Quotation1 Shadow sends Knuckles flying for a sweeping attack that may distract the entire opposing team. Quotation2
Description, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood[1]

Knuckles Express (ナックルズダイブ Nakkuruzudaibu?, lit. "Knuckles Dive") is a POW move used by Knuckles the Echidna, with the aid of Shadow the Hedgehog, in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Knuckles has Shadow propel him into the opposing enemies as he punches them. This attack damages all enemies present and may leave them distracted.

Description

When performing Knuckles Express, Shadow teleports away while Knuckles moves up in front of the opposing team. Shadow then reappears in front of Knuckles, where he starts to lift Knuckles up into the air through a form of levitation by lifting his arms. After having lifted Knuckles, Shadow sweeps Knuckles through mid-air and into all the opposing enemies on an arc by swinging his arms around in a circular motion, while Knuckles holds out his fists in front of him so that he punches the enemies when he makes contact with them. After the maneuver, Knuckles and Shadow return to their team positions.

In gameplay, Knuckles Express deals attack damage to all enemies present on the opposing side of the battlefield. When it deals damage, Knuckles Express has a chance of inflicting distracted on the target. The higher the level of Knuckles Express is, the more attack damage it will deal and the greater the possibility that it will inflict distracted on an opponent.

Quick time event

When performing Knuckles Express in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to execute Knuckles Express optimally:

  1. The player has to touch the inside of five circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles.
  2. The player has to touch and stay inside the outer circle that appears when it overlaps the inner circle and follow it in a small curve on the upper part of the screen from right to left.

Missing or not touching these circles correctly will either result in Knuckles missing a strike or the damage from the attack being reduced.
