In Sonic the Comic however, his teammates do not know that he is a prince.

Despite his seeming insanity, he sometimes appears to be smarter than he seems and deliberately putting on his annoying air; he is also the one responsible for defeating the villains in both Chaotix solo strips, first by having the Fundamental Four turned into a vase and then by buying out the Crimson Cobra's company and the base, minions, weapons and even robot arms that came with it.
