Fire hoops[1] are gimmicks and obstacles that appear in Shadow the Hedgehog. A controversial object, it can both grant and take away Rings.


The fire hoops, as their name implies, are giant floating hoops whose rims are set ablaze.


Fire hoops appear only in Circus Park where they can act as both obstacles and beneficial gimmicks. As obstacles, they will harm the player if they touch their rim's flames. However, they can also reward the player with five Rings if the player manages to jump through their hoop without touching the rims.
