The spin attack[1] is a move that appears in the Sonic Boom franchise. It is a technique that consists of the user curling into a high-speed projectile.


When performing the spin attack, the user curls tightly into a concussive ball and rolls forward at high speed. At the same time, the user is usually surrounded in an aura that leaves a colored trail in the user's wake. In this state, the user becoming a powerful projectile, capable of breaking through rock, metal walls and multiple Badniks.[2] The attack is also nearly unavoidable; in Sonic's case, until he failed to use it on Lyric the Last Ancient, no one had ever been able to dodge the spin attack.[1] If the user's legs are injured though, the spin attack cannot be executed properly.[3]
