The Shield Charge[1] (シールドチャージ[2] Shīrudochāji?) is a power-up that appears in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed. When obtained, Sonic the Werehog's Shield Gauge will be replenished.


The Shield Charge resembles a cyan prolate spheroid. It floats in mid-air and emits white waves that quickly dissipate.


When touching the Shield Charge in gameplay, Sonic the Werehog's Shield Gauge will be refilled to its maximum capacity.

The Shield Charges can only be found in the game's Nighttime Action Stages, where they are hidden inside specific breakable objects. To expose them, the player has to destroy these breakable objects.
