Mario doing a Triple Jump.

The Triple Jump, also called Multiple Jumps[1], is a special move used in the Super Mario games since Super Mario 64 (bar Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World). Anyone in these games who can Double Jump can use this move, with the exception of Yoshi in Super Mario Galaxy 2; he can perform a Double Jump and a Side Somersault, but not a Triple Jump. This Jump is even higher than the Double Jump, and the character spins around during it. To use it, a player must jump three times in a row while moving (whereas the Double Jump can be done on the spot in the 3D games), meaning they need a little space to execute the move.

In Super Mario 64, once Mario acquires 120 Power Stars and talks to Yoshi on the roof of Mushroom Castle, he can then use an expanded jump which causes him to become invincible during his third jump, protecting him from otherwise damaging falls and enemy attacks. However, this special triple jump is slightly lower than the normal version. With the Wing Cap, Mario can take flight by triple jumping, but unlike a normal triple jump, he can just jump in place.

In Super Mario Sunshine, Mario can also execute a Triple Jump by doing a Spin Jump and jumping again once he lands.

In Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Super Mario Odyssey, if Mario performs a successful Triple Jump and does not move after the final landing, he performs a pose and, in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Odyssey, he cheers. Mario can also perform a Triple Long Jump in Super Mario Odyssey.
