Tikal, Sonic Adventure 2

Wrath of Gaia (大地のいかり Daichi no Ikari?, lit. "Earth's Anger") is one of Tikal's special attacks in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. When using this technique, Tikal punches into the ground and creates tremors that can disable the opponent.


When performing Wrath of Gaia, Tikal jumps into the air and then strikes the ground with a punch fueled by her spiritual powers on the way down, triggering an earthquake to trip her opponents.[1] In gameplay, using Wrath of Gaia unleashes tremors throughout the area that affects the opposing opponent no matter where they are, which causes them to trip and be left dazed for a few seconds. If performed while climbing, the opponents will be knocked off the walls. If performed while the opponents are gliding or in the middle of a jump, it will have no effect.

Wrath of Gaia can only be performed by playing as Tikal in the games' two-player mode. To use it, the player must press DreamcastB.png/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO.png/Gamecube X Button.png on the ground after collecting twenty Rings. To use it again, the player has to collect another twenty Rings.


  • The name "Gaia" is derived from the real-life Greek Goddess Gaia who was regarded as the personification of the Earth.
