The Hyrule Jump refers to the act of crossing the open space from Temple's upper right ledge to its bottom-most platform. It can be performed in both Melee and Brawl. Every character can perform the Hyrule Jump, though it is considerably difficult for characters with short recoveries in Melee, in particular Falco and Roy. Since Temple is banned in the standard tournament ruleset, the Hyrule Jump is never seen in competitive gameplay. However, in single-player-mode matches, the Hyrule Jump may be useful in disorienting CPU opponents because they must travel a long distance to get to the player's new position. Another term for this is "Temple Crossing."

Reverse Hyrule Jump

The Reverse Hyrule Jump is the act of performing the Hyrule Jump in reverse, or jumping from the bottom-most platform to the right-most ledge. In Melee, Jigglypuff, Luigi, Kirby, Mewtwo, and Ness are known to be able to do the Reverse Hyrule Jump. Link, Peach and Young Link are technically able to perform the Reverse Hyrule Jump as well by using their Down B bombs to damage themselves to the point where the bomb's knockback can carry them most of the way to the upper ledge.

In Brawl, Charizard, Fox, Ice Climbers, Jigglypuff, King Dedede, Kirby, Lucas, Luigi, Meta Knight, Pikachu, Pit, R.O.B., Snake, Sonic, Wario, Yoshi, Zero Suit Samus, Ness, and Olimar are known to be able to do the Reverse Hyrule Jump. Link, Peach, and Toon Link are technically able to perform the Reverse Hyrule Jump as well by using their self-damaging bombs as Link, Peach and Young Link can in Melee. Lucario can also perform a very difficult version of the jump by wall-clinging near the top with his ExtremeSpeed. Another way is to use his wall jump on the platform you're standing on then use your mid-jump followed by an ExtremeSpeed at a small upwards angle, but this is one of the hardest reverse jumps to perform. In order to do it with the Ice Climbers, you must mash the Special Move button while performing Squall Hammer to gain maximum height and distance. With Yoshi you must perform the Super Jump, an advanced technique which allows Yoshi to perform two double jumps from the ground.

Peach, Pit, Wario, Jigglypuff, Kirby, Sonic, Meta Knight, Lucas, and Luigi can do the Reverse Hyrule Jump without using their Up Special Moves.

Down Under Jump

The Down Under Jump is another jump that can be attempted on the Temple stage. It is performed by jumping off the left of the bottom-left landmass, underneath the spike protruding from it, coming back up, and grabbing the left edge of the bottom platform. In Brawl, thirty-three characters can perform this jump; Sonic, Charizard, Lucario, Meta Knight, Kirby, R.O.B., Pit, Toon Link, Jigglypuff, Yoshi, Ness, Lucas, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Captain Falcon, Pikachu, Diddy Kong, Marth, Fox, Wolf, Zelda, Sheik, Squirtle, Ice Climbers (although the secondary climber dies), King Dedede, Luigi, Mario, Ike, Mr. Game and Watch and Wario. Additionally, Snake, Link and Peach can perform the Down Under Jump by damaging themselves with their bombs.

The Reverse Down Under Jump is performing this move in the other direction, moving right from the platform to under the spike and grabbing the left edge of the landmass while moving up. Eighteen Brawl characters can perform the Reverse Down Under Jump; Sonic, Lucario, Meta Knight, Kirby, R.O.B., Pit, Luigi, Wario, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Charizard, Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Toon Link. Additionally, Peach, Snake and Link can perform the jump by damaging themselves with a C4 or Bomb, respectively, at high damage percentages.

Other Jumps

A "Full Circle Jump" is a jump that goes all the way around the temple. As of yet, only Meta Knight, Charizard, Wario as Wario-Man, Pit, Falco (by grabbing a koopa shell, throwing it down in the air, jumping on and catching it simultaneously, and repeating - theoretically any Smasher with a short ending lag aerial can do this), and Snake have been shown to be able to do this without landing. Luigi, along with these characters can do a "Half Circle Jump", which is a combination of the Hyrule Jump and the Down Under Jump, going from the far-right edge to the left edge of the "Fight Club".

Jumping over the Shadow Moses Island watch towers can also be done. So far it is proven that Snake, Pit, Wario, Meta Knight and R.O.B. can jump over the watch towers.

A "Final Destination" jump is going under Final Destination. Characters in Brawl that have been proven to be able to do this are Snake, Sonic, Wario (and as Wario-Man), Pit, Luigi, Peach, Marth, Diddy, Yoshi, Charizard, Lucario, Lucas, Ness, Kirby, Meta Knight, Link, Toon Link, Ice Climbers, R.O.B., Zero Suit Samus, Samus, Pikachu, and Jigglypuff.

Jumping under other stages can also be done, such as New Pork City and Corneria.


  • Wario as Wario-Man can also complete any Hyrule Jump, since all of his aerials (except his Dair) make him gain height.
  • A Tiny and light Samus can also do any Hyrule Jump, as her Down Special causes her to gain height and can be repeated indefinitely.
  • A tiny and light R.O.B. can use the same method as Samus with its down aerial because it causes it to gain height and can be done repetitively.
