[[folder: The Heroes]]
!!Sonic the Hedgehog
->'''Voiced by:''' Jaleel White

* {{Adorkable}}: He's sometimes shown to have such moments.
* {{Badbutt}}: He has a stereotypical young man's attitude from the 80's and the 90's who lives to the extreme, being overactive, slightly sarcastic and cheeky and using TotallyRadical phrases. In truth he is pretty mild compared to other characters.
* BerserkButton: Calling him slow really seems to tick him off.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Probably the most emphasized usage of any Sonic incarnation. He looks out for Tails constantly and regularly goes frantic the moment something happens to him.
* BloodKnight: One of the nicer examples. He always loves a good challenge and fighting (without killing) Robotnik, but the moment Robotnik (falsely) claims that he has given up his life of crime, Sonic accepts it though a bit disappointed and hopes to find something equally exciting.
* CatchPhrase: "Up, over and gooone!", "I'm waaaaiiiiiiitiiiiiing…", "Gotta speed, keed!", "You got it ace - let's race!" amongst other [[RhymesOnADime rhyming phrases]].
* ChickMagnet: Tends to have a lot of fangirls.
* TheChosenOne: He was apparently prophesied to save the kingdom featured in "Hedgehog of the Hound Table", if the legend of the Holy Hedgehog is any indication.
* ComicallyInvincibleHero: Handily outsmarts and overpowers Robotnik and his goons for Laughs. There are occasional points the joke's over and Robotnik gives Sonic a rough time however.
* {{Determinator}}: Even the odd time his foes give him a genuine challenge, Sonic is not one to back down.
* FriendlyEnemy: He at least ''tries'' to keep Robotnik's henchbots from hurting themselves in the "Sonic Says" segments.
* GuileHero: Achieves victory through his wits just as often as his speed.
%%%% TheProtagonist is different from TheHero.
%%%* TheHero:
* HeroicRROD: Very rarely, but yes, Sonic ''can'' be tired out. Exploited for Robotnik's EvilPlan in "Mass Transit Trouble".
* HiddenDepths: As corny as the Sonic Says segments are, he shows this at times in them. In one he talks about how great reading is, and in many others, he shows genuine concern for the safety of children.
* KarmicTrickster: The show nudges Sonic's characterization into this category, where he uses all sorts of mental tricks and misdirection to deflate Robotnik's plans.
* TheKirk: This incarnation of Sonic enjoys adrenaline-inducing activities like his games counterpart, but is shown to take rules and responsibility seriously, as is shown in the Sonic Says segments and his relationship with Tails. Many of his antics are also [[KarmicTrickster intellectual]] as well as physical.
* KnightInShiningArmor: Takes up the mantle of the legendary "Holy Hedgehog" in "Hedgehog of the Hound Table".
* MrViceGuy: Occasional overconfidence.
* PaperThinDisguise: Much of Sonic's disguises are this. One's just Sonic with a hat and a bag of mail, and they fall for it.
** Lampshaded by Sonic when, to his alarm, sufficient doses of downloaded ninjutsu allow Scratch and Grounder to see through a disguise.
*** Also in the episode Grounder the Genius twice. The first time Sonic visits the fortress as a "Chip Recycler" and looks for the genius chip. Grounder says he has it which Sonic tries to get him, however, Grounder, now being a genius, petrifies him aware that this would happen. Another example is later where Grounder makes out a trap and tosses it away far before anything bad happens. Sonic takes off his disguise and Grounder states he already knew Sonic was going to pull that.
** At one point, Sonic even [[BreakingTheFourthWall winks at the audience]] while showing himself through disguise.
** In "Too Tall Tails" Sonic actually takes off his disguise midway through one of his schemes. Scratch and Grounder ''still don't recognize him''!
*** Dr. Robotnik actually does manage to see through the majority of Sonic's disguises, however the few times he does it is either a few moments too late, or he's too far away to tell Grounder and Scratch, the ones typically being tricked.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Tails, who happily accepts that Sonic's his "mom, dad, and picket-fence".
* TheProtagonist: As the main focal character of the series, Sonic's story begins and ends with him.
* RaceLift: Type 5. Simply put, Jaleel White [[ButNotTooBlack didn't want Sonic to sound too black.]]
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Downplayed. Without his shoes, Sonic cannot use his SuperSpeed without burning his feet which means he has all the necessary secondary powers for super speed except "feet durable enough to withstand extreme heat caused by friction".
* RhymesOnADime: Whenever he gets ready for action he uses one of his catchphrases that qualify.
* SharpDressedMan: Sonic in some of his disguises counts for this.
* SmugSuper: At times. You could argue that this is his biggest character flaw though he isn't mean about it, he can be condescending towards non-powered individuals in other words, everyone else.
%%* TeenGenius: Sonic has his moments of this.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Sonic often eats chili-dogs.
* WalkingTheEarth: His home is never shown and he travels a lot.

