The Size Beams are usually fitted in corridors to shoot lasers down towards the ground. If the playable characters are caught in the beam, it will alter their size. The red Size Beams cause the playable character to become ⅔ of their original size. This will allow them to run through corridors otherwise too narrow to pass though. The blue Size Beams will cause the playable character to return to their default size.
Sonic the Hedgehog CD
In Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Size Beams appear in Metallic Madness Zone 2. In gameplay, the player finds them near the end of the Zone, where they will have to go through a big maze. Upon completing this "maze", the playable character will return to their normal size. Notably, when affected by a Size Beam, any power-ups the player is currently using, such as Power Sneakers and Invincible, will wear off. Also, entering the Time Warp after being affected by the Size Beam will cause the playable character to return to their normal size.
In the Sonic the Comic British comic series published by Fleetway Editions, a midget version of Sonic from a near future encouraged Sonic into a Size Beam to make him small as well. This was done so that Sonic would be able to infiltrate a machine in the Miracle Planet's past to disable it and prevent it from turning the planet into a mechanical wasteland.
In Sonic Mania, after being affected by the Size Beam, Super Sonic will have the appearance of a Sonic with golden fur. He will also keep Sonic's animations.
