     Nack the Weasel 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nack_the_weasel.png

An amoral bounty hunter who works for whoever pays him. Usually all business, his dealings with the Freedom fighters have made it personal, and he won't hesitate to take an opportunity to make Sonic and his friends' lives miserable. While he has a good track record against Sonic himself, Nack seems to have women troubles with the FF's ladies...

  • Adaptational Badass: Although he is still a comical villain, Archie Comics Nack gets close to killing Sonic while his video game counterpart could hardly run away without tripping over his own two feet.
  • Affably Evil: He describes himself as a sensible cut-throat.
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Cain and Abel: According to the Encyclopedia, rumor has it that Nack killed his sister to snuff out the competition.
  • Cold Sniper: He is one of the few Mobians (other than the Echidnas) who uses guns, and is VERY proficient with them.
  • Cool Bike: The Marvelous Queen.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Though he and Mogul took snipes at each other in prison, when Mogul rescues them all Nack gives him "one free job" as thanks.
  • Glass Cannon: Nack arms himself with a lot of powerful weaponry, but his durability is fairly low. In his debut he outwits and defeats Sonic, ready to take him to Eggman. Then he's blindsided and taken out by a single punch from Knuckles. His later appearences have similar displays of these strengths and weaknesses.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He's actually proved a problem for the Freedom Fighters at times (as he proudly points out, he bested Sonic twice) but he's still for the large part a bumbling goofball.
  • Insistent Terminology: Refers to his gun as a "blaster", presumably for the purposes of Bowdlerization. Justified in that despite looking like a revolver, it fires energy shots rather than bullets.
  • Iron Butt Monkey
  • It's Personal: While he's usually profit motivated and self preservational, he tends to start vendettas with heroes that offer him especially smug or humiliating defeats, commonly a case of...
  • I Was Beaten by a Girl: To the point it is something of an escalating Running Gag. After kidnapping Sally, she escaped him with a Groin Attack. He spent several bouts against the Freedom Fighters targetting her in particular for this, though was robbed an ideal revenge by Amy who delivered him a sound beating. He turned his vendetta onto her in a later story, but was blindsighted by Cream in time.
    Nack: I took out Sonic the Hedgehog! Twice! Why do you broads keep giving me trouble?
    Amy: Oh, stop whining! Sally didn't hit you that hard!
  • Near-Villain Victory:
    • He comes dangerously close to killing both Sonic and Knuckles with a single bullet from his sniper rifle in issue 271. The only reason he misses is because Metal Sonic drops in front of him just as he was about to fire. The scariest thing is that Sonic had no clue just how close he came to dying because no one even suspected he was there!
    • Similarly, despite his comical rivalry with Sally, he did nearly take her out twice over. The first case was stopped due to Mina Taking the Bullet, and the second was prevented by Amy. His only consolation was that he did at least finally make Sally take him seriously their final face-off.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: As he himself lampshaded, he's managed to rival and even successfully capture Sonic for a client more than once. And yet so many of the lower tier Freedom Fighters (often the female ones) keep finding ways to take him out like a joke.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Sally for a long while, due to a grudge over a Groin Attack. After being humiliatingly dealt with by Amy after finally cornering her, he turned his vendetta to her for a while.
  • Smug Snake
  • Too Dumb to Live: Post-Genesis Wave Team Hooligan is hired to get the Chaos Emerald before the Chaotix in Sonic Universe 64 by Eggman. Nack is not ignorant to the fact of what kind of person Eggman is and have been betrayed by him before and once was almost killed by him and yet he still takes jobs from him. Bark seems to be the only person who sees this as a problem. That said, he does justify his decision in working for Eggman by stating that Eggman intended to fix the planet for his own purposes and that it wasn't going to just fix itself.

     Bean and Bark 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f2e51e19e129a052ed91fa26583bac1a.png

One's an overtalkative, more-than-slightly bonkers duck who can spontaneously generate bombs; the other's a mute, hefty polar bear. Together, they cause crime. Usually in the employ of another villain, Bean and Bark don't seem to carry any sort of grudge against the heroes, and are mostly in it to earn a quick buck and have fun. Both characters first made their appearance in the Sonic franchise back in a game called Sonic the Fighters.

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the games, Bark was described as a Gentle Giant with a kind heart and both him and Bean were grouped up as part of "Sonic's friends" in the story of Sonic the Fighters. Both were turned into villains in the comic, likely a result of the writer not knowing any better due to their Japanese bios having not been officially translated at the time.
  • Affably Evil: They aren't particularly malicious and don't seem to hold their various defeats or imprisonments against the heroes much. Bean, in particular, is often very friendly in his... extremely odd way.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Bean really likes shiny objects. In his debut he has the Freedom Fighters on the ropes until Fiona tosses a set of shiny keys outside and he excitedly runs after them.
  • Berserk Button: A good way to get Bean's attention is to say his bombs suck. Charmy exploits this at one point.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Bean can be surprisingly devious when he's not busy being totally loopy. During his fight with Espio in the Chaos Emerald Championship, he acts like he's half-asleep and barely paying attention to his opponent to bait him into getting reckless, then casually trips him up and out of the ring. When Espio realizes that he was being played all along, Bean's only response is a decidedly unsettling Psychotic Smirk.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Bean would be downright formidable if he weren't so insane. Best demonstrated when he single-handedly prematurely detonates the Babylon Rogue's entire arsenal in Sonic Universe #23. Even the Rogues lampshade this, thankful he doesn't work for the Armada.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Bean (or perhaps an ancestor) in #50. Their first official appearance is #160.
  • Funny Schizophrenia: Bean.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: In one issue, they switch sides from Mogul to Sally and back.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: They are almost entirely comic relief and seemingly regarded both in-universe and out as more of a general nuisance than a genuine threat.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: They take part in a lot of the comic's slapstick, usually with a smile in Bean's case.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em/Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Both of them (though Bark in particular) are pretty pragmatic when it comes to fights they can't win.
  • Mad Bomber: Again, Bean.
  • Medium Awareness: Bean, post-Super Genesis Wave. During one issue he notices his word balloons are coming out upside down, and tries to stop fighting until they're back to normal.
  • The Nicknamer: Bean's called Sonic "Speedy McQuickness", "Mr. Needlemouse" and "Speedy Cheese"; called Tails "Propellor Butt"; called Amy "Piko Piko Valkyrie" and "Shouty Hammer McPain"; called Jet the Hawk "Jettinson Q. Hawkington"; called Blaze "Little Miss Flaming Lilac"; and called Eggman "Baldy McNosehair". He also named one of his bombs "Jamie-Kendall Duckingworth III".
  • Only in It for the Money: Any time their involved its usually to get something to sell off or in general a powerful emerald. They abandoned Cream when she said she couldn't pay them for their help against Metal Sonic.
  • Only Sane Man: Bark especially in Sonic Universe 64 were he, for the first time ever, expresses having a problem with obtaining an Emerald and working for Eggman. He's right because a) Eggman is known for betraying people he does not need and b) the world is in chaos and Eggman is the last person you want to go to for help.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Bean is the red oni to Bark's blue oni.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Cream attempts to get Bean and Bark to help out when Sally and Amy come under attack by Metal Sonic. Instead, they bolt when Cream reveals she can't pay them.
  • Super Strength: Applies to Bark. The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia confirms he is the third strongest Mobian alive with Mighty the Armadillo in second place, and Big the Cat in first.
  • Token Good Teammate: Bark. Sort of. While Bean falls in the dead center of neutral and Nack is the most malicious of them, Bark is starting to show some moral problems with working for and/or helping Eggman, a known villain and the most evil person on the planet.
  • The Voiceless: Bark. He does get a few speech bubbles here and there, but they're just things like "?!" or a sigh at most.

Battle Bird Armada

     Battle Bird Armada 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_bba_kukkuxv_speedy_resize.png
Speedy (left); Battle Kukku XV (right)

Click here to see pre-SGW 

Hailing from the spin-off game Tails Adventure, the Battle Bird Armada is a militaristic group of birds ruled by a long line of Battle Lords. They see the sky as belonging to them and all other races as (literally) beneath them. The current leader is Battle Kukku XV, a classy fellow who is not someone you want to see angered, and his son Battle Kukku XVI a.k.a. Speedy. The head of their science division is Doctor Fukurokov, who researches and creates the various weapons and technologies the Armada employs. From their enormous flying fortress, the Armada searches for the key to their past and future: the mysterious Babylon Gardens.

As of October 2015, it's been revealed that the Battle Kukkus work for Eggman in the rebooted world.

  • Affably Evil: Battle Kukku XV is quite well-spoken, polite, and accommodating towards friends and allies. Just make sure you don't get on his bad side.
  • Airborne Aircraft Carrier: The Battle Fortress, an enormous flying structure that houses the entire Armada and their vehicles.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Turns out that Battle Kukku XV is a master of close-quarters combat and has yet to be defeated hand to hand.
  • Badass Boast: In the Eggman's Dozen arc, after Battle Kukku XV single-handedly annihilates a bunch of Dark Gaia monsters and the generator they were sent to disable with explosives:
    Abyss: What are you?
    Kukku: Perfection.
  • Combat Stilettos: Oddly enough, Battle Kukku XV wears high-heeled shoes. The reboot gave him a slight redesign that downplays them, though.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Speedy at times. Battle Kukku XV as well in the reboot.
  • Fantastic Racism: They believe the air belongs solely to the birds (specifically them) and people who can fly by other means like Tails are an abomination.
  • Karma Houdini: Save for their first apperence, they've been getting away with a lot of their actions in the comic such a blowing up New Mobotropolis and almost killing Tails in the old continuity and kidnapping Chip and downing the Sky Patrol in the new one.
  • Large and in Charge: Battle Kukku XV towers over the other members of the Armada and is nearly Eggman's height. In the reboot he's the tallest member of Eggman's forces, including Eggman.
  • Mad Bomber: Kukku has the same bomb-manifesting powers as Bean.
  • Mecha-Mook: In their second appearance, two prototype Pursuit Drones assist Speedy in rounding up the Babylon Rogues. They're very fast and agile and come equipped with powerful Eye Beams, but are somewhat fragile. Both are destroyed, to Fukurokov's consternation and Kukku's irritation. In the reboot they have large armored mechas with extendable arms and drills on their bodies.
  • Megaton Punch: How Battle Kukku XV announces his arrival to the Babylon Rogues.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Battle Kukku XV trounces the Babylon Rouges effortlessly and strong arms them back into working for the Armada. He likewise is able to take down Ixis Naugus with little effort (though admittedly, Worf Had the Flu was in effect for the latter).
  • Only Sane Man: Speedy in some cases, he knows full well a threat when he sees one but his father insists on taking other courses of actions much to his annoyance.
  • Overlord Jr.: Speedy.
  • Owl Be Damned: Dr. Fukurokov.
  • Power Armor: Speedy has an exoskeleton battle suit in the reboot, based on his second battle in Tails Adventure. Does quite well against Sally.
  • Power Crutch: Speedy's flight harness allows him to rival Extreme Gears in speed and agility. Unfortunately, it looks like the bottom half of an eggshell/diaper. In the reboot Speedy wears a full-body jumpsuit and also seems to be older than he was previously.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Wake up, son: it's time for school."
  • Retcon: The Battle Kukkus work for Eggman in the reboot. This may be a Development Gag referencing how they were supposed to watch over the Land of a Million Lights in the old continuity.
  • Revenge: While the invasion of New Mobotropolis was mostly for uncovering the Babylon Gardens. Kukku made a special note to have Tails captured for damaging their ship in a previous Sonic Universe issue...so he could just punt him off the side of their ship. Granted the plan was probably to have him wiped out along with the city but still.... Battle Kukku XV likewise declares as such to the Babylon Rouges for the destruction of Babylon Gardens.
  • Slasher Smile: Battle Kukku XV is prone to these, but perhaps his best one comes from when the Eggman's Dozen storyline in Sonic Universe, complete with Scary Shiny Glasses.
  • Suspiciously Small Army: In the new time line, one Egg Boss, Abyss, questions how the army can possibly monitor the sky using only a single ship, when she herself does passingly using thirteen to control half the oceans.
  • Super Strength: Battle Kukku XV is incredibly physically strong (one of the top five strongest Mobians), able to easily floor Storm the Albatross with little effort and beat the snot out of Ixis Naugus, as well as smash the top of a mountain with a leaping punch. In the reboot he gets jumped by one of the large lizard-like Dark Gaia monsters, then merely plucks it off of his back and casually crushes it into smoke with one hand.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Pre-reboot the mooks of the Armada couldn't hit the broad side of the Death Egg with a homing missile and were laughable opponents. Post-reboot they give the Freedom Fighters a very good fight and even manage to disable the Sky Patrol's engines.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Speedy to Kukku pre-reboot. Their relationship seems to be more amicable in the reboot.
  • Worthy Opponent: Speedy to Tails after he manages to beat Fukurokov's mech while he was piloting it. In the reboot Battle Kukku feels this way towards the Sky Patrol, an enemy vessel worthy of an honorable battle.

     Babylon Rogues 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6f1811d68a1e9383c9c86ced878b2bb1.png
Wave (left); Jet (center); Storm (right)

A group of rogue former agents of the Battle Bird Armada. They seek treasure and riches of all kinds, and also have their eye on the Babylon Gardens.

