Power-Ups are items in the game that either increases a certain ability or gives the character a special ability. There are 4 main power-ups in the game, which are the 2X Multiplier, Coin Magnet, Jetpack and the Super Sneakers. Certain missions that require the player to use 3 or more power-ups also count the hoverboard as one of them. Each power-up has a certain function, and can be used during gameplay. Some of them can also be upgraded to increase their usage time limit, but will need coins.
The four main power-ups (Coin Magnet, Jetpack, Super Sneaker and 2X Multiplier) can be upgraded on a scale of 6. Each upgrade increases their duration on the game by 5 seconds. The maximum duration of a power-up in the game is 30 seconds. The power jumper counts towards a fifth power up in missions.
As the game progresses, more and more power-ups are added into the game. The following list lists out the power-ups currently available and the ones already removed from the game.
