A Swinging Claw[1] is an object in Super Mario Maker 2 that can grab enemies and items. When the player approaches one, it drops whatever object it is holding. Swinging Claws can be placed on tracks, and they can even be used to swing the player. If the player is in a Swinging Claw's grasp, they can move left and right to build momentum before jumping out of it to gain more distance. In all four styles, they appear different. In the Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario World styles, they are depicted as generic claws, while in the Super Mario Bros. 3 and New Super Mario Bros. U styles, they are depicted as sentient claws with a face.
