Game Styles

The Meow Dive is an advanced trick used in Super Mario Maker that allows Mario to Spin Jump off an enemy in midair by jumping into it.

How It Works

This trick is done by Spin Jumping into a enemy in a way that allows them to be even with Mario's feet after they are bumped. This allows Mario to catch up to them and jump off them in midair.

Fire Flower

Fire Mario is able to do a Meow Dive without needing to descend to catch up to the Bob-omb. This is because a Bob-omb will slightly stall in the air after being hit by a fireball.
