The Turbo Boost[1] is a move that first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). It is a simpler version of the Super Sonic Boost where a Super State user performs small midair dashes.


When performing the Turbo Boost, a Super State-user surrounds himself in his aura and makes a short midair dash in one direction at incalculable speeds. Unlike the Super Sonic Boost though, the Turbo Boost does not pack nearly as much power nor does it cover nearly the same amount of distance.

In gameplay, the Turbo Boost allows the player to move in any direction along the screen with short dashes, except for forward and backward. This is useful for avoiding an opponents' attacks or move around faster. However, this move is purely for movements and cannot be used offensively, nor lets it the player pass through attacks unharmed like the Super Sonic Boost.

The Turbo Dash first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) where it is only usable by Super Sonic, Super Shadow and Super Silver during the battle against Solaris. To use it in gameplay, the player must press and hold XboxA/PSXButton or press it intermittently while using the control stick to determine the dash's direction. Additionally, the player can use the character's move while using this move, giving them an efficient maneuverity while charging their attacks, although Silver cannot use it while using his Shield of Light.

Sonic Unleashed

In the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed, the Turbo Dash is only usable to Super Sonic during the battle with Perfect Dark Gaia, and is more akin to a midair version of the Quick Step. To use it in gameplay, the player has to perform the following actions while directing the dash with the control stick:
