How can you recognize Fire Mario without colors?

I never knew that was supposed to be a feather on Mario’s head!
As a kid, I always thought it was like that medical thing Dr. Mario wears on his head.

What? I always thought this was something like a small mirror or a lamp. A feather? Unbelievable! *_*

Cacildo´s note: This is from Super Mario Land 2, for the original Game Boy. The explanation is simple: since the game boy didnt displayed any colors, the only way for the player to be reminded that mario is in Fire Mario mode was to add something to the sprite. So they added a feather (got this info here )
