The Jump Panel[1] is a gimmick that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a large metal-plated footing and variant of the regular Spring, which is used to travel between sections.


Jump Panels are rectangular grey plates embedded in the ground, with yellow and black hazard stripes on the edges. They can be single squares or wide panels made of three plates.


Jump Panels only appear in Prison Island. They serve the same purpose as Springs, which is to send the player flying through the air to other locations, allowing the player to reach otherwise unreachable sections or shortcuts. Unlike Springs though, the Jump Panels can launch the player far higher into the air and at much greater speed. When using them, the Jump Panels will expand upward and push the player through midair at incredible speed.

To use the Jump Panel in gameplay, the player has to press the jump button when standing on these panels.
