Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Thank you dead Mario!

As small Mario, get behind Bowser and let him walk towards you. Jump, and try to land on the axe and Bowser at the same time. Bowser will hit the lava, as usual, but Mario will "die" and fall off screen. The Mushroom Retainer thanks him anyway, and you'll move on to the next level without losing a life. Note: This works in 8-4 also.
