as I said in previous topics, Ice flower (except for 38A).

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

Let's just say, I never gotten really far in the original SMB3, and plus, I couldn't keep the Tanooki suit for more than about 10 seconds in the original game tbh

I like the Ice Flower for powerups and the Lakitu's Shoe for an add-on type.
I usually do not like water levels in Video Games.

My Projects:

Custom World - Really Old Game, and pretty bad too. This was more of a experimental episode.

New Super Mario Bros Remaster - NSMB DS but in my style

Luigi's Quest - The Seven Trials - My Current Game I'm Working On. This is what I always wanted to make as a kid, and I've been working on this for 2 Years probably.

Toad with a fire flower. Great for speeding the level if it is flat.

I'd pick the Ice Flower in the General and the Tanooki Suit with Toad due his double jump ability.

The optimal powerup in that case is an Ice Flower

Riding an ice block is faster than toad's max speed. Given if the land is flat enough and long enough, you can throw the ice block onto the ground hop onto it, go to the left side of the ice block and just ride until the end. This is of course assuming everything is placed in such a way you can use it.

The fastest powerups in some levels are actually the ice flower due to this property and not the tanooki suit/leaf

I actually don't like the additional powerups in 38A.

Blue Shell / Penguin Suit: I died endlessly many times from riding / sliding into a pit. This is nowhere a benefit if you play levels blind (most of them don't give you good occasions anyway). When having a blue shell you're basically forbidden to run, otherwise you start riding and the game also doesn't let you end your ride easily. They're also weaker than in the original games, i.e. you can kill less enemies and get hurt yourself easier. The only real benefit of the penguin suit is swimming in water, however that physic can also be tricky to handle.
Oh and also the ice flower loses plenty of its appeal compared to 1.3/2.0 because of the changed scoring system.

Frog Suit: totally garbage. The penguin suit gives you the same effect underwater.

Propeller Mushroom: I like this one the most out of the mentioned, but the gliding angle is really short (even shorter than Toad's / Peach's leaf glide)

Mega Mushroom: it sucks that it takes away your power-up. Sometimes it's also written into your inventory.
