Artwork of a Shock Jump Pad from Banjo-Kazooie.

Shock Spring Pads[1][2], also known as Shock Jump Pads[3][4] and formerly Shock Jump Discs, are green pads with an image of Kazooie's foot on them which allow Banjo and Kazooie to use the Shock Jump Spring, sending them high in the air and giving them access to otherwise unreachable places. Simply stand on a pad and hold A Button to perform the Shock Jump Spring.

When the move is used, Banjo first jumps off the pad with a normal-style jump . Once he nears the ground (he is controllable during this first jump), Kazooie lands on the ground, crouches down for about a second, and launches the pair into the air. The jump can be aborted by releasing A Button at any time before it actually happens.

The use of this move is learned in Treasure Trove Cove near the sandcastle. It is required to open Clanker's Cavern.

In Banjo-Tooie, if Kazooie is on her own, she can jump higher with this pad than she would if Banjo was with her. There are some shock pads in the game that are especially needed for this use as using certain pads with Banjo and Kazooie together will not allow the duo to reach the area. It's required for Kazooie alone to use it.

In Grunty's Revenge, there is no short initial hop before the Shock Jump; instead, pressing the jump button on this pad immediately transitions into the Shock Jump.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Shock Jump Pads appear when the duo use the Shock Spring Jump. If used midair, the pad will fall, and can land on opponents to damage them. After use, they will remain on the ground a little bit before disappearing , but can be picked up and thrown in that time.
