The Team Ultimate[1] is a move that appears in Team Sonic Racing. It is a technique that allows car racers to achieve an unstoppable speed boost.


When performing the Team Ultimate, the user, while riding a racing vehicle, surrounds themselves in a fiery golden aura that grants their vehicle a massive speed boost, thereby turning them into an unstoppable projectile that can plow through any obstacle and rival racer.

In gameplay, the Team Ultimate is a move that every character in the game can perform. When performing this move, the racer gains a radical speed boost that not only allows them to drive faster, but also send opposing racers skidding out of control by colliding with them. In addition, it makes the user invincible against attacks and collisions with breakable objects for as long as the Team Ultimate is in effect. Hitting enemy cars while using Team Ultimate extends its duration, and stuns enemies. Also, while each character on one's team can activate the Team Ultimate individually, if the whole team uses it at the same time, their Team Ultimates will last longer.

To perform the Team Ultimate, the player must press PSTriangleButton/Y button/Switch x while their Ultimate Meter, which can be charged by performing team actions, is full. Once the Team Ultimate is activated however, the Ultimate Meter starts to drain, and once it empties, the Team Ultimate will end.

List of songs used

While the Team Ultimate is active, the background music will change depending on the character. Each song appears to be a sped up remix of a song closely associated with the character. For example a "Reach for the Stars (Super Sonic ver.)" remix will play for Sonic,[2] while a "Dreams of an Absolution" remix will play for Silver.[3]
