RTA Guide/Lakitu Skip
Lakitu Skip is the first trick runners must perform when doing a run in any category. On the castle moat bridge, Mario can land on the very edge and clear it without triggering Lakitu's dialogue.
- Lakitu Skip can be performed on either side of the bridge, but it is faster to do so on the left side.
- Select a setup that works best for you and stick to it in runs; the trick will become easier as your control over Mario improves.
- If you are new to the game, it is advised not to reset over missing Lakitu Skip; the ~8 seconds you save from it will not make or break your run until you get to a higher level.
