Wall Jumping isn't an ability that can be done by any character, but about a third of the cast can do one.

Characters marked with a circle can wall jump, while characters marked with a star can cling to walls.

How to Wall Cling | Characters Who Can Wall Cling

Tilt the left stick in the opposite direction after touching a wall

Upon coming into contact with a wall while mid-air, tilt the move stick to the opposite direction of that wall. This will automatically cause your character to jump to the opposite direction. Note that you can only wall jump from a particular wall once until you grab a ledge, land, or wall jump from another wall.

Practice at Saffron City

If you are struggling to wall jump, we recommend going to Saffron City and practicing there. There are two walls right next to each other on the right side of the stage, so you can practice wall jumping back and forth from one wall to the other.

Wall Jump Applications

Helpful for characters with poor recoveries

Some characters, such as Cloud or Little Mac, have notably bad recoveries. Having this extra jump allows them to gain some vertical distance by wall jumping before using their recovery, which gives them a better chance of making it back.

Used as a ledge recovery mixup

For some characters, wall jumps can be used as an extra ledge recovery option, by dropping down from ledge, wall jumping, then using a B reverse (using a special like neutral B and then immediately pressing the control stick in the opposite direction) to land on the stage with an attack. This is good for characters like Young Link (Fire Arrow), Sheik (Needles), among many others who can use it to land on stage with a projectile.

Note that this recovery option should only be used as an occasional mixup however, as it is easy to counter if the opponent expects you to do it.
