The Sinking in Lava Item Jump is a basic trick used in Super Mario Maker.

How It Works

When an item falls into lava it will slowly sink. During this time it is possible for Mario to jump off of them.

Mechanics

  • Mario is unable to land on a sinking POW Block unless it is thrown or makes contact with ground.
  • Springs that are sinking in lava will not be able to bounce Mario and instead act like a regular platform. An update on version 1.47 made it where springs will still act like springs when sinking in lava on levels created after the update.

Variations

Dropping

Note: This method does not work with a POW Block

Lava Surfing

Dropping an item on a winged muncher that comes out of a pipe will cause the item to be sent flying across the lava when it goes back into the pipe.
