Not to be confused with the Sonic the Hedgehog episode, Sonic and the Secret Scrolls.

Sonic and the Secret Rings, known as Sonic to Himitsu no Ring (ソニックと秘密のリング) in Japan and Sonic Wildfire early in development, is a Sonic game released exclusively on the Wii. It is the first installment in the "storybook series", followed by Sonic and the Black Knight. It is also the first 3D Sonic game to feature Sonic as the only playable character. It was released 20 February 2007 in North America.[1] The game was initially conceived of as a port of the 2006 game Sonic the Hedgehog, but was reworked into an original title.


Sonic is sleeping until Shahra the Ring Genie wakes up Sonic and tells him that an evil genie called Erazor Djinn is absorbing power from the book "Arabian Nights" and is making the pages disappear. Shahra mentions to Sonic that a Legendary Blue Hedgehog can stop Erazor. Sonic agrees and puts on a ring that seals a contract between Sonic and Shahra, where she is allowed to grant wishes to Sonic. After putting on the ring Sonic and Shahra both jump into the Arabian Nights book where they are approached by Erazor.

Erazor shoots a burning arrow into Sonic's chest, which forces Sonic to go search for the seven World Rings; if Sonic refuses, he will die, as the arrow is slowly burning his life force. At the final chapter, Erazor attempts to stab Sonic with his blade, but Shahra was caught in Sonic's place. Erazor then absorbs the power of the seven World Rings to become Alf-Layla-wa-Layla. However, his transformation will not complete unless he kills Sonic. But three of the World Rings transform Sonic into Darkspine Sonic who battles Erazor and defeats him.

After defeating Erazor, Sonic takes control of his lamp by wishing that Erazor brings Shahra back to life, change the world back to normal, and go inside his lamp and stay there forever. Erazor, being forced to grant these wishes, does so, and is in his lamp forever. After that Sonic throws Erazor's lamp into the lava. Shahra, who was brought back to life, apologizes for her earlier betrayal, which Sonic accepts.
