Get a Boost from this Wisp friend, and reduce your fall speed while you're at it. Dodging attacks is a breeze while you're in the air!

— Description, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

The Green Hover is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a Boost Item used primarily to increase the user's speed.


The Green Hover takes the form of a green energy-based hemisphere, a power that is derived from the Green Wisps. In gameplay, this power-up makes the Variable Wispon glow green and causes it to form an energy-based hemisphere that sprouts from its gun barrel, pulling the user forward while leaving a green energy trail in the user's wake.


In gameplay, the Green Hover can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Whisper.

Once obtained, the player can utilize the Green Hover by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the Green Hover will increase the speed of the user for a short amount of time. The duration of the Green Hover is shown by the decreasing gauge on top of this power-up's icon on the bottom of the HUD whenever the Green Hover is in effect. In addition, it allows the user to switch between floating slightly above the ground, completely above ground and sliding along the ground. However, the Green Hover will not make the user invulnerable to collision with obstacles while it is in effect.

The Green Hover can also be upgraded by leveling the user up to level 2, 8 and 14 respectively. For each upgrade, the Green Hover will last longer.
