Game appearances

Sonic and the Secret Rings

In Sonic and the Secret Rings, the Yellow Ring was the first World Ring that Sonic obtained. Finding it after Sonic defeated the Sand Scorpion, Shahra discovered she could not hold the ring as it phased through her hands. Sonic however, was able to grab it and felt a surge of its power.

During the final confrontation with Erazor Djinn, Sonic used all the World Rings to access Erazor's inner sanctum, before the djinn got Shahra to hand them over to him. Absorbing the Yellow Ring along with the others while their control was still incomplete, Erazor transformed into the monstrous Alf Layla wa-Layla. Sonic however took the World Rings of Hatred, Sadness, and Rage to become Darkspine Sonic and literally beat the World Rings' power out of Erazor.
