E-102's air trap. From its arms, it fires very high intensity light "bullets".

— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Air Blinker (エアブリンカー Eaburinkā?) is a move used primarily by Chaos Gamma in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Chaos Gamma's Air Trap.


From the air, the user materializes a shoulder-mounted gun and fires a bomb that slowly moves in the direction chosen, which explodes shortly afterwards. The gun's firing range can be increased by holding RBUTTONDSSNNdisco.png, where it will emit rapid blinking sounds before reaching max charge.

However, unlike the grounded version, delaying the move via holding down the button will cause the user to hover slowly a small bit before reaching the ground, and the user will suffer a slight bit of recoil that pushes them back when the bomb is fired; the said recoil will have more effect the lower the user's gravity is.

Gamma when performing this move will have the propeller used in Flight Mode in order to remain in the air. For Emerl however, he instead uses the boosters from Boost Jump.

Emerl can randomly obtain this skill after participating in a fight with Gamma, either with or against it.
