The Forward Power Attack is a Power Formation maneuver used by Team Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose and Team Chaotix in Sonic Heroes. When performing this move, the Power type character from each team (Knuckles the Echidna, E-123 Omega, Big the Cat and Vector the Crocodile) attack enemies directly ahead of them with powerful strikes.
When performing the Forward Power Attack, the Power type character on the team attacks enemies directly ahead with a forward strike. Each team's Forward Power Attack differs between each other in terms of performance:
- Team Sonic: Knuckles grabs Tails in his right hand as he curls up into a spinball form and throws a powerful forward punch with his right fist while using Tails as a melee weapon. This is called the Dash Punch.
- Team Dark: Omega grabs Rouge in his right hand as she curls up into a spinball form and retracts his right hand so Rouge rests in his wrist socket. He then throws a forward vertical punch with his right arm while using Rouge as a melee weapon. This is called the Dash Punch.
- Team Rose: Big pulls out his fishing rod with his left hand and uses it as a club to knock his targets. This is called the Umbrella Attack.
- Team Chaotix: Vector thrusts his head forward and crushes his targets with his enormous jaws.
To perform this technique in gameplay, the selected team must be in Power Formation with the Power type member as the leader. The player then has to press // to execute the Forward Power Attack.
