Extended Super Slide

ESS Position is the smallest input the game can register that makes Link move. When holding ESS, Link will turn around and shuffle his feet on the spot, unless you started holding ESS while targeting. An interesting and extremely useful effect of ESS Position is that it allows us to maintain speed.

FESS (Forward ESS)

A FESS is the fastest form of ESS Sliding in MM3D. A FESS can easily be performed by holding ESS, taking damage from an explosive (usually bombs) and pressing L right after.

HESS (Hyper ESS)

Due to the changed rolling in MM3D, an ESS with the speed of a HESS is impossible. You can get a backwards ESS, however the speed is actually slower than a FESS.

ESS Bottle Dupe

Using ESS position, it is possible to dupe bottles over items and masks. To ESS Dupe, have a bottled item in your hands (Fish/Bugs are good because you can try again if you fail, water is great if you are near water) and hold ESS position. It is best to target after getting ESS, because then Link will shuffle his feet indefinitely until letting go of ESS. Then, press the bottled item and the item you want to dupe over in very rapid succession. If done correctly, the item should become an empty bottle.


  • Duping over items with quantities (nuts, sticks, bombs, etc) requires you to have 0 of that item.
  • The Gibdos in the Well and the Curiosity Shop Owner will only accept items in real bottles or bottles that were once items without quantity. Any bottle with a "0" will not work.
  • If you dupe over an item or a mask, buying more of that item or recollecting the mask will give it back to you.
  • Catching Hot Spring Water in a Bottle duped over a Mask is used for Bottle Adventure.
  • ESS Duping only works on V1.0. See the page on Version Differences for more info.
