And brehonia nabs 1st place and 5 points with a retcon:
In the Carnival Night Zone, when you become Super Sonic, some of the balloons do too. Most people think this is a palette issue, but in truth they are actually Super Balloons, with their own place in the series canon. Gerald Robotnik was a dick and made Shadow blow up all the hundreds of balloons needed for the Zone. This angered Shadow greatly. All of his rage was contained within a few balloons thanks to static electricity, the colour blue and Lock-On technology. Years later, some of Sonic's Super power leaks into the balloons as he approaches them, igniting the rage and turning them Super-Saiyan.
