Mario jumping backwards in Melee.

A jump is an action that moves a character from the ground into the air. It is performed by pressing up on the Control Stick/D-Pad, the X or Y buttons with the GameCube, Classic Controller, and the 3DS, or the C button on the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. All characters can also jump a second time in midair, providing they are not attacking, air dodging, helpless, in hitstun, or have used it already.

A few characters can jump more than once in the air:

There is a short delay between the jump button being pressed and the on-screen character actually jumping, during which the onscreen character will enter a crouching portion of their jumping animation. If the control stick or jump button is released during this time, then the character short hops. If the control stick is tilted backwards during this time, the character will jump backwards with a different animation than a regular jump. If the standard attack button is pressed during this time, then the character uses their up smash (but only if the jump was executed with the Control Stick). Because characters can jump while shielding (excluding Yoshi in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, due to his unique shield), this allows usage of up smashes (and up special moves as well) without having to drop the shield. This also makes it difficult for a player using the Wii Remote-only control scheme to perform up tilts. Inputting an aerial on the first frame that a character is airborne will cause the jump to be slightly lower, because gravity applies to the first frame of an aerial but not to the first frame of a jump.

Brawl added a jumping mechanic known as footstools. This allows characters to jump off the heads of other characters. This can be done even when all midair jumps have already been used.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a character will emit a subtle wispy trail if they have no extra jumps available.

Types of jumps[edit]

All characters can perform several different types of jumps. The most basic type is a standing jump, which is a jump without any other inputs. There are also more complicated jumps that involve other inputs. One of these is the walk jump, which involves jumping while walking or dashing. Another one is the backward jump, which involves the player turning around, but jumping before the fighter can. All jumps have 2 performable variants. The first and most common type is the Full hop, which involves the player holding the jump command so the fighter can jump to maximum height. The second type is the Short hop, which involves the player quickly tapping the jump command so the fighter will only perform a slight jump. There are also 2 different methods of performing these jumps. The first way is by pressing the jump button. The second way is to press up on the Control stick/D-pad. This totals to 12 different ways to jump, with all possible combinations of each having different heights.

Jump squat[edit]

A jump squat refers to the length of time between the input of the jump and the moment the character leaves the ground. Each character has a different window of time where they crouch before they jump. Characters with faster jump squats will leave the ground earlier, and can transition between their air and ground games easier; however, depending on the control scheme, the player may find it more technically demanding to perform short hops or up smashes. In Melee, characters with faster jump squats can also perform faster wavedashes, but the window of timing is also reduced, requiring more precise inputs from the player.

Jump squats in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Every character has a 3 frame jumpsquat.

Jump height ranking[edit]

Below are characters ranked by the height of their first jump.

Note that there are two methods to encode jump height, depending on the game.

  • In Smash 64, Melee, and Brawl, the game encodes jump force, or the speed at which the character leaves the ground. The resulting jump height is dependent on the character's gravity.
  • In Smash 4 and Smash Ultimate, the game encodes jump height, and works backwards using gravity to figure out the correct force to use. This allows more natural behaviour to modifications of jump height from equipment or special moves such as Monado Arts.

Super Smash Bros.[edit]

The jump physics of Smash 64 are significantly less understood than later games due to extra complexity in the data. It is currently believed that there are two values involved in a normal jump: a base jump force, and an additional jump force based on how much height is given to the Control Stick. Until this is more elaborated, only the typical maximum jump force is listed here.

The calculation of short hop jump force is currently unknown.
