* [[MeaningfulName Springer]] does this in ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'', where it's listed one of his abilities--it's mentioned in his official bio, even. It's a bit strange that they make such a big deal of it when he also has the ability to transform into a ''helicopter'', though.

** Kickback the Insecticon also has this power, though given that he can fly in both insect and robot modes, it's even ''less'' useful than it is for Springer.

* In ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'', during the sequence where he attempts to LeParkour away from henchmen on a ship, he performs an incredibly long jump towards the ship's funnel from atop a mast that even left his pursuers staring in awe, despite winding up getting captured moments later. The jump itself would be impossible for a normal human being to pull off considering the distance and circumstances, though it's partially [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that the creators wanted Tarzan to be able to pull off stunts no actor could replicate in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* The monsters in ''VideoGame/WarOfTheMonsters'' have some impressive reach for {{Kaiju}}s that can easily knock buildings down with little trouble. Though somewhat justified for Preytor and Raptros, as they do propel themselves with their wings in the animation.

* A number of characters in ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' are improbably athletic, but [[TheHero Hibiki]] stands out a bit in that her jumps are mechanically assisted. When she needs to jump higher or further, her [[AdaptiveArmor Symphogear]] can grow a set of boot-mounted pistons that send her flying with much greater force.

*** Technically, any character with SuperStrength should have this as a bonus, due to how hard they could push off the ground.

*** It's also possible to roof-hop through town without any jumping enchantments. Simply max out Acrobatics at level 100 and sail around town in the main character's birthday suit.

* To varying extents in ''Anime/PrettyCure''. ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar'' managed to justify it as a reasonable effect of the girls' powers. ''Anime/YesPrettycure5'' actually established that the Cures on that show, at least, have an upper limit, and need assistance to get any higher.

* Fate of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. As revealed in a dodgeball game in [[AllThereInTheManual the second season's supplementary manga]], her "normal", non-magical jump reaches many times her height and has excellent hang-time. Unfortunately, all of that made her an airborne sitting duck for Suzuka's return throw.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Infamous 2}}'', Cole gains the ability to leap high by boosting off of the tops of cars. [[spoiler:If he gains Kuo's ice powers, he can jump higher still by leaping off of a column of ice created at his feet.]]

* This sort of thing was commonplace in ''Manga/DragonBall'' before they introduced actual flying to the series. A particularly good example is during the 21st (21 stone = 294 lbs) Tenkaichi Budokai where Goku and Namu attack each other while falling from the sky after jumping so high.

** As an example in series, [[spoiler: General Eiling, post-mutation]] is an impressive example, jumping away from a cadmus research center at night... and landing on a parade float in metropolis, during the day, '''on the other side of America.'''
