Jelly is normally a wobbly, delicious food. But sometimes, characters in fiction can bounce on large moulds of jelly like trampolines.

May well be a common feature in LevelAte settings. See also SpringsSpringsEverywhere, TrampolineTummy, CobwebTrampoline and SpringySpores.

* In ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', Flint takes Sam to a large castle made entirely of jelly, and they have fun bouncing around inside.

* In ''VideoGame/JamesPond 2: Robocod'', one stage is [[LevelAte made entirely of jelly]]. The hero can bounce off the walls and platforms from all directions.
* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction'' has the Gelanator, which allows Ratchet to shoot out cubes made of a gelatinous substance, which he can use to jump much higher than normal.
* ''[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo-Tooie]]'' has this show up in several places in the Cloud Cuckooland level. Generally, the form it takes is a round red jelly.
* ''VideoGame/{{Croc}}'' plays this completely straight, with rather out of place jelly trampolines.
* In the DS version of ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', there are large domes of colorful gelatin in Sweet Mountain that, when landed on, bounce Sonic straight up or, if hit from the side, bounce Sonic in the opposite direction at full speed.
* The levels "Jelly Pipe" and "Torrential Maze" from ''VideoGame/YoshisStory'' feature bouncy jelly in a DownTheDrain setting.
* There were several of those in social game ''VideoGame/PetSociety''. The player's virtual pet could buy them in the shop and jump on them.
* The ground in ''VideoGame/TheFloorIsJelly'' reacts like it's made of jelly, and is appropriately very bouncy.
* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryTropicalFreeze'' has 5-5, Jelly Jamboree. It is set in a [[JungleJapes jungle]] [[HailfirePeaks containing]] a [[EternalEngine factory]] that processes the jungle's tropical fruits into large cubes of delightfully bouncy jelly.
* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' uses slime blocks this way.
* ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'' has portions of lava in Mole Knight's stage that can be temporarily converted into bouncy slime. There are also giant beetles with gelatinous backs that require Shovel Knight to bounce with them to cross hazardous terrain.

* ''WebComic/{{Rusty and Co}}'' has an example in the paladin Madeline using Cube (a D&D Gelatinous Cube) as a long-distance trampoline, with the assistance of a rather long-looking drop in building momentum.

* Jelly World in ''Website/{{Neopets}}'' is this trope exactly--very bouncy and very edible. There's even a game which revolves around bouncing.
* Played with in the [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad Email]] [[ winter pool]], where Strong Bad fills a pool with gelatin and uses it to simulate surfing. When he wipes out and ends up sinking into the gelatin, Pom Pom tries to play lifeguard...and, true to this trope, he bounces off. [[RuleOfFunny Into orbit]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', the episode "Day of the Living Gelatin" had the duo turn an entire swimming pool into one giant gelatin trampoline.
* Subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', where the Eds make a giant pool of gelatin. Ed dives in...and sinks to the bottom.
* This happens often in ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' and other cartoons with mice.
