— Description, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

The Ice Boost 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 Ice Boost's icon takes the form of a shield of ice that moves forward. IN gameplay, this power-up becomes an icy aura that surrounds the user and leaves an freezing trail in its wake.

In gameplay, the Ice Boost can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Amy, Chaos, Elf Classic Sonic , Ice Slicer Jet, Jingle Belle Amy and Reaper Metal Sonic.

Once obtained, the player can utilize the Ice Boost by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the Ice Boost will increase the speed of the user for a short amount of time. The duration of the Ice Boost is shown by the decreasing gauge on top of this power-up's icon on the bottom of the HUD whenever the Ice Boost is in effect. However, the Ice Boost will be disabled if the user collides with an obstacle while using it. In addition, any rival character who makes contact with the user while the Ice Boost is in effect will lose Rings and be frozen.

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