Characters of the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series that are part of the citizen of Mobotropolis.
From the TV Show
Characters introduced in the Sonic Sat AM show and thus were spared from the lawsuit. Only Maximillian's design really suffered from it, putting him closer in design from the show then how the earlier issues portrayed him.
On-Again-Off-Again King of Mobotropolis and father of Princess Sally and King Elias. Was lost in the Zone of Silence for years, where he was mentally manipulated by Ixis Naugus and convinced to offer him the throne. After being freed from the zone, suffering crystallization, getting better, being paralyzed from the waist down, getting better, and finally being poisoned to the point of becoming catatonic before getting better...despite ending up paralyzed once more and a bit senile, he was forced to abdicate the throne. Then he got better and became king once more.
In the post-Super Genesis Wave world, King Acorn is a bit younger and has been restored to full health and mentality as well as openly accepting of Sonic and the Freedom Fighters. Since his original name Maximillian was coined by Ken Penders, his first name was changed to Nigel.
Post Cosmic Wave
- Beware the Nice Ones: He's a fairly jovial fellow and very good natured to many. But, as shown before he allowed Knuckles, Amy and Team Dark to search for the Master Emerald pieces and the Dark Arms in his kingdom, he's not one to be trifled with:Nigel: [After Rouge asks for clearance to search his kingdom] Of course, the openness of your request is appreciated. But I am deeply concerned I'm only being informed [about the Black Arms] now. The Black Arms threaten all of us, and so everyone should be informed of their threat. Commander Towers has my deepest respect. He has done much to reform G.U.N. But the old regime still casts a long shadow. The G.U.N of old put my father on edge. It's made me wary to trust Dr. Eggman and Dr. Snively once. I would be very disappointed if things were to slip back into their old ways. Am I clear?
- Cosmic Retcon: The events of the end of Worlds Collide have changed Maximillian. He's no longer enfeebled and losing his mind, and he's much more kind and optimistic, as well as being ruler once more. Sonic even lampshades this is one of the few good changes the Genesis Wave left in it's wake. He's also no longer "Maximilian", but "King Nigel". "King Max" was a name thought up by Ken Penders, so it had to go.
- Laser Blade: In the new universe he has a pair of bracelets like his daughter's that project an energy sword and shield.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: In the new timeline, he's much more willing to hear people out and make wiser decisions for the sake of his kingdom.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Likewise will to defend his kingdom if he has to.
- Same Character, but Different: He's still King Acorn, but without most of the negative traits of the older universe, as well as being slightly younger and no longer sickly. During his introduction, Sonic internally remarks on how his much friendlier disposition is a markedly improvement over the previous version, taking it as a sign that the Genesis Wave might have changed some things for the better.
- Warrior King: King Acorn is now willing and able to fight the bad guys directly, wielding an energy sword and shield similar to his daughter's armblades. He failed, but mainly because he was outnumbered 3-to-1 by the Hooligans. Even then, he was holding his own till Bark waylaid him while he was busy with Nack and Bean.
- Weak, but Skilled: He's not a particularly fit guy, but makes up for it with a fairly brutal fighting style.
- Aesop Amnesia: As established in issue 233, he repeatedly dismissed Harvey Who's advice against trusting Kodos, Naugus, and Robotnik, as well as exiling Nate Morgan. One would think after all the times his ignoring Harvey bit him and the kingdom in the ass, he'd actually learn to listen to him.
- Arranged Marriage: He and Alicia are Happily Married, despite being in one of these. His attempts to force Sally into one... haven't gone so well.
- The Artifact: In universe, as shown by his strict adherence to tradition and desire to restore the monarchy.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Twice. Both times by Ixis Naugus.
- Cool Hat: The Crown of Acorns. See previous item.
- Cool Sword: The Sword of Acorns. Since been destroyed.
- Dating What Daddy Hates: Didn't exactly care for Sonic for quite some time.
- Guile Hero: At his best, King Max could be quite cunning, and it was especially noticeable after his attempts to free Elias left him in a wheelchair. When Sally was kidnapped by Nack's gang and the Freedom Fighters can't get the only captured member to talk, Max calmly wheels himself in, dismisses Sonic and his friends, and has his guards beat the prisoner until he's given a location down to the smallest detail. When the Xorda destroy Eggman's empire and he's begging for help, Max forces him to give half of his territory to the Kingdom before even lifting a finger. Granted he admits that Eggman won't keep his end of the bargain, but he decided to Let No Crisis Go to Waste.
