Speed Down is an Item Box obstacle that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. When obtained, it slows an Extreme Gear rider down to a crawl and prevent GP actions.

Description

In gameplay, when the player obtains Speed Down, a heavy metal ball appears and is connected to the playable character's Extreme Gear with a chain. When this happens, the player's speed is drastically reduced. In addition, Speed Down prevents the player from using GP actions, namely Gravity Control and Gravity Dive. Its effects only last for a limited amount of time, however.
