Hit enemies hard with a Focused Homing Attack. Wait for multiple targets to appear on one enemy, then strike!

— Tails' Tip, Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter[1]

The Focused Homing Attack[1] is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is essentially a powered-up version of the Homing Attack technique.


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.
