The root of all our problems... I will defeat you, Solaris!

— Super Silver, Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Super Silver (スーパーシルバー Sūpā Shirubā?) is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is the Super State of Silver the Hedgehog, achieved by harnessing the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds.


Following the traditional Super State, visual changes to Silver while in this form include a bright pale golden color replacing his normally white fur, and his mane becomes a darker yellow golden color that floats up behind his head. Like Super Sonic and Super Shadow, he has ruby red eyes and his quills float. The two on the back of his head point upwards, while the five on his forehead push forward and spread out, with the bottom two pointing upwards. The teal glow on his gloves, cuffs and boots turns into a bright yellow color as well and he gains a golden aura.


After gathering all the Chaos Emeralds and reviving Sonic in his Super State, Silver and Shadow received power from Super Sonic, allowing them to assume their Super States to help Super Sonic defeat Solaris. After an epic battle, the heroes were victorious. Super Silver and his allies rejoined their jubilant friends as they watch Solaris implode, allowing Sonic and Elise to erase Solaris from the timeline entirely, along with Super Silver's involvement in the conflict.

Powers and abilities

Super Silver using the Shield Of Light.

Due to being infused with the seven Chaos Emeralds' power, Super Silver accordingly commands ultimate power and has access to unlimited energy.[1][2] In his Super State, all of Silver's innate abilities are vastly enhanced, giving him an exceptional increase in strength and speed that rivals both Super Sonic and Super Shadow's. He also has improved reflexes to match his upgraded movements and those of his enemies. In addition, Super Silver possesses all the standard abilities of the traditional Super State. He now has the ability to fly without the need of his psychokinesis and he can perform small midair dashes at incalculable speeds. He is also virtually invulnerable to all harm, although it can be bypassed when enough force is applied.

The power of Silver's psychokinetic abilities has been increased following his transformation, allowing him to use empowered moves such as the Shield of Light, where he creates a large shield of telekinetic energy which can stop all projectiles within the radius and then throw them back a great distance. He has also free access to various chaos powers, such as Chaos Control which lets him bend time and space to his will.


Super Silver can only stay transformed for a short time without sustainment from Ring Energy, as a Super State consumes tremendous amounts of energy.

Super Silver, from Sonic the Hedgehog #29.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing, Super Silver is the Super State of Silver, achived with the seven Chaos Emeralds. His past is virtually identical to his game counterpart's, up until after the events of Sonic Forces. This form was seen for the first time when Silver and Sonic used the Chaos Emeralds to assume their Super States. Using then the Warp Topaz, Super Silver and Super Sonic sent the Metal Virus into the Sun. However, the Warp Topaz soon overloaded, causing Super Silver to be blown down to Angel Island and de-transform.

Silver artwork from Sonic Rivals 2.

  • Super Silver is the only character who can damage Solaris before any of its shields are destroyed.
  • The artwork of Super Silver in the Sonic Art Assets DVD is almost the same as Silver's official Sonic Rivals 2 artwork. The only differences (other than the color) are that Silver is reaching up with his right hand and that the expression on his mouth is different and his two big quills are sticking up slightly.
  • Super Silver is the only character whose Super Gauge is pre-filled in the Solaris fight.
  • In the scene where Silver transforms in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), there is nothing on his gloves and his eyes are missing. However, the in game character model and in all cutscenes past "Wishing Upon the Chaos Emeralds" show that Super Silver has red eyes and that the symbols on his gloves now glow a shade of gold instead of their usual cyan.
  • Super Silver is indirectly referenced in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. In the Codex's entry on the Chaos Emeralds, it is stated that Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles, and a variety of other people have been known to use the power of the Emeralds to achieve powered up states.
