Fire Launcher[1] (ジャンプアタック Janpuatakku?, lit. "Jump Attack") is a Power Formation maneuver used by Team Dark in Sonic Heroes. When using this technique, E-123 Omega grabs his teammates Shadow the Hedgehog and Rouge the Bat and fires them as projectiles.


When using Fire Launcher, Omega jumps into the air where he loads up either Shadow or Rouge while they are in spinball form into his wrist sockets. Omega then shoots his teammate from his arm as a projectile diagonally towards the ground, with such force that the teammate turns into a fireball and creates an explosion upon impact that damage everything in the vicinity. This allows the player to damage enemies, break down doors and destroy obstacles from above.

To perform Fire Launcher in gameplay, Team Dark must be in Power Formation and have at least one other teammate present or the move will fail. The player then has to press the Attack button (PSSquareButton.png/XboxX.png/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO.png) during a jump to fire a teammate. When used near targets, the thrown teammates will automatically home in on them. Additionally, the Fire launcher can be used repeatedly as long as the teammates can return to Omega to be re-launched.