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the games, they weren't exactly the nicest group around but they were hardly cutthroats and just arrogant rivals at best. Here, they're more then willing screw over anyone if it means achieving their goals including blowing up New Mobotropolis.
  • Anti-Villain: They're not good guys but not evil either. They're just on their own side and any actions they take is for their own benefit. Everyone else be damned.
  • Berserk Button: For Wave, it's damaging her equipment.
  • Broken Pedestal: To Speedy who once idolized them. Partly for their betrayal to the Armada and partly because Jet refused to allow him to come along when they started their defection.
  • Defector from Decadence: Were with the Armada before striking out on their own.
  • Dumb Muscle: Storm
  • Jerkass: All of them, they may not be evil but they're unpleasant to everybody they meet.
  • Lack of Empathy: As long as they get what they want, they don't care who has to get hurt. Even if it means wiping out New Mobotropolis. Sonic rightly calls them out for this.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: During the Team Tango arc, after getting caught in the blast by Bean's bomb. Wave has enough and drags Jet and Storm off, citing the battle was tearing up their equipment.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Jet naturally.
  • Wrench Wench: Wave

The Zeti

     The Deadly Six 

Six of the evilest of the Zeti kind from the Sonic Lost World. They make their debut in the comic proper in the Worlds Unite crossover as one of the major antagonists.


  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Not that they weren't psychos in the first place, but Sigma assumes direct control of them early on in the crossover.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: First they turn on Eggman for Sigma, and then as soon as they've got what they wanted from him, they try to turn on him as well, which doesn't work out so well.
  • Defiant to the End: Whenever they get beaten and offered surrender, the Zeti make a creed that surrender is never an option to them.
  • Early-Bird Cameo:
    • Zavok shows up at the end of Sonic Universe #75.
    • Their role in the Worlds Unite crossover was pretty much this. As at the end of the crossover, the crossover's events are erased due to Xander Payne (from the Mega Man comic) killing the Sigma virus in the past before he begins his plans thus keeping the crossover from happening. Eggman has vague memories of it however, including becoming their slave, and quickly decides to hold off on going to the Lost Hex for the time being.
  • Technopath: One of their major abilities. In the crossover, they attempt to use it on Sigma, but are stymied by his viral nature and also the trap he planted in their armor. Mega Man, X and the Robot Masters play it straight however. Even robotic artificial limbs are within their abilities making Bunnie useless against them as well.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Zazz, during the battle outside Sigma's fortress in the Worlds Unite crossover he suggest taking control of the Sky Patrol and crashing it to kill the heroes. Zavok bluntly points out that since the Zeti are on the ship too and they need to focus to keep control over the Robot Masters, that would kill them as well.

Others

     Wendy's Witchcarters 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_baddies_trolls_witch_carters_extremegeargroup_resize.png

The three bosses from Tails Skypatrol, including Falke-Wulf, Bearenger, and Carrotia. They serve under Wendy Naugus.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Bearenger is notable in that, in a world of blue hedgehogs and red echidnas, he is a decidedly normal-looking brown.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Focke-Wulf was renamed Falke-Wulf.
  • The Berserker: Bearenger, who is constantly angry when fighting, or is angry because he is not fighting.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: All three of them are under Wendy's mind control.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Carrotia has no idea what's going on half the time, preferring to be lost in her own little world.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Subverted. They're freed from Wendy's control, and prepare to get revenge on her, but they never get a chance before she retakes control.
  • Expy: Fairly close in personality to some of The Destructix. Bearenger is pretty much Sergent Simian without the morality code and Focke-Wulf is Flying Frog if slightly saner, although Flying Frog's strange talking schtick was given to Carrotia. Carrotia's mental state also resembles Rosy the Rascal's from Moebius.
  • Foil: Falke-Wulf and Bearenger were redesigned and intended by Ian Flynn to serve as counterparts to Bean and Bark. Falke-Wulf is crazy, but unlike Bean his craziness isn't played for laughs.
  • Heart Beatdown: Carrotia can blow kisses that launch heart-shaped projectiles.
  • Super Empowering: In the past, they were incompetent enough that Tails was able to beat this as a child. Now they are a threat after absorbing Dark Gaia Energy.
  • Theme Naming: Two-thirds example. Bearenger is a pun on "derringer", while Falke-Wulf is named after Fockewufle, A World War II aircraft manufacturer. Carrot could possibly be a reference to the fact that carrots were commonly thought to improve vision, and thus was highly incorporated into the diet of pilots.
  • Verbal Tic: Falke-Wulf tends to descend into a hooting laughter after words that end in "oo". He even laughs by habit when he sleeps.
  • Woman Child: Carrotia, a fully-grown rabbit who's having the time of her life on an (immobile) ferris wheel and talks like a child.
    "Rocky-rocky! Backsies-forthsies!"
  • Weak-Willed: They have spent decades under mind control because they are incredibly easily influenced.
  • You Don't Look Like You: All three of them received extensive redesigns.

The Black Arms

A race of evil hive-minded aliens that consume worlds they pass. Following the Super Genesis Wave, the events of Shadow the Hedgehog have been added to the new timeline.

     Black Doom 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8daeb1fa7662d428c14d9c98056a4062.jpg

The original Hive-Mind of the Black Arms race. Due to a mandate by SEGA, he was only ever allowed to make shadowy appearances and has now been dead since the Super Genesis Wave added Shadow the Hedgehog's game events to the timeline.

     Black Death 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b3996ca8e57341d1818e5a014ead3a68.png

The Black Arms` new Hive-Mind who took over after Shadow killed Black Doom. He plays pretty much the same role as his predecessor did in Shadow the Hedgehog.

     Eclipse the Darkling 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aa3dd4835b991145453476a9e77a11c8.png

Eclipse is a supersolider in the Black Arms alien species and was created by the Black Arms to essentially be their answer to Shadow the Hedgehog.

  • Black Eyes of Crazy
  • Cain and Abel: Inverted. He was born after Shadow was already a few decades old, so he's basically an evil Cain to Shadow's Abel.
  • The Dragon: To Black Death in his debut arc, but after the death of the former he becomes a...
  • Dragon Ascendant: ...and swears revenge on Shadow and his loved ones.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Eclipse genuinely cares about his fellow Black Arm "brothers", especially Shadow and his Dark Arms breed.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • As stated above, he's meant to be the Black Arms' answer to Shadow. Ian Flynn even outright confirmed that he is meant to be what Shadow would have been if he was a pure Black Arm.
    • His Dark Arms are twisted black versions of Wisps, as the Black Arms traveled to the Wisp homeworld to collect the genetic material used to create them (thankfully, they left it in one piece because they were in a hurry).
  • Hive Mind: While the Black Arms operate under this, Eclipse is an exception, as he has free will and clarity of thought to make his own decisions. He can, however, communicate with Black Death and the other Black Arms through the hive mind and command his lesser brethren as Black Death can.
  • Last of His Kind: He's the only real Black Arm left.
  • Power Nullifier: His mere presence not only disables Shadow's chaos powers, but weakens him significantly as well.
  • Revenge: Declares such toward Shadow for killing off the remaining Black Arms.
  • Super Mode: Eclipse can tap into an inner power to give himself a substantial increase in size and power as well as armor plates. However, for the moment he burns through this power pretty fast, limiting its effectiveness.
  • Super Soldier: He was explicitly engineered to be able to take down Shadow.
  • We Can Rule Together: Wants this badly with Shadow, seeing him as a fellow Black Arms and super soldier and "brother".

     Dark Arms 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1dark_arms.png

A set of Wisps that were collected by the Black Arms as they passed their world. These Wisps have been corrupted into "Dark Arms" forms, able to meld and add power to Eclipse, much like the Wisps do with Sonic in Sonic Colors and Sonic Lost World.

Breeze Media

     Breezie the Hedgehog 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sth270_breeziecasino_resize.png

The cunning CEO of Breeze Media, the world's largest entertainment network. She once worked as a double agent for Dr. Eggman, posing as a helpless damsel to gain Sonic's trust.

  • Adaptational Villainy: She turned good in her first appearance in the cartoon, but stayed evil in the comics and even broke off from Eggman to work on her own as a villain.
  • Bread and Circuses: She quotes the Latin phrase at Eggman while explaining how he couldn't possibly afford to buy the Chaos Emerald off of her, as with the world literally falling to pieces around them, people will pay through the nose for a good distraction like her tournament.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: She's implied to have a hand in plenty of shady dealings.
  • Dating Catwoman: Averted. When Sonic and Sally learn that Breezie was hosting the fighting tournament for a Chaos Emerald, Sonic reacts in disgust. This is vastly different from his AoStH counterpart, who was head over heels in love with her.
  • Expy: She's pulling double duty on this one, filling the same role as two of the previous comic originals. As far as overall role in the story, she takes over for Mammoth Mogul, being the owner of Casino Park, using the old Adventures Of badniks as her personal grunts, and being set up as beyond reproach a la Lex Luthor. However, she's also the "new" Evil Green Hedgehog, filling in Scourge's spot, at least to a degree. Furthermore, she also bears some similarity to Fiona Fox, as someone whose harsh childhood resulted in her becoming selfish and betraying Sonic.
  • Femme Fatale: Took this role in her first cartoon appearance, and seems to hold up to it in the comic.
  • Friendly Enemy: Sonic is surprisingly friendly towards her, despite being betrayed by her in the past. That said, it's pretty obvious that he doesn't trust her any farther than he can throw her.
  • Greed: Pretty much her sole motivation to which she flat out admitted to Sonic when he called her out on putting Tails in harms way when they first met.
    • Gets more pronounced at the end of the "Champions" arc. Due to the ratings of the tournament and the suggestions of her staff, she decides to set her sights to bigger goals namely, what else, controlling the world.
  • Honey Trap: In her first (flashback) appearance, she tricked Sonic into letting her accompany him before backstabbing him.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Seeing as she's an expy of the removed Mammoth Mogul.
  • Rags to Riches: From some nobody working for Eggman to the most powerful media mogul on the planet.
  • Rescue Romance: She exploited this trope to win Sonic's trust as he "saved" her from Scratch and Grounder.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: In the cartoon. Here's she's a completely organic hedgehog, having worked with Eggman to escape what's hinted to be an impoverished lifestyle.
  • Robosexual: It's implied that she fell in love with Neo Metal Sonic; at the very least, she was visibly admiring him after he revealed himself to her, noting that they were Not So Different.
  • The Sociopath: Sports shades of this. In past, when Sonic points out how Tails' life and the whole world are at stake, she brushes him off, stating that her own life and well-being are more important. When the whole world is at the brink of falling apart, she is more concerned with making profit out of the whole situation. And when Honey calls her out, she smugly dismisses her. Needless to say, Honey attempts to maintain a calm appearance but once she leaves the office, she is visibly horrified at how uncaring and manipulative Breezie is. The fact she realized this ony after she signed Deal with the Devil didn't help at all.
  • Spotting the Thread: She immediately realized that Neo Metal Sonic was an imposter because he was more generous in his negotiations than the real Dr. Eggman would ever be.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Sorta in her introduction arc, yeah she knew she would lose the emerald sooner of later, but the ratings boost more then made up for it. She's even richer and popular then ever with no one, save those that really know her, the wiser of her true nature. All thanks to Sonic and Eggman whom she played like fiddles. Granted Sonic knew this going into the tournament but had bigger concerns and had to play along. Eggman though not so much and in the end he wound up with his with hired mercenaries and Metal Sonic outwitted and him losing the emerald.
  • Xanatos Gambit: The entire Tournament Arc was this - even though she knew someone, good or evil, would get the Chaos Emerald, she came out richer and more popular than before.
  • You Don't Look Like You: The original Breezie looked, well... not a whole lot like a hedgehog and probably more like Jessica Rabbit as a hedgehog-ish thing. Her comic design keeps the basic idea of her appearance, but puts it very much in line with the normal hedgehog look.

     Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_ssssss_resize.png

Three Badniks who were part of the original Robotnik's Badnik forces. They were made into their own team that was dedicated to capturing or destroying Sonic, but they were such bumblers that they always failed. Though mainstays in their source, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Scratch and Grounder only appeared in two early comics before vanishing, with Coconuts getting only two appearances as well (though his second was a while after S&G's). After a long absence they all returned as workers in Mammoth Mogul's casino and headquarters. The three returned in issue #268, with the trio under the employ of the fourth AoStH character, Breezie the Hedgehog.

  • Alliterative Name: The Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad.
  • Back from the Dead: Coconuts, who was part of a Badnik group on a secret repair island trying to resurrect Pseudo-Sonic, which was defeated and crushed into a cube by the Forty Fathoms Freedom Fighters. We see in a flashback how he escaped the cube and made his way to shore.
  • Butt-Monkey: All three, but Coconuts especially. Even in Mogul's employ, he's upset that despite all of his ambitions and plans he's now a "butler monkey".
  • Composite Character: In the reboot universe, Scratch and Grounder bear more of a resemblance to the Badniks they were based on. For example, Scratch's beak is serrated like Cluck's, and Grounder's eyes are narrow slits that rotate to show expression like his in-game sprite. Coconuts remains the same.
  • The Ditz: Grounder.
  • Evil Laugh: Scratch's signature "Bah-HA ha-haaaaah!".
  • Overly Long Name: The Super Special So...you know what? You get the idea. They're sometimes referred to as the "S6 Squad" for short.
  • Put on a Bus: Vanished from the comics when it began to get darker and more plot-oriented.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Grounder's hands can retract and change into a variety of weapons and tools.
  • Terrible Trio: They're three goon-bots who always hang out together and couldn't be any less effective or menacing if they tried.
  • This Is a Drill: Grounder's nose and his arms' default tips.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Scratch and Coconuts.
  • What, Exactly, Is His Job?: Even the comic's captions are unsure what exactly Grounder does at Breezie's casino.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_baddies_trolls_walternaugus_resize.png

A wizard and recurring villain. He had once saved Maximillian when he was banished into the Zone of Silence, while making him swear fealty to him, making the wizard a legal ruler. He had been trying to take over Mobotropolis twice and failed thanks to Sonic (who he frequently refers to as "Quickster"). It wasn't until after the failed Iron Dominion invasion in New Mobotropolis that, through his magical manipulation, he was finally able to become king — with a little help from Geoffery St. John.

