The Communicators[1] are objects that appear in the Sonic Boom franchise. They are smartwatches created by Tails with technology derived from the Ancients' Enerbeam devices[2] and are used by the majority of Team Sonic's members to stay in touch.

Description

Appearance

Each Communicator resembles a wristwatch and features its own unique design:

Image Owner Description
Sonic Communicator Sonic This Communicator is a gray triangle with round corners and a black wrist strap. Its touchpad is black and in the middle is the cyan outline of a triangle with an extra outline around each corner.
Tails Communicator Tails This Communicator is a golden circular bezel with a brown wrist strap. Small red and green wires can be seen on the side, and its touchpad is yellow.
Amy Communicator Amy This Communicator is a lightbulb-shaped golden pad with a white underside and a brown wrist strap. On the lower half are three dark pink buttons with a white circle on the top one, and on the upper half is a circular pink touchpad with a white frame and light purple semi-circles along the upper edges.
Knuckles Communicator Knuckles This Communicator is a dark gray square with a grey wrist strap. Its touchpad is a smaller red square with a gray frame, and on each side is a small red rectangular plate (with a small white square in the middle of the one directly behind the hand).

Features

The Communicators are capable of radio communication (equipped with alarms) between each other, allowing Team Sonic's members to stay in contact. Their communication range is very large, extending far into space, but their signals are vulnerable to magnetic interference.[3] They can as well connect to other communication devices, like Tails' headset and regular telephones.[4][5][6] Tails' Communicator in particular has demonstrated functions akin to those of a handheld computer.[7] Other functionalities include a clock,[8] sending text messages,[9] and generating Enerbeams.[10]

After absorbing the Fire and Ice energy from a fissure, the Communicator allowed their wearers to utilize Fire Mode and Ice Mode.[7]

History

Games

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

Communicators Rise of Lyric

Team Sonic with their Communicators.

In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Tails made the Communicators by replicating the Ancients' Enerbeam bracelets, but made them into things that were even more useful.[2] Shortly after Lyric the Last Ancient's defeat, Team Sonic would wear them during their celebration in the Village.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

PowerUpCommunicator

Sonic's Communicator infused with Fire energy.

In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, Team Sonic would utilize their Communicators during their mission to undo Dr. Eggman's environmental damage. Early on, Sonic and Amy's Communicators absorbed the Fire and Ice energy from a fissure, granting their wearers incredible powers. Tails later updated the Communicators so their whole team could tap into these powers too. Along the way, Tails would also keep tabs on his research findings using his own Communicator.

TV series

Team Sonic communicating

Team Sonic using their Communicators (excluding Sticks).

During their adventures, Team Sonic would use their Communicators for several purposes. This has included mission-related activities, everyday communication, timekeeping and casual daywear.[4][11][12][5][13][8][14][15][6][16][17][18][19]

One time, Sonic's Communicator got sabotaged by Eggman's Tomato Sauce cans who had infiltrated the Village.[1][9]

Archie Comics

Communicator Enerbeams

Knuckles and Amy using their Communicators for Enerbeams, from Sonic Boom #7.

Sonic would wear his Communicator, but never used it for much.[20] During the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix though, Knuckles and Amy used their Communicators to form an Enerbeam safety net for Sonic.[10]

Other game appearances

Enerbeam SD2

The Communicator on the Enerbeam powerup.

In Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, Sonic's Communicator is depicted on the item capsules for the Enerbeam powerup.

Trivia

  • Sticks does not own a Communicator because she does not trust technology.[21] Instead, she uses an old-fashion telephone.[6]
  • Unlike the other members on Team Sonic who wears their Communicator on their right wrists, Tails wears his on his left wrist.
  • Eggman's Wrist controller is simliar to the Communicators.
