The Drift is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a technique used by Sonic the Hedgehog. When performing this move, Sonic makes sharp turns while moving at high speeds.
When performing the Drift, Sonic creates friction to one of his sides while either sliding or spinning at high speed, causing his direction to shift rapidly in a smooth curve without him loosing much of his momentum. The Drift is useful for Sonic when he has to get through tight turns at high speeds. In addition, it can be combined with the Boost to amplify its speed and power.
