Random drops are items that are obtained from enemies after they are defeated. These only appear for a short time before they disappear. As the name implies, what is obtained, if anything, is picked at random for each defeated enemy.
- Coins (mostly when playing as Wario, but possible with all characters)
- Health refills (for characters that use a health meter instead of a power-up health system or when in The Megaverse)
- Weapon drops (for character who can change weapons, such as Arthur and Roll)
- Ammo drops (for characters that use an ammo meter for their weapons, like Ryu or Proto Man)
