Shadow using Speed Up against Sonic.

In Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Speed Up is one of Sonic the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog and Amy Rose's special attacks. When performing Speed Up, the user emits blue sparkles and becomes able to run at speed exceeding their regular top speed. In gameplay, Speed Up increases the running speed of the playable character for ten seconds, similar to High-speed Shoes.

Speed Up can only be performed in the games' two-player mode. To use it, the player must press DreamcastB/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/Gamecube X Button on the ground after collecting a set number of Rings. To use it again, the player has to collect the same number of Rings. For Sonic and Shadow, the player has to collect twenty Rings. For Amy however, the player only has to collect ten Rings.

Modern Sonic - Speed Up

Speed Up's icon.

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, Speed Up appears as an equippable Skill for Sonic. Like in Sonic Adventure 2, it increases Sonic's overall speed, but instead of doing it in small bursts, Speed Up here raises his overall top speed for long as the Skill is equipped.

To unlock Speed Up, the player can buy it at the Skill Shop, where it will be available from the beginning of the game, for three hundred points. It can only be equipped to Modern Sonic and costs twenty Skill Points to be equipped.
