A Deployment Pod is a type of floating capsule used for containing Wisps.


During the War

During the war between the Eggman Empire and the Resistance, the Deployment Pods were used by the latter to send Wisps into enemy areas where they would wait for Resistance soldiers to arrive and free them from the pods. Despite the accommodations, the Wisps did not mind the pods. (StH: #3)

Shortly before the war ended, the mercenaries Rough the Skunk and Tumble the Skunk used Deployment Pods to imprison the Wisps they had hoarded from the town they had taken over. (StH: #3)

After Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna came to Rough and Tumble's town and defeated the two villains, the townspeople helped free the captured Wisps from their Deployment Pods. (StH: #3)


A Deployment Pod is a floating capsule for holding Wisps. As a container, it has a red-colored chassis at the bottom with a transparent top cover. On top of the cover is a red disk with a transparent spike.


The Deployment Pod can float and can contain a Wisp inside of it.

Background Information

  • The Deployment Pod was based on the Wisp Capsule in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, where it first appeared in Sonic Colors as an invention of Dr. Eggman for containing Wisps.
