SMG2 CloudFLower

Artwork of Mario in his Cloud Mario form

Cloud Flowers are power-up items in Super Mario Galaxy 2. They transform Mario into Cloud Mario. Once collected, Mario's hat turns white and three little clouds will follow him. Upon shaking the Wii Remote, a cloud will appear under Mario (three per flower). This allows Mario to reach high, places out of reach in his normal form. However, if Mario touches water or takes damage, he will lose his suit. It is not required for Mario to lose the suit to get another set of three clouds, but they do not accumulate.
