The Wide Power Attack is a Power Formation maneuver used by Team Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose and Team Chaotix in Sonic Heroes after obtaining a red Power Core. When performing this move, the Power Type character from each team (Knuckles the Echidna, E-123 Omega, Big the Cat and Vector the Crocodile) attack all surrounding enemies with a single, widespread attack.
When performing the Wide Power Attack, the Power type character on the team breaks out a final area-of-effect move in all directions that damages everything caught within it. Each team's Wide Power Attack differs from each other in terms of performance and effects:
- Team Sonic: Knuckles launches a single punch into the ground, causing shockwaves to erupt nearby. This is called the Volcanic Dunk.
- Team Dark: Omega uses concealed weaponry in his arms and shoots them in a circle. This is called the Omega Arm.
- Team Rose: Big pulls out his Fishing Rod and starts swinging his fishing reel around dangerously. This is called Big Fishing.
- Team Chaotix: Vector falls down and spins around on his tail as he uses his putrid breath to knock enemies into submission. This is called Vector Breath.
To perform the Wide Power Attack in gameplay, the selected team must be in Power Formation, and the player must have completed the Remote Power Attack. Right after finishing the Remote Power Attack, the player then has to press // to attack with the Wide Power Attack.