Thanks to his status as a SatAM character rather than a comic-original, he was one of the few (and so far only) major non-video game villains to make it past the reboot. In the new continuity, he's a troll, and Wendy Naugus's brother. His backstory in the new universe reveals that he's now part of a race of trolls that thrived on crystal power. But an unknown event wiped out most of his race and split his civilization into smaller islands. Attempts to revive his civilization were met with many setbacks either from Eggman or Sonic. When Eggman tested his Genesis Wave, he was caught between rifts and lost his powers. He has since then been trying to find a way to re-gain them.

(Post-Genesis Wave)

  • Adaptational Name Change: Given the name Walter in the post Genesis Wave Timeline.
  • Adaptation Species Change: The post Genesis Wave Timeline introduces a new species of Mobian called the Trolls and Naugus is retroactively made a member. Originally Naugus was a completely original organism formed by a fusion of a rhino, bat, and lobster mobian.
  • Alliterative Family: Him and his sister, Wendy Naugus.
  • All Trolls Are Different: In the new continuity, instead of an amalgamation of three different Mobians, Naugus is a Troll, a member of an ancient race with an affinity for crystals.
  • Asshole Victim: In Issue #252, it's revealed that he lost his magical powers due to the Genesis Wave, and getting his memories of the old reality drives him into a panic that ends up in him fleeing the kingdom. Considering everything he'd done prior to this, it's hard to feel sorry for the creep.
  • Big Bad: Has been this to both Sonic, Tail, and Dr. Eggman in the past.
  • Butt-Monkey: The guy has been through a lot in the new verse: Getting thrown into the special zone by Eggman and Snively, being beaten by Sonic and Tails when his treachery to King Acorn was revealed, forced to retreat with Wendy after Tails manages to beat her, losing his powers thanks to the Genesis Wave, out and out being rejected by Eggman when he tried to work with him, his plan for a Super Ring falling apart (which we saw at the opening of the new universe) and of course the whole fiasco with Eggmanland. Honestly, despite all the crap he pulled in the new universe, it's hard to not feel slightly sorry for him.
  • Cosmic Retcon: His origin in the comics as a combination of three separate beings was another writer's creation, so it had to be changed post-reboot (Ixis and the crystal-affinity magic it grants are still around in the reboot however). See All Trolls Are Different above.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: He reacts badly when Nicole and Wendy call him "Wally".
  • Evil Sorcerer: Sort of. He fits every qualifier bar one; he's not actually capable of doing magic, which leads to his various ploys to try and regain his powers.
  • In Medias Res: The new universe opens with him in the middle of a plot of forcing NICOLE to make a Super Ring for him before the shock of seeing the old universe scared him into retreating. Sonic Universe #89 revealed the details leading up to that point: After recovering from the Genesis Wave, Walter found out he didn't have his powers anymore. Desperate, he tried to forge a partnership with Eggman, who laughed in his face before rejecting him, though had managed to swipe some of his technology before he was thrown out of the base he visited. With Wendy's help, he had disguised himself as King Acorn in the hopes of using his authority to find a way to restore his power. But Sally got suspicious of how her "father" was acting and had NICOLE look into the matter, exposing him. He managed to force her to do his bidding and was nearly close to a breakthrough when Eggman sent the Tails Doll monster to attack the kingdom in retaliation for stealing his technology, which is where Sonic "arrived" in the midst of after the Worlds Collide crossover.
  • Large Ham: Hasn't changed from before the Genesis Wave.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After trashing Nicole's reputation, manipulating his way to the crown, setting up Elias for an assassination attempt, attempting to brainwash all of New Mobotropolis, and not getting any sort of proper comeuppance for it, the second Genesis Wave robs him of his magic. And then he gets back his memories of reality before that, and ends up going insane from the experience. It's rather cathartic to watch.
  • Humiliation Conga:
    • Apparently, thanks to the reality-warping effects of the second Genesis Wave, the first one robbed him of his magic, leaving him powerless and reliant on Nicole—the very A.I. that he'd framed—to work on a cure. Then he gets his memories of the old reality, does not take it well, and flees the kingdom in a frothing panic.
    • Gets another at the end of the Eggman's Dozen arc when Eggman's forces manage to beat both Wendy and him with Eggman personally knocking him out of the fight, forcing him to use the Crystallized Metal Sonic as a distraction and escape.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Came very close to this when he manages reform the Master Emerald and use it's power to trap Knuckles, Amy, and Team Dark in crystal. If Knuckles hadn't broken free after remembering Amy's encouraging words from earlier, he would've won.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Quite literally. He takes Knuckles's remaining emerald shards and remakes the Master Emerald. Amy even lampshades he saved them a step in their plan.
  • Mythology Gag: He refers to Dark Gaia as "Ixis," his original first name.
  • Shapeshifter Guilt Trip: Attempts this when Amy's on the verge of pounding him (with a hammer he accidentally "enhanced" with his crystals) by changing into Sonic. She doesn't fall for it but decides he isn't worth her time to hit. Letting Shadow and Knuckles (aka two of Sonic's biggest rivals) have the honor.
  • Squishy Wizard: While he is a peerless sorcerer, he is not a physical fighter in the slightest. He folds immediately when Eggman unveils an energy suit that completely neutralizes his magic, ending with Eggman delivering a Curb-Stomp Battle to Naugus. With his bare hands!
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Post-Genesis Wave, his name is Walter Naugus.
  • Treacherous Advisor: In the new timeline, he served as this to King Acorn.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: An ability of his, not exclusive to the comic either as he did do it in the SatAM cartoon. He demonstrates this in the new universe by changing into an echidna named "Nixus".

(Pre-Genesis Wave)

  • Aborted Arc: Had one going with his becoming king of New Mobotropolis and his growing insanity thanks to his powers. But due to the second Genesis Wave all of that was retconned away and he just up and flees the kingdom due to the above-mentioned shock.
  • Adaptational Name Change: In the cartoon Ixis Naugus was his name while in the comic Ixis is only a title and is bestowed upon members of the Order of Ixis with his own name simply being Naugus.
  • Big Bad: Has had his turn at being this several times over the course of the series.
  • Body Horror: The mutations he's been suffering in most recent issues.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He never works for anyone unless he plans to take over their operation at some point down the road. In fact, it's even the reason he exists to begin with: the three original Ixis wizards specialized in land, air, and sea respectively, and collaborated to add fire to their repertoires, but all three tried to screw one another over to take all the power for themselves.
  • The Dragon: To Mammoth Mogul, for a while. He got one of his own in Geoffrey.
  • Elemental Powers: He has power over the four classic elements, among others.
  • Evil Mentor: To Geoffrey.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Incredibly powerful, incredibly malevolent.
  • Grand Theft Me: Hijacks Geoffrey's body to escape his mutations.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: MAYBE. He may or may not have started the great war. If he did, then that would make him indirectly responsible for the original Dr Robotnik's rise to power and therefore makes him indirectly responsible for the formation of the Freedom Fighters.
  • Large Ham: He is, as Geoffrey puts it, as subtle as a brick.
  • Hate Plague: He has the ability to amplify people's emotions - it's implied this was used to start the Great War between Mobians and Overlanders.
    • Also almost caused a civil war between Mobians and Robians.
      • And more recently, he's been using this same magic to turn the people of New Mobotropolis against NICOLE.
  • Hearing Voices: Since Eggman's mucking with reality in the Genesis arc, he's been haunted by the spirits of the wizards who formed him.
  • Humiliation Conga: Issue #241 was not kind to Naugus. Already suffering from Body Horror due to his original personalities reemerging, he's put through a consecutive string of The Reason You Suck Speeches followed the Hate Plague he set up against NICOLE finally waning.
    • In Issue #252, it gets worse for him.
  • Informed Attribute: He once stated that he was powerful enough to affect the planet's rotation. Even when using a Chaos Emerald, he has never shown anything resembling that kind of power, at best taking out a giant robot.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Especially after he regains his mind.
  • Mixand Match Critters: Ixus was a fusion between three other Ixis wizards - a rhino, a bat, and a lobster.
  • More Than Mind Control: How his Hate Plague power works. As he himself explains when he does so during Mina's concert, there was already fear and paranoia amongst the citizens centered around NICOLE; he just amplified it.
  • Sanity Slippage: Has been suffering it ever since Genesis. Even the recap at the beginning of one recent issue describes him as now being "dangerously insane".
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Naugus spent years trapped in the Zone of Silence. He escaped and was resealed several times before escaping permanently.
  • Squishy Wizard: Didn't do that well fighting the Battle Kukku.
  • Two Beings, One Body: Naugus was created when three other Ixis wizards - a rhino, a bat, and a lobster - were permanently fused together.
  • Weak, but Skilled: How he's an actual threat to Silver, despite the latter having defeated an Enerjak incarnation in a previous story arc.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Used the aforementioned Hate Plague against Nicole to boost himself into having this in New Mobotropolis when he promised to dispose of her. He sealed the deal by defeating a giant Metal Sonic and saving New Mobotropolis.

     Wendy Naugus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/modern_baddies_trolls_wendynaugus_witchcart_resize.png

A fellow troll introduced in the new universe as Walter's sister. Though heavily revamped for the comic, she originates from the spin-off game Tails Skypatrol where she was depicted as a (presumably) human witch known only as "Witchcart".

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Of Dr. Eggman.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After Eggman beats Wally and her and is set to have her executed. She pleas for her life and is willing to work with Eggman to keep it. Eggman, with some prodding from Axel, accepts.
  • Ascended Extra: While Witchcart had only a single appearance in the games, she's a recurring antagonist here, and has been given the name Wendy Naugus, made an anthropomorphic troll wizard and the twin sister of Walter Naugus. She commands a group of minions known as the Witchcarters, an ode to her original game name.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Looks like a slimmer, female version of Walter, though somewhat more human in appearance.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up at the end of the #276 helping Walter sabotage Eggmanland.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Genuinely does see Wally as family and states she helping to get his powers back for exactly this reason.
  • Interspecies Romance: Wendy, a troll, is visibly attracted to Robotnik, a human, making frequent flirtatious comments about and to him. It's a one-sided affair, as Robotnik finds it quite creepy.
  • Low Culture, High Tech: Unlike Walter, who abhors technology, Wendy is quite the technology enthusiast.
  • Mythology Gag: In fanon, her game incarnation is known as Wendy Witchcart.
  • Wicked Witch: Really going for the motif including a witch's hat, hooked nose, and cape. She even cackles like a stereotypical witch.

Pirates of the Setting Dawn

A group of pirates that were once under the command of Abyss. Once she left to join Eggman and took most of her armada with her. This band was the only one who didn't follow and continue to sail the seas looking for treasure.

     In General 
  • Even Evil Has Standards: They may not be the most moral bunch, but they knew Eggman was way worse and refused to follow Abyss into his servitude.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Literally the last new characters introduced in the series as the main comic and Sonic Universe were cancelled after their arc was concluded.
  • Pirate: All of then naturally.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: A darker variant of this.

     Captain Shellbreaker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/archie_sonic_captain_shellbreaker.jpg

Captain of the Setting Dawn Pirates. An otter.

  • Berserk Button: Traitors. Abyss leaving really left a mark on him and he likewise wasn't fond of Razor likewise abandoning the crew either.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Wears one on his right eye.
  • The Leader: Of his band of pirate.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Subtly hinted that he didn't take Abyss joining Eggman well and wishes to find a way to get back at her. When Deena seems to find a temple that hints at a weapon. He jumps at the chance to claim it despite her likewise reading that there were warnings attached to it.
  • Villain Respect: To the Chaotix when they managed to steal his ship from the crew, claiming while he hated they betrayed him, thought that they would make good pirates.

     Mr. Bristles 
Second in command of the crew. A yeti crab.

  • Like a Son to Me: Considers Razor to be one, claiming he raised him like his own son. Though expresses some disappointment for his leaving the crew.
  • The Big Guy: The largest member of the crew and shown to have some strength on him when he stops a temple wall from closing on the crew.
  • The Mentor: And likewise the oldest and most experienced member.
  • Morality Pet: Essentially one for most of the crew, especially Blade.
  • Token Good Teammate: Next to Dive, he's one of the few decent members of the crew.

     Blade 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/archie_sonic_blade.jpg
One of the female crewmen of the ship. A shark and Razor's older sister.

