The Focused Homing Attack[1] is a technique that appears in Sonic Lost World. The Focused Homing Attack can be performed by Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Sonic. The move is essentially a powered-up version of the Homing Attack.


The Focused Homing Attack is a variation of the Homing Attack which allows the player to attack up to six enemies at once. However, the Focused Homing Attack can also work on just one foe; if three layers of red targets appear on a certain enemy, the player can release the Focused Homing Attack, and the locked-on foe will be destroyed immediately. No bosses, excluding the first fight with Zazz, will be defeated easily with this method.


  • It should be noted that the name of this technique was confirmed from the segment of "Tails' Tips" that appears regularly on the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account.
  • The Light Speed Attack seen in previous games functions similarly to the Focused Homing Attack.
