Jumping eyes are a type of static enemy encountered in Rayman 2: The Great Escape. Jumping eyes do not move or attack; they simply stay in one place, jumping up and down endlessly, making a sound like that that of a bounding ball. They hurt Rayman if he touches them. They can be destroyed by one hit from Rayman's magic fist. They seem to have some connection with Jano and the Mini Jano; they resemble their cycloptic eyes, and are usually found in their territory.

Jumping eyes of various sizes, as seen in the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava

They appear in the original version of Rayman 2, but not in the PlayStation version of Rayman 2. In the versions where they do appear, they are encountered only three times: in front of the entrance to the Cave of Bad Dreams; the area inside the Cave of Bad Dreams where Rayman finds a blue Magic Sphere; and in the first part of the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava. Jumping eyes appear as a cameo at the start of Rayman Revolution, only they do not jump and they are put inside Robo-Pirate cages, begging for help and water. They are never seen again.

Jumping eyes are not the only disembodied eyeball enemies to appear in the Rayman series; in the original Rayman game, enemies known as lightning eyes appear.
