Aside from AoStH Sonic, this is the only Sonic that has a Looney Tunes feel to it and I feel like he should play up to that. If you give him the peelout, it’ll feel like a Junio ripoff, which is something no one wants. Here’s my move suggestions:
1. The Drop Skip/Dodge: Sonic does a heck ton of dodging in SMA like he does in that clip with the Heavy Gunner you showed earlier. The way this could function in game is when you press Spin and a direction, Sonic will leap into that direction. If no direction is head, Sonic will leap straight up (Note that it will be faster than a jump). If you hold Spin during the maneuver, Sonic will curl up into a ball and it’ll act as a Drop Dash, speeding off into whatever direction you held. If you didn’t hold a direction and Sonic dodged straight up, the Drop Dash will take you wherever the camera is pointed. The entire maneuver works the same while midair.
2. Drop Dash: Literally just the Drop Dash. Personally, I’d make it so that it doesn’t slam to the ground like most people’s versions do and have it act exactly as it does in Mania where the jump is unaffected and it can be cancelled at any time
