The Wisps are a species that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are a diminutive, yet powerful alien species originating from Planet Wisp.



The Wisps are similar in overall appearance to underwater cephalopods, such as squids. Regular Wisps all share certain common physical characteristics, such as having a mouthless head with three tentacles stemming from the bottom and being not much taller than half a meter.

Powers and abilities

All Wisps are able to levitate at will, which serve as their main method for movements.


During a previous adventure, Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower (with the aid of a Wisp named Yacker) once rescued the Wisps from being enslaved by Dr. Eggman who wanted to harness their power.[1][2]

In the past of the altered timeline created by the second Genesis Wave, the events involving the Wisps still occurred in some form. Sonic briefly mentioned them to Mega Man, and remarked that he would be curious to see what he could do with one.[3]

At some point, the New Black Comet captured a number of Wisps in their experiments to create the Dark Arms, but left their homeworld intact due to being focused on reaching Sonic's World.[4]
