Jumper Shoot, originally spelled Jumpershoot, is a Mid-Boss found within Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is very similar to Floaty the Drifter in terms of appearance, with the exception that Jumper Shoot has a foot, unlike the Drifter, and is much larger. Once defeated, it will give out the Parasol ability when swallowed.

The first time Jumpershoot appears is in Big Forest. It has two attacks: one involving spinning like a top in the air and moving toward Kirby; the other having Jumpershoot kick off its sandal as a projectile. The sandal can be inhaled and spat out to fire back at the mid-boss.


Jumpershoot appears in the following levels and stages:

  • Jumper Shoot is based on the kasa-obake; an umbrella spirit from Japanese folklore.
  • Jumper Shoot's name is derived from "bumbershoot", a slang term for an umbrella. This is also the origin of Bumber's name.
