Description

The Turbo Star made its first appearance in Sonic Riders. According to its profile, it can quickly achieve top speed with its acceleration. It can be unlocked in the game by first collecting the Turbo Star Repair Manual in Mission 5 for Splash Canyon and the broken Turbo Star Gear by completing Mission 5 at Green Cave with a Gold rank and then collecting forty green junk, two yellow junk, ten red junk and ten blue junk to repair it.

The Turbo Star is designed in Sonic Riders as a typical, but aerodynamic, board, with black edge accents and a white board-enclosed surface with yellow markings.

Abilities and traits

As a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders, the Turbo Star is well-balanced in its attributes with overall average total statistics, an average rate of fuel-consumption and is suited for general riding.

The Turbo Star has no special abilities of its own, but possesses an amazing acceleration stat, reducing setbacks from bumping into obstacles to a minimum. However, its drawback is that it has low top speed and low Air Boost speed.

In Sonic Free Riders, the Turbo Star received a new design. In this game, it returned to having a more board-like shape, much like it had in Sonic Riders, but with inward curves around the midsection. It is primarily colored citrine, with dark gray rims on the edges and has green highlights along the edges.

Abilities and traits

As a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Free Riders, the Turbo Star is, like in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, well-balanced in its attributes and is suited for general riding.

Also, when performing a Kick Dash, the speed it travels at is fairly slow (around 170 Speed) compared to other Extreme Gears. It can be equipped with two Gear Parts.

Trivia

  • The name "Turbo Star" is also the name of a vehicle found in Kirby Air Ride, which is a game Sonic Riders is often compared to.
  • In Sonic Free Riders, for this Gear has the highest acceleration in the game, when starting a race, the rider will approach the starting line quicker than on other Gear so the player has to carefully time the Kick Dash (it's best to wait when the timer reaches around 0.7-0.5 seconds before Kick Dashing) which makes it easy to get an 'Unbelievable Start' but it's very easy to perform a mistimed Kick Dash which can easily result in hit the starting line before the timer reaches zero.
