The Void Wispon is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a Wispon that is both themed after and utilizes the power of the Violet Wisp.



Modeled after the Violet Wisp, the Void Wispon is a violet-colored Wispon. Its front consists of a sphere-like section with a serrated black mouth up front and several long purple fins on the edges of its "face" that stretch behind it. The front itself is attached to a barrel with two white rings around it. This barrel has a violet handle on the back that allows the wielder to hold it in a comfortable grip.

Features and abilities

The Void Wispon's signature function is its ability to hold Violet Wisps inside it and harness their energies to power itself. Without a Violet Wisp inside it, the Void Wispon is useless. When active, this Wispon is able to fire laser beams intense enough to shoot straight through Badnik armor.[1]

Being built to clear out crowds of robots, the Void Wispons possess a widespread attack range.[2]



The Void Wispons were built to clear out crowds of robots using the Violet Wisps' power.[2]


Using Void Wispons

Town citizens wielding Void Wispons, from Sonic the Hedgehog #2.

When a Badnik force attacked a town, the local militia and several of the residents armed themselves with Void Wispons and other Wispons which they used to fight off the invading robots. After listening to the commands of Amy Rose, the armed citizens fell back to the Town Hall, where they, on Amy's mark, successfully destroyed a wave of Badniks with the Void Wispons and other Wispons.[1]
