— Description, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood[1]

Battering Ram (キャットパンチ Kyatto Panchi?, lit. "Cat Punch") is a POW move used by Big the Cat in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Big rapidly punches an enemy with his fists. This attack may leave the foe distracted.


When performing Battering Ram, Big walks up in front of his target and stands still for a short moment. He then charges forwards while launching several rapid, scratching-like jabs in front of him, and slams head-on into his opponent, before retreating.

In gameplay, the Battering Ram deals attack damage to a single target with three strikes. When its strikes deal damage, Battering Ram has a chance of inflicting distracted on the target. The higher the level of Battering Ram is, the more attack damage it will deal and the greater the possibility that it will inflict distracted on an opponent.

Real-Time Interaction

When performing Battering Ram in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to execute the Battering Ram optimally. For these actions, the player has to touch the inside of three circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles. Missing or not touching these circles correctly will either result in Big missing a strike or the damage from the attack being reduced.
