The Psychic Wave (サイキックウェーブ Saikikkuu~ēbu?) is a Board type Extreme Gear that appears in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity and Sonic Free Riders. It is Silver the Hedgehog's personal Extreme Gear, and his default Extreme Gear. It is obtained in both games when unlocking Silver as a playable character.

Game appearances[]

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity[]

This mysterious gear is made of an unknown metal. Perhaps it came from the future along with Silver...

Description, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity[1]

Description[]

The Psychic Wave first appeared in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. According to its profile, the Psychic Wave is a mysterious piece of technology in itself and is made from an unknown metal. It is believed the Psychic Wave originates from Silver's future, and was brought with Silver when he arrived in the present day. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Silver, by completing the Babylon Rogues' Story in Story Mode. It is only useable to Silver in normal races but is usable to all characters (except Dr. Eggman) in Survival Relay.

In this game, the Psychic Wave is slightly broad and bulky in structure and has a wave-like shape, with a pronounced front resembling an arrow head, and what appears to be a double exhaust ports in the back. It is mostly colored indigo, with a white top surface, stripes and wings on the front's sides, and has a purple highlight and two grey circular foot panels on the top.

Abilities and traits[]

As a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the Psychic Wave is well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics and is suited for general riding. Like most other character-exclusive Extreme Gears, the Psychic Wave does not possess any unique abilities of its own.

Sonic Free Riders[]

Little is known about the material used to craft this gear. Perhaps Silver brought it with him from the future.

Description, Sonic Free Riders[2]

Description[]

The Psychic Wave made a return in Sonic Free Riders. According to its profile, little is known about what materials the Psychic Wave is made of, and it is believed to have been brought from the future to the present by Silver, much like in the previous title. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Silver, by completing Team Rose's and Team Dark's stories. It is only useable to Silver in normal races but is usable to all characters (except Dr. Eggman and Vector) in Relay Race.

In Sonic Free Riders, the Psychic Wave received a drastic redesign. In this game. it is almost perfectly rectangle-shaped board with rectangular white edges on the sides and the rear, while the front and top surface are black. It also has two circular panels on the tope surface, with three white markings surrounding them.

Abilities and traits[]

As a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Free Riders, the Psychic Wave is, like in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics and is suited for general riding.

Like in the previous title, the Psychic Wave possesses no unique abilities of its own, but it can be equipped with up to two Gear Parts.

Sonic Speed Simulator[]

In Sonic Speed Simulator, the Psychic Wave appears in its Sonic Free Riders design as an unlockable Extreme Gear earned during the first part of the "Super Sonic" event by completing 20 races to obtain the white Chaos Emerald. Once unlocked, the Psychic Wave can be used by any character, and essentially functions similarly to all other Extreme Gears in the game. The Psychic Wave also has an in-game rarity of "Legendary".

Trivia[]

  • The Psychic Wave's name may have been derived from Silver's psychic abilities and the gear's wave-like shape.
    • The Psychic Wave's ability to transform into an air ride gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity may be an allude to Silver's ability to fly with the use of his psychokinetic powers.
  • The Psychic Wave is the only hedgehog's character-exclusive Extreme Gear not to involve a color in its name.
  • The Psychic Wave in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity bares a strong resemblance to Blaze and her traditional garb. It's possible its design was originally intended for her and was then recycled, which would explain why it holds no resemblance or connection to Silver, unlike most personal Extreme Gear, and was heavily redesigned for Free Riders.
