I have a player and a mob node. When the player stands on the mob, if the mob's pacing logic tells it to turn, the player is launched into the air as they turn. At first, I thought it was due to the player getting caught between collision shapes, but after changing the shape to be one shape, it still happened. When the mob turns, I am inverting the x scale to flip the hitboxes with the mob. Could this cause something to happen if the player is standing on top of the mob that causes it to be launched in the air?

This is the player logic for gravity and a double jump action:

if is_on_floor():
    usedflap = false
    if Input.is_action_just_pressed("jump"):
        velocity.y = -JUMPFORCE
    if usedflap == false and Input.is_action_just_pressed("jump"):
        velocity.y = -JUMPFORCE
        usedflap = true
    velocity.y += GRAVITY

Which kind of node are the player and the mob? Also, the picture doesn't work. You should post it on imgur and link it here.

Both nodes are KinematicBody2D nodes. Also Updated the picture link, thanks

Could you also post all of the code involved with the player's movement?

If you are including collisionShapes used for body collisions (standing on player, standing on floor) that are used by the physics engine in the x.scale flip, that's probably the cause. Try only including hitboxes/hurtboxes in the x.scale flip and not touching the scale of the body box collision shape