  • Big Sister Bully: When Razor meets up with her again years after he left, she shows that she isn't the best of siblings, constantly getting into argument over any disagreements Razor has with her. While a first argument is serious (the matter with a medicine ship they raided which Razor disagreed with). A second one while they're exploring a jungle shows how petty she truly is when Razor comments on the nature of the ruins they're exploring while she cites treasure hunting as boring and admits to actively liking hurting people, much to Razor's disgust.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Razor's Abel. While Razor ultimately grew a conscience and sought to atone for the trouble he brought. Blade continued operating under a belief that the world is cruel, so she there's no reason she shouldn't have to hurt people to get what she wants.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Razor and she were orphans that had to survive on their own. Being the eldest sister, she did all she could to look out for him till Abyss took the two in. However being with a band that encourages stealing and hurting people didn't help her psyche and, like Shellbreaker, she didn't take it well when Abyss left and certainly didn't when Razor jumped ship after an argument on raiding a medicine ship and selling them back to the people it was intended for.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: There are moments where she shows she does geninulesly love Razor since he's the only family she has left. But her unwillingness to compromise or listen to reason beyond her own selfishness strains their relationship.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Like her brother, she has a very short fuse.
  • It's All About Me: She constantly feels like the world owes her something for her tough life and makes excuses to justifiy why she's in the right, even if it means hurting innocent people.

     Opal 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/archie_sonic_opal.jpg

The second female crewman. A jellyfish.

  • Combat Tentacles: Has two stingers hidden within her tentacle hair which she uses to incapacitate foes.
  • Lazy Bum: Described as such on her character model.
  • Not So Different: With Charmy of all people. She can be rather childish in certain situations.
  • The Bully: Shown to be a bit of one by forcing Dive to put in her flavor of cereal when he's making breakfast.
  • The Gadfly: Likes to mess with people just for kicks.

     Dive 
The youngest member of the crew. A lemming.

  • Animal Stereotypes: He's obsessed with the sea, spending long periods of time staring obliviously into the water. This is an obvious reference to the old story of lemmings leading mindless expeditions that ultimately end with them drowning themselves in the sea
  • Naïve Newcomer: States he joined because he has a love of the sea. From the sound of it, he wasn't with the crew long and not too privy to their more questionable methods.
  • Token Good Teammate: Along with Mr. Bristles, he's the least antagonistic of the crew.

Old Universe Characters (Pre-Genesis Wave)

Characters from the original universe before issue #252. These characters are permanently erased from the new timeline thanks to the Super Genesis Wave.

The Dark Legion

A group of technology obsessed echidna that split off from society into their own cult. They were banished into an alternate dimension for centuries.

     In General 

  • Enemy Civil War: The Dark Legion has had a lot of problems with factionalism. Kragok managed to avoid one such war when he took over and stripped Lien-Da of her political title; and the changing of the guard from Kragok to Dimitri went off without a hitch. Problems arose when Dimitri wanted to bury the hatchet with the other Echidnas and the Dark Legion fractured into numerous groups that fillout all sorts of alignments. Many settled into Echidnopolis, and when it was taken over they sided with Lien-Da. Dr. Finitevus backed Remington as a new Grandmaster and he had his own splinter group (the Frost Legion) following him and challenging Lien-Da (leading the Flame Legion) for authority.
  • Faceless Goons: Their hoods obscure their faces save for their eyes; making them easy to dispose of mooks.
  • Mundane Utility: Ian Flynn stated that in addition to serving as bio-enhancements and weaponry, Legionares get mechanical implants as a form of self expression and how these Echidnas show their devotion to technology.
  • Put on a Bus: The Legion were Ken's creation and they were scrubbed from the comic following the reboot.
  • Renegade Splinter Faction: They're a renegade faction of the Echidna society dating back to the days of Edmund and Dimitri. Edmund's genealogy spawned the Brotherhood while Dimitri's spawned the legion.
  • Villain Decay: Justified as the Dark Egg Legion. While the Legion started out fairly powerful, numerous set backs ensued to the point where most of their members either died or defected after the mass-depowering. By the time the remnant signs on with Eggman they're a fraction of the size with many of their more powerful members dead (Xenin, Kragok), turned turncoat (Julie Su, Dr. Finitevus) or MIA (Moritori Rex) and the powers of Enerjak are long gone. The DEL are just easily defeated mooks prone to comedy rather than the fearsome Dark Legion they started out as.

     Dimitri 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-Dimitri_Issue_-184_3631.jpg

Distant ancestor of Knuckles, Lien-Da, and Julie-Su. Spent several centuries as the Chaos-empowered demigod Enerjak.

  • A God Am I: When he became Enerjak, he declared himself a god.
  • Anti-Villain: He gradually revealed himself as this. Part of it came from him learning from his mistakes after being stripped from his powers, and working towards a peace between Echidnas. Part of it was via retcon showing Dimitri's initial experiment to not be entirely through selfishness as the corrupt council was continually blocking his and Edmund's desire to help people.
  • The Atoner: Has become this following his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Big Bad: of Knuckles' spin-off series.
  • Brain in a Jar: Well, head, his body is long since gone with only cybernetics keeping him alive.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Was stripped of his powers by Mogul.
  • Cyborg: One of few Echidnas still with their original Dark Legion cybernetics.
  • The Dragon: As Grandmaster of the Dark Egg Legion, he served as this to Eggman.
  • Drunk On The Darkside: The Chaos Emeralds gave him one hell of a Power High and he grew erratic and careless. When he was depowered he regains his former clarity, lamenting how he never used his incredible power in the most practical of ways.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: While he's frustrated with his descendant Lien-Da's treachery and short-sightedness, he still loves her and continually tries to pull her from danger even if it was brought by her own hubris.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Not apparent at first, but gradually Dimitri becomes one of the least evil of the major villains. He continually tries to push for more peaceful solutions only for Mogul, Eggman, and even Lien-Da undermining him with the depravity they can get to. Dimitri also expresses regret with working with the likes of Dr. Finitevus.
  • Fake Defector: He reveals to Knuckles that he joined forces with Eggman in order to weaken him from within.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was an Antivillain to begin with, and was continually subject to Eviler Than Thou (first from Mogul and then from his own great-X-granddaughter Lien-Da), so this was probably inevitable.
  • Mad Scientist
  • Physical God: As Enerjak.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Was kept perpetually young by his Chaos powers. When they were stolen, however, he aged rapidly, to the point that the only way to save him was to surgically remove his head, and attach it to a life support system in a floating fish bowl.
  • Sanity Slippage: The chaos energies flowing through his mind warped it and as Enerjak, Dimitri became far more violent, power-hungry, and cruel. His sanity returns when Mogul de-powers him.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He spent several centuries buried under the rubble of his own fortress, and shortly after escaping from there, was launched into space for a while.
  • That Man Is Dead: When he attained the powers to become Enerjak, he left his old identity behind.
    Kragok: "Great Dimitri!!!"
    Enerjak: "Lord Enerjak will do, Kragok! Dimitri is but a distant memory!"
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Seemed to be a running theme with him as Enerjak, if not Enerjak incarnations in general. For example, he had more raw power than Mogul when they first met, but Mogul stole his powers with little effort.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Finitevus during the events leading up to the "Enerjak Reborn" arc - he thought his power would be returned to him, but Finitevus was just using him to figure out how to turn someone else into Enerjak.
  • Villain Cred: When he returns from his first defeat he lands right on top of, and destroys, a statue of him that the Dark Legion created. He takes a moment to admire the craftsmanship of the statue, saying he'd like to meet the person who made it.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Was a pretty okay guy until he became Enerjak, at which point he completely lost it. Fortunately, his sanity was restored when he was DePowered.

     Lien-Da 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lien-Da_3090.png

Power mad older sister of Julie-Su and Grandmaster of the Dark Egg Legion. Despises her little sister (the feeling is very mutual).

  • Ascended Extra: Initially a very minor henchman that gradually got much more of a role in the series.
  • The Baroness: Sexpot kind. While Dmitri was in charge of the Dark Legion (before it became the Dark Egg Legion), her title was "Kommissar", and she can sometimes be seen sporting a whip to go with that form-fitting black military uniform.
  • Cain and Abel: She, along with Kragok despised their younger sister and immediately set upon disposing of her (Lein Da in particular lingered over whether just to kill her instead). Interestingly, Lien Da herself was double crossed by Kragok out of power as Grandmaster, leading her to have played both roles of the trope.
  • Control Freak: Actually has nothing against robbing the sentience of her clan to get them to follow her orders.
  • Cyborg: Though not as apparant as most Legionarres. Ian Flynn states that she didn't want to alter her appearence too much and most of her cyborg additions are internal or covered under clothing.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Didn't Think This Through: A fatal flaw of her. Lien-Da is never one much for planning and more acting when an opportunity sees itself. But never seems to think what to do past a certain point in action or what her opponents are really capable of (Why yes, Lien-Da attack the one person who can control machines when you're half cybernetics). This bites her in the ass very quickly, at one point even nearly killing her.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: In the Mobius: 25 Years Later timeline altered by King Sonic's time-traveling, she's still as evil as ever, but she seems to genuinely love her son Rutan (in the unaltered timeline, she's actually semi-Heel Face Turned.)
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Her future self is horrified when King Shadow goes to use Tikhaos to destroy everything, also, she isn't willing to get the royal twins involved in battle, being 'innocent' according to her.
  • Evil Redhead
  • Freudian Excuse: "Dad liked you more!"
  • Gory Discretion Shot: In the climax of the Iron Dominion Arc, she had tried to enact a coup against Regina and attacked her. But Regina counted by activating the bomb in her cybernetics. We see an explosion shortly after and the legion quickly shouting to gather up her body before fleeing.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She had reformed 25 years later and made peace with Julie-Su. But it was changed when King Sonic went time-hopping and somehow prevented this from happening. Possibly because in the new timeline, Shadow had took over and thus she didn't get over her power hungry tendencies.
  • I Have No Father: She disowned her father Luger, to the point of viewing her grandfather Moritori Rex as her father.
  • It's All About Me: To a sociopathic degree.
  • Laughably Evil: Has few restraints and mobilities, has exterminated or screwed over the large majority of her family and people as a stepping stone in her attempts for power. Nevertheless she has the comical demeanor of a spoiled child and things never quite seem to go her way.
  • Never My Fault: Blames her family (particularly her younger sister) for all her grievances in her life. Also tends to blame those around her when plans go wrong (her Great-Great-Grandfather was far more willing to point out her own incompetence, naturally not long after which he was due for the chop as well).
  • Older Than They Look: Despite her appearance, she's actually 33 years old. In an alternate timeline, she retains the same look when she's 63 years old.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot, and was put on a bus shortly before it.
  • Psychopathic Manchild
  • Self-Made Orphan: Murdered both her father and her stepmother, the former to become Grandmaster of the Legion.
  • Shock and Awe: After Eggman rebuilds her.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Julie-Su.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Tended to suffer a few comical thrashing from the heroes, especially in Flynn's era.
  • Smug Snake: Is not in much control of a situation as she thinks, as evidenced when she tries to make a bid for power during the final battle with the Iron Queen.
  • The Starscream: Disposed of her Great-Great-Grandfather to gain the role of Grandmaster and tried to overthrow the Iron Queen. This didn't work out too well however.
    • Is currently one to Eggman. He in fact saved her from dying because he's amused by having his underlings trying to kill him as part of his "game."
  • Took a Level in Badass: After spending her entire existence as a non-action villain, she recently turned into a fighter that can pose a danger to Sonic thanks to the cybernetics she gained from Eggman.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: As with most Eggman minions, she was implanted with a bomb in her body via her cybernetics. Working under the Iron Queen somewhat diminished the threat since Regina wasn't as trigger happy as Eggman long as they didn't cross her. But Lien-Da attempted to overthrow her near the end of the arc and...well Regina did just that, activated her explosives and nearly killed her. It was only thanks to Eggman that she managed to survive.
  • Womanchild: Can be quite the spoiled brat when things don't go her way. She's not above teasing Snively either.
    Aw, is little Snivy-kins not getting the attention he needs?
  • Witch with a Capital B: Julie-Su certainly considered her such, and with valid reason.

     Kragok 

Lien-da's brother, Julie-Su's half-brother and descendant of Dimitri.

  • Back for the Dead: He and Tobor are lost into a portal locked in combat. Many issues later Dimitri accidently reopens the portal and the pair tumble out, fatally crashing into the Legion's airship.
  • Cyborg: As par the course for Legionnaires.
  • Demoted to Dragon: The de-facto leader of the Legion in his first outing, Kragok willingly gives up control to Dimitri after he returns from space.
  • I Have No Father: He disowned his father Luger, to the point of viewing his grandfather Moritori Rex as his father.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Hated his family so much that he conspired to get his father, Luger, killed, injured Lien-Da enough to keep the full power of Grandmaster to himself, and erased Julie-Su's memory of her family and tossed her at a couple and told her to treat her as if she were an orphan before taking them away from her.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Murdered both his father and his stepmother, the former to become Grandmaster of the Legion.
  • The Starscream: Was this to Lien-Da - he had agreed to share power as the Grandmaster after they did away with their father, only for him to take the entire thing. Though when Dimitri returns, he's nothing but loyal to him.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The guy only shows up for three storylines before disappearing at the end of the third, only to show up once more to die.

     Moritori Rex 

Moritori is a former Grandmaster of the Dark Legion and grandson of the infamous Dimitri. He became a spy when he was mistaken for the Guardian Tobor and brought to the Brotherhood of Guardians's secret base Haven.

