Silver's childhood friend Gold built the Night Thunder. Although Gold himself has passed away, his emotions and intellect live on--they were completely preserved using cybernetics and were programmed into the Night Thunder's navigation system. This machine is very competitive, with strong power bursts and an advanced dash ability.
