A move where Cream flaps her ears like wings.
Flying   ( is a move that appears in the ファン飛行   Fan hikō , lit. "Fan flight") ? . It is the signature technique of Sonic the Hedgehog series Cream the Rabbit where she uses her ears to become airborne.
When using the Flying maneuver,
Cream flaps her ears as if they were wings in a vertical motion, thus creating a lift that allows her to fly through the air like a bird. While in flight, Cream can reach exceedingly fast speeds, enough to let her keep up with Sonic the Hedgehog.
In gameplay, using the Flying maneuver allows the player to move through the air in any direction with virtually no restrictions. This allows the player to reach higher places that would be otherwise unreachable, or to cross gaps and
bottomless pits. However, there is a limit to how long Cream can stay airborne; after flying non-stop for a while, she will become exhausted and slowly drift downward. The move is also unable to be used underwater. Compared to Tails' Propeller Flying, Cream flies faster but not for as long or high.
