The Magnet powerup is presented in a glass capsule with a red cap on the top and bottom. Inside it, it has a classic red and white horseshoe magnet. When in effect, it creates a swirling blue aura around the user.
In gameplay, the Magnet can be found on the racing courses, where the player can obtain it by coliding with its item capsule. When obtained, the Magnet will automatically draw Rings from the surrounding lanes on the racing course towards the playable character, allowing for easier Ring collection. Each Magnet lasts for about seven seconds.
- The Magnet is based on the power-up of the same name that appears in Sonic Dash.
- Sonic's Special Power, Dash Magnet, in Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom has the same effect as the Magnet.
