A wall run is a gravity-defying maneuver in video games that greatly increases the mobility of your average platforming or action character. The maneuver consists of either running straight up a wall to grab the top, or running along the wall parallel to the ground to clear a gap in a walkway that is too large to jump. Most wall run maneuvers are executed immediately after a jump. Some characters can even perform consecutive wall runs, leaping from one wall to another to continue their momentum.
