Meteor Smash (メテオスマッシュ Meteosumasshu?) is a technique used by Silver the Hedgehog in Sonic Generations, appearing as one of Silver’s attacks during the Modern Era's Rival Battle in Crisis City. It is a gigantic ball of wreckage that serves as Silver's last resort against Sonic.
When performing the Meteor Smash, Silver uses his psychokinetic powers to pick up various debris in Crisis City and mashes them into a giant ball many times his own size. Silver then shouts "Meteor Smash!" and throws the ball at his foes. However, it will fall apart once Silver loses concentration.
In Silver's battle with Sonic, after Sonic has successfully hit Silver five times, Silver teleports behind Sonic, where he forms the Meteor Smash and sends it rolling after Sonic. The ball will roll after Sonic infinitely, so the player must keep running while dodging Silver’s other attacks. After one or two attacks (depending on whether the battle is set to Hard Mode), Sonic can hit Silver with the Homing Attack, sending Silver into the sphere of wreckage and making him lose concentration, thereby causing the sphere to break apart.
- The longer the “meteor” chases Sonic, the more it closes in on him. This can prevent Sonic from defeating Silver, since if the “meteor” gets close enough, jumping for a Homing Attack is fatal, as Sonic will simply jump into the meteor, which will cause an instant death.
- Unlike most other objects levitated by Silver's powers, the Meteor Smash does not display a cyan glow.
- However, when he is picking up the obstacles to form it, they still have a cyan glow.
- Silver's Meteor Smash attack has the same name as a type of attack in the Super Smash Bros. series.
