The Step Slider (ステップスライダー) is the first obstacle of SASUKE 26, replacing the Dome Steps from the previous tournament. It is a combination of the Godantobi (with the Rokudantobi spacing and color scheme) and the Bridge Jump. After completing the four steps, the competitor had to jump for a rope attached to a zip-line and let go above the platform, which was slanted like with the Godantobi obstacle in previous tournaments. Sometimes this is also called the "Slider Steps". This obstacle also took down Li En Zhi in SASUKE 27 when his feet skimmed the water. In SASUKE 28, the rope was removed, returning the Godantobi.This obstacle was also used as the first obstacle in Stage One on American Ninja Warrior 4, and eliminated Midwest competitor, Matthew Derouen.
