The Jump Stand[1] (ハシラ Hashira?)[2] is a recurring object in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a type of block used in the Special Stages and Bonus Stages.

Description

The Jump Stands are red and white colored circular blocks that appear exclusively in the Special Stages and Bonus Stages. They are fairly standard blocks, similar to the square cubes in the Special Stage. They do nothing when touching them, but they provide a safe surface for the player to land on or jump off.
