Transforms Badniks into Gold Rings
— In-game description, Sonic Jump Fever
When using Ring Time in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, Sonic is surrounded by an atom-like "shield" that lasts for fifteen seconds. Any enemies that gets near Sonic during this time will then be turned into Rings. This Skill can be used up to five times during an Act, which is indicated by the number of Ring Time icons (depicting a Moto Bug and a Ring) underneath the screen's Ring counter. To activate Ring Time in gameplay, the player must press /. However, this Skill cannot be used in the Challenge Acts.
To unlock Ring Time, the player can buy it at the Skill Shop for 3500 points after clearing the Ring Time Challenge. It can only be equipped to Classic Sonic and costs 60 Skill Points to be equipped. The music that plays when using Ring Time is the Special Stage theme from Knuckles' Chaotix.
