The Octo-Boost[1] (オクトパスブースト[2] Okutopasubūsuto?, lit. "Octopus Boost") is an Action Item that appears in Sonic Free Riders. It is used to provide a boost of speed.

Description

Almost identical to the Octo-Ink, the Octo-Boost is a small and spherical blue robot octopus (akin to the Octus) with a button on top of its head.

Overview

The Octo-Boost can be obtained from the different Item Boxes on the race tracks. When using it, rather than releasing ink like the Octo-Ink, the Octo-Boost creates a rocket exhaust from its mouth for a couple of seconds while the characters hold onto it, giving the rider a temporary burst of speed.

To use the Octo-Ink in gameplay, the player must bring one of their hands up in the air and bring it down.
