The Jeweled Scepter (宝玉の杖 Hougyoku no Tsue?, lit. "Cane of Jewels") is an object that appears in Sonic Rush Adventure. It is a mystical artifact from Blaze's world which has been guarded by Blaze's family for generations. It is the key to unleashing the Power of the Stars, the force that ensures the existence of parallel worlds, and can control the geological activity of Blaze's home world.
The Jeweled Scepter was stolen by Captain Whisker and Mini & Mum during the events of Sonic Rush Adventure and Blaze tried to get it back with the help of Sonic, Tails and Marine. After chasing the pirates to several islands, they cornered them and defeated their ultimate weapon, the Ghost Titan and obliterated the island the pirates and the scepter was on. Blaze, Sonic and Tails were depressed about not reclaiming the Jeweled Scepter because they thought it sunk to the bottom of the ocean, until Marine revealed that she grabbed the scepter while Captain Whisker wasn't looking.
After collecting the seven Chaos Emeralds and Sol Emeralds, Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega stole the Jeweled Scepter from the royal treasury and revealed that they made the pirates and wanted to use the scepter to unlock the Power of the Stars so they could turn both the Chaos and Sol Dimensions into their own personal realms. The Jeweled Scepter was then used by the Egg Wizard which was confronted by Super Sonic and Burning Blaze. After the Eggmen were on the verge of defeat, Nega attempted to use the scepter's power to destroy the world. However Marine interfered, giving Super Sonic and Burning Blaze the chance to destroy the Egg Wizard and reclaim the Jeweled Scepter. It was later returned to its altar by Blaze and was placed under heavy guard to prevent it from being stolen again.
