The Purple Ring (紫色の世界リング Murasakiiro no sekai ringu?, lit. "Purple World Ring"), also called the Purple World Ring, is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is one of the seven World Rings which is infused with the emotion of sadness.
Sonic and the Secret Rings
In Sonic and the Secret Rings, the Purple Ring was the seventh and final World Ring obtained by Sonic and Shahra. After defeating Erazor Djinn down the corridors of the Night Palace, the duo found the Purple Ring. Grabbing the ring, Sonic felt a surge of its power which he identified as sadness.
During the final confrontation with Erazor Djinn, Sonic used all the World Rings to access Erazor's inner sanctum, before the djinn got Shahra to hand them over to him. Absorbing the Purple Ring along with the others while their control was still incomplete, Erazor transformed into the monstrous Alf Layla wa-Layla. Responding to Sonic's emotions over Shahra's subsequent death, the Purple Ring reemerged from Erazor, along with the World Rings of Rage and Hatred. The three rings transformed Sonic into Darkspine Sonic, who then literally beat the World Rings' power out of Erazor.
