When transformed into Super Sonic, Sonic's proportions remain unchanged for the most part, and he still wears the same gloves and Puma shoes he normally wears. Various changes include his blue fur becoming golden yellow in color, his green irises turning red, and the quills on his head pointing upwards. He also possesses a soft, golden aura that displays faint sparkles.


Film series

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

After the Master Emerald broke down and released the seven Chaos Emeralds, Sonic inadvertently used the Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super Sonic before Dr. Robotnik could stomp on him, Tom, and Maddie in the Giant Eggman Robot. After keeping the Giant Eggman Robot from crushing his foster family with its feet, Super Sonic ripped its head off and exposed Robotnik, declaring to the doctor that their battle was over. As the doctor faked trying to make peace with the hedgehog, he tried to punch him with the Giant Eggman Robot, only for Super Sonic to stop it effortlessly. Super Sonic proceeded to destroy both of the mech's fists and then zipped straight through it multiple times. As a final move, the hedgehog tipped the Giant Eggman Robot over with a tap of his foot. When Super Sonic returned to his friends, Knuckles initially believed that Sonic had been driven mad with power, only to see that he was wrong when the hedgehog summoned two chili dogs for them to eat, with Knuckles' chili dog landing on his face. Following this, Sonic released the Chaos Emeralds, having deemed himself not mature enough yet to wield their power, and they flew off to parts unknown.

Powers and abilities

Due to being infused with the seven Chaos Emeralds' power, Super Sonic possesses what he has deemed himself to be god-like power; Tails even described Super Sonic as the most powerful hero in the universe.

As Super Sonic, Sonic's innate talents far surpasses his normal ones. His strength has been increased to such levels that he can effortlessly overpower a punch from giant mechs like the Giant Eggman Robot with a single hand. Super Sonic also has incredible durability, able to catch a punch from the Giant Eggman Robot's colossal fist without hurting himself. His speed has also increased dramatically, enough to let him circle the Giant Eggman Robot multiple times in a matter of seconds and slice its head off with sheer speed, and he possesses improved reflexes and agility to match his improved movements. In addition, Super Sonic has been granted the power of high-speed flight.

Seemingly possessing the power to turn thoughts into reality, Super Sonic also has the ability to manifest objects at will; to do this he summons a storm cloud and the object is created from a lightning bolt. For example, he was once able to conjure two chili dogs for himself and Knuckles.
