Wall Jump Surfaces are special walls that Samus can use to ascend, with the abilities of the Screw Attack. They appear in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. They always are in pairs, parallel to each other, to facilitate a continuous Wall Jump. The motion is almost identical to the Wall Jump of 2-D Metroid titles, which can be done off of almost any wall.
The Surfaces have different appearances in both games. In their initial appearance, the panels are a pale yellow colour with various brown spots on them. Their appearance in Corruption is much different, they have an emerald green, marble-like surface that shimmers.

- Renders released by Amanda Rotella show that Wall Jump Surfaces in Corruption went through two design iterations. The first design was closer in appearance to Echoes, being a light beige in color with a pattern of brown sun symbols up and down the Surface, while the second design features a red and black "lava" appearance. See the gallery below for reference.
