— Description of the Pink Wisp, Sonic Colors[1]

The Pink Wisp (ピンクウィスプ Pinku Wisupu?) is a type of Wisp which first appeared in Sonic Colors. They grant the Pink Spikes Color Power.


The Pink Wisps have an appearance similar to the White Wisp, except instead of having two antennae on their head, they have five short spikes on their head. Also, these wisps' eyes are almost always seen narrowed, creating a tough appearance, even though they are kind in nature.

Game appearances

Sonic Colors

The Pink Wisps made their first appearance on both versions of Sonic Colors, though they only appear during cutscenes on the Nintendo DS version. When their homeworld was moved to Earth by Dr. Eggman in order to create his interstellar amusement park, the Pink Wisps and the rest of their race were threatened to be enslaved by Eggman, who wanted their Hyper-go-on to control the minds of everyone on Earth using a weapon. Fortunately, the Pink Wisps and the rest of their race were all freed thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog. After Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park imploded into a black hole, the Pink Wisps worked together with the rest of their race in stopping the black hole and succeeded, before returning with their homeworlds to their original place in the universe.

The Pink Wisps appear in Tropical Resort, Sweet Mountain, Starlight Carnival, Planet Wisp and Asteroid Coaster on the Wii version of the game.

Sonic Generations

The Pink Wisps reappeared in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, where they only appear on Planet Wisp Act 1. They also made cameos in the ending credits of both the console/PC version and the Nintendo 3DS version.

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

The Pink Wisps made an appearance in the Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games during the Dream Event, Sonic's Figure Skating Spectacular. Here, a Pink Wisp is one of the Wisps that the four participating characters free from a Wisp Capsule as the player(s) proceed down the event's course. When the player then has to defeat the Rotatatron, the Pink Wisp appears and joins the other Wisps that were freed during the event and later the four characters in perform the Final Color Blaster, which deals the final blow on the Rotatatron.


Pink Wisps can be somewhat harsh towards others, but they are actually very kind by nature. They prefer to be near walls.[1]

Powers and abilities

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

The Pink 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, through they have been shown being able to use it to revert Nega-Wisps back to normal, teleport objects and even restrain black holes made from Hyper-go-on.

The Pink 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 Pink Spikes which possesses sharp spikes for both combat and wall climbing.
