The Space Jump[1][2][3] is a move mainly used by Helpers and Helper characters such as King Dedede, Meta Knight, Bandana Waddle Dee, Gooey, and all other Dream Friends. This teleports any helper to Player 1 if they lag behind and go off-screen, or if it is triggered by the player, as the camera is centered to follow Player 1.

This ability can be activated manually by holding the A Button in Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby Star Allies, the X button in Kirby Super Star Ultra, or the B Button in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Holding down the button locks the teleport in Kirby's location until the button is released. Repeatedly tapping the button causes the Helper to self-destruct. In Kirby Mass Attack, this occurrence happens automatically if any Kirby is too far behind.

  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, an identical phenomenon happens during the Subspace Emissary whenever Player 2 fails to keep up with Player 1, which can also be manually triggered by holding the pause button. Coincidentally, the name for this ability is also referred to as a Space Jump.
