“The bridge connecting Central Square to Top-Hat Tower is built to retract in an emergency. If this happens during your visit, don't panic—just use the switch to restore the bridge.”
Cap Kingdom brochure, Super Mario Odyssey

Sometimes Bridge is a location in the Cap Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. It is very similar to Glasses Bridge, connected to the other side of Central Plaza. Sometimes Bridge connects the plaza to the base of Top-Hat Tower. It has a double arch and a base shrouded in the sea of clouds. When Mario starts out in this kingdom, the bridge is missing. Throwing Cappy onto the nearby Lever Switch effectively pulls it up out of the clouds, revealing the bridge, allowing Mario to head to the tower.

Later on, a scarecrow appears on the other side of Sometimes Bridge, in front of the door to the tower. Tossing Cappy onto it makes a Power Moon appear on the other side of Sometimes Bridge. Mario must rush across the bridge and reach the Power Moon before it disappears to collect it.

According to the Cap Kingdom brochure, Sometimes Bridge is affectionately called such due to being built to retract in case of an emergency, explaining it being out of order during Mario's first visit. The brochure recommends using the Lever Switch to restore the bridge.