- Grumpy Old Man: Spent a long period of the book always complaining about something or other, grumbling about changes to his kingdom.
- Head-in-the-Sand Management: In regards to Kodos, Ixis Naugus, and the original Dr. Robotnik, Harvey Who repeatedly warned him that they couldn't be trusted, but Max refused to heed his warnings and instead relied on the Source of All for guidance. Needless to say, all of Mobius paid the price for Max's idiocy.
- Horrible Judge of Character: He didn't see Julian Robotnik's true colors until it was too late. As we find out in issue 233, he has a history of this. Harvey Who, his adviser at the time, specifically told him not to trust Warlord Kodos, not to let Ixis Naugus remain in the kingdom, not to exile Nate Morgan, and not to take Robotnik in, but Max ignored him every single time. Possibly justified as Max revealed much earlier that, except for Sally and Elias, the Acorn royal family used a magic pool called "The Source of All" to guide their actions, meaning Max never developed the right skills for ruling. That or the Source told him to trust them for unknown reasons. Either way, there's a reason history has given him the title "Maximillian the Cursed".
- Meaningful Name: His moniker of Maximillian the Cursed. Sad, yes, but fitting, since Max's blind trust in Obviously Evil individuals like Kodos, Ixis Naugus, and the original Robotnik led to multiple tragedies, not the least of which was Robotnik turning all of Mobius into a polluted dystopia for ten years.
- Papa Wolf: When Elias is captured by Robotnik's forces, King Max dons his armor, assembles his army, and takes the Sword of Acorns into battle; storming Robotnik's fortress. He personally cut through the Robots to save his son, even dismissing Sonic as his bodyguard with an order to save him as he valued Elias's safety over his own.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Though how reasonable can vary from writer to writer and on Max's own mental state. Though he was at his most reasonable and heroic in between his rescue from Naugus's Brainwashing and his descent into senility. During this period Max started to peel back many of his prejudices and made more calculated decisions, eventually coming to approve of Sonic's relationship with Sally and get his country back on its feet.
- Sanity Slippage: After being thrown into the Zone of Silence, brainwashed, rescued only to start turning into crystal, being brainwashed again, being paralyzed from the waist down, recovering, and then being poisoned and being wheel chair ridden again, is it any wonder King Max started to go senile?
- Took a Level in Jerkass: He's been known as a kind father and has his nicer moments, but just as often he turns around and forces more and more difficulties on his children. Some of this is due to his strict adherence to royal tradition, and some of it's from the sheer amount of trauma he's been through.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Openly resentful of the kingdom's transition to a democratic republic, Maximillian attempted to restore the monarchy by any means necessary, which would lead to Geoffrey and Sonic's trip to the Special Zone and obtaining of a Chaos Emerald...which was then promptly delivered to Naugus. Max would be indirectly responsible for Elias' deposing and the attempt on his life, and the near takeover of the Council of Acorn. All because he didn't like the idea of sharing power with the people.
- Warrior King: During the Great War and during his internment in the Zone of Silence. His attempt to slip back into this role didn't go so well...
- Why We Are Bummed Communism Fell: In this case "Why We're Bummed The Monarchy Isn't In Charge Anymore" because even in his senility, Max is openly resentful about the kingdom's transition to democracy.
- Younger Than They Look: He's only in his late fifties, but all of the trauma he's endured, plus Sanity Slippage, has prematurely aged him; he looks more like he's in his late sixties or early seventies.
The caregiver of the Freedom Fighters after they escaped Knothole during Eggman's invasion.
- Cool Old Lady: Even with the Freedom Fighters grown and doing their own thing, she'll more then help them out with advice when they need it.
- Good Old Ways: When Sally was younger, she began to expect to be able to rely on technology to be able to make tactical decisions, until Rosie showed her how she wouldn't always be able to depend on it.
- Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have!: Still look quite cute for someone her age.
- Interspecies Adoption: She essentially became a second mother to Hope Kintobor.
