Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Forces

The Boost[1] (ブースト[2] Būsuto?), also known as the Sonic Boost[3][4] (ソニックブースト[5] Sonikku Būsuto?) or Super Boost[6] (スーパーブースト[7] Sūpā Būsuto?), is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a special technique that turns the user into a destructive high-speed projectile. It is also one of Sonic the Hedgehog's signature moves.

Conception[]

The concept of the "Sonic Boost" was first introduced in Sonic Heroes, where any character could repeatedly use a short momentary "Dash" of speed in the Special Stages. It was later implemented into Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush Adventure, where the technique was redeveloped for universal usage and dubbed the "Super Boost." Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) would later develop an exact picture of the mechanism, a technique which subsequently appeared in Sonic and the Secret Rings. In Sonic Unleashed, the technique was finally fleshed out for the home console games, drawing much of its content and dynamic from its Sonic Rush series counterparts.

Description[]

When performing the Boost, the user surrounds themselves in a projectile-shaped energy shield and propels themselves forward at speeds beyond the sound barrier,[3][4][8] thus turning the user into a highly destructive projectile moving at supersonic speeds.[4] The color of the energy field depends on the user: Sonic's is (usually) blue, Shadow's is orange-yellow, Classic Sonic's is light blue, and the Avatar's is white. While using this move, the user is able to barge straight through obstacles at staggering speeds without slowing down.

The execution of the Boost differs slightly between users. Sonic, for example, simply runs along the ground in an aerodynamic pose while enveloped in the Boost's energy field. Shadow, on the other hand, spears ahead while enveloped in his own energy field, hovering above the ground while using his Air Shoes to propel himself forward. Additionally, the Boost can be enhanced further to increase its power through Super States or Energy Cores. The latter empowerment enables the user to fling Meteorite fragments at their opponents with extreme accuracy.

In gameplay, the Boost is a technique that not only allows the player to run at vastly increased speeds for as long as it is active, but also to damage and/or destroy enemies and breakable obstacles by simply running into them during the Boost, all without taking damage or slowing down. In some games, using the Boost can also attract nearby Rings. Also, while the player is unable to activate the Boost in midair (the Air Boost fills out that role), the move will still stay active whenever the playable character jumps or drops down from a ledge during the Boost. Finally, the Boost enables the player to hydroplane over the surface of a body of water, which normal running cannot achieve in the games the Boost appears in; this makes the Boost a virtual move for crossing large pools of water.

While the user is nearly invulnerable while using the Boost in gameplay, they can still take damage from running into indestructible hazards, like spikes or fires, or being crushed. The Boost will similarly get canceled out if the player runs into unbreakable obstacles (like walls) or utilizes certain gimmicks. Accompanying the Boost in gameplay is the Boost Gauge. This game mechanic contains the energy needed to maintain the Boost; as long as there is energy in the Boost Gauge, the Boost can be performed. However, the Boost Gauge depletes whenever the Boost is used, and should it empty completely, the Boost becomes unusable. However, the Boost Gauge can be recharged through various means, depending on the game.

It is also worth noting that, when initiating the Boost in gameplay, it sometimes creates a distortion in space.

Game appearances[]

Sonic Rush series[]

Sonic Rush[]

Burstdash

Sonic using the Super Boost, from Sonic Rush.

The move first appeared in Sonic Rush, where it was given the name Super Boost[6] (スーパーブースト[7] Sūpā Būsuto?). In this game, it is one of Sonic the Hedgehog's actions. When performing the Boost in this game, Sonic gets surrounded by a blue and white, spear-shaped energy field that leaves a colored trail in its wake.

In gameplay, the player can both crouch and roll during the Boost. This is useful when going downhill, as it allows for even greater speeds. The super-high-speeds of the Boost are also necessary to avoid death in several places during Sonic Rush, Also, if the Tension Gauge is charged to maximum capacity, the player will have unlimited usage of the Boost for a short time. To perform the Boost in gameplay, the player must press Snnwiidsxbuttondisco/Snnwiidsybuttondisco while Sonic is standing on the ground and there is energy in the Tension Gauge. The player can hold Snnwiidsxbuttondisco/Snnwiidsybuttondisco to Boost continuously.

Curiously, If Sonic keeps on boosting for too long, he appears to dash ahead and outside of his Super Boost's energy field.

Sonic Rush Adventure[]

In Sonic Rush Adventure, the Boost is again referred to as the Super Boost.[9] In this game, it is once more an action exclusive to Sonic the Hedgehog. The move's appearance is also the same as in Sonic Rush.

