Blaze using the Axel Tornado
A fiery spin that allows Blaze to gain air.
The Axel Tornado (アクセルトルネード Akuserutorunēdo?) is a move used by Blaze the Cat. It first appeared in Sonic Rush and later in the sequel Sonic Rush Adventure. It is the equivalent to Sonic the Hedgehog's Hop Jump. When using the Axel Tornado, Blaze shoots herself higher into the air.
To use the Axel Tornado, Blaze must be sent into midair by either springs, ropes or ramps. Once in midair, Blaze unleashes a large, but brief burst of fire under her feet with her pyrokinesis and twirls, allowing her to launch herself higher into the air, and as well to destroy enemies she would make contact with on her path during her ascend. This is very similar to Sonic's Hop Jump, except that the Axel Tornado can go much higher into the air than the Hop Jump can, since Blaze can put much more force into the updraft with her pyrokinesis.
To perform the Axel Tornado in gameplay, the player must press both the Control Pad Up and the R Button at the same time when send into the air by springs, ropes or ramps.
