Feather Barrage[1] (フェザーショット Fezāshotto?, lit. "Feather Shot") is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a POW move used by the Raptor Hawks, in which they attack with their feathers.


When performing the Feather Barrage, the Raptor Hawks utilize their sharp feathers as bullets. After flying up to their opponents, they release their feathers as rain with a wingbeat, before retreating to their spot.

In gameplay, the Feather Barrage deals attack damage to multiple playable characters using four hits. When dealing damage, the Feather Barrage pierces armor.[1]

Real-Time Interaction

When the Feather Barrage is performed in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to evade the Feather Barrage optimally. If done correctly, the attack will be nullified. For these actions, the player has to touch the inside of four circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles.

Missing or not touching these circles correctly will increase the chances of the attack connecting.
