The Hidden Block Bypass is an intermediate trick used in the game. This trick allows Mario to jump through Hidden Blocks without activating them.

How it Works

Hidden Blocks can only be activated when Mario is jumping and hits the block from below. A Hidden Block will not be activated if Mario passes through it without jumping, such as: uncrouching, climbing a vine or riding a platform.

Variations

Duck Jump

If Mario is Super Mario or higher he is able to start ducking and jump before his hitbox is lower than the hidden blocks allowing him to perform a duck jump when hidden blocks are at head level.

Normal

Ducking Wall Jump

Note: This method only works on levels created before version 1.46.
When Mario duck jumps and enters a wall slide his head will become higher than the bottom of the Hidden Block allowing him to pass through it.
