Bunny Hopping is a technique for maintaining momentum when landing on the ground after a jump or dash. The technique is similar to R-Jumping, only performed on the ground instead of in midair.

To perform a bunny hop out of a jump or dash: Begin holding R at any time in midair and try to face 90 degrees from the direction you are moving in. Just before you land on the ground, begin holding L. As soon as you hit the ground, jump, and release L immediately.

Examples of Bunny Hopping include Speed Tricks: Twin Fires Tunnel.
