Angel Island denizens

     Knuckles the Echidna 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aaa11602ef55746207ecfd39ac5a59c9.png

The hot-tempered guardian of Angel Island and its Master Emerald.

In the original continuity, Knuckles was descended from a long line of Guardians collectively known as the Brotherhood, a very secretive organization that kept Knuckles Locked Out of the Loop as part of his mandatory training. As a result, for a long time Knuckles believed himself The Last of His Kind when in fact a great deal of echidnas, including both his parents, were alive. Unraveling all of the mysteries, conspiracies, and histories of his people made up a very large fraction of the overall plot, not the least because Knuckles for a time had his own comic book alongside Sonic's. Suffice to say by now many of the secrets are out, but the situation has also changed considerably since his debut. After the Cosmic Retcon however, most of Knuckles` original backstory and plotline were discarded and his background is closer to his video game counterpart's, although he retains some traits from his original self.

Knuckles takes his role as Guardian very seriously, almost to a fault. He'll take extreme measures to keep the emerald or his people safe. Due to living largely in isolation, he is somewhat awkward socially. However, despite being tricked on occasion, this version is probably less gullible than other incarnations of his character. He and Sonic are billed as "friendly rivals," as their personalities occasionally clash.

Because his current personality is more closely tied to the video game series, this folder will be used to list tropes exclusive to the comics only. Otherwise, any tropes he has in common with his main series counterpart should be listed under the main series folders

