Power Squat Jump
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
The Power Squat Jump, also known as the Squat Jump or Super Jump, is a jump that Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad can perform in Super Mario Bros. 2 and its remakes. It is done by holding down on the to charge up and then jumping. Characters do not necessarily have to remain ducking; they can keep the charge until they actually jump, though it resets if the player moves left/right before jumping. Unlike the normal jump move, this jump makes the characters jump higher and reach places they normally can't. In Super Mario Advance, the characters perform a backflip upon using the Power Squat Jump.
Although this move did not appear in early versions of Mario Bros., the Mario Bros. remakes found in the Super Mario Advance series (and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga), let Mario and Luigi perform this move.
