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.

Description

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 however, 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 moving around faster. However, this move is purely for increasing movement speed and cannot be used offensively, nor does it allow the player to pass through attacks unharmed, unlike the Super Sonic Boost.

The Turbo Boost 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 playable character's main attack while using this move, giving them extensive maneuverability while charging their attacks, although Silver cannot use it while using his Shield of Light.

In the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed, the Turbo Dash is only usable by Super Sonic during the battle with Perfect Dark Gaia, and is more akin to a midair version of the Quick Step.
