Triangle Dive[1] (トライアングルダイブ Toraiangurudaibu?) is a Power Formation maneuver used by Team Sonic and Team Dark in Sonic Heroes. When performing this move, the team members join together to drift through midair or reach higher areas by utilizing vertical drafts.


When performing the Triangle Dive, all three members on the team arrange themselves in midair into a triangle shape. They then put their hands together in the center of the formation, allowing them to catch the air beneath their bodies and slow their descent. While descending, each team member gives off their respective aura.

While using the Triangle Dive, the player is able to greatly slow his/her descend through midair and as well slowly move in all directions, similar to Glide. Also, in areas with vertical drafts (e.g. fans), the player is able to catch the upward draft generated at these places and ascend to higher sections by using the Triangle Dive above the source of these updrafts.

To perform the Triangle Dive, the selected character has to be in Power Formation with Power type member (Knuckles the Echidna or E-123 Omega) as the leader. The player must then press and hold down the jump button (PSXButton/XboxA/A Button GameCube v2) while jumping or in midair and can as well use the control stick to move in different directions. To break the Triangle Dive, the player has to release the jump button.
