After collecting enough Gold Rings, transform into the invincible Super Sonic and blast down the track at incredible speeds!

— Description, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

The Super Sonic Form is an Item Box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a Boost Item used primarily to increase the user's speed.


The Super Sonic Form's icon takes the form of the seven Chaos Emeralds surrounded by a sparkling Gold Ring. In gameplay, this power-up becomes the seven Chaos Emeralds entering Sonic's body, thus turning him into Super Sonic.

In gameplay, the Super Sonic Form can only be obtained from Item Boxes by Super Sonic. Notably, Super Sonic Form will always be Super Sonic's first power-up to be obtained when an Item Box is collected.

When obtained, the player will not be able to utilize the Super Sonic Form unless they have at least eighty Rings in their possession. The power-up's unavailability is displayed by the icon for Super Sonic Form on the bottom of the HUD being gray. As the player collects more Rings however, the Super Sonic Form's icon will gradually be colored from the bottom up. The number of available and required Rings is shown above this power-up's icon.

Once the Super Sonic Form becomes usable, its icon will pulsate and have electricity surging through it. The player can then utilize the Super Sonic Form by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the Super Sonic Form will make Sonic stop up for a moment before making Sonic initiate his super transformation and making him boost down the track for a short amount of time. In addition, the Super Sonic Form allows Super Sonic to pass through obstacles and rivals' offensive power-up without them affecting him. The duration of the Super Sonic Form is indicated by the Ring counter in the upper right corner of the screen. Notably, the Super Sonic Form will drain Super Sonic's Ring count while in use. Should Super Sonic's Ring count hit zero, the Super Sonic Form automatically ends and Super Sonic returns to normal.

The Super Sonic Form can also be upgraded by leveling Super Sonic up to level 4, 8 and 12 respectively. For each upgrade, the Super Sonic Form will increase in speed.

  • The Super Sonic Form's jingle is a short remixed version of "Fist Bump".
  • The Super Sonic Form's reliance on fifty Rings for activation is a reference to how the super transformation in various Sonic games either require fifty Rings to be activated in regular levels after being unlocked or the users of the super transformation beginning a battle with fifty Rings in their possession.
    • However, as of the version 4.2.0 update, eighty Rings are required to use this power-up.
  • The Super Sonic Form's duration being tied to the player's Ring count is a reference to how the super transformation drains the player of Rings to stay active in gameplay.
  • The positions of the Chaos Emeralds in the icon are similar to their HUD appearance in Sonic Colors.
