A Mini Mario is a little toy Mario that the player winds up, and it walks. They appear in the games: Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! and Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!. In the third Mario vs Donkey Kong game, the player can make girders for the Mini Marios to walk on. In the boss battles, the player must make them gradually climb up so they can press a button, which will usually shock the boss, but sometimes it sends a rocket at it. In order to beat a level, the player must get all of the Mini Marios to the Mini Mario door. After they all get to the door, it will play a short melody, then show the player's score.
