Dashes forward spinning while blasting through enemies.
Burst Dash ( is one of バーストダッシュ Bāsuto Dasshu ) ? Blaze the Cat's signature moves. It first appeared in and later reappeared in Sonic Rush . It is Blaze's version of Sonic Rush Adventure Sonic the Hedgehog's famous Spin Dash and Spin Attack techniques. When used, Blaze charges up fire at her feet to send her off as a fiery tornado at high speed.

The performance of the Burst Dash is strikingly similar to the Spin Dash. When performing the Burst Dash, Blaze crouches down and starts charging fire at her feet using her pyrokinesis to build up speed and momentum. Once charged, Blaze will release the charge and dashes forward at high speed while executing a fire-enveloped top spin, thus turning her into a destructive mini-tornado of fire. This allows Blaze to attack enemies, break through walls or dash up steep slopes without having to build up running momentum. The duration of the Burst Dash is not as long as a Spin Dash though. Unlike the Spin Dash, Blaze is still vulnerable to enemy contact while charging up the move.
To perform Burst Dash in gameplay, the player must hold down the down button on the
Control Pad and pressing / at the same time. The player then has to release the down button launch the Burst Dash. To build up speed for the Burst Dash, the player has to repeatedly press the / before releasing the down button. Alternatively, the player can press the down button on the Control Pad while running to make Blaze twirl along the ground without the need to charging up, though its duration will be shorter.
↑ Both Japanese and North American instruction manuals of
and Sonic Rush consider Sonic Rush Adventure Spin Attack and Spin Dash as the one move despite both of them being required to perform differently. Similar way manuals describe Burst Dash being able to function two ways.