In gameplay, the Boost works exactly like it did in Sonic Rush: the player can crouch and roll during a Boost and has unlimited Boost when the Tension Gauge is at maximum capacity. To perform the Boost in gameplay, the player must press Snnwiidsybuttondisco while Sonic is standing on the ground and there is energy in the Tension Gauge. The player can hold Snnwiidsybuttondisco to Boost continuously.

In Sea Stages, the player can also perform the Boost while riding the Wave Cyclone. To perform the Boost in these Stages' gameplay, the player must tap the stylus twice on the Touch Screen or press the L or R Button while there is energy in the Boost Gauge. Hold the stylus/button down in order to maintain the Boost.

Sonic Unleashed[]

Sonic-unleashed-20081008095524256 640w

The Boost, from the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed.

In both the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version and the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed, the move is referred to as the Sonic Boost[3][4] (ソニックブースト[5] Sonikku Būsuto?) and is used exclusively by Sonic the Hedgehog in the daytime Stages. When performing the Boost in the versions of this game, Sonic typically gets surrounded by a comet-shaped blue energy field while he runs. However, in the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of the game, Sonic will sometimes use the Spin Dash while he performs the Boost as well, namely whenever he passes over a Dash Panel in the process. On both versions of the game, the edges of the screen also blur in order to accentuate the effect of the increased speed.

In the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of the game, the player can Boost continuously by holding down the trigger button. In addition, the Boost automatically draws in nearby Rings when in use.

In the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of the game, the Boost's Boost Gauge is divided into subunits, which affect how the Boost is executed. It is only when the player has at least one full unit on the Boost Gauge that they are able to trigger the Boost. Furthermore, using one Boost costs one unit, and the player is unable to use the next Boost until the first one runs out. The player is also unable to perform a continuous Boost. Instead, the Boost runs automatically for a limited time whenever it is triggered. Because of all these differences, the player is forced to use the move more sparingly and strategically. Also, if Sonic crashes into a solid wall while Boosting on this version, he falls over and will take several seconds to get back up.

To use the Boost in gameplay, the player has to use one of the following commands while Sonic is standing on the ground and there is (enough) energy in the Tension Gauge:

Sonic Colors[]

In the Wii version and Nintendo DS version of Sonic Colors, along with in the remaster Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the move is referred to as the Boost.[10][11] This time, it is used by Sonic, as well as the Virtual Hedgehogs (Wii version/Sonic Colors: Ultimate) and Miis (Wii version only). Because the Boost's Boost Gauge is mainly fueled by the sparse White Wisps in these games (as well as the sweetspot Homing Attack in Sonic Colors: Ultimate), which makes the Boost more of a power-up than a move, the player is forced to be more cautious on when and how to use the Boost, which allows the Acts to be designed more around platforming than pure speed.

Sonic-Colours-Wii-ONM-screen-2

Two Virtual Hedgehogs using the Boost, from the Wii version of Sonic Colors.

When performed on the Wii version and in Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the Boost creates a shockwave effect on the screen, although the user releases multicolored waves on both sides when using it. In addition, the user's hands will clench when they Boost. In Sonic Colors: Ultimate however, the player is able to customize the Boost's visual effects. In the Nintendo DS version, the appearance of the Boost is similar to how it appears in its predecessors, Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush Adventure, albeit it flashes in a multi-colored fashion as well. When Boosting underwater however, the color of the Boost returns to the static blue-and-white color palette from the Sonic Rush titles.

In the Wii version of the game and Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the Boost can draw in nearby Rings. The player can also hold down the trigger button for the Boost to use this technique continuously. Also, when Sonic transforms into Super Sonic, the Boost gets replaced with the Super Sonic Boost.

On the Nintendo DS version of the game, the Boost's properties are the same as in the Sonic Rush series. Like on the Wii version, the player can also hold down the move's trigger button to Boost continuously. In addition, if the player collects all the Nintendo DS version's Special Rings, they will unlock the "Infinite Boost" feature. While this feature is activated, Sonic can Boost as much as he wants, even if the Boost Gauge is empty.

To use the Boost in gameplay, the player has to press one of the following buttons while the playable character is standing on the ground and there is energy in the Wisp/Boost Gauge:

Sonic Generations[]

Sonic Generations - Green Hill - Game Shot - (13)

Modern Sonic using the Boost to attack Moto Bugs, from the console/PC version of Sonic Generations.

In the console/PC version and Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations, the move is referred to as the Boost again.[12][13] In this game, it is a maneuver exclusive to Modern Sonic. In the console/PC version of the game, the appearance of the Boost looks like it did in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed, although its energy field has been lowered (in some views). In addition, Sonic's hands will clench when he Boosts. In the Nintendo 3DS version, the Boost's energy field is more arrow-shaped and less smooth.

