Super Sonic (スーパーソニック Sūpā Sonikku?) is the Super State of Sonic the Hedgehog, achieved by harnessing the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds. Since Super Sonic's first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, this form has been Sonic's most commonly used transformation. In the 2D games, he plays like Sonic, but can jump higher, is faster and is invincible. In his first appearance, Super Sonic bore no impact on the game's story, but would give the good ending if achieved. However, from Sonic & Knuckles onward, he usually has a greater impact on the story and is often part of the ending, or secret ending. His strength has been increased to such levels that he can plow through large robots, barriers and Eggman’s space armada without slowing down, break enormous metal restraints without effort, and even knock back Perfect Dark Gaia whose size is on par with a mountain. His trademark super speed has been enhanced dramatically too, approaching the speed of light. In most sonic games sonic need a total of 50 rings to become Super and he loses rings fast for his Super form.Super Sonic's trademark attack is the Super Sonic Boost, an attack where Sonic cloaks himself in a fiery aura and launches himself into enemies with increased speed and enormous force. This attack has both offensive and defensive capabilities, allowing Sonic to deflect projectiles back at his foes or blast through attacks. Alternatively, he can perform smaller dashes for quick, short-ranged movements. Over time, Super Sonic has developed variants of the Super Sonic Boost, like the Arrow of Light, where he arguments his attack by absorbing light, and the Super Sonic Missile. He can even combine his Super Sonic Boost with similar techniques to amplify its size and power, such as Super Shadow's Super Sonic Boost or Burning Blaze's Burning Fire Boost. Like his natural state, Super Sonic can also utilize his standard techniques, including the Spin Attack, Spin Jump, Spin Dash and Homing Attack, and light-speed techniques such as the Light Speed Attack and the Light Speed Dash.Super Sonic can only stay transformed for a short time without sustainment, as a Super State consumes tremendous amounts of energy. Extensive usage will also put him at risk of disappearing entirely.
