Teh energy rope between Sonic and Tails created by the Combination Dash.

In Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, the Combination Dash is a rare Item Box-less power-up that only appears in the Special Stages.

In gameplay, the Combination Dashes appear along the Special Stages' chutes and can be picked up by simply touching them. Upon obtaining one, the Combination Dash will automatically create an energy rope between Sonic and Tails that constantly changes color. Any Rings that touch this rope are automatically picked up and added to the player's Ring count, effectively allowing the player to pick up Rings that slip in-between Sonic and Tails. After ten seconds however, the Combination Dash will wear off and the energy rope will vanish.
