For the skill, see Dash Attack.

The Dash Attack[1] is a mechanic that appears in Sonic Battle. It is a category of skill-based moves that the playable characters use to determine their first attack while dashing.


Dash Attacks are techniques that determine the attack a playable character can make while using their Dashing Skill. Each individual Dash Attack is performed in its own unique way.

While all Dash Attacks are the same in function, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses that are determined by two attributes: speed and power. Some even have special mechanics; some only land a simple hit upon making contact with an opponent while others can inflict Heavy Attack-styled knockback upon connecting.

To perform a character's Dash Attack in gameplay, the player has to press GameboyB.png while using the character's Dashing Skill.
