The Drill Wispon is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a Wispon that is both themed after and utilizes the power of the Yellow Wisp.
Modeled after the Yellow Wisp, the Drill Wispon is a cone-shaped Wispon that is colored yellow with orange strips spiraling through. It also has a hole in the middle of the cone that resembles the Yellow Wisp's eye. The cone itself is attached to a black footing with yellow bars surrounding the gray grip that is attached to the back of the black footing. The grip itself allows the wielder to hold this Wispon in a comfortable position.
Features and abilities
The Drill Wispon's signature function is its ability to hold Yellow Wisps inside it and harness their energies to power itself. Without a Yellow Wisp inside it, the Drill Wispon is useless.
Being built to clear out crowds of robots, the Drill Wispons must possess a widespread attack range.
Just before the war between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire ended, there were two mercenaries named Rough the Skunk and Tumble the Skunk (who were armed with a Drill Wispon and Burst Wispon respectively) who saved Barricade Town, a town that distributed Drill Wispons, from Dr. Eggman's forces. Once they were let inside Barricade Town however, the mercenaries took over the town and stole all the town's Wispons for themselves, along with the Wisps needed to power them.
