, though they only appear during cutscenes on the Sonic Colors Nintendo DS version. When their homeworld was moved to Earth by Dr. Eggman in order to create his interstellar amusement park, the Pink Wisps and the rest of their race were threatened to be enslaved by Eggman, who wanted their Hyper-go-on to control the minds of everyone on Earth using a weapon. Fortunately, the Pink Wisps and the rest of their race were all freed thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog. After Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park imploded into a black hole, the Pink Wisps worked together with the rest of their race to stop the black hole and succeeded, before returning their homeworlds to their original places in the universe.

comic tie-in, during one of the early races in Dodon Pa's Grand Prix, a Pink Wisp was used by Vector as a part of a collaboration attack on Dr. Eggman, who had intruded on Team Sonic and Team Dark's race.
Being Wisps, the Pink Wisps are halcyon and social. Overall, they are peaceful, playful, non-hostile and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending most of their time playing with others. While they are not fighters, they are nonetheless brave and very helpful towards their friends and allies.
Pink Wisps can be somewhat harsh towards others, but they are actually very kind by nature. They prefer to be near walls.
Powers and abilities
The Pink Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.
The Pink 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 revert Nega-Wisps back to normal, teleport objects and even restrain black holes made from Hyper-go-on.
The Pink 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
Pink Spikes which possesses sharp spikes for both combat and wall climbing. Alternatively, the Pink Wisps are able to manifest the Pink Spikes form themselves without phasing into a recipient.
