Lists of Skills in Sonic Generations.

Skills are recurring game mechanics in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are customizable abilities for the playable characters. They can be used to improve the characters' actions and/or abilities in gameplay.

Game appearances

Sonic and the Secret Rings

Skills first appeared in Sonic and the Secret Rings, where they are unlocked by increasing the power of Shahra's Ring. Skills can be obtained by increasing Sonic's Level to a certain number by gaining Experience Points, collecting a specific number of different Medals, or by obtaining a certain Medal from a single mission.

Most Skills featured in this game fall under categories that identifies their attributes and effects, such as Action type, EXP type and so forth. These categories are marked by the Skill Icon next to them. These categories include:

Name Icon Description
Ground Action Skill
Arrow icon
Increases Sonic's speed and ground maneuvering.
Aerial Action Skill
Wing Icon
Improves Sonic's airborne maneuvering, such as when performing attacks.
Hidden Skill
Skull Icon
Improves one of Sonic's abilities at the cost of creating a drawback. Are awarded after unlocking something.
Assist Skill
Pot Icon
Augments Sonic's attributes or another Skill to make a more powerful version of it.
Damage Skill
Shield Icon
Helps protecting or aiding Sonic when taking damage.
Experience Skill
Ring Icon
Usually adds Experience Points to the total for completing a task that normally yields less or no Experience.
Special Skill
Starburst Icon
Exclusive for Crest Skills. Increases the power of the skills of the same element, with an additional effect.

Besides the categories above, most Skills are further classified under three Element Groups, which is signified by the color of the Skill Icons. These categories separate the Skills into more general concepts:

Element Icon Description
Fire Flame Icon Focuses on attack power.
Wind Wind Icon Focuses on speed and maneuverability.
Dark Dark Icon Focuses on miscellaneous abilities.

The Skills advailable at the beginning of the game do not belong to any category or element. The number of Skill Points Sonic starts out with is at a set amount and increases the more his level rises.

Sonic and the Black Knight

In Sonic and the Black Knight, Skills are used by Sonic the Hedgehog and later by Sir Lancelot, Sir Percival and Sir Gawain during the second half of the game.

For Sonic, Skills are unlocked (expect for Soul Surge) by increasing the Proficiency Level of his combat styles (Knight Style, Cavalier Style and Paladin Style). For each level the combat style increases by, one or more new Skills becomes available. Also, if Sonic acquires an upgraded version of an old Skill (which is signified by the sign "+" followed by its rank), the former Skill will be replaced by the upgraded Skill. Some Skills, however, requires that the player has achieved a certain title before it can be used, even after the player has unlocked it.

For Lancelot, Percival and Gawain, the Skills they acquire are determined by the weapon they wield: each equipable weapon in Sonic and the Black Knight has a certain set of Skills tied to them, and by equipping them to a user, they acquire the Skills tied to the weapon.

Unlike in most games, the Skill tied to the specific combat styles and weapons are not customizable. That means that the Skill sets for each combat style and weapon are permanent and cannot be changed.

Sonic Generations

In Sonic Generations, Skills can be unlocked if the player can find all the Red Star Rings in an Act or purchase them from the Skill Shop using points the player has earned after clearing each act. Certain Skills can only be used for Classic Sonic, while there are some only meant for Modern Sonic. There are also some that can be used by both. Both Classic and Modern Sonic are at the start of the game given a hundred Skill Points to distribute. This number of Skill Points will neither increase decrease over the course of the game. These Skills can only be used in Stages, as they do not work during boss battles or Challenge Acts.
