When Sonic vaults over an obstacle, press ZR again to dash!

— Tails' Tips #3, Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter[1]

The Vault Dash[1] is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a parkour technique that allows the user to gain speed after a Vault.


The Vault Dash is a simple technique used to dash after the user Vaults over a small environmental obstacle.

In the the Wii U version and PC version of Sonic Lost World, the Vault Dash is used by Sonic and Super Sonic. In the former, it is also used by the Virtual Hedgehogs. In gameplay, if the user happens to come across a ledge, they immediately climb thanks to the Vault technique. However, instead of walking slowly after doing so, the player can press WiiU-Button-ZR.png to perform a midair dash right after climbing the ledge.


  • The midair dash pose that is assumed during a Vault Dash is similar to the Jump Dash in the Wii version of Sonic Colors.
