The Midair Spin Jump is a basic trick used in Super Mario Maker that allows Mario to gain extra height by Spin Jumping off an enemy in midair.

How It Works

When Mario performs a Spin Jump, he is able to jump off enemies even when they are stunned. This allows him to jump off them while in midair.

Basic Midair Spin Jump

This is done by throwing an enemy into the air and Spin Jumping on it on the way down.
