Not to be confused with the move Quick Step.

The Side Step[1] is a parkour move that appears in Sonic Lost World. When using this move, the user can hop left and right during a Wall Climb.


When performing a Side Step, the user quickly darts left or right across the surface of a wall. In gameplay, the move can be used by tilting the left analog stick (all versions) or Controlpadds.png (Nintendo 3DS version only) in the desired direction, then pressing WiiDSA.png/DSB.png to quickly hop across. After the Side Step is complete, the player comes to a stop, where they can either perform another Side Step or continue using the Wall Climb. Unlike the Wall Climb, the Side Step does not have a limit on how long it lasts during a single use.
