The Green 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 appearance of the Green Wisps resembles a spaceship. They have round bodies with a small fin on top of their heads and one blue eye in the middle of their heads. Unlike most other Wisps, which have three tentacles, the Green Wisps have three sphere-like structures stemming from the bottom of their bodies.

Characteristics and culture

Being Wisps, the Green 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 Green 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]

Powers and abilities

The Green Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.[1] They can also levitate objects.[2]

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



At some point in the past, the Green 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 Green 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 Green Wisp was a member of the Diamond Cutters as Claire Voyance's partner, until she, along with Smithy the Lion and Slinger the Ocelot, 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 Green Wisp would help out Whisper by powering her Variable Wispon under various circumstances.[3][4]

The Eggman War

During the war between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Green 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 Green Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

In Barricade Town, the Green Wisps found salvation when Sonic and Knuckles arrived to stop Rough and Tumble. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the Green Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated Green 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 Green Wisp included) encountered Sonic and Silver. Despite Whisper's initial mistrust, once her Green 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 Green 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.[4]

Battle For Angel Island

When Whisper joined the Resistance on a mission to liberate Angel Island from the Eggman Empire, her Green Wisp and other Wisps came along with her and aided her in battle. After accomplishing their mission, Whisper's Green Wisp celebrated their victory with Whisper.[5][6][7]

Bonds of Friendship

When Jewel the Beetle and the exhibitions at the Mineral Museum got stolen by the Babylon Rogues, Whisper's Green Wisp helped Whisper and Tangle get Jewel and the stolen goods back by powering Whisper's Variable Wispon. Afterward, it helped clean up the museum and return all the stolen stones.[8]

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 Green Wisp levitated several minerals in the air. However, it nearly dropped them after the Cyan Wisp sped past it. Luckily, the Green, Pink and Cyan 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.[2]

Later, after Tangle and Whisper encountered Mimic, the Green Wisp listened to Whisper as she told Tangle of her past. The Wisps soon convinced Whisper to allow Tangle to see what Mimic did to the team. Later, the Green 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 Green Wisp joined them in going to Tails' workshop to have him imprison the shapeshifter.[3][9]

The Last Minute

In Spiral Hill Village, Whisper became hysterical upon learning from Sonic that Tangle got infected by the Metal Virus. Her Green 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

The Green Wisp accompanied Whisper and Silver to Orchardville. It and the other Wisps (aside from the Cyan Wisp) held up prisms for Whisper to fire her laser at so that it could bounce off them and hit Zor. After collecting Zor's Chaos Emerald, Silver, Whisper and the Wisps returned to Angel Island. 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 Green Wisp and the other Wisps.[11][12]

Bad Guys

Several Green Wisps were stationed in Everhold Prison to be used for the guards' Hover Wispons. However, many of them left their Hover Wispons after Zavok sabotaged them with his electromagnetic abilities during his and other the maximum security prisoners' breakout. Another Green Wisp immediately stopped powering its Hover Wispon after Mimic snatched it from one of the guards and used it against the guard.[13]

Zeti Hunt

A Green Wisp would power a Hover Wispon used by one of the soldiers of the Restoration. However, the Green Wisp was released in a daze when Zavok defeated the soldier and crushed the Hover Wispon.[14]

While Whisper's Green Wisp accompanied Whisper to Restoration HQ, it would learn that Belle had been kidnapped by Dr. Starline.[15]

Trial by Fire

It was later with some reluctance that Whisper's Green 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 Green Wisp and its friends to stay.[16]
