The Metal Booster is a vehicle that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is one of Metal Sonic's personal sports car for racing competitions.


In Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, the Metal Booster resembles a hoverbike with a mostly blue paint job. The vehicle is mainly composed of three sections: the back (where the seat is), the engine, and two front parts, held together by metal bars which serve as handlebars. During Metal Sonic's All-Star Move, the frontal sections of the hoverbike clamp together, releasing two plates that produce a laser field.

In Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, the Metal Booster has three distinct appearances that depend on its mode:

  • Car mode: In car mode, the Metal Booster takes the form of a futuristic ATV with a noticeable resemblance to its previous appearance.
  • Plane mode: In plane mode, the Metal Booster transforms into a futuristic hoverbike/hang-glider combo.
  • Boat mode: In boat mode, the Metal Booster splitting its hull in two for racing across water.
