“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...”

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