Trick Rank +1 is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an Extreme Gear Gear Part that increases the Rank of the player's Tricks.


Trick Rank +1 is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a light blue-colored circle with a black silhouette of Sonic on an Extreme Gear with a "+1" inscribed in it.


In the game, Trick Rank +1 is permanently installed into only certain Extreme Gears. When in use, Trick Rank +1 increases the player's jumping height when using Trick Zones, which results in the rank of the player's Tricks being increased. This allows the player to accumulate more Gravity Points and access higher routes. For each Trick Rank +1 used, the rank of the player's Tricks is increased by one rank.

In gameplay, Trick Rank +1 and its ability will be disabled when starting a new race. To activate Trick Rank +1, the player must press one of the following buttons after collecting a certain number of Rings:
