Undying Loyalty: After the Kane Broadcasting Company and Grimer completely destroy Sonic's reputation, Tails is the only being on Mobius who still believes in and trusts him.
Unwilling Roboticisation: Robotnik turns him into a badnik in issue 2, but thankfully Sonic frees him. He tries again in 5 in the Labyrinth Zone, but Sonic causes a tidal wave before it can be done.
"They don't call me "Aim" for nothing!"
A pink anthropomorphic hedgehog and member of the Freedom Fighters. She swiftly matured as the comic went on and became one of the most valuable members of the Freedom Fighters, especially due to her expert marksmanship with her crossbow (which she created herself) or hand-drawn bow.
Unwilling Roboticisation: Robotnik tries to turn her into a badnik in issue 22, but thankfully Sonic frees her before the process is completed, however Brutus is able to turn her into a badnik in the story Revolution thankfully Sonic frees her again.
Weak, but Skilled: Never gains the raw power of Sonic or Knuckles, but her smarts and ranged combat abilities allow her to be almost as effective under the right conditions.

Sonic: Change reality any way you like, Robotnik! Whatever you do I'll still fight you, and somehow I'll win! Because no matter how ridiculous the situation, I'll never give up, Robotnik! I'll never give up!
Sonic the Hedgehog is the former leader of the Freedom Fighters based out of the Emerald Hill Zone and was commonly regarded as the hero of Mobius. Born with the power to run at unnatural speeds Sonic was involved in an experiment which allowed him to break the sound barrier, resulting in a sonic boom that turned him blue. Working with Doctor Kintobor to rid the planet of all evil, Sonic witnessed the good Doctor's transformation into his long-time nemesis Doctor Ivo Robotnik. He is probably most famous on Mobius for opposing Robotnik on countless occasions, and later deposing of the tyrant during the final victory in the Metropolis Zone. For undercover work, he has often disguised himself under the alias of Bob Beaky to avoid revealing his true identity. Due to extreme exposure to high levels of Chaos energy Sonic has developed a transformation into an alter-ego known as Super Sonic. This malevolent demonic being is unleashed in times of great stress or if he is overexposed to additional Chaos energy. He is now a outcast feared and hated by all of Mobius (sans Tails).
Ambiguous Disorder: According to Nigel Kitching, Sonic has an inability to properly express his feelings (see: Porker Lewis calling it quits). Back when he was all brown and prickly, he was apparently withdrawn enough to rely on a human for social comfort, and aside from that only seemed to care about running.
Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While he is a hero worshiped by all of Mobius as a fearless symbol of hope, he is actually a self-centered, immature Jerkass. This comes back to bite him in the ass in Sonic The Comic Online, where the sheep's clothing gets flung off and he ends up becoming a fugitive. Once the public knew about some of his more questionable decisions that he made to try and save Mobius, all the Jerk Ass tendencies that people were willing to ignore made it easy for Grimer to convince the public that he was a villain.
Blood Knight: He gets bored and restless when there's no new challenge or threat, and will often deliberately go seeking one out.
Blow You Away: By running at full speed around an enemy, he can form a Sonic Cyclone that rips the enemy to shreds through its slipstream. A variation of this technique is a "cocoon of speed", which he uses to contain bombs and missiles and protect outside forces from the blast radius.
Broken Pedestal: Following the media smear campaign and everything else in Sonic The Comic Online, Sonic has became this to the remaining Freedom Fighters and Mobius. Let's just say that, when you know the Sonicverse as a whole, it's pretty jarring to see even Amy hating Sonic only Tails still belives in Sonic.
Cool Shades: He sports them in the second comic, for no apparent reason other than to look cool. He also constantly sports a pair when he disguises himself as Bob Beaky.
Create Your Own Villain: In the Brotherhood of Metallix story arc loosely based on Sonic CD had Sonic going back in time and deliberately causing the accident that turned kindly Dr. Ovi Kintobor into Dr. Ivo Robotnik. In the altered timeline where the accident never occurred, the Brotherhood of Metallix conquered Mobius and couldn't be stopped- in the 'real' timeline, Robotnik worked on the Metallixes, too, and thought to give them a mass-self-destruct function.
Force Field: By vibrating his molecules at super-speed, Sonic can create a forcefield.
Full Body Disguise: Sonic's Bob Beaky disguise (a green ushanka and duffel coat, yellow-checked scarf, grey boots and mittens, wraparound shades, and false beak) which completely conceals Sonic's body allowing him to travel incognito or infiltrate a public area.
However The Kane Broadcasting Company has revealed to Mobius that Sonic The Hedgehog is Bob Beaky blowning his disguise.
