This move exists primarily or exclusively within the Pre-Super Genesis Wave continuity.

For the version of this move after the Super Genesis Wave, see V. Maximum Overdrive Attack (Archie).

The V. Maximum Overdrive Attack is a technique performed by Metal Sonic v3.8 in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs. It is one of 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. The robot rose up, and used the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack to push Mega Man through the Wily Egg, however, Sonic ran into him which caused the Badnik to lose hold of the blue bomber.[1]
