The High Jump Boots (ハイジャンプブーツ Hai Janpu Būtsu ), previously simply known as the Hi-Jump are an upgrade exclusive to the 2-D styled Metroid games. As indicated by the name, the Boots allowed Samus Aran to jump much higher. In Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission, the Spring Ball is granted along with the boots.