!! Miles "Tails" Prower
->'''Voiced by:''' Christopher Stephen Welch

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the games, his fur is orange. Here, it's brown (Which is actually TruthInTelevision, as real-life fox kits are born with brown fur that turns orange as they get older).
* AdaptationalWimp: While he was just as capable as Sonic in the games, here, he's the DesignatedVictim and gets kidnapped by Robotnik at least OnceAnEpisode.
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* BalloonBelly: A natural result of his eating habits is ending up with one. The most memorable one is in ''Boogie-Mania''.
* BigEater: It's even a major plot-point in one episode, where he keeps getting bigger and bigger the more he eats (and the bigger he gets, the hungrier he gets).
* BrattyHalfPint: [[DependingOnTheWriter Sometimes.]] He can be self-centered and complaining as little kids can be and led by his vices, his gluttony most frequently.
* ChildProdigy: Keeps up with Sonic, [[ADayintheLimelight saves the day on occasion]], built a flying bicycle from scrap, studies the Big Bang in kindergarten — and is four-and-a-half years old.
* [[CoolBigSis Cool Little Bro]]: So very much. The series emphasises this relationship more than any other.
* DesignatedVictim: He gets kidnapped at least OnceAnEpisode.
* DoNotCallMePaul: In "Tails' New Home", Sonic threatening to reveal his real name Miles is enough to get him to leave while Sonic deals with Scratch and Grounder.
* GadgeteerGenius: Not as prominent as his video game counterpart (though this was at the time when the game series was still fairly new. With only three games out at the time), but he has his moments.
* GirlsHaveCooties: What he believes. It's actually helpful from time to time.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Not a surprise, considering that his big brother figure and idol is a superhero.
%%* KidSidekick
%%* TheLancer: To Sonic's TheHero.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: You can count the times he's called "Miles" on one hand. This actually becomes a plot point in "Tails' New Home", when a couple appears claiming to be his parents. Sonic eventually realizes that, if they were really his parents, they shouldn't have been calling him Tails; they should have been calling him Miles.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Chili dogs, except he prefers his with extra cheese.

[[folder: The Badniks]]
!! Dr. Ivo Robotnik
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings (Pilot), Long John Baldry

