Sonic the Hedgehog whilst invincible.
|Statistics and Overview|
Grants the player temporary invincibility.
Invincibility power ups can be found in Item boxes dotted throughout various levels. When obtained, the player is surrounded by a starry shield and the player becomes to immune to most hazards for a short period of time. Whilst invincible, the player cannot be damaged by enemies or hazards; however, the player is still vulnerable to being crushed, drowning, and bottomless pits. Whilst invincibility is in effect, the background music usually changes to a rendition of the game's main theme, or another theme exclusive to the power-up. Super Sonic and Hyper Sonic make Sonic invincible as well, with added abilities.
