The Light Speed Attack is an attack invented by Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic and Turbo Mecha Sonic used it in Episode 7. First they charge up energy, shown by blue lights flying towords them. Once it's fully charged, the users experience a huge boost in speed. When Sonic and Mecha Sonic performed this technique simultaneously, they moved as fast as the speed of light (hence, the name), and eventually froze time briefly.


  • If this move wasn't an attack, the user could run around Earth 7 times in 1 second, and if connected to the Moon, could run there in 1.3 seconds. It would take 8 seconds to run all the way to the Sun (which is impossible unless the user can survive the temperature, 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit), and 8 years to run to Pluto (as opposed to 320,000 years in a space shuttle).
  • This move is one of Sonic's more offensive attacks seen in the series as most of his fighting skills relate to a hit and dodge concept. In Sonic Adventure, this move is powerful and fast enough to destroy every enemy and turrets in sight.
  • When both Sonic and Turbo Mecha Sonic use this move, both are seen fighting equally as both were able to score hits on the other simaltaneously. This also happened when Shadow and Turbo Mecha Sonic both used the Chaos Blast Attack in which both characters were unaffected by each other's attack.
