The Master System Super Compact is a special Sega Master System release by Sega's Brazilian distributor, Tec Toy. As the name suggests, the console is essentially a compact version of a regular Master System, being smaller in size and therefore portable. It is one of the few pieces of Sega branded hardware to never leave South America, seeing a release in Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay as well as Brazil. It is "super" compact as around this time Tec Toy had released the Master System III Compact, and this machine is smaller.

The Master System Super Compact is similar to the Sega Mega Jet, though runs Master System cartridges instead of pre-installed Sega Mega Drive ones. It can be powered via four AA batteries as well as a 5V DC power supply. One major feature is that the functionality of the Mark III Telecon Pack is built-in, allowing the user to broadcast the A/V signal to any nearby TV tuned to channels 3 or 4, making it a completely wireless unit. However, the wireless feature is prone to interference, so the console can also be connected to a TV using standard RCA cables for better picture quality.

There were three different releases of the Master System Super Compact, each with a different built-in game. One with Alex Kidd in Miracle World, one with Sonic the Hedgehog and a "special edition" version with Super Futebol II. The design was also recycled for the Master System Girl.
