"The Resistance has no power over me!"
His claws can cut through solid diamond. He is a force to be reckoned with, having had never been defeated. His powers can infect a planet with Shadow Energy - a deadly liquid that if it has infected a planet enough, it can suck it into Planet Z.E.R.O. - his home planet. Although defeated by The Pure Lord Pheonix, the Dark Lord trapped him inside the soul of another. When he did, he had no clue that the host soul - that of Blast the Hedgehog - would become his most hated foe.
He has an entire league of people against him, lead by Blast the Hedgehog.
