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 on Maps 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, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses that are determined by two attributes: speed and power.

In gameplay, unlike most other skills, the Running Skill is a passive move that is always active and does not need to be activated by the player.