* AbusiveParents: Momma Robotnik.
* AdaptationalBadass: See MemeticBadass on the YMMV page.
* AxCrazy: While he is PlayedForLaughs most of the time, [[NotSoHarmlessVillain that still doesn't make him less dangerous.]]
* BadassMoustache: A cartoonishly long one.
* BadBoss: Robotnik [[PlayedForLaughs comically]] [[KickTheDog verbally and physically abuses]] his "metallic moron" minions on a very frequent basis. On more than a few occasions he has also [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness proved to find them]] [[YouHaveFailedMe rather dispensable as well]].
* BaldOfEvil: Sonic has frustrated Robotnik so much, he made him "Tear every hair from my [[VillainousBreakdown BEAUUUUUTIFUL HEAD!]]"
* BerserkButton: Robotnik has many. Though Sonic himself is one.
** For instance, when served hotcakes for breakfast instead of his traditional eggs:
-->'''Robotnik:''' [[SarcasmMode Hotcakes! Isn't that nice!]] You know what I like with my hotcakes? ''[grabs Scratch by the neck]''
-->'''Scratch:''' ''[nervously]'' [[OhCrap W-w-what?]]
-->'''Robotnik:''' CHOPPED CHICKEN BRAINS!
** Having his dishes smashed:
-->'''Scratch:''' ''[disheartened moan]'' Dr. Robotnik's gonna be ''very'' unhappy!
-->'''Robotnik:''' ''[walks in the kitchen doorway]'' [[FalseReassurance Robotnik isn't unhappy.]] In fact, he's... '''''[[SuddenlyShouting EXTREMELY TICKED OFF!!! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY CHINA?!]]'''''
** The nickname ''Robuttnik''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: It is often implied Robotnik is only ineffective due to Sonic. A lot of episodes show the heroes encountering civilians that have already been enslaved or terrorized by Robotnik due to Sonic not being around. Not to mention the odd occasion Robotnik even manages to get one over the hedgehog, as well as the fact that (as pointed in out in Sonic's entry) more often than not ''he can'' see through Sonic's disguises.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the series.
* BigBeautifulMan: In his own mind, at least; the chief animator paid special attention to trying to convey this, in hopes of making Robotnik "animation's sexiest fat man". Of course, the reality is that, in-universe and out, Robotnik's "sexy moments" are serious FanDisservice.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Has black sclera with [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red pupils]].
* BlackKnight: Briefly adopts this persona when attempting to overthrow King Arfur in "Hedgehog of the Round Table". He's even called the "Bloated Knight".
* ButtMonkey: Sonic pulls no punches making him ''suffer''. One of the best examples is the "Zoobotnik" episode.
* CardCarryingVillain: Played with. Sure, he [[InsultBackfire likes being called despicable]] but there are moments when he will pretend to be a hero if his plans require it. [[spoiler: An example of this would be "Over The Hill Hero", where he says to Captain Rescue "I think we can fight rotten-ness just as good as that hedgehog."]].
* CatchPhrase: He yells "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!!!" after every single defeat by Sonic.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Is this in contrast to his game counterpart.
* DastardlyWhiplash: Has some of this trope's characteristics, most notably mustache-twirling, open and two-dimensional eeevilness and bombastic diabolical laughter.
%%* DirtyCoward
* DisproportionateRetribution: Over and over again throughout the entire show.
** In one episode, he imprisoned a cartoonist just for comparing him to Humpty Dumpty.
** Also when he was in high school, he wanted attention from a girl he admired by [[MurderTheHypotenuse attempting to kill his romantic rival by strangling him with a robotic snake]] [[CrazyJealousGuy out of jealousy.]] Robotnik was then expelled after the incident, and [[StartOfDarkness started his road to villainy.]]
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Dr. Robotnik fears his mother, but he still loves her.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Loathes his cousin, Dr. Warpnik, for being a creepy, freaky, utter loony with an unsettling fixation on fish. To the point he sealed him up in a pocket dimension called the Warp of Confusion to get him out of everyone's hair.
* EvilBrit: Robotnik has a British accent and is the main villain of the series.
* EvilLaugh: Robotnik has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=II2zb1CUHmk a few utterly]] excellent ones.
* '''EvilIsHammy''': Robotnik [[UpToEleven takes it up to eleven]].
* ExaggeratedTrope: Dr. Eggman in the game's canon is also a [[EvilIsHammy hammy]], [[ManChild childish]] CardCarryingVillain, but nowhere near to the same extent as this Robotnik.
* FatBastard: He could cover the whole trope and the whole page image with his girth.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Though Robotnik's villainy is taken somewhat lightly, some of it can seem pretty extreme [[FridgeHorror when you think about it]].
