When performing Charm Ray, Rouge raises her left hand and twirls around once while calling out the move's name, which invokes some sort of mysterious power. The opposing player's screen will then be covered in a pink tint and a counter counting down from ten will appear. This effect leaves the opponent completely immobilized, making it an ideal way for the user to gain the upper hand in collecting Emerald Shards. Charm Ray lasts for ten seconds, which is indicated by the counter, although the opposing player can reduce the remaining amount of time by rapidly pressing button.
Charm Ray can only be performed in the games' two-player mode when playing as Rouge. To use it, the player must press // on the ground after collecting sixty Rings. To use it again, the player has to collect another sixty Rings. If Rouge wears her alternate suit, she can execute it with just twenty Rings, but only for five seconds.
