Originally, I know Sonic could go Super Sonic whenever you collected the Chaos Emeralds in most of the Sonic the Hedgehog games. However, I've seen Sonic in quite a few other altered states. An example would be that I saw Sonic with no pupils and two stripes over his head. It would seem that he has gained a few other forms over the years that I'm not quite aware of, so I would like to know what other forms he has besides Super Sonic and what games they originated from. And, if you're feeling loving, maybe give a little description about what the form does.


Below is a list of transformations for sonic.

Super Transformation

Super Transformation (Sūpā-ka) is a frequently recurring gameplay feature and story element within the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It was first referred to by name in Sonic Heroes. It was known as 'Super' back in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, when you collected all the Emeralds the text would say "Now Sonic can be Super Sonic" (and again in Sonic 3 and Knuckles, Now <character> can be Super <character>"

Hyper Sonic

Hyper Sonic (Haipā Sonikku) is a hyper transformation of Sonic the Hedgehog that is obtained by collecting all seven Super Emeralds, Chaos Emeralds that have been enhanced by the Master Emerald. To trigger the transformation, Sonic must collect at least fifty Rings and perform the Insta-shield. To this date, Hyper Sonic is recognized as the most powerful form of Sonic ever.

Darkspine Sonic

Darkspine Sonic (Dākusupain Sonikku) is one of Sonic the Hedgehog's transformations, appearing in Sonic and the Secret Rings. Rather than using the Chaos Emeralds, he uses the World Rings of rage, hatred and sadness to transform. In this form, Sonic's personality is slightly more sinister and violent due to the intense feelings that each of the World Rings contain. He is playable in the final battle against Alf Layla wa-Layla, an enhanced form of Erazor Djinn.

Excalibur Sonic

Excalibur Sonic (Ekusukaribā Sonikku), also written as Excalibur-Sonic, is one of Sonic the Hedgehog's transformations, appearing in Sonic and the Black Knight. Sonic assumed this form by the power of the transformed Caliburn and the three sacred swords. He is playable in the final battle against the Dark Queen, an enhanced form of Merlina the Wizard.


Dark Sonic is a next form of sonic that was only seen in the Sonic X series. The form was gained from sonic seeing his friend in pain. The power enhances Sonic's strength, speed, and some what his anger.

These are all the transformations for Sonic as documented on the "[Sonic Wikia][5]".

  • Your answer is fantastic. However I remember seeing one more, like a darker version of sonic. I believe it was on Sonic Unleashed if I'm correct – Lukifur Helbringer Sep 3 '15 at 12:28
  • @LukifurHelbringer You're thinking of the Werehog. – EnragedTanker Sep 3 '15 at 13:32
  • Actually Tails calls the form Super Sonic by name at the end of Sonic Adventure – IG_42 Jul 19 '16 at 23:09

Sonic also has a Werehog form which was introduced and used in Sonic Unleashed. This form was obtained when Sonic was exposed to Dark Gaia's power which allows him to transform into this form at night in the game.

there was also ultra sonic, who was able to change his appearance and abilities depending on where he was. (he turned into solar, polar, and eco sonic) he was also able to change atoms.

    I made some minor tweaks to your formatting to help it look a bit more as you intended, but as it stands your answer would be greatly improved by providing a bit more information about the different forms as well as providing sources for your information. – Malco Sep 12 '18 at 18:38

    This answer could be improved by adding some information about which games these forms are from. I would also recommend to limit your answer to actual SEGA canon media, because if you add anything made up by a fandom as prolific and creative as the Sonic fandom, your answer could eventually break the Stack Exchange character limit :) – Philipp Sep 12 '18 at 21:41
