An energy gauge.
Boost Gauge (, also called the ブーストゲージ Būsuto Gēji ) ? Tension Gauge ( テンションゲージ Tenshon Gēji ) ?  or the  Ring Energy Gauge, is a reoccurring game mechanic in the  . It allows the player to charge energy for the Sonic the Hedgehog series Boost and Fire Boost.
The Boost Gauge is presented as an energy gauge of varying design which appears on the heads-up-display in the games. For as long as there is energy remaining in the Boost Gauge, the player can perform the
Boost/ Super Sonic Boost/ Fire Boost. Using these techniques drains the Boost Gauge though, and should it run out, the player can no longer perform them. The means of charging the Boost Gauge vary between games.
series, where the Boost Gauge is dubbed the "Tension Gauge", introduced a specific reoccurring mechanic for the Boost Gauge. When a Boost Gauge with this mechanic is charged to maximum capacity, it gains unlimited energy for a short time, allowing limitless usage of the Boost/Fire Boost during that time.
Sonic Rush series
, the Boost Gauge is referred to as the Sonic Rush Tension Gauge. It also uses the Tension Gauge mechanics, allowing unlimited energy for a brief time when overcharged. In this game, the Tension Gauge is presented as a gauge on the left side of the screen and is made up of several flat segments stabled on top of one another. On top of this gauge is also a small post with a yellow star icon inside.
The Tension Gauge can be charged to a maximum of 300%.
The gauge's color becomes white, blue orange, and then red in accordance to the amount of energy in it (in ascending order). When filled to or above maximum capacity, the Tension Gauge (and the player) will flash and its star icon will spin while sparkling for a short time, gradually slowing down to a stop.
The Tension Gauge is filled at 100% capacity at the beginning of each Act and is used to power both the
Super Boost and Fire Boost. The player can replenish it by performing Trick Actions, defeating enemies, passing Star Posts, or obtaining Tension Bonus or Max Tension Bonus power-ups. Conversely, the Boost Gauge will deplete when the player takes damage, or if the player's opponent obtains a Tension Bonus (Battle Play only).
When the player fills the Tension Gauge at or above maximum capacity, the Tension Gauge enters a temporary, "overcharged" status where the gauge essentially has unlimited energy. The overcharge period ends when the spinning star on the gauge slows down to a complete stop though the player can reset the overcharge period by continually performing any of the aforementioned actions that replenish the Tension Gauge. Once the Super Boost or Fire Boost is active during the overcharge period, the Tension Gauge will decrease to a maximum of 200% (regardless of how long the player used the move for although it will stay at 300% if the move was not used at all during the overcharge period).
Sonic Rush Adventure
, the Boost Gauge is once again referred to as the Sonic Rush Adventure Tension Gauge. Like in  , it uses the Tension Gauge mechanics, allowing unlimited energy for a brief time when overcharged. In this game, the Tension Gauge is a gauge on the left side of the screen that is made up of several arrowhead-shaped segments. On top of it are two gray S-shaped decorations, and above them is a floating yellow star icon.
Mechanics-wise, the Tension Gauge works exactly like in the previous title; it can be charged to a maximum of 300% and the gauge color will change from blue to orange, and then red in accordance to the amount of energy in it. When at maximum capacity, the Boost Gauge's star icon will start to sparkle and spin while its energy bar flashes.
Being used to power both the
Super Boost and Fire Boost, the Tension Gauge starts out at 100% capacity when beginning an Act. The player can replenish it by performing Trick Actions, defeating enemies, passing Checkpoints, or obtaining Tension Bonus or Maximum Tension Bonus power-ups. Conversely, the Boost Gauge will deplete when the player takes damage or if the player's opponent obtains a Max Tension Bonus (Battle mode only).
In the Sea Stages, the
Wave Cyclone has the Boost Gauge, which is used to power the Wave Cyclone's  Boost. This gauge is situated in the upper right corner of the screen, and resembles a horizontal, segmented green bar with a boost icon on the left side and the word "BOOST" written above it. This gauge uses the Tension Gauge mechanic, but it only has to be charged to a maximum of 100% in order to be overcharged. When overcharged, the gauge flashes yellow. At the beginning of a Sea Stage, the Boost Gauge starts out at 30% capacity. However, the player can charge it by performing Ramp Tricks and collecting Rings. Also, the more the player upgrades the Wave Cyclone, the slower the Boost Gauge will be depleted when using the Boost.
The Ring Energy Gauge in the
Xbox 360/ PlayStation 3 version of . Sonic Unleashed
, the Boost Gauge is referred to as the Sonic Unleashed on the Ring Energy Gauge Xbox 360/ PlayStation 3 version  and the  Boost Gauge on the Wii/ PlayStation 2 version.  All versions display the gauge in the lower left corner of the screen. On the Xbox 360/PlayStation version, the Boost Gauge is a dark gauge with a red-yellow bar within it, a  Ring icon and counter on the left, and an overarching multicolored bar for measuring speed. On the Wii/PlayStation 2 version, the Boost Gauge is merely a Ring icon and counter with horizontally-stacked bar units next to it.
