The Explosion Switch (エクスプロージョン スイッチ[1] Ekusupurōjon suitchi?) is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom series. It is an explosion-inducing device that can be used against enemies.[1]


The Explosion Switch is a square, gray remote with a large red button on it and an antenna with a red tip. By stomping vigorously on it, the Explosion Switch injects powerful Ancient energy into the ground, causing a huge explosion around it.[1]


In gameplay, the Explosion Switch can used to damage Destruction Troops and breakable obstacles. It can be found at fixed points throughout the game or be dropped by destroyed Treasure Minions. When found, it can be picked up by the playable characters. When used, it creates a wide-ranged explosion around itself to damage enemies. The explosion has tremendous destructive power, capable of taking out Brute-class and Elite-class Destruction Troops in one shot, making it one of the strongest weapons in the game.[1] However, it is also very rare.
