For the breed of creatures, see Ghost (species).

Ghost is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an Extreme Gear Gear Part that can turn both the Extreme Gear and its rider invisible and removes them from the course map.


Ghost is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a light green-colored circle with a black stereotypical ghost sticking its tongue out, inscribed in it.


In the game, Ghost is permanently installed into only certain Extreme Gears. When used, Ghost makes the playable character and their Extreme Gear completely invisible to the opponents participating in the race. For the player using Ghost, however, their character only becomes transparent, allowing them to still perceive their character. Additionally, Ghost also makes the user's character icon disappear from the course map when activated, making it impossible for both the player and opponents to determine the user's location on it.

In gameplay, Ghost and its ability will be disabled when starting a new race. To activate Ghost, the player must press one of the following buttons after collecting a certain number of Rings:
