Specials Edit

Down B Edit

Strong Drive

Metal Mario starts charging a swing with a golf club, and then lets it fly. If it does not connect, a golf ball flies forward. Similar to Kirby's Hammer Flip, he can move slowly side-to-side while charging. Sends up and slightly forward. Trips if held too long.

Neutral B Edit

Tyre Roll

Metal Mario pulls out a tyre and rolls it along the ground. Sends forward and slightly up.

Side B Edit

Kart Racer

Metal Mario hops into the Standard Kart and drives it around. If he hits an opponent, he knocks them back. He can only turn around once; when he does, he drifts and the Mini Turbo deals fire damage to anybody behind him. Trying to turn again will cause Mario to hop out of the car. You can also get out by pressing B or jumping -- the attack button turns the kart.

Up B Edit

Glider Ramp

Mario boosts diagonally upward, and then a glider pops out which gradually loses lift as he glides. This has no hitboxes, but the kart has a wind-box while boosting upwards.

Final Smash Edit

The Race is On

Metal Mario jumps into the Gold Standard and races forward rapidly. If he hits someone, the target is run over by multiple racers to rack up damage before being driven over by Metal Mario in the Gold Standard under the effects of the Mega Mushroom, launching them. The racers that they will be run over by include: Dry Bowser on the Bone Rattler, King Boo in the Steel Driver, Pink Gold Peach in the GLA, Tanooki Mario in the Tanooki Kart, Toad in the B Dasher, Toadette in Birthday Girl and Lakitu in the Cloud 9.

Taunts Edit

Down Taunt Edit

Metal Mario sits in the Standard Kart, where three Red Shells orbit him.

Up Taunt Edit

Metal Mario jumps in the Standard Kart and hops rapidly.

Side Taunt Edit
