The Ground Shaker (地面揺らし Jimenyurashi?) is an attack used by Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). When using this move, Knuckles dives into the ground and creates a ripple to attack foes.


When performing Ground Shaker, Knuckles jumps into the air and then dives straight downward with fists first while spinning his entire body around himself rapidly and giving off a flaming red aura. Knuckles then impacts the ground with his fists with such force that he creates a disruptive ripple along the surface to damage the surroundings, before he jumps back on his feet.

When used in gameplay, Ground Shaker can not only damage enemies, but also paralyze them, leaving them immobile. To perform Ground Shaker in gameplay, the player must press PSSquareButton/XboxX during a jump. Once the attack has begun, however, it cannot be interrupted before Knuckles has hit a surface.
