In Super Mario Bros. there's really no need for a favourite, each one is a straight upgrade, Mushroom -> Fire Flower -> Star; and Super Mario Bros. 2 wasn't particularly power-up oriented. Super Mario Bros. 3 was the first one where there were actual points at which you'd have to choose which power-up to use, in which my favourite is definitely the frog suit. Besides my love of frogs, making my least favourite kind of level(fuck swimming) easier is just plain sweet. That's not to say it's an easy choice, though, the tanuki suit is wicked fun. In Super Mario World, of course it's the cape, for all the same reasons as it was the tanuki suit in Super Mario Bros. 3.

In the 3D games it's a bit harder to pick a favourite item since you generally need to use a specific one in order to do something, less like weapons and more like level-specific gameplay changes, or sometimes the challenge is in doing what needs to be done before the item's time limit runs out. I'd say my favourite in Super Mario 64 is the Wing Cap just because the others don't actually change gameplay much; my favourite in Super Mario Sunshine is the Hover Nozzle, even if it doesn't really count as a power-up since it's the default, I find it way more fun to use than the other nozzles; and my favourite in Super Mario Galaxy is the Ice Flower, because skating is the second coolest way to get around in that game behind flying through space.

I don't know about the NSMB games, but I know the Penguin Suit is fucking awesome. I'll report back on my favourite SM3DL power-up once I've played it more.

Alright, let's get cracking:

Super Mario Bros.: Fire Flower
Super Mario Bros. 3: P-Wing
Super Mario World: Cape Feather
New Super Mario Bros.: Blue Koopa Shell (Probably my favourite item ever)
Super Mario Galaxy: Red Star (It was painfully underutilized. I would've liked to see more of it)
New Super Mario Bros. Wii: Mini Mushroom
Super Mario Galaxy 2: Fire Flower
Super Mario 3D Land: Statue Leaf

Now for my least favourites, just for the heck of it:

Super Mario Bros.: Starman (I liked it, but I didn't really find it as useful as the others)
Super Mario Bros. 3: Frog Suit
Super Mario World: Fire Flower
New Super Mario Bros.: Mega Mushroom (Way too overpowered)
Super Mario Galaxy: Spring Mushroom (WHAT WERE THEY THINKING)
New Super Mario Bros. Wii: Ice Flower
Super Mario Galaxy 2: Spring Mushroom (I HATE YOU SPRING MUSHROOM)
Super Mario 3D Land: P-Wing (Way too overpowered)

Why? :(

I like Triple Bananas most
That isnt a powerup its an item. Power ups in the mario kart series even if i allowed it to be entered here would be the star, super leaf, and thats all i can remember.
Bullet Bill is kinda like another since you transform into one. Same with Mega Mushroom.

And, even if I didn't include it, what you mentioned has more power-ups than Super Mario Bros. 2, which also happens to be part of the platformer series
