Bubblegum Descent (風船ガム落下 Fūsen gamu rakka?, lit. "Bubblegum Fall") is a Power Formation maneuver used by Team Chaotix in Sonic Heroes. When performing this move, Espio the Chameleon and Charmy Bee hold onto Vector the Crocodile, who blows a large bubblegum bubble that lets them drift through midair or reach higher areas by utilizing vertical drafts.


When performing the Bubblegum Descent, Vector inflates a massive purple balloon-bubble made of bubblegum while in midair which slows his own descend by catching the air beneath him. Meanwhile, Espio grabs onto the back of Vector's gold chain and Charmy holds onto the foot of Vector's tail, thus riding on him. While descending, Vector gives off a green aura.

While using the Bubblegum Descent, the player is able to greatly slow his/hers descend through midair and as well slowly move in all directions, similar to Glide. Also, in areas with vertical drafts (e.g. fans), the player is able to catch the upward draft generated at these places and ascend to higher sections by using the Bubblegum Descent above the source of these updrafts.

To perform the Bubblegum Descent in gameplay, Team Chaotix has to be in Power Formation with Vector as the leader. The player must then press and hold down the jump button (PSXButton/XboxA/A Button GameCube v2) while jumping or in midair, and can as well use the control stick to move in different directions. To break the Bubblegum Descent, the player has to release the jump button.
