Hopping in has several additional functions in other games. Hopping in Mario Kart 64 can let players use shortcuts. In Mario Kart DS, hopping when going over a Boost Padramp allows the player to perform a High Jump. Hopping off a ramp (pressing ) on Mario Kart 7 allows the player to perform a trick, which will give a small boost upon landing. Hopping reappears in Mario Kart 8, and it functions as it does in Mario Kart 7.
