Crystal Omega[1] is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a reformed state of E-123 Omega, created by the Walter Naugus's crystalmancy.


Though having the same body structure as E-123 Omega's normal form, Crystal Omega has light blue crystals sprouting out on his head, torso, arms, and legs.


Shattered World Crisis

Act Two

Omega transformed into Crystal Omega, from Sonic Universe #87.

While at Westside Island, Team Dark, Knuckles the Echidna, and Amy Rose traveled to Hidden Palace Zone searched for Eclipse the Darkling and Master Emerald shards, respectively. However, while the five split up, Omega was attacked by Walter Naugus, who used crystalmancy on the war machine.[2] Omega, now transformed into Crystal Omega, was sent by Naugus to eliminate the outsiders while he retrieved the remaining Master Emerald shards from Knuckles. Crystal Omega first ambushed Amy, Rouge the Bat and eventually Shadow the Hedgehog, in which the latter used a Chaos Spear to slow down Crystal Omega. Once the three reunited with Knuckles, the four heroes were ambushed once again by Crystal Omega.[3]

E-123 Omega freed from his crystal form, from Sonic Universe #89.

After a long battle, the heroes managed to make a crack in Crystal Omega's armor which they used to shatter the crystals possessing him, freeing Omega from Walter's magic.[4]

Powers and abilities

Crystal Omega possesses many of the same abilities and strengths as his regular form does.[3] Additionally, his crystal armor can redirect energy-based attacks like the Chaos Spear into Omega himself. This does not only makes Omega stronger, but it also lets him gradually built up resistance to such attacks.[4]
