That rail's got a high-voltage current running through it. Don't touch it, it's dangerous.

Shadow the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog[1]

The Electrified Rail[2] is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are a variant of the Grind Rails, empowered by electrical forces.


The Electrified Rails are identical to the typical metallic Grind Rail, except they are colored blue and display electrical discharges.


In Shadow the Hedgehog, the Electrified Rails only appear in Air Fleet. In gameplay, they have the same functionally as regular Grind Rails except they are infused with electricity that prevents the players from using them until they acquire an Air Saucer. They can also be used when the players are using the Hero or Dark Shadow transformation, as both forms grant invulnerability that protects Shadow from any effect. They usually direct the player to places containing weapons.
