The Tricky Tornado Uppercut (トルネードアッパー Torunēdoappā?, lit. "Tornado Upper") is one of the Special Attack Skills used by Sonic the Werehog in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed. When using this move, Sonic attacks with a spinning uppercut.
When performing this move, Sonic does a forward somersault along the ground as he is guarding, before launching a very high jumping uppercut with his left arm where he stretches out his left arm as he punches and spins around himself in mid-air.
The Tricky Tornado Uppercut becomes available in the game when Sonic the Werehog's Combat parameter reaches level 24. To perform the Tricky Tornado Uppercut in gameplay, the player must pull down the left control stick and press / at the same time while using Guard. In gameplay, the Tricky Tornado Uppercut knocks smaller and medium-sized opponent(s) into the air, allowing the player to attack the airborne enemies with Aerial attacks.
