    In Super Mario Odyssey, Mario and Cappy collect Power Moons to fuel up their airship. Power Moons are new for Mario Odyssey and they're the only real source of power we see in any of the worlds we travel to, so I had to ask... are these Power Moons actually that strong? I've decided to figure out just how powerful they actually are. Is this the biggest lie in all of Mario canon? Well I'm about to tell you!

    I thought power moons powered the sail on top of the oddesy and the sail took them where they needed to go but the oddesy was broken so they had to collect power moons again to get to bowser.

    I did some research on which game Mario is the strongest in his games but at first I thought it was Mario galaxy because in his basic suit can withstand the force of outer space but ACTUALLY it would seem more like oddesy because of a couple of reasons. 1, Mario can turn into a FREAKInG SKELETON and has the same movement as an acrobat. 2 he can carrying CHUNKS of the moon in his infinite pockets with no sweat and as you can see in the sand kingdom their is a total amount of 65 moons in this kingdom and keep in mind that the weight of each moon can round up to a couple trucks full with rocks so basically Mario is carrying houses in HIS POCKETS
