The Spinning Needle Attack is one of the Special Attack Skills used by Sonic the Werehog in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version of Sonic Unleashed. When using this move, Sonic spins through the air like a piercing torpedo.


When performing this move, Sonic first launches a mid-air dash with his body aligned horizontally. He then puts his arms down the sides of his body and quickly rotates his body, turning himself into a piercing drill moving through mid-air in a torpedo fashion while leaving a cyan spiral-shaped energy trail.

The Spinning Needle Attack is available in the game when Sonic the Werehog's Combat parameter reaches level 12. To perform the Spinning Needle Attack in gameplay, the player must press XboxAXboxY/PSXButtonPSTriangleButton in succession while performing the Dash. In gameplay, the Spinning Needle Attack pushes Sonic forward and knocks down any smaller or medium-sized enemies in its path. The player can control Sonic's direction while using the Spinning Needle Attack.
