The Magic Gloves are a set of three yellow spikes attached on the top of the Bounce Bracelet. When wearing the Magic Gloves, they allow Sonic to perform Magic Hands where he captures his enemies in a ball before throwing them.
This Level Up Item is found in City Escape, and the Bounce Bracelet and Flame Ring are required if the player wants easy access to them. After Sonic passes through the shuttle loop, the player must head up the stairs with the rail in the middle that appears in the front and go into the following open space. In the middle of this space there are four steel containers in the ground. The player must break through them with the Bounce Attack and the Magic Gloves will be located at the bottom.
- This Level Up Item allows Sonic to cuddle with enemies in way similar to what he can with Chao.
