Sonic using Sonic Wind on Shadow.
|Statistics and overview|
A powerful blue wind that wraps up and damages the opponent.
When performing Sonic Wind, Sonic raises his right fist and calls out the move's name. He will then create a small cyclone made of sharp, sky blue winds, which will wrap around and ensnare his opponent. In gameplay, Sonic Wind wraps around the opponent wherever they might and when it hits, it both causes damage and impedes the opponent's movements.
Sonic Wind is first performed by Sonic during the final boss battle against him in the Dark story. Here, Sonic will perform this technique if Shadow trails too far behind on the runway. The attack can be evaded by running forward.
Sonic Wind can only be performed by the player by playing as Sonic in the games' two-player mode. To use it, the player must press // on the ground after collecting 40 Rings. To use it again, the player has to collect another 40 Rings. Falling into a Bottomless pit without gaining rings afterward, gifts the player a free Sonic Wind. Gathering every twenty Rings when Sonic is in his special suit, gives him a Sonic Wind. By In two-player mode, Sonic Wind is nearly impossible to avoid, unless the other player is Metal Sonic, who can use Black Shield to block it.
