Silver also uses many of the standard Sonic moves and attacks. These include Homing Attack, Spin Dash, and Spin Attack. Silver is also shown to be able to use Chaos Control on several accounts to warp through time and space.

This allows him to put a circular force field around himself and grab and throw any object (or objects) in that field. He is also able to use charged dashes[7].
