Ground Jump

The ground jump lets you perform a straight vertical jump, allowing you to grab ledges that you couldn't have grabbed before. It can be done as Link and Zora Link.

How To

There are three different ways to store a ground jump:

Method 1

  1. Take out a bomb and walk back a little, but stay in "Grab" range.
  2. Take out your sword or a stick, and while holding Z and R, press A.
  3. Wait for the bomb to explode.

Method 2

  1. Take out a bomb and walk out of "Grab" range.
  2. Roll towards the bomb while holding Z and R while mashing A.
  3. Wait for the bomb to explode.

Method 3

  1. Take out a bomb and walk back a little, but stay in "Grab" range.
  2. While holding Z, press A, and then immediately hold R.
  3. Wait for the bomb to explode.

After you've stored it, just backflip to ground jump. This video demonstrates all three methods in order:

Is the Ground Jump even useful?

No, it has been obsoleted by the gainer in Majora's Mask. If you're having trouble with a gainer, though, you can almost always ground jump, and many failed superslides ultimately result in a ground jump, so the trick is good to know.