  • A God Am I: He gained near god-like power after becoming "Chaos Knuckles", but managed to avert this by holding onto his sanity. His attempts to Set Right What Once Went Wrong were flawed, but well intentioned.
    • Played straight, however, after becoming Enerjak.
  • Angst: Knuckles could give Shadow a run for his money in this department.
  • Barefisted Monk: Knuckles prefers to use his physical strength rather than rely on his Chaos Powers like the other Guardians.
  • Birthmark of Destiny: The white "Nike swoosh" on his chest. Just a part of his character design in the games, but in the comics it's a trait of all members of Knuckles' family.
  • Breakout Character: In the games, he's a mildly recurring ally. The comics fleshed out his background significantly. Got his own comic book series dedicated to his story, and when that ended, he was arguably the main focus of the entire series (yes, even more than Sonic himself) until Ken Penders left as head writer and Ian Flynn came along.note 
  • Brought Down to Normal: First in the Knuckles Chaotix special, and again after being brought Back from the Dead.
  • Bystander Syndrome: In SU#67, he muses that from his post high on Angel Island, the shattered world feels like somebody else's problem — but he's long since learned better than that, since trouble on the surface will inevitably sooner or later lead to trouble on the island.
  • Character Focus: Due to having his own book, a lot of it. Arguably got to Spotlight-Stealing Squad levels.
  • The Clan: He had a very large family.
  • Determinator: Shares this trait with Sonic.
  • Friendly Rival: For a while, he was billed as "Sonic's Friendly Nemesis."
  • Gagging on Your Words: In Sonic Universe #63:
    Knuckles: Y'see, I need... *ahem* I need your he... your heeeeh...
    Relic: Take your time, use your words.
    Knuckles: (quietly) ...I need your help watching over the Master Emerald...
  • Killed Off for Real: He Got Better.
  • Last of His Kind: He believed he was alone for much of his life. Then it turned out there were far more echidnas than he realized. Then there weren't. Knuckles is playing the trope straight again.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Possibly the go-to character in the series for this trope.
  • Like Brother and Sister: With Sally. The two of them are childhood friends.
  • Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: A bit standard for all Guardian kids, but Knuckles more so due to his father experimenting on giving him chaos powers when he was still inside of his egg.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Traditional among Guardians.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: A disturbing 3 if not 4 occasions:
    • When Knuckles first obtained his Super Mode while searching for a spare Chaos Emerald for his island, he fought Super Sonic in a hidden zone seconds from Robotropolis.
    • After heavily damaging Robotropolis during Mecha Madness, Knuckles stuns Robotnik with a headbutt and explains how he survived before flying himself and Sonic back to Knothole, instead of just finishing Robotnik off right after the headbutt. Knuckles stated that he was heavily damaged after the explosion, and that Mecha Sonic was in worse shape, but since he flew both of them back to Knothole he likely had the power for a final punch. Robotnik was able to rebuild and eventually set up the "Endgame" arc.
    • As Chaos Knuckles he tried to use time travel to reunify his people, preventing the Dark Legion from forming. However he failed each time, his last attempt would've gotten his people roboticized. He never realized that he could just stop Robotnik from rising to power in the first place with time travel and save his people. And considering how he knew the origins of quite a few villains by this point, one could say that Knuckles is to blame to the book's villains.
    • As Enerjak he destroyed Eggman's base and his air fleet. Bizarrely, while he did use his powers to kill Kage, and realized that his people's problems led back to Eggman, he once again never thought to kill Eggman. Eggman rebuilt what was left in the aftermath into the second Death Egg.
  • Nice Hat: In the X Years Later storylines, he gets one belonging to his ancestor. Doubles as a Mythology Gag as he wore a similar one in the Sonic The Hedgehog movie.
  • No Social Skills: Especially prominent here given his family life.
  • Not Quite Flight: Shown to be the result of his Chaos Powers and being a Guardian in this universe.
  • Not So Different: Believe it or not he is this to Thrash the Devil. Both were the last of their kind (with an exception or two on both sides). Both were willing to do anything in their power to protect their people (Thrash by exiling all the echidnas and Knuckles by joining the Dark Legion and as Enerjak). Both wanted to help Mobius as a whole rather than just their kind (Thrash by joining the Downunda Freedom fighters and Knuckles along with the Chaotix). Both have performed a Moral Event Horizon (Again Thrash by exiling the echidnas and Knuckles as Chaos Knuckles and as Enerjak.) And the kicker — both of them have harmed innocent people by doing what they believed was right or going mad with power. Thrash by harming Saffron and Knuckles harming Turbo Tails as Chaos Knuckles.
  • Out of Focus: When Ian Flynn came on as the writer. Not particularly noticeable considering he was still a major character all things considered, but a far cry from when he was essentially the main character when Ken Penders was on board.
  • Parental Abandonment
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His Super and Hyper forms. Lampshaded by Sonic.
    Sonic: "Hyper Knuckles was way stronger! Or are you just afraid of being pink?"
  • Reality Warper: Temporarily, after becoming "Chaos Knuckles."
  • Sixth Ranger: He temporarily joins the Freedom Fighters to get their help hunting the shards of the Master Emerald, as he, in turn, hunts Chaos Emeralds and Gaia Temples with them.
  • Story-Breaker Power: He is effectively omnipotent as Chaos Knuckles, to the point where any conflict with him would have been resolved instantly. So naturally, he was killed off shortly after getting the transformation and when he returned to life, had none of its abilities.
  • Super Strength: It turns out he wasn't born with it. When he was still in his egg, his father, Locke, infused him with the power of a Chaos Emerald so that he would grow up and become Angel Island's guardian.
  • The Rival: Towards Sonic as per usual across the franchise, although it took them a lot longer for them to get on even remotely good terms compared to their main series counterparts.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Mega Drive shows Knuckles shortly after the events of Sonic & Knuckles, where he's dumb enough to fall for Eggman claiming he's changed, and that Sonic is stealing the Chaos Emeralds to become all-powerful, leaving Eggman to steal the Master Emerald again while he goes to fight Sonic. It takes Sonic pointing out he's obviously not Super Sonic for Knuckles to catch on.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: As Enerjak... at first.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: His Dark Enerjak persona from The Silver Saga, needless to say, the power went to his head a bit.

     Relic the Pika 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_chaotix_relicpika_001_resize.png

A new character debuted after the Super Genesis Wave. An archaeologist studying ancient ruins on Angel Island. Trapped on the island by the planetary breakup, she runs into Knuckles while trying to contact the outside world and befriends him. To her delight, Knuckles leaves her to guard the Master Emerald while he helps the Freedom Fighters find the Chaos Emeralds.

