A Pit Hack is a hack that is incredibly hard, requiring an inhumane amount of skill. These hacks cannot be completed without extreme slowdown or even frame-advance. Pit hacks are made to push the difficulty of Super Mario World to its limits. These hacks are mostly fun to watch a TAS of, but playing it, however, is a different story. Frame-perfect tricks and pixel-perfect jumps are commonly used in pit hacks.
The name "pit hack" comes from the 'Pit of' series from YouTube user MoltovMarioWorld. The hacks of the series are called: Pit of Despair and Pit of Death. He also created Pit of Shells, but it was canceled.
