'''Switch Balls''' are technological objects exclusive to the haunted levels of ''[[Sonic Heroes]]''. These switches have 2 different functions in their levels. In [[Hang Castle]] and [[Robot Storm]], they flip the teams upside down. However, [[Mystic Mansion]] is the only stage that will perform teleport the teams from one room to the other. A light will spread onto the screen once touched by one of the characters of the team. Once they've been transported by these switches, they cannot return to the area where they've left off if they try to touch the switch that already took effect in the previous area. In the PS2 version of the game, there is a graphical glitch that causes the effect of the switch will become even lighter making it appear to brighten up the screen as it spreads onto the screen.

Switch Balls are technological objects exclusive to the haunted levels of Sonic Heroes. These switches have 2 different functions in their levels. In Hang Castle and Robot Storm, they flip the teams upside down. However, Mystic Mansion is the only stage that will perform teleport the teams from one room to the other. A light will spread onto the screen once touched by one of the characters of the team. Once they've been transported by these switches, they cannot return to the area where they've left off if they try to touch the switch that already took effect in the previous area. In the PS2 version of the game, there is a graphical glitch that causes the effect's alpha blending to change to additive alpha and in some areas like the crossing gap in Mystic Mansion, it will become fully opaque rendering it non transparent leaving some black on the edges of the effect.