  • Combat Pragmatist: Moritori will use any means at his disposal to win in a fight.
  • Cyborg: He possesses cybernetic implants, most notably his eyes, which were originally equipped to allow him to spy on the Prime Zone while still trapped in the Twilight Cage and he is one of few Echidnas with their original Dark Legion cybernetics.
  • Disappointed in You: It's not that apparant in comic, but Ian Flynn stated he wrote Rex with this opinion in regards to his son Luger; Rex was ultimately dissatisfied with how little Luger accomplished.
    " I don't think Rex outright hated his son; I think there was still a small, "human" part of him that felt at least a responsibility to acknowledge him. But I don't think he lingered on the news of his death. While Rex was busy scheming in the Primeverse, Luger achieved very little in terms of returning to Angel Island. I see Rex as being disappointed with Luger's apparent lack of drive or viciousness, which is why he turned his attention to the next generation."
  • The Mole: Posed as the guardian Tobor.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Before Dimitri came back, Moritori Rex was one of the oldest Legionnaires outliving his son Luger and even his grandson Kragok.
  • Put on a Bus: Was cast into the Twilight Cage along with the Brotherhood of Guardians (bar Knuckles and Locke) by Dr. Finitevus; not returning due to legal matters.

     Xenin 

One of the Dark Legion's strongest soldiers. Xenin acts as an enforcer whenever Dimitri or Kragok have something planned.

  • The Brute: In contrast to the other named Dark Legionarres in authority, Xenin is a field agent largely there to provide the muscle for his superiors. He's quite strong to, dispatching both General Stryker and Knuckles.
  • Fantastic Racism: He dislikes Dingoes quite a bit.
  • Killed Off for Real: He was a victim of the Egg Grapes.
  • Mauve Shirt: In contrast to the nameless and faceless Dark Legion mooks, Xenin was given a distinctive design and more of a personality. He was also given a fairly concrete fate in contrast to most of his allies who were left hanging.
  • Mook Lieutenant: He leads a dispatch of Legionarres during operations.

The Destructix and Moebius

A mercenary group made up of criminals. While they hardly get involved in problems of their world they nevertheless cause all manner of trouble for the Freedom Fighters.

     The Destructix as a whole 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/destructix_7139.jpg

  • Hired Guns: They've had a number of bosses over the series and hardly ever work for themselves. The only time they did was to bust out Scourge.
  • Mook Carryover: The Fearsome Foursome debuted as Mammoth Mogul's minions. After his imprisonment they reformed under Snively for a time. After leaving his employ with Sleuth they formed the Destructix and went back to serving Mogul before leaving his service and working under Scourge.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Downplayed. When Angel Island devolves into civil war, the Destrutix are seen as the most heroic faction as Finitevus has them defend the non-combatents from the Dingos and warring Dark Legion as a way to make himself seem trustworthy to Locke. While the Echidnas think highly of them, it never really changes their position in the world as they're still seen as dangerous and untrustworthy mercinaries and news of their good deeds didn't go beyond Angel Island.

     Scourge the Hedgehog 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Scourge_2553.png

Formerly known as the Anti-Sonic, Sonic's Evil Twin from an Alternate Universe where the Freedom Fighters are evil. For quite a long time, he was simply a petty self-obsessed recurring nuisance who would spawn many a Clear My Name plot and occasionally team up with a more legitimately threatening villain... until exposure to the Master Emerald turned him green and evoked a major attitude adjustment, leading him to reinvent himself as "Scourge", a more truly psychotic version of the main character who ascended into a position of formidable antagonist in his own right. He's become a flagship Archie-original character, the first to get his own 4-issue Sonic Universe arc.

  • Aborted Arc: The last we see of him is that he and his gang had broken out of jail and wound up back his dimension. Fiona mentions they had to do something for Dr Finitevus which Scourge was needed for. But he stated he had his own plans in mind. However, due to the Cosmic Retcon, we'll never get to see either of these come to fruition.
  • Bad Boss: He assumed control of the Anti-Freedom Fighters/Suppression Squad by brutally beating them all into submission and they really only continue to follow his lead out of fear. Ergo, they hold no true loyalty for him and they gladly and readily betray him when the opportunity comes up.
    • To emphasize this, it's implied that Scourge may have gouged out Patch's eye, just to make him look different to the Antoine of Mobius.
  • Big Bad: Finally earned this status during the "Bold New Moebius" arc.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: As pointed out by Sonic, Jules and even Fiona, Scourge's conquest of Moebius wasn't really impressive since, unlike Mobius, his world isn't full of powerful villains and monsters. All he did was beat up various warlords across the planet and believed that made him king. When he came to Mobius, nobody but the Freedom Fighters considered him a threat and he was nearly defeated by Metal Sonic and Metal Scourge, latter of whom was literally put together by Eggman at the last minute.
  • Butt-Monkey: Prior to becoming Scourge, this was all he ever was.
  • The Casanova: Has been involved with Anti-Bunnie, Anti-Sally, Anti-Penelope, and Fiona.
    • Also, whilst impersonating Sonic for a time, he hit on, amongst others, the Mobius Prime versions of Bunnie, Amy, and Rouge. There's even a subtle indication in issue #150 that he and Bunnie-Prime actually slept together, due to his taking advantage of her hurt and confusion over Antoine being stealthily replaced by Patch.
  • Cool Shades: It's one of the few things, aside from his leather jacket, that he's retained since his days as Anti-Sonic.
  • Darker and Edgier: He conquered his entire world, single-handedly, in under a week. He gave an alliance of Sonic, Amy Rose, his own reality's insane version of Amy, and several other powerful fighters a serious fight even before he turned into his Super Scourge form.
  • Dirty Coward: He was accused of being this, and quickly proved to be this, by Jules-Prime in issue #192. The robian confronted Scourge when the latter tried to sneak into his house at night to attack Sonic and scared him off by simply refusing to back down to his threats, instead matter-of-factually stating that he had fought on the frontlines in the Great War of Mobius Prime, that he would not simply lay down, and that if he did die, Sonic would be truly livid.
  • Evil Feels Good: Inverted. his Super Scourge form lasts forever and is even stronger than Super Sonic, but makes him feel awful, in contrast to how Sonic feels great when becoming Super Sonic.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Though most of the Moebius ladies hate him for his cheating, he does seem to genuinely love Fiona.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • When Scourge goes in with a half baked plan to hurt Sonic by attacking his father, Jules gives Scourge a stern dressing down. Jules's accusation that Scourge, having lost his own father, would inflict that onto Sonic seems to actually affect Scourge on an emotional level. Though he blows Jules off, Scourge is crying as he leaves.
    • Is horrified by how Ax-Crazy Flying Frog reveals himself to be when the latter tells Scourge his backstory.
  • Evil Twin: He's Sonic from a Mirror Universe. Though he's trying to make himself more than that (maybe).
  • For the Evulz: He has no clear motive for his evil beyond being drunk on his own strength and making Prime!Sonic's life utter hell, though this ranges anywhere from picking scraps with him to trying to destroy his respective universe.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Two jagged-looking scars on his chest (injuries from a fight with Knuckles's father, Locke) are the easiest way to tell him from his counterpart. Well, besides the fact he's green, anyway.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Part of his "evil opposite" look. He's sported this look since he was simply Anti-Sonic, and it's one of the only things he retains after transforming into Scourge.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In his last battle with Sonic, he taps into Anarchy Beryls, his universe equivalent to Chaos Emeralds, and goes super. He proves too powerful, even with both the Freedom Fighters, Suppression Squad, Rob O'the Hedge, and Silver working together, forcing Sonic to briefly retreat. However Sonic realizes something about his power and coax Scourge into depowering by appealing to his ego to beat him in a normal state. Scourge falls for it and finds himself too weak to move. Sonic then explains: Chaos Emeralds in his world give him a little boost when he comes out of it. But since this is an alternate/opposite world, Anarchy Beryls saps Scourge of his energy when he comes out of his super state. And since this was apparently the first time Scourge used them, he was completely ignorant of this fact. The dope ends up knocking himself out with Sonic not even having to touch him.
  • Jerkass: Contrary to Sonic, who can be a jerk but is really nice deep down, Scourge seems to be nothing but pure egotism, spite and cruelty.
  • Not So Different: He loves making speeches to Sonic about their similarities noting that "One Bad Day" would turn Sonic into him. Sonic, by contrast, turns it on him saying that a bit of selflessness and decency would turn Scourge into him. Scourge is horrified at the thought.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: In issue #196, Super Scourge declares that, due to Sonic's resistance, he's decided to give up his plans to rule Moebius or Mobius. Instead, he plans on spin-dashing both planets in half, just because he can, before going on to find other worlds to devastate, swearing to stomp them all until he finally finds one that gives him the respect he feels he deserves.
  • Palette Swap: Justified, given that he is a mirror-universe Sonic. Initially averted, as Anti-Sonic was blue, but turning green was part of his motivation to try and be more than just "Sonic's stupid punk counterpart".
  • Paper Tiger: He talks big but he often he backs down as soon someone stands up to him or a fight turns out to be harder than he anticipated.
  • Parental Neglect: From what we've seen, his father was too busy to pay attention to him. Before fleeing at the end of issue #192, an angry, weeping Scourge dismissively spits that Jules-Prime's no different to his Moebius counterpart.
    Scourge: Just a bunch of empty words. You're no different from my old man after all.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His Super Scourge form has purple fur, along with Black Eyes of Crazy mixed with Red Eyes, Take Warning.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot, as well as all evil Sonics in general.
  • Self-Made Orphan: It's heavily implied that he killed his neglectful father Anti-Jules. As he said to Jules, "Sonic's dad isn't a Mobian anymore. My dad simply isn't."
  • Shout-Out: In Issue 172, he claims that the only thing it would take to make Sonic like him is "one bad day."
  • Smug Snake
  • Super Mode: The craziest looking one in the series.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Upon realizing that Rosy was right there waiting for him when he was forced back to Moebius, his reaction is a plaintive "Oh, please no..."
  • Took a Level in Badass: Before becoming Scourge: a petty wannabe punk who was just a two-bit player in the grand scheme of things. After becoming Scourge: a world-conquering psychopath who beat up both Sonic and all his allies and almost destroyed No Zone.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Fiona. He's stated that he prefers her to the girls in Moebius because rather than being evil by default, she chose to be evil. And apparently Scourge finds that hot.
  • Villain Protagonist: Of the "Jail Break" arc in Sonic Universe.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When the Suppression Squad betrayed him, he decided to go Super and "spindash both worlds in half" for the Hell of it. This leads into...
  • Villainous BSoD: Him being arrested by the Zone Cops, DePowered, and locked up, which seems to completely remove his drive; he lets the other inmates push him around and abuse him, including giving him the degrading nickname "Snot". However, Fiona arriving with the Destructix to break him out of jail snaps him out of it.

     Fiona Fox 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fiona_6728.png

Former Freedom Fighter gone bad. Tails' one-time crush and Sonic's one-time girlfriend.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Prefers Scourge to Sonic.
  • Arch-Enemy: To both Tails and Sally.
  • Consummate Liar: Turns out she had been lying to just about everyone for a while.
  • Dark Action Girl: Tough enough to be a match for many of the non-superpowered characters, and clever and resourceful enough to frequently get the drop on those stronger than her as well.
  • Evil Redhead: Her fur is red too.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She was genuinely on the Freedom Fighters' side before her attraction to Scourge led her astray.
  • Femme Fatale: Prior to her turn to the dark side and full-blown Vamp status.
  • Foreshadowing: Fiona appeared for the first time way back in issue #29, where Tails first falls for her... only to break his heart by revealing she's evil and betraying him to Robotnik. Now, that was just the "Auto-Fiona"note  but... come issue #172, and the real Fiona now breaks Tails' heart by betraying him and revealing she's evil.
  • Freudian Excuse: Abandonment issues. Basically, she used to be on the Freedom Fighters' side years ago, but her cell was captured and she was never rescued — instead, she luckily managed to dig herself out of the prison she was abandoned inside of after two years rather than starving to death like Robotnik planned. She's never forgiven either her family for disappearing nor the Freedom Fighters for failing to save her.
  • Hypocrite: She tells Tails that he can't count on or trust anyone when she betrays the Freedom Fighters in 172. Later when she returns with the Suppression Squad who later betrays Scourge, but she stays loyal to him, something which Sonic calls her out on after she goes off and state how she won't trust or count on anyone. Sonic's words cause her to break into tears and deny the whole thing, which obviously he does not buy. Even after Scourge goes to jail, she gets the Destructix and breaks him out, almost saying that she loves him. It's made pretty clear that Fiona can't follow her own advice.
  • Kick the Dog: Does it frequently, but the nastiest instance of it by far is telling Tails, who had a crush on her, that he can't trust anyone and then slapping him, all with a gleeful smirk on her face.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Fiona is on the receiving end of this from Sally (specifically, she gets punched in the stomach) for trying to manipulate Tails' feelings again.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Was seeing Scourge while dating Sonic, and lying about it the whole time.
  • Never My Fault: She does acknowledge her actions sometimes, but under stress, she's more than willing to shift the blame.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • The Real Remington Steele: The real-life version of the fox robot Tails met so long ago during his solo adventure.
  • Smug Snake: After her Face–Heel Turn.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: When she starts crying and denying that she trusts and depends on Scourge, Sonic just leaves her while muttering "keep telling yourself that," with a pitying look on his face.
    • She tries to deliberately invoke it while Sonic, Sally, Tails, and Ken were on their diplomatic mission in hopes of swaying Tails to help her. However, Sally is there this time and responds with a punch to the gut. Very cathartic if you've read her betrayal to Tails beforehand.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Fiona is the villainous girly girl to Sally Acorn's heroic tomboy. Sally is a Tomboy Princess who has a very unfeminine appearance, and is a character especially divergent from stereotypes associated with females. Fiona does have a pretty rough attitude and her appearance isn't completely girly, but the bow and skirt still make it more so than Sally's. Also, Fiona is a Femme Fatale and The Vamp who uses her feminine charms to manipulate male characters like Tails, much to the annoyance and disgust of Sally, who once gave Fiona a violent gut punch for doing this. Interestingly, Fiona often mocks Sally for her princess status, calling her a "sugar queen", despite Sally being more tomboyish than her.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Scourge. And if there was any doubt as to whether she actually loved him, she goes through the trouble of reorganizing the Destructix as her personal goon squad and letting herself be arrested by the Zone Cops, all in order to break him out of jail.
  • The Vamp: To Tails. She knows Tails likes her, and she has tried to exploit it.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Both emotionally and physically. She not only breaks Tails' heart right to his face, she has the nerve to give him a brutal and unprovoked slap just to rub salt in the wound. And going from the smile on her face, she enjoyed every moment of it. And even afterward, she has the gall to still exploit his feelings towards her.

