Game Styles

The Wall Clip is a TAS level trick used in Super Mario Maker. Wall Clips make it possible to perform a Wall Jump in styles where it is not normally possible. It also makes it possible to enter floating doors.

How It Works

Walls and Pipes are not 1 solid object, but are instead made of individual blocks. This allows Mario to stand on top of these blocks (usually for 1 frame) by clipping into the wall. There are four main categories for getting wall clips: Momentum Based, Left, Standing and Boot.

Wall Jumps

While getting a Wall Clip can be done without any special animation, doing a wall jump requires Mario to be in a certain state. A Wall Jump can be performed by doing any of the following actions:

  • Cape Dive
  • Ducking
  • Item Throw
  • Power-up Attack

This does not apply to Standing Wall Clips or Boot Wall Clips.

Momentum Based Wall Clips

This version of the wall clip requires Mario to be moving faster than normal run speed.

There are many setups that look visually similar to a wall clip that don't actually require clipping into the wall, and as such, can be done at regular running speed.
