A Space Jump in progress in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
This article is about automatic teleportation used to keep characters together. For information about the ability to jump while in the air, see Infinity Jump.

Space Jump refers to the ability/phenomenon of a Helper or other character to automatically be transported to Kirby's location via a star or glowing point of light. This happens automatically if the secondary character is left too far behind, or in some games can be intentionally triggered by that character's controlling player pressing the A button (B button in Kirby's Return to Dream Land). Additionally it's possible for a Space Jump to occur if a character rides a Warp Star, this also allows Kirby to perform a Space Jump as it will transport him onto the Warp Star.

This phenomenon occurs in all main-series games that utilize multiplayer in the main game modes, as well as in Kirby Mass Attack, implemented in order to keep the camera - and subsequently the action - centered on Kirby.

In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Gooey's Space Jump will cause him to break any Star Blocks on his path back to Kirby.

In Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn, Angie works very similarly to a Space Jump, and could be considered that game's variation of the technique.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The space jump is also utilized in The Subspace Emissary, functioning exactly the same as it does in the Kirby series, though instead of a star, the transporting effect looks like a more generic blue glow, teleporting Player 2 to the location of Player 1, who remains the center of focus.
