There are some worlds that are cold, causing Mario to shiver. I noticed if you put on the aviator cap and coat, he will stop shivering.

What other clothing sets will keep Mario warm?

    This is exactly the kind of useless question I love – Wrigglenite Nov 2 '17 at 14:30
  • I've expanded on Pyrite's answer below. Is there any more information you would like me to add? – Stevoisiak Jan 16 '18 at 18:49

The Aviator Outfit, the Snow Outfit, and the Space Suit are the only clothing sets that will keep Mario warm in cold environments.

In addition, these outfits will keep Mario cool in hot environments: Caveman Outfit, Boxer Shorts, Swimwear, the Space Suit and the Resort Outfit.

    Does this affect anything in gameplay? Or its just an animation difference? – Fredy31 Nov 2 '17 at 20:09

    @Fredy31 No gameplay difference. – Kroltan Nov 2 '17 at 20:26

    @Kroltan what do you mean, no gameplay difference??!?!? You don't want Mario to freeze to death, do you?? – MCMastery Nov 3 '17 at 12:15

    @MCMastery he'll only freeze to death if you swim in cold water, and that will happen regardless of clothing. – Kroltan Nov 3 '17 at 12:35

    @Pyritie Please research it and expand your answer. This is a VERY CRITICAL ISSUE!! :D – Alfro Nov 3 '17 at 15:17

After reading Pyrite's answer, I decided to do a bit more experimentation with the outfits. I visited each kingdom in the game to see how the weather affected Mario's well-being.

Mario has 3 different states depending on the weather and his outfit.

  • Cold: Mario will shiver immediately when idling.
  • Normal: Standard idle animations.
  • Warm: Mario wipes sweat off his forehead and fans himself after idling for a few seconds.

Outfits that keep Mario warm

  • Aviator Outfit: (Lost Kingdom - 10 purple coins)
  • Snow Suit: (Snow Kingdom - 10 purple coins)
  • Space Suit: (Moon Kingdom - 10 purple coins)

Outfits that keep Mario cool

  • Caveman Outfit (Cascade Kingdom - 10 purple coins)
  • Boxer Shorts (Any Kingdom - 1,000 gold coins)
  • Poncho (Sand Kingdom - 10 purple coins)
  • Swimwear (Lake Kingdom - 10 purple coins)
  • Resort Outfit (Seaside Kingdom - 10 purple coins)
  • Football Uniform (Moon Kingdom - 150 gold coins)

Cold Kingdoms (Mario shivers)

  • Sand Kingdom (night/underground) - Tostarena
  • Snow Kingdom - Shiveria

Warm Kingdoms (Mario fans himself)

  • Sand Kingdom (day)* - Tostarena
  • Lost Kingdom - Forgotten Isle
  • Seaside Kingdom - Bubblaine
  • Luncheon Kingdom - Mount Volbano


  • Mario will fan himself in the Sand Kingdom regardless of what outfit he is wearing.
  • Mario will fan himself when wearing a warm outfit in a non-cold kingdom.
  • Hats do not seem to have any effect on Mario's reaction to the weather.

Thanks to IGN for the list of outfit locations and prices.

    What about the outfit you get for completing the 503 moon objective? That one plays weirdly with animation. (Not being more specific to avoid spoilers) – CAD97 Nov 4 '17 at 4:39

    @CAD97 That outfit does not change Mario’s animations for hot or cold weather. (I assume you meant the retro one) – Stevoisiak Nov 4 '17 at 4:42
  • I'm not certain on mario always sweating in the sand kingdom. I'm fairly sure I wore the resort outfit there and wasn't sweating. I'll double check. – Pyritie Nov 4 '17 at 21:08
  • The Sand Kingdom's underground areas also all count as cold areas, regardless of it being day or night above. – Question Marks Nov 6 '17 at 13:16
  • @StevenVascellaro Can you update this in light of the new outfits in 1.2? Do any of those keep Mario hot/cool? – DonielF May 1 '18 at 4:28
