The Spin Jump is a move able to be performed in various games. It was introduced in Super Mario World.
Spin Jumps were introduced in Super Mario World. They could be used to bounce off of certain enemies that couldn't be jumped on with a normal jump (like Spinies and Piranha Plants) or destroy others in one hit (like Rexs and Dino Rhinos). If in Super Mario or Luigi form, it can destroy Rotating Blocks. If in Fire Mario or Luigi form, fireballs will be thrown in both directions while spinning. If a Cape Feather has been obtained, the cape will swing during the jump.
In Super Mario Sunshine, a spin jump can be performed by spinning the analog stick, then jumping. It could also be performed by spinning the control stick while in midair. The former provides greater heights than most jumps. In addition, spinning will get rid of Goop stuck to Mario. Mario can squirt water in many directions while Spin Jumping.
