Effect Sonic curls into a ball and homes in on the nearest opponent.

Homing Attack (ホーミングアタック) is Sonic's standard special move in Super Smash Flash 2.


When performed, Sonic spins into a ball and then homes in on the nearest opponent, flying toward them. Opponents hit are dealt 8% damage and decent knockback, and the move can be used consecutively after landing another Homing Attack. Sonic's Homing Attack can be charged to increase accuracy and sends him in a downward arc. This move can also be used in recovery to counterattack edgeguarders.

Sonic using the Homing Attack in Sonic Adventure.

The Homing Attack first appeared in Sonic Adventure (though a precursor was seen in Sonic 3D Blast called the Blast Attack) and, as its name implies, it allows the user to home directly into a nearby enemy with a target-seeking midair spin attack. The attack's force from bouncing off targets can be chained to attack several enemies which can be use to traverse certain sections of a stage which are otherwise inaccessible. Since Sonic Adventure, the Homing Attack has been a staple in the Sonic games ever since.

  • Homing Attack was also formerly Super Sonic's standard special move as well, but as of Beta, Super Sonic no longer has access to any special moves.
