Special Moves, also referred to as Purple Attacks, are a special form of attack introduced in Disney Infinity: 2.0 Edition. They are the most powerful form of attack that a character has. The attacks are unlike normal attacks in that they can only be used when the Special Move Meter, which appears below the character's stats on screen, is full to at least one bar. (The default Special Move Meter can only hold one bar, but sometimes, the bar can be upgraded via a character's Skill Tree to hold two bars; in this case, only one of those two bars must be full in order for the character to use a special move. The extra bar merely enables a player to be able to hold more, so that a player can potentially perform two special moves back-to-back.) The meter is upgraded via the use of purple sparks. For the most part (there are a few exceptions), each character's special move is different, and unique to the character.
Special Abilities by Character
- None of the Playable Characters released for Disney Infinity were given special moves in Disney Infinity 2.0, due to the abilities not existing in the first game. This includes Crystal Sorcerer Mickey, who was released with the 2.0 characters. This may be updated in the future; however, John Vignocchi has said that it will most likely not happen in Disney Infinity 3.0, as the developers' goal in that game was to provide as many new characters as possible, not to update the old characters.
Not many of the special abilities of the charaters have been revealed thus far. Those currently known are as follows:
- Fear: Fear jumps into the air and causes pink energy to flow from all around him and destroy enemies.
- Mickey Mouse: Mickey calls on the help of his friends, including Goofy, Pluto, and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, to assist him in combat.
- Mulan: Mulan takes the Dragon Firework Cannon and fires it into the air. It comes down at a distance in front of her.
- Yoda: Yoda goes wild and bounces around from enemy to enemy, smashing them.