  • Adorkable: Loves exploring and always act very excitable when running into new finds.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Even named as such during her introduction.
  • I Am Very British: She seems to have this sort of accent.
  • Meaningful Name: An archaeologist named Relic, go figure.
  • Meganekko: Small as the glasses may be on her face, she fits the bill considering she's pretty much a bookworm.
  • The Not-Love Interest: Relic lives on Angel Island with Knuckles, being something of confidant and emotional support for him. She's essentially filling a void that Julie-Su once occupied. Despite this, they're not actually a couple, though it doesn't stop Vector and Rogue from reading into it.
  • Older Than They Look: Short stature and looks and acts rather childlike at times, though Word of God is that she is actually slightly older than Knuckles (thus in her late teens).
  • Remember the New Guy?: She's a new character who debuted after the Cosmic Retcon, however her and Knuckles have already known each other for a while by the time she makes her first appearance.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Pikas are virtually unknown to the public in general, let alone in fiction note .
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: She actually isn't, though this doesn't stop Rouge from teasing Knuckles about it.
  • Squee!: When she meets Tikal, a member of one of the very ancient tribes she's been researching, face to face.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Fur

     Fixit 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_chaotix_fixitgizoid_001_resize.png

Relic's Gizord partner. Not much is known about him other then that Relic found him after crashing on Angel Island and managed to repair him.

  • Cute Machines: Based on his design, he's very less hostile looking compared to Gemeral.
  • Meaningful Name: He can pretty much fix anything, even Omega when he took a major blow from a Dark Wisps-enhanced Eclipse.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Like Relic, he's also a new edition after the Super Genesis Wave.
  • Satellite Character: For the most part, he largely just hangs around Relic.

Chaotix Detective Agency

     Vector the Crocodile 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/49dc58b7fe44368616629bd0e265f8e0.png

An old friend of Knuckles' and the leader of the Chaotix. Known for his over-bearing street lingo and quarrelsome personality, he's since bulked up since he first appeared and focused on growing as a fighter. In the original continuity, he comes from Downunda, where he was part of a group of orphans raised by an old mentor, along with Duck Bill and Barby Koala.

Due to the Cosmic Retcon however, his current self is more in line with his video game counterpart, so see those pages for more tropes about him. This page will list tropes exclusive to the comic continuity, original and new continuity.

  • Accent Slip Up: When Espio reveals that he knows that Vector originally comes from Downunda and just talks in Jive Turkey to cover up this fact, a surprised Vector lets out a "CROIKEY!", before catching himself.
  • The Big Guy: Since bulking up.
  • Boisterous Weakling: A Downplayed example. In spite of being the biggest and loudest of the Chaotix Vector isn't that strong and while he's reliable and always up for a fight, he's often taken out a lot easier than Mighty or Knuckles. Julie-Su even comments on it during a moment they have trying to understand each other, noting that he's much more talk than muscle. Though later he trains with mighty to turn himself into a full-fledged Boisterous Bruiser.
  • Butt-Monkey: Known to suffer from this from time to time.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Implied by Mighty, who says Vector is nearly as strong as he is now due to undertaking Mighty's training course.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Vector's pretty thick, but he's come through quite a few times for the other Chaotix.
  • Fingerless Gloves: His post-reboot appearance give him fingerless gauntlets
  • Fire-Forged Friends: How he started with Knuckles.
  • Hidden Depths: As shown by his occasional badass moments, concern for his friends, and his past in Downunda.
  • Jive Turkey: Rather obnoxiously.
  • The Lancer: To Knuckles in the previous continuity, graduates to The Leader in the new one.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: With his headphones.

     Espio the Chameleon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7fc9b3746788fd5011a98d773dedc44c.png

The stoic and mysterious member of the Chaotix known for his expertise in stealth and ninja skills. In actuality, he was a spy for the Shinobi Clan sent to keep track of the Guardian. Espio was briefly forced to serve the Iron Dominion before helping to engineer the Shinobi Clan's break from it.

Due to the Cosmic Retcon, however, his current self is more in line with his video game counterpart, so see those pages for more tropes about him. This page will list tropes exclusive to the comic continuity, original and new continuity.