Heroic Resolve: So long as something existed to menace Mobius, Sonic would never give up. Best exemplified by the speech he gives to Robotnik when the latter has absorbed the power of the Chaos emeralds to attain reality warping powers, while they're fighting through a series of increasingly bizarre scenarios.
In one story, Sonic fights a robot that can predict his every move and counteract it. So Sonic gives up. Since the robot was programmed to believe that this circumstance would never happen, it malfunctions and blows up, which is exactly what Sonic intended.
Hero with Bad Publicity: As of Sonic the Comic Online, this trope has become Sonic's downfall - the Kane Broadcasting Company uses their footage to convince the population of Mobius that Sonic is actually a villain who might be worse than Robotnik, and the worst part of it is, the footage they have to back up their claims, while very one-sided, is still genuine. Sonic's base can spy on every zone in the world, Sonic himself is a bit of a dick, and his super form is a monster who's already caused havoc before. Not to mention the fact that he created Robotnik... This smear campaign worked so well in conjunction with the Big Bad's evil scheme that Sonic is now a complete outcast, loathed and feared worldwide; even the Freedom Fighters (sans Tails) no longer trust him.
High-Altitude Interrogation: In Sonic the Comic Online, he uses this on Grouchio one of the Marxio Bros. by dangling him over a vat of Mega Mack.
Homeless Hero: In Sonic The Comic Online after becoming an outcast, Sonic is now homeless in issue 262 story Hog Hunt a park-keeper wakes Bob Beaky/Sonic sleeping on a bench in Grace Falls Memorial Park.
Hulking Out: Whenever Sonic became stressed or extremely angry he transforms into Super Sonic.
Jerkass: He is somewhat bossy, cocky, immature and arrogant, and characters regularly referred to his "strange sense of humour" - in Attack on the Death Egg, Sonic deliberately let Tails think he was dead for a laugh. Sonic's attitude frequently made cruel jokes at the expense of Tails, who he often refers to as "pixel brain".
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: That said, he genuinely cares about his friends and has shown concern over them coming to serious harm, and takes the protection of Mobius very seriously.
Leeroy Jenkins: Sonic's natural tendency is to just rush straight into battle without thinking, and rely on sheer force to plow through anything in his way. This often causes him to be overpowered by stronger enemies, or overwhelmed by sheer numbers. Best seen in this quote where Sonic leaps out of a plane to take on hundreds of robots:
Tails: But Sonic, shouldn't we have some kind of plan?
When All You Have Is a Hammer: Averted: Sonic's natural tendency is to just plow through his enemies with shear force and speed, but when faced with an enemy who this doesn't work against he tends to get more tactical and use his powers more creatively (grabbing hold of them and super-vibrating himself, creating cyclones with his speed, angling his attacks so that his momentum is transferred to the enemy, or timing the attack to strike at the point where the enemy is most vulnerable).
A panicky former Freedom Fighter. Based on the "Picky" captive from the original games.
Anthropomorphic Shift: Arguably even more noticeable than Johnny, gaining a muscular body nearly twice Sonic's height, compared to his "small animal" design identical to the games early on (amusingly flashbacks were occasionally used featuring the character with his humanoid design). He changed twice, since at first he still had his hooves before they were changed to hands.
Brown Eyes: It switched between the issues, though most commonly he's shown with blue eyes.
Dark and Troubled Past: His real name is Oscar the Pig, a native of the Special Zone who unwittingly became involved with a Mafia boss named Hammerhead who used Porker's research to develop weapons. When he destroyed his research and sabotaged the project, Hammerhead had him framed, forcing him to flee to Mobius, where he eventually joined up with Sonic.
Heroic BSOD: After being stranded on the Miracle Planet for a month, Porker Lewis has this and quits the Freedom Fighters.
Non-Action Guy: Never a fighter, Porker loses his nerve entirely after being captured by the Metallixes, and he retires from the Freedom Fighters. Sonic never properly forgives him. Of course, this doesn't stop him from helping his old pals a few times afterwards.
Transplant: After his encounter with Metallix, Porker quits the Freedom Fighters and relocates to the Floating Island to study the ancient echidna civilisation and becomes an important supporting character for Knuckles as much as he is for Sonic.
The Omni-Viewer (or Omni, as he is commonly known) is a recurring character in Sonic the Comic. Although not entirely clear what Omni is, he often acts as a computer program. He has many other abilities, however, such as the power to transport people through time and space.
Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: He is the can, he and Sonic devised a plan to banish Super to another dimension. At the last second, with Super smashed into Omni's space, he changed his mind, not wishing to burden anybody else with Super Sonic. Omni tried to freeze time, making himself an eternal prison, but only managed to slow time to a crawl. The others moved Omni to the Black Asteroid, hoping to contain Super Sonic when he eventually broke free from Omni.
