Nabbit is a character that first appears in New Super Mario Bros. U. After completing Stone-Eye Zone, he is first seen fleeing from a Toad House. A Toad will ask the player to catch him. He will run through different levels and the player has one hundred seconds to catch him. If the heroes succeed, then the Toad will reward the player with a P-Acorn Mushroom. Nabbit is also a playable character in New Super Luigi U/Deluxe, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and in Mario Golf: World Tour (DLC).


New Super Mario Bros. U/New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

In the game, Nabbit steals from various Toad Houses. After this catastrophic event, Toad comes out of the house and asks Mario to help him catch the thief. The player only has 100 seconds to catch speedy Nabbit. After catching Nabbit, Toad will reward Mario with a P-Acorn. Nabbit is found in the following levels:

In New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, he is a playable character who also teams up with other characters. He cannot transform with any power-up and he is immune to enemies. After defeating Bowser and Bowser Jr., he is seen watching other characters come to Princess Peach and leaves.

New Super Luigi U

Nabbit makes his first playable appearance in the Year of Luigi game, New Super Luigi U. He replaces Mario and brings several new abilities to the table.

Nabbit is invincible to everything except falling and lava/fire. He will react to certain objects found in castles and towers but will not lose a life because of them. While he cannot use any power-ups, it is a good idea to collect them as at the end of every level, each power-up you collected will transform into a 1-up that will be stored.

Nabbit can be played as in single player as well by pressing ZL on the Wii U Gamepad or Pro Controller and B on the Wii Remote while selecting the level.

Mario Golf: World Tour

Nabbit's first spin-off and handheld appearance was Mario Golf: World Tour on the 3DS. He is obtained by purchasing either the Flower Pack or Season Pass. His hole in one animation shows him running on what looks to be like Waddlewing Warning from New Super Luigi U. Like his previous playable appearance, he is a DLC-only character.

Super Smash Bros. (for Wii U and 3DS/Ultimate)

Nabbit appears in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, & Super Smash Bros Ultimate as a stage hazard on the Mushroom Kingdom U stage.
