Appearance

The Violet Wisps have a more menacing look than other Wisps. Their heads are round with five curved-back tentacles around them, making them look like swirls.

History

Past

At some point in the past, the Violet Wisps, along with their other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Violet Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they would help out the residents of Sonic’s world whenever they could.[1]

The War

During the War between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Violet Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield.[1]

Near the end of the War, Barricade Town, which served as a hub for Wispon distribution, was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result of the duo taking over, many Wisps, including several Violet Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

In Barricade Town, the Violet Wisps found salvation when Sonic and Knuckles arrived to stop Rough and Tumble. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the Violet Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated Violet Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons.[1]

Evidently peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, the Violet Wisps enjoy spending their time with others. They also get especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom they will gladly help out whenever they need them.[1]
