Brush Flower (also known as the Paint Flower) is a power-up that first appeared in Super Mario 3D Land II: Bowser's Ultimate Revenge. It transforms Mario into Paint Mario.


This flower looks like a brush with eyes on a stem with two leaves at the bottom. At the tip, there is usually an assortment of colors.


This power-up turns Mario into Paint Mario, where he can shoot Paint Balls using his magic paint brush. He can also use it to create things, such as a wall to block enemies, or make a bridge to cross large gaps. He can shoot them at enemies to stun them ormake them slip. Paint Mario can also use Paint Balls to solve puzzles, such as getting a right color combination.
