The First Attack[1] is a mechanic that appears in Sonic Battle. It is a category of skill-based moves that the playable characters use to determine their first ground-based combo attack.


First Attacks are techniques that determine the first attack a playable character makes when executing a ground-based combo. Each individual First Attack is performed in its own unique way.

While all First Attacks are the same in function, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses that are determined by two attributes: speed and power. Speed determines how fast the First Attack is executed and power determines how much damage it deals.

To perform a character's First Attack in gameplay, the player has to press GameboyB.png while standing on the ground.