* FloweryInsults: Robotnik LOVES to insult people. A lot. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjuhnuwFBQw Here's an alphabetized video of all of his insults throughout the whole series.]]
* FreudianExcuse: Dr. Robotnik is implied to have one in the form of his abusive mother, Momma Robotnik.
* GadgeteerGenius: As buffoonish as he is, most of his gadgets do what they are supposed to and are pretty damn advanced.
%%* {{Gonk}}
* HairTriggerTemper: Uh, yeah flipping out is one of his default moods.
* HotBlooded: Boiling blooded to the extent of tearing every hair out of his head and tatooing the word hatred on his teeth.
* InSeriesNickname: Sonic sometimes calls him 'Ro-butt-nik'. [[BerserkButton Predictably]], [[LargeHam Robotnik hates it]].
* {{Jerkass}}: And not just towards his enemies; he's abusive to Scratch and Grounder as well.
* KnightOfCerebus: Story dependent case. When Robotnik was active the entire episode he was usually a HarmlessVillain. When he sent his bots to do the dirty work first, they would be the first incompetent obstacle and Robotnik would reappear as a NotSoHarmless final boss.
* LackOfEmpathy
* '''LargeHam''': Oh God, yes!
* LastNameBasis: Dr. Robotnik, whose first name "Ivo" is only mentioned twice in the whole series.
* LaughablyEvil: The doctor is completely ruthless, but it's hard to find a scene he isn't hilarious. Only upped even further due to WebAnimation/YouTubePoop.
* TheMcCoy: [[HairTriggerTemper Volatile]], [[ManChild childish]], and [[LargeHam expressive]] are some of the things that can describe Robotnik. Nearly all of his motivations stem from the SevenDeadlySins.
* MrFanservice: See BigBeautifulMan above. He was ''intended'' to be this, though whereas it worked or not is... controversial.
* MyBelovedSmother: Robotnik, despite his evil nature, is completely at the mercy of his mother, who is even more demanding and has a ''really'' bad temper. He has [[TheDogBitesBack turned on her]] a couple of occasions though.
* NeverMyFault: Combined with ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem. On one occasion, he demotes Coconuts after he himself is tricked by Sonic, even though Coconuts wasn't even present at the time. As he puts it, "''I'm'' the boss! I can blame ''whoever I want''!"
* NoIndoorVoice: He has a very loud and exuberant voice, especially when he is excited or irritated.
-->'''''"[[ChewingTheScenery I don't remember programming you to beat me!!!]]"'''''
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Usually rather bumbling and defeated handily by Sonic. There are a fair few times he manages to outsmart the hedgehog and temporarily get the upper hand however. It helps he also knows just how to get under Sonic's skin (see above).
* PetTheDog: In the first Mama Robotnik episode, he shows he sincerely loves and cares for his "Fuzzy-wuzzy", the teddy bear he grew up with a child and which was his only friend. True, Fuzzy-wuzzy is a killer robot that basically turns into a creepily real grizzly with four arms and two heads, but he still loves him all the same, even begging Sonic to save Fuzzy-wuzzy from being destroyed and promising to stop his latest evil plot.
** "So Long Sucker" reveals that Robotnik still carries around a photo of his deceased pet cockroach, "Mr. Bobo", whom he was apparently quite fond of. He even sheds a few tears reminiscing.
* {{Pirate}}: In the episode of "Blackbot the Pirate". He even [[DressedtoPlunder looks the part]]. But he's mostly in it for the Chaos Emerald of Invisibility.
* PsychopathicManchild: What you get, when a tyrannical, petty, immature little man gets enough power. So immature that when he made a spelling mistake he decided to force everyone to write the word that way, instead of admitting that he was wrong.
* RoboSexual: Robotnik himself proved this when he created a robot wife.
* RoboticSpouse: Robotnik gets a couple of these for himself in a couple of episodes
* SlasherSmile: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS0AKzzD0wA&list=TLl3Ih65iLqLU Among many of his emotes. ]]
* SoreLoser: His moustache usually suffers the worst from it, fortunately.Just watch his reaction when he loses a card game and say that getting out a laser gun to shoot at your victorious opponent is an appropriate response.
* SuddenlyShouting: He is prone to fits of yelling, especially when he's dealing with Sonic or his robots.
* TerribleTrio: Forms one with Scratch and Grounder in most episodes, playing the role of the boss, natch.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Eggs. He's had eggs for breakfast every day for the last ten years! ''No, he does not want any hotcakes for breakfast.''
* TrrrillingRrrs: Does this quite frrrequently.
-->"I'll have to give myself a PRRRRROMOTION!"
-->"You lame-b'''rrrrr'''ain knuckle-d'''rrrrr'''agging dork! How dare you interrupt me when I'm having a bath with my '''rrrrr'''ubber c'''rrrrr'''ocodile?"
* VillainousBreakdown: Has one at least once an episode.
* WouldHurtAChild: He's stated to Sonic before that if he had captured Tails, he'd be torturing him.

