Description, Tails Adventure Japanese manual[1]

The Jump Combatant (ジャンプ戦闘員 Junpu Sentouin?)[1] is an enemy that appears in Tails Adventure. They are small anthropomorphic avian foot soldiers of the Battle Kukku Empire, who possess impressive agility.


Jump Combatants are humanoid birds about the same size as Tails. They have pointy orange beaks and feet, and a blue plumage. For attire, they wear grey combat helmets with black goggles which cover their heads and grey overalls.

Powers and abilities

The Jump Combatants are really agile soldiers who can make impressively high leap and easily balance on rollings logs in moving rivers.



In Tails Adventure, Jump Combatants are first found in Polly Mountain 1. Usually placed individually, they move around in one spot until the player approaches them, upon where they start jumping in one place. On the third jump though, they will leap towards Tails to damage him. If Tails is not enough close enough, Jump Combatants will keep jumping in one place. Due the uneven terrain, it is extremely difficult to dodge them as the player has to attack first, although any type of Bomb will work on them.

Jump Combatants later appear in Lake Rocky, where they roll logs downstream, getting in the player's way as they move upstream in the Sea Fox. The player has to use the Vulcan Gun to defeat the Jump Combatants here. In both cases, defeating a Jump Combatant can sometimes cause a Ring to be dropped for the player to collect.
