The Super Idol is a type of Hidden Immunity Idol that can be used after the votes have been read. In this mechanic, all the votes the user received will be negated, and the person with the next highest number of votes will be eliminated instead. This creates a scenario where the group which originally had the fewer votes gathered during Tribal Council gain control of that vote.

The downside however is that it is almost impossible to counter without a split vote plan: with the knowledge of the castaway being voted out is known, the voting side who has the super idol has full control of who is going to be voted out, as they know where the majority votes will go, negating their power with the idol.

3-3 A new twist of Exile Island came to play with the Crypt of Secrets. When a reward challenge was complete, one person from the winning tribe(s) would send one person to the Crypt where they will be exiled from the rest of their tribe and will rejoin them in the upcoming immunity challenge. When Nadine was exiled she found a Super Idol called "The Medallion of Bra" and used it at the Day 31 Tribal Council to save herself from a 3-3 revote.
