1 byte
The ³ command raises an input to the third power. It has exactly the same function as "^3", but is one byte smaller. If used on a list, it will return a list with all of the elements cubed. If used on a matrix, it will return the third matrix power of the input matrix.
2³ 8 {1,‾2,3}³ {1 ‾8 27} [[2,‾1][‾3,0]]³ [[20 ‾7] [‾21 6]]
Advanced Uses
One trick with ³ is to use it to save space (at the cost of speed) when using hard-coded values. For instance, use 5³ instead of 125 to save one byte.
Optimization
Use this command instead of ^3 in all instances.
:X^3 can be :X³
