Sonic Flare (ソニックフレアー Sonikkufureā?) is a move used primarily by Sonic the Hedgehog in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Sonic's Heavy Attack.


When performing Sonic Flare, the user first falls straight down and carries his entire body on one hand. Using break dance moves (via the flare technique in acrobatics), the user then does a sweeping kick across the opponent in a circular motion, before shifting over to his other hand and lifting his legs up on one hand (and then hopping back into neutral stance).

In gameplay, the Sonic Flare knocks opponents away when it makes a clean hit. Also, when the user leaps back from using Sonic Flare, they are considered to be in midair. While this back leap may offer some set protection against certain attacks, it is too brief to follow it up with any airborne actions when on even terrain.

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