Not to be confused with the Rocket Booster.

Time for a change of pace! Kick the Eggmobile's engine into overdrive for a burst of speed.

— Description, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

The Rocket Boost is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a Boost Item used primarily to increase the user's speed.


The Rocket Boost's icon takes the form of the Egg Mobile with large flames coming from its exhausts. In gameplay, this power-up becomes a yellow-orange aura in front of the Egg Mobile, whose engine is kicked into overdrive as the flames from its exhausts increase in size.


In gameplay, the Rocket Boost can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Eggman.

Once obtained, the player can utilize the Rocket Boost by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the Rocket Boost will increase the speed of the user for a short amount of time. The duration of the Rocket Boost is shown by the decreasing gauge on top of this power-up's icon on the bottom of the HUD whenever the Rocket Boost is in effect. However, the Rocket Boost will be disabled if the user collides with an obstacle while using it.

The Rocket Boost can also be upgraded by leveling the user up to level 2, 8 and 14 respectively. For each upgrade, the Rocket Boost will last longer.
