B.A.R.F.

B.A.R.F., the Badnik Army Repair Functionaries, were a division of Robotnik's workers who repaired the Badnik robots destroyed by the Freedom Fighters. How big the division was is unknown: only two of its Search and Repair operatives, Cam (a cat) and Bert (a bull) were ever seen. Bert was the general 'handy-man' (with a strong fondness for hammers and hitting things with them); Cam, easily his intellectual superior, dealt more in re-programming computers. Both of them were highly devoted to Robotnik and the "improvements" he'd made to Mobius. Motobug, the very first badnik ever seen in the Sonic series A Badnik is a term for an enemy robot in the early North American and European localizations of the Sonic the Hedgehog video games. ...

Left Cam, Right Bert.

The two appeared in two of their own Sonic's World stories - No More Mr. Nice Bug (STC 32-34) and The Seven Badniks (STC 59-62). In their first appearance, Sonic's ally Porker Lewis made a weapon that could change the programming of Badniks to make them pacifist "Niceniks" (pacifist up until the point you stepped on a flower, anyway). While reprogramming the corrupted Moto Bugs back, B.A.R.F managed to lose two of them and they had to track them down for fear they would infect other Moto Bugs. When the Niceniks launched a vicious assault on them for harming flowers, Cam and Bert retaliated by smashing them.

In their second appearance (wearing new uniforms and with Cam having less jagged teeth), they were tasked with transporting Badniks from the Miracle Planet's Palmtree Panic Zone to Mobius' Green Hill Zone, in order to catch Sonic off guard by having him face Badniks he wouldn't expect to find in that Zone. However, the Palmtree Panic models refused to share a Zone with the older Green Hill Badniks and ran amok, exterminating all the older models. The titular Seven Badniks - Metamoto, Buzzorgsky, Crabaton, Crabinator, Buzznik, Motobotnik and Choppalien - were then built out of Green Hill Badniks by B.A.R.F to pacify the Palmtree Panic models, which they did with ease. The unruly Badniks were then taken back to the Miracle Planet (where they were promptly smashed by the vacationing Freedom Fighters). Cam & Bert never returned again, and neither did the Seven Badniks despite the writer deliberately setting them up to be used again.

Buzzorgsky, Buzznik, Crabbaton and Crabnik use Newtron parts, with the latter two using Crabmeats as well; Metamoto and Motobotnik appear little more than souped-up Motobugs; Choppalien is clearly a modified Chopper, with a secondary mouth.

Notes: though it ran at the same time, 'The Seven Badniks' must be set before the story 'Brotherhood Of Metallix' because of the use of the Palmtree Panic Zones and the Miracle Planet without the Brotherhood's involvement.

Big the Cat

In Sonic the Comic, Big makes a single-panel appearance when Chaos, drained of power and restored to its original fish form, lands next to Big, who is fishing in those waters, prompting him to turn and mumble "Hmmm?" For the Archie-published comic, see Sonic the Hedgehog (comic series). ...


By #226 of Sonic the Comic Online, Big has fished out Chaos - who he calls "Buddy" - and the two form an unlikely partnership (a fat cat and a big fish), with Big unwittingly being used to help Chaos regain his powers. This ended after the encounter with The King Of Ghosts in the Haunted Hill Zone mines; Big, having commented several times in the story that he was hungry, finally looks at Chaos while licking his lips and saying "Really hungry...". It is assumed this is either a joke by the writers or that Big has literally eaten Chaos. King Boom Boo is a fictional villain in the Sonic the Hedgehog games. ...


Big returned in #243-4 for a story called Kill Big - he accidentally wandered in and ate all the food at a gangster wedding reception, and was marked for death by the Family. He showed previously unknown combat skills, able to catch a bullet, body-slam the Family's assassin and escape on a bus by catching onto the back with his fishing pole. After this, the Family decided Big had useful skills and instead of killing him, forced him to work for them... as a chef. Despite initial protests, Big seems quite happy in his new job.


Colonel Granite

Granite invades Mobius.

A colonel in the British army, Percy Granite suffered from megalomaniacal tendencies and xenophobia - so it was an extremely bad situation when he ran into Amy Rose & Tekno, who had just been transported to Earth. He attempted to arrest them on grounds of being aliens and discover how to get to Mobius, reasoning Earth had to attack it to be on the safe side; the girls were able to teleport back to Mobius, but Granite was able to commandeer the technology they used. He used it to develop time-travel technology, intending to conquer the 19th Century with 20th Century weaponry, but was thwarted by Amy & Tekno during their period working for the Eternity Ring. Image File history File linksMetadata Granitehaha. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Granitehaha. ...


Granite finally turned to creating a dimensional gateway to Mobius and invading it. On New Year's Eve 1998, he went AWOL with an army regiment and invaded the Emerald Hill Zone, trouncing the Freedom Fighters with superior firepower and planning to sell off the conquered Zones to human industrial developers (and rename Mobius "Planet Percy" after his first name). He was finally defeated by a freak storm that took out his regiment and blew them back through the dimensional gateway to Earth - seemingly, the spirit of nature itself had fought back against Granite and his plans to destroy the ecosystem. He was last seen being arrested for war crimes on the order of the Prime Minister. In the United Kingdom, the Prime Minister is the head of government, exercising many of the executive functions nominally vested in the Sovereign, who is head of state. ...

