The Jump ability is a special ability in the Super Monkey Ball series. It was first introduced in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz.
Several of the levels in Banana Blitz have platforms that are impossible to reach or avoid without jumping. An example is Stage 3 of Sinking Swamp, where crossing the various platforms wouldn't be possible due to several factors. To allow for levels like this, the player may jump by pressing A. Each character has a different jump ability. AiAi has the average, YanYan, MeeMee, and Baby have the highest, while GonGon and Doctor have the lowest. The jump ability in Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll was omitted.
