The Third Attack[1] is a mechanic that appears in Sonic Battle. It is a category of skill-based moves that the playable characters use to determine their third ground-based combo attack.


Third Attacks are techniques that determine the third attack a playable character makes when executing a ground-based combo. Each individual Third Attack is performed in its own unique way.

While all Third Attacks are the same in function, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses that are determined by two attributes: speed and power. Speed determines how fast the Third Attack is executed and power determines how much damage it deals.

To perform a character's Third Attack in gameplay, the player has to press GameboyB.png right after performing the Second Attack.