Doctor Zachary is a fictional character who first appeared in Sonic the Comic #65 as an enemy of Knuckles the Echidna, and has featured more prominently in the online continuation of the series as leader of The Syndicate. Zachary is one of only two Echidnas known to still be alive. He has secret knowledge of the Echidna people, and may even know where they went. In comic books, first appearance refers to first comic book to feature a character. ... For the Archie-published comic, see Sonic the Hedgehog (comic series). ... Richard Elson is a British comic book artist best known for his work on various 2000 AD strips and Sonic the Comic. ... Nigel Kitching (born 29 May 1959) is an illustrator and writer in comics and in books. ... Dr. Eggman as seen on Sonic X. In Sonic the Hedgehog video games, Doctor Eggman (in modern-day and Japanese versions), or Doctor Ivo Robotnik (early United States and European versions), is the archnemesis of Sonic the Hedgehog. ...

Ancient Echidna warriors as seen in Echidnas in the video game, comic book, and television series fiction of Sonic the Hedgehog, are anthropomorphic, dreadlocked animals that stand out from the other humanoid animals. ...


When he first returned to the Floating Island, he claimed he was being hunted by a dangerous robot (in actuality an Echidna Guardian robot he had reprogrammed); the surprised Knuckles was tricked into taking him to the Emerald Chamber. Zachary then had the robot invade the Chamber and destroy the Master Emerald, absorbing its Chaos Energy into itself. He then boarded the super-charged robot and set off to devastate Mobius & get an unknown revenge on the other Echidnas, leaving the Floating Island to crash. However, Knuckles caught him before he could escape and decapitated Zachary's robot.


However, before Knuckles could take him prisoner, an inopportune quake threw Zachary from the island, sending him plummeting towards Mobius. While airborne, Zachary was able to use the robot's body to soften his landing, but the impact left him horribly injured. He would have died if not found by a Badnik patrol. Motobug, the very first badnik ever seen in the Sonic series A Badnik is a term for an enemy robot in the early North American and European localizations of the Sonic the Hedgehog video games. ...


Dr. Robotnik took a special interest in Zachary, believing that Knuckles was the only Echidna on Mobius, and saved Zachary's life by integrating him with Badnik technology, replacing his right arm with a laser cannon and the entire right side of his head and face. In return, Zachary was able to provide Robotnik with important information, namely that the Emerald Hill folk were hiding out on the Floating Island. The pair attacked and successfully took control of the Island, using a gang of reprogrammed Guardian robots and planning to use the Emerald Hill folk as organic components in a vast supercomputer. However, an electromagnetic pulse caused by Super Sonic surged across the planet shutting down all of Robtonik's computer networks and Badniks. The Guardian robots, products of ancient echidna science, were unaffected, but the software that Zachary used to control them was destroyed and they ceased obeying him. Knuckles fought Zachary one-on-one, though halfway through Sonic the Hedgehog suddenly intervened and knocked the villain out. In the ensuing confusion over arresting Robotnik, Zachary burrowed into the heart of the Floating Island to escape. Due to STC's cancellation, his fate remained a mystery. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... The term electromagnetic pulse (EMP) has the following meanings: electromagnetic radiation from an explosion (especially a nuclear explosion) or an intensely fluctuating magnetic field caused by Compton-recoil electrons and photoelectrons from photons scattered in the materials of the electronic or explosive device or in a surrounding medium. ... This article is about super transformation in the comics and TV shows. ...


On the sonicthecomic E-group, Nigel Kitching revealed that an unused plan for Zachary was that he was still on the Island when it sunk (during the last storyline), and was trying to release a gang of Echidna criminals that had been placed in suspended animations. (Kitching admitted that he hadn't taken Zachary into consideration when he wrote the island's submergence.) For the Archie-published comic, see Sonic the Hedgehog (comic series). ...


In Sonic the Comic Online, Zachary resurfaced and attempted to take control of Super Sonic. When that failed, he assembled a gang of supervillains called the Syndicate and brought to life a dormant Shadow the Hedgehog, with the intent of using the Chaos Emeralds to ignite all of Mobius' residual Chaos Energy and literally blow up the planet. The plan failed and Zachary's mysterious ally Vichama betrayed him; Knuckles was able to capture him and took him to the Floating Island for questioning. This has not gone well, with Zachary refusing to answer questions and instead taunting Knuckles over the death of the Special Zone. This article is about the video game character. ... The Special Zone is a fictional universe from Fleetways Sonic the Comic, based on the Special Stages from the early Sonic the Hedgehog games, and the setting of many stories since its debut in #8. ...


Trivia

  • Archie comics echidna villain Dr. Finitevus, introduced almost a decade later, has a similar look to Zachary. As a cyborg Echidna dedicated to Mobius' subjugation, Zachary could serve as a counterpart to Archie's Dark Legion.
  • There is some debate amongst fans about what Zachary is actually a Doctor of. Many presume that he is a doctor of engineering or robotics given his demonstrated expertise.

D.R.A.T.

An acronym for Doctor Robotnik Appreciation Tribe, D.R.A.T. were a recurring group of enemies for Sonic and the Freedom Fighters before and after Robotnik's downfall. Despite their best efforts to be evil, the group is usually ridiculed by Sonic's gang and finally suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Tails and Charmy Bee. Their leader and best known member is Grand Chief Whip, a rooster who wears "The Golden Mustache" on a chain around his neck who takes incredible pride in his position.

The initiation ceremony for the group seems decidedly strange, as candidates must balance on one foot in a bucket of custard while kissing The Golden Mustache and reciting the initiation oath.


