When performing Wall Run, the user runs perpendicularly along nearly any wall without gravity affecting them for a while.
In the Wii U version, Nintendo 3DS version and PC version of Sonic Lost World, the Wall Run is used by Sonic and Super Sonic. In the Wii U version, it is also used by the Virtual Hedgehogs. To perform this move in gameplay, the player must Dash diagonally towards a wall without stopping. After running on a wall for about four seconds the user will slow down, but they can perform a Wall Spin Dash to regain speed.