- Parental Substitute: Acted as one to the Freedom Fighters during their childhood.
From the Games
The kindly mother of young Cream, She is very much a pacifist, never leaving the city of Mobotropolis. She worries extensively about her daughter, but allows her to tag along with the Freedom Fighters regardless. Can be seen in the company of King Acorn of late.
- Actual Pacifist: Unlike her daughter, Vanilla doesn't get involved in any action, let alone violence, and firmly stays at home.
- Good Parent: A very caring mother who only wants the best for her daughter and raised Cream like a princess, though in a strict manner, resulting in Cream becoming the incredibly polite girl she is right now.
- Humanoid Female Mobian: Has a distinctly more human build than most of the other Mobian characters.
- Open-Minded Parent: Seems to be one. Why else does she allow her six-year-old child to roam around the world and get involved in all sorts of adventures? Though Cream is a lot more capable than she appears and is constantly accompanied and protected by some the world's most famous and powerful heroes, so Vanilla doesn't really have much to worry about.
Old Universe Characters (Pre-Genesis Wave)
Characters from the original universe before issue #252. These characters most likely are permanently erased from the new timeline thanks to the Super Genesis Wave.
- Cool Sword: The sword of Light, given to him by Sir Connery.
- Dark Furred Redhead
- Dual Wielding: Wields a pair of exotic-looking... daggers?
- Happily Married: With Megan, who he met after running away from home.
- Heir Club for Men: He and Sally have been drawn into this by their father on several occasions, and his step-daughter Alexis is ineligible to succeed him.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: He originally just wanted a life of adventure, and then to live quietly with his new family. Elias constantly doubts his ability to rule, and Ixis Naugus wastes no time attempting to appeal to Elias's desire to "return to the simple life" when making his bid for the throne.
- King Incognito: During his brief time as a runaway and his time as a secret agent.
- Long-Lost Relative
- Modest Royalty
- Prince On a White Pasha.
- Put on a Bus: He ran away from his responsibilities (and the book) for several issues. He was later phased out of the book entirely due to legal matters.
- Reasonable Authority Figure
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- Warrior Prince
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Like Sally, he struggled to earn his father's approval. This clashes with his duty as King, and deciding to reform the kingdom into a Republic only made their relationship more difficult.
- The Wise Prince
- Arranged Marriage
- Dark Furred Redhead
- Good Old Ways: Rather old fashioned, but somewhat averts it by knowing the ways of the past don't quite apply to today. This is in sharp contrast to her husband.
- Happily Married: Despite Max's behavior and fall into senility, Alicia continues to remain by his side.
- Mobian Popsicle
- Proper Lady
- Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit.
- Demoted to Extra: Dylan, Hamlin, and Penelope's reasons for joining the council, as they didn't get much chance to make a difference when in the shadow of the other Freedom Fighters.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat: Though they mean well, they've caused a lot of frustration for Sonic.
- Rosemary has butted heads with King Naugus when he tries to overstep his authority.
- Not So Different: During the Great War, King Max allowed Julian Kintobor, an Overlander note , to assume the position of warlord to help defeat the Overlanders despite the warnings of his adviser, Harvey Who. This caused the first Robotnik War. The council was formed to prevent the royal family from making such mistakes again. Most of the council allowed Ixis Naugus, a known enemy, to assume the position of king to help resolve the Nicole "problem," with warnings from Sonic falling on deaf ears. The Source of All from Max's entry above and Naugus' magic intensifying the council's grudges provide a shared magic sway on both parties. Additionally, Max's reluctant exile of Nate Morgan following a crisis situation is a parallel to the council's reluctant decision to exile Nicole after the barrage of enemy attacks that ensured Naugus' rise to power.
- And just to drive the point home, Naugus planned to use a magic spell to enslave the people to his will to facilitate his plans of world domination, much like Robotnik roboticizing people for the same goal. And in both cases Geoffrey was aware of these threats, but was convinced by Naugus to keep quiet because the ruling authority wouldn't believe him.
- A more humorous example: with Naugus missing, he was working on his spell/fighting the SFF, Hamlin suggested they proceed with ratifying the new constitution without him. Dylan pointed out that this was a violation of protocol, something that Sonic tended to do, aggravating Hamlin to ask to put it to vote to shut him up.
- Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: The Council is often divided between those who generally support Sonic and co. (Uncle Chuck and Rotor), the more obstinate members who distrust them or the monarchy for various reasons (Hamlin, Rosemary), and those that sit somewhere in the middle (Dylan, Penelope).
- Put on a Bus: The council was quietly removed from the book. Mobotropolis is back to a monarchy it seems.
- Reasonable Authority Figures: When they're not disagreeing or being obstructive anyway.
- Be the Ball: When Larry Lynx organizes them in a counter-attack against Robotnik's forces, this was one of the team's maneuvers. Hamlin would curl into a ball and his teammates would launch him like a projectile into their enemies, his girth taking them down with ease.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Played With. On the one hand, pettiness aside, Hamlin makes a number of good points about how subverting the rulings of the council shows Sally and the others to be above the law and hurts the democracy of the country. On the other hand, Hamlin's alternatives are often short-sighted and detrimental.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat: During his tenure on the Council this was Hamlin's main characterization. He received far fewer sympathetic moments than Dylan, Penelope, and the others.
- Pig Man: An anthropomorphized pig, but he fits the trope well enough.
- The Resenter: A key point of his character.
- Even before joining the Council of Acorn Hamlin always had a resentful streak. When he debuted with Geoffrey St. John, Hamlin was incredibly suspicious of him, even when St. John saved his life. Though St. John was being shifty, the anger was in part because of how much better Geoffrey outperformed him and the other cadets. This only got worse when he joined the Council.
- Sally actually called him out on it at one point, but he just gave an excuse he was making sure they were protecting the kingdom properly despite the fact a lot of Sonic and Sally's decisions on almost always on-the-spot ones and whatever he and the council try to decide on usually put the kingdom in more danger without them realizing it.
- Somebody Doesn't Love Raymond: Placed among numerous attempts by Flynn to rectify Sally's character, Hamlin's newfound resentment was likely an attempt at this trope. Though it doesn't go that far story-wise, Sally is visibly very upset by this revelation and the measures Hamlin took to spite her.
- Art Evolution: Like many of the minor characters his design was tweaked over the years. He was given a more anthropomorphized look to put him in line with the typical Sonic character aesthetic; he even received a more defined head and neck.
- Big Damn Heroes: One of his most notable actions in the comic came when an amnesiac Sonic was tricked into attacking the other Freedom Fighters. When he beats his way through the major members, Antoine organizes a counter-attack with the Substitute Freedom Fighters (before they were known as such). Sonic get's through them easily, but it was then that Dylan knocked him out with a cheap shot, saving the day.
- Improvised Lockpick: He can use his quills for this function.
- Prickly Porcupine: Dylan the Porcupine.
- The Smart Guy: When was a Freedom Fighter, he'd often play this to the team being the calmer head and rational thinker. Even on the Council, he's one of the least likely to act on petty grudges.
- The Chew Toy: Arlo is injury prone. His first outing with the cadets even leaving him out of action with a wound he sustains from a turret, then an amnesiac Sonic beats him up, then he's injured by collapsing debris. Unlike say, Snively, Arlo's injuries aren't played for a joke and the final one forced him to retire.
- Demoted to Extra: All of the Substitute Freedom Fighters grappled with this trope, but Arlo had it the worst. The cadets went on to other roles after the Substitute Freedom Fighters disbanded. Arlo simply went into retirement, the only cadet to do so.
- Gamebreaking Injury: During their attempt to retake Robotropolis after Robotnik's death, a ceiling falls on Arlo. His injuries were severe enough for him to leave active duty.
A teenaged mongoose who was rescued by Sonic and developed a crush on him. Mina, like Sonic, has Super Speed, but did not feel she was capable of serving as a Freedom Fighter. She discovered she had a talent for singing and went on to become a pop idol. Although it took quite a long time, she eventually got over her crush.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: She used her status as a public icon to get the people to stand up and do things for themselves rather than always relying on the Freedom Fighters, as well as raise awareness concerning possible problems with Nicole after the Iron Dominion's occupation of New Mobotropolis. Naugus used this to spread a Hate Plague to turn himself and Nicole into a Villain with Good Publicity and Hero with Bad Publicity respectively and eventually get NICOLE exiled from the city completely. When Mina goes to Freedom HQ to make amends with Nicole, she's told that she got what she wanted.
