Cream using the Chao Attack in Sonic Heroes
|Statistics and Overview|
An attack that makes a Chao home into nearby enemies.
The Chao Attack (チャオアタック Chaoatakku?) is the signature move of Cream the Rabbit and Cheese the Chao, and is Cream's primary form of offense. It first appeared in Sonic Advance 2 and it appears in most games Cream and Cheese are playable in. It's a move where the user orders Cheese to attack enemies from afar.
The move is done when the user commands Cheese to attack a nearby enemy. Cheese goes towards the opponent at a moderate speed and destroys the enemy. In Sonic Heroes, Cream uses the Chao Attack as her solo attack when her teammates are elsewhere. In Sonic Advance 3, Cream's Tag Action transforms Cheese into a Chao version of her partner and allows them to use the Chao Attack for a limited time. A similar move can also be performed by Cream and Cheese when partnered with Sonic the Hedgehog is called the Chao Ball Attack, where Cheese is launched forward in a blue aura. While partnered with Amy, Cream can only perform Chao Attack while in mid-air due to her ground attack being using her Piko Piko Hammer.
Cream using the Step Attack
|Statistics and Overview|
Takes a long stride protected by Cheese the Chao.
The Step Attack (ステップアタック Suteppuatakku?) is basically the Chao Attack performed at high speeds. It is a move used only by Cream the Rabbit and Cheese the Chao. It has so far only appeared in Sonic Advance 2.
In order to perform the Step Attack, Cream must perform the Chao Attack while in Boost Mode, which can be reached by running at high speeds for a certain amount of time or using a Dash Panel. The resulting speed from the Boost Mode will then transform the Chao Attack into the Step Attack.
When using the Step Attack, Cream will take a long stride forward, while Cheese circles around her as a shield at high speeds, and as a result will destroy or damage any enemies Cheese makes contact with. Foremost however, the Step Attack allows Cream to maintain the speed she is running at and remain in Boost Mode, unlike the normal Chao Attack which would make her slow down.
Appearances in Other Media
Cream and Cheese, though rarely participating in any fighting, have been seen using this attack in Sonic X. During an Emerald Tournament, Emerl emerged victorious (due to copying skills of other opponents) and received a red Chaos Emerald for his efforts. However, the emerald glitched his systems, causing him to go berserk. Since he could anticipate other's moves, it seemed as though fighting him was pointless, but Cream began to use multi-attacks with Cheese, using Chao Attacks as well. Since Emerl couldn't copy two skills at once, Cream and Cheese managed to restore his former will.
- In Sonic Advance 2 the Chao Attack can be used to collect Special Rings.
