Sonic and Tails using the Rolling Combo
A large Spin Attack composed of two characters
The Rolling Combo is a Tag Action performed by Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. When using the Rolling Combo, Sonic and Tails join together to perform a larger and much stronger Spin Attack. This move is unlocked during Act 3 of Sylvania Castle Zone.
When using the Rolling Combo, Sonic and Tails clap their hands together, and then in a flash of light, they join together in a united formation, similar to that of a yin-yang formation, and perform a rolling Spin Attack along the ground, similar to the Spin Dash. This Tag Action is performed by pressing the X/Square button (Console versions) on the ground, as pressing it in the air will activate flying/submarine mode.
When performing the Rolling Combo, Sonic and Tails move much faster than a regular Spin Dash, though the speed will decrease if the player gets knocked off by walls three times, then the move ends. This move is also powerful enough to destroy any enemy in an instant (even enemies like Snowy, who takes three hits) and large obstacles like pillars.
The Rolling Combo can also be used to dig tunnels as seen in White Park Act 1, as there are some digging sections that can only be passed with the Rolling Combo. While doing the Rolling Combo, the uses are immune to almost every hazard, except electricity and boss attacks.
- Using the Rolling Combo Tag Action, or any other Tag Action, while you are Super Sonic will revert Sonic back to normal.
- Also, this can be used as a tactic in the Metal Sonic race in the Death Egg mk.II Zone. There are pillars that get in the way during the race, and the Rolling Combo is the best technique to destroy them in a single hit.
- There is a team attack from Mario and Luigi: Partners In Time called the "Bros Ball", which is similar to the Rolling Combo. With both moves, two of its participants curl up into a ball and move forward constantly.
