'''Instant Release''' refers to techniques in which a held object is released instantly. This allows such objects to appear at the [[HOLP]] without updating it. An example of an '''IR''' is diving into a wall and a Bob-omb on the same [[frame]], causing the Bob-omb to be released before the HOLP can update, as demonstrated in "[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vaJOVyfPaBE SM64 - Stomp on the Thwomp - 6x A Presses]". Instant release can also be caused by big [[Fall Damage|fall damage]], which is much easier to perform in real time.
