Cosmic Mario is a character in the Mario series. He is considered a rival to Mario; in Super Mario Galaxy, he appears in a level whenever a Cosmic Comet flies over it, and he will race Mario to the Power Star. If Mario wins, he takes the Power Star with him to the Comet Observatory; if he loses, he loses a life as if he had died in the level.
He bears several similarities to Shadow Mario in terms of appearance and behavior; the only major difference is that Cosmic Mario does not seem to be another character in disguise, like how Shadow Mario turns out to be Bowser Jr..
Cosmic Mario has the physical shape of Mario, but inside he has a blue, star-like pattern, as if he was made of a cosmic matter, hence the name. He has a high, squeaky voice and does everything exactly like Mario. Because of these reasons, Cosmic Mario is sometimes mistaken for a similar character, Shadow Mario, or sometimes a Cosmic Clone.
Cosmic Mario and Cosmic Spirit appear in Mario Kart: Double Blast!! as an unlockable pairing. To unlock them, the player had to unlock 20 Expert Staff Ghost Data records in Time Trials. Cosmic Mario's kart body is the Sapphire Meteor, which is automatically unlocked along with Cosmic Mario and Cosmic Spirit. His Special Ability is the Cosmic Spin, which allows him to perform a "star spin" that will attract nearby opponents into the user's vehicle and leave them knock them over. He's able to do this 2 times in 20 seconds.
|Grand Tour Character|
Cosmic Mario appears in Mario Golf: Grand Tour as a downloadable character, as part of the Galaxy Pack. In the game, his maximun hit is 213 yards, causing the ball to curve to the right when hit. His shot is also considerably low and similar to Luigi's, having a slightly better impact on the ball than Mario, but also slightly matching Mario's power. Cosmic Mario, as well as Dry Bowser, were originally going to be an alternate costumes, but they were scrapped and later included as separate DLC characters.
Cosmic Mario doesn't directly appear in Super Wario Odyssey, but a character very similar to him known as Cosmic Wario appears instead. He replaces the Roving Racers of Super Mario Odyssey, and Wario must race him to the Power Moon and get there before he does. A red version of Cosmic Wario, called Red Cosmic Wario will appear after the player defeats the first Cosmic Wario, having a harder time to beat due to his more complicated maneuvers that let him go through the course faster.
