Going for the world record in this game means mastering some difficult clips.
Many clips in 2D and 3D platformers have colorful names describing their difficulty, setup, or special risks involved. For instance, a clip in Super Mario Bros. 3 (5-F2) is known as the “Jesus Clip,” possibly because it involves a leap of faith over a lava gap. A later clip (in Bowser’s Castle) is called the “Everyman Clip” because the setup is made easier by a helpfully placed item block. Other clips are known simply by the level or location they occur in.
