The Power Gong[1] is a gimmick that appears in Sonic Heroes. It is a gong-like device that the player can use to reach far away areas with Power Type characters.

Description

The Power Gong is very similar to a suspended gong in appearance. On one side, the flat disc is red with a smaller blue circle containing a yellow star, and the other side has several circles with a red outer ring, grey inner rings and a red middle. The disc itself is held up by an arch-shaped frame that is positioned closely to the edges of the disc with a hinge on top.

Overview

In gameplay, the Power Gong's function is to send the playable character flying through the air to another area of the Stage, essentially serving as either a shortcut, alternate route or only means of getting to another location. When using it, the Power Gong will flip over and push the player through the air with a powerful hit from the rear. Only Power Type characters are able to interact with it. To use the Power Gong successfully in gameplay, the player must use a Forward Power Attack on it up close.
