In real life, if you throw yourself at a wall hard enough and spring off quickly enough, you can just about do a Wall Jump, propelling yourself even higher than your original jump. Once, sure. More if you're fit, or a LeParkour expert like JackieChan.

* Strider Hiryu in the ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}'' series. The NES game had problems with this due to sloppy controls, while the arcade version lets Hiryu cling to the wall with a grappling blade. He gets the blade in [[CapcomVsWhatever Marvel vs. Capcom]] too, and even uses it for a ''throw''. Ouch.

VideogameCharacters, however, have the speed, strength and stamina to Wall Jump all day. Give them two walls close enough together and they can wall jump repeatedly to climb up the shaft. Some video game characters would rather WallJump than use the stairs.

Some need only one wall, by steering themselves back onto the wall they jumped off at a higher point, then jumping off again. Some video game characters would rather WallJump than use the stairs.

** ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' have the Triangle Jump, where Sonic, Shadow, and Espio have the ability to cling to a wall and use that to jump forward from wall to wall. Espoo can cling to the wall indefinitely, while Sonic and Shadow fall down if they don't jump within a few seconds.

* In ''VideoGame/{{La-Mulana}}'', after collecting a certain item, Lemeza can cling onto walls and kick off of them to reach platforms below him that he normally cannot reach. However, he doesn't gain height with wall jumps; wall jumping simply increases his horizontal speed when he falls off the wall.

* ''VideoGame/{{Ristar}}'', from the makers of ''Sonic'', lets the player grab a wall, slam into it, and bounce at an upward angle. Repeating this, the player can climb walls like X.

Ristar can grab a wall, onto any surface in the game that isn't spiked or otherwise harmful to touch, but he can't hold on unless there are rungs or other handholds; otherwise, he will slam into it, it and bounce at an upward angle. Repeating However, by grabbing a wall over and over again in rapid succession, it is possible to bounce up the wall. Unlike the typical Wall Jump, only one wall is needed for this, the player although it can climb be done with two opposing walls like X.as well. This move is impossible on [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Planet Freon]], presumably because the walls are made of cold, slippery ice that causes Ristar to withdraw his hands in discomfort upon touching it.
