Not to be confused with the moves Super Sonic Power or Boost.

The Super Sonic Boost[1] (スーパーソニックブースト Sūpā Sonikku Būsuto?) is a move in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It a Super State-exclusive Chaos Power where the user surround themselves in a fiery aura and strike the enemy.

Description

When performed, the user surrounds himself in a powerful fiery aura of chaos energy (whose known color can be either blue or yellow) before flying into their target at incredible speed, resulting in a rather devastating impact that can stun creatures as large as Perfect Dark Gaia.

In gameplay, the Super Sonic Boost is used to attack opponents or objects by ramming into them. Performing the Super Sonic Boost also appears to make the user unaffected by attacks in certain situations: as seen in the Sonic Advance series and the Sonic Rush series, the Super Sonic Boost allows the user to pass harmlessly through most attacks without any side effect. In recent games, the Super Sonic Boost can also attract nearby Rings, similar to Boost. Also, when used in regular Stages, the Super Sonic Boost works like a bolstered version of the Boost.

Trivia

  • The apparent drawback of the Super Sonic Boost seems to be that it requires a significant amount of energy to be performed. As seen in Sonic Unleashed (PS2/Wii), the Sonic Riders series, and Sonic Generations, performing the Super Sonic Boost tends to drain Sonic's ring count significantly faster, thereby shortening the time he can maintain his super transformation, however these are only applied on these games.