- Breakout Character: Her character design has become very popular among Sonic fans, that some of her supporters wish for her to appear in the next future Sonic the Hedgehog video games. But, still no word from the Sega Corporation.
- Character Development: Mina started out as a lonely girl, uncertain of herself, who kept pining for Sonic and tried unsuccessfully to be a Freedom Fighter. Eventually, she grew past her crush and realized her true calling was music.
- Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs
- Genki Girl
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Averted. Mina has always been fully clothed, often with a tank top, shorts, gloves, and boots.
- Happily Married: To Tails, of all people, in the "X Years Later" comics. It's actually pretty cute, even if we never get an explanation as to how they got together or what happened to Ash.
- Idol Singer
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Backed off once she realized Sonic's feelings for Sally.
- Loving a Shadow: Towards Sonic, who saw her only as a good friend.
- My God, What Have I Done?: After she learns what Nicole was really going through during the Iron Dominion arc, and when seeing people taking her message differently than she intended.
- Official Couple: With Ash in the main storyline, with Tails in the "X Years Later" arcs.
- One Side of the Story: Hoping to spread awareness regarding possible problems with NICOLE being compromised again after the Iron Dominion incident, Mina uses her status as an Idol Singer to her advantage to start spreading such messages with her music. It's only after her first song is sent that she discovers from Sonic and Sally that NICOLE had actually broken free from the Iron Queen's control, but was working undercover to protect as many people as she could, which Mina was not aware of beforehand.
- Pimped-Out Dress: Has a red, Chinese style dress she wears from time to time.
- Soap Box Sadie: After the Iron Dominion, Mina decided to use her music to try and make people be more active and productive.
- Misaimed Fandom: Hers, thanks to Ixis Naugus.
- Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit; actually a Karl Bollers creation.
- Super Speed
- Unwitting Pawn: Mina's attempt to spread her message about standing up and getting the people to do things for themselves instead of relying on the Freedom Fighters was used by Ixis Naugus to spread fear all over New Mobotropolis, take over the throne, and banish Nicole from the city.
- Before that, she was one to Mogul, who activated her super speed in order to use her for his plans at a later date.
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair
Mina Mongoose's manager/boyfriend. He's not exactly Sonic's biggest fan. He's tried to put his jealousy behind him, but that doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon.
- Clingy Jealous Guy: Didn't much care for Sonic at first, thinking he'd end up taking Mina away from him.
- Cool Shades
- Green-Eyed Monster: At first.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Depending on the Artist; though he's mostly drawn fully clothed, he sometimes goes around without pants, like Antoine.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Official Couple: With Mina.
- Perky Goth: Well, comparatively.
- Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit; actually a Karl Bollers creation.
- Understanding Boyfriend: He tries to be, and has gotten a bit better at it.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: In the "X Years Later" arcs, Mina has inexplicably married Tails. We never find out what happened to Ash after this.
Knothole, and later New Mobotropolis's chief physician. Dr. Quack was used by the original Robotnik and Snively by threatening his family, forcing him to cooperate with their plan to kill Princess Sally. Fortunately for everyone, he used his medical prestige to deceive them. Dr. Quack has since lost his eye in the war with Eggman, and retired from field duty.
- Combat Medic
- Dr. Jerk: A lighter, softer, more curmudgeonly example.
- Eyepatch of Power: He seemingly lost his eye in an incident with a landmine. When Sonic sees him again, Dr. Quack has an eyepatch.
- I Have Your Wife: Was forced into cooperating with Robotnik during the events of Endgame when his family was held hostage.
- Punny Name
- Put on a Bus: The Penders Lawsuit prevents him from ever returning.
- Shout-Out: His children's names are a shout out to Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
- When drawn by Jon Gray, the head of his cane would always mirror his own expression, just like Wade Duck on Garfield and Friends.
Sadly they were creations of Ken Penders and have now been retconed out due to legal issues.
- Best Friends-in-Law: Bernie and Charles were always very friendly. After Charles's attempt to roboticize Jules robs him of his free will, Bernie never blamed him for it. She felt that his state was preferable to death as they could bring him around someday.