The leader of the Chaotix Crew and the only member of the team who seems to do more than just fight. He is quite intellectual and a capable scientist and detective. He is usually the one who handles Chaotix's PR issues and liasons with the New Tek City police.
The Face: He is usually the one who handles Chaotix's PR issues and liasons with the New Tek City police.
Genius Bruiser: He is balanced in both brawn and brains. His physical strength is significant and he tends to fight using his tail and teeth. He also possesses keen computation and detective skills.
The Smart Guy: While he gets physical as often as his team-mates, Vector's main role is the crew's field-leader, strategist and technical expert.
Mighty the Armadillo
The strongest member of the Chaotix Crew. He can be rather hot-tempered at times and is often arguing with teammate Espio, but he is a loyal friend and won't turn his back on a teammate (except maybe Charmy).
A terrorist group led by Doctor Zachary. From their flying fortress, the Death Carrier, they planned to use the Chaos Siphon to set off a chain reaction that would have destroyed Mobius.Tropes for The Syndicate as a whole.
Click here to see Doctor Zachary during his first appearance
An elderly, white-furred male echidna, and an enemy of Knuckles the Echidna. He first appeared in Issue 65. Zachary is one of only three Echidnas known to still be alive. He has secret knowledge of the Echidna people, and may even know where they went.
Card-Carrying Villain: Dr. Zachary calls himself evil; ("Knuckles never expected that I could be evil!").
Disney Villain Death: He falls from the Floating Island, however this is subverted, while airborne, Zachary was able to use his Guardian Robot's body to soften his landing, but the impact left him horribly injured.
The Dragon: In the Knuckles story leading up issue 100 as we as issue 100 he was Robotnik's dragon.
Faux Affably Evil: At first look Zachary seems like an well educated and intelligent person, this serves to hide his sociopathic tendencies. Beneath his calm exterior lies a mad mind with zero empathy for others. He showed no qualms nor regret for the destruction of the Special Zone, an act that killed thousands, maybe even millions of innocent lives. Combined with sadistic mocking of others and you got yourself a real genuine, first-class sociopath.
Two-Faced: After falling of the floating island he was horribly injured, Robotnik saved Zachary's life by integrating him with Badnik technology, replacing the entire right side of his head and face.
Shadow The Hedgehog
A member of Doctor Zachary's Syndicate, the Ultimate Lifeform, an artificial being created as a weapon by the Drakon Empire to destroy Mobius during the ancient war between the Echidnas and the Drakons.

Doctor Ivo Robotnik is the primary antagonist of Sonic the Comic and the sworn enemy of Sonic the Hedgehog. Born Ovi Kintobor, a laboratory "accident" (later revealed to be caused by Sonic) turned the mild mannered professor into an evil, tyrannical doctor with a thirst for power. He soon conquered Mobius and transformed its citizens into mobile, mechanical weapons known as Badniks. Sonic and his Freedom Fighters fought him for years until he was finally defeated and lost his reign over the planet. Several more years followed with many attempts to regain power. However, Robotnik never truly did regain power and went insane, trying to destroy the world on more than one occasion.
Body to Jewel: In Order & Chaos when Robotnik absorbs the Chaos Emeralds' power his body turns into a crystal statue however it proves to be a temporarily state while he adjusted to the Chaos Emerald power, when he had become a Living Statue.
Bright Is Not Good: As Grand Vizier to Princess Kupacious he wore white robes with golden plates on.
Demoted to Dragon: In the Drakon arc he makes a deal with Emperor Ko-Dorr, The Drakons would provide Robotnik with resources and transport, and he in turn would deliver the Chaos Emeralds, then in the Shanazar arc he worked as Grand Vizier to Princess Kupacious, but both times he was using them for furtherhis own goals and he was a far greater threat than Princess Kupacious.
The Nth Doctor: Robotnik initially looked like he did in the games. In the 21st issue, he is convinced by two guys (expies of the comic staff) to change his appearance. He does so by encasing himself in a egg. He hatches in the following issue, now resembling his AOSTH design. As pictured, by the Sonic Adventure arc, he now looks like the SatAM Robotnik with the SA counterpart's clothes.
Ret Gone: What he does to Sonic in the Robotnik Reigns Supreme arc which for some reason doesn't Ret Gone himself.
The Starscream: To Emperor Ko-Dorr and then to Princess Kupacious, a rare successful example.
Sanity Slippage: In the events leading up to the Sonic Adventure adaptation, Robotnik begins to lose it, first trying to destroy Mobius, and later gathering the Chaos Emeralds, the Freedom Fighters, and Chaos itself to his retreat so they would all die together. After this fails, he becomes little more than a drooling vegetable in Sonic The Comic Online.
