Unlike other power-ups, Item Boxes containing the Special Combination are golden monitors.


The Special Combination in action.

The Special Combination is a rare item that can only be found in Oil Desert Zone Acts 2 and 3 and Sky Fortress Zone Act 2. When picked up, the screen will turn dark, and Sonic and Tails will start bouncing all over the screen in ball form, destroying any Badnik they collide with. During this, the player is prompted to repeatedly press A/X to increase the Ring and point value of the attack. The attack lasts for five seconds, and finishes with Sonic and Tails coming back together for a unified slam into the ground that destroys any remaining Badniks and awards the player with the bonus Rings and points.
