For the skill, see Heav Attack.

The Heavy Attack[1] is a mechanic that appears in Sonic Battle. It is a category of skill-based moves that the playable characters use to determine their attack for blowing opponents away.


First Attacks are techniques that determine the move the playable character will use when landing a heavy-hit move on an opponent. Each individual Heavy Attack is performed in its own unique way.

In addition to inflicting damage, using the Heavy Attack successfully on an opponent will result in said opponents being blown away from the user and being damaged effectively.

While all Heavy Attacks are the same in function, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses that are determined by two attributes: speed and power.

To perform a character's Heavy Attack in gameplay, the player has to press either forward, left or right on Controlpadds.png and GameboyB.png at the same time (the direction chosen when pressing Controlpadds.png determines the direction the opponent is blown away in). Alternatively, the player can press GameboyB.png four times in succession to blow the opponent away in the direction the playable character is facing. Also, should the playable character successfully blow an opponent away with the Heavy Attack, the playable character can case after them with a fast jump by pressing Controlpadds.png in the direction the opponent was blow away in. During this case, the player can bang an opponent on to the ground with a Pursuit Attack if they time it correctly.