The Drakon Empire is an inter-galactic empire that presumably encompasses several planets and species. The centre is Drak, home to a race of fish people called the Drakon people. Society is led by Master Scholar (House of Knowledge), Sister Haggra (House of Magic) and Emperor Brokken (House of War). The Empire's main goal is to relocate their Chaos Emeralds, ancient stones stolen by an old Echidna tribe that contain their store of Chaos energy. With these, they can rule the entire universe.Tropes for the Drakon Empire as a whole:
Talking Animal: Unlike the Mobians the Drakon are talking fish in humanoid-robot exoskeletons.
Emperor Ko-Dorr is a Drakon, and the former leader of the House of War.In his first appearance in Sonic the Comic, he came into contact with Dr Robotnik, brought to the Drakon Empire by a Prosecutor. While initially the Drakons were curious as to who had discovered the secrets of the Mobius Ring on Flickies' Island, Ko-Dorr's attention shifted to Sonic the Hedgehog, Robotnik telling the Emperor that the hedgehog was guilty of crimes against the Drakon Empire, through the destruction of a Sentinel. Ko-Dorr and Robotnik thus made a deal: The Drakons would provide Robotnik with resources and transport, and he in turn would deliver the Chaos Emeralds, allowing Ko-Dorr to rule the House of Magic and House of Knowledge in addition to his own House of War, but the first priority was to deal with Sonic. The hedgehog was brought to the House of War and entered into a Trial by Combat against a Metallix Mark 3, Ko-Dorr presiding as judge. When Sonic was victorious, with a little help from Tails, Ko-Dorr saw that the hedgehog was safely returned home, but was left with a promise that the Drakons hadn't seen the last of Sonic.Later, Sister Haggra revealed to Ko-Dorr and Master Scholar that Sonic was the key to the Drakons obtaining the Chaos Emeralds, but Ko-Dorr was forced to feign ignorance and pretend not to know the hedgehog. The Emperor soon after visited Flickies' Island to bring his plan forward. The intent was to bring Sonic in and interrogate him on the whereabouts of the Emeralds, but the hedgehog wiped out every Drakon invading the Emerald Hill Zone, including a Master Sentinel. To the Emperor's good fortune though, Grimer, switched sides to join the Drakons, claiming to have had enough of working for Robotnik.In the House of War, Grimer revealed that the Emeralds were indeed on the Floating Island, but warned Ko-Dorr of Knuckles and his Guardian Robots. Pre-occupied with planning his invasion, the Emperor had no interest in dealing with Hobson and Choy, who had defaced his statue, planning to decide on their punishment 'in a year or two.' When the Drakons later invaded the Floating Island, Ko-Dorr remained in touch with Grimer, who was leading the invasion, from the House of War. What happened to him and the other Drakons when Robotnik reshaped the universe is unknown.Sonic the Comic Online revealed that Ko-Dorr has since been deposed and replaced by the as-yet unseen Emperor Brokken. Ko-Dorr's current whereabouts are unknown.
Big Bad Triumvirate: With Master Scholar and Sister Haggra, Emperor Ko-Dorr is one of the three rulers of the Drakon Empire.
The Emperor: The former emperor of the Drakon Empire and formerly one the co-rulers along with Master Scholar and Sister Haggra.
"I always think many moves ahead, Sister. Always."
Master Scholar is a leading figure in the Drakon Empire, sitting at the very top of the House of Knowledge. Along with Sister Haggra and, Emperor Brokken, Scholar controlled all aspects of Drakon life.
Big Bad Triumvirate: With Sister Haggra and Emperor Brokken, Master Scholar is one of the three rulers of the Drakon Empire.
Sister Haggra is a Drakon and the leader of the House of Magic.In her first appearance, she was seen with Master Scholar and Emperor Ko-Dorr using the Vapours of Destiny to reveal who could bring the Chaos Emeralds to the Drakons. Not knowing the identity of Sonic, the figure within the mists, she pressed Scholar and Ko-Dorr for answers, but Scholar knew nothing of Sonic, and Ko-Dorr was forced to lie, saying the off-worlder he'd recently put on trial was taller and purple.
Big Bad Triumvirate: With Emperor Brokken and Master Scholar, Sister Haggra is one of the three rulers of the Drakon Empire.
Seer: She can use the Vapours of Destiny to reveal things.
Emperor Brokken is the current leader of the Drakon House of War. He has not made an actual appearance as of yet, but in Sonic the Comic Online Issue 236, Sonic discovered from Drakon civilians that Emperor Ko-Dorr had been deposed sometime between then and his failed attack on the Floating Island in Issue 125. Brokken's handling of Drakon military issues has yet to be witnessed firsthand, but he is likely playing a pivotal role in the Empire's current campaign against Mobius.