In the console/PC version of the game, the player can Boost continuously by holding down the move's trigger button. Like in past games, the Boost can also draw in nearby Rings. However, its pull radius for attracting Rings is a lot weaker compared to how it was in Sonic Unleashed. Boosting across water on this version also causes the Boost Gauge to deplete more quickly. In addition, there are certain Skills that let the user manipulate the Boost, like Blast Off, which grants a free Boost under the right circumstances, or Endless Boost, which grants limitless Boosting at the cost of making Modern Sonic vulnerable. Also, when Modern Sonic turns into Super Sonic, his Boost transforms into the Super Sonic Boost.

In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, the Boost can pull in Rings and be used continuously by holding down its trigger button, like in the console/PC version. Unlike its console/PC counterpart however, the Boost can on this version be used indefinitely for a short time whenever the Boost Gauge is overcharged.

Sonic v Shadow Boss ARK Race

Sonic and Shadow using their respective Boosts, from the console/PC version of Sonic Generations.

On the console/PC version of the game, the player can use the Boost indefinitely in White Space. Also during the battle with Shadow on the console/PC version, Sonic and Shadow race against each other using their own versions of the Boost. If the two characters collide with each other whilst Boosting, they will be repelled slightly.

To use the Boost in gameplay, the player has to press XboxX/Square/ButtonIcon-3DS-Y while Modern Sonic is standing on the ground and there is energy in the Boost Gauge.

Sonic Forces[]

Sonic Boost

Sonic using the Sonic Boost, from Sonic Forces.

In Sonic Forces, the move is once again referred to as the Boost[1] (ブースト[2] Būsuto?) Its features are also said to have been reworked in comparison to those in Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Generations.[14] In this game, the Boost is used primarily by Sonic, though Shadow is able to use it as well if the Episode Shadow DLC has been downloaded.

This time around, the Boost's energy field is more wild on the surface, yet thinner and less bright, and it emits a colored trail in the user's wake, like in Sonic Unleashed. When initiated, it also creates a distortion around the user while white streams of air appear around the screen as the user accelerates.

In gameplay, the Boost functions almost the same as it did in previous games. Shadow's version of the Boost also works similarly to Sonic's. However, unlike most previous games, using it does not attract Rings.

When Sonic transforms into Super Sonic in gameplay, his Boost gets replaced with the Super Sonic Boost. The game also introduces two variations of the Boost: the Double Boost and the Triple Boost, both of which are made up of multiple Boost users combining their respective moves. During the final boss battle, it is also shown that Classic Sonic and the Avatar can perform the Boost as well.

To perform the Boost in gameplay, the player must press Switch y/Square/X button/[SHIFT] while the Boost Gauge has some energy remaining and the playable character is standing on the ground. The player can hold the buttons to Boost continuously. If the player attempts to Boost while their Boost Gauge is empty, a small wave of distortion will appear in front of Sonic instead of a white fog like in the previous games. If the player tries to jump while Boosting, they will not use their Spin Jump but rather do a small hop. In addition to that, one cannot Slide while Boosting. Additionally, the player can keep Boosting while being crouched on Grind Rails.

Sonic Frontiers[]

Boost-Open-Zone-Sonic-Frontiers

Sonic begins using the Boost in Ares Island, from Sonic Frontiers

In Sonic Frontiers, the Boost has received some changes. It no longer leaves a colored trail in the user's wake, it does not surround the user with a colored aura, nor it can damage enemies. It still depends on the energy of the Boost Gauge, however, and cannot be used if the gauge is fully depleted. When the player activates it, it first creates distortion around the user, as before, then increases the user's speed. While boosting, the screen becomes blurry, although the player can disable the blur effect from the game settings. This move can be activated by pressing and holding the R2/Xbox RT2-1 while moving Sonic with the Left-Analog-Stick.[15] When the gauge becomes empty, the player has to let go of the button and wait until the gauge refills all of its energy.

In gameplay, the Boost can be chained with other moves such as the Cyloop in order to perform them faster. Performing the Cyloop to make an infinite symbol also helps increase the boost gauge's energy to infinite, allowing the player to use the Boost as move much as they want for a certain period of time. When the player collects the maximum amount of Rings indicated on the HUD, Sonic can perform the Power Boost, an enhanced variant of the regular Boost.[16] A special animation plays showing Sonic gathering his energy in the form of a blue electrical aura around him and his eyes glowing blue, then Sonic gains a blue-colored electrical trail in his wake and his running speed increases considerably while boosting. If the player gets hit and rings are lost, Sonic will revert back to using a normal Boost.[16] If Sonic is underwater, the Boost can allow Sonic to reach his top non-boosting speed instantly to help him get out of the pool of water, though this drains the Boost Gauge a lot faster than it normally would if he was on land, regardless if Sonic can perform the Power Boost, in which any effect related to the Power Boost is disabled until he gets out of the water.

