— Description of the Blue Wisp, Sonic Colors
Blue Wisps have cube-shaped bodies with three yellow eyes that are aligned horizontally. They also have three short, rectangular triangle-shaped tentacles stemming from the bottom of their bodies.
The Blue Wisps made their first appearance on both versions of Sonic Colors, though they only appear during cutscenes on the Nintendo DS version. When their homeworld was moved to Earth by Dr. Eggman in order to create his interstellar amusement park, the Blue Wisps and the rest of their race were threatened to be enslaved by Eggman, who wanted their Hyper-go-on to control the minds of everyone on Earth using a weapon. Fortunately, the Blue Wisps and the rest of their race were all saved thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog. After Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park imploded into a black hole, the Blue Wisps worked together with the rest of their race to stop the black hole and succeeded, before returning their homeworlds to their original places in the universe.
In gameplay on the Wii version of the game, the Blue Wisps appear as Wisp Capsule power-ups that enable the Blue Cube. The player encounters the Blue Wisps in Sweet Mountain, Starlight Carnival, Planet Wisp, Aquarium Park and Asteroid Coaster.

Powers and abilities
The Blue Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.
The Blue Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy known as Hyper-go-on inside their own bodies, which is their life source. It is unclear to what extent they can use their own Hyper-go-on, though they have been shown being able to use it to revert Nega-Wisps back to normal, teleport objects and restrain black holes made of Hyper-go-on.
The Blue Wisps are able to pass on a fraction of their Hyper-go by phasing into the recipient. When organic beings or robots receive their Hyper-go-on, they can transform into the Blue Cube which can swap Blue Rings and Blue Blocks or release volatile vibrations.

- The Blue Wisps' high intelligence may allude to how the player must apply strategy when using the Blue Cube, as using the Blue Wisps' Color Power allows the player to create their own platforms and paths with Blue Blocks and Blue Rings. At the same time, using the Blue Wisps' Color Power recklessly could be troublesome for the player, such as the player falling through a platform of Blue Blocks turned into Blue Rings by accidently using the Blue Cube.
