The Metal Cap is an item that first appears in Super Mario 64. It is activated when Mario presses the Green Switch in the Cavern of the Metal Cap in Super Mario 64. It is usually found in a green box. When worn, the player is invulnerable (except for taking damage from falls) and can walk underwater. They may also walk on lava without danger, though will be slowed severely and have a reduced jump. Additionally, it will damage enemies on contact in a similar way to a punch. In Super Mario 64 DS, Wario gets the same powers the Metal Cap grants when he picks up a Power Flower.
In Super Mario Odyssey the Metal Cap appears as a suit in the Coin Shops, but this is it's only appearance and it's only for aesthetic effect, you don't get the skills and powers of the Metal Cap (such as walking underwater) like in Super Mario 64.
- Paying homage to Super Mario 64, Mario's Metal Cap appearance in Super Mario Odyssey resembles his look from the N64 Game.
