Medium jump

What it is

A medium jump (or “hyper hop”, “mid-jump”, etc.) is a kind of jump characteristic of the King of Fighters series. It is a mix between the small jump and the big jump.


It is performed by inputting a downward direction (1, 2, or 3) for an instant, then quickly inputting the desired jump direction (7, 8, or 9), also for an instant only. In KOF, you may also tap the jump direction during a dash.

The medium jump is an extremely fast, sharp jump, useful for quickly approaching the opponent.
