Capsules with red chassis and transparent cover.
Wisp Capsule is an object that appears in the  . It is a type of floating capsule created by Sonic the Hedgehog series Dr. Eggman that is used for containing Wisps.
Wisp Capsules are differently-sized capsules for holding
Wisps, which always float in one place. Regular Wisp Capsules have a red-colored chassis at the bottom with a transparent top cover. On top of the covers are a red disk with a transparent spike.
Each Wisp Capsule contain only one specific type of Wisp within it. Usually, Wisp Capsules only hold one individual Wisp each, although there are exceptions.
To open a Wisp Capsule in gameplay, the player simply has to touch it. The player will then automatically obtain its Wisp. Also, after opening a Wisp Capsule, another one with the same type of Wish in it will soon after appear in the same spot.
A Wisp Capsule in the Wii version of
. Sonic Colors
In both versions of
, Wisp Capsules can be found in each Act. For most types of Wisps, Wisp Capsules only hold one Wisp each. In the case of Sonic Colors White Wisps, however, the Wisp Capsules can hold about four or five of them.
In gameplay, Wisp Capsules for Wisps that the player has yet to encounter will be empty, transparent and cannot be interacted with. Also, these Wisp Capsules have a certain color shade that signifies which Wisp it is supposed to contain.
While numerous Acts in the game ends with a
Goal Ring, there are some that have a giant Wisp Capsule, called the Prison Capsule, instead. These capsules are placed on the ground and contain numerous White Wisps in two long tubes. The Prison Capsules act as  Goals that, once opened, means the player has cleared the Act, much like Capsules.
The Wisp Capsule in the console/PC version of
. Sonic Generations
Wisp Capsules made an appearance in both versions of
. In this game, the Wisp Capsules are more detailed than in Sonic Generations , with a yellow eye having been added on the middle, similar to ones on the Prison Capsules in Sonic Colors Sonic Colors.
In the console/
PC versions, Wisp Capsules only appear in Planet Wisp, and on the Nintendo 3DS version, they only appear in Tropical Resort and can be acquired through a Homing Attack. In both versions, the Wisp Capsules only containing one type of Wisp for each Act.
, the Wisp Capsules look like their Sonic Forces counterparts, possessing no yellow eye on their middle. Like in Sonic Colors Sonic Colors, most Wisp Capsules hold only one Wisp, except for those holding White Wisps, which can contain more.
In gameplay, Wisp Capsules can be found in the
Sonic Stages, the Avatar Stages, the Tag Stages and some of the secret stage and extra stages. In the stages where Modern Sonic/ Shadow is playable, the Wisp Capsules will only contain White Wisps. In the stages where the Avatar is playable on the other hand, the Wisp Capsules can contain any type of Wisp avilable in the game, except for the White Wisps. Finally, the Tag Stages' Wisp Capsules can contain any kind of Wisp.
Much like in
Sonic Colors, any Wisp Capsule in the Avatar's stages that contain Wisps that do not match any of the Wispons the player has currently obtained will be rendered intangible and transparent until the player obtains their Wisp's associated Wispon. The color of the transparent Wisp Capsules indicate which Wisp is supposed to be in it.
In other media
Deployment Pods in the
IDW Publishing comics.
comic series and its spin-offs published by Sonic the Hedgehog IDW Publishing, the Wisp Capsules are known as Deployment Pods. Like in the games, they are used to contain Wisps.
If Sonic is using a specific Color Power, say, Pink Spikes, and collects a Wisp Capsule containing a Pink Wisp, then the Wisp Gauge will be replenished. But if he collects any other color Wisp besides the color he is currently using, then he cannot use that Color Power until he is finished with the Pink Spikes.
While Wisps make reappearance in and Sonic Lost World , all Wisp Capsules are replaced with Sonic Runners Item Boxes, which contain Wisps and other traditional items. After releasing the Wisp from Item Box, the player can activate the Color Power.