!! Scratch & Grounder
->'''Voiced by:''' Phillip Hayes (Scratch) & Creator/GaryChalk (Grounder)


Robotnik's newest, dedicated anti-Sonic robots and general minions. Unfortunately for him, they're both total incompetents and idiots. Created at about the same time from the same machine, they would originally have been identical, but Scratch pulled a lever that caused Grounder to come out with a different chassis. Both Badniks are based off of badniks from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2''; Grounder is a straight lift of the Grounder badnik (itself a lift of Burrobot from the first game), while Scratch is a heavily modified Clucker (a turret-firing chicken badnik).

* AffablyEvil: In "Grounder The Genius" when Grounder gains super-intelligence, he also gains a considerable amount of charm to his personality.
* AnnoyingLaugh: Scratch has the screechy "Ba-HA ha-HAAAA!!"
* ArmCannon: Grounder has this along with many other weapons.
* TheBully: They are occasionally seen harassing random Mobian citizens for no good reason and once they even attempted to beat up an old (and seemingly weak) crane.
* ButtMonkey: Comes naturally with bosses such as Robotnik and prey such as Sonic. And being dumber than a box of screws.
* CardCarryingVillain: Both, but Scratch takes the cake what with being very vocal about cheating and proud about it.
* {{The Chew Toy}}s: They have been blown up, frozen, melted, run over, squashed, tied together… at least half of the humor in the show revolves around them getting turned into spare parts by Sonic.
* DirtyCoward: Scratch resembles his master very much on this, being a bully who likes to pick only on those whom he deems as weaker than him and being [[CardCarryingVillain quite open about it being more fun]].
* [[TheDitz The Ditzes]]: Scratch is only slightly smarter than Grounder, which isn't saying a whole lot.
* DisabilityImmunity: In the episode "Attack on Pinball Fortress," Dr. Robotnik creates a [[StupidityInducingAttack Stupidity Ray]] to use on Mobius, to make them too stupid to do anything against him. When Scratch gets hit by the ray, it has no effect, because he's already [[TheDitz a complete moron]].
* DoAnythingRobot: Scratch and Grounder are full of all sorts of tools, up to and including [[DistractedByTheSexy inflatable supermodel decoys]].
* TheDogBitesBack: Though usually undyingly loyal to Robotnik, there are odd times they attempt revenge over his abusive treatment of them.
* EvilLaugh: Scratch's rooster laugh, which sounds like a trumpet.
* FatAndSkinny: They're not organic beings, but they contrast appropriately in appearance.
* GenreBlindness: Sonic tricks Grounder and Scratch endlessly all the time with various disguises, yet as far as they seem to know there's just a lot of hedgehogs all over the planet with a series of different and very diverse jobs. Although Scratch does see through his disguises from time to time.
* GoldfishPoopGang: Their traps are not much filler considering the seconds that it takes Sonic to overcome them.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: For Robotnik, anyway. They were intended to be {{Hypercompetent Sidekick}}s who could easily defeat Sonic; instead, they're LethallyStupid clowns who Sonic runs circles around and outwits on a regular basis.
* HammerSpace: How Grounder carries all those arm gadgets.
* HeelFaceTurn: In an inversion of CriminalAmnesiac Scratch temporarily turns good in "Blank-Headed Eagle" when he suffers amnesia and thinks he's a superhero named Edgar Eagle, whom he surprisingly admired.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Both want their maker's approval and to be called "His favorite" more than anything. They are too incompetent to earn it though.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: While Robotnik could at least strive to be fearsome every now and then, Scratch and Grounder were completely incompetent for the large majority of the time, when not being defeated easily by Sonic, their plans were taken apart by random civilians or [[NiceJobFixingItVillain even their own bumbling]].
* InsufferableGenius: What Grounder becomes with the intelligence chip, though does manage to reach an epiphany at the end [[{{The Millstone}} when Scratch]] in trying [[{{Irony}} to help him]], foils [[DidntSeeThatComing his plans]], realizing even a genius cannot predict everything.
* IronButtmonkey: Sonic is unable to put them out of commission permanently, they can easily pull themselves back together, so that's ''one'' aspect of their design Robotnik got right. Pity about the brains though.
* {{Jerkass}}: Scratch towards Grounder, often venting his frustration when the latter's stupidity results in Sonic's plans succeeding. Given [[BadBoss Robotnik's treatment of the two]], this might be [[JustifiedTrope understandable]].
* LaserGuidedTykebomb: The [[AlliterativeName Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad]]. This combined with GoldfishPoopGang. Robotnik created Scratch and Grounder for the express purpose of hunting down and killing Sonic, but since the two have only a quarter of a brain between them, Sonic always ends up the winner.
* TheMagnificent: Listening to how Scratch and Grounder address Robotnik is one of the best parts of the show. Such as "Your Masochisticness".
* {{The Millstone}}s: Whenever one of Robotnik's plans fail, it's typically because of their bumbling.
* NoIndoorVoice: Scratch's incredibly loud, braying voice.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: They had odd times they could act out Robotnik's plans competently. "Mass Transit Trouble" has them successfully OutGambit Sonic and escape for example.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: They manage to produce ''tears'' in ''Sonic's Song''.
* ThePollyanna: Considering how abusive and uncaring their father-figure is, it takes a special kind of obliviousness to feel optimistic and believe they can be his favourites.
* PsychoForHire: They are both among the most pitiable cases but for all intents and purposes do qualify since they viciously enjoy hurting others. When Robotnik had them demolish a city with giant robots Scratch even commented mirthfully:
-->'''Scratch:''' And to think we get paid to do that!''
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Scratch, especially in the German dub.
* SimpletonVoice: Grounder's standard tone of voice, except when he temporarily becomes a genius.
* SmugSnake: Grounder, when he temporarily becomes a genius.
** Scratch seems to have a high opinion of himself half the time, which is reflected by his rooster form.
-->'''Scratch:''' He made ''me'' persistent! He made ''you'' too dumb to quit!
* SwissArmyWeapon: Grounder is full of gadgets and gizmos, ranging from his default drills to proper hands to bizarre one-offs like [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext blowing into his thumb to create a pumpkin to throw at Sonic.]]
* SycophanticServant: Well, servants, plural: No matter how often Robotnik abuses them, they're still willing to serve under him. They do have moments where they [[TheDogBitesBack strike back at him]] for his abusive treatment, however.
* TerribleTrio: Robotnik is the leader; they're the two minions. They also sometimes play as such with Coconuts.
* ThisIsADrill: Grounder has three of them. One for nose and one per each arm.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: One classic duo with many of the stereotypes that accompany them, like the lack of intelligence, their arguments and their contrasting looks.
* VileVillainLaughableLackey: With their comedic bumbling, Scratch and Grounder have this dynamic with Dr. Robotnik.
* VillainsOutShopping: They have their moments when Robotnik's not around, such as in "Blank-Headed Eagle", where they're shown to be huge fans of the heroic "Edgar Eagle" TV character.
* WouldHurtAChild: Tails most of the time of course, but any child is fair play.

!! Coconuts
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/IanJamesCorlett


One of Robotnik's earlier creations; pushed aside in favor of Scratch and Grounder, Coconuts yearns to re-earn Robotnik's attention and affection and so often works independently of his "little brothers", though he will work with them if he must. Coconuts' name and design are lifted directly from the "Coconuts" badnik of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2''.

