Power Glyphs (or simply Glyphs) are objects that appear in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. They are a set of nine powerful relics, possibly from the Ancients, which can be collected in the game and equipped to the playable characters to improve their abilities.
The Power Glyphs resemble ancient stone tablets, each with their own unique coloration and glowing patterns engraved on them.
In gameplay, the player can equip a Power Glyph to a playable characters in the menu at any time to grant them a special power. This includes improving the damaging power for certain attacks, increasing or granting additional rewards, and more. The player only receives one of each Power Glyph, but each can be equipped to multiple characters.
To obtain Power Glyphs, the player must complete the side-quest given by the NPCs in the game (except for Foreman Fred's which is obligatory). The player will then be given a Power Glyph of their choice. Characters with Power Glyphs include:
- Foreman Fred
- Chef Woody
- Doc Ginger
- Old Tucker
- Salty and Pepper (Bygone Island)
- Fastidious Beaver
