The Slide Attack[1] (or Slide-attack)[2] is an attack that can be performed in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! This move can be used only in co-op mode, and it has the ability to spin out opposing racers and steal their items. To use the move, the player that utilizes the items must press either the L Button button to do a Slide Attack to the left or the R Button button to do it to the right. Because the move quickly shifts the kart slightly to the left or right, it can be either useful or hindering to the driver, depending on which time it is used.

If Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Toad, or Toadette holds an item that causes them to face the player (Bananas, Fake Item Boxes, Mushrooms, etc.), they slide-attack in the wrong direction.