Ebony

Ebony is a anthropomorphic cat and a skilled magic-user. She ran a coffee bar named the Groovy Train and was best friends with a slightly senile seer called Pyjamas. She first appeared in the Knuckles the Echidna story Roots, trying to prevent sentient trees from being cut down. After Robotnik was defeated, she took in the homeless Super Sonic in his pacifistic phase and tried to hide him from both the law and Lord Sidewinder's thugs. Despite her knowledge of what Super Sonic truly was, she was convinced that he had made a genuine change, ultimately putting her at odds with Sonic and his team. When Super Sonic began to die from a loss of Chaos energy, Ebony helped him to recharge by bringing him to face the monstrous Perfect Chaos, confident that the power would not bring back his insane rage. When Super Sonic was transformed back into a raging demon, Sonic convinced her to rejoin the two hedgehogs once more.

Ebony has also appeared in Sonic the Comic Online, the unofficially official continuation to the series; first accompanying Sonic and Porker Lewis to the bottom of the sea to recover the sunken Floating Island, and then on the island itself to purge eight thousand years of fear and pain from the memories of Tikal the Echidna.

Fabian Vane

A recurring comic-relief character in the post-#100 issues, Fabian Vane is the worst singer that ever lived. He was a major star until Amy and Tekno uncovered how much money he owed to various debtors for writing his songs, designing his clothes, plastic surgery et al.; revealed as a fake and having to pay what he owed, he was left relying on his fans to support him - just as the new hot star Peter Android debuted. Fabian tried time and again to make a comeback, including faking his own kidnapping, and took many rubbish jobs and became a major annoyance for the Freedom Fighters. Finally, a group of Mobians encouraged him to use the Eternity Ring to spread his music to other worlds, hoping to ensure he'd be gone from Mobius forever, but Amy and Tekno saved him.


Fleabyte

Fleabyte is a bounty hunting anthropomorphic cat who speaks with a Texan dialect. Though he believed Dr. Robotnik to be a "fair and glorious ruler" while the villain ruled Mobius, he appears to have no actual links to the doctor, like B.A.R.F. or Metamorphia, but instead is free-lance. While good at his job, Fleabyte is not very intelligent. He has a robotic arm that he can pick locks with. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Fleabyte The Bounty Hunter.

Fleabyte pursued Tails twice; first in the story Fox On The Run (STC 73-76), where he ran into Tails and a mouse named Tantrum in the Flower Zone. While Tails and Tantrum fought their way though a trap filled underground cavern, Fleabyte simply tracked their heat signals from above and when the two emerged, apprehended them. Unfortunately for him, he made a mistake in not tying Tails' tails and Tails flew in the air, dragging Fleabyte with him. Although he fell some distance after shooting through the rope, Fleabyte landed on his feet (as cats 'always do') and took Tantrum hostage. Tantrum's incredibly loud voice caused nearby rocks to fall and knock the cat out and the two escaped. Fleabyte's only other appearance was Fleatbyte Returns (STC 80), another Tails story. Having lost all his money in the Casino Night Zone, Fleabyte captured Tails only to be captured himself by Commander Brutus' Trooper forces. Tails and Fleabyte worked together to escape, and once free Fleabyte tried to trap Tails again. Tails caught him this time and tied him in his own net. Fleabyte was not seen again.

Grimer

Grimer.

Grimer is Robotnik's lab assistant, a green-skinned Igor-type character who bears the brunt of much of his master's wrath. Grimer is shown to be the main technical genius in Robotnik's organization (comparable to Robotnik himself), and in this universe was the main force behind creating the Metallix robots (see Metal Sonic). Indeed, the Metallix robots were created by Grimer, even in an alternate reality in which Robotnik had never existed. Image File history File linksMetadata Grimmer33. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Grimmer33. ... This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedias deletion policy. ... Metal Sonic ) is the fictional robotic counterpart and a rival of video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. ...


Grimer was pathologically loyal to Robotnik, willingly taking all the abuse meted out to him and staying at his side throughout. When he was briefly left in charge of the Metropolis Zone, he was as draconian as possible in order arrest many citizens (for crimes such as being outside during the 5:00pm curfew that was announced at 5:05 and having 'longer than regulation' ears) so Robotnik would be pleased. When driven to help Robotnik, he has proven to be a very competent and dangerous enemy: when imprisoned, he secretly took over the jail and used it as a base of operations to launch multiple assaults on Sonic and to hack the Kintobor computer.


Several times he was in positions where he could have become an independent villain but he always remained loyal to Robotnik - when Robotnik was overthrown (and Grimer was still free), he rescued his master from his trial; he pretended to defect to the Drakon Empire as part of Robotnik's grand plan when he could've just as easily genuinely defected; and when Robotnik was shrunk to the size of an atom, Grimer plotted tirelessly from behind the scenes to retrieve him. His only act of weakness occurred when Robotnik attempted to kill the entire planet; realising this included him, Grimer helped the Freedom Fighters. However, he returned to his master's side immediately afterwards. The Drakon Empire are a group of fictional antagonists from the British publication, Sonic the Comic. ... Shanazar is a planet from Sonic the Comic in which a run of stories was set from issue #149 to #165. ...


Trying to cheer up Robotnik, who was left depressed after his plan to kill Mobius had failed, Grimer released Chaos. In the following story, Grimer realised his master had gone suicidally insane when he found out Robotnik's new plan consisted of summoning the Chaos creature to the Chaos Emeralds and watching Mobius die in the process. Grimer finally snapped, calling his old boss crazy and quitting his service. In the online continuation of Sonic the Comic, it is revealed Grimer, feeling guilty and depressed, has built a Robotnik robot and spends his days pretending his master is still sane.

