The Hang[1] is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a parkour technique that allows the user to hang from ceilings after performing a Wall Climb to reach the top.


When performing Hang, the user dangles from a ceiling by hanging on to it with their arms.

In the the Wii U version and PC version of Sonic Lost World, the Hang is used by Sonic and Super Sonic. In the former, it is also used by the Virtual Hedgehogs. In gameplay, the Hang allows the playable character to move across ceilings. When using it, the playable character can then move left or right. Typically, the Hang can only be performed after a Wall Climb and on ceilings with certain physical features, such as vines or metal bars.

To perform the Hang in gameplay the player must press Snnwiidsxbuttondisco.png/Snnwiidsybuttondisco.png upon reaching the ceiling during a Wall Climb. The player can also move using the analog stick, and hold WiiU-Button-ZR.png to move faster.
