The Wind Boost takes the form of a swirling tornado around the user.
In gameplay, the Wind Boost can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Charmy, Tails, Jet, Storm and Witch Rouge. As with all other Items, Metal Sonic can also use the Wind Boost if he uses the Steal Item to steal it from the aforementioned users.
When used, the Wind Boost will increase the speed of the user for a short period of time and surround them with a tornado that steals Rings from opponents that come into contact with the Wind Boost. Also, when a character is upgraded to level 2, 8 and 14, the Wind Boost will last longer.
