Super Knuckles is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is the Super State of Knuckles the Echidna, achieved by harnessing the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds.
When transformed into Super Knuckles, Knuckles' physical traits remain unchanged. Instead, he gains a pulsating golden energy shield around himself.
In the Sega Mega Drive-based games, Super Knuckles' fur pulsed in a bright magenta color and he possessed a magenta colored aura. However, he lacked any form of a shield.
Powers and Abilities
Due to being infused with the seven Chaos Emeralds' power, Super Knuckles accordingly commands ultimate power and has access to unlimited energy. As Super Knuckles, Knuckles' innate abilities far surpasses his normal ones. His trademark strength has been enhanced to the point where he can smash a ship from the Eggman Fleet with a single strike and throw punches so powerful that he creates fireballs which explode upon impact. Knuckles also becomes fast enough to keep up with even Super Sonic who can move at approximately the speed of light. His reflexes are also improved, allowing him to keep up with his increased movements. Like the traditional Super State, Knuckles gains new abilities in this form too, including high-speed run-flight and virtual invulnerability to harm.
