You may be looking for Knuckle Sandwich Combo, a Skill in Sonic Unleashed.

Knuckles throws both Amy and Sonic as weapons in a brutal attack that may stun the target.

— Description, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood[1]

Knuckles Sandwich (ナックルズスロー Nakkuruzusurō?, lit. "Knuckles Throw") is a POW move used by Knuckles the Echidna, with the aid of Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose, in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Knuckles catches Sonic and Amy and hurls them into an enemy with great power. This attack may leave the foe stunned.


When performing Knuckles Sandwich, Sonic and Amy first both move up in front on Knuckles. Knuckles then grabs Sonic and Amy in each of his hands and starts spinning around himself while holding onto Sonic and Amy. After building up momentum, Knuckles hurls both Sonic and Amy into the opponent, delivering a brutal frontal attack. After slightly rebounding from hitting the opponent, Sonic and Amy then each deal an additional strike to the opponent simultaneously, before retreating to their team positions.

In gameplay, Knuckles Sandwich deals attack damage to a single target with two strikes. When it deals damage, Knuckles Sandwich has a chance of inflicting stun on the target. The higher the level of Knuckles Sandwich is, the more attack damage it will deal and the greater the possibility that it will inflict stun on an opponent.

Real-Time Interaction

When performing Knuckles Sandwich in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to execute Knuckles Sandwich optimally:

  1. The player has to touch and stay inside the outer circle that appears when it overlaps the inner circle and follow it in a small curve on the right part of the screen from the bottom of the screen to the top.
  2. The player has to touch the inside of two circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles.
  3. The player has to touch and stay inside the outer circle that appears when it overlaps the inner circle and follow it vertically across the middle of the screen, from the top of the screen to the bottom.

Missing or not touching these circles correctly will either result in Sonic missing a strike or the damage from the attack being reduced.


Level PP Cost Damage Effect
I 5 2 x 125% of Attack damage Stun (30% chance)
II 5 2 x 150% of Attack damage Stun (50% chance)
III 5 2 x 175% of Attack damage Stun (80% chance)


  • The way Knuckles holds Sonic and Amy is similar to the Power Formation for Team Sonic from Sonic Heroes (albeit Amy is switched with Tails).
