The Magenta Rhythm (マゼンタ・リズム Mazenta rizumu?) is a transformation for potentially multiple users which appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is the Color Power gained by absorbing a Magenta Wisp and its Hyper-go-on, which turns the user into a musical note.


When using the Magenta Rhythm, the user turns into a large magenta-colored eighth note/quaver. In Sonic's case, his version of the Magenta Rhythm has his eyes and ears on the note head, though his eyes have lost their pupils and turned pale yellow, and his ears have lost their ear canals.

Game appearances

Sonic Lost World

The Magenta Rhythm made its first appearance in the Wii U/PC version of Sonic Lost World. In this game, it can first be used in Silent Forest Zone 2. In gameplay, transforming into the Magenta Rhythm allow the playable character to bounce in midair without limit, thus allowing them to move through mid-air in semi-flight. If the player stops bouncing however, the Magenta Rhythm will drop down. While moving around, the player can follow music notes, which will appear while the Magenta Rhythm is active, through the Zones. Also, for each bounce the Magenta Rhythm makes, the player earns one Ring.

To use the Magenta Rhythm in gameplay, the player must possess a Magenta Wisp. If the player is in an area not suited for the Magenta Rhythm however, the Magenta Wisp will go dormant (which is illustrated by its on-screen icon sleeping), thus preventing the player from becoming the Magenta Rhythm. Once transformed into the Magenta Rhythm, the player's Wisp Gauge starts to deplete, and once it runs out, the playable character will revert back to normal. To extend its duration, the player has to collect more Magenta Wisps.

When using the Magenta Rhythm in gameplay, the player has the following controls:

Wii U PC (keyboard) PC (Xbox 360 controller) PC (Xbox One controller)
Activate Magenta Rhythm Tap the Magenta Wisp icon in the top right corner of the GamePad screen.
Move/Bounce Tap the Touch Screen where you want to Jump

To use the Magenta Rhythm in gameplay, the player has to press PSXButton/A button/Switch b while in possession of a Magenta Wisp. When used, it generates a large number of musical notes in front of opponent racers' screens, blocking the view.
