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.

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 only useable to Silver in normal races, but is usable to all characters (except Dr. Eggman and Vector) in Relay Race.