Trivia

He is named after Gríma Wormtongue from The Lord of the Rings, and an editorial error in #178 gave "Grimer Wormtongue" as his full name. On the sonicthecomic Yahoo mailing list, Nigel Kitching has revealed that originally Snively was going to be Robotnik's assistant as he thought that he was required to use the character (as the television cartoon was debuting); when Kitching discovered he didn't have to, he created Grimer instead. The script for "Girl Trouble Part One", Grimer's first appearance, has all his lines attributed to Snively. In J. R. R. Tolkiens novel The Lord of the Rings, Gríma (Wormtongue) is the chief advisor to King Théoden of Rohan. ... This article is about the novel. ... Snively, as he appeared in the SatAM cartoon. ...


Hobson and Choy

A pair of criminal escapees from the Drakon Empire, Hobson and Choy made a single appearance in a two-part story of the same name. Choy, a small, cowardly purple beaver, is allegedly the brains behind the pair; his partner, a hulking, super-strong blue walrus named Hobson, is the muscle.


Slated for execution by the Drakon authorities, the pair staged an escape. While Hobson subdued their guards, Choy was able to activate a Drakon Sword, opening a portal to the planet Mobius through which they escaped. Materialising in Doctor Robotnik's hidden base on Flickies' Island, the pair were easily coerced into the villain's service ("They were easier to fool than Knuckles was!") when he informed them that he was a heroic rebel and Sonic was simply a cover identity for an evil dictator named Super Sonic. The pair left to confront Sonic at the Emerald Hill Zone, where they were quickly beaten. Fleeing back to Robotnik's base, they were not seen again during the run of the comic. Knuckles the Echidna ) is a video game character within the Sonic the Hedgehog fictional universe of video games, television shows and comics. ...


The duo made a reappearance in Sonic the Comic Online, an online continuation of the cancelled STC series. They work for the Kane Broadcasting Company, working as "investigative reporters" for a televised smear campaign intended to ruin Sonic's image. They still believe Sonic is a cover for Super Sonic.


King Sonic

In an alternate reality where it was Sonic that had the ROCC accident instead of Kintobor, King Sonic was a ruthless dictator who controlled an Orwellian-style Mobius with an iron fist. He looks identical to Sonic, but wears a red cape and crown. Little information is given about him, but he appears to command a large army of Badniks and resides in a dark castle built in his image.

His constant foes are his worlds Freedom Fighters, led by Amy Rose and Tails.

Given the reversed nature of Sonic in this dimension, 'King Super Sonic' was not evil like the mainstream version, instead appearing as a pacifist. It may be worth noting that this benign Super Sonic lacked scarlet spirals in the place of pupils, unlike his malevolent counterpart.

In the book Sonic the Hedgehog in the Fourth Dimension, an alternate-past Sonic has the same accident and is transformed into "Cinos the Anti-Sonic", with an inverted colour scheme and a personality rather like the STC Super Sonic.


Kintobor

Dr. Ovi Kintobor is a fictional character from Sonic the Comic and related British publications, who originally attempted to absorb all of Mobius' evil into the Chaos Emeralds (for more detail, see Robotnik). He plays a prominent role in the backstory of Sonic the Hedgehog, having provided Sonic with his red-and-white sneakers and facilitated his transformation from a brown, prickly hedgehog to his current, streamlined, blue look. He is even more important in the history of Dr. Robotnik, as an accident involving the Emerald's (and a rotten egg) transformed him into the evil doctor prior to the first issue of the series. Being rather more slight than Dr. Robotnik, Kintobor coincidentally resembles the later canonical character of Gerald Robotnik. The Chaos Emeralds, as depicted in Sonic Advance from a side view. ...

Nevertheless, Kintobor continued to play a role in the series in the form of the computer used by the Freedom Fighters. In an early issue, Sonic explained to Tails that he merely used a hologram of Kintobor's head to help him access some restricted files on Kintobor's personal computer, but this was soon retconned, and for much of the series' run the computer was Kintobor himself, his personality and brainwaves having been preserved on a single gold ring. He loyally served as the Freedom Fighter's computer for the duration of the series, though he was briefly hacked into and turned evil by Grimer.

Kintobor appeared twice more in later issues of the comic, in person. The first instance of this was during a scheme by the Brotherhood of Metallix to erase Robotnik from history, and thus allow Metallix to take over the whole of Mobius. Only Sonic the Hedgehog was preserved from the original timeline, and he discovered that it had been Robotnik's associate Grimer that had constructed Metallix, and that Robotnik's contribution had been the installation of a self-destruct device, which could have kept the Metallix in check. Sonic then found himself in the unenviable position of having to travel back in time and actually cause the accident that first turned Kintobor into Robotnik.

Kintobor later appeared on the planet Shanazar. Once Robotnik had been drained of some temporary powers (possibly Chaos radiation) granted by the Chaos Emeralds, he shrank to subatomic size and found himself on Shanazar. Here he transformed into Kintobor and was taken on as the vizier of Princess Kupacious. Unfortunately, he found that his transformation back into Kintobor was not permanent, and developed an elixir to keep Robotnik "at bay", but this ultimately failed and Robotnik regained control (possibly because he absorbed background Chaos radiation). Shanazar is a planet from Sonic the Comic in which a run of stories was set from issue #149 to #165. ...


In the "unofficially official" online continuation, STC-Online!, Kintobor appeared once more in flashback, it was revealed he had accidentally ended up on Mobius while on the way to the supermarket. It was shown he'd found the six Chaos Emeralds in a hollow hill in the Emerald Hill Zone, along with a cache of Echidna-Drakon war detritus and an experimental chaos-energy being dubbed Shadow. As well as researching the Emeralds and making contact with the Equinox Crocodile Research Team in the Special Zone (as well as the Omni-Viewer), he tutored Shadow. Due to his transformation into Robotnik and subsequent insanity, Shadow later resurfaced with the intention of following his friend's last wish - to kill the world.

