This vehicular extension for Metal Sonic uses a database containing racing algorithms from Sonic and his crew.

— Description, Sonic Free Riders[1]

The Metal Star (メタルスター Metarusutā?) is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a Board-type Extreme Gear that is Metal Sonic's personal choice and default Extreme Gear.



The Metal Star bears a strong resemblance to the Blue Star depicted in Sonic Free Riders, but with the white parts being replaced by a metallic color in reference to its name. While having board-like dimensions, the Metal Star has a rather straight shape, with white accent sections along the edge, and yellow lights on the sides of the front. It also has two white circles on the top surface, with black stripes between them and a red stripe in the front of the circles' outward borders.

Features and traits[]

According to its profile, the Metal Star acts as an extension of Metal Sonic, making the Metal Star a part of Metal Sonic's own functions. It uses a database containing the racing algorithms from various Extreme Gear riders in the World Grand Prix presented Sonic Free Riders, such as Team Heroes, Team Rose, Team Dark and Team Babylon to name a few, allowing Metal Sonic to copy the racing skills of others and use them as his own.

Game appearances[]

Sonic Free Riders[]

The Metal Star makes its first appearance in Sonic Free Riders, where it is well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics, and is suited for general riding. Like most other character exclusive Extreme Gear, the Metal Star possesses no unique abilities of its own, but it can be equipped with two Gear Parts. It is unlocked, alongside Metal Sonic, by completing the Final Race in the World Grand Prix campaign. It is only usable to Metal Sonic in normal races, but is usable to all characters (except Dr. Eggman and Vector) in Relay Race.

SSS Metal Star

The Metal Star, from Sonic Speed Simulator.

In Sonic Speed Simulator, the Metal Star appears as an unlockable Extreme Gear earned during the "Metal City Event (Legacy)" for reaching the goal of Metal City Race in under 50 seconds. Later it was made available during the "Metal Madness Event (Reborn)" for collecting 2,000 Mysterious Orbs. Once unlocked, the Metal Star and it's variants can be used by any character, and essentially functions similarly to all other Extreme Gears in the game. The Metal Star also has an in-game rarity of "Epic".


A variant of the called the Chrome Star was made available as the fourth prize of the "Holo Metal Sonic Event" for spending 15 minutes airborne. The Chrome Star also has an in-game rarity of "Legendary".

A major variant called the Neo Metal Star was made available as the 5th prize of the "Metal Overlord Event" for collecting 5,000 rings in the Neo Metal Sonic Boss Fight


  • The Metal Star's name and color scheme is derived from Sonic's Blue Star, presumably as an allusion to Metal Sonic's status as a duplicate of Sonic.
