Jump Pads are special devices in World of Final Fantasy that allows transportation along Big Bridge. They appear as red, square panels on the sides of Big Bridge which, when examined, launches the player up and over to walkways above. On the other side are Jump Pads that also launch the player back down to the walkway below. Further up Big Bridge are Jump Pads that can launch the player to the opposite sides.
Another type of Jump Pad, called Vertical Jump Pads, launch the player straight up. These are used for jumping over the glowing blue blockades created by the Mythril Giants blocking the way further up Big Bridge.
In Area 2 of the bonus dungeon EX Dungeon Z, only regular Jump Pads appear.
