For the Sonic Rush Adventure object, see Red Material.

Red Materials are collectible objects that appear in the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World. It is a type of Material from the Lost Hex which is used for construction.


Red Materials are red lumps in the form of an orb-shaped crater with a yellow glow within its core, much like lava. Despite the substance's apparent consistency, it is very versatile in building a number of devices.


In gameplay, the Red Materials are used in conjunction with other Materials to create RC Vehicles. The player can earn Red Materials by clearing Lava Mountain's Zones. The Rank the player gets from clearing the Zones determines the amount of Red Materials earned:

Rank Red Materials earned
S 15
A 10
B 7
C 5
D 3

As an alternative to collecting Red Materials, the player can combine other Materials in Tails' Lab to create Red Materials. To create one Red Material, the player needs at least three Black Materials.
