The Blue Block[1] (青いブロック Aoi Burokku?) is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a type of platform that is associated with the Blue Cube and Cube Wispon.


The Blue Blocks resemble transparent blue cubes with rounded edges and corners. Averagely, they about two meters tall. They also sometimes have a blue Ring within each of them. In gameplay, they are completely solid, allowing the player to stand on them as if they were plaforms.

Game appearances

Sonic Colors

Sonic using the Blue Blocks as platforms, from the Wii version of Sonic Colors.

In the Wii version of Sonic Colors, and the remaster Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the Blue Blocks appear in the Areas where the Blue Wisps are present, namely Sweet Mountain, Starlight Carnival, Planet Wisp, Aquarium Park and Asteroid Coaster. In this game, they have a blue Ring inside each of them and are located in fixed positions.

In gameplay, the Blue Blocks are completely indestructible and serve either as plaforms for the player to walk on or blockades blocking the paths. Also, when using the Blue Cube, the player can turn all Blue Blocks on the screen into Blue Rings, which can be collected by the player, thus allowing the player to clear out Blue Blocks. Once the Blue Cube's Wisp Gauge runs out, however, the Blue Blocks will revert back to their original form. The Blue Blocks are also the only removable objects that cannot be destroyed by Super Sonic.

Sonic Forces

In Sonic Forces, the Blue Blocks only appear in the stages featuring the Avatar and the Tag Team mechanic. In this game, the Blue Blocks have no blue Ring inside them.

In gameplay, the Blue Blocks appear as byproducts of the Cube Wispon. When using the Cube Wispon's basic action near untouched enemies, the Cube Wispon will encase the enemies in Blue Blocks, freezing them in their place. In addition, these Blue Block-encased enemies can be destroyed, which in turn will release Blue Rings. When using the Cube Wispon's special action on the other hand, the player can create Blue Blocks on the ground or in midair that the player can use as plaforms. Unlike the Blue Blocks that encases enemies, these Blue Blocks are indestructible. However, once the player's Wisp Gauge runs out, the Blue Blocks created by the Cube Wispon will disappear.
