It would take a miracle for you to avoid my attacks!

Alf Layla wa-Layla, Sonic and the Secret Rings

The Spirit Blast[1] is a move used by Alf Layla wa-Layla in Sonic and the Secret Rings. When performing this technique, Alf Layla wa-Layla forms a spiritual ball to throw at opponents.


When performing the Spirit Blast, Alf Layla wa-Layla gathers the words of the Arabian Nights into a gigantic purple ball of spiritual energy and throws it at his opponent. The sheer size and speed of the Spirit Blast make it virtually impossible to dodge; Alf Layla wa-Layla emphasized that such a feat would take a "miracle."

The Spirit Blast is only used during Alf Layla wa-Layla's battle with Darkspine Sonic. When using it, Alf Layla wa-Layla moves away from Sonic and throws the Spirit Blast at him. As the attack closes in, use Speed Break to hit it head-on and shake the Wii remote to make Sonic knock the Spirit Blast back at its user. After getting hit by the Spirit Blast, Alf Layla wa-Layla's 'heart' will be exposed, leaving him open to further attacks.
