When performing this move, Knuckles and Shadow team up to hurl Shade into the air, who then falls down and attacks the opponent. This attack may leave the foe Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood distracted.
When performing Hard Line, Shade moves up in front of the selected opponent, before Knuckles then jumps up in front of Shade. As Shade then jumps into the air, Knuckles opens his palms for Shade to land on. When Shade then lands on his palms, Knuckles gives Shade a boost, hurling her high into the air. At the apex of Shade's ascent, Shadow
teleports up to Shade and grabs her with both hands and then throws her higher into the air, before teleporting back to the ground. After reaching her maximum height, Shade dives directly down on top of the opponent, striking the opponent with both her fists first, before retreating to her team position.
In gameplay, Hard Line deals attack damage to a single target. When dealing damage, Hard Line has a chance of inflicting
distracted on the target. The higher the level of Hard Line is, the more attack damage it will deal and the greater the possibility that it will inflict distracted on an opponent.

real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to execute Hard Line optimally:
The player has to touch and stay inside the outer circle that appears when it overlaps the inner circle and follow it in a small curve on the lower part of the screen from right to left.
