- — Hylian Knight
The Jump Thrust is a skill from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. This sword technique is taught to Link by a Hylian Knight in the Mountain Town of Darunia. Link performs the Jump Thrust by thrusting his blade straight upwards during a jump, whilst stabbing an enemy above him, or breaking blocks situated above his head if he has the Handy Glove.
The Jump Thrust does not appear in later installments of the Legend of Zelda series. It does, however, appear in many non-canonical games, namely Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Soulcalibur II. It is primarily used to strike opponents who are falling from the air.