* AdvertisedExtra: He appears in the opening, but stars in only 17 episodes, roughly a quarter of the series.
* AscendedExtra: He appeared more regularly than Scratch and Grounder in the Archie comic series.
* BoisterousWeakling: He is pretty aggressive for a pint-sized monkey.
* ButtMonkey: Takes abuse most of the time simply for existing despite his rather extreme effort and enthusiasm, getting demoted constantly for mostly nothing…and it's not like Scratch and Grounder have it good either.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Yeah! YEAH!"
* TheChewToy: This robot is the ultimate example of the Badniks role in the series, an evil yet hopeless metallic punching bag.
* TheDitz: Memorable moments include believing Sonic that he would let him hit him and trying to shoot Sonic with an automatic weapon when he was standing ''on him''.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Mostly subverted since he is a ruthless maniac, but played straight from the viewers point of view as a funny [[TheChewToy chew toy]].
* GloryHound: There is noone more persistent and more obsessed than him in proving himself to the Doctor.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: More so than the S.S.S.S Squad, and he's desperate to be Robotnik's No.1 creation.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He's ''slightly'' more savvy and crazy than Scratch and Grounder, though still very much a pitiful bumbler. And even at that he just wants Robotnik's approval.
* IWorkAlone: He sometimes works as a TerribleTrio with Scratch and Grounder, but more often desires to make his own solo missions to prove his superiority, even sometimes sabotaging their's so he can take full credit.
* TheMillstone: His egotism and shortsightedness has done more bad than good to his own team.
* TheRenfield: Is obsessed with gaining Robotnik's approval and respect, even more so than Scratch and Grounder.
* SixthRanger: Of the [[GoldfishPoopGang Super Special Sonic Search & Smash Squad]].
* SmugSnake: He's a more pitiful case than standard examples, but he's still fairly assured he's smarter than Robotnik's other minions and his next plan will ''definitely'' get him on his boss' good books.
* TerribleTrio: When he works with Scratch and Grounder.
* TheUnfavorite: Gets it much worse than Scratch and Grounder, which is really saying something.

* FatAndSkinny: He is this when paired with Arms, quite similarly to Scratch and Grounder.
* NotSoStoic: He loses his cool when he gets beaten and roughed up by Sonic or other heroes.
* ThePioneer: He is modelled after one so of course he is the tracer.
* TheStoic: One of the least expressive and calmest Badniks that is.
* WalkingTheEarth: Presumably an outdoorsman since he looks for trouble.

* DrivesLikeCrazy: A literal road hog and very keen on using his tires.
* EvilIsHammy: This is probably the best example.
* EvilSoundsRaspy: His "sizzling" voice must feel like sizzling your ears.

* GluttonousPig: Having the form of a wheeled hog he expectedly, spews tons of food puns at you pre-battle.

!!! Dynamight
* ComplexityAddiction: He is still incredibly difficult and can create incredibly large combos to end you, but the time he spends doing overly elaborate combos means it's easier to overwhelm him.

* Expy: He uses the AI of the Zombie in the game.
* MadBomber: A given considering that he is a moving stick of dynamite.

* HotBlooded: He has no self control whatsoever.
* {{Jerkass}}: He insults everyone, including his fellow Badniks.
* SpikesOfVillainy: In case you haven't noticed he has a thing for spikes.

!!! Sir Ffuzzy-Logik
* BadassBoast: He calls himself Dr R's champion. Of course most badniks do this when they don't openly threaten you.
* BlackKnight: He has the demeanour if not the color scheme.
* TheChampion: He certainly sees himself as this.
* TheComicallySerious: His DramaticWind and his big words aren't enough to change the fact that he is a ridiculously over-the-top robotic helmet with NoMouth.
* DramaQueen: He speaks as if he is in a medieval setting. Of course given that he is a [[EvilIsHammy knight he was made to be this way.]]
* FailureKnight: He fails to realise Sonic is among them and is an IneffectualSympatheticVillain like all of them.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He calls you ''Sire'' before challenging you to a fight.
* Expy: He uses the AI of Schezo in the game.
* TheRival: To Dragonbreath like a real dragon and a knight would be.
* UndyingLoyalty: [[MyMasterRightOrWrong Like his fellow henchbots he is utterly devoted to his boss]].
* YouShallNotPass: "Thou are destined to proceed no further".

!!! Dragonbreath
* CompositeCharacter: He uses the AI of the Minotaur in the game, but shakes the board like Zoh Daimaoh.
* TheDragon: The second one after Scratch. He takes charge of the bounty hunters.
* DumbMuscle: All badniks are dumb, but he gets a special mention for being the [[TheBrute most muscular one.]]
* EvilIsHammy: He shouts orders all the time.
* HairTriggerTemper: Sonic taunting him with William Tell was enough to make him scream at the top of his lungs and throw his spiky club at him.
* TheRival: To Sir Ffuzzy-Logik which makes sense since he has the form of a dragon.
** NoSympathyBetweenMooks: His comments about fuzzy-face.
* TestosteronePoisoning: He is [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain goofy in a thuggish way already]], but when one sees his GoofyPrintUnderwear he becomes even more of a joke.

