* Samus in ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}''. Apparently, the ability was taught to her in ''Super Metroid'' by some creatures she found in the caves, but she could use it since the beginning. In ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'' she even keeps this ability when she doesn't have her Power suit.
** In the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' series, the Screw Attack can be used to this effect on special wall surfaces.

* Used liberally in ''Double Action: Boogaloo'' as it's a send up of HeroicBloodshed and GunFu series. You can jump off of walls... and other players. Players need to jump a lot in order to score "style points" and look badass.

* Eshe from ''VideoGame/{{Sundered}}'' has this ability, and she will jump further if the player presses in the direction that she’s jumping. She can also perform ''VideoGame/MegaManX''-style Wall Kicks in certain windy areas.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' is the king of the WallJump. Combined with JumpPhysics, he can do something called a wall kick, in which he reverses course back to a wall after a wall jump, allowing him to rapidly ascend a ''single'' wall by jumping up it. It is quite handy when dealing with bosses with ground-spamming attacks.

* In ''VideoGame/RabiRibi'', the Wall Jump item grants Erina the ability to do up to two wall jumps, with the first upgrade for it granting a third. [[spoiler:Utilizing two hidden techniques, Erina can perform two wall jump without the item. Mastering these techniques is essential for clearing the game without any items.]]

** This ability likely originated in the earlier 2D SuperMarioBros games due to glitchy collision checking. If Mario approaches a wall when his vertical position is just right, he will momentarily land on it, and with quick reflexes, one can jump from it before starting to fall again (due to wall ejection, which is the standard way most 2D games use to compensate for cheap collision checking). They intentionally added it in 3D, and made it much easier.
