Uppercut (アッパーカット Appākatto?) is a POW move used exclusively by Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Knuckles delivers an uppercut to his foe. This attack pierces armor.
When performing Uppercut, Knuckles walks up to an opponent and focuses his best punch into a powerful uppercut that he hits his opponent with. After that, Knuckles returns to his team position.
In gameplay, Uppercut deals attack damage to a single target. When dealing damage, Uppercut pierces armor. The higher the level of Uppercut is, the more attack damage it will deal.
When performing Uppercut in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to execute Uppercut optimally. For these actions, the player has to touch and stay inside the outer circle that appears when it overlaps the inner circle and follow it in a small curve on the right side of the screen from the bottom of the screen to the top. Missing or not touching these circles correctly will either result in Knuckles missing the strike or the damage from the attack being reduced.