Big Bad Triumvirate: With Master Scholar and Sister Haggra, Emperor Brokken is one of the three rulers of the Drakon Empire.
The Emperor: Of the Drakon Empire and one the co-rulers along with Master Scholar and Sister Haggra.
The Unseen: Emperor Brokken has yet not made an appearance.
A criminal organization of insects from the Special Zone under the leadership of the spider Don Long Legs. Though originally from the Special Zone, The Family was tipped off by Grimer about the Syndicate destroying the Special Zone as a plot to make Sonic's world plagued by mob activity.Tropes for The Family as a whole:
He is a sleazy businessman and con artist from the Casino Night Zone. Making his first appearance in Sonic the Comic Issue 81, Gamble owned one of the many gambling establishments in the zone.
Civilian Villain: Max Gamble has allegedly gone straight becoming a zone leader and Gamble helping insect refugees from the Special Zone (who are certainly not Family members) out of the goodness of his heart, the truth is that Gamble is working for Don Long-Legs head of The Family.
He still suffers the watchful eyes of the Freedom Fighters from time to time, but has not been seen doing anything outwardly criminal in front of them - Sonic only saw him in the same room as the Don when the hedgehog himself was a wanted criminal. Max has even helped the Freedom Fighters against Bleed, and worked with them to get Fabian Vane's concert secured.
Con Man: Gamble tried to sale Eldorado businessmen some robots that were purposely faulty: Gamble had planned for the robots to go beserk whilst on the job, but his demonstration model went crazy before the sale.
Early-Installment Weirdness: In his first appearance, Max was a huge, imposing monitor lizard. Subsequent appearances made him smaller and less intimidating, and after #100 he had a consistent look as a more cartoonishly-evil, thinner lizard.
The Face: He now acts as the Don's "legitimate" front man of The Family.
The Mafia: He is gangster and now the front man of The Family.
A member of The Family who works under Don Long-Legs, primarily as an assassin.
Use Your Head: He tried to ram Amy with his head but missed and hit a car instead.
[[quoteright:297:He works for The Family as a psychologist, and is the Don's top lieutenant. He is equipped with psychic powers which he uses to get inside peoples' heads, in more ways than one, as well as sustain limited flight, not to mention some degree of telekinetic ability. In his own words, he specialises in analysing his enemies' weaknesses, then using his powers to tear down their emotional walls.
A trio of birds from Mobius who take part in a dangerous race in an attempt to gain entry to the magical island of Babylon. Comprising of Jet the Hawk, Wave the Swallow and Storm the Albatross.Tropes for the Babylon Rogues as a whole:
A member of the Babylon Rogues, Storm's brutish nature makes him the muscle of the trio. However, his strength has replaced his intelligence and the bird sounds extremely stupid whenever he talks and simply laughing whenever Jet the Hawk or Wave the Swallow taunts Sonic the Hedgehog or Tails.
The League's leader, and head of the Doctor Robotnik Appreciation Tribe. Easily frustrated at his comrades' shortcomings. While certainly villainous, he's not afraid of abandoning his group when failure rears its ugly head.
A minor villain in Sonic the Comic who fancied himself as a rival to Miles "Tails" Prower. The small creature was a "master thief", using his mechanical wings to quickly infiltrate a target and speed off with the loot.
Easy Impersonation: His similar shape to Tails, as well as his airborne abilities, led people to wrongly assume that Tails had become a criminal, not that The Leaf planned this.
Mad polluter. Dense has armed himself with extendable punching gloves, a red-hot oil gun and several polluto-bombs. He also doesn't seem to be a good traveller, though this may be down to The Leaf's driving or his own "polluto-bombs".
A single Plax, expelled by his creators for not being part of the group mind. This seems to have given him a slight inferiority complex. He's either not particularly clever, or the League just don't deem him important enough to know any of the details.
"The cute blue hedgehog is gone - now you're against Super Sonic! And it ain't gonna be pretty."
Super Sonic is a powered-up form of Sonic the Hedgehog, a psychotic demon-like entity who manifests himself in Sonic's body under conditions of extreme stress or exposure to chaos energy. Sonic frequently had to battle to keep this alter-ego in check, because Super Sonic's immense destructive powers, hyperaggression, sadistic humour and lack of restraint frequently endangered innocent civilians and even Sonic's own friends, he eventually became his own character.
