The Strange Relief (レリーフ) is an obstacle which appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 3's Marble Garden Zone. They shoot arrows which follow a linear trajectory. Hitting the gem on its forehead three times will deactive the Relief and open a wall somewhere near it. Knuckles cannot climb up or down Strange Reliefs.
