The Boost is a technique that turns the user into a destructive high-speed projectile. It is also one of Sonic the Hedgehog's signature moves.

Description

When performing the Boost, the user is surrounded in a projectile-shaped energy shield, and they propel forward at speeds beyond the sound barrier, thus turning the user into a highly destructive projectile moving at supersonic speeds.

The Fire Boost is a signature technique of Blaze the Cat where she surrounds herself in flames and propels forward at high speed, thus turning her into a fast and flaming projectile.

Background Information

  • The Boost was based on the technique of the same name in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. It was unnamed in the comic, but is considered tier 2 canon by this site's canon policy, as it does not contradict already established canon from tier 1.
  • The Boost was introduced in the game Sonic Rush. The attack has become a staple of modern Sonic the Hedgehog gameplay.
