Quake[1] (クエイク Kueiku?) is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a POW move used by the Shield Pawn and Shield Pawn Mk. II, in which they create tremors in the earth.


When performing Quake, the user walks forward and begin moving their torso up and down while spinning (without moving their legs), using their massive weight to create tremors.

In gameplay, Quake deals attack damage to all playable characters present with 100% accuracy.[1] When dealing damage, Quake has a 50% chance of inflicting Stunned on the targets.[1]

Quick time event

When Quake is performed in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to evade Quake optimally. If done correctly, the attack will be nullified. For these actions, the player has to touch the inside of eight circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles.

Missing or not touching these circles correctly will increase the chances of the attack connecting, although this specific move has 100% accuracy and is therefore inescapable.
