— Super Neo Metal Sonic, Sonic the Hedgehog #9

Super Neo Metal Sonic,[3] also known simply as Super Neo Metal,[2] is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the Super State of Neo Metal Sonic, achieved through powering up with the Master Emerald.


Super Neo Metal Sonic looks identical to his form before powering up with the Master Emerald. However, in placement of his blue coat, he glows gold instead.


Battle For Angel Island

Super Neo Metal Sonic battling Sonic and Knuckles, from Sonic the Hedgehog #10.

In a stand-off against Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna inside his newly-built fortification around the Master Emerald's shrine on Angel Island, Neo Metal Sonic assumed the new form of Super Neo Metal Sonic by absorbing the power of the Master Emerald before challenging the two heroes.[2] Super Neo Metal Sonic proceeded to toy around with Sonic and Knuckles in battle, all while ruining or foiling any plan and attempt they made to snatch the Master Emerald away from him. After defeating both heroes easily, Super Neo Metal Sonic found disappointment in them as he never had to unleash his final form. Suddenly, however, he was attacked by Shadow, who forced him back to his previous form with a Chaos Spear to the torso, and beaten back to his throne on the Master Emerald.[1]

Powers and abilities

In his Super State, Neo Metal Sonic's innate abilities far surpass his normal ones. His power proved so great that he could toy around with powerful individuals like Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna without trouble.[1]

As Super Neo Metal Sonic, Neo Metal Sonic commands incredible speed, being able to move faster than both Sonic and Knuckles can react and easily match even Sonic's speed. He also has immense strength, overpowering even Knuckles with a simple handslap. He can also project golden energy bolts and even electrocute his foes with them.[1]
