For today's illustration i decided to go with Raccoon Mario. Even though Super Mario Bros. 2 is my favorite of the original trilogy, i can't deny the greatness that is Super Mario Bros. 3. All of the new power suits were just too awesome with my favorite being the elusive Tanooki suit.
I would scour the levels looking for that tiny little bear/raccoon/whatever-the-heck-it-was suit, eventually find one and then of course accidentally run into an enemy before i got the chance to turn into a statue...*sigh.*
At least you could always count on the good ol' Super Leaf. It might have been a poor-man's Tanooki suit but at least you could still fly.
