Sonic Battle (ソニックバトル) is a fighting game for the Game Boy Advance. The gameplay consists of 2D sprites fighting in three dimensional environments similar to the Double Dragon games. Unlike traditional fighters, there are no command inputs that have to be memorized in order to perform well at the game.
In the Super Smash Flash series
In both Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2, the movesets of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Shadow include many moves from this game. In SSF, Sonic uses the Windmill as his side attack and the Sonic Rocket as his down aerial. Tails uses the Magic Hook as his down attack and the Energy Ball as his standard attack, up attack and down aerial. Knuckles uses the Rock Free Fall as his down attack. Shadow uses Shadow Guard as his standard attack, Chaos Upper as his side attack, and Chaos Magic as his down attack and down aerial.
There are far fewer moves based on this game in SSF2. Sonic uses the Sonic Eagle as his forward aerial and the Sonic Rocket as his down aerial, while Tails now uses the Energy Ball Blaster as his standard special move.
In the original Super Smash Flash, Sonic's, Tails', Knuckles', and Shadow's sprites were all ripped directly from this from this game. In Super Smash Flash 2, Sonic's and Tails' sprites originally used their Sonic Battle sprites as their basis, alongside Sonic Advance sprites, but both characters would eventually be completely redesigned with custom sprites for the Beta version of the game.
