The Kick Attack,[1] also known as simply Kick[2] (キック Kikku?), is an attack that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is one of Rouge the Bat's signature moves, being the equivalent of Knuckles' Punch Attack. It is a kick combo which has served as the foundation for Rouge's close combat-oriented attacks.


When performing the Kick Attack, Rouge must be standing on the ground. She will then deliver a combo of rapid and powerful kicks to the opponents in front of her.

Game appearances[]

Sonic Adventure 2[]

Sonic Adventure 2 and its enhanced port, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, saw the introduction of he Kick Attack, with it being part of Rouge's three-hit combo attack:

  1. Rouge swings her left leg and delivers a low kick.
  2. Rouge follows up with a slightly higher swing with her right leg.
  3. Rouge finishes by jumping into the air while kicking in front with both legs in a rapid manner.
