Slope Slide (sometimes called Sliding Down a Slope or Slide) is a move used by crouching on a slope. This move first appears in Super Mario Bros. 3 and reappears in many Mario games. The character sits and slides down the hill while gaining speed (they go even faster on icy slopes); they are invincible to most enemies while sliding, though they become vulnerable again upon stopping. Also, characters can do a midair jump by sliding into midair and jumping.

In Super Mario Bros. 3, Frog Mario and Hammer Mario cannot Slope Slide.

In Super Mario World, it is also possible to slide a hill up by ducking while running it upward. Beach Koopas are also capable of sliding against Mario.
