The ability to jump without the aid of a physical surface whilst in the air from a previous jump. Technique of Enhanced Jump.

Also Called

  • Mid-Air Jump

Capabilities

The user uses their own inertia to create a vortex around themselves that substitutes a physical body to propel themselves off of.

Some users can jump infinitely, this is made possible due to their leg strength - using the speed of a kick through the air, one can use the air (which, due to the speed of the kick, could not escape properly) as a sort of cushion of the fall, therefore using it to jump another time. Given that the user has enough power in his/her legs, one can jump as many times as possible. A common video game cliche.

Applications

  • Defy gravity for a short period on time.
  • Jump to high place.
  • Jumping large gaps.
  • Reaching hard to reach ledges.

Variations

  • Infinite Jump - The user can jump indefinitely in mid-air without stopping.

Limitations

  • May be limited to only ascending, ie. it must be used before the jump reaches the top of its arc.
  • Once the initial vortex has been created, the user cannot generate enough inertia to make another jump until they reach the ground or another tangible surface.
