Also, on the back of their heads, they have a short note stem with a flag attached on top.

Game appearances

Sonic Lost World

The Magenta Wisps made their first appearance on the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World. In gameplay, the Magenta Wisps appear as Item Box power-ups that enable the Magenta Rhythm. The player encounters the Magenta Wisps in Silent Forest and Sky Road.

Team Sonic Racing

In Team Sonic Racing, the Magenta Wisps appear as Item Box powerups on the game's race tracks. They are exclusively picked up by Technique-Type racers, but can be transferred to other character types via Item Box Transfer. In gameplay, the Magenta Wisp power-ups allow the user to obscure rival racers' viewpoint with musical notes from the Magenta Rhythm.

In the comic tie-in, after intruding on a race between Team Sonic and Team Dark, Dr. Eggman would use a Magenta Wisp's power to attack Sonic and Shadow, and maintain his lead position in the race.[1]

Powers and abilities

The Magenta Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.

The Magenta 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.

The magenta Wisps are 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 Magenta Rhythm which enables midair bouncing. Alternatively, the Magenta Wisps are able to manifest the Magenta Rhythm's power themselves without phasing into a recipient.
