— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Knuckles Guard (ナックルズガード Nakkuruzugādo?) is a move used primarily by Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Knuckles's Guard Skill.


The user rises one of their fists to brace themselves upon incoming attacks. This briefly forms a spherical field, which is signified by a purple pulse emerging from the user, around the user that can block any incoming attacks.

In gameplay, if the player successfully deflects an attack with Knuckles Guard, half of the received damage is transferred to the Ichikoro Gauge. If the blocked attack was a Special Move, the player's Ichikoro Gauge becomes completely filled up instead.

Emerl can randomly obtain this skill after participating in a fight with Knuckles, either with or against him.
