You can gain infinite height in Metro Kingdom by abusing the Hat object. (This object is on a bench east of Pauline after achieving peace. It disappears once you collect moon No.57) You need to jump and immediately throw the Hat with Y, then dive towards the Hat and on the frame you bounce off of the Hat, press Y to pick it up followed by a second Y press to throw the Hat again and repeat the process. The Y press to pick up the Hat when bouncing on it is difficult and only has a window of about 2 frames.
Place a Letter (not the letter "M") at the north-west corner of the letter boundary in Metro Kingdom, make sure the letter's dim/white side is facing to the East. Now place the letter "M" to the east of the letter you first placed. The "M"'s lit-up/red side must be facing North (slightly turned clockwise to the East). Now grab a Scooter and ride it onto the most east side of the letter "M" and dismount the Scooter as you jump onto the "M"'s side. Recapture the "M" and then move the analog to the compasses North slightly to make the "M" move and immediately release all input from the analog. Wait until the Scooter pushed the "M" into the first letter you placed and switch capture from "M" to the other letter. Once you have captured the other letter it should easily move out-of-bounds.

This is useful for Low% as it gets Metro Kingdom Moons: 12, 20 and 60 without capturing the Spark Pylon (Make sure you do this after hitting the Moon Cube). To do this you must set-up a Dog Hover with the Metro Kingdom Dog and Hover for an average of 30minutes. You will be high enough to jump over to the top of Metro City Hall.
Interrupting the Dogs Jump-Animation by bouncing off of the Dog itself will freeze the Dog in mid-air whilst the Dog plays out its Hit-Animation. After this animation ends the Dog will re-do its Jump-Animation at the point it froze in air thus gaining height. You can interrupt this second jump and all consequential jumps to gain infinite height. To do so you must wait a certain amount of time in-between bouncing off of the Dog. A good rhythm is to; - Hold B or A when bouncing on the Dog to do a large bounce - Press Y or X to throw Cappy at the apex of the bounce - Press ZL or ZR to perform a groundpound shortly after This rhythm is seen at the end of the video linked.
Land on the railing north of the manhole whilst riding the scooter. Your angle must be so Mario is facing directly at the wall; bounce once or twice to make the scooter move backward off the railing and as soon as the scooter tilts to a steep angle (Mario facing the sky) hold accelerate. The clip itself is very luck intensive and can take multiple tries. After clipping, immediately jump off the scooter and make your way to the Manhole and loading zone to the Sewer. This skips the Manhole capture for certain Low% categories. Discovered by Mnyush & Syrkl
Hold back on the first backflip and hold right on the last backflip.
