Cat Mario is a form of Mario introduced in Super Mario 3D World. In this form, the player can run up walls and lunge towards enemies to scratch them with their claws. When running across ground, Cat Mario will cling to the ground and run at a crouching height. The form can additionally allow for climbing up Goal Poles. Cat Mario can also climb walls. However, there is a limit of time for Cat Mario to climb. After the time limit reached, he gets tired and falls down while paws still on the wall.
Mario's suit is yellow, while Luigi's is green, Peach's is pink, and Toad's is blue, which match their colors (Luigi's suit, however, has rounded ears, a spotted body, and dark green ears and tail tip). The form is similar to Tanooki Mario and Flying Squirrel Mario.