- Depending on the Artist: While Jules has always been blue, Bernie's fur color fluctuates from blue to purple.
- Happily Married: A wartime couple that withstood a coup; a separation from their child; a fatal injury to the husband, who was robotized and then forced to subject his wife to the same horrific experience; a decades-later derobotization for only half of the couple as Jules retained a robotic existence as his wife became organic again... and yet they persist as a couple no less in love than they ever were. They don't get much attention, but they're likely the standout example in the series for this trope.
- Last of His Kind: Jules, who is the titular subject of "The Last Robian."
- Mama Bear and Papa Wolf: Getting between them and their son would be a bad idea. They've stood up to some of the most formidable foes in the series when necessary.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: As said in Uncle Chuck's entry, he and his brother brought Julian Kintobor to King Max and harassed a young Regina.
- Put on a Bus: Unfortunately phased out of the comic due to legal issues. Even if Penders hadn't created them, being the parents of Sonic (a Sega character) might still have gotten them booted from the reboot continuity.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He gave one to Scourge, dismissing him as the spiteful jealous coward he was.
- Retired Badass: Both of them were agents during the Great War. Now you know where Sonic gets it from.
- Unwilling Roboticisation: This really is a trend with Sonic's family, isn't it?
- Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Rosemary.
- Cool Sword: Amadeus.
- Colonel Badass: Amadeus was a veteran of the Great War and the commander of the Royal Army.
- Dark Furred Redhead: Rosemary
- Depending on the Artist: Rosemary has gone from looking like an older, feminine version of Tails, to her current, more distinctive red-haired appearance. Now people say she looks too much like Sally...
- Eye Scream: A flashback shows how he got his eye patch. He, Jules, Bernie, Charles, and a team of Mobians ambushed an Overlander garrison. In the fight the Garrison's commander, Colin Kintober, shot him in the eye.
- Eyepatch of Power: Amadeus
- Happily Married
- Parental Abandonment: Both Rosemary and Amadeus were separated from their son, but have since been reunited with Tails.
- Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit; actually Micheal Gallagher creations. Regardless of who created them, being the parents of Tails (a Sega character) might still have gotten them booted from the reboot continuity.
- Unwilling Roboticisation: Amadeus and Rosemary were the first to be cured of it, in fact.
- Velvet Revolution: The Prowers try to lead a revolution in order to transform the Kingdom of Acorn into a democracy, but Elias proves to be reasonable and the two end up working out a compromise that makes everyone happy. Somewhat justified, seeing as under King Max they lost both Mobotropolis and Knothole Village, were dragged into the Great War, and were subject to Robotnik's tyranny for years.
- Rosemary does show some continued distrust of the monarchy, despite this. Which may explain why she seemed okay with putting Naugus in charge, even though he had tried to kill her son a few times in the past.
Introduced as a Robian who ruled the domain of Rob o' the Hedge, General D'Coolette was eventually captured, deroboticized and rehabilitated. Many of the later stories involving him revolved around his son, Antoine, trying to impress him, feeling he didn't measure up to his father. Sadly, the General died in issue 168, but not before making clear how proud he was of his son, and giving approval of his son's relationship with Bunnie.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: As a Robian, in his "High Sheriff" personae.
- A Death in the Limelight: The General's biggest role is his final one where he speaks with Antoine and Bunnie as he lays dying in the hospital.
- Expy: For the Sheriff of Nottingham when he was roboticized and known as the "High Sheriff."
- Four-Star Badass
- Killed Off for Real: Fatally poisoned by Antoine's Moebius doppelganger.
- Nice Guy: After breaking his brainwashing, Armand was actually a fairly affable and fun person to be around. After his arch enemy, Rob is stalking him, seeing if he was still evil; Armand decides to invite Rob to spend time with him and the other Freedom Fighters.
- Properly Paranoid: Charles and Jules rescued a younger Robotnik and brought him to the kingdom thinking he'd need help while King Acorn agreed to it out of guilt for turning Nate away. Of them it was Armand who was wholly opposed to the idea submitting only becuase the king ordered it.
A group a heroic trainee animals chosen by Sally to help her when the original Freedom Fighters were capacitated. Although well trained, they ended up mostly as the Freedom Fighter's support network during their early days.
