The Jade Ghost (ジェイド・ゴースト Jeido gōsuto?) is a transformation for potentially multiple users which appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is the Color Power gained by absorbing a Jade Wisp and its Hyper-go-on, which turns the user into a ghost-like entity.


The exact form the user assumes when transforming into the Jade Ghost is unknown, as the users of this Color Power has only been using it indirectly. However, those that harness the power of the Jade Ghost become invisible and will emit a greenish aura.


In Team Sonic Racing, the Jade Ghost makes an appearance as a product of the Jade Wisp Item Box power-ups that can be obtained on the race tracks. In this game, rather than transforming the playable character when using the Jade Ghost, the game manifests the Jade Ghost's power instead.

To use the Jade Ghost in gameplay, the player has to press PSXButton.png/A button.png/Switch b.png while in possession of a Jade Wisp. Once activated, the playable character will become invisible to their enemies, but their teammates will still be able to see them. It also causes the user to become semi-intangible and start hovering slightly above ground. As a result, it negates the effects of rough terrain and stage hazards for the playable character, enabling them to cut corners or take shortcuts usually only available to Technique and Power-Types respectively. It even allows the user to drive through other racers and be unaffected by offensive Color Powers. However, the user will be unable to pick up Item Boxes or Rings. Additionally when the effect ends, the Jade Ghost will steal a Wisp from a nearby racer.[1]

Powers and abilities

As the Jade Ghost, the user is able to turn themselves invisible, which enables them to move around without being visibly detected by opponents. The Jade Ghost also makes the user intangible, thus allowing them to pass through obstacles and avoid unwanted attacks. In addition, the Jade Ghost become able to hover slightly above ground when using this power. The Jade Ghost's only known weakness is that it can only be used for a few seconds and requires more Hyper-go-on from Jade Wisps to be maintained.


  • The Jade Ghost is currently the only Color Power not to have a physical form, as it has not appeared in a game where it can directly effect the user.
    • It is also the only Color Power without a music theme.
