The Purple Frenzy (パープル・フレンジー Pāpuru furenjī?), also known as the Frenzy form, is a transformation used by Sonic the Hedgehog in the Wii version of Sonic Colors. It is the Color Power Sonic gains when absorbing a Purple Wisp and its Hyper-go-on. While in this form, Sonic becomes a berserk chomper that eats anything in its way.


As the Purple Frenzy, Sonic's entire body turns into a large and longer version of his own head, which is arguably not much larger than Sonic's full height, that is covered entirely in a flowing purple and light purple skin. However, the version of Sonic's head that he turns into lacks many facial features, such as Sonic's muzzle, ear canals and nose. However, Sonic still retains his eyes, which have lost their pupils and have turned yellow, and his mouth, which has become serrated with sharp teeth and extends far behind his eyes.

On the back of the Purple Frenzy, Sonic's quills have as well become curved, with slightly split ends. The Purple Frenzy is also constantly giving off a dark and thick aura.

Powers and abilities

As the Purple Frenzy, Sonic gains a powerful jaw that allows him to chew through any armor possesses by Eggman's robots and other extremely durable objects that even Sonic cannot break normally, with just one bite. The Purple Frenzy is also able to consume any of the matter he bites off and add the consumed matter it to the Purple Frenzy's own mass, allowing Sonic to grow larger after each consumption, until he reaches the maximum size, which is about three-to-four times its original size.

The Purple also possesses a suction breath that is activated once the Purple Frenzy reaches maximum size This allows Sonic to suck any smaller objects not too heavy or rooted to the ground to Sonic, extending the radius of this form's consumption.

The Purple Frenzy's only known weakness is that this form can only be maintained for a few movements before Sonic will revert back to normal, and requires more Hyper-go-on from Purple Wisps to be maintained.


In the Wii version of Sonic Colors, the Purple Frenzy can first be used in Asteroid Coaster Act 1. The player can only use the Purple Frenzy while Sonic is in possession of a Purple Wisp. Transforming into the Purple Frenzy will cause the Wisp Gauge to start depleting, and once it runs out, Sonic will revert back to normal. After utilizing a Purple Frenzy transformation for a few moments, the player will be awarded with 8,000 Color Bonus points for each second where the Purple Frenzy is active.

In gameplay, the Purple Frenzy can instantly destroy all enemies and objects that cannot be destroyed  otherwise, such as reinforced craters and tubes, when coming into contact with the player. After consuming a few enemies/obstacles with the Purple Frenzy, the player will grow one size, and will do so again after consuming more objects. The Purple Frenzy can have up to three growth spurts before it reaches maximum size. However, the larger the Purple Frenzy gets, the slower the player's movements will be.

In 3D sections of the acts, the Purple Frenzy constantly shifts directions on its own instead of staying on a straight path, thus requiring constant realignment on the player's behalf.

While playing as the Purple Frenzy at its maximum size, the player will attract any nearby Rings to himself/herself, similar to the Lightning Shield.
