The Focused Homing Attack[1] is a technique that appears in Sonic Lost World. The Focused Homing Attack can be performed by Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Sonic. The move is essentially a powered-up version of the Homing Attack.


In gameplay, the Focused Homing Attack is capable of locking-on to multiple enemies; up to six at once. The more enemies Sonic takes out with a single Focused Homing Attack, the more Animals will be rescued than just defeating each enemy individually, with the second enemy destroyed releasing two animals, the third releasing three, and so on. This type of Homing Attack can also work on just one foe; if three layers of reticles appear on a certain enemy, the player can release the Focused Homing Attack to deal even more damage and possibly defeat the foe immediately. No bosses, excluding the first fight with Zazz, will be defeated easily with this method, but it is very effective against them.


  • It should be noted that the name of this technique was confirmed from the segment of "Tails' Tips" that appears regularly on the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account.
  • The Light Speed Attack seen in previous games functions similarly to the Focused Homing Attack.