     Sleuth "Dawgy" Dawg 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-sleuth_217.jpg

Traitor to the Freedom Fighters and one of the founders of the Destrutix.

  • Badass Normal: No powers or machinery, dude only fought with a blaster and his wits.
  • Karma Houdini: He betrays the Freedom Fighters, joins the Destructix, and then... he decides to just pull out of the whole crime thing. He eventually decides to retire and vanishes off the face of the planet with a presumed happy ending.
  • Kick the Dog: When he defects to Robotnik he has his partner, Fly Fly Freddy, forcibly roboticized and sent after the Freedom Fighters. The fight ends up killing Freddy.
  • The Leader: Was one to the group before his retirement.
  • Mauve Shirt: Originally he was just a recurring minor Freedom Fighter and less prominent than Hamlin and his group. His importance increased considerably with his treachery.
  • The Mole: His original role.
  • Only in It for the Money: He bounces in and out of this characterization but it sticks later on. When he and the Destructix are fighting Sonic so they can destroy the weapon to kill the brainwashed Knuckles, Sonic does the job for them (Sonic of course not wanting to kill his friend). With that out of the way Sleuth says they're not being paid to stick around any more and the team pulls out.
  • Punny Name: He's named after the rapper Snoop "Doggy" Dogg.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot. This cost him an appearance on the cover of issue 258.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: In Sonic Universe #15, it is revealed that he not only stepped down as the leader of the Destrutix, but outright retired from the whole crime thing altogether stating he had saved up enough to provide for himself, handing leadership of the Destructix to Fiona.
  • Taking You with Me: They attempt to make a deal with Eggman and he, naturally, betrays them and roboticizes the group. Sleuth is the last to go and manages to toss a grenade declaring that if he's gonna go he's not going alone. The whole place blows up, but everyone caught in the explosion returns in some form or another.

     Sergeant Simian 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sergeant_simian_3838.jpg

     Predator Hawk 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/predator_hawk_8867.jpg

  • The Ace: In his backstory.
  • Always Someone Better: In the Armada, he excelled at everything he did, only for the best opportunities to go to the Battle Lord's son. Later, when part of the Rogues, he continued to feel this way towards the group's leader, Jet. Eventually, he had enough, defected and set out on his own.
  • Anime Feathers
  • Arc Welding: Revealed to have been part of the Battle Bird Armada and connected to the Babylon Rogues years after his introduction.
  • Blood Knight: Part of why he didn't quite fit in with the Armada or the Rogues is because they didn't give him enough opportunity to satisfy his desire for challenging "prey."
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Again, quit both the Armada and the Rogues due to not being rewarded based on ability.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Charmy, in his first appearance.
  • Femme Fatalons: Inverted.
  • Feathered Fiend
  • Odd Name Out: He was part of the original "Fearsome Foursome" group and was the only one whose name was not alliterative.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.

     Lightning Lynx 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lightning_lynx_8650.jpg

     Flying Frog 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flying_frog_6661.jpg

  • Axe-Crazy: This guy enjoys scaring and hurting people more than anything.
  • Alliterative Name Flying Frog; really, what more is there to say? This was actually a common theme for his original team, "The Fearsome Foursome".
  • Evil Counterpart: To Vector, in his first appearance at least. He's a big water-dwelling non-mammalian Mobian.
  • Fragile Speedster: He can move extremely fast, even gliding around, but he goes down in one or two good hits.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Averted. They're flight goggles.
  • Monster Clown: His backstory was that he was originally a clown, but he took more pleasure in scaring people than in entertaining them.
  • Not Quite Flight: Glides around on the flaps of skin connected to his arms and legs.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Like any comicbook frog, his tongue is absurdly long, and he likes showing it off.
  • Psycho for Hire: More so than the other members of the Destructix, due to his... quirks.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Slasher Smile: He's rarely seen without one.
  • Talkative Loon: So much that it even freaks out Scourge.

     The Suppression Squad 

Scourge's old gang, composed entirely of evil versions of the Freedom Fighters. At the present, they are led by Miles, Tail's alternate counterpart. They are Alicia (Sally's Counterpart and ironically Miles main assistant), Patch (Antoine's counterpart), and Boomer (Rotor's Counterpart). Buns (Bunnie's Counterpart) was part of the the group initially but left them after the group left her for dead during a previous outing and she was saved by Dr. Kinbotor (Eggman's counterpart).

  • Appeal to Fear: How Scourge used to keep them in line.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Scourge enforced this amongst the group by making them all try and differ themselves from their prime counterparts. It also happened in story as well as the Suppression Squad was for the most part Scourge's posse who didn't do all that much beyond helping him pull jobs. Much later in the story the group's personalities became more distinct: Patch had his own story about replacing Antoine, Buns pulled a Heel–Face Turn and works against them, and Miles receives a lot of character focus when the group upgrades themselves.
  • Disability Super Power: Buns Rabbot, whose disease forces her to live inside of the Omega Care Unit. Fortunately for her, said device doubles as Powered Armor...
  • Even Evil Has Standards: They make a truce with the Freedom Fighters to stop Scourge, only to exile both him and Sonic to Moebius. In spite of the betrayal, the Squad did it with the knowledge that they could rescue Sonic fairly easily and felt that isolating Scourge alone with Sonic would result in Sonic's victory.
  • Evil Twin: Duh.
  • For Want of a Nail:
    • They have no NICOLE counterpart and their Dr. Kintobor was never killed and replaced with an Anti-Eggman. This means that nanites and New Mobotropolis does not exist on Moebius.
    • Buns was never roboticized and she ended up developing a deadly condition at the base of her spine.
    • Moebius isn't full of powerful villains or strong-willed heroes like the Prime Zone. This means that while the Suppression Squad had an easy time taking over their planet, they weren't prepared for all the dangers of Mobius and their attempt at conquest probably would have ended in quick failure if anyone other than the Freedom Fighters had saw them as a threat.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Buns pulled one after being rescued and placed inside the Omega Care Unit by Dr. Kintobor.
    • Miles seriously considers this after comparing how Sonic fights to Scourge, in a Sonic/Scourge/Metal Sonic/Metal Scourge four-way fight. While he and the rest of the Squad would probably have a better life if they switched sides, their fear of retribution if Scourge does win keeps them in line.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: All of them before their Scourge-enforced makeover.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: The entire group, with the exception of Miles, who sets himself apart from Tails by refusing to be referred to by his nickname.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Patch was originally the most prominent evil counterpart, even more so than Scourge. However, during the "Moebius" storyline, he's put into the background in favor of Scourge and Miles.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • The Starscream: Most of the squad to different extents. Patch, Miles, and Elicia all tried to overthrow Scourge at different points.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: The Prime characters agree to help them get rid of Scourge. First chance they get they try to dump both him and Sonic in their world with no way back. After that problem was solved, they're still plotting on taking revenge against the Prime zone. Or at least they would've if the Cosmic Retcon didn't happen.
  • Whip It Good: Alicia.

     Miles 

The Moebius counterpart to Tails. When Scourge went back to remake the team he made Miles give up his nickname as part of his need to differentiate them from the Mobius counterparts. Miles is, above all else, spiteful, egotistical, and resentful. He's become something akin to the lieutenant under Scourge and Fiona, and leads the Suppression Squad in his absence.


  • Dirty Coward: Miles, whose condescending bravado is a cover up for the fact that he's really a scared little boy.
  • Dragon Ascendant: Miles ascends to team leader after Scourge's defeat, though ultimately this never leads to anything with the reboot.
  • Enfante Terrible: Miles, as if his Psychotic Smirk and his egotistical demeanor weren't big enough hints.
  • Evil Genius: As counter to Tails's role as The Smart Guy. Miles is cunning, ambitious, and an avid scholar in magic.
  • Evil Sorcerer: According to The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia, as part of Miles' distinguishing himself from Tails, he's chosen to study magic instead of technology. This can be seen in comic when Miles chastises Tails for not following in his magical heritage.
  • Hypocrite: Miles insults Tails for using a "childish" nickname, even though the only reason he stopped using it was that Scourge made him.
  • Important Haircut: Miles is hinted to both do this and color his hair in order to appear older, in addition to trying to differentiate himself from Tails. Some fans like to joke that it's a toupee.
  • Insufferable Genius: Miles.
  • Manipulative Bastard Miles graduates to this during the Bold New Moebius arc.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Miles is fond of these, sometimes they make him look intimidating, sometimes they make him look like a child pretending to be intimidating.
  • The Starscream: Originally loyal to Scourge, he eventually convinced the rest of the Suppression Squad to turn on him, and soon after set himself up as their new leader.

     Patch 

The Moebius counterpart to Antoine. He was one of the first to distinguish himself from simply being an Evil Knockoff when Scourge exiled him to Mobius. In Mobius Patch took on Antoine's identity and carefully set about to usurp the throne and place himself in charge.


  • Ascended Extra: Patch was one of the first of the Moebius group to have an arc and also the first to majorly depart from the role as Scourge's lackey.
  • Beard of Evil: He had a blond goatee but Scourge shaved it off with a spin attack. Minus the Goatee and eye patch, Patch could easily pass as Antoine.
  • Dirty Coward: Played With. Patch is, on the surface, much braver than Antoine; he's always ready to get his hands dirty, he can fight quite well, and he's always upfront about his hatred of Scourge. Though scratch the surface, and Antoine is much more willing to keep fighting when things go south while Patch is more likely to cut and run.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Patch wears one, hence the name, and has done since he was just "Anti-Antoine". Though initially the eyepatch was cosmetic, Scourge decided to make it necessary.
  • Eye Scream: Implied. When Sonic and the gang come to Moebotropolis to try and stop Scourge, a very nervous Patch notes that his eyepatch used to be just for show. The obvious implication here is that Scourge gouged it out just to make Patch more distinctive from his Prime self.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Especially noticeable when posing as Antoine. Patch puts on the facade of a gentleman and knight but there are an underlying venom and condescension to his pleasantries.
  • Karma Houdini: Patch impersonated Antoine for over a year, tried to trick Sally into marrying him in order to gain the throne, murdered Antoine's father and poisoned King Max, resulting in him becoming crippled and senile. However, despite causing more harm to the Prime Zone than Scourge ever did, he is neither arrested by the Zone Cops or imprisoned by the Kingdom of Acorn. Sonic simply dumped him back on Moebius after his cover was blown.
  • Kick the Dog: When fighting Antoine after the Team's return, Patch makes sure to get a dig in about Antoine's father being dead.
  • Manipulative Bastard: In addition to impersonating the real Antoine, he tried to take over the Kingdom of Acorn by marrying Sally and poisoning King Max. He was thwarted but he ended up causing the death of Antoine's father.
  • Out of Focus: Patch was at one point, the most prominent of the Moebius residents. However with Anti-Sonic's ascension into Scourge and the Suppression Squad coming back, Patch went back to being a standard lackey with Miles and Scourge taking focus.
  • The Starscream: Patch would always try and kill Anti-Sonic and take power for himself to the point where it had just become a regular topic of conversation amongst the Suppression-Squad. Scourge got tired of it and kicked him to Mobius, which ended up backfiring and giving Patch a better life. Even Scourge was jealous of how good Patch had it there.

     Boomer 

The Moebius counterpart to Rotor. Boomer is the team's tech expert, at one point helping Sonic get back to Mobius Prime when Scourge, then Anti-Sonic, stranged him on Moebius. When Scourge came back and revamped the team, Boomer happily took to replacing his body parts with machinery.


  • Cyborg: He integrated himself with some permanent Power Armor.
  • Evil Counterpart: While he's the Anti-Rotor, Boomer, post upgrade, is an evil mirror of Bunnie especially as Bunnie's Moebius counterpart defected. When fighting Bunnie is suprised that Boomer would willingly alter his body for power especially as her own roboticization was unwilling.
  • Evil Genius: Whips up inventions and all manner of sinister gismos for the team to use.
  • Satellite Character: While Boomer has done a few things on his own, notably sending Sonic home when Scourge tossed him to Moebius, he's easily the least developed compared to the other Suppression Squad members and mostly exists as a tag along. In some ways this is a similarity he has with Rotor as Rotor found himself struggling to stay relevent in the changing times.

     Rosy the Rascal 

The Moebius counterpart to Amy. She wished on a magic ring to be older for Scourge, and the ring made her crazy in exchange for granting her wish.