Identity Amnesia: Becomes a nice guy when he temporarily looses his memories. But becomes haunted for a long time by recurring nightmares of a demonic creature destroying the world and saving him for last. Eventually, he discovers these are actually representations of his past destructive urges, remembering in full that he was once the evil, chaotic Super Sonic. This leads him to refuse to use his powers lest he become corrupted by them once more - indeed, each time he taps into chaos energy or his inert powers, he reverts to his crazy self. His desire to not become a demon again ends in tragedy, as he is corrupted by the power of all seven emeralds - while attempting to save his own life nonetheless - and he is promptly merged back with Sonic, seemingly ending the pacifist Super Sonic's life.
The Juggernaut: He possesses all of Sonic's powers but amped up by a tremendous amount. He is many times stronger and faster than his blue counterpart, and is all-but invincible; It takes enormous kinetic damage, accompanied by extreme exhaustion, in order to defeat him.
Physical God: Super Sonic seems to verge on this, especially towards the end of the arc where Sonic was trapped in the Special Zone. Besides his immense strength and speed (both enough to easily annihilate enemies who Sonic was all but helpless against) and flight, he's also so powerful that the Omniviewer was unable to stop time for him (only slow it enough to ensure that crossing several inches would take years) was able to remain fully aware even while in a state of slowed time, and was able to gather enough charged particles to turn an asteroid into a miniature sun (which then exploded with enough force to bathe the entire surface of Mobius in a powerful electromagnetic pulse). It's occasionally said that he is powerful enough to destroy a planet.
Karma Houdini: Despite the fact he played a fundamental role in Robotnik's schemes, designed and built most of the badniks, was entirely culpable for releasing Chaos and therefore Johnny Lightfoot's death and (unlike Robotnik) has no excuse for his evil ways, Grimer strides out of the series scot-free and unrepentant, with a triumphant 'I quit!'.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: He's usually seen in Robotnik's shadow, carrying out his orders with obsequious alacrity or nervous meekness as the situation demands. When Robotnik needs to be rescued, however, Grimer becomes a Chess Master to be reckoned with. And at one point when Sonic is captured, he turns downright scary.
A former member of the Chaotix and recurring villain within Sonic the Comic, who operates both on his own and as something of a mercenary. He is notably technically minded, having developed his own weapons and tech, such as the size-altering cartridges adorning his hat, and a disrupter for use against Metallixes. Nack is also very intelligent, always thinking several moves ahead, planning for any eventuality and setting up back-up plans.
Badass Cape: Wears a purple one as Zone Leader of the Coal Creek Zone and Diamond Fjord Zone.
Civilian Villain: Nack the Weasel has allegedly gone straight become a zone leader and Nack helping the weasels out of the goodness of his heart, the truth is that Nack is trying to take over the Ocean Falls Zone.
Shrink Ray: Used one to shrink the stags ruling over the Diamond Fjord Zone and Coal Creek Zone, into nothing.
Doctor Robotnik Appreciation Tribe (D.R.A.T.)
A fanatical cult who revere Doctor Robotnik in a seemingly godly light. Led by Grand Chief Whip, D.R.A.T. are determined to make the people of Mobius view Robotnik as they do and to prepare the planet for the doctor's inevitable return to power. The cult's motto is "Bring back the Doctor!"
A very powerful Metallix model created by Doctor Robotnik some time after he was deposed. Unlike the previous models which were based on Sonic, the Mark 3 was modelled after Knuckles. It proved to be every bit as strong as the original, perhaps stronger, and remained loyal to Robotnik unlike the Brotherhood.
Curb-Stomp Battle: In every single fight with the Knuckles Metallixes, Sonic has never been able to beat them alone.
The Door Slams You: When Tails gets the entrance of the Arena of Judgement open and calls Sonic over. Metallix charges at them, but Tails, seeing that Sonic's in no fit state to fight back, brings the door down upon the robot, crushing it into submission.
Buddy is the name given by Big the Cat to a former Drakon Prosecutor that lived for thousands of years as Chaos. Ever since he lost the Chaos energy that made him strong, Buddy has been trying to get this power back but has been continuously thwarted by the bumbling Big.
Adaptational Villainy: He's completely unsympathetic in this comic, unlike the games version. He's also much worse in his villainy, and has no motive whatsoever.
Outside-Context Villain: Chaos appears randomly in the middle of Metropolis City, uses his ability to induce extreme fear in his opponents to catch the Freedom Fighters off guard completely and kills Johnny Lightfoot, becoming the only villain to successfully kill a Freedom Fighter.
An undead villain that feeds off the fear of his prey, before killing them. It was seen in Sonic the Comic Online having made Amy Rose its target. Deciding that her worst fear was of Johnny Lightfoot rising from his grave and becoming a zombie, the creature took on the form of the heroic rabbit and set his plan into motion.
