Jumping eyes are a type of static enemy encountered in Rayman 2. 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 bouncing 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.

They appear in all versions of Rayman 2 but Rayman Revolution. They are encountered only three times: in front of the entrance to the Cave of Bad Dreams in the Marshes of Awakening (absent in the PlayStation version), inside the Cave of Bad Dreams in the area where Rayman finds a blue Magic Sphere, and in the first part of the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava.

In the PC, Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 versions of the game, the texture for jumping eyes is reused to represent the eyes of the prisoners inside Robo-Pirate cages at the beginning of the game, as well as at the end of the Prison Ship in the Dreamcast version.

Jumping eyes also appear in Rayman 2 Forever, the Game Boy Color version of Rayman 2. Here, their eyes are more sinister looking.

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.
