The Tarzan Jump (ターザンジャンプ) or Tarzan Rope (ターザンロープ) has been the second to last obstacle in SASUKE's First Stage since SASUKE 3, save for three tournaments. The competitor must grab onto a rope and swing to the next obstacle, either the Rope Climb (SASUKE 3-SASUKE 17) or the Rope Ladder (SASUKE 18-SASUKE 29). For SASUKE 30, however, competitors had to swing onto a floating mat that led to the next obstacle, the Lumberjack Climb. G4, it is not seen an obstacle in its own right, and is considered part of the Rope Climb/Rope Ladder. From SASUKE 10 to SASUKE 12, a different obstacle called the Tarzan Rope directly preceded the Rope Climb. This version, however, only had 10 people failed the tranverse to the Rope Climb obstacle.
The version used in American Ninja Warrior is a direct swing to another platform. Many competitors have swung to the other side only to botch their landing.