  • The Atoner: After his clan disbands from the Iron Dominion, he's racked with guilt over having spied on his friends for so many years.
  • Becoming the Mask: See Cerebus Retcon below.
  • Cerebus Retcon: Originally just another one of Knuckles' friends. It's now established that he was sent to spy on Knuckles by his clan. However he eventually developed a real friendship with him.
  • Expansion Pack Past: It was established early on that he was from Rainbow Valley. The Iron Dominion arc revealed that he was sent there by the Shinobi Clan as a spy.
  • Gratuitous Ninja: Was actually averted in the original contintuity as he actually was from a legitimate Ninja clan.
  • The Mole: Was actually sent to infiltrate and keep an eye on Knuckles and the rest of the chaotix, before Becoming the Mask.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Serves the Iron Dominion despite being ordered to turn against his friends. Makes sense, when you realize the leader of the Shinobi Clan is heavily implied to be his mother. That said, he was more then giddy when she agreed to break away from the Iron Dominion. Leaving him free and clear to rejoin his friends without worrying about obligation to the clan.
  • The Smart Guy: The most level-headed of the Chaotix. He's also capable of tracking down information that should otherwise be kept secret, from Sonic's one-time Secret Identity "The Sneak" to the location of Sally's royal birthmark.
  • Straight Man: To the more dead serious Knuckles, the more comical Vector, the child-like Charmy, and the more easy-going and friendly Mighty. He's the Only Sane Man of the group.

     Charmy Bee 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9a4cf2628d9c200dc0533974e1abb582.png

The runaway prince of the Golden Hive Colony. He left his home out of a lack of desire to become a king. He eventually returned to accept his lineage, only to have the colony destroyed by the Eggman Empire. Tragedy struck later however when during Eggman's destruction of Knothole, he suffered mental trauma as a result of his Egg Grape machine, reducing his mental capacity to that of a child's.

Due to the Cosmic Retcon however, his current self is more in line with his video game counterpart, so see those pages for more tropes about him. This page will list tropes exclusive to the comic continuity, original and new continuity.

  • Adaptational Job Change: In the games, he's an ordinary bee but in the Archie comics he's a prince.
  • Age Lift: The American manual for Chaotix lists Charmy as sixteen. It wasn't until years later, in Heroes, that Charmy was confirmed to actually be six. This is why Charmy in the comics is depicted as a teen with a girlfriend for much of its run.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Being a bee and all.
  • The Chick: For the Chaotix, prior to his incident.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Since his experience in the Egg Grapes.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: Arguably, since his experience with the Egg Grapes. Ian Flynn has said that he has intended to approach this more seriously, but that circumstances have kept him from doing so. Nevertheless, the other Chaotix were shown being visibly saddened and troubled by what happened to him, Espio in particular.
    • It's possible, though, that with the reboot, this will not be the case anymore.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He and Saffron interfered in an attempt to drain Chaos Knuckles of his powers, as the attempt caused him pain. They succeeded, but the explosion they caused as a result is what caused Dr. Finitevus to go rogue as the Chaos Energy warped his mind.
  • Noble Fugitive: After the destruction of the Golden Hive Colony.
  • Pint Sized Power House: Especially in his initial appearance in which he actually was the size of a real life bee.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Since he caused the explosion that resulted in Dr. Finitevus, see Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!, he's partly to blame for everything that Finitevus has done, like the near genocide of the echidna race, Knuckles turning into Enerjak, and Locke's death.

Allies

     Mighty the Armadillo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/caba1099a3c0e10b5dd8a0348121681d.png

A super-strong armadillo with patience and gentleness to match his might. He seems to be a bit of a big brother surrogate to Ray. He left the Chaotix for some time to search for his missing little sister, who became a member of the Dark Egg Legion, but has since returned.

Since he's technically a character born from the games, Mighty was spared from exile within the new continuity. His history is mostly the same, though he's a former member of the Chaotix rather than an active member, but he still remains close to the group. Now he defends a portion of Rocky Jungle Zone along with his best friend Ray and his mentor, Moss.

