The Log[1] is a gimmick that appears in Sonic and the Black Knight. It is a tree trunk used for launching the user through the air and the world of Camelot's equivalent of the Ramp.


The Log is a small tree trunk half embedded in the ground in a slightly raised angle. They are often found in rows of three.

Logs only appear in Shrouded Forest. In gameplay, much like the Ramp, whenever the player steps onto the Logs, the playable character will be launched forward through midair for a short while before landing again. This is often useful for reaching objects otherwise out of reach. More often than not though, there will be thorns sprouting out of the ground to attack the player when using the Logs. When using them, the player earns a "Dash Bonus" for their score.


  • The air tricks the characters pull whenever using Logs, are the same as the tricks performed by using the Rainbow Ring in Sonic Heroes.
