The Spring Mushroom is a Mushroom in Super Mario Galaxy. It first appears in Toy Time Galaxy. It later on appears in Matter Splatter Galaxy, and Beach Bowl Galaxy's Purple Coin Challenge. Spring Mushrooms are silver Mushrooms with a spring-like head. When Mario touches it, he becomes Spring Mario. The Mushroom wraps a spring around Mario. He can jump higher, but no longer run. He will instead bounce around the level. Using the Spring Mushroom, Mario can reach items hidden in the air. By touching a Launch Star, Sling Star, an enemy, or water, will return Mario back to normal.
