* Comicbook/WonderWoman has this as a power in the Film/DCExtendedUniverse, rather than {{Flight}}. Also, like in the comics, [[Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice Doomsday]] has this power, jumping up to the top of a skyscraper in one leap, and easily being able to catch up to the Batplane in a few superhuman leaps.

* The Goliath in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' can make massive leaps to cover ground quickly through a combination of the physics fuckery innate to the monsters and raw physical power.

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'', the UrExample, had "leaping tall buildings [[TropeNamers in a single bound]]" among his three original powers. In the comics, Supes' original maximum leaping distance was an Eighth of a Mile (660 ft or 201 m (201 m = 220 yd)). It became straight-up {{Flight}} when the Fleischers found it [[RuleOfCool more impressive animated]]. Especially since it was basically treated as flight anyway.

*** In the [[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsActionComics Grant Morrison-written]] ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' relaunch, when Clark first started off as Superman, he had yet to learn how to fly, and is still simply leaping tall buildings in a single bound.

to:

*** ** ''Comicbook/KryptoniteNevermore'': After losing most of his power, Superman has to resort to jump to get around. Fortunately he "can cover dozens of miles with a good, hearty jump" and leap over a mountain.

*** Technically, any character with SuperStrength should have this as a bonus, assuming the surface they launch from doesn't crumble under the sudden downward force. Some super-strong characters do, some don't (or haven't figured out yet that they can).
*** Averted with [[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thing]]. His rock-like body gives him SuperStrength, but also makes him too heavy to be able to use this trope.

to:

*** ** Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} can also do this, although she nearly always sticks to flying.

* In ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', [[spoiler:Khan]] is able to leap from the ravaged bridge of the ''Vengeance'' to the slanted area of the ship's saucer section with barely a scratch. Sulu's absolutely floored by such an ability.

** Played straight with [[SuperpoweredMooks Geth Hoppers]] in the first game, which could leap many times their own height, stick to walls, and [[FrickinLaserBeams shoot laser beams out of their eyes.]] Saren's OneWingedAngel form can do the same.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'' and ''Literature/{{Corpies}}'', this is how [[SuperStrength strongmen]] Supers move around, when they need to get somewhere quickly and collateral damage is not an issue. It takes lots of practice to do this reliably, since, once off the ground, they are, pretty much, incapable of adjusting their trajectory.

* The arowana, a ribbon-shaped freshwater fish that specializes in snatching insects or small birds from overhanging tree branches, can do this ''without legs''.

** The caracal, an African cat roughly the size of a collie dog, is a specialist at leaping up to snatch birds in flight, and can jump 10' into the air from a crouching start.

* And, of course, the inevitable ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' example: Justified for the protagonist, as airbenders are able to leap high and far distances by conjuring gusts of wind and cushions of air. Earthbenders are similarly able to catapult themselves into the air and soften the earth for safe landings.

*** Under the influence of [[MagicMeteor Sozin's comet]], [[spoiler:skilled firebenders can use rocket-feet to ''fly''.]] This was [[FridgeBrilliance alluded to]] as early as "The Southern Air Temple": Aang reasons that the air temples could not have been violated because they're completely inaccessible from the ground...
