Explosion[1][2] (エクスプロージョン[3] Ekusupurōjon?) is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. When obtained, it will grant the player a bomb to use against opponents.

Description

The Item Boxes with Explosion are indicated by the icon of a black bomb with an ignited fuse.

In gameplay, when opening an Item Box with Explosion, a bomb forms in front of the player and starts rolling along the track. If the bomb makes contact with the player's opponent(s), they will lose some of their Rings and come to a sudden stop, giving the player the opportunity to catch up to the opponent. After some time, the bomb will explode and any opponent(s) caught in its blast will take damage.

Game appearances

Sonic Riders series

Sonic Riders

Explosion (Sonic Riders)

The Explosion made its first appearance in Sonic Riders. In this game, the player can obtain Explosion at random by touching one of the Item Boxes that lie scattered across the racing courses. When obtaining it, the Explosion's power-up icon appears briefly on-screen.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

Explosion (Sonic Riders (Zero Gravity))

In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the Explosion was expanded upon. Like in Sonic Riders, the Explosion is obtained at random from the Item Boxes that lie scattered across the racing courses. Upon obtaining it, the Explosion's power-up icon appears briefly on the screen.

In Survival Battle, the Explosion functions slightly differently. When the player obtains it, a bomb forms behind the player and a timer counting down from five seconds appear. During this time, the player can transfer the bomb to another opponent using Gravity Control. After the timer expires, the bomb explodes, damaging the holder and any opponent(s) caught in its blast.

In Survival Ball, the ball that is used in the field Megalo Junction functions like the Explosion. As soon as the match starts, the timer starts counting down. After the timer expires, the ball will explode and paralyze any competitor caught in its blast.
