Vision Trap is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an Extreme Gear Gear Part that grants Colorball to opponents.


Vision Trap is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a red-colored circle with black blots inscribed in it.


In the game, Vision Trap is permanently installed into only certain Extreme Gears. When used, Vision Trap gives Colorball to all the opponents participating in the same race with the player, obscuring their vision, similar to obtaining it from an Item Box. However, the effect of the Colorball granted by Vision Trap only lasts for a limited time.

In gameplay, Vision Trap and its ability will be disabled when starting a new race. To activate Vision Trap, the player must press one of the following buttons after collecting a certain number of Rings:
