The Orange Wisp is a type of Wisp. As its name suggests, it is orange.


The Imprisoned Planet

At some point in the past, the Orange Wisps, along with other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Orange Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they helped out the residents of Sonic’s world whenever they could, the Wispons being one such way of helping in particular.[1] (StH: #3)

The Diamond Cutters were allied to a group of wisps so that they could be used to power their wispons. An wisp named Orange Rocket worked with Whisper the Wolf powering up her wispon on several missions. It joined Whisper's side after the group was betrayed by their former member, Mimic. This Orange Wisp would help out Whisper by powering her Variable Wispon under various circumstances. (T&W: 3, StH: #8)

During the War

During the war between the Eggman Empire and the Resistance, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield. (StH: #3)

Near the end of the war, a town that served as a hub for Wispon distribution was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result, many Wisps, including several Orange Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers. (StH: #3)

In the town that Rough and Tumble had taken over, the Orange Wisps found salvation when Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna arrived to stop the two mercenaries. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the Orange Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated Orange Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons. (StH: #3)

During a trip to one of Dr. Eggman's bases, Whisper and her team of Wisps (the Orange Wisp included) encountered Sonic and Silver the Hedgehog. Despite Whisper's initial mistrust, once her Orange Wisp and other Wisps openly greeted Sonic, Whisper chose to team up with the duo. When the newly-formed trio then took on a horde of Badniks, Whisper's Orange Wisp came to Whisper's defense when she was at the mercy of the robots. Fortunately, Sonic and Silver destroyed the Badniks before they could harm them. (StH: #8)


The Orange Wisp has a rocket-shaped body with two green eyes lined up vertically. Instead of tentacles like most other Wisps, it instead has three sphere-like structures on its bottom.


Being a Wisp, the Orange Wisp is peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and it enjoys spending its time with others. It gets especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom it would gladly help out whenever it was needed.

The Orange Wisp is not much for fighting. However, it is nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, it does not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when its friends need it.


The Orange Wisp is able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as its main method of transportation.

The Orange Wisp is able to generate and store its own unique variant of a powerful energy inside its own body. The Orange Wisp can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.
