Metal Sonic can copy the Signature Move of any Rival who challenges him.

— Loading screen, Sonic Rivals 2

The Copycat is Metal Sonic's Signature Move in Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2. When using this technique, Metal Sonic copies his opponent's Signature Move and uses it as his own.


When performing Copycat, Metal Sonic scans the opponent, making several robotic noises, and then performs the opponent's Signature Move depending on the opponent Metal Sonic is facing:

In the event that Metal Sonic is facing another Metal Sonic or is on a solo mission, Sonic Boom will be used as a default move. Metal Sonic 3.0 can also use Copycat, as seen in Chaotic Inferno Zone.
