The Catapult is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a ballistic device used to launch the playable character.

Overview

Sonic flying from the Catapult in the manual for Sonic and the Secret Rings.

When using this gimmick, Sonic the Hedgehog insert himself via Spin Attack-form. With the player holding the Wii Remote in vertical position, Sonic can be thrown across great distances. How far Sonic goes depends on how the player swings the Wii Remote; if the player swings powerfully, Sonic will be launched to the right position and continues onto the level. However, if the player swings poorly, Sonic will either fall into a bottomless pit or not reach the selected destination.
