I have had so much fun on my big vacation to the Mushroom Kingdom. I saw all the sights: Princess Peach’s Castle, Toad Town, Mario Kart Stadium, and I even took the ferry to Yoshi’s Island! Yup, it’s been a blast, but all good things must come to an end. Time to head to the airport… oh no! How am I going to get all these power-ups I bought through security? Let’s see which ones have the best chance of getting past the Toads working TSA. Yeah, they have TSA in the Mushroom Kingdom. Nobody said it was perfect!
#35 — Cannon Box
This is a gun.
#34 — Poison Mushroom
You know those stories you read about cops saying they have to go to the hospital or need medical leave because they simply touched fentanyl? What if that was real.
#33 — Drill Mushroom and Spin Drill
I think anything that will allow you to punch a hole in the bottom of the plane is a non-starter.
#32 — Hammer Suit
“Excuse me sir, would you like to explain why you have several dozen hammers and a bulletproof suit in your bag?”
#31 — Super Star
Airport security loves things that are rapidly glowing and moving around, right?
#30 — Fire Flower
It’s a bad sign for TSA when they grab your bag and it’s very warm.
#29 — Bee Mushroom
They don’t allow you to have bees in here.
#28 — Cloud Flower
They won’t even let you have half a bottle of Dr. Pepper in your bag, I can’t imagine they’ll let you take concentrated water vapor through.
#27 — Bubble Flower
You could maybe get away with this though if you can get it to fit in a Ziploc bag.
#26 — Ice Skate
Ok, I’m breaking kayfabe here for a second because I really want to know. Can you bring ice skates as carry-ons? They’re basically shoes with knives.
#25 — P-Wing
I hope disembodied animal parts are a cause for concern for security, just on a moral level. Like, what’s next, a dog’s leg? “Come on through.”
#24 — Propeller Box and Mushroom
I think you’d have a lot of trouble getting these to fit in the bin. Also, blades. But hey, if the plane goes down, you could at least kinda… hover back down to safety.
#23 — Wonder Flower
We have not invented an x-ray machine powerful enough to capture what the fuck is going on with a Wonder Flower.
#22 — Elephant Fruit
They have those gruesome posters to dissuade poaching for a reason, you know.
#21 — Rock Mushroom
Just do yourself a favor and check this. You don’t want to be carrying around a giant rock anyway.
#20 — Spring Mushroom
This is going to be one of those things where there’s nothing on paper saying that you can’t take this, but the guy wants to feel powerful so he makes up a reason you can’t take it on the plane.
#19 — Boo Mushroom
This thing is cursed and radiating evil but I don’t think there’s anything they can do to keep you from bringing it on the plane.
#18— Power Balloon
I’ve been in a lot of lines at the Orlando International Airport where children are devastated they can’t take their Mickey balloons through. Just try not to cry in front of security in case it doesn’t work out, all right?
#17 — Boomerang Flower
It’s not a weapon, it’s an ornamental centerpiece!
#16 — Blue and Green Shells
I think these will be ok, just don’t drop them while trying to repack your bag and send them flying all over the place. Green ones bounce side to side, blue ones attack the pilot.
#15 — Frog Suit
We’re getting into the “animal costume” section of the list where I don’t think security will keep you from having this, but they’re definitely opening your bag to take a look.
#14 — Ice Flower
It’s cold enough that it probably won’t even register on their monitors.
#13 — Super Leaf
If you’re going to Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia or Washington, you’re fine. Anywhere else? Maybe stuff it a little deeper in your bag, just in case.
#12 — Penguin Suit
This one is going to be a bitch to try to fold back up after they open your bag.
#11 — Super Mushroom
This one can really go either way. If it’s really busy, you’re probably fine. Just don’t eat it on the plane unless you sprung for the extra legroom.
#10 — Carrot
Should be all good for domestic flights, just make sure to declare it with customs if you’re going international.
#9 — Mega Mushroom
No way this fits in the overhead compartment. You’ll get it through security and have to check it at the gate
#8 — Tanooki Suit
Maybe the most overtly sexual of the animal costumes. TSA will be making fun of you in the break room later. Not trying to yuck anyone’s yum but c’mon. They’re TSA.
#7 — Kuribo’s Shoe
As long as you take it off before going through the metal detector, they will not care.
#6 — Wing Cap/Metal Cap/Vanish Cap
Same goes for hats.
#5 — Cape Feather
This is prime material for your backpack’s smaller pockets. You could also stick it in your wallet and it’d be fine, probably.
#4 — Super Acorn
If you want to carry a bunch of acorns in your bag, go ahead. You do you.
#3 — Super Bell
You’re just bringing home a present for a very special little guy who’s been waiting very patiently for their parents to get home.
#2 — Double Cherry
Take it from a guy who often buys a pack of Haribo Double Cherries at the airport, you’ll have no issues here.
#1 — Mini Mushroom
Throw this in your bag and you might even have trouble finding it when you get home. Enjoy one on me, why dontcha!
