Tail Swipe (テイルストライク Teirusutoraiku?, lit. "Tail Strike") is a POW move used by Dragodons in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Dragodons attack with their tails.


When performing Tail Swipe, the Dragodons crawl up to their opponents where they swing their powerful tail across their foes before retreating to their spot.

In gameplay, Tail Swipe deals attack damage to all playable characters present. This attack will (without player influence) always hit the opponents, regardless of their stats.[1] When dealing damage, Tail Swipe has a chance of inflicting weakened on the targets.

Real-Time Interaction

When Tail Swipe 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 Swipe optimally. If done correctly, the attack will be nullified. For these actions, the player has to touch the inside of three 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.
