Isn't this written in kind of an anime/Japanese video game specific way? How is it ironic that "this trope has completely American roots"?

Removed to be hashed out in discussion:

  • Actually, Donkey Kong averts this trope. Jumpman can just barely jump high enough to clear a barrel rolling on its side, and if he falls more than the height of his sprite, he dies.
    • Except that the barrels are nearly as wide as he is tall; Jumpman's standing jump clears his shoulders. Perhaps not as impressive as later examples, but as the earliest of the jumping protagonists, he clearly set the standard.
