Lakitu won't be happy about this
As if we needed more evidence of the complexities that run beneath many of our favorite games, a code digger by the name of Masterjun3 has unearthed a glitch in Super Mario World that provides the player a Lakitu cloud in the game's item box.
The stunt is executable in the Yoshi's Island 2 stage with just a Yoshi, a fireball, a coin, good button reflexes, the forced appearance of a Chargin' Chuck, and timing impeccable enough not to get Mario killed or crash the game entirely. It's a tad complicated to pull off, as you might have suspected, but YouTuber A+Start lays the glitch out in full detail in the video below:
Since the glitch is repeatable within original copies of Super Mario World, it is considered a freely usable technique for speedrunners. According to A+Start, having the cloud in the final battle with Bowser skips some his animations, saving a precious lot of time, and it won't be surprising if additional tricks are discovered as runners continue exploring.
Findings such as the cloud glitch take a crazy amount of time and dedication, but the results can be amazing. Do you plan on trying to glitch a ride?
