Appearances in other media
Violet Wisp ( is a creature that appears in the バイオレットウィスプ Baioretto Wisupu ) ? . It is a type of Sonic the Hedgehog series Nega-Wisp that grants the Violet Void Color Power.
Being a Nega-Wisp, the Violet Wisps have a more menacing look than other Wisps. Their heads are round with five curved-back tentacles around them, making them look like swirls. They lack eyes, unlike normal Wisps, and instead have a serrated mouth that look like a menacing grin. They also have three wide tentacles that stem from their heads and end in jagged points.
The Violet Wisps appear on both versions of
, though they only appear during cutscenes on the Sonic Colors Wii. The Violet Wisps were originally normal Wisps, until they were captured by Dr. Eggman during Sonic Colors and syphoned dry of their Hyper-go-on in an attempt on the doctor's behalf to take over Earth with a Mind Control Ray. This process, however, mutated these unfortunate Wisps into the corrupted Violet Wisps, who were forced to carry out Eggman's evil plans. Near the end of Sonic Colors, however, all of the Violet Wisps were returned to normal by the remainder of the Wisp race with their own Hyper-go-on, who had been freed by Sonic the Hedgehog.
In gameplay on the
Nintendo DS version of the game, the Violet Wisps appear as Wisp Capsule power-ups that enable the Violet Void. The player encounters the Violet Wisps in Sweet Mountain and Asteroid Coaster.
, the Violet Wisps returned as Sonic Forces Wisp Capsule power-ups for the Avatar's Void Wispon, which is the only Wispon that will accept them. With the Violet Wisp, the Void Wispon is able to perform its special action for a limited time. The player encounters the Violet Wisps in Spaceport, Prison Hall, Capital City, Guardian Rock, Null Space and Imperial Tower.
Team Sonic Racing
, the Violet Wisps appear as Team Sonic Racing Item Box power-ups on the game's race tracks.
Unlike normal Wisps, who have playful personalities, the Violet Wisps are rather violent. Because of their mutation, the Violet Wisps' mindset is that of a wild and feral animal, and they will threaten others by biting and barking if approached.
While the Violet Wisps are not fighters, they are nonetheless brave and very helpful towards their friends and allies.
Powers and abilities
The Violet Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.
The Violet 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. However, due to their mutation, the Violet Wisps' Hyper-go-on has been corrupted, resulting in a darker and negative version of their Hyper-go-on. It is unclear to what extent they can use their own Hyper-go-on.
The Violet Wisps are able to pass on a fraction of their Hyper-go by phasing into the recipient. When organic beings or robots receive their Hyper-go-on, they can transform into the
Violet Void which can suck objects into oblivion.
In other media
comic series published by Sonic the Hedgehog IDW Publishing, the Violet Wisps are aliens from Planet Wisp. Much like in the games, some of them have settled down on Sonic's world where they help out the planet's inhabitants from time to time.
