Wispons were different types of weapons that harnessed the power of the Wisps.


The Imprisoned Planet

At some point in the past, the Wisps and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, as thanks for saving their race and planet, a bunch of 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)

During the War

During the war between the Eggman Empire and the Resistance, an acquaintance of Sonic the Hedgehog put a Cube Wispon "to good use".[2][3] (StH: #1)

Also during the war and following the deaths of the Diamond Cutters at the hands of Dr. Eggman and Mimic, Whisper the Wolf would use Smithy's prototype Variable Wispon to aid Resistance troops and soldiers on the battlefield. She would continue to wield the Variable Wispon as her primary weapon after the war was over. (StH: #8, T&W: #3)

Near the end of the war, a town that served as a hub for Wispon distribution was saved from Badniks by the mercenary duo, Rough the Skunk and Tumble the Skunk, who wielded a Burst Wispon and a Drill Wispon respectively. The two then offered to improve the town's defenses, but they winded up conquering the town. (StH: #3)

The Fallout from the War

When a Badnik force attacked a town, a resident used a Cube Wispon in an effort to try fighting them. The resident, however, got overwhelmed, but thankfully Sonic showed up on time to defeat the Badniks and get the resident back on his feet with his Cube Wispon in hand. Sonic also made a comment about an acquaintance of his who used Wispons well. Sonic then came across the town's militia, who were wielding Unnamed White Wisp Wispons. Sonic warned them of the person he just saved, telling them that he was the only one guarding the north from the Badniks appearing there, to which the militia agreed to go help. (StH: #1)

When a Badnik force attacked another town, the local militia and several of the residents armed themselves with various Wispons - among them Void Wispons, Burst Wispons, and at least one unnamed pink Wispon - which they used to fight off the invading robots. After listening to the commands of Amy Rose, the armed citizens fell back to the Town Hall, where they, on Amy's mark, successfully destroyed a wave of Badniks with the Void Wispons. (StH: #2)

Some Wisps leaving their Wispons.

After noticing that the Wispon distribution in the town that Rough and Tumble conquered had dried up, Knuckles the Echidna went to investigate. Sonic also showed up soon after. The two entered the town and fought against Rough and Tumble, the latter trying to use a Burst Wispon and a Lightning Wispon respectively against the heroes. However, their Wispons were left without power when Sonic convinced the Wisps in them to betray Rough and Tumble. After the two villains were defeated, the town's Wispons were returned to their owners. Soon after, the militia in Tangle the Lemur's home town made use of Wispons in an effort to combat the Badniks that were invading their town. (StH: #3, #4)

The Variable Wispon became known to the public when Sonic and Silver the Hedgehog found Whisper using it in an attempt to break down a door in one of Dr. Eggman's bases. During the following battle with some Badniks consisting of Spinas and E-107 Theta, Sonic and Silver were by her side. When Whisper dropped her Variable Wispon, her allies were prompted to save her. (StH: #8)

Whisper later put her Variable Wispon to use when she joined the Resistance on a mission to Angel Island in order to liberate it from Neo Metal Sonic, who was leading the Eggman Empire, by force. (StH: #9, #10, #11)

Bonds of Friendship

With the variable wispon in hover mode, combined with tangles' elastic tail, the Whisper and Tangle were able to propel themselves up to the Babylon Rogues getaway blimp.

Crisis City

When the zombot outbreak happened in Sunset City, the cit's defence force were wielding Burst Wispon to keep the zombots at bay, while they were planning to evacuate the survivors. (IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 19)
