn around after touching the edge of the platform they are on or (sometimes) jumping. It's currently unknown whether this is a bug or intentional behavior.
  • Various issues, exploits, and bugs were possibly fixed.

Version 3.0.1

Released on July 14, 2020.

  • In the Course World, when the player opens the pause menu while playing Ninji Speedruns, they will not be able to perform any actions for a certain period after closing the pause menu.
