Pushes away nearby objects or paralyzes opponents.
The Psycho Smash (サイコスマッシュ,Saikosumasshu?) is one of Silver the Hedgehog's signature techniques. This move utilizes Silver's basic psychokinetic powers to push away objects or stun his enemies. It has only appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).
When using the Psycho Smash, Silver charges up certain amounts of psychokinetic energies in his body. The longer he charges up his psychokinetic energies, the stronger the Psycho Smash will be. Once charged up, Silver releases a strong shockwave of psychokinetic energy with a swing of his arm which can push objects far away.
To perform the Psycho Smash in gameplay, the player has to press/hold down /. If an enemy is caught in the wake of the Psycho Smash, the resulting psychokinetic energy will paralyze the said enemy and make it unable to move, be they either robots or living creatures. This makes it possible for Silver to grab the opponent with his Psychokinesis and use them as projectiles against other enemies, or simply destroy them by grabbing them and then releasing them.
If Silver already has picked up objects with his Psychokinesis, he can use his Psycho Smash to hurl the said objects one-by-one as projectiles at his enemies, thus causing them damage. The distance and force the object are flung at can be increased the more Silver charges up the Psycho Smash before throwing the objects.
Silver first used Psycho Smash in his first cutscene, where he gathered up energy to pillar of lava out of his way when he was investigating Iblis.
