For this power-up's counterpart in the Sonic Boom continuity, see Magnet (Sonic Boom).

The Magnet is a recurring power-up in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It allows the player to pull in objects.


The Magnet's function is near identical to the Thunder Shield, in that it pulls Rings towards the user. Over time though, it has been expanded to draw in other objects as well, such as Crystals and Animals. However, the Magnet can only stay in effect for a short time after being activated.
