The Red Wisp is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a type of Wisp.

Appearance

The Red Wisps have heads that each looks like a flaming teardrop with two small spikes at the top. They also have three blue eyes that form a triangular pattern on their heads. They also have three flame-like tentacles that stem from their bottom.

History

Past

At some point in the past, the Red Wisps, along with their other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Red Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they would help out the residents of Sonic’s world whenever they could.[1]

The Eggman War

During the war between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Red Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield.[1]

Near the end of the Eggman War, Barricade Town, which served as a hub for Wispon distribution, was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. Additionally, a Red Wisp was used to power the Burst Wispon that Rough wielded while saving the town. As a result of the duo taking over, many Wisps, including several Red Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

The Red Wisps and multiple other Wisps surrounding Rough, Sonic, Knuckles and Tumble, from Sonic the Hedgehog #3.

In Barricade Town, the Red Wisps found salvation when Sonic and Knuckles arrived to stop Rough and Tumble. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the Red Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated Red Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons.[1]

Personality

Being Wisps, the Red Wisps are peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending their time with others. They get especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom they will gladly help out whenever they need them.[1]

The Red Wisps are not much for fighting. However, they are nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, they do not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when their friends need them.[1]

Powers and abilities

The Red Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.[1]

The Red Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy inside their own bodies. The Red Wisps can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.
