Jade Wisps have three tentacles that are wide near the middle and end in a jagged point. Resembling Nega-Wisps, they lack eyes and have a wide, sharp fanged-like mouth in the style of a jack-o-lantern.
The Jade Wisps made their first appearance in Team Sonic Racing, appearing as Item Box power-ups on the game's race tracks. In gameplay, the Jade Wisp power-ups temporarily turn the racer who is using it completely invisible to all other opponents.
The Jade Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.
The Jade Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy known as Hyper-go-on inside their own bodies, which is their life source. It is unclear to what extent they can use their own Hyper-go-on, through they have been shown being able to use it to turn invisible.
The Jade Wisps are presumably able to pass on a fraction of their Hyper-go by phasing into the recipient. When organic beings or robots receive their Hyper-go-on, they can transform into the Jade Ghost which possesses ghost-like abilities.
