Void (ヴォイド Voido?) is the main antagonist of Sonic Shuffle. He is half of Maginaryworld's ruler, Illumina, and represents the negative feelings which give people the ability to dream. Following his creation, Void sought the Precioustone to become whole, nearly dooming Maginaryworld in the process, but was stopped and rejoined with his other half, Lumina Flowlight, thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends.

History

Void came into existence when Illumina lost sight of herself and her dream which caused an internal turmoil that split her in two beings: Void, the representation of the negative aspects of dreams, and Lumina Flowlight, the representation of the positive aspects. Because of his separation though, Void suffered from loneliness and he wanted to be whole again.[1] Reasoning that since he was a piece of the Precioustone, thus a part of a feeling needed for dreams to exist, Void sought out this crystal, believing it could make him whole.[2][3] When he got to the Temple of Light and touched the Perfect Precioustone, however, his powers caused it to shatter and its pieces scattered to the various worlds in Maginaryworld.

After the Precioustone's destruction, Void moved onto the rest of Maginaryworld, his powers transforming the different dream worlds within it. Void then began tracking down the Precioustones, hoping that they could still make him whole. However, he met opposition from Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy who had been brought to Maginaryworld by Lumina to help her recover the Precioustones and restore the Perfect Precioustone. Each time, Void beat Sonic and his friends to the Precioustones, but when he touched them, they would shatter further, forcing him to leave. Whenever Sonic and his friends recovered a Precioustone, Void appeared in a vision before them with Lumina where he expressed his depression and loneliness to them.

As the Precioustone neared its completion in the Temple of Light, Void decided to head there to seek out the crystal again. Inside the temple, he was confronted by Lumina, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy, and he told them how he wanted to be whole again with the help of the Precioustone, but was continuously rejected. Seeing that the group did not need him either, Void's loneliness and sadness reached their peak and he turned into a rampaging monster.

Lumina and Void

In the ensuring fight, Void was defeated by Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy, and was turned into a gem, where he continue to lament of how both Illumina and Lumina refused him. However, Sonic and his friends got Lumina to accept Void after convincing her that the negative emotions he represented were needed alongside positive emotions to give people the ability to dream. Void's gem was then taken into the reformed Precioustone by Lumina where he returned to normal. There, he accepted Lumina's offer of acceptance and the two of them rejoined to remake Illumina.

Personality

Void is a unique villain among the rogues in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, as his motivation is to fill out his own emptiness and not by a lust for power, control, revenge or destruction. On the front, Void is a boy with a far away look in his eyes and he shows no emotion at all.[4] Beneath it however, Void constantly felt incredibly lonely because of his separation, which kept him in a state of sadness and depression. To escape his pain, Void's only wish was to make himself whole again and be friends with Lumina.[5] However, since everything kept rejecting him because of his nature, Void's sadness kept deepening to the point where he would question his own reason for existing. At times he speaks as if talking to himself and expresses his deep feelings, which have a sense of sadness to them.[4]

Because he embodies negative feelings, Void is naturally destructive towards dreams and causes mayhem wherever he goes. However, he does not intent to be evil and only commits such acts because it is his nature, which is to make people's dreams stronger from despair, and he knows nothing else beyond it. As such, he does not view his actions as malicious and denies causing any misfortune. Likewise, he cannot comprehend why people shows dislike of him for his action which made him slightly loath others, thinking they were needlessly tormenting and betraying him.[6]

Powers and Abilities

Void commands the powers of darkness which gives him an unspecified level of dark powers.[7] His darkness alone can warp the fabric of Maginaryworld, transforming and corrupting its various worlds into radically different environments that are slowly destroying them and Maginaryworld.[8] His touch has similar corruptive properties as the Perfect Precioustone and its fragments would be draped in darkness and shatter whenever he touched them, though this indicates he has little to no control over this ability. He is also capable of flight through midair and can teleport at will.

Transformation

Void's monstrous form.

When his sadness is at its peak, Void is able to transform into a monster completely different from his original form. In this form, Void has displayed physical attributes on a superhuman level such as enough durability to withstand giant boulders falling down on him, and super strength on such a level that he can create shockwaves by hammering into the ground. He is also able in this form to project energy, either firing wide energy blasts from his abdomen or concentrated dark lasers from his arms.
