Shadow's air attack. He performs a Downwards Kick in midair. He gains momentum by rolling in the air.

— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Shadow Rocket (シャドウロケット Shadōroketto?) is a move used primarily by Shadow the Hedgehog in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Shadow's Air Attack.


When performing Shadow Rocket, the user rolls around horizontally in mid-air and ascends a little higher into the air. The user then launches a Downward Kick by first stretching out their leg and titling his foot on the stretched leg slightly inward, while aiming it at the opponent below.

In gameplay, the first portion of the attack is able to damage the opponent before the dive kick comes out, via the rolling portion.

Emerl can randomly obtain this skill after participating in a fight with Shadow, either with or against him.
