Hover[1][2] is a recurring move used by Miles "Tails" Prower in the Sonic Boom video games. When using this ability, Tails uses his signature twin-tails to slow his descend through midair.

Description

When performing Hover, Tails twirls his twin tails around like rotary blades while in mid-jump, thus creating a lift that lets him slowly descend from his fall through the air like a helicopter. In gameplay, this ability enables the player to glide through midair and across wide gaps. On its own, Hover cannot be used to gain altitude. However, by hovering within the air currents from Tails Vents, Tails can ride on the wind, allowing the player move in the direction of the air current, including upward.

Game appearances

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the Hover is one of Tails' character-exclusive moves used to reach areas others cannot. To use Hover in gameplay, the player must press and hold DSB on the Wii U GamePad during a jump. The player can then use the control stick to control the direction of Tails' descend. Releasing DSB makes Tails cease with hovering.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

Tails using Hover in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.

In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the Hover is again a character-exclusive move that Tails uses for exploration. While hovering, the player can launch the Homing Attack or use the Double Jump and still remain in flight. To use Hover in gameplay, the player must press and hold DSB during a jump. While in flight, use Controlpadds to steer Tails' descend. Releasing DSB will cease Hover.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, the Hover is again one of Tails' special moves which is used for exploration exclusive to him. This move is particularly essential when facing the boss of Paleo Tarpits.

Much like in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the player can launch the Homing Attack, utilize Blaster, or use the Double Jump and still remain in flight while hovering. To use Hover in gameplay, the player must press and hold DSB during a jump. While in flight, use Controlpadds to steer Tails' descend. Releasing DSB will cease Hover.
