Sonic the Hedgehog series
Torches are large statues of different sizes and appearances which hold flames on top of them. They can be found scattered across the
Stages they appear in. In gameplay, the player is capable of igniting and extinguishing Torches, which will normally trigger a reaction in the environment that is often essential for the player to progress the game, similar to a switch. Touching a burning Torch will damage the player.
, Torches carries flames in two colors: blue and red. In this game, Torches resemble either standing pedestals resembling a skeleton arm, floating round stands or are just on the ground. Torches are found exclusively in Sonic Heroes Hang Castle and Mystic Mansion, where they, according to Dr. Eggman, prevent those entering Mystic Mansion from leaving by conventional means as long as they are burning.
The player can light a Torch using an offensive
Power Formation move and extinguish them with Tornado Jump or the Jump Dash (if the player has collected three Power Cores for the latter). For Team Dark and the Super Hard Mode versions of Mystic Mansion and Hang Castle, the player sometimes has to light Torches to open a door blocking the path. In Team Chaotix's version of Mystic Mansion, the player's objective in the normal mission is to extinguish all sixty red Torches and in the extra mission, the player's objective is to extinguish all forty-six blue Torches. The order of torches after accessing every Checkpoint and room are as following:
The web room with the giant
The room accessed with the
Orb switch after the web room
The penultimate room
The final room
