Sonic, otherwise known as the Blue Blur, is making his second appearance in the Smash series. He originally appeared in Brawl, where he was one of two third party characters, alongside Snake. He is the fastest character in the game. Good luck trying to catch him. I will be analyzing his first set of special moves.
His neutral special is a Homing Attack. If any opponents are close enough to Sonic, this move will hone in on them and crash into them. It can deal anywhere from 6% damage to 12% damage. If no opponents are around Sonic, he will just crash into the floor.
His side special is Spin Dash. This move can be charged up but has to be used before doing anything else. It does not deal much damage, but can be used to start a combo. It deals about 5% damage to 7% damage.
His up special is Spring Jump. If used on the ground, opponents can use it. Otherwise, it cannot. It can be pocketed, however. The spring deals about 4% damage if it touches an opponent when used in the air.
His down special is Spin Charge. This move is similar to Spin Dash, but it deals about 2% damage and can hit multiple times.
