Sonic the Hedgehog Poster # 3 Super Sonic by Patrick Spaziante Spaz


SKU: 11714 Category:


Super Sonic is the Super State of Sonic the Hedgehog that can be activated through collecting all seven Chaos Emeralds and usually fifty rings. In the 2D games, he plays like Sonic, but can jump higher, is faster, and is invincible. Nevertheless, he could still drown, die by falling off screen or get crushed against a wall. In his first appearance, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Super Sonic bears no impact on the game’s story, but would give the good ending if achieved. However, from Sonic 3 & Knuckles onward, he usually has a greater impact on the story and is often part of the ending, or secret ending. Sonic also has an extended form of Super Sonic known as Hyper Sonic, which was only used in Sonic 3 and Knuckles. As Super Sonic, Sonic gains the ability to fly and is virtually invulnerable to all harm, except for the attacks from the most powerful characters in the series such as Solaris, Perfect Dark Gaia and the Egg Salamander. All of his innate strengths and abilities are also enhanced far beyond his normal ones in this form; his trademark speed has been increased tremendously, nearing the speed of light, he can jump much higher than usual, and he has improved reflexes to match his improved movements. His physical strength is also increased vastly, allowing him to smash through large robots, barriers and Dr. Eggman’s space armada with ease as shown in Sonic Unleashed, break enormous metal restraints without effort, and even stun Perfect Dark Gaia whose size is on a par with a continent.
