The Power Type symbol from Sonic Heroes.

The Power Type (パワータイプ Pawātaipu?) is an ability type in the Sonic the Hedgehog series and is represented by the color red. It was introduced along with the Speed Type and Fly Type in Sonic Heroes. As its name implies, Power Type characters focus on strength and combat.

Game appearances

Sonic Heroes

The Power Type was introduced in Sonic Heroes. Power Type characters are the main fighting force in the team. Power Type characters can use their attacks to break through doors and push large objects, as well as aerial descent moves such as the Triangle Dive which can be used in combination of fans to reach otherwise inaccessible heights.

In Battle mode and boss battles against other teams, Power Types have an advantage over Speed Types, but are weak against Fly Types.

Sonic Advance 3

SA3 Power Icon

The Power Type returns in Sonic Advance 3. Power Type teams use stronger attacks and can break through special barriers to reach certain areas. The Power type can be gained by any creating any team involving Knuckles with the exception of the Fighting Buddies (Sonic and Knuckles) team (as that is a Speed team).

Power Type teams

  • Tails and Knuckles
  • Knuckles and Amy
  • Knuckles and Cream

Sonic Riders series

InSonic Riders, Power Type characters can smash through certain obstacles and barricades, usually allowing them to reach special shortcuts and earn Air in the process. In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, although Power Type characters (except for Dr. Eggman and SCR-GP) can use any other ability, their exclusive Gears are Boards which had a Gear Part which enabled the ability to smash obstacles to reach special shortcuts. (In the case of the two aforementioned characters, they already have this ability from the start.) In Sonic Free Riders, Power Type characters can race with any ability. Regardless, all Power Type characters have excellent durability stats with average, variable rating among the other stats (acceleration, top speed and curving).

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series

In the Mario & Sonic series, the Power type is one of the four character types, along side the Speed, Skill, and All-around types. Power characters are best suited for events like the hammer throw as well as other strength-based events. Although unplayable, Dry Bowser and E-123 Omega appear as power type rivals.

Sonic Runners

In Sonic Runners, Power Type characters can perform a mid-air forward dash whilst jumping which can destroy the black coloured super Badniks. While all levels in the game can be played with any character, Lava Mountain is better suited for Power Types. Buddies, companions that the player can equip to characters, also have different ability types. paring Power Type characters with Power Type Buddies will enhance the effects of said Buddy.

Trivia

  • The power type has the most members.
  • Knuckles is the only power type character in Sonic Heroes to not be notably larger than the other members of their team.
  • This is the only ability type without a female character in it.
  • Vector is the only power character to be the leader of his team. Also he is the eldest playable character (not including Shadow) in Sonic Heroes.
  • Omega is the only power character in Sonic Heroes to not be the oldest of their team due to being the last of E-100 series (robots are not normally given an age regardless) as Shadow was made around 50 years old (though, technically, he is ageless) and Rouge is 18.
  • The Power Type is the only type to not have any named teams in Sonic Advance 3.
