ON/OFF Switches are gizmos that originated in Super Mario World.


ON/OFF Switches have two states, ON and OFF, which affect all ON/OFF Switches in the level. They can be toggled between by hitting an ON/OFF Switch.

They can be activated by a player hitting them from below, rolling, long-jumping or sliding into them, ground-pounding them or jumping on them in Big form. They can also be activated by a Shell, Thwomp, Skewer, Bob-omb explosion, Cat swipe, Superball, a Super Hammer swipe, or Link's arrows, bombs, or sword.

They affect the following Course Parts:

  • Dotted-Line Blocks - which are only solid when they are the same color as the switch.
  • Certain Track forms - which change which path items will travel along at the junction.
  • Modified Conveyor Belts - which switch direction when a switch is hit.
  • Spike Blocks - which extend their spikes when they are the same color as the switch.
  • Track Blocks - which only move when the switch is ON.
  • ON/OFF Trampolines - which will swap between being bouncy and not being bouncy.

In the Night Ghost House/Underwater Course Themes, spotlights are smaller when the switch is OFF.
