Game appearances

Sonic and the Secret Rings

The Red World Ring being discovered.

In Sonic and the Secret Rings, the Red Ring was the fifth World Ring obtained by Sonic and Shahra. Upon defeating the Ifrit Golem in the Evil Foundry, it turned into a time bomb in which Sonic quickly disposed of safely. As it exploded, it released the Red Ring. Picking up the ring, it gave off a surge of its power which Sonic identified as rage.

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 Red 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 Red Ring reemerged from Erazor, along with the World Rings of Sadness and Hatred. The three rings transformed Sonic into Darkspine Sonic, who then literally beat the World Rings' power out of Erazor.
