The Long Jump (called Leap on the official Super Mario 3D Land website[1]) is a move used in the 3D Super Mario games since Super Mario 64 (bar Super Mario Sunshine, due to the presence of F.L.U.D.D. and the Hover Nozzle). It also appears in Donkey Kong 64 and Super Mario Run. To use this move, the player usually must crouch while in motion and jump, causing the character to jump a long horizontal distance. The move is primary used to clear huge gaps between platforms and move faster; this is especially helpful in timed missions.

In Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2, this move can be chained with a Spin to perform a Double Kick, which can defeat enemies and activate items.

In Super Mario Run, characters will Long Jump if the screen is tapped while they are on a Long Jump Block.
