Air[1] (エア[2] Ea?), also known as the Air Item[3] (エアアイテム[4] Ea Aitemu?), is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It can be found in Item Boxes scattered throughout the race courses. When obtained, it slightly refills the player's Air Tank.


In gameplay, upon obtaining an Air power-up, the playable character's Air Tank is refilled by a set amount.
