Shahra's Ring,[1] also known as simply the Ring,[2] is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is the ring belonging to Shahra, the genie of the ring, and which is used by her masters to give her commands.


Once Sonic the Hedgehog placed the Ring it on his finger, he met Shahra, who requested his help. Shahra's Ring has a unique ability to grant as many wishes as the wielder desires–however, the wishes are not very powerful compared to that of a lamp-genie's. The Ring displays an inscription on its surface that calls for good luck upon its wearer.[1]


  • Strangely, in the opening cutscene of the game, the ring appears to be as large as the Rings that Sonic collects in gameplay, but is later shown to fit around his finger. This can simply be explained by the fact that it is magic.
  • The inscription on the ring in its concept artwork can be translated to "May God Bless You".[3]
