Mario performing a Midair Spin in Super Mario Run

The Midair Spin is a special move that Mario and his allies can perform in all 2D Super Mario games since New Super Mario Bros. Wii (excluding New Super Mario Bros. 2). It consists of a 360-degree spin in the air that delays the character's falling for a split second, allowing them to stay in midair longer. It is possible to perform multiple Midair Spins while in midair.
