Sonic the Hedgehog


An air current that damages surrounding enemies

Tornado (トルネード Torunēdo?) is a move used by Sonic the Hedgehog in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), where he creates a tornado to attack his surroundings. It appears as one of Sonic's Custom Actions and requires the Green Gem to be used.


This move is very similar to the Tornado Jump in Sonic Heroes, except Sonic remains in one spot when using it, and it can inflict damage on the enemies. In order for Sonic to use this move, he has to obtain the Green Gem. It can be selected by the player with the directional pad and can be activated by pressing Xbox-Button-RT/R1ps3.

When performing this move, Sonic begins spinning his legs around in a style similar to breakdancing at high speeds. The air currents created from this forms a miniature tornado that can damage any enemies and breakable objects found within a few meters radius.


  • This move may be a reference to Sonic's interest in breakdance, due to the way it is performed.
  • Shadow the Hedgehog bears a similar technique in the same game, called Spin Kick. However, the execution is different, and it is available the very moment the player unlocks Shadow. Also, it doesn't destroy surrounding objects.
  • This move bares some resemblance to a move performed by Sonic and Sonia in Sonic Underground, as it is executed in a similar manner.