  • Adaptation Expansion: Mighty only appeared in two games in the main series, neither of which in a particularly notable fashion. In the comics, he's far more fleshed out.
  • Berserk Button: According to this summary on the Sonic Wiki:
    Snively would have succeeded in capturing all but Sonic the Hedgehog as instructed, if he had not made the one fatal mistake of teleporting Ray the Squirrel prior to Mighty the Armadillo. Enraged at believing his timid friend was dead, Mighty lost all self-control and poured every bit of his fury into his already incredible strength. He proceeded to attack Snively's Beater by ripping off one of its arms and used it as a club to pulverize Snively, practically destroying the mech all by himself. Before the finishing blow could be delivered though, Snively managed to beam Mighty away to a reinforced Egg Grape and then activated a self-destruct program in his mech.
    • And do NOT harm his little sister, as the Sand Blasters quickly learned in Universe #49.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: His gentle, amiable personality makes it easy to forget how terrifyingly destructive he can be if he actually loses his temper.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Do yourself a favor and do not mess with Ray or Matilda. Just...don't.
  • The Big Guy: Not the largest one on the team, but he fills this role with his strength.
  • Deal with the Devil: Acquired his strength from Mammoth Mogul in order to save his parents, though he doesn't remember it. Likely not the case post-reboot.
  • Gentle Giant: Again, not really a giant, but when you're as mild mannered as he is while still being able to tear metal like it's paper, Mighty definitely qualifies for this trope.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Ray, paralleling Sonic & Tails` close friendship. When Mighty went on a quest to find his sister, Ray was the only one he allowed to tag along.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Well he's technically using his shell...
  • Nice Guy: He's got a bit of a temper he has to work on, but Mighty is unquestionably one most kindest characters in the series. An impressed Amy says Sonic could learn a thing from Mighty when he assists her in moving through the jungle.
  • Old Friend: To Sonic, as part of a Mythology Gag to SegaSonic Arcade.
  • Super Strength: Word of God says that his strength is second only to Big the Cat.
  • Tame His Anger: Something he's been trying to work on in the post-Genesis Wave continuity.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Compared to someone with training like Espio, Mighty's more of a conventional brawler, focusing on physical power over any kind of measured style. It's even lampshaded when the Chaotix go missing in Issue #7 of Knuckles's series.
    Julie-Su: "I wouldn't exactly rate them the world's best fighters, Knux!"
    Knuckles: "Ok, so Mighty isn't much on technique, but when you're as strong as he is, does it matter?"
  • Walking the Earth: With Ray, in order to find his long lost sister. In the #45-49 arc of Universe, he succeeds in finding her.

     Ray the Flying Squirrel 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e546b4dbdeb7b2356c018245085164e2.png

An old friend of Mighty's who was trapped in a time warp for years before being rescued. He joined the Chaotix, but followed Mighty when he departed from the team and returned after their mission was finished.

Since he's technically a character born from the games, Ray was spared from exile within the new continuity. His history is unknown, though he did have an encounter with Sonic in a reference to the SegaSonic arcade game that starred him, Sonic and Mighty. He currently lives with both Mighty and Moss in the Rocky Jungle Zone.

  • Breaking Speech: A positive one. He calls out Matilda on her stoic behavior, listing all the crap Mighty had went through to find her and his suffering when she doesn't acknowledge him. It works!.
  • Cowardly Lion: He's rather neurotic, but he'll step up if Mighty really needs him.
  • Happily Adopted: Considers Mighty his brother which by extension, makes Matilda his sister.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He's terrified of being left behind by Mighty again, and joins him in Walking the Earth. He later states his fears to the Chaotix that Mighty will leave him for his sister, but Victor assures him it won't happen. And indeed when they finally reunite with Matilda, Mighty calls Ray over to meet her.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Despite being timid and nowhere near the most skilled of the Chaotix, Ray will always try his best. He's even small and yellow, like the former Trope Namer Bumblebee from Transformers.
  • Killer Rabbit: Tried to invoke this against the Downunda Dark Egg Legion's Wing Dingoes by "transforming" into Super Ray. It served as Ray's first Moment of Awesome and his Funny Moment.
  • Not Quite Flight: Despite his name, he actually glides rather than flies. Which makes sense since that's exactly how real life flying Squirrels move as well.
  • Not So Different: For Matilda which he uses as part of his Breaking Speech to her, citing he had just a hard life as she did but that doesn't mean he'll shun away family because of it.
  • Speech Impediment: A near constant stutter.
  • Year Outside, Hour Inside: Was trapped in a pocket zone for years, thanks to contact with a Power Gem. For him, it was a relatively short period of time.

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. And also because of the Penders lawsuit.

