The Homing Attack is an attack used by Sonic the Hedgehog and is his most basic attack in many games that originated from Sonic Adventure.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Homing Attack is Sonic's standard B move. When used, he curls up in midair and attacks his closest opponent as he does in the Sonic Adventure series. The move can also be used limitless in the air thus helping in recovering. However, this attack also homes in on items such as the Smash ball.
If two Sonics (or Kirby with Sonic's hat) attack one another with this attack, they will slowly jump upwards until they reach the top of the stage. This is similar to the Luigi Ladder.
