The Pink Wisp is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a type of Wisp.


The Pink Wisps have sphere-shape bodies with three tentacles each, two of which are used as arms. They have one light blue eye in the center of their heads and five short spikes on top of each of their heads. As their name implies, their skin his is hot pink.



At some point in the past, the Pink Wisps, along with their other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Pink Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they would help out the residents of Sonic's world whenever they could.[1]

At some point after the Wisps settled on Sonic's world, a Pink Wisp was a member of the Diamond Cutters as Smithy the Lion's partner, until he, along with Claire Voyance and Slinger the Ocelot, died in a trap set by Mimic and Eggman. After the incident, the team's Wisps flocked to Whisper the Wolf, the Diamond Cutters' last survivor. This Pink Wisp would help out Whisper by powering her Variable Wispon under various circumstances.[2][3]

The Eggman War

During the war between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Pink Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield.[1]

Near the end of the Eggman War, Barricade Town, which served as a hub for Wispon distribution, was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result of the duo taking over, many Wisps, including several Pink Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

In Barricade Town, the Pink Wisps found salvation when Sonic and Knuckles arrived to stop Rough and Tumble. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the Pink Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated Pink Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons.[1]

The Fate of Dr. Eggman

During a trip to one of Dr. Eggman's bases, Whisper and her team of Wisps (the Pink Wisp included) encountered Sonic and Silver. Despite Whisper's initial mistrust, once her Pink Wisp and other Wisps openly greeted Sonic, Whisper chose to team up with the duo. When the newly-formed trio then took on a horde of Badniks, Whisper's Pink Wisp came to Whisper's defense when she was at the mercy of the robots. Fortunately, Sonic and Silver destroyed the Badniks before they could harm them.[3]

Battle For Angel Island

When Whisper joined the Resistance on a mission to liberate Angel Island from the Eggman Empire, her Pink Wisp and other Wisps came along with her. After accomplishing their mission, Whisper's Pink Wisp celebrated their victory with Whisper.[4][5][6]

Bonds of Friendship

After Whisper and Tangle got Jewel the Beetle and the stolen goods from the Mineral Museum back from the Babylon Rogues, Whisper's Pink Wisp would help clean up the museum and return all the stolen stones.[7]

Tangle & Whisper

The Wisps support Tangle in her quest for adventure, from Sonic the Hedgehog: Tangle & Whisper #1.

Another day at the Mineral Museum, while Whisper explained who Mimic was to Tangle and Jewel, Whisper's Pink Wisp watched the Green Wisp levitate minerals in the air. After the Cyan Wisp nearly made the Green Wisp drop them, the Pink Wisp helped catch the minerals. The Wisps soon gathered around Tangle to look at pictures of Mimic impersonating Sonic. When Tangle decided she should help Whisper catch him, the Wisps supported the lemur. After Whisper initially refused, the Wisps surrounded Tangle, eager for her to join them on the mission. Following this, Whisper agreed to let Tangle accompany her and the Wisps celebrated.[8]

Later, after Tangle and Whisper encountered Mimic, the Pink Wisp listened to Whisper as she told Tangle of her past. The Wisps soon convinced Whisper to allow Tangle to see what Mimic did to the team. Later, the Pink Wisp helped create a message to give to Mimic so that he would easily find and challenge them again. After the girls managed to defeat Mimic, the Pink Wisp joined them in going to Tails' workshop to have him imprison the shapeshifter.[2][9]

The Last Minute

In Spiral Hill Village, Whisper became hysterical upon learning from Sonic that Tangle got infected by the Metal Virus. Her Pink Wisp helped Amy and other Wisps drag the wolf back to the Rescue Shuttle when she tried to run back into the village. In the shuttle, the Wisps tried to comfort Whisper as she cried into Cream's lap.[10]

All or Nothing

The Pink Wisp accompanied Whisper and Silver to Orchardville. It and the other Wisps (aside from the Cyan Wisp) held up prisms for Whisper to fire her laser at so that it could bounce off them and hit Zor. After collecting Zor's Chaos Emerald, Silver, Whisper and the Wisps returned to Angel Island. After Super Sonic and Super Silver reversed the effects of the Metal Virus on the world, the Zombots were cured. This included Tangle, who was soon happily swarmed by Whisper, Whisper's Pink Wisp and the other Wisps.[11][12]


Being Wisps, the Pink Wisps are peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending their time with others. They get especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom they will gladly help out whenever they need them.[1]

The Pink Wisps are not much for fighting. However, they are nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, they do not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when their friends need them.[1]

Powers and abilities

The Pink Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.[1]

The Pink Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy inside their own bodies. The Pink Wisps can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.