The Marxio Brothers were three electricians who came from 'Marxio World', a place they are terrified of (most likely poking fun at the 'horror' of being in a Mario or Nintendo game and not a Sonic Universe) who became agents of Dr. Robotnik running his 'commercial ventures'. TVA electricians, Tennessee, 1942. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


They debuted running the Casino Night Zone in 'Casino Night' (STC 18) where they were scamming Mobians using hypnosis to make them compulsive gamblers. In 'Carnival Night Conspiracy' (STC 39-44) the Brothers had another theme park, this time the Carnival Night Zone being built on the Floating Island as another money-maker for Robotnik; initially they managed to convince Knuckles Robotnik wasn't involved and that he could use the money from the Zone to renovate the older Zones on the island, and an attempt at killing him on a roller coaster convinced him to let them stay ("I loved the ride!"). The Guardian found them out anyway (due to Chicio's incompetence), and he split the Carnival Night Zone from the Floating Island to drop to Mobius below. Angel Island (formerly called the Floating Island) is a fictional island floating high in the air in the world of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. ...


Following Robotniks' removal from power, the Marxio Brothers convinced the Mobian authorities that Robotnik had duped them and were able to buy the Chemical Plant Zone, with the intent of making it environmentally friendly. They called Sonic in because of a problem that they felt might cause the zone to detonate, which turned out to be Megatox; whether or not this was a deliberate trap for Sonic is left unknown, though the Marxios denied it.


The Marxio Brothers also star in a series of Mobian video games as seen in STC #26, which Sonic isn't a fan of - "who cares about the adventures of three electricians?"


In the unofficial continuation of Sonic the Comic, Chicio appears in #239, being interviewed for a tabloid smear campaign against Sonic; there was a small cameo before this for the game Super Marxio Sunshine. Super Mario Sunshine ) is a 3-D platform game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. ...


Max Gamble

Max Gamble is a money-obsessed stereotypical gangster based out of the Casino Night Zone and running many casinos, as well as various dangerous fly-by-night enterprises. He is so obsessed with money that when Tails was defending the Zone from being exterminated by Commander Brutus, Gamble threatened violence against him unless Tails did it quicker so people would go back to his casinos. He would later try to have Tails killed for humiliating him, as well as loyally helping Robotnik turn people into Badniks. Commander Brutus was a character in the UKs Sonic the Comic. ...


When Robotnik was overthrown, he made a bid to have his mob assume control over the whole Zone; Tails rallied the citizens against him, and the mobsters themselves turned on him when it was revealed Gamble was sending money to Robotnik. He and his criminal activities would occasionally pop up to harass the Freedom Fighters, including running holidays to Robotnik's old Flickies Island base (which nearly killed several people) before he was finally forced to go on the run. He used the Eternity Ring to escape Mobius and ended up in a world shaped by people's thoughts; he created a world based around gangster films to amuse himself before Amy Rose and Tekno took him down. Amy Rose ), once known as Rosy the Rascal, is a video game character who appears in many of the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games developed by Segas Sonic Team. ... The Freedom Fighters were first formed in STC issue 8, The Origin Of Sonic, which sparked off the status-quo of Mobius being ruled by Robotnik until the 100th issue. ...


In Sonic the Comic Online, he has become a lackey for the Insect Family crime organisation.


Megatox

Megatox.

Megatox was a scientist working for Robotnik on a chemical called Mega Mack, the pink liquid that floods the Chemical Plant Zone in Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and is designed to kill Sonic, but the compartment he was working in was flooded with the poisonous substance. By some quirk of fate the scientist, instead of dying, became one with the Mega Mack, and as Megatox he haunted the sewer systems of the Chemical Plant Zone. He faced Sonic early into the hedgehog's rebellion against Robotnik (issue 10); unable to defeat him with simple violence, Sonic drained him from the tunnels he was fighting him in and dispersed him over wasteland. Image File history File linksMetadata Mrtox. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Mrtox. ... Sonic the Hedgehog 2, or simply Sonic 2, is a platform game developed by Sonic Team in collaboration with Sega Technical Institute, and published by Sega for the Mega Drive/Genesis. ...


Megatox returned much later, when Robotnik had been overthrown and the Marxio Brothers had bought the Zone. The Marxios asked Sonic and Tails to check out strange happenings in the Zone, which turned out to be Megatox charging himself up to be blown out of the chemical plant and dump himself all over Emerald Hill Zone, leaving it uninhabitable. Annoyingly for Megatox, Sonic had forgotten who he was and even when he remembered he manages to get his name wrong. Megatox was more powerful now, able to change from liquid to solid state and back again. Sonic, despite being heavily poisoned by Mega Mack, deduces that Megatox has to be solid to hit him and manages to attack him a split second before contact. This defeated Megatox, and he was swept up and removed by the Marxios.


Megatox's last appearances was as one of the enemies that Robotnik, in his god-like state, resurrected to battle Sonic in Showdown (issue 130).


Megatox can bend the Mega Mack around him to his will, shooting it at high pressure and splitting his consciousness into multiple Mega Mack 'bodies'.


Nigel Kitching once revealed that Megatox was only brought back at the request of his son.


Mesmer

Mesmer.

