Blue Wisps have sharp minds and make excellent leaders. Whenever they decide to do something big, the Blue Wisps are almost always successful. Their powers allow Sonic to become indestructible as the Blue Cube for a short while.

— Description, Sonic Colors (Wii)[1]

The Blue Wisp (ブルーウィスプ Burū Wisupu?) is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a breed of Wisp that grants the Blue Cube Color Power.



Blue Wisps have cube-shaped bodies with three yellow eyes that are aligned horizontally. They also have three short, rectangular triangle-shaped tentacles stemming from the bottom of their bodies.

Characteristics and culture

Being Wisps, the Blue Wisps are halcyon, social, bright, energetic, and pure of heart.[2] They are likewise peaceful, playful, non-hostile and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending most of their time playing with others. Due to their overall good nature, they easily get along with everybody, except bad guys.[2] Also, rather than aliens, with their floaty movements, they are more like fairies.[2] Additionally, while they are not necessarily fighters, they are nonetheless brave and very helpful towards their friends and allies.

Powers and abilities

The Blue Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.

The Blue 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. It is unclear to what extent they can use their own Hyper-go-on, though they have been shown being able to use it to revert Nega-Wisps back to normal, teleport objects and restrain black holes made of Hyper-go-on.

The Blue 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 Blue Cube which can swap Blue Rings and Blue Blocks or release volatile vibrations. Alternatively, the Blue Wisps are able to manifest the Blue Cube form themselves without phasing into a recipient.

Game appearances

Sonic Colors

The Blue Wisps made their first appearance in the Wii version and Nintendo DS version of Sonic Colors, and later the remaster Sonic Colors: Ultimate, though they only appear during cutscenes on the Nintendo DS version. When their homeworld was moved to Earth by Dr. Eggman in order to create his interstellar amusement park, the Blue Wisps and the rest of their race were threatened to be enslaved by Eggman, who wanted their Hyper-go-on to control the minds of everyone on Earth using a weapon. Fortunately, the Blue Wisps and the rest of their race were all saved thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog. After Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park imploded into a black hole, the Blue Wisps worked together with the rest of their race to stop the black hole and succeeded, before returning their homeworlds to their original places in the universe.

In gameplay on the Wii version of the game and in Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the Blue Wisps appear as Wisp Capsule power-ups that enable the Blue Cube. The player encounters the Blue Wisps in Sweet Mountain, Starlight Carnival, Planet Wisp, Aquarium Park and Asteroid Coaster.

The Blue Wisps made an appearance in the Archie Comics' adaption of Sonic Colors, in Sonic the Hedgehog #219.

In the comics, some Blue Wisps and a few other Wisps were chased by Orbot, Cubot and a pack of Egg Pawns.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing, the Blue 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.


  • The Blue Wisps' high intelligence may allude to how the player must apply strategy when using the Blue Cube, as using the Blue Wisps' Color Power allows the player to create their own platforms and paths with Blue Blocks and Blue Rings. At the same time, using the Blue Wisps' Color Power recklessly could be troublesome for the player, such as the player falling through a platform of Blue Blocks turned into Blue Rings by accidently using the Blue Cube.
