reply: "where the character swings their arms back and forth while throwing their body slightly up in the air with a little momentum" You mean "skipping"? Which is what you described? reply: Yeah, I guess skipping is a better word. reply: How about Stride Of Innocence? reply: Twyla does this in Hogfather.

Skipping is exactly what is described here, a mix between running/walking, with hop-like impulsion. reply: How about "Gait of Innocence?" reply: I think Skip of Innocence is closer to what this is. reply: I like Skip of Innocence as well. reply: Any more examples? reply: Film Order of the Phoenix = Harry Potter 5.

- The Smurfette often does this when she joyfully has a walk in the forest, in various albums of the series.
- Gwen in presearing of Guild Wars
