The Slide (sometimes called sliding down a slope[1][page number needed] and also called Slope Slide[2]) is a move used by crouching on a slope. This move first appears in Super Mario Bros. 3 and reappears in many Mario games. The character sits and slides down the hill while gaining speed (they go even faster on icy slopes); they are invincible to most enemies while sliding, though they become vulnerable again upon stopping. Also, characters can do a midair jump by sliding into midair and jumping.

In Super Mario Bros. 3, Frog Mario and Hammer Mario cannot slide.

In Super Mario World, it is also possible to slide up a hill by crouching while running up one. Beach Koopas are also capable of sliding against Mario.

As of New Super Mario Bros., sliding has the same point chain as Invincible Mario.

In Super Mario Run, when Mario walks on a slope, he will slide automatically.

In later Mario vs. Donkey Kong games, steep slopes cause the Minis to slide down uncontrollably. Although this can be detrimental in some situations when spikes are located at the base of a slope, sliding can sometimes be used to attack enemies, such as Shy Guys, Pokeys and Cursed Mini Marios, or dispel fragile Rock blocks. Minis turn in the other direction when they encounter uphill slopes, as they cannot climb them. Damage can be prevented in a long-distance fall if the player quickly sets up a slope with Red Girders or Purple Conveyors under the Mini that falls, making the toy slide on it instead of breaking.
