The Diving Bodypress is one of the Aerial Attack Skills used by Sonic the Werehog in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed. When using this move, Sonic spreads out his limbs and falls straight down on foe(s).
When performing this move, Sonic jumps high into the air where he spreads out his arms, claws and legs. He then dives straight down, front first, and slams into the ground in a body slam-like fashion.
The Diving Bodypress is available from the start of the game. To perform the Diving Bodypress in gameplay, the player must press / while Sonic is send into mid-air by one of his other Skills, such as the Sho-Hog-Ken or Sho-Claw-Ken. In gameplay, the last part of the Diving Bodypress will knock back enemies close to the impact, leaving them open to more effective attacks.