Mesmer the Goat, was an agent working for of Dr. Robotnik with a 'talent for hypnosis'. He used a large staff with a ruby red jewel to control a whole village into thinking that they were worshippers of an Ancient Sun Goddess, as a test of his powers, in the Knuckles the Echidna Story 'Village Of The Damned' (STC 85-86). Image File history File linksMetadata Mesmr. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Mesmr. ... Dr. Eggman as seen on Sonic X.

Knuckles the Echidna ) is a video game character within the Sonic the Hedgehog fictional universe of video games, television shows and comics. ...


When Knuckles stumbled upon the village, Robotnik (watching from a disguise as a Tavern Landlord, a chicken) used the ruse as an attempt to kill the guardian, by having Mesmer convince the townspeople that they needed to sacrifice him to their god, shortly before being sacrificed Knuckles deduced what was happening and took Mesmer's staff from him, using it to break the spell.


Knuckles was, at the time, on a journey back from Mobius to the Floating Island, and after an explanation from Robotnik, he left. Mesmer was never used again.


Note: though Knuckles used the staff, and Robotnik revealed he intended to use Mesmer to control the whole populace of Mobius, the staff was never smashed.


Metamorphia

Metamorphia stands proud.

Metamorphia is a female 'shape shifter', able to both transform herself into anything she wanted and change parts of her body independly of the rest of it, such as turning her hand into an anvil or blade. Metamorphia was created by Dr. Robotnik and idolised & loved him (her room in #52 has self-drawn pictures of him on the wall), desperate to please him and have her feelings reciprocated. She failed every attempt to destroy Sonic The Hedgehog and his freedom fighters, and when not in battle appeared to be very insecure and self-conscious.

Sonic the Hedgehog ), trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog,[4] is a video game character and the hero of a video game series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, cartoons and books. ...


Sonic first met Metamorphia when she, posing as a sweet bear, lured him into a trap in The Grim Zone, where Sonic thought she had perished after falling into one of the Zone's fiery pits, she in fact assumed a fire proof form and survived. Metamorphia returned in the guise of a rival green hedgehog named Cosmic, who challenged Sonic to a race, once lured away from help and the Green Hill Zone, Metamorphia revealed herself and attacked him, only to be defeated again (# 30 & 31). She would resurface pretending to be Sonic's long-lost twin Tonic, though her cover was quickly blown and she was easily defeated by the Freedom Fighters (#51 & 52).

Metamorphia's happy ending.

Metamorphia's fall from grace occurred in The Cybernik Strikes Back (issues 63-67); while she was able to defeat Shortfuse the Cybernik and capture Tekno, she failed to stop them detonating a large part of the Chemical Plant Zone. As punishment, Robotnik removed her shape-shifting powers and had her turned into a Badnik. Sometime later Tails was attacked in the Grim Zone by the Badnik Metamorphia, angrily blaming Tails and the other Freedom Fighters for making her like this. Once the Badnik was destroyed and Metamorphia was free, sobbing that she had failed again, she turned her back on being evil and said that she now hated Robotnik. Suddenly Metamorphia then experienced one last final change into a sweet bear (not much different from the form she took in her first appearance) and left to live a new life (#83). Image File history File linksMetadata Metafinal. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Metafinal. ...


Metamorphia was one of the enemies that Robotnik, in his god-like state, resurrected to battle Sonic in Showdown (issue 130), though this was not the real Metamorphia.


Notes: Exactly what species Metamorphia was is unknown. Her final form was a anthropomorphic bear and in her debut she also resembled a bear, however after, she looked much more like an evil cat similar to Cam from B.A.R.F. Regardless, she is now a bear.


Nack the Weasel

For his appearance in the Archie Sonic comic series, see Nack the Weasel, and for his appearances in the games, see Fang the Sniper.
Nack the Weasel in Sonic the Comic

Nack used to be a member of the Chaotix Crew, but betrayed them to the Brotherhood of Metallix for money. The Metallix then betrayed him in turn, but he'd come prepared with a neural disruptor gun. He was however blasted in the back before he could use it (Knuckles later took and used it instead), and spent the next few months in a prison hospital. He broke out and appeared sporadically throughout the comic, working solely for financial gain either through mercenary work or robbing banks/ancient treasures, and he twice battled the Chaotix. This article is about the comic book itself, not the character. ... This articles is for minor villains from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, appearing in the spin-off comic book published by Archie Comics. ... In the fictional universes of the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games, there are a significant number of villains present. ... Image File history File links Sonic_Comic_Nack. ...

The Chaotix are a group of fictional characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games. ... Metal Sonic ) is the fictional robotic counterpart and a rival of video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. ...


His character was said to be a scientific genius, as shown with his development of the neural disruptor and knowledge of how to hack the Omni-Viewer, with the main focus in the comic being on his use of shrinking objects. He first used a shrink ray in order to shrink down echidna treasures in the Sandopolis Zone so he could more easily steal them & then re-expand them before hopefully selling them on. He later developed gas cartridges that let him shrink and grow objects, people and even himself. He used this several times for combat purposes but on both occasions he was defeated. The Chaotix are a group of fictional characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games. ...


He finally teamed up with Robotnik's loyal lackey Grimer, developing a belt-like device that could shrink people down to sub-molecular levels. It is never officially stated why he did this, but it is assumed he was paid, or promised payment, by Grimer. Using this, he and Grimer intended to retrieve Robotnik (who had been shrunken to these levels and was presumed dead); in the process, they came across the sub-molecular, mystical world of Shanazar. Nack would eventually help Robotnik not only return to Mobius but also merge it with Shanazar in the process, after which he was never seen again. Oddly, after having such a crucial role in starting the Shanazar run of stories, Nack never really had much of a role in those stories. Nigel Kitching, as revealed on the sonicthecomic Yahoo group, revealed that he originally planned to have Sonic chase after Nack through Shanazar so he could use his belt device to return to Mobius, but he was fired off the comic before that could happen (he was rehired by a later editor). Shanazar is a planet from Sonic the Comic in which a run of stories was set from issue #149 to #165. ...


