Teleport Balls (also referred to as Switch Balls) are objects which appeared in Sonic Heroes.
Switch Balls are found exclusively in Hang Castle and Mystic Mansion and perform one of two functions: In Hang Castle, a Switch will flip the level upside down, and in Mystic Mansion it will teleport the team to other locations in the mansion or make minor changes to a room (including spawning enemies). Switch Balls may appear on their own or in a group up to 3. When touched, they will release a bright light which will permeate from the middle of the screen. Once triggered, the switch becomes inactive and teams cannot return to where they came from using that switch.
