Tail Blast[1] (テイルブラスト Teiru Burasuto?) is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a POW move used by the Giant Scorpions, in which it fires poisonous blasts.


When performing the Tail Blast, the Giant Scorpion raises its tail, opens its poisonous stinger and fires a blue energy projectile at the opponent.

In gameplay, the Tail Blast deals attack damage to a single target with two strikes. When its strikes deal damage, Tail Blast is guaranteed to inflict Poisoned on the target.[1]

Real-Time Interaction

When Tail Blast is performed in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to evade Tail Blast optimally. If done correctly, the attack will be nullified. For these actions, the player has to touch the inside of six circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles.

Missing or not touching these circles correctly will increase the chances of the attack connecting.
