Last time I asked about "his ability is to jump". Here I wonder how about " his ability is jumping"? Is this correct too?

His ability is attacking.

Your examples are grammatically correct, but a bit unusual.

Is this like asking a person what his "superpower" is?
His superpower (ability) is jumping.

Thank you.

Then what would be the difference between saying "to jump" and "jumping" in this example?
