Super Neo Metal Sonic, a transformation for Neo Metal Sonic

A Super transformation is a type of transformation undertaken by certain characters in which they utilize energy from or related to the Chaos Emeralds and/or the Master Emerald in order to enter a Super State where they are more powerful versions of themselves.


The Battle for Angel Island

After taking over Angel Island, Neo Metal Sonic fashioned himself a throne on top of the Master Emerald. Sitting there and speaking to himself, he challenged Sonic to come and stop him, either as himself or as Super Sonic, as he held all the cards that made Sonic powerless to stop him. He eventually met with both Sonic and Knuckles, who tried to attack him, but they failed as he used the Master Emerald to transform into Super Neo Metal Sonic before their very eyes. (StH: #8, #9)
