From Sonic Retro
|Games: Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II|
|Hits to defeat: 3 (Sonic 3 only)|
The 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.
Reliefs return in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, referred to as Strange Reliefs. In this game, they are found in Sylvania Castle Zone with the same pattern as in Sonic 3, but in this game they are invincible, serving as obstacles.
