The V. Maximum Overdrive Attack is a technique performed by Metal Sonic v3.8 in the Sonic & Mega Man: Worlds Collide comic crossover event of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs, and in the main Sonic the Hedgehog comic series. It is described as Metal Sonic's offensive matrix.


When performing the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack, Metal Sonic charges up a large amount of energy and envelops himself in a yellow energy sphere, before shooting himself forward at incredible speeds with enough force to penetrate metal craters. However, a drawback to the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack is that its cost performance leaves Metal Sonic vulnerable to attacks once it wears off.


Metal Sonic used this technique after he was slammed on the ground by Mega Man via using Sharp Knuckle. Metal Sonic rose up, and used the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack to burst through the Wily Egg into Sonic ran into him which caused Metal Sonic to lose hold of Mega Man. (SU #54)

When Metal Sonic was sent to kill Sally Acorn, he also encountered Amy Rose and Cream the Rabbit. A fight between Metal Sonic and the three girls then ensued. In a brief attempt to kill them, Metal Sonic used the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack. (StH #256)
