Sonic struck by the beam as it alters his size.
Size Beam is a gimmick that first appears in . They are size-altering machines found on Sonic the Hedgehog CD Little Planet.
The Size Beams are usually fitted in corridors to shoot lasers down towards the ground. If the playable characters are caught in the beam, it will alter their size.

The white lasers will cause the playable character to return to their default size.