Emotion Eater: It feeds off the fear of his prey and only has power as long his prey is afraid.
Graceful Loser: Takes his defeat quite well, realising it was defeated, the creature bowed to his prey.
Intangibility: Amy's crossbow bolts pass right though him however his scythe isn't intangible which means he can attack Amy with it.
It Amused Me: The reason why Bean the Dynamite gave The Dice a bomb detonator so he was able to blackmail a casino into letting him play and win as much as he wanted, under threat of K-Boom bombs Bean had planted earlier being detonated all because Bean was bored.
The Void is presented as the most dangerous being to ever exist in Maginary World. She plans to obtain the Precioustone to give herself "unlimited power". To achieve this, she is playing a "game of cosmic proportions" to defeat Lumina and seize control of everything.
Ambiguous Gender: In "The Universe Game" Void seems to be female in this continuity, although it was seemingly male in the game. The writer of that story explained that, having not played Sonic Shuffle (which the story is very loosely based on), he assumed the Void was female based on its somewhat feminine appearance.
Sealed Evil in a Can: It helped to seal Chaos away but went haywire in the process leading to it being seal away by Pochacamac, years later it was unsealed by a previous version of Knuckles who gave up his life resealing it, it then unsealed in the present day accidently by Porker.
The Special Executive Association for Resistance (S.P.E.A.R.) is a paramilitary group on Mobius that came about following the rise of the New Robotnik Empire. Fronted by Mr Gold, they aim to rid the world of Doctor Robotnik without the help of the Freedom Fighters.
Mr Gold is the mysterious leader of the S.P.E.A.R. paramilitary group in the Metropolis Zone. Not only is he behind his group's attack on the Brain Drain Society, an electromagnetic pulse on a fleet of Badniks and a crackdown using tear gas on protestors, he has also been instrumental in influencing the League of Super-Evil Villains into hiring Fockewulf de Shrike as an assassin as well as inviting the Freedom Fighters for a meeting. Gold feels that the Freedom Fighters' efforts in thwarting Dr Robotnik lack mettle and plans for him and his group to bring the dictator down without their help. While he initially appeared to be a Robotnik supporter, he later stated that the banner with Robotnik's face on in the groups headquarters enables him to think like the enemy. Oddly enough, while he seems to disapprove of the Freedom Fighters as a whole, he bears no ill will towards Tails. Gold remains tight-lipped in regards to his true nature however, which the bionics appear to be tied to.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: He wants to stop Robotnik but his methods are extreme, he order Captain Blue to use nerve gas on Windy Wallis and Doctor Genius if they did not surrender while they had hostages.
Captain Blue is a senior member of S.P.E.A.R., a paramilitary group seemingly set up to oppose criminal groups during the New Robotnik Empire. "Blue" is the most visible soldier of the group and is responsible for carrying out missions as ordered by "Mr Gold".
The Face: Of S.P.E.A.R. as the most visible soldier.
A nefarious gang of criminals who fly across Mobius in pursuit of riches and infamy. Led by Captain Plunder, the crooks never associate themselves with either heroes or villains, merely interested in their goals.Tropes for the Sky Pirates as a whole:
A nefarious sky pirate who, while considered a villain, has no love for Doctor Robotnik or his tyrannical regime over Planet Mobius. Plunder is a pirate by name and nature, holding no regard for the law or social norms. He commands a flying galleon which is crewed by a motley bunch, though his only two regular crew members are his undead first mate Filch and Simpson the Cat, the ship's fool and cook. In his last appearance in Sonic the Comic, Plunder was stricken with an ancient curse and now lives his days with eternal bad luck.
It's All About Me: When his crew tried to break him out of prison at the same time as Plunder was escaping, and ended up getting locked in themselves, he casually abandoned them so as not to have to share his treasure.
A Sky Pirate and the ghostly First Mate of Captain Plunder. He is incredibly loyal to his captain and even in death has stuck by him through thick and thin. Filch was killed by Plunder himself, but he acknowledges that this was his own fault for taking the last biscuit without asking. The exact nature of Filch's ghostly aspect is unknown: Sometimes he is just a ghost and cannot touch anything, while sometimes he is a poltergeist and can manipulate his surroundings. Whatever kind of ghost he is, one thing is certain: he is indeed very knowledgeable, having studied books on Plunder's ship, and knowing of some of the Special Zone's more dangerous residents.
