The Giant Switch[1] is a gimmick that appears in Sonic Heroes. Essentially, it is a cross between a Switch and a manual platform that can help the player reach higher locations.


The Giant Switch is a large orange and gray trapezoidal prism with tracks on the side and a long cannon on the front. On top of it is a large red disc-shaped button with a blue circle containing a yellow star on its surface.


The Giant Switches are only found in Team Rose's version of Egg Fleet. In gameplay, the player can use them to reach higher areas. By pressing the button on top of it, the entire Giant Switch will rise slightly higher into the air. This can be done repeatedly until it reaches its maximum height. To use it in gameplay, the player has to use Big's Body Press on it
