The Cyan Wisp is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a breed of Wisp.



The Cyan Wisps have two permanently narrowed orange eyes. They possess three tentacles stemming from their heads, one of which is shaped like a lightning bolt. They also have a spike-shaped structure pointed backwards, sticking out from their heads.

Characteristics and culture

Being Wisps, the Cyan Wisps are peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending their time with others. They get especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom they will gladly help out whenever they need them.[1]

The Cyan Wisps are not much for fighting. However, they are nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, they do not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when their friends need them.[1]

Whisper's Cyan Wisp is known to not particularly enjoy taking photographs as it is quite shy.[2]

Powers and abilities

The Cyan Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.[1]

The Cyan Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy inside their own bodies. The Cyan Wisps can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.



At some point in the past, the Cyan Wisps, along with their other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Cyan Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they would help out the residents of Sonic's world whenever they could.[1]

At some point after the Wisps settled on Sonic's world, a Cyan Wisp was a member of the Diamond Cutters as Slinger the Ocelot's partner, until he, along with Smithy the Lion and Claire Voyance, died in a trap set by Mimic and Eggman. After the incident, the team's Wisps flocked to Whisper the Wolf, the Diamond Cutters' last survivor. This Cyan Wisp would help out Whisper by powering her Variable Wispon under various circumstances.[2][3]

The Eggman War

During the war between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Cyan Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield.[1]

Near the end of the Eggman War, Barricade Town, which served as a hub for Wispon distribution, was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result of the duo taking over, many Wisps, including several Cyan Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

In Barricade Town, the Cyan Wisps were liberated from Rough and Tumble when Sonic and Knuckles arrived and stopped the two mercenaries. Afterward, the Cyan Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons.[1]

The Fate of Dr. Eggman

During a trip to one of Dr. Eggman's bases, Whisper and her team of Wisps (the Cyan Wisp included) encountered Sonic and Silver. Despite Whisper's initial mistrust, once her Cyan Wisp and other Wisps openly greeted Sonic, Whisper chose to team up with the duo. When the newly-formed trio then took on a horde of Badniks, Whisper's Cyan Wisp came to Whisper's defense when she was at the mercy of the robots. Fortunately, Sonic and Silver destroyed the Badniks before they could harm them.[3]

Battle For Angel Island

When Whisper joined the Resistance on a mission to liberate Angel Island from the Eggman Empire, her Cyan Wisp and other Wisps came along with her and aided her in battle. After accomplishing their mission, Whisper's Cyan Wisp celebrated their victory with Whisper.[4][5][6]

Bonds of Friendship

After Whisper and Tangle got Jewel the Beetle and the stolen goods from the Mineral Museum back from the Babylon Rogues, Whisper's Cyan Wisp would help clean up the museum and return all the stolen stones.[7]

Tangle & Whisper

The Wisps support Tangle in her quest for adventure, from Sonic the Hedgehog: Tangle & Whisper #1.

Another day at the Mineral Museum, while Whisper explained who Mimic was to Tangle and Jewel, Whisper's Cyan Wisp was speeding around the museum. It sped past the Green Wisp, nearly making it drop several minerals. Luckily, the Cyan, Pink and Green Wisps managed to catch them. The Wisps soon gathered around Tangle to look at pictures of Mimic impersonating Sonic. When Tangle decided she should help Whisper catch him, the Wisps supported the lemur. After Whisper initially refused, the Wisps surrounded Tangle, eager for her to join them on the mission. Following this, Whisper agreed to let Tangle accompany her and the Wisps celebrated.[8]

Later, after Tangle and Whisper encountered Mimic, the Cyan Wisp listened to Whisper as she told Tangle of her past. Tangle learned the mask could translate the Wisps' language when, while wearing it, she was shocked and amazed to hear the Cyan Wisp proudly speak of how well the Diamond Cutters worked together. The Wisps soon convinced Whisper to allow Tangle to see what Mimic did to the team. Later, the Cyan Wisp helped create a message to give to Mimic so that he would easily find and challenge them again. After the girls managed to defeat Mimic, the Cyan Wisp joined them in going to Tails' workshop to have him imprison the shapeshifter.[2][9]

The Last Minute

In Spiral Hill Village, Whisper became hysterical upon learning from Sonic that Tangle got infected by the Metal Virus. Her Cyan Wisp helped Amy and other Wisps drag the wolf back to the Rescue Shuttle when she tried to run back into the village. In the shuttle, the Wisps tried to comfort Whisper as she cried into Cream's lap.[10]

All or Nothing

After Super Sonic and Super Silver reversed the effects of the Metal Virus on the world, the Zombots were cured. This included Tangle, who was soon happily swarmed by Whisper, Whisper's Cyan Wisp and the other Wisps.[11]

Zeti Hunt!

While Whisper's Cyan Wisp accompanied Whisper to Restoration HQ, it would assist Whisper when she fought the intruding Deadly Six, namely by powering Whisper's Variable Wispon so she could shoot Zomom and Zeena. However, Zavok eventually used his powers to short out the Variable Wispon, causing the Cyan Wisp to be released from it in a daze. After the fight, the Cyan Wisp found out that Belle had been kidnapped by Dr. Starline.[12]

Trial by Fire

It was later with some reluctance that Whisper's Cyan Wisp joined Whisper when she departed from Restoration HQ in order to keep her friends out of harms way after learning that Mimic was free. Although Tangle caught them departing, she was unable to convince the Cyan Wisp and its friends to stay.[13]
