Best Answer

The "P" stands for Paratroopa. In Super Mario Bros. 3, the P-Wing allows Mario or Luigi to fly in the air with their Raccoon forms for an unlimited amount of time. However, if the brothers are hit while flying, or receive a non-flying-based power-up within a level, they will lose the power of the P-Wing. Additionally, the effects of the P-Wing only last until the level ends. After that, the brothers are left with their basic Super Leaf abilities.

Super Mario Brothers or Super Mario Brothers 3 need answer soon?

Well, Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 3 are both great, nostalgic games that are great for people of all ages. But, Super Mario Bros is great because of the fact that it is so simple and basic, that it's fun. Super Mario Bros 3 is more advanced in music, graphics, and gameplay. So, Fun and Simple is Super Mario Bros, but Good-Looking and Challenging is Super Mario Bros 3.
