• Force exerted when jumping is the weight times the jump magnification.
• Physical strength of a character jumping is reflected in the timing of the jump.
• The landing is the reverse of the take-off.
• Timing of the landing is linked to timing of take-off and the stop/push height ratio.
• Force of impact on landing is reduced by extending the stop height and stop time.