An amateur pirate working under Captain Plunder, and is without a doubt one of the most bizarre denizens of Mobius.Resembling black and white cartoon characters of the 1920s, such as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit but mostly Felix the Cat, Simpson is capable of manipulating both himself and his environment at will, mostly for comedic effort. This behaviour can be anything from painting a hole in the floor for an enemy to fall into, shining a light from his eyes after swallowing said light, saluting his fellow crew-members by plucking his ears off his head like a hat and having his eyeballs pop out of their sockets when surprised (which notably disgusts Knuckles). His toon abilities also make him difficult to kill or even slightly injure. While the majority of his behaviour is followed with him being told to shut up, and he regularly irritates Plunder, the Captain keeps him around purely because he's a good cook.
Naïve Newcomer: She thinks the Sky Pirates are Freedom Fighters fighting Robotnik and not pirates just after treasure, this was because the Sky Pirates used an internet banner ad showing Sonic the Hedgehog on a recruitment drive for the Freedom Fighters in order to recruit new crew members but because of Sonic's Broken Pedestal Cream was the only one answer that ad.
Valley Girl: The characterization given to Cream when she finally debuts.
Knuckles The Echidna
A red-furred echidna who lives on the mysterious Floating Island. He is the Guardian of the island, charged with protecting the seven Chaos Emeralds. His dreadlocks allow him to glide for short periods and his spike-knuckled fists can punch through solid rock. Since he has lived most of his life alone, Knuckles can be rather gullible sometimes, though over the course of Sonic the Comic, he has actually become less trusting when it comes to strangers.
Accidental Misnaming: When he goes to the Nameless Zone with Tails, they think that Sonic is Tails' sidekick rather than the other way around and assume Knuckles must be Sonic. He plays along with it after a while, just because he enjoys the fact that there's one place on Mobius that doesn't hero-worship Sonic.
Adaptation Dye-Job: His white fur-marking is changed to a metal necklace and his purple eyes are blue.
Immortality Inducer: The Guardian Emerald when Knuckles dies, it would always resurrect him, giving him Resurrective Immortality, but when the Floating Island's systems fell into disrepair most of Knuckles's memories were lost, as such he does not know the fate of his race and for it to work a being from the spiritual plane must be willing to exist in the mortal realm, unfortunately for the Echidnas, and perhaps all of Mobius, the only willing candidate was Vichama, the God of Death.
I Work Alone: He's lived alone for so long that he is happiest by himself, and is generally not pleased by the numerous invaders and refugees who turn up on his island.
Out of Continues: In order to stop Vichama, the God of Death from trying to kill everyone, Knuckles destroys his Immortality Inducer The Guardian Emerald which makes Knuckles' current life his last life.
The Plan: Dr. Zachary's escape in 'Prisoner' was planned by him in an attempt to find out the location of his lost race. If the Omnicidal Maniac didn't escape no one would complain.
An Echidna from the ancient past who used her magic to summon Sonic to her time. When he appeared, she asked him if there were any echidnas left, but Sonic couldn't bring himself to tell her that other than Knuckles and Doctor Zachary, there were no other echidnas.She later reappeared in Sonic the Comic Online. She first appeared when Sonic got a surge of Chaos Energy letting Tikal sustain her own form. It was later revealed that her spirit resided in his body when he was submerged in Chaos. Later it was also revealed that when Chaos was trapped, Tikal was trapped with him, leading her to over 8,000 years of fear and torture.
A kindly scientist from Planet Earth who somehow crash-landed on Mobius. During his time on this planet, he built a laboratory under the Emerald Hill Zone and befriended Sonic the Hedgehog. He made a deal with the hedgehog to collect a number of Chaos Emeralds to be used for his Retro-Orbital Chaos Compressor, in order to make Mobius a paradise free from evil, and in return help the hedgehog become faster. Unfortunately, an unavoidable accident saw him turn into Doctor Ivo Robotnik, ending his life.

The Lancer: To Sab when he was a member of The Flock.
An elderly echidna who was the father of Tikal and the leader of the ancient tribe of Echidnas. Over 8000 years ago, the Drakon Empire came to ancient Mobius and took over the sacred Echidna emerald mines in an attempt to find a suitable vessel for their unstable new energy source. This 'Chaos Energy' was insecure, but the Echidnas' emeralds were found to be the ideal container. Pochacamac then ordered his men to recapture the emeralds to save the galaxy from the Drakons. The Drakon Empire then waged war on the Echidnas.
Adaptational Heroism: Unlike his other counterparts he does not kill Chao he only kills the Drakons that the Echidnas are at war with.
Deal with the Devil: Pochacamac deliberately made a deal with Vichama, Vichama would be given passage onto the mortal plane, in exchange for helping create The Guardian Emerald to allow Knuckles to become an eternal guardian.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Pochacamac, who is at least a less dubious character than in other continuities (he does not kill Chao, only Drakons, who are at war with the echidnas anyway) and has a good relationship with Tikal.
