Mushroom: Greatly increases your speed for a few seconds when activated. Ideal for making a break to pull off a Hyper Strike or bouncing the ball off a wall for a tricky shot past the keeper.
Bob-omb: Walks in a straight line for a short distance before exploding, knocking back all players on the opposing team.
Banana: Places a large banana peel on the pitch. Any players who touch the banana peel will fall over.
Green Shell: Travels in a straight line when fired, bouncing off the pitch fences. Any players hit will fall over.
Red Shell: Homes in on the nearest opponent when thrown, hitting them and making them fall over.
Star:Makes a character invincible for a short time and boosts all of their attributes. Opponents touched while the Star is active will be knocked over. Using a Hyper Strike or Charged shot while the Star is active will remove the invincibility, absorbing it into the ball to increase the power of the shot. Stars are only awarded to teams repeatedly tackled while off the ball.
In addition to being rewarded for tackles off the ball, items are also spawned onto the losing side’s pitch. If you’re losing by two goals or more, expect multiple item boxes to be thrown on at the beginning of any reset. Hyper Strike orbs appear in a similar fashion to items and can be collected by both teams.
