Buoys[1] are gimmicks in the Sonic the Hedgehog series that first appeared in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed. It is a small floating rover on water that marks the borders of an area of water.

Description

Buoys are small brown balls that float on water surfaces in rows that make up hundreds of them. They only appear in sections of Stages with bottomless waters where the player can skim across the water surface using the Sonic Boost. Their purpose is to mark the paths the player along the open waters to the next section of the Stages so the player does not get lost while running or are unable to find the coast.

Games appearance

In the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed, the Buoys appear in daytime Stages with enormous water area like Dragon Road and Jungle Joyride. In this game, passing outside the path marked by the Buoys will not do anything, but the player will often being at the risk of losing track of their location.
