Role

Manic plays the drums in the band of the three siblings Sonia, Sonic, and himself. Like his siblings, he possesses an amulet resembling a musical instrument (in Manic's case, a drumkit) that doubles as a weapon when the three of them are in harmony.


Manic's character is a pickpocket, placing him in the lowest role of growing up for the siblings: Sonic lived in an average home, while Sonia lived like a princess. When their mother was forced to separate them, his basket was stolen and brought to the thief, Ferral, who raised Manic to be a thief. Though Sonia has a distaste for Manic's lifestyle (and his tolerance for sewers), his thieving skills and mastery with computers and machines is greatly needed. Manic seems to be the only one of the three that can pick locks, get away with stealing, and hack into computers. While he gets defensive when his old background is criticised, he grew up without ever feeling he had a real home until he met his siblings. Manic is the "laid back" sibling, and slangs sometimes in the show. Najila is a princess Princess is the feminine form of prince (from Latin princeps, meaning principal citizen). ...


Manic possesses neither his brother's super speed nor his sister's strength. However, when used properly, his drumset can control the earth, creating seismic activity under Manic's direction. According to the Oracle, his drums are the most powerful weapon of the three. He rides on an airboard which also like a surfboard. A surfer carries a surfboard along the beach. ...


Manic the Performer

Manic, of course, plays the drums in Sonic Underground. He can twirl his sticks with his left hand (later eps. show right), twirl both sticks in his right hand (shown twice), and throw them in the air and catch them like what most drummers do. His sticks are small, and "bend".


Manic's singing voice was done by Phil Hayes. His voice is smoother (in the French shows it was scratchy like Sonic's in the American), and can go pretty high (Working Together In Harmony, Fun In The Sun). Phil Hayes (born in England, United Kingdom) is an American voice actor and comedian who has done much voice work. ...


However, for some reason, in the episode "Sleepers", Manic's speaking voice is lower than normal.


Archie comics

In the Archie comics continuity, there is a character called Manic (or "Manik" as he is called in the comic) that is the future child of Sonic the Hedgehog by Princess Sally and appeared in the miniseries "Mobius: 25 Years Later". He is, for the most part, unconnected to the Manic of Sonic Underground. However in the alternate Mobius: 25 Years Later he along with his sister ceased to exist. This Manic did not look like his Underground namesake, instead appearing as a younger duplicate of his father Sonic. Manic has a younger counterpart in the future from which Sally's computer NICOLE originated, and both possess the power of super speed.
