Super Transformation is an ability useable by certain individuals, living or robotic, that allows them to take on a more powerful form.
Known Super Forms
- Burning Blaze: Blaze the Cat can tap into her own super form using Sol Emeralds, a form which has pink fur, a red jacket, fire-colored arm and ankle bands, and a fiery aura. She first used this form to combat Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega, and later against Captain Metal and the Egg O' War. (SU: #58, VG: SRu, SRuA)
- Super Armor Mega Man: Mega Man took on this form during both of his adventures with Sonic. He first attained it, with Sonics direction, within the Skull Egg Zone to prevent his world from being hit by the Super Genesis Wave. He later took on the form again to help Sonic in taking down Sigma and saving their fused worlds. (StH: #251, #275; MM: #52)
- Super Shadow: Shadow the Hedgehog has on several occasions used the power of the Chaos Emeralds to take on a golden-furred form. This form has served him against the Finalhazard, Devil Doom, and the monstrous Solaris in a timeline that was later erased. (VG: SA2, ShaH, S06)

- While most of the games seem to feature a time limit for Super forms, it does not appear that this is the case for the Archie comics series.
- The Super Transformation was first implemented in Sonic 2 with Super Sonic as a secret cheat after getting all seven Chaos Emeralds. In Sonic 3 and Knuckles, multiple characters with super forms became a trend in games such as Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, Sonic Rush and Sonic Adventure 2.
- The Metal Sonic transformation in the Knuckles Chaotix special was never named in the comic, but in the game it was called "Metal Sonic Kai". It was later named Titan Metal Sonic in the bonus information at the back of the first volume of the Sonic Universe Graphic Novel Series.
- NICOLE is currently the only non-Sega Sonic female character to possess a Super Transformation and the second female overall, after Blaze, to possess one.
- Ian Flynn originally intended for X to gain a super form along with Sonic and Mega Man during the climax of Worlds Unite, however the idea was rejected by SEGA.
