The Blue Star II (ブルースターII Burūsutā II?) is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a Board Type Extreme Gear that was created by Robotnik Corp. and acquired by Tails for Sonic to use at the climax of the first World Grand Prix.


The Blue Star II was adquired by Tails prior to the finals in the EX World Grand Prix, when Sonic's original Extreme Gear was destroyed by a bomb Wave the Swallow had planted on it prior. When Dr. Eggman stole the Key to Babylon Garden and headed to Babylon Garden to claim its treasure, Team Sonic pursued the doctor.

When the doctor was located, Sonic was about to follow him on foot when he was given the Blue Star II by Tails, saying that he had prepared it in case something like this happened. Thanking Tails for the new Extreme Gear, Sonic used it to pursue Eggman. As the same time, Sonic met Jet the Hawk, who was after the doctor as well. Seeing this as a rematch for the finals, Sonic engaged Jet in a race to the doctor with the Blue Star II, and eventually claimed victory.


The Blue Star II was built by Miles "Tails" Prower (though according to its profile, it was produced by Robotnik Corp.). It is especially made for the Speed Type. It is unlocked in the game after Sonic defeats Jet the Hawk at Babylon Garden in the Heroes Story in Story Mode.

As an upgraded version of the original Blue Star, the Blue Star II strongly resembles the latter. Like the Blue Star, the Blue Star II resembles a blue board with a recess on the front, a yellow stripe ringing around it and a grey foot panel with striations on top. However, the Blue Star II has a sleeker and longer shape than the Blue Star, with double exhaust ports on the rear, the yellow stripe running more along the outer edges and has white highlights alongside its foot panel.

Abilities and traits

As a Board-type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders, the Blue Star II is well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics, an average rate of fuel-consumption and is suited for general riding.

Like most other character exclusive Extreme Gear, the Blue Star does not possess any unique abilities. In comparison to the Blue Star, the Blue Star II focuses more on speed, but lacks greater movement control.