     Julie-Su 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/162px-449px-J-su1_8356.jpg

A tough, fighting-geared soldier and former member of the Dark Legion. She joined Knuckles soon after defecting from the Dark Legion. Her half-siblings Lien-da and Kragok hid their relations from her via mindwipe, as well as the fact that she is a descendant of Dimitri. Julie-su is strong willed, quick to anger, and compassionate, much like her sparring partner/boyfriend (and future partner in the Light/Dark Mobius timelines) Knuckles. She is also a distant relative of Knuckles.

A Ken Penders creation and thus phased out of the book due to legal issues.

  • Badass in Distress: Was banished to another world by Thrash.
  • Cain and Abel: Despised by Lien-Da and Kragok who disposed of her as child. Naturally, after coming to learn all her older siblings have done, Julie-Su vents an equal disgust and hatred for them whenever they meet.
  • Cyborg: One of few Echidnas still with their original Dark Legion cybernetics.
  • Dark Action Girl: Before switching sides, and losing the "Dark" part.
  • Determinator
  • Distaff Counterpart: To an extent, shares a lot of personality traits similar to Knuckles.
  • Expy: She was given a Canon expy in the form of Shade in Sonic Chronicles.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: She was originally going to be armed with a sawed-off shotgun, but her weapon was changed to a blaster pistol due to the negative stereotypes surrounding the former weapon.
  • Grumpy Bear
  • The Gunslinger
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Love at First Punch
  • Mook–Face Turn: Initially, she seems to be (and as far as she knows is) a random Dark Legion soldier
  • Parental Abandonment: After the death of both her mother, Mari-su, and Luger, the Grandmaster before Kragok, she was raised by a kindly Dark Legion couple who were ordered to keep the truth of her birth a secret.
  • Put on a Bus: Sent into exile by Thrash alongside the rest of the Echidnas; not returning due to legal matters. Not that it didn't make it any sadder for Knuckles after he lost Thrash and realized he'll never see her again.
  • Samus Is a Girl: She's introduced as a featureless cloaked Dark Legion mook and Knuckles first mistook her for a boy.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Lien-Da.
  • Sixth Ranger: Last of the Chaotix to join, with the exception of Ray and Saffron.
  • Tsundere
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Saffron's Girly Girl.
  • Un-person: According to Ken Penders of all the characters removed, she is one of the three who are truly banned from appearing in the comic. This was due to the fact that one of the stipulations he tried to force on Archie and Sega was that the future he penned had to be the canon one in the comics, which means she was essential in creating it (due to having a daughter with Knuckles). When both companies refused, Julie-Su was cast out of the comic since she was pretty much considered Penders property.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She and Vector quarrel a lot, but still manage to serve together on the same team.
  • Women Are Wiser: A female Knuckles albeit with a slightly more rational temper.

     Saffron 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saffron_bee_2_584.jpg

Charmy's childhood friend and fiancée. Joined the Chaotix after they fled the destruction of Golden Hive Colony.

A Ken Penders creation and thus phased out of the book due to legal issues.

     Archimedes the Fire Ant 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/archimedes_9237.jpg

Knuckles' telepathic fire ant mentor, who helped him during his first ordeal with Enerjak. Archimedes is part of a long lineage of fire ants who have aided the Brotherhood of Guardians, and was his father Locke's mentor as well.

A Ken Penders creation and thus phased out of the book due to legal issues.

  • Hypocrite: He, along with his fellow fire ants, criticized the Brotherhood of Guardians for isolating themselves from the rest of the planet despite all the good they could accomplish, yet they never decided to take action against Dr. Robotnik themselves. Keep in mind that the fire ants were the ones who taught the Bo G their powers; Archimedes alone could've assassinated Robotnik.
  • Impossibly Awesome Magic Trick: Once he's fully revealed, it's explained that all his apparent powers were "smoke and mirrors" except his fire breath. However, afterwards his ninja-style disappearing act might as well be actual teleportation.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: His flame breath was shown to be equal to Dulcy's in Battle Royale. Dulcy is a dragon many times his size.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Put on a Bus: No longer appears in the comic due to legal matters.
  • Telepathy
  • Teleportation: Though he claims it's just elaborate smoke and mirrors.
  • Trickster Mentor: First met Knuckles as part of an elaborate scenario that first made him appear to be a villain.
