A powerful submarine ideal for searching for sunken ruins.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Deep Typhoon[1] (ディープタイフーン号 Dīputaifūn-gō?) is a submarine from Sonic Rush Adventure and the fourth, and final, naval vessel that can be used in the game. It is a heavily armed underwater vessel that can not only handle the pressure from Blaze's world's deepest waters, but also travel the furthest of all the game's watercrafts and can battle underwater enemies. It was constructed and controlled by Miles "Tails" Prower and was used by him, Sonic the Hedgehog, Blaze the Cat and Marine the Raccoon in order to reach Pirates' Island. Just like the Ocean Tornado however, the Deep Typhoon cannot travel in shallow waters.


After Sonic, Blaze, Tails and Marine had gathered enough clues, they were able to locate Captain Whisker and his pirate crew in some ancient ruins. The only problem was that the entrance to these ruins was located at the bottom of the sea, so Tails constructed the Deep Typhoon in order to travel there.


When traveling in the Deep Typhoon, the player has to play a game of Real-Time Interaction, in order to clear out incoming enemies, which is done by tapping on them on the touch screen. Sometimes the player must hold the stylus down and slide it across the screen with the enemy for a time to hit the enemy. The player must touch the enemy as soon as the target markers overlap as touching them too early or too late will result in a failed attack.

The Deep Typhoon possesses a front-mounted laser cannon shooting system that allows the player to shoot enemies, which ranges from underwater pirate vessels, to robotic sharks.
