Megavitamins is Dr Mario's Standard Special.

Overview

The Megavitamins are similar to Mario's fireballs. However, they have a unique bounce arc, fall faster, do more damage, and have distinctive sounds used from the original Dr. Mario game (When he throws it, it makes the disappearing pill sound, and when hit, it makes the virus type eliminated sound). They are also used in his taunt, in which he tosses a Megavitamin up and catches it, but this one does not do any damage. The megavitimins are harder to dodge, making them harder for approaches and camping.

Trophy Description

Megavitamins
Megavitamins come in six color combinations of red, blue and yellow. Dr. Mario uses these capsules by tossing them into contaminated bottles to destroy viruses. The origin of these wonder pills is a mystery, but the most likely theory is that they're the result of Dr. Mario's lifelong efforts to find a cure for the common cold.

Origin

Dr.Mario

The Megavitamins in the original Dr. Mario game.

In Dr. Mario games, these were used to eliminate viruses. When three of the same color vitamins were put together with a virus of the same color, the vitamins and the virus would be destroyed.

Trivia

  • When Kirby uses the vitamins, the collision sound is the same as the sound of a Green Shell.
