A short-ranged slash which crosses three lanes and deals devestating damage. There's nothing corny about this scythe!

— Description, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

The Harvest Time is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a Projectile Item used primarily to attack rivals.


The Harvest Time takes the form of a gray and black scythe with a purple aura emitting from it, both as an icon and on the tracks.


In gameplay, the Harvest Time can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Reaper Metal Sonic. As with most other Items, Metal Sonic can also use the Harvest Time if he uses the Steal Item to steal it from the aforementioned user.

Once obtained, the player can utilize the Harvest Time by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the user performs a horizontal scythe slash around themselves that can damage nearby rival characters on the lanes adjacent to the user, causing them to lose Rings and slow down momentarily. To avoid the Harvest Time, the playable character either has to jump when the scythe is about to hit them or get to a lane that the attack cannot reach.

The Harvest Time can also be upgraded by leveling the user up to level 6 and 12 respectively. At level 6, the Harvest Time's range will be increased, and at level 12, the player will increase the damage dealt with the Harvest Time.
