The Axel Jump (アクセルジャンプ Akuseru Janpu?) is one of Blaze the Cat's signature moves. It first appeared in Sonic Rush and later in the sequel Sonic Rush Adventure. It is Blaze's version of the common Spin Jump. When performing this move, Blaze turns into a burning tornado that can attack her opponents.
When using the Axel Jump, Blaze jumps into the air and performs a horizontal spin upon her axis at high speeds into her opponent. During the spin, Blaze ignites fire around her with her pyrokinesis and envelopes herself in the flames, increasing the move's attack power and turning herself into a mini-tornado of fire. Any enemy Blaze makes contact with during this jump takes damage and can sometimes cause her to bounce off them if the the angle is correct. To perform this move in gameplay, the player must press /.
