Cloud Lifts are a type of lift that first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3, appearing in World 6-2. There, they move to the left, and are the main mode of transportation.

In Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, several Cloud Lifts appear in the final level of the Tree Zone, Final Boss: The Big Bird. These Cloud Lifts have blinking eyes and simply move back and forth.

In Yoshi's Story, Cloud Lifts are stationary platforms that come in large, medium, and small sizes. They are common floating objects in outdoor levels.

In Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, they are moving platforms which can be jumped through. Some Cloud Lifts are invisible, and can only be seen by Ground Pounding near them or shaking the Wii U GamePad.

Cloud Lifts reappear in Super Mario Maker 2, where they can be used exclusively in the Super Mario 3D World game style. They replace Lifts and Flimsy Lifts from the other game styles. Like Lifts and Flimsy Lifts, their length can be changed. They can move vertically or horizontally in all four cardinal directions.