In the unofficial online continuation of Sonic the Comic, Nack reappeared going on a crime spree across the city, with Tails hot on his trail. After constantly remaining one step ahead of the cops and also nearly killing Tails with a bomb, Nack was finally brought down when Tails caused his getaway plane to crash into a river. Though no body was found, he was presumed dead. In actuality, he survived. After vowing revenge on Tails, he decided to lay low for a while.

Nutzan Bolt

Nutzan Bolt is a fictional antagonist of Miles "Tails" Prower and The Flock in Sonic the Comic. FicTioNaL is a Gaming Legend. ... For other uses, see Antagonist (disambiguation). ... Miles Prower ), better known by his nickname Tails ), is a video game character in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games, comics, and animated cartoons released by Sega. ... This article is for minor Sonic the Hedgehog characters that appear exclusively in the Sonic the Comic continuity, produced by Fleetway. ... For the Archie-published comic, see Sonic the Hedgehog (comic series). ...


Nutzan Bolt was a general for Robotnik, running operations in the Chemical Plant Zone. He was originally able to pass himself off as being sensible and open to negotiation, convincing Sol Furic of the Flock that he could be worked with; Nutzan swiftly proved himself to be, in fact, a total nutter, killing with gleeful abandon and becoming enraged at the mere mention of Sonic ("he said the S-Word!"). He sported a giant muscular body, armed with neck-saws and subservient robot heads all round his neck, and his head would heat up & steam when he got enraged.


When Sonic and Tails became separated from each other at Chemical Plant, Tails accidentally ended up inside Nutzan Bolt’s lair whilst he was communicating with Robotnik. It was there that Tails overheard Nutzan’s plan to flood the surrounding Zones with Mega Mack, and the psychotic droid decided to silence him. After becoming angry at the mere mention of "the S-word!" Nutzan Bolt was distracted by a flash bomb and Tails was rescued by Sab as they fled into the sewers. Tails and the Flock attempted to prevent Nutzan and his cronies from dismantling the barrier that held the Mega Mack in place out of the other Zones, and while the Flock handled the cronies Nutzan Bolt decided to deal with the fox personally. Tails was pursued to a side entrance to the Zone, finding himself completely outmatched, and he only won by a complete fluke - because he accidentally instructing the door the close three times, the door's computer closed, opened (letting Nutzan in), closed (coming down on Nutzan as he came in), and then on its third go it decapitated the robot. However, the head sprouted wheels and Nutzan fled screaming that he would have his revenge eventually.


Nutzan Bolt managed to find himself a new body eventually, but rather than a new mechanical frame he attached himself to an invulnerable body of living ice. Nutzan Bolt became obsessed with finding Tails and began ripping apart the Zone, causing it to be frozen by chemical ice & snow which made it uninhabitable to anyone but him, and finally succeeded in killing most of the Flock. However, Sab managed to bring Tails back to the Zone and Nutzan's former ally Sol Furic defected to their side. Together the three of them emerged on the surface and fought Nutzan Bolt in his new Ice Palace. They were easily dispatched and Tails was on the verge of being killed when he accidentally managed to say Sonic's name several times in succession; Nutzan's head overheated with rage, causing his body to melt. Reduced once again to just his head, Nutzan Bolt decided to finish off his enemies by melting the Ice Palace - which, of course, meant he drowned. He was never salvaged.


Sab

Sab was the leader of the freedom fighters group The Flock, based in The Chemical Plant Zone and against its tyrannical overlord Nutzan Bolt. She was one of the many sheep living in the Zone before it was turned into the Chemical Plant. She and her partner Sol Furic had fought side by side, until Sol defected to Nutzan Bolt thinking that the robot could be worked with to improve the Zone. Nutzan Bolt is a fictional antagonist of Miles Tails Prower in the British publication, Sonic the Comic. ...


Sab first appearing in the second part of the Tails' story Zonerunner and The Flock (issue 36). It is she who dubs Tails a Zonerunner, a freedom fighter who travels between Zones fighting Robotnik; Tails has repeatedly protested against this but this has fallen on deaf ears. While a strong and capable leader, Sab seemed to fail to notice Tails actually only succeeded by accident throughout the whole story.

Sab returns

In Tails' next encounter with her, all of the Flock were thought to have been murdered in an explosion at the hands of Sol Furic. Sab had survived and, despite initial misunderstanding, it turned out Sol was innocent and wanted to turn against Nutzan. With Sab and Sol's help, Tails managed to destroy Nutzan Bolt for good, melting the chemical ice that had crippled the Chemical Plant Zone. Image File history File linksMetadata Sabs. ... Image File history File linksMetadata Sabs. ...


Sab & Sol were not used again, though the Chemical Plant Zone has reappeared several times; in its return appearances, it bore little resemblance to the Zonerunner stories.


Unlike the regular freedom fighters, who all appear in their teens, Sab and the Flock appear much older.


Tikal

Tikal, by Richard Elson.

