The Crimson Wisp is a creature that appears in the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World. It is a type of Wisp that grants the Crimson Eagle Color Power.


The Crimson Wisps are colored crimson with three wide spikes extending from the top of their head and have three orange eyes that form a triangular pattern on their face. They also have three thin tentacles stemming from the bottom of their head.


In gameplay on the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World, the Crimson Wisps appear as Item Box power-ups that enable the Crimson Eagle. The player encounters the Crimson Wisps in Desert Ruins, Silent Forest and Sky Road.

Powers and abilities

The Crimson Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.

The Crimson 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.

The Crimson Wisps are able to pass on a fraction of their Hyper-go-on to other beings by phasing into their body, which allows them to transform into the Crimson Eagle which enables them to fly.
