An early idea for a Mario Power Up in SMB3 was Centaur Mario. What would his powers be?

Why isn't the Toad Suit there?

Speaking of, what would Toad Suit's power be?

The toad suit could give super strength and speed at the cost of jumping power.

The ability to flip people off and say "Thank you, Mario, but the princess is in another castle."

Perhaps Toad Mario could turn the tables on Bowser's minions by posing as an innocent Mushroom Retainer and reciting the inevitable "THANK YOU GOOMBA! BUT OUR MARIO IS IN ANOTHER LEVEL". We should just be grateful that Tanooki Mario's abilities had nothing to do with the actual creatures of Japanese folklore, which apparently crushed people with their disproportionately large set of... never mind. Google "Tanuki" for further enlightement.

EDIT: I suppose somebody beat me to the joke. Ah well.

Wasn't the Toad Suit just a misinterpretation of the hammer bro suit found while rom diving?
Weegee, Tanuki were also able to change shape with leaves.
That was a joke.

I can't find an icon of the Hammer Suit but I do know it doesn't have a mouth. This is obviously a Toad Suit.

I don't think that's OBVIOUSLY a Toad suit. That could even be a construction worker.
No! I don't want that!

The Centaur suit would probably be like yoshi, were you can stomp on pointy stuff such as spinies.  Also, you would be able to run slightly faster.  You might even give a second player a ride.
Victory... is my destiny!

Chup's right; when you get the Hammer Suit from the big block in 7-8, that "Toad Suit" sprite is what comes out of the block. Probably a palette issue.

That factoid may be worth adding to TMK's Super Mario Bros 3 "Lost Levels" page...
