Appearances in other media
Yellow, white, red
Flicky's Super State is a transformation that appears in . It is the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles Super State of Flickies, achieved through Super Tails with the power of the Super Emeralds. In gameplay, they will come to Super Tails' aid when he transforms to attack nearby targets.
When assuming their Super States, the Flickies blue plumage turns golden yellow and pulses, though they retain the red markings on their cheeks.
Powers and abilities
Due to being infused with at least the seven
Chaos Emeralds' power, the Flickes accordingly command ultimate power and have access to unlimited energy.  In their Super State, the Flickies' innate abilities far surpasses their normal ones, making them strong enough to smash  Badniks with a single strike. In addition to retaining their flight capabilities, the Flickies also gain virtual invulnerability.
The Flickies' transformation is directly connected to Tails', meaning the Flickies will only remain in their Super State for as long as Tails can.
In gameplay, four Flickies in their Super State will surround
Super Tails whenever he transforms. While present, these "Super Flickies" will instantly and automatically attack any enemy that comes in the near vicinity of Super Tails, be they normal Badniks or even bosses. Upon impacting the target, they will deal one hit worth of damage which will instantly destroy Badniks and even Hyudoros, the latter which is otherwise indestructible. This mechanic is similar to the Chao Attack, except it happens automatically. Once Super Tails' transformation ends, the Flickies will revert back to normal as well and fly away.

The Flickies' Super State in the
comic series and its spin-offs published by Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics, the Flickies' Super State appeared in as constructs made up by Sonic the Hedgehog #66 Hyper Tails. They were used to combat Ugly Naugus, but were ultimately frozen solid by the villain.
As Flickies share the same color palette as Sonic in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, and Sonic & Knuckles, Flickies will appear in this form when Sonic is in his Super Form. The same effect occurs with the red Flickies whilst playing as Knuckles.
