The Drop Dash (ドロップダッシュ,Doroppu Dasshu?) is a move set to appear in Sonic Mania. When performing this technique, the user makes a quick dash just after landing.
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 landing on the ground.
In gameplay, the Drop Dash is charged in midair when the player holds the jump button when airborne. Doing so will release the Spin Attack once it touches the ground. This allows the player to gain instant speed just after a drop or jump from midair.
