Distracted is a negative status effect and a battle mechanic that appears in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
In gameplay, when a target is inflicted with Distracted, his/hers Attack is reduced, making the target more likely to miss with attacks. Targets inflicted with Distracted are signified by multicolored sparks, resembling miniature fireworks that hover slightly above them.
Distracted can be inflicted on both playable characters and enemies when they are hit by certain attacks, such as POW moves or regular attacks (in the playable characters' case). It can be cured by Prune Juice, Antidote, or Cure All Spray.
