Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Powerups can be great and all, but sometimes one of them just runs away with your heart. Super Mario Bros. 3's Super Leaf was way more useful and generally more common, but sometimes I played through five worlds of that game just to use the Kuribo's shoe. Well, okay, I played through two worlds and then used the flutes to bypass that stupid fish.

I'm not sure if I just enjoy the near-invincible state that the shoe grants the Bros. or if it's the obscene appearance of the item, but mowing down Goombas and Spinys with an oversized wind-up shoe makes me smile every time. I've been pretty okay with a few of the series' following powerups, too.

The Mario series is definitely not the only source of great powerups, though. Contra's Spread Gun is the only reason I ever got past the first level, for example! You should share your favorites with us in the comments, riiight after you check this week's Japanese hardware sales after the jump!
