Auto Homing is a Power Formation maneuver used by Team Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose and Team Chaotix in Sonic Heroes. When performing this move, the Power type character from each team (Knuckles the Echidna, E-123 Omega, Big the Cat and Vector the Crocodile) approaches nearby enemies while their teammates automatically attack them with Homing Attacks.
When using Auto Homing, the Power type character of the team approaches nearby enemies. The Speed type member and Fly type member on the team then jump up and attack the enemies with the Homing Attack.
To perform the Auto Homing in gameplay, the selected team has to be in Power Formation and must have as least one other teammate present or the technique will fail. All the player has to do is approach the enemies and the other teammates will automatically attack them with the Homing Attack. They will also attack the enemies while the Power type character is in motion.
When the Speed type member attack as a part of Auto Homing, the effects of their Homing Attack will match the level the Speed type member is currently on; if the Speed type member has three blue Power Cores, then the speed type member's Homing Attack uses due to Auto Homing will have the same power and effects of a level 3 Homing Attack as well.
