When using Burst Shield, Metal Sonic generates a fiery orange energy field around himself. This field not only protects Metal Sonic from attacks for a few seconds, but it will also incinerate everything else except Metal Sonic that is caught within it.
Metal Sonic used the Burst Shield in a fight against Sally Acorn in order to deflect her from its body. Later on, Metal Sonic used the move to destroy some crystals in the Crystal Desert Zone in order to make a faster getaway from Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower and Bunnie D'Coolette. He used the move again to escape a lava pit in the Burning Ruin Zone.
- It is possible that this move is based off the Ring Spark Field.