The Boost Gauge in the
Wii/ PlayStation 2 version of . Sonic Unleashed
In these games, the player starts the
Stages with no energy in the Boost Gauge. The player can fill the Boost Gauge by collecting Rings, using the Sonic Drift for a given length of time, or by stringing together Action Chains (Wii/PlayStaion 2 version only). Taking any damage depletes the gauge though. On the Wii/PlayStation 2 in particular, using the Sonic Boost costs one unit from the Boost Gauge; it is only when at least one of the bars is completely filled that the Boost can be used.
On the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version, the player can increase
Sonic's Ring Energy parameter to enlarge the gauge permanently up to six times.
On the Wii/PlayStation 2 version, the Boost Gauge can be increased temporarily by one unit for every thirtieth Ring collected (up to a maximum of six units). Conversely, the maximum number of units will decrease by one when the player takes damage (down to a minimum of three units).
The Boost/Wisp Gauge in the
Wii version of Sonic Colors.
, the Boost Gauge is merged with the Sonic Colors Wisp Gauge as the Boost is classified as a Color Power in this game. Nevertheless, it is still referred to as the Boost Gauge.  On the  Wii version, the Boost Gauge is a horizontal blue bar in the lower left corner of the screen with a stylized circulator on the left that displays the Wisp Icon.
Nintendo DS, the Boost Gauge is positioned on the left side of the screen and looks like it did in , but with a blue bar on the left side and the Wisp Icon on top. This Boost Gauge is similar to the Boost Gauge in the Sonic Rush Adventure Sonic Rush series; it capable of being charged to a maximum of 300% and the color of the gauge will change from blue to orange, and then red to indicate the amount of energy in it. However, it lacks the Tension Gauge mechanic.
When beginning an Act on the Wii version, the Boost Gauge will be empty from the start. On the DS version however, it will be filled at 100% capacity when starting an Act. The player can replenish the Boost Gauge by collecting
White Wisps or defeating enemies holding White Wisps.
In the Nintendo DS version, after collecting all
Special Rings, the player is awarded with an option that grants the Boost Gauge unlimited energy. Similarly, in the Wii version, when transforming into Super Sonic, the Boost Gauge will have unlimited energy for as long as Sonic stays transformed.
The Boost Gauge on the
Xbox 360/ PC version.
, the Boost Gauge is back to its original form and singular function. On the upper-left corner of the gauge, it now displays the controller button the player is required to press to Boost. On the console/ Sonic Generations PC version, the Boost Gauge is blue with a green energy bar, a thick left end, and a stylized white and yellow frame. On the Nintendo 3DS, the Boost Gauge is similar to the console/PC version's, except that its shape is mirrored, its color is cyan, and it lacks a frame.
The Boost Gauge on the
Nintendo 3DS version.
The Boost Gauge only appears in Act 2 of all the
Stages as it is only there the Boost is usable. On the Nintendo 3DS version, it possesses the Tension Gauge mechanic, allowing for brief infinite energy when overcharged (which is signified by its energy bar turning from yellow to blue).
The player can replenish the Boost Gauge by collecting
Rings, defeating enemies, breaking obstacles, Drifting and performing Freestyle Tricks. Should the Boost Gauge be full on the console/PC version, performing Freestyle Tricks will charge the Boost Gauge with extra energy, which is showcased by the energy bar extending outside its frame. If the player loses a life in the console/PC version, they will be revived with an empty Boost Gauge, while in the Nintendo 3DS version, they will restart with the same amount of energy they get in the gauge when they enter a stage.
On the console/PC version of the game, there are various
Skills that allows manipulation of the Boost Gauge, including the Auto-Gauge, Endless Boost, Gauge Rebooter, and Boost Gauge Up. Also, when Modern Sonic transforms into Super Sonic, his Boost Gauge will have unlimited energy for as long as Modern Sonic stays transformed.
The Boost Gauge in
. Sonic Forces
, this game mechanic is once again referred to as the Sonic Forces Boost Gauge. In this game, the Boost Gauge is a simple black rectangle with a blue (red when playing as  Shadow and yellow with lightning effects when playing as Super Sonic) energy bar inside it and a few black blocks underneath it on the left side. It also has the word "BOOST" underneath it on its right side.
The Boost Gauge only appears in the Sonic
Stages and Tag Stages as it is only there the Boost is usable. The player can replenish the Boost Gauge in this game by collecting White Wisps or defeating enemies. If the player attempts to Boost while the Boost Gauge is empty, the gauge will shake briefly.
The Wii version of is the only game that does not allow modification of the Boost Gauge.
