This article is about the move that slows one descend through mid-air. Not to be confused with
Hover ( is a move used by ホバーリング Hobāringu , lit. Hovering) ? E-102 Gamma, Miles "Tails" Prower, Dr. Eggman, and E-123 Omega. The move allows the user to hover above the ground while slowly descending.
Hover was first used by Gamma in
after the Sonic Adventure Jet Booster is equipped. With it, the player can hover by pressing and holding the jump button whilst in the air. The move was then used by Tails and Dr. Eggman in after the player has equipped the Sonic Adventure 2 Booster and the Jet Engine respectively. It was later used by Omega in which functions in a similar manner, though using boosters built into his back, rather than a separate Jet Booster, unlike other iterations of the ability, Omega is able to use the move without first finding an upgrade.
Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
When performing the move, the character uses Jet Boosters to slow their descent. The move can be used to traverse large gaps and bottomless pits. The move can used multiple times as long the player is in the air, allowing the player to help regulate descent if needed.
The Burst Hover is a move exclusive to
Blaze the Cat in and Sonic Rush . The move performs the same way as the Hover does; however, the player must hold Sonic Rush Adventure instead. Another way the Burst Hover differs from the standard Hover is that the Burst Hover can only be used for a set period of time each time the player is in the air; the player can only use the Burst Hover for 5 seconds, after which the player will fall helplessly.
In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), the Hover move briefly holds the player in the same position before descent. Players can exploit this by repeatedly pressing the jump button to freely move around the level in the air without descending. This move can be used to break the game and explore new places.
In , all of the Sonic Adventure E-Series robots fought by Gamma (excluding E-105 Zeta) use a different version of Hover, in which they briefly fly as opposed to hovering.
In , when Sonic Heroes Team Dark perform their Triangle Dive, Omega appears to be using his hover abilities to assist in the Triangle Dive.
