The Drop Dash (ドロップダッシュ Doroppu Dasshu?)[1] is a move set to appear in Sonic Mania. When performing this technique, the user makes a quick dash just after landing.

Concept and creation

According to Christian Whitehead, the Drop Dash was designed with new players in mind.[2]


When performing the Drop Dash, the user curls into a ball as they drop down to the ground, upon where they will instantly dash into a Spin Attack in either direction when making contact with the ground.[1]

In gameplay, the Drop Dash is charged in midair when the player holds the jump button when airborne. Doing so will release the Spin Dash once it touches the ground.[2] This allows the player to gain instant speed just after a drop or jump from midair.