  • Axe-Crazy: How much? If it's alive, it can be smashed.
  • The Dreaded: Even Scourge doesn't like tangling with her. It took him having to go super just to get her out of his way.
  • Drop the Hammer: Just like Amy, she wields a hammer. Unlike Amy, her hammer has spikes on the end. She even winds up destroying Amy's hammer when she tries to fight her.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Well that and a magic wish that corrupted her mind.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Slasher Smile: Constantly, there barely a moment where it isn't on her face.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Showcasing how her mind has snapped, her Piko-Piko Mallet has its ends shaped into large, conical spikes, making it far more lethal.
  • Mythology Gag: Wears Amy's initial design from the Sonic CD games. Largely as both a way to distinguish her from Amy and to showcase that while her body has grown, her mind certainly didn't.
  • Tragic Villain: Rosy just wanted Scourge to notice her and return her feelings. In the process, she wound up turning herself into such a psychotic little monster that even he would never love her back.
  • Yandere: Rosy loves Scourge so much she wants to bust his head in.
  • Yangire: She wants everyone to be smashed.

Iron Dominion

     The Iron Queen (Regina Ferrum) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Iron_Queen3_9327.png

A technomage who controlled the Dragon Kingdom with her partner The Iron King. First seen as a more typical sorceress and reappeared later, revamped, to take control of the Eggman Empire after Eggman lost his mind.

  • Ambiguously Human: She looked like a human, but was married to the Iron King, an ox. A fan writing in for clarification was told she was actually a badger. However, when she was brought back it turned out The Queen is indeed human (an Overlander to be specific), and the titles "King" and "Queen" are purely honorary (so she's not an animal or in any sort of Interspecies Marriage).
  • Amplifier Artifact: Used a Power Ring to amplify her staff.
  • Big Bad: Of the "Iron Dominion" arc (while Eggman was incapacitated by a Villainous Breakdown.)
  • Black Magic: Her first appearance had her using actual magic as opposed to Magitek.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Upon her defeat at the hands of Sonic, she shouts out Robotnik's often-repeated statement of: "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!"
  • Characterization Marches On: In her first appearance she used actual magic, spoke more informally, and struggled to take over a small area of the Dragon Kingdom.
  • Dragon Lady: In the final clash.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Initially it seemed she was using Snively for her own ends. But when he actually came looking for her during his defection from Eggman, she actually returns his feelings for her.
  • Humiliation Conga: She had seemingly taken over New Metropolis, could control it at her whim and had the four houses and the Dark Egg Legion as a grand army with Iron King acting as an enforcer. Victory seemed well assured...then Nicole broke free from her control and strung her along until Sonic returned to which she turned on her. Ken informs the clans their leaders have broken ties with the Iron Dominion to which the clans promptly abandon her. Lien-Da seizes the opportunity to betray her (though that problem Regina does manage to solve by activating Lien-Da’s explosive in her cybernetics and putting her on the brink of death but this forces the Legion to flee as a result), the Iron King is sent flying through the stratosphere by Ken, Snively turns tail and goes crawling back to Eggman leaving her to fend for herself against the Freedom Fighters. She tries one last feeble attack by using the nanites to turn into a dragon. But when it's clear she's outnumbered and outgunned by the heroes, she tries to retreat, only for Sonic to stop her and drop her right in the middle of the Freedom Fighters to which she's quickly arrested. And all of that in one issue. -Whistles-
  • Magitek: She can control the electrical impulses found in all active electronics and send him out at will. As you can imagine, she's quite dangerous to opponents who are partly or completely robotic. And especially to environments controlled by them.
  • Meaningful Name: Regina means queen, Ferrum means iron.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Even in print, it manages to be grating.
  • Playing with Fire: In her original appearance she set Mount Stormtop on fire via magic.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot — though she is actually a Frank Strom creation.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: She wears a red-and-black striped dress.
  • Retcon: Originally she used actual magic; in her reappearance she was stated to use technomagic.
  • Start of Darkness: A backstory fleshes hers out — she was born into a "technomancy" cult, and trained in Magitek as a child. She never knew she was doing anything illegal until they were all arrested and she was ultimately exiled, with no friends or any place to go, just as the great war was breaking out. She became a villain to claw her way back to power, restore her cult's status, and get revenge.
  • Technopath: She has the ability to control machinery with her magic.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: The statuesque Iron Queen dating the four-foot-tall Snively.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Snively. Though it would seem each of them were to an extent using each other to advance their own positions, there's some genuine mutual affection there too.
  • Vain Sorceress
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair

     The Iron King (Jun Kun) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Iron_king_1_3118.png
A super strong, nigh-invulnerable ox Warlord from the Dragon Kingdom, The Iron King is the Iron Queen's partner in crime and the co-ruler of the Iron Dominion. Born with the name Jun Kun, he was initially a petty warlord with aims of conquering the Dragon Kingdom, and allowed the technomage Regina Ferrum to live in his territory so long as she used her powers to serve his purposes. The two eventually became partners, but even with Regina's powers they proved unable to hold on to power or conquer either the Free People of the Kingdom or the Ninja Clans they warred against. This changed once they received backing from Dr. Robotnik to become Sub-Bosses, establishing the Iron Dominion and conquering the Free Peoples even though the Ninja Clans still escaped their influence. He would later join the Iron Queen in trying to take Eggman's empire for their own, clashing with Sonic and the Freedom Fighters several times before finally being defeated along with the Iron Queen. His current whereabouts are unknown.

  • Achilles' Heel: To the fan of Xen Fing.
  • A Load of Bull: Rather self-evident.
  • A Twinkle in the Sky: How he's finally defeated when Ken breaks out a mystical fan he had thought hidden away. With one sweep, Ken sends him flying right out of the kingdom.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: His default strategy. Then again seeing how strong as he is, it's pretty justifed.
  • The Brute: Could be the poster child for this position in the comics, being big on brawn and possessing little in the way of brains.
  • Dumb Muscle: While more ambitious than most in this regard, in the end he’s this… he doesn’t have much in the way of strategic thinking beyond hitting things really hard, and generally leaves the planning to the Iron Queen.
  • Expy: In some ways, to Kalibak of the DC Comics universe, being a big bruiser with an affinity for using a Tremor Mace in combat.
  • General Failure: He was this before getting before receiving backing from Robotnik, being unable to conquer either the Free People of the Dragon Kingdom OR the Ninja Clans.
  • The Juggernaut: Plays this role in the comic, being super-strong and almost impossible to really hurt. The best most can manage against him is slowing him down rather than flat out defeating him.
  • Large and in Charge: Towers over his subordinates, along with everyone else.
  • Meaningful Name: His name, Jun Kun, roughly translates into ‘Ruler of Earth’.
  • Mighty Glacier: Neither physically nor mentally the quickest of individuals, but still very, VERY powerful.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Another of his powers. Curiously, he is the only character in the comic with Super-Strength who is also displayed as being invulnerable.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Even with the comic gradually utilizing the streamlined design philosophy of the games for most of its Mobian characters, the Iron King still stands out.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Takes enormous pride in being a warrior and is VERY boastful about his prowess as one. This had lead him to commit acts of Bond Villain Stupidity, as he believes that letting someone live with the shame of defeat is worse than actually killing them… sufficed to say, this does not work out well for him. At all.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot — like with the Queen, he is actually a Frank Strom creation.
  • Shout-Out: Just as Monkey Khan is a shoutout to Sun Wukong from Journey to the West, so too is the Iron King a shoutout to the Demon Bull King of the same story, being a big evil Ox who has clashed with Monkey Khan in the past.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Subverted; his title is strictly ceremonial, and he is emphatically NOT the Iron Queen’s husband. Though he was weirdly resentful of Snively during the time they spent in New Megaopolis…
  • Super Strength: Confirmed to be one of the top five strongest creatures on Mobius.
  • Weapon of Choice: His Tremor Mace.

Other Villains

     Mammoth Mogul 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9-6-10_Mogul_6056.jpg

An ancient mammoth wizard with a penchant for verbosity.

  • Affably Evil: As power hungry as he is, he is distinguished by his upper-class etiquette, and has scruples concerning bargains. Is also finding enjoyment as a businessman to pass time before he can finally make a power play. That doesn't mean he won't enjoy making Sonic's life hell in the mean time however.
  • A God Am I: When hopped up on enough Chaos energy, he became Master Mogul, who was strong enough to nearly destroy the whole Multiverse. Fortunately, Tails was able to stop him.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: Of DC Comics' Vandal Savage. They're both a centuries-old warlord who was given immortality by Green Rocks. And like Vandal Savage in the DC Animated Universe, Mogul ends up surviving a future disaster and regretting the things he's done.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Usually can be seen sporting a really nice suit.
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: He ended up defeating Dimitri as Enerjak by showing up and depowering him to advance his own plans. In the "Enerjak Reborn" arc Sonic admits its a shame that they don't have any other magical bad guys on hand to do the dirty work again with the new Enerjak.
  • Big Bad: Has had his turn at being this several times over the course of the series.
  • Complete Immortality: His main schtick, thanks to the Chaos Emerald embedded in his chest.
  • Cruel Elephant: A villainous mammoth with ambitions of world domination.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: His current status.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Pulled this on Dimitri and Ixis Nagus. His speech to a hospitalized Dimitri cinches it.
    Mogul: "We're two of a kind you and I! Both creations from our exposure to the Chaos Emerald and both staring deep into the dark abyss."
    Dimitri: "You didn't mention — how much — we're accountable for!"
    Mogul: "Is that a guilty conscience you're wearing on your sleeve Dimitri? It's a bit late in the game for that, wouldn't you say?"
    Dimitri: "I did what I believed to be right! Can you say the same?"
    Mogul: "The only thing that matters in life is survival! All else is secondary!"
  • Evil Is Petty: Sonic's opinion of him. He's powerful but more focused on greed than anything and not above just trying to make Sonic look bad.
  • Evil Sorcerer: The strongest in the series.
  • Expy: Of Vandal Savage.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of almost the entire pre-genesis wave continuity, arguably. Thousands of years ago, he founded the Order of Ixis, which eventually led to the creation of Ixis Naugus, whose actions, which may include starting the Great War, in turn led to Dr. Robotnik's rise to power, who's death ultimately led to nearly every villain in the book today, with Naugus responsible for the ones that aren't Mogul. Naugus and Robotnik are still quite active (and are, in fact, the current top two villains of the series), whereas Mogul has semi-retired from active villainy, running a casino and deciding to use his immortality to outlive the heroes and make his move then.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the far off future since there isn't really anything for him to take over anymore due to the world being destroyed. He devotes his time to training Silver.
  • Informed Ability: Boasts in one instance when lacking a Chaos Emerald that he still has his magic and claims to possess Super Strength due to his great size (he never took part in fight without using magic in the past), but got knocked out by Sally and a motorcycle immediately afterwords.
  • Long Game: After gaining a new Chaos Emerald and his full power, he decides to take advantage of his immortality and simply wait it out until Sonic either died or was too old to oppose him, then resume his plan to Take Over the World; by this point, he's realized that no matter what he does or how powerful he gets, Sonic would always find a way to win.
  • Legitimate Businessmen's Social Club: His Casino Night Club, where he employs retired badniks and is directly adjacent to a place called the Bottom of the Barrel Bar and Grill.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Almost always a very fine suit.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: As a mammoth, he looks a lot more realistic than many of the other Mobians.
  • Old Master: He's Silver's mentor in his future, having apparently seen the error of his ways, and Silver is completely ignorant of his former status as a villain.
  • Psychic Powers: Part and parcel of his super-powers.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot — though ironically actually a Scott Fulop creation. Fulop would eventually lose in his attempt to claim copyright in court against Archie Comics.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Is, at least, 12,000 years old.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Mogul has been sealed away a number of times in the series, but he always breaks loose.
    • He was briefly sealed in the Master Emerald when it was formed, and escaped when Eggman broke it to feed Chaos.
    • He was also trapped inside his own Chaos Emerald for a while and held there by the Ancient Walkers. However having wounded them earlier they were dying and he finally kills them when his plans for the Arachne to retrieved the Sword of Acorns comes to past.
    • He was then imprisoned in the Egg Grapes, Eggman noted that Mogul's powers prevented him from degrading like so many other victims of the process. A.D.A.M. eventually frees him.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Routinely mocked for this.
    Geoffery St. John: You said that all in one breath. You are a talker.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: While mammoths are not true dinosaurs, they're among the most well-known and iconic of prehistoric non-dinosaurs. Mogul is also notable in that he's one of the only characters in the series to be derived from an extinct animal as opposed to an extant one.
  • Taught by Experience: After breaking out of the prison in New Mobotropolis, he avoids fighting Sonic. Realizing that no matter what he did, SOMETHING would stop him, Mogul decided that since he was immortal, he would just wait till Sonic died of old age. And then Take Over the World. This probably wound up backfiring, because whatever cataclysm hit in the future wound up doing it in Sonic's lifetime and he likely wasn't powerful enough to combat the new threat, which likely contributed to his Heel–Face Turn in the future.
  • Wicked Cultured: Despite his oft-unabashed malevolent goals, he conducts himself with great pride and decorum.
  • Villain Respect: In spite of all of his attempts at killing the heroes he does hold some respect for them. When he and Amadeus Prower are in prison, Mogul tells him that Tails is a remarkable boy and that Amadeus should be proud of his son.

