— Australian instruction manual, Sonic Lost World (Wii U)

The Wall Run[1] is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a parkour technique that allows the user to run along any wall.


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.[1] 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.
