Sonic using Tornado.
|Statistics and Overview|
Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
An air current that damages surrounding enemies
Tornado (トルネード Torunēdo?) is a move used by Sonic the Hedgehog, where he creates a Tornado to attack his surroundings. It has only appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as one of Sonic's custom moves and requires the Green Gem to be used.
This move is very similar to the Tornado Jump, 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 have obtained the upgrade Green Gem. It can be selected by the player with the directional pad and can be activated by pressing Right Trigger/R1 button.
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 several 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 may be inspired by a similar move performed by Sonic and Sonia in Sonic Underground, as it is executed in a similar manner.
