The slide is an overworld move learned in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. While the player is dashing, pressing A Button, B Button, or Y Button immediately causes Mario, Luigi, and Paper Mario to throw themselves onto the ground and skid in the direction they are facing for a brief moment, canceling the dash in the process. This move is primarily used in certain missions to catch certain Paper Toads and Nabbit; whenever the player is within range of catching the aforementioned targets, an exclamation mark appears above Mario's head to allow the player to react in a timely manner.
