The Running Skill[1] is a mechanic that appears in Sonic Battle. It is a category of skill-based moves that the playable characters use to determine the velocity of their Map movements.


Running Skills are techniques that determine the velocity of the playable characters' movements during combat. Essentially, they tell how fast a playable character is able to run during a match.

While all Running Skills are the same in function, they are determined by their Speed; the higher it is, the faster and better the Running Skill will be. Conversely, Power is (almost) always kept at a minimum, since Running Skills cannot perform attacks on their own. As such, they are passive moves that are always active and do not need to be activated by the player.

  • The Sonic Run, in which the user runs at supersonic speeds (around 915-3,806 mph), has seven "Speed" units. If these units can be used as a measurement of speed for Running Skills, then each one of them equals around 130-543 mph.
