The Gray Wisp (グレイウィスプ Gurei Wisupu?) is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a type of Wisp that grants the Gray Quake Color Power.


The Gray Wisps' overall appearance resembles that of a rock. Their bodies are in the shape of a boulder and a tetradecahedron, looking similar to a rough rock. They also have three regular octahedron-shaped tentacles stemming from under their bodies, and have three pink eyes arranged in a triangle.

Powers and abilities

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

Like all Wisps, the Gray 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 doubles as their life source. It is unclear to what extent they can use their own Hyper-go-on.

The Gray 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 Gray Quake which can cause powerful shockwaves and climb walls.
