Sonic using the Homing Smash
A Homing Attack which direction can be fully controlled
The Homing Smash or Homing Smash Attack is a move used by Sonic the Hedgehog. Its first and only appearance was in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as one of Sonic's custom moves. It is a move that allows Sonic to manipulate his Homing Attack's direction. It can only be used after Sonic obtains the White Gem.
To use the Homing Smash, Sonic must first obtain the White Gem upgrade. The player then has to select the White Gem with the directional pad to use this move and use it by pressing (and holding) the Right Trigger/R1 button.
In order to perform this move, Sonic has to be in midair. Using this move will freeze Sonic in his position and he will spin around while surrounded in a multicolored aura. Once in this position, Sonic can chose any direction in which to face in a vertical, 360 degree area. When released from this position, Sonic will perform a Homing Attack in the chosen direction and with increased range and power. In other words, this move allows Sonic to lock on to his target with precision when he is out of the "auto-target area". This move can also cause multiple enemies to be hit. Sonic also does flips after he hits the target of the Homing Smash. When fighting against Sonic in Silver's story, Sonic will use the Homing Smash but without the multicolored aura.
