RTA Guide/Lakitu Skip

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.
Visual cue. Mario must land to left of this line to not trigger Lakitu's dialogue.
