The Distraction Item[1] is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a type of capsule with power-ups contained inside them.

Description

Looking identical to Item Boxes, Distraction Items resemble blue glass capsules with red caps on the top and bottom of them. They also have a power-up icon on their front.

Overview

Distraction Items made their only appearance in the Nintendo DS version of Sonic Colors. In gameplay, they appear exclusively in Versus mode. Similar to Item Boxes, the player can open a Distraction Item by touching it or targeting it with the Homing Attack to collect its power-up. Once its power-up is collected, its icon will appear at the top right corner of the opponent's screen. Pressing the L button will activate the power-up. Unlike regular power-ups however, these power-ups will produce an effect that is decremental to the opponent in Versus Mode.

The Distraction Items featured in this game are as follows:
