The Super Emeralds (スーパーエメラルド, Sūpā Emerarudo) are a set of seven emeralds in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. They are a transformation of the Chaos Emeralds that is attained with the help of the Master Emerald.
The colors of the Super Emeralds match those of the Chaos Emeralds, except the yellow Chaos Emerald turns into an orange Super Emerald. They are also much larger.
Usage and obtaining
While the Chaos Emeralds are said to have enough power to allow their possessor to conquer the world and the Great Emeralds allow their possessor to conquer the universe, the Super Emeralds allow their possessor to conquer the entire multiverse. While all seven Chaos Emeralds are needed to attain a Super transformation, only one Super Emerald is needed to attain one, meaning that the Super Emeralds are about seven times as strong as the Chaos Emeralds, and that a Hyper transformation is about seven times as strong as a Super transformation.
The Super Emeralds are obtained when a guardian or one with equal or greater power places the Chaos Emeralds and Master Emerald in an Emerald Altar and recites Tikal's Prayer. The Chaos Emeralds will levitate off their pedestals after the first line, begin to spin around the Altar after the second line, and finish transforming after the third line.
