After completing the four steps, competitors had to jump to grab a rope attached to a zip-line and let go above the platform, which was slanted like the Godantobi. Sometimes, this obstacle was also called the 'Slider Steps'.
American Ninja Warrior
The Step Slider appeared as the first obstacle in Stage One on American Ninja Warrior 4. However, compared to the one used in SASUKE, the obstacle was proven to be an extremely easy obstacle for the competitors, as only 3 competitors failed on this obstacle (including Matthew Derouen). On American Ninja Warrior 5, it was replaced by the Timbers.
From SASUKE Vietnam 3 to SASUKE Vietnam 5, the Step Slider (called locally as Nhảy 4 Bước) appeared as the first obstacle in Stage 1 (1A and 1B), replacing the Godantobi (Nhảy Bước 4) from the previous season. Each step has a white trail that competitors couldn't touch any part of them on. If they did so, they would be disqualified.
On the debut season, using hands in this obstacle will also be counted as disqualified, as shown via Ngô Văn Hùng's run. However, due to this rule was removed on next season, the obstacle was similar to one used on several obstacle such as Godantobi, Rokudantobi, Jūnidantobi, Quad Steps, Quintuple Steps, and Floating Steps.
