Function Gives ability to throw fireballs

Fire Flowers are common powerups that appear in each game throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series, granting the ability to throw fireballs. It can be found in a majority of the games' levels from different blocks. A similar powerup, the Ice Flower, behaves much like a Fire Flower, but throws iceballs instead of fireballs.


The Fire Flower gives the ability to shoot fireballs with the 1 key on a Nintendo Wii, and the X or Y keys on a Nintendo DS. The fireballs can cause the enemy to take damage, with normal-sized enemies being one-hit kills and larger enemies being able to sustain multiple fireballs. Skeleton enemies such as Dry Bones are immune to the fireball effect and cannot take damage.