!! Other Robotnik Robots
* AIIsACrapshoot: At worst, some of Robotnik's droids can turn out to be disobedient or even worse, ''good willed''. At best they are loyal but incompetent fools like Scratch and Grounder.
* AmbiguousDisorder: The Music Destroyer was built with hyper-sensitive hearing and an extreme intolerance for music, as though he had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misophonia misophonia]].
* AscendedExtra: A lot of Robotnik's earlier robots from the pilot appear as enemies in ''VideoGame/DrRobotniksMeanBeanMachine''.
* BerserkButton: Don't ''ever'' play music around the Music Destroyer.
* TheBrute: Many of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek one-episode badniks]] fit this role, being significantly larger and stronger than Scratch and Grounder, but possess otherwise unremarkable intelligence. [[LargeAndInCharge Coachnik]], [[DumbMuscle Arnold]] [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Robo]][[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger negger]], and the [[BerserkButton Music]] [[UnstoppableRage Destroyer]] are all good examples of this.
* ButtMonkey: Almost any robot made to commit evil by Robotnik is doomed to be humiliated and turned to scrap by Sonic.
* DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster: Ballhog and Roller were adapted for one episode with this persona.
* TheGunslinger: The Despicable Desperados in "Magnificent Sonic", naturally using lasers in place of traditional pistols.
* LivingProp: Many generic robots assist Scratch and Grounder in certain schemes, some with recurring designs.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: The biggest role these characters play.
* UnwillingRoboticisation: Despite being more synonymous with the ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' version, Robotnik used this odd times in the show, notably in the Chaos Emerald four parter, where he does this to [[CaptainColorbeard Blackbot the Pirate]]. However, ''[=AoStH=]'' is also notable for being the only [=DiC=] ''Sonic'' show to feature the more traditional "organic battery" form of UnwillingRoboticisation from the games (where an animal is encased in a robotic shell and used as an energy source, rather than have its flesh turned into metal as in ''[=SatAM=]'' and the Chaos Emerald arc), albeit only once in the episode "Pseudo Sonic," where the titular character is piloted by a diminutive mouse. Needless to say, the vast majority of Robotnik's Badniks in ''[=AoStH=]'' are not Unwillingly Roboticized, but constructed out of parts like any other robot.


[[folder: Other Characters]]
!! Breezie
->'''Voiced by:''' Venus Terzo


A robotic female hedgehog created by Robotnik to run Sonic into an exhausted state by bending him around her little finger and sending him on impossibly long quests to please her. She has a change of heart when Sonic turns out to genuinely care for her and winds up joining a community of Robotnik's various "junked" robots.

* CanonImmigrant: It took her 20 years, but she's making her debut outside of the cartoon in ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' #268. She'd go on to become a ''massive'' AscendedExtra, too, with a ''[[AdaptationExpansion very]]'' different role than in the show!
* EasilyForgiven: After Tails found out about her true motive, Breezie disposes of Tails rather quickly and harshly. However after her HeelFaceTurn (which Tails was NOT present at as he was still subdued by her,) he still was very quick to forgive her.
%%* HeelFaceTurn
* InterspeciesRomance: With Robotnik Jr. Subverted because they are both robots, they just look different.
* TheMole: Designed to seduce Sonic and lead him into a trap set by Robotnik, before gaining genuine affections for the hedgehog and [[HeelFaceTurn intervening]].
%%* MsFanservice
* TheVamp: A very unsubtle case.

!! Momma Robotnik
Robotnik's harridan mother, normally held safely away in the "Mobius Home for Really Bizarre Mothers" but who sometimes escapes to harass her son and everyone else. She looks almost identical to her son, but she's considerably larger (usually twice his size, depending on the scene) and much nastier.

* AbusiveParents: She is both physically and verbally abusive to her own son.
* BrawnHilda: She's a huge, fat, ugly woman.
* CardCarryingVillain: As she reveals in "Zoobotnik," she ''intentionally raised her son'' to be a dishonest supervillain.
* DependingOnTheArtist: While always designed as something of a female Robotnik, the extent of this varies from having at least basic TertiarySexualCharacteristics, to outright being her son in a dress, ''mustache and all''.
* TheDreaded: She's so crazy and evil that even Robotnik himself is terrified of her.
* EvilMatriarch: Not just to Robotnik, but once she even ''adopted Sonic''.
* EvilSoundsDeep: She's got a very gruff and grating voice, but can make herself sound more pleasant if she's trying to deceive someone.
* FatBitch: She is fatter and meaner than Robotnik himself.
* GagBoobs: In one of the show's many instances of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, they [[{{Squick}} visibly stretch out her much-too-small dress]].
* GirlsWithMoustaches: DependingOnTheArtist at least.
* {{Gonk}}: Arguably even moreso than her son, due to the two [[UncannyFamilyResemblance looking so similar]]. [[GirlsWithMoustaches She even has his mustache]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: In her first appearance she gets mad at Robotnik for lying to her, then in "Zoobotnik" gets mad when he tells the truth saying she raised him to be a liar. She despises Ivo and wants him to be evil at the same time, but not even SHE voted for him in "Sonic Is Running" despite being the one who ordered him to run for President, because he was a failure.
* LargeHam: Just as much as her son.
* ManipulativeBastard: She tricks Tails into heading towards her trap by acting as though she's an innocent woman who [[WhereDidWeGoWrong doesn't understand how her son turned out so horrible]] and wants him to become good.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Is essentially Robotnik in a dress with eyelashes. They didn't even bother getting rid of [[GirlsWithMoustaches the mustache]].
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: As stated above, she's a bigger, fatter, ugly, bustier Robotnik in a dress with little girly eyelashes.