Born in the ancient past, Tikal was the daughter of the Echidna's spiritual leader Pochacamac during the war against the Drakon Empire. Their power was gifted with the ability to see glimpses of the future, and they were able to see Sonic would serve as a champion in the future against the Drakon Empire. Using the power of the Chaos Emeralds, Tikal transported Sonic into the ancient past to assist them. However, when a Drakon assault on Megapolis City inadvertently created the monster Chaos, Sonic had to be sent back to the future to prevent him from being killed. Tikal had time enough to ask Sonic what happened to the Echidnas but he was unable to bring himself to tell her they no longer existed in his time. Image File history File links Tikalfleetway. ... Ancient Echidna warriors as seen in Echidnas in the video game, comic book, and television series fiction of Sonic the Hedgehog, are anthropomorphic, dreadlocked animals that stand out from the other humanoid animals. ... The Drakon Empire are a group of fictional antagonists from the British publication, Sonic the Comic. ... The Chaos Emeralds, as depicted in Sonic Advance from a side view. ... Chaos ) is a fictional character and the main antagonist in the video game Sonic Adventure for the Sega Dreamcast. ...


In Sonic the Comic Online, it was discovered that when the Echidnas imprisoned Chaos, Tikal's spirit was accidentally trapped within him. She spent 8000 years trapped in a state of constant fear until her spirit was able to pass into Sonic (due to his briefly being submerged in Chaos) and through Chaos energy exposure she gained physical form. Tikal decided to remain on the Floating Island, but the memory of her torment soon became so prominent there was a real danger of her being driven insane. Ebony the witch had to erase Tikal's memories to save her, with the side effect of erasing most of her memories of ancient times. Knuckles has tried to bring back her memories by taking her to the ruins of Megapolis City, which lead to her being involved in a battle against Rouge and an encounter with the King of Ghosts. This article is for fictional characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise that appear exclusively in the Sonic the Comic continuity, produced by Fleetway. ... Rouge the Bat is a video game character in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, who is a determined treasure hunter and part-time government agent who plans to make all the gems and treasures of the world hers. ...

Recently, she revisited an old Echidna shrine and encountered countless ghosts of murdered Echidnas; this has led to an increasing amount of premonitions about a returning entity named Vichama. She has also been having problems interacting with Knuckles, who is unable to connect with her socially. In #242, Vichama made his presence felt and both Tikal & Knuckles are attempting to stop him.


Vermin the Cybernik

Vermin first appeared in #90, and was created by Lew Stringer and Roberto Corona. Originally an anonymous anthropomorphic rat, he was an informant for the Freedom Fighters but betrayed them to Robotnik out of the desire to be a Cybernik. He proved to be a vicious thug and bully in his armour, relishing the power and the ability to do damage to weaker Mobians. As well as superhuman strength and indestrutible metal armour, he shoots laser from his eyes and his tail can inject a crippling computer virus.


He lured the Freedom Fighters into a trap in the Gum Tree Zone, defeated Shortfuse the Cybernik and almost wiped out the team in his first appearance; only by using the Zone's natural resources was Amy Rose able to force Vermin to retreat. He clashed once more with Shortfuse at a later date, this time losing after the desire to beat him consumed the hero. He then was part of Grimer's Badnik army sent in to put down a Metropolis Zone uprising, cornering the Freedom Fighters and only being defeated when Super Sonic's EM pulse offlined his armour. This article is for minor characters that appear exclusively in the Sonic the Comic continuity, produced by Fleetway. ... This article is about super transformation in the comics and TV shows. ...


Vermin was incarcerated after Robotnik was defeated but broke out at New Year's Eve. Going on one last rampage, he battled Shortfuse for a final time; attempting to use his computer virus on his enemy, it was his armour that became infected with a program that caused it to open up. Shortfuse destroyed the armour while it was vulnerable, leaving Vermin as a regular criminal.


In Sonic the Comic Online, Vermin is locked up in the same asylum as Robotnik. He is wearing a replica of his Cybernik armour (which may be why he's in the asylum).


Vichama, The God of Death

A character unique to Sonic the Comic Online, the 'unofficially official' continuation of Sonic the Comic, Vichama appeared early on in the series run as the partner of Dr. Zachary and a member of his Syndicate, helping to use the Chaos Emeralds to literally blow up Mobius. He was seemingly a superpowered mass murderer from ancient times, sealed away by the Ancient Echidnas of Mobius before being freed by Zachary eight millennia later. A tall, muscular and imposing echidna, Vichama served as added muscle and showed both an eager desire for slaughter & a boredom with the more convoluted parts of Zachary's plot. When Zachary's plot was thwarted, he abandoned him (deliberately knocking him out) and, referring to himself as 'the God of Death', used the Chaos Emeralds to escape his "shell". At this point, a malign, shapeless entity abandoned the echidna body, leaving it shrivelled and lifeless.


A solo story featuring Tikal, taking place halfway through the Syndicate story, involved her visit to an ancient temple on the Floating Island known as The Place of Voices. She encountered countless mournful spirits, Vichama's victims from the past, bearing grave tidings of his return. As she leaves after the incident, a prophetic sentence carved into a nearby rock declares that "Vichama is coming home". It was later revealed she was having an increasing number of premonitions of Vichama.


Issue 242 began a 4-part Knuckles story titled Vichama. It was confirmed that Vichama is a literal God of Death in Echidna mythology and that the temple Tikal visited had been built over his old temple. Vichama's temple manifested on the Floating Island once more, and whole Zones across Mobius suddenly died leaving scrawled messages of Vichama's return. In #243 Vichama appeared in full glory, summoning armies of ghosts and living dead. After revealing his plan was simply to kill the world - "I'm the God of Death, mate, what do you think my plan is?" - he murdered Knuckles with a single blast.
