Normal Exit

96 Exit

If flying under the stage is difficult, simply fly high over the stage. This is slightly slower as Mario's speed gets locked later. Be sure not to fly over the goal tape when flying over.

Secret Exit

96 Exit

Flying Under

The early wings and early DSH routes will not have green blocks, making this strat a bit easier.

Flying Over

11 Exit

11 Exit (NMG) and 11 Exit (Orb)

Note that this may be difficult to pull off and it will only save around half a second, so the normal 11 Exit strat above is recommended for beginners.

After throwing the shell, keep holding B and do a quick left-right to slow down and face right before entering cape flight state. The feather won't immediately interact with Mario as it comes out of the block, hence the delay. Use the backup cape to damage boost in Front Door.

11 Exit, No Cape

This is the fastest RTA strat. There are many other strats that lose anywhere from a half second to a quarter second to this strat that could be used instead

Small Only

Paratroopa Strat

This is the easiest and most consistent strat to get this exit small only, and is recommended for most runners.
