Location Spring Ball Room, Maridia
Effect Jump while morphed

Spring Ball allows Samus to jump while being morphed.

Because of its location, this item is generally not collected except for in 100% runs.


If you turn on Spring Ball in the menu while you're rising in Morph Ball, you can jump as soon as you unpause, allowing you to reach places that would otherwise be inaccessible.

WildAnaconda69's Spring Ball Jump tutorial

A double springball jump is possible while underwater without Gravity Suit, if you also have Hi-Jump Boots.

There are also a number of room strats that may save time, or might be required by some randomizer logic, such as crossing The Moat with nothing but Morph Ball and Spring Ball.
