Slows down the opponent for a given time.


— Description, Sonic Rush[1]

Slow[1] (スロー[2] Surō?), also referred to as Brake (ブレーキ[3][4] Burēki?), is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Exclusive to multiplayer, this power-up can slow down opponents when obtained.

Description

Item Boxes that contain Slow generally depict an icon that display a moving green/white orb.

Slow is designed specifically for multiplayer gameplay. When the player obtains Slow, the opposing player will instantly be slowed down significantly; not even the Super Boost/Fire Boost will give a noticeable increase in speed. This way, the player can gain the upper hand against the opponent in the multiplayer races. After a few moments however, Slow will wear off.
