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 red lasers cause the playable character to become ⅔ of his original size. This will allow the playable character to run through corridors otherwise too narrow to pass though. The white lasers will cause the playable character to return to their default size.
Sonic the Hedgehog CD
