A set of highly acrobatic movements.
Parkour is a moveset that appears in both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of . Based on the actual Sonic Lost World stunts, Parkour allows Sonic the Hedgehog to perform moves he has never demonstrated before.
Parkour allows the player, who controls
Sonic the Hedgehog, to run, climb, and jump on walls. When using the Spin Dash technique, though, the player cannot use the Parkour moveset.
List of Parkour Moves
The most basic of the Parkour moveset, Wall Climb allows the player to run up almost all walls in
Sonic Lost World. Typically, walls colored black and white cannot be climb on. To use Wall Climb, the player has to run towards the specific wall and start climbing. When the player needs to reach higher, he/she must press / ( Nintendo 3DS version) to use a boost. Be cautioned, though; once used, another boost cannot be used.
This move only occurs during a Wall Climb; when the player is nearby another wall to their left/right, the player can press
/ (Nintendo 3DS version) to jump from wall to wall.
This move occurs only during a Wall Climb; when the player needs to reach to the left/right of the same wall he/she are climbing, the player can use the analog stick and/or
to move left or right, depending on what control the player uses.
The player can typically run perpendicular on walls for a limited time. The player can either jump to a wall during a Wall Climb or wherever or the player can use a treadmill to boost their way into a Wall Run. If the player needs more boost to get through, he/she must press
/ (Nintendo 3DS version) to go faster. There is no limit to how many times the player can boost during a Wall Run.
In real life, parkour, also known as "free-running", is a sport which involved people performing tricks, usually in dangerous situations, (for example, performing a front-flip from one roof to the roof of a lower building, followed by a roll) all to keep one's speed and momentum. Examples can be seen here.
When using the Parkour move to climb walls too much at one part, Sonic is shown to be tired via sweat coming out from him. This is the first time Sonic has appeared to be tired from the game series, excluding when Sonic was in his Werehog form on . The sweat is present only on the Nintendo 3DS version.
