Powers and abilities
The Wizards all have powers of dark magic that they're able to surpass anyone that comes across their path, especially Team Sonic, Dr. Eggman, and Eggman's robots.
They also have luminescent oval-shaped sensors located near both of their eyes due to their strong-minded personalities.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Miles "Tails" Prower
Knuckles the Echidna
Sticks the Badger
Shadow the Hedgehog
The Black Wizards are arch-enemies with Shadow since he is suspicious of Lina. Even when Shadow is alone, the Black Wizards are too strong for him to defeat.
Lina the Wolf
Upon their first meeting, Eggman is briefly interested in the Black Wizards and asked them if they can work together to defeat Sonic, which he got over it quickly when Ulric turns him down, explaining that they all work alone without any buffoons like him before attacking him.
Orbot and Cubot
- Unlike the other villains, the Black Wizards don't have any comical moments, making them the most dangerous and serious threats in Sonic Boom.
- In the finale, it is revealed that they are Ancients created by Lyric before his demise in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.
