Super Sonic (スーパーソニック) is a super transformation and powered up version of Sonic the Hedgehog in the Sonic series. It is archived by harnessing the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds and, often, a supply of Rings. Super Sonic has made three appearances in the McLeodGaming media, including as an antagonist in A Super Mario World, a playable character in Super Smash Flash, and Sonic's Final Smash in Super Smash Flash 2.
When transformed into Super Sonic, Sonic's blue fur becomes golden, his skin becomes a golden peach tone, his green eyes turn red, his quills point upward, and a golden aura surrounds him. Super Sonic has the ability to fly and is invulnerable to almost any harm. His physical abilities in this form are also enhanced far beyond his normal ones; his trademark speed is increased tremendously to reach the speed of light, he can jump much higher, and he has improved reflexes to match his increased movements. His physical strength is also increased vastly, allowing him to smash through large robots and barriers with ease, grab enormous robots with one hand, and even defeat beings of tremendous size and power, including deities such as Solaris and Perfect Chaos. As shown in most games, especially during final boss battles, Super Sonic's weakness is that he relies on ring energy to maintain his transformation, which is a common trait among Chaos Emerald-caused super transformations. Once Super Sonic runs out of rings, he will revert to his normal state.
In many Sonic games, Super Sonic plays like Sonic's regular form but can jump higher, move faster, and is nearly invincible. In his first appearance, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Super Sonic can be bears no impact on the game's story but would lead to 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, in which he is generally able to fly and must defeat the boss before running out of Rings.
In A Super Mario World
Super Sonic is featured in the second episode of A Super Mario World, in which Sonic activates it as his last resort to defeat Mario and Link after they defeated his partner Knuckles. Mario and Link prove to be no match for Super Sonic's power and were nearly defeated by him when suddenly, before Super Sonic could deal the final blow, he is attacked from the back by Cloud, turning him back into his regular from and defeating him with ease.
