Wall Jump is a variation of Mario's standard jump. Using this move, Mario jumps onto one wall where he sticks to its surface. He can then jump off of the wall that he is on and jump higher than he can with a Triple Jump. The wall jump technique is unique to the console platformers, Super Smash Bros. series, and the New Super Mario Bros. series. In the console platformers, Mario uses it mainly to reach new heights to obtain stars and 1-ups. In the handheld platformers, the wall jump can be used to avoid falling down bottomless pits.
