Overturn is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. When using this technique, the user flips over a large object.


When using Overturn, Shadow grabs hold of an object as large as trucks or flaps of concrete with one hand and lift it slightly, before then lifting it such force that it will flip the object over and destroy anything it lands on. This move is very useful for destroying enemies without the Homing Attack. Sometimes, this will also reveal Power-Up Items and Weapons beneath the object.

In gameplay, Overturn can only be used on bigger objects that are surrounded by a green line below it. To use in gameplay, the player has to press Gamecube X Button.png/Circle/XboxB.png twice near the object.[1]
