The combo attack is a technique where both Sonic and Knuckles combine their powers. When using it, Sonic and Knuckles grab each other hand and begin spinning around in air until they form a rather large blue and red-colored Spin Attack enveloped in a circular wave of wind/jet stream created by the spin's speed, with each participant using a synchronized Spin Attack inside it. While using this attack, Sonic and Knuckles are turned into a powerful projectile that can pierce through lasers and solid objects which either Sonic or Knuckles can penetrate separately. It also allows limited flight, like a boomerang.
The combo attack was suggested by Sonic to Knuckles in order combine their strengths to intercept the Egg Giant-Makan's death ray before it could be fired. The attack was successful and took the entire ship down. Knuckles later helped Sonic escape the Metarex Deserd's trap by using the combo attack to make a way through the Metarex's defense.