Sonic Dream Team[]

DreamTeamPR10

In Sonic Dream Team, the Boost can be performed by Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, Knuckles the Echidna and Amy Rose, as well as Cream the Rabbit and Rouge the Bat.

Sonic X Shadow Generations[]

Shadow performing the Boost whilst chasing Black Doom

In Sonic X Shadow Generations, the Boost returns as the core gameplay of the newly introduced Shadow Generations campaign. The boost aura returns after being absent in Sonic Frontiers, and shares its look with his last playable appearance featuring the Boost. It also has the same white air-streams accompanying the screen but has received a noticeable change to its trail, bearing a more thicker and wild look (partially similar to that of the Power Boost) as opposed to the thinner and more tamed looking trail emitted in Sonic Forces. With the exception of Sonic Frontiers, the boost retains its previous qualities such as ploughing through enemies too. When the player activates it, it first creates distortion around the user, as before, then increases the user's speed. This move can be activated by pressing and holding the R2/Xbox RT2-1, like in Sonic Frontiers as opposed to the usual Switch y/Square/X button in most boost games prior. Doing this manoeuvre whilst airborne will make Shadow do an air boost.

Other game appearances[]

Sonic Speed Simulator[]

SSSboost

Hologram Metal Sonic using the Boost, from Sonic Speed Simulator.

In Sonic Speed Simulator, the Boost returns as a maneuver used by all playable characters. The move was not initially present in the game, but was added with the 2.0 "Reborn" update. In gameplay, the boost relies on an energy gauge to function, which can be refilled by collecting Rings. Visually, the boost will always appear as the primary color of the selected character. To activate the Boost, the player has to either hold "E" (on PC), hold X button (for Xbox One), or hold the "boost" button (on mobile).

Variants[]

Rocket Boost[]

Main article: Rocket Boost

The Rocket Boost is a unique gimmick that appears in Cyber Space 4-A and 4-C of The Final Horizon in Sonic Frontiers, usable by Sonic the Hedgehog. Unlike the standard Boost, a Rocket Boost can only be activated by touching a glowing green cylinder located in the stages. Upon acquisition, Sonic will enter the Rocket Boost state, marked by the Boost Gauge becoming green and reading "ROCKET BOOST" instead of the regular "BOOST." While performing the Rocket Boost, Sonic is accompanied by a persistent visual distortion in front of him, the light trail behind him transforms into an orange flaming trail, and Sonic constantly emits a high-pitched whistling sound.

While active, the Rocket Boost will propel Sonic forward automatically, only allowing him limited horizontal movement, Quick Step, and jumping. Sonic can barrel through enemies in this state, unlike the Boost in Sonic Frontiers. The Rocket Boost will end when the Boost Gauge empties or Sonic launches off the ground. Sonic can enter Rocket Boost in the air if a cylinder is contantacted in mid-air, but he will only briefly gain maximum speed before immediately returning to normal.

Sonic Boom[]

Main article: Sonic Boom (move)

Books and comics[]

IDW Publishing[]

The Boost technique appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series published by IDW Publishing. It first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog #1, and Sonic uses it in subsequent issues.

Trivia[]

  • In earlier builds of Sonic Unleashed, the boost energy field was originally colored white as it was initially intended to be wind resistance.
  • If the physics of Sonic Generations are hacked to stop the Boost function, the player has to go to a file named "Chaos Energy" and modify "BoostEnableChaosEnergy" file. This implies that the power supply of the Boost may be Chaos Emerald energy.[17]
  • When using Boost in Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Generations, the player will notice a distortion effect, or fisheye effect. This "distortion" is probably used to indicate a sonic boom.
  • In Sonic Unleashed, the Boost can achieve speeds faster than even the Light Speed Dash.
  • It should be noted that when Sonic destroys the robots in the first cutscene of the Sonic Episode of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) there is a blue aura surrounding him which is identical to the Boost.
    • This might infer that the idea of Boost was present in that time, but was not developed yet for gameplay. The Official Game Guide states that using the Mach Speed Custom Action would ruin enemies in Sonic's path except for monsters, suggesting that the ability may have been planned to damage enemies at one point, but was left unimplemented.
  • In the Special Stages of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, both Sonic and Tails can perform a boost similar to the Boost that has similar accelerating and ring magnet properties. However, it does not give them limited invincibility.
  • In Sonic Generations, when boosting in Green Hill and Sky Sanctuary, the music adds fast paced drums and extra guitar.
  • Boost has numerous similarities to Boost Mode.
    • Both have the word "Boost" in their names.
    • Both occur while the player is at high speed.
  • In the Sonic Rush games, the Boost can destroy spikes on grind rails unlike in other games.
