Armadillo Mario is able to dig freely underground, and he can use it to finding secrets, to defeat some certain enemies (Thwomps and Rhomps) and to continue moving though the level. Also, he's invunerable to small fireballs and iceballs, but it turns back to Mario if attacked by rock boulders and strong fireballs and iceballs. Sometimes, he can use his carapace to roll arround (like Rock Mario). He's easier to control, but he's less stronger than Rock Mario.
Mario can attract to metalic walls/platforms, climbing them. He can also can attract nearby coins, metalic objects and metalic enemies. When atract someting, he can pull it off, destroying it. Also he can sink easily to the bottom of any body of water with metalic ground (only metalic grounds).
They appear by hitting a Coin Block enough times before it expires. They are also shinier than a regular ? Block. It cannot be taken off unless he hits an enemy.

Jumping on a Koopa Troopa allows the player to kick the Koopa Troopa out of its shell and take it. Additionally, while carrying a shell, the player can have Mario and the others climb inside of it and slide across the ground in it, similar to Shell Mario. Like this, the player can knock aside any enemies they ram into.
