The Dash (ダッシュ,Dasshu?) is a recurring technique used by Charmy Bee. When performing this move, Charmy does a buzzing dash through midair.
When performing the Dash, Charmy positions himself to minimize drag. He then shoots himself through midair, flying forward at a high speed.
In Knuckles' Chaotix, the Dash appeared as an independent move of Charmy Bee's. In gameplay, the Dash allows the player to move forward in any of the eight basic directions, be it along the ground or into midair, effectively granting the player flight. Additionally, this move can be used repeatedly without stopping and any risk of Charmy tiring out, unlike Propeller Flying and Ascending Flight.
To perform the Dash in gameplay, the player must hold in the direction they wish to fly and then press to make Charmy dash.
Sonic Forces: Speed Battle
In Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, Charmy uses the Dash as his Slide manoeuver, which is used to avoid or destroy obstacles. To perform this move, players must swipe downwards on the touchscreen.
