Rotate Pipes are rotatable Warp Pipe segments that appear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis and Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!
Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis
Rotate Pipes first appear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. They are introduced in Room 3-1 in Pipe Works. They are enclosed in frames which feature an output on all four sides, as their main function is to connect two ends of a Warp Pipe. When swiped in a certain direction with the stylus, a Rotate Pipe will rotate 90°. If swiped left or down, they will rotate 90° clockwise; if swiped right or up, they will rotate 90° counterclockwise. There are two types of Rotate Pipes: one with a curved shape and a curved arrow, and a straight pipe with two arrows.
If a Mini enters a Warp Pipe with an unconnected Rotate Pipe segment, it will wait at the end of the Warp Pipe until it is connected to the Rotate Pipe segment. A Rotate Pipe can be rotated while Minis are inside; however, they will continue to move inside the Rotate Pipe until reaching an end connected to a Warp Pipe.
Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!
Both types of Rotate Pipes return in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! with the same function. They are introduced in the Plus Mode version of Sandstone Stroll in Room 2-6+.
