Mario swinging around a tightrope
“Let's say you find yourself hanging from a rope... Shoot just a little water, and you'll start to swing, right? Well, if you have good timing, and you do that several times... you'll start spinning around the rope. I swear, it's true! Then, if you let loose with a full stream of water... you'll gain crazy momentum, which you can use to jump! Yeah! That's what I like to call the Super Whirl Jump! You can go amazingly far with it. Truly. It's incredible! Don't ask me why I know this. I don't really know myself...”
Pianta, Super Mario Sunshine

The Super Whirl Jump is a special move that can be performed by Mario in Super Mario Sunshine. When Mario is hanging from a tightrope, he can use FLUDD to shoot some water. Mario then starts to swing slowly. If he shoots more water with good timing, he will start swinging around the rope. If Mario lets loose when the player uses A Button, he will jump forward with high momentum. This difficult-to-control move can allow Mario to reach the platforms near The Hillside Cave Secret or reach the platforms high near where Petey Piranha was in Episode 5. The player can hold B Button to let Mario stop swinging around the rope before he jumps.
