This move is similar to the Wall Jump maneuver, except that the user can only move horizontally across the walls. When approaching two walls that are close to one another, the user launches a Homing Attack into the wall to grab onto it. The user can then jump directly horizontally from one wall to another. Depending on the user's skills, the user can either continuously hang onto the wall or even run along it.
The Triangle Jump is primarily used to cross over large gaps or bottomless pits. By performing the Triangle Jump on closely placed adjacent walls above such gabs while moving forward, the player can cross over them. However, it cannot be used on walls that are too far apart, and is as such restricted to exclusive areas created for its usage.
To perform the Triangle Jump in gameplay, the selected team has to be in Speed Formation with the Speed type member as the leader. The player then has to launch the Homing Attack towards the wall to grab onto it and press // to jump between the walls. By moving forward or backwards with the movement controls while jumping, the player can jump forward or backwards between the walls.
Shadow the Hedgehog
The Triangle Jump reappeared later in Shadow the Hedgehog where it was only used by Shadow. In this game, while Shadow can only cling to the wall the player has used Triangle Jump on briefly, he is also able to move around on the wall he has grabbed onto, though only for a short time. The method to performing the Triangle Jump in gameplay in this game is the same as in Sonic Heroes, thought to make Shadow walk on the walls he has jumped onto, the player has to use the movement controls.
