Why did it get merged in first place?

Now, I do not believe that they should be merged. The Spin Dash is where you crouch in a game, rev/charge Sonic up, and then he zooms off. The Spin Attack is where you are running and then you press down and he starts spinning. They are 2 completely different things. Even though they both involve spinning/rolling, they have 2 different methods of use, so I don't believe the articles should be merged.

I have to agree with this. Not only it's one of iconic moves from Sonic, but also it is different thing and another variant of Spin Attack. It differs from Spin Attack at some of its mechanics, but especially the way how to do it. Spin Dash also has its own variants as well which got their own articles as well. How weird is that?
It's also weird how Homing Attack, Somersault or Insta-shield do have their own separate articles but then Spin Dash doesn't. Spin Dash also has long history and if I'm right, there have been different ways how player has to performing the move such in Sonic CD and Sonic Generations. I suggest to bring this article back in logical means. I would personally rewrite the whole article readable if it is attached to. MarioSonic (talk) 09:57, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
