Border Jump is a minigame in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. The Border Jump is hosted by the Border Bros in a small tower in the Beanbean Borderlands, the border between the Beanbean Kingdom and the Mushroom Kingdom, lying at the Stardust Fields. The Border Jump tests Mario's and Luigi's jumping skills. They have to jump over a rope while the Border Bros twirl and swing the rope in every direction. Mario and Luigi have three lives each in this minigame, and must complete it to progress through the game.
If the brothers return to the tower, the Border Bros will ask them to play a more difficult version of Border Jump, Border Jump 2, which upon completing will allow them to play Super Border Jump, then Super Border Jump Sunshine. When the latter is beaten, the brothers can then choose which level of Border Jump to play. Should they choose "No" if asked to play, the Border Bros will offer them to play Complete Border Jump, which is made up of the four previous challenges and not chosen from the level selection. After the first mandatory play of the first Border Jump game, Mario and Luigi can win Hee Beans by playing it thereafter.
In the background of the room, a picture of an end-of-level castle from Super Mario Bros. is visible, complete with a flagpole that tracks the brothers' progress. When the brothers win, a number of points and fireworks appear next to the flagpole in the screenshot.
The names of these minigames are very similar to any past Mario game, but simply replacing Mario Bros/Mario with Border Jump.
The name of the Border Jump is a play off of an expression referring to illegally crossing borders.
