Super Sonic is Sonic's super form, seen in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It gives Sonic a golden aura and temporary invincibility. The move is also Sonic's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Super Sonic debuted in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Genesis after Sonic came in possession of seven Chaos Emeralds. Since then Super Sonic has appeared in several Sonic video games.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Once Sonic executes this attack, the screen will pause and seven Chaos Emeralds will surround him and his hair will suddenly turn golden. Sonic will not be capable of performing any attacks while he's Super Sonic, though he can plow through enemies without taking any damage. Nevertheless, his opponents are only able to dodge this attack, they are incapable to attack Super Sonic. Sonic is completely invincible to anything.
The following is Super Sonic's trophy description:
- "Sonic's Final Smash. The Chaos Emeralds give energy to all living things, and Sonic's gathered all seven of them, then used their power to transform into Super Sonic. His abilities in this form far surpass his normal ones, and he is even able to fly. He uses a lot of energy in this form, so he can only remain in it for a short time."
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
The attack is simplified in Smash Ultimate compared to previous entries. Instead of Sonic freely being able to fly around the stage, he instead rapidly flies across the screen, able to move only up and down.
