The Purple Frenzy (パープル・フレンジー Pāpuru furenjī?), also known as the Frenzy form, is a transformation for potentially multiple users which appears in the Wii version of Sonic Colors. It a the Color Power gained by absorbing a Purple Wisp and its Hyper-go-on, which turns the user into a berserk chomper.

Appearance

When using the Purple Frenzy, the user turn turns into a flowing purple, demonic-looking chomper that constantly gives off a dark and thick aura. In Sonic's case, his entire body turns into a large and longer version of his own head, except his eyes have lost their pupils and turned yellow, his ears have lost their ear canals, and his muzzle and nose have been replaced by a serrated mouth with sharp teeth and extends far behind his eyes. His quills have also become more curved with slightly split ends.

Powers and abilities

As the Purple Frenzy, the user gains a powerful jaw that can chew through any robot armor and other durable obstacles that even Sonic cannot smash with a single bit. The Purple Frenzy can also consume any matter the user bites off and add it to their own mass, allowing the Purple Frenzy to grow larger for each bite until reaching maximum size (which is about three-to-four times the Purple Frenzy's original size). When reaching maximum size, the Purple Frenzy also gains a suction breath that let the user suck in smaller objects not too heavy or rooted to the ground.

The main weakness of the Purple Frenzy is that it can only be used for a few seconds and requires more Hyper-go-on from Purple Wisps to be maintained.

Gameplay

The Purple Frenzy can first be used in Asteroid Coaster Act 2. In gameplay, the player can only use the Purple Frenzy while in possession of a Purple Wisp. Transforming into the Purple Frenzy will cause the Wisp Gauge to start depleting, and once it runs out, the user will revert back to normal. To extend its duration, the player has to collect more Purple Wisps. After utilizing the Purple Frenzy for a few moments, the player will be awarded with 8,000 Color Bonus points for each second the Purple Frenzy is active.

If the player is in an area not suited for the Purple Frenzy, the Purple Wisp will go dormant (which is illustrated by its icon sleeping), thus preventing the player from becoming the Purple Frenzy.

In gameplay, the Purple Frenzy can instantly destroy any enemy and obstacle that cannot be destroyed otherwise, upon contact. For every unspecified set of targets consumed, the Purple Frenzy will grow one size, until it has had a total of three growth spurts. However, the larger the Purple Frenzy gets, the slower its movements will be. When the Purple Frenzy is at maximum size, the player will attract any nearby Rings, similar to the Lightning Shield.

In 3D sections of the acts, the Purple Frenzy constantly shifts directions on its own rather than staying on a straight path, and thus requiring constant realignment on the player's behalf. To use the Purple Frenzy in gameplay, the player has the following controls:
