I want that damn leather jacket! Does anyone have any tips outside of 'the timing changes' or 'save state using an emulator' to complete the 100 Super Jump quest?

This guide contains a series of tips for achieving 100 Super Jumps:

  • I recommend practicing your Jumps on Spikey in Mushroom Way. You should not have the JUMP SHOES on when you do this. That way you can do the Jumps repeatedly without causing damage (you can have your other party members block). Or you could practice on the Fink Flower in Bean Valley while boosting your experience points. A "SCROOGE RING" will help cut down on FP usage.

  • Can you imagine tolerating the classic 1-Up sounds that you hear when Mario stomps the enemy for about 95 jumps? That's why it's a good idea to hit the mute button on you remote (or turn down the volume).

  • Doing Super Jumps is such a repetitive task. It can get stressful at times. That's why it is important that you remain relaxed while doing the jumps. The more frustrated you are, the more likely you'll mess up.

  • The most important tip of all? You MUST have the proper mindset. You MUST prepare your mind. Counting to yourself all the way to 100 is very likely to mess you up. What I recommend you should do is divide the number of jumps to 30 jump intervals. So you count to 30 then start over. That way, 100 just looks like 30, 30, 30, and 10. If you happen to get used to this line of thinking think 30, 30, 30, and 30 to improve your chances.

Essentially, practice before trying and concentrate properly during the task.

The timing for the jumps changes as number of jumps increases, though. It's not as simple as being calm and doing the same thing 100 times. –  BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft May 5 at 22:40