!! Robotnik Jr.
An artificial son created by Robotnik to inherit his empire, since the alternative, giving it to Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts, is unthinkable to him. Unfortunately for Robotnik, he turns rebel against him and goes to live with Robotnik's other rejects, where he develops a crush on Breezie.

* CatchPhrase: "Big whoop!"
%%* DoggedNiceGuy: To Breezie.
%%* HeelFaceTurn
* OverlordJr: Robotnik creates him to carry on his legacy.
* TookALevelInKindness: After Sonic convinces him.

!! Wes Weasley
* ArmsDealer: He could be seen as this, as he sells various weaponry and traps to Robotnik and Coconuts without any care about their plans to use them.
%%* ConMan
* {{Expy}}: Michael Donovan [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPfkYwYWuH0&feature=related has admitted]][[note]]look in the comments[[/note]] that Weasley's voice is his "bad impersonation" of PhilSilvers.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He dislikes Robotnik, especially when he bullies and cheats him, but whenever he is a potential customer, he is always right as far as Wes is concerned.
%%* HonestJohnsDealership
* NiceHat: A little fedora that- for some reason - floats a couple of inches above his head.
%%* SnakeOilSalesman
%%* UnmovingPlaid

!! Collie Chang

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Named after Connie Chung.

!! Katella
An infamous intergalactic bounty hunter. When she meets Robotnik, she immediately falls in love with him and won't take no for an answer.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Unusually not because of looks but because of demeanour.
* BastardGirlfriend: To Robotnik. Weirdly enough, ''she'' is the one who is first smitten with ''him'', mainly because he's so evil.
%%* BoobsOfSteel
* BountyHunter: She kidnaps people from and sells them to intergalactic zoos.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Her entire role in "Zoobotnik" consists of her manhandling Robotnik in what is blatantly sexual assault, including at one point jumping up and down on him in a way similar to dry humping. However, while she's not called on it, it's very clear that it is not okay and Robotnik is actually ''very'' afraid of her.
* EgomaniacHunter: Very proud and full of herself, and she even carries a record player for her theme music.
* EvilerThanThou: It's not long before Robotnik becomes totally scared of Katella.
* EvilVersusEvil: Katella against Mama Robotnik after the latter shows up at the wedding. Katella calls the marriage off because she refuses to have Mama Robotnik for a mother-in-law.
%%* FieryRedhead
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: She makes frequent winks towards the audience.
* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: She carries around a portable record player with her own leitmotif.
* MsFanservice: It's not exactly clear if she's a human, but she's definitely one of the most human-looking and attractive characters on the show.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Though it would help if she didn't beat up Robotnik every time she gets her hands on him.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: The minute she sees Robotnik she can't restrain herself from manhandling him.
* NotGoodWithRejection: Invoked when she coolly warns Robotnik that she "Doesn't handle rejection well."
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: She gets over her attraction to Robotnik after seeing what his mother's like, leaving Mobius for a planet that will "Appreciate her." She then ''literally'' chases after another planet with romantic intent.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: During her fight with Mama Robotnik, Katella gets squashed against a wall by Mama Robotnik's ass.
* ShotgunWedding: Which she tries to pull on Robotnik before his mom shows up.
%%* TheVamp
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Katella's one of, if not ''the'', hottest character in the cartoon, while Robotnik is more or less a pointy-headed blob with a mustache. And yet Katella is absolutely nuts about him, though less because of how he looks and more because of how twisted and depraved he is.
* {{Yandere}}: A more subdued version. She will ''not'' take no for an answer.

!! Goopster
A cute little BlobMonster from another dimension. He becomes Tails' pet in "So Long Sucker!"

* [[ABoyAndHisX A Fox And His Alien]]: With Tails, although Sonic thinks he's too dangerous to keep around.
* BerserkButton: When he gets angry or hungry, he grows to enormous size and devours everything and everyone in sight.
* BigEater: The only thing that can satisfy his appetite is - you guessed it - chili dogs.

!! Professor Von Schlemmer
* AbsentMindedProfessor
* KidnappedScientist: He's a frequent kidnapping victim of Robotnik's.
* TheVonTropeFamily: Professor "Von" Schlemmer.
