The Side Somersault (named Side-flip by Prima Games' guides and also named Cartwheel) is a high jump that debuted in Super Mario 64. It typically grants a small amount more height than the Backwards Somersault. It is useful when the player wants to immediately jump high to reach high ledges. To use it, the character must run in one direction, then simultaneously turn to run in the other direction and jump.
