A vertical slam that causes a destructive shock-wave.
Stomp ( is a move used by ストンピング Sutonpingu , lit. "Stomping") ? Sonic the Hedgehog that first appeared in . It involves Sonic performing a powerful stomp into the ground to destroy enemies and obstacles.
When performing Stomp, Sonic first goes into midair, whether from jumping or entering midair. He then proceeds to slam directly downwards with one of his feet first, which creates a blue field around him. Once landing on the ground, Sonic releases a destructive shock-wave which damages the nearby surroundings. This is useful for destroying enemies and obstacles, breaking through weak surfaces and activating pressure pads or
Switches. This move can also help Sonic reach the ground quickly.

Xbox 360 version of . Sonic Unleashed
The Stomp first appeared in
. For Sonic to perform the Stomp in the Sonic Unleashed PlayStation 3/ Xbox 360 version of the game, he has to possess the Stomping Shoes (In the Wii/ PlayStation 2 version, Sonic starts out with all of the abilities including Stomp). Here, Sonic can perform the Stomp by pressing / while airborne.
The Stomp is especially effect against
Mole Cannons who can hide underground from most attacks. However Egg Fighter: Shields can block the Stomp once and those equipped with Springs can even deflect it entirely.
The Stomp returned in
as one of Sonic's standard moves. He can perform the Stomp while airborne by pressing Sonic Colors when just using the Wii Remote, the Z button when using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk and the X button when using the GameCube Remote and the Classic Controller. In the DS version, it is performed (while in midair) by holding down on the d-pad and pressing / .
In this game, the Stomp creates bigger shockwaves than in
. As Sonic Unleashed Super Sonic, the Stomp can even destroy all kinds of Containers, except for the Blue Blocks. In Sonic Simulator, the Stomp is also useful for taking out shielded Egg Pawn with just one hit.

The Stomp reappeared again in
as one of Modern Sonic's standard moves with the same controls as in Sonic Generations Sonic Unleashed. In the console/ PC version of the game, the shockwaves it produces are virtually non-existent. However, if Sonic is equipped with the Power Stomp Skill, the range of the shockwaves from the Stomp are increased, thus allowing Sonic to damage more enemies in the vicinity. In the Nintendo 3DS version, Sonic has to obtain the Stomping Shoes before he can use the Stomp.
In the PC/Console version, the main gimmick for the Stomp is the rising magma footholds in
Crisis City, which the player can stomp on to make them temporarily descend to traverse the Acts.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U
The Stomp appears as one of Sonic's custom moves for the
Homing Attack in . When Sonic activates the attack, he jumps into the air and slams straight down with a Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U Spin Attack, meteor smashing the opponents.
In Sonic Generations for the Nintendo 3DS, Tails created the Stomping Shoes. He also mentions that the reason Sonic can stomp with them is because they are lighter than his normal shoes.
In Sonic Colors, the Blue Wisp allows Sonic to do a different version of what appears to be the Stomp. When he lands on the ground, nearby enemies will be destroyed.
In Sonic Colors, Sonic uses a different animation for the Stomp (where a blue light engulfs Sonic) than in Sonic Unleashed.
In , Sonic's D-Air move resembles the Stomp, but it is slower, goes diagonally, stalls before falling, has no field surrounding the landing, and sometimes does not fully activate if Sonic is too high.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Sonic's Stomp color is blue in Sonic Colors, but in Sonic Generations his Stomp color is gold.
