Effects

The Void and the Zone of Silence share the quality of being nearly impossible to escape. In the cartoon, it was discovered that Sonic's super speed allowed him to escape a Void portal, and he could also pull others through with him. However, prolonged imprisonment in the Void led to side effects, the most obvious being a slow crystallization effect of the body that prevented anyone from escaping the Void for long. Any land in the Void was made from strange crystals, which Naugus could mold into any shape using his magic.


The Zone of Silence has similar qualities in the comic, including the crystallization effect. However, victims of this began to resemble sculptures made from Chaos Emeralds. Naugus, while in the Zone, was also omnipotent, making it impossible to defeat him inside. Other side effect on long-term captives of the Zone of Silence included insanity and apparent amnesia, and the only protection from worse effects was Naugus' crystallization of his minions, or being a native of the Zone. In addition, Naugus was later permanently freed from the Zone thanks to the use of the Sword of Acorns. The Zone of Silence changed to resemble 32-bit levels from the Sonic the Hedgehog games following the teleportation of every Chaos Emerald in the universe into it, and was renamed the Special Zone.
