Power of this Verse
Despite being a light-hearted and colorful franchise, the verse is incredibly powerful. While its low tier characters range from Building level to Small City level, many of them in the higher tiers can range from Island level to Multi-Solar System level, with the most powerful beings and artifacts in the series usually being Universal or Multiversal. In terms of speed, many of the characters and vehicles are Massively Hypersonic, with some of them being Sub-Relativistic and multiple times faster than light in combat speed and movement. The verse has many hax powers as well, including, but not limited to, Gravity Manipulation, Reality Warping, Spatial Manipulation, Transmutation, and creating dimensions, with several of them being in the form of powerful magic. Notable user are Kamek, Wizpig, King Boo, and surprisingly, Princess Peach.
It also has a possible supreme being which is referenced as a "Force/Gentle Pull" who seemingly has the control over the destiny of the Marioverse, is above time and space itself, is so powerful that the combined laws of the universe can't stop it, was hinted that it is far stronger than the combined powers of the top tiers who are Multiversal and is possibly omnipresent (however, all these feats were only measured through the words of Rosalina and power-scaling, thus leaving the true level of its powers unknown outside of speculation). Overall, this is a verse that definitely should not be underestimated.