     Enerjak 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/enerjak_317.jpg

A demigod being imbued with the power of a living Chaos Emerald. The first Enerjak was Dimitri, who attempted to drain power from the Chaos Emeralds that were keeping Angel Island afloat to try to bring it back down to earth. His device failed, granting him the power that rivaled a god, which he intended to use until he was sealed away for several centuries.

  • 0% Approval Rating: The Dark Mobius Enerjak. He's gone so insane with power that nobody on the planet wants him around, and none of them can still do anything to stop him regardless.
  • A God Am I: All of them, and they more or less are.
  • Hero Killer: Is extremely feared by the heroes regardless of the incarnation. Knuckles really only survived against Dimitri the first time due to Idiot Ball moments on Dimitri's part, Knuckles required Super Sonic to fight him, when Knuckles was Enerjak, Super Sonic was needed to fight him, the Dark Mobius incarnation had already beaten every hero and villain from the main stories (including Super Sonic), the Freedom Fighters in that timeline were only still alive because he was bored and let them live for his amusement.
  • The Juggernaut: While this trope could be applied to any of them, the Dark Mobius incarnation fits it the best. He turned evil and alienated anybody who was on his side, but even with that nothing on his planet for decades could stop him. In his fight with Silver, he No Sells everything thrown at him, with the best Silver can do is make him mad. He's only stopped by his own daughter using the Sword of Acrons to drain his power.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Any time a version of Enerjak shows it a sign things will take a turn for the worse.
  • Legacy Character: So far, Dimitri, Knuckles, his counterpart from the "Dark Mobius" universe, and said counterpart's daughter have worn the mantle of Enerjak. Finitevus has implied that there have been more, touching back on the fact that when in flashbacks Dimitri took the name Enjerak he said he was taking the name of an "ancient evil."
    • The encyclopedia released recently reveals Dimitri was the third Enerjak. The first was an echidna researcher who was given the chance to Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence but became corrupted and his consciousness was scattered across the Chaos Force. This original Enerjak suppresses the consciousness of others, including Dimitri, Knuckles, and an unnamed Enerjak who fought in the Forgotten Wars.
  • Physical God: Even among super form characters these guys are strong. The Dark Mobius Enerjak especially since he was Chaos Knuckles with full mastery of his power.
  • Reality Warper: To a slight degree.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: More Dimitri than Knuckles' incarnation.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Smug Snake: The Dimitri and Dark Mobius incarnations. The former shows that he is far more powerful than Knuckles, and only loses because he flat doesn't use his powers when fighting him. The latter is even more smug since he's had the entire planet to torment with nothing to stop him.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: More Knuckles' incarnation than Dimitri's (though his Dark Mobius counterpart is more Knight Templar)
  • Women Are Wiser: Unlike Dimitri and Knuckles, Jani-Ca retained her sane state of mind after transforming into Enerjak, and is implied to be smart enough to despose of her powers after she briefly utilizes them, solely for (genuinely) benevolent purposes.

     Uma Arachnis / Arachne 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Arachnis_9100.png

A mysterious spider ninja and servant to Ixis Naugus with a drive to claim the mystical Sword of Acorns. She and her children, a ninja team of Spiders dubbed 'The Arachne', took it upon themselves to steal the sword from any who wished to wield it, good or evil. Both Arachnis and her children died guarding the sword.

  • The Ace: She was the top ninja of her clan.
  • All Webbed Up: A natural ability of hers as a spider.
  • Enigmatic Minion: For years her origin, why she was in the Zone of Silence, and her reasons for serving Naugus (and later Kodos) were unexplained. Eventually it was revealed that she was a member of the Gossamer Clan, and that her allegiance Naugus and Kodos was all part of a VERY convoluted scheme to prevent the Source of All from falling into evil.
  • Genetic Memory: A natural ability, this is how she continued her plans after death and how her children gained their skills and drive to capture the Sword of Acorns.
  • Killed Off for Real:
    • Uma Arachnis badly wounded by Kodos after he went nuts, later dying from the poison killing Kodos.
    • The Arachne were all victims of the Egg Grapes.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She has SIX arms, courtesy of being a spider.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Often fought with several weapons at once. Interestingly, her children all specialized in the use of a single weapon.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • The Quiet One: Only spoke a few times over the course of the entire comic.
  • Screw Destiny: By peering into her clan’s mystical ‘Web of Destiny’, she foresaw that the Source of All would eventually fall into the hands of evil. Everything she did in the comic was to stop this.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Everything she did was done to prevent a catastrophe. Towards this end she allied with power hungry would-be world conquerors and set-up her own children to continue her goals after her death.

     Warlord Kodos 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/WarlordKodos_8745.png

The Kingdom of Acorn's Warlord before Julian, he's a key figure to the comic's backstory. Plotting to overthrow King Acorn long before Robotnik came along, Kodos conspired with Ixis Naugus towards this end and even helped him drive the kindly Nate Morgan out of the Kingdom. Later, with the help of Naugus, he would orchestrate the Great War, and was eventually betrayed and banished to the Zone of Silence by Julian, where he would become a lackey of Naugus. After escaping the Zone of Silence, Kodos went solo, clashing several times with Sonic and the Freedom Fighters and as well trying to capture the Sword of Acorns. Eventually driven mad by the irradiated environment of Robotropolis and died falling into a crevice.

  • Ambition Is Evil: Had plans to overthrow the King before Robotnik betrayed him.
  • An Axe to Grind: His weapon of choice.
  • Ax-Crazy: Became this eventually. By the time of his final appearance he had been driven completely mad, with an obsessive focus on the Sword of Acorns.
  • The Berserker: Tended to resort to most problems with his axe, and relished every minute of it. After being poisoned, he took this Up to Eleven.
  • Blood Knight: Pretty much his whole motivation for starting the Great War, as he only knows how to fight.
  • The Brute: Served this role when working for Naugus, though he was a bit smarter and much more ambitious than most examples of this trope.
  • Cats Are Mean: The meanest in this comic; he started the Great War out of raw hatred and ambition.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Much like his partners Naugus and Robotnik, Kodos ultimately doesn't cotton to playing second fiddle, plotting to betray his king and then attempting to murder Naugus when they succeeded at their plan to drive Nate Morgan away.
  • Disney Villain Death: How he met his end, though he would have died eventually even if he hadn't taken a plunge.
  • Fantastic Racism: Felt a great deal of this for Overlanders, enough so that he not only framed Nate Morgan and successfully drove him into self-exile, but also ended up orchestrating the Great War. Interestingly, he was willing to put this aside and actually tried to coax Julian into assisting him with his own plans for taking over the Kingdom, recognizing him as a kindred spirit.
  • General Failure: While a brave and fierce warrior, Kodos ultimately became this during the Great War, proving unable to beat back the Overlanders. It's also the reason he was demoted in favor of Julian when the latter defected over to the Mobians.
  • Killed Off for Real: After being poisoned by Robotropolis' toxins he became a feral, maddened beast, going on a rampage and attempting to steal the Sword of Acorns. After a brief battle with the Freedom Fighters he fell into a crevice, and Wordof God states that if the fall didn't kill him he would have eventually succumbed to the toxins anyway.
  • Mysterious Past: The Encyclopedia notes that not much is known of Kodos Lion's history before coming to the Kingdom of Acorn. He was born in the Efrikan continent and the peaceful ways of his home made him leave to seek combat, but beyond that nothing else is known.
  • Panthera Awesome: Comes with being a lion.
  • Predecessor Villain: To Robotnik. Like Robotnik, he was the Warlord of the Kingdom of Acorn and a trusted servant of the King, and secretly plotted to usurp his liege and dominate Mobius afterwards. Even better, he tutored Robotnik in the art of war and tried to induct him into his conspiracy to conquer the Kingdom, only to be betrayed by him.
  • Put on a Bus: Dead, but now can never be referenced after the reboot.
  • Rock Beats Laser: Evidently a practitioner of this; flashbacks show that even during the Great War he only ever fought with his battleaxe, while the Overlanders were into using guns and futuristic tech to fight the Mobians. Somehow, despite this, he managed to survive the war long enough for Robotnik to defect over to the Kingdom.
  • Taken for Granite: When he returns from the Zone of Silence with Naugus, Naugus turns him into crystal to increase Kodos's durability in battle. When Naugus's wand is destroyed, Kodos loses the magic animating his crystaline body and became a "temporary" statue.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Upon finding a teenage Mobian and Overlander conspiring to end the war via false scouting reports, Kodos has them brought before him and then proceeds to murder them both with his bare hands. He sends their bodies to their respective sides, hoping to finally turn the longstanding aggression into a war.

     Dr. Finitevus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dr__Finitevus_1_7631.png

Originally a normal echidna scientist, he was corrupted by excessive Chaos Energy when attempting to de-power Chaos Knuckles. This renegade Echidna has developed a twisted belief that the world is corrupt that needs to be cleansed, and will do anything he can to accomplish his goals.

  • Aborted Arc: Last seen of him was in a Sonic Universe arc where he tried to steal the Master Emerald. He was defeated and thrown off Angel Island but was still scheming something. He's mentioned by the Destructix that they made a deal with him in exchange for needing a Warp Ring to bust out Scrouge. But then the Cosmic Retcon happened and any storylines with him went out the window.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Knuckles, replacing Dimitri.
  • Big Bad: For the "Enerjak Reborn" arc.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Rather than fighting hand-to-hand, he prefers using his warp rings to make enemies knock themselves out. He's also threatened to close a warp ring while someone is only partially through it.
  • Enemy Mine: Partnered with Locke to prevent A.D.A.M. from seizing the Master Emerald on the grounds that he "needed it for his own reasons". He later used this temporary alliance (plus hired humanitarian aid from the Destructix) to convince Locke to leave Angel Island in his care and search for his ancestors.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Seemed honestly surprised that Knuckles' friends were willing to die to save him.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Knuckles, in a way. He actually looks a bit like a negative photo of Knux, fights using similar powers, and has an evil version of the emerald chant from Sonic Adventure.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Ordinarily a brilliant mind from the Echidna city of Albion, an incident involving Chaos Knuckles, Saffron and Charmy Bee, and an invention of his own creation led to his transformation into one of the worst villains Mobius had ever seen. Dangerous and manipulative, he nearly brought about The End of the World as We Know It by using Knuckles, and was directly responsible for Albion's destruction and the deaths of hundreds of Echidnas.
  • Karma Houdini: While none of his plans have ever worked the way he intended, he's still responsible for Enerjak rampaging across Moebius and has yet to suffer any beat downs or Humiliation Conga defeats the way other villains have, because he always gets away thanks to his warp rings.
    • Save for the last encounter with Knuckles which ended with him thrown off Angel Island. He survives (albeit it with a broken arm) but at least he had more of a defeat there.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He once manipulated Scourge, the Destructix, Dimitri, Knuckles and his father, and two factions of the Dark Legion into helping him create a new Enerjak.
  • Obviously Evil: By far the most evil looking character in the comic and often lampshaded by Scourge of all people who refers to him as "Dr Creepy Von Evil".
  • Pragmatic Villainy:
    • In his debut, Finitevus has to deal with an Echidna couple who's child had been blinded and who wanted Knuckles to cure him with his chosen one powers. Finitevus had told them that the Legion could restore the child's sight easily through robotic implants and the couples' insistence in relying on superstition instead of hard science causes Finitevus to get into a shouting fit.
    • Though Finitevus is one of the most morally black characters he also teams up with the heroes a number of times when his goals align with theirs. He allied with the Dark Legion and the Brotherhood against Eggman and the Dingo Regime and later he and Locke worked together to stop A.D.A.M. from taking the Master Emerald.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He believes that the world is corrupt, and that it needs to be "purified" - in other words, destroyed. Though it's more Knight Templar if anything.
  • You Killed My Father: Not directly, but Knuckles holds him responsible for the death of his father, since Locke killed himself in order to free Knuckles from Finitevus' control.

     Sand-Blaster Freedom Fighters 

A group of freedom fighters who originally fought against Robotnik's tyranny in Sand Blast City. However, after the Robians were de-roboticized, they revealed that the fighting had left them self-centered, cruel, and prejudiced; they treated the former robians so badly that they willingly returned to Eggman and signed on as members of his Dark Egg Legion to defend themselves.

  • Fantastic Racism: Their treatment of the former Robians is definitely an example of this; "Once a Robian, always a Robian," was their motto.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Let's just say they're not the most morally upright Freedom Fighter group.
  • Jerkass: Every single one of 'em
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Deconstructed when they first meet Sonic, as they like him so much they try to keep him captive.
  • My Greatest Failure: This is the subject of a story where Sonic reflects on how he could probably have dealt with them in a better way the first time. A talk about it helps him deal, and he soon has even bigger problems on his mind. This is before the Sand-Blasters really Jump Off The Slippery Slope.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Jack finds out that Mighty had tricked him with a phony identity and was league with the Chaotix, he orders his troops to fire on Mighty as, as the time, he was being bound by shackles. Mighty's sister, Matilda, got in the way and took a blast for him. As you can imagine, Mighty didn't take kindly to that since he had just reunited with her. Cue Unstoppable Rage, Mighty breaking loose, and single-handily going to town on their vehicles, forcing them to run for their lives. Considering this was their last appearance before the retcon, it was a fitting send off.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Their prejudice against and mistreatment of the ex-Robians in Sand Blast City is what drove them to join the Dark Egg Legion in the first place.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Renegade Splinter Faction: Not that the separate Freedom Fighter groups were a unified front in the first place, but this one always stood out.
  • Shout-Out: Their appearances were based on several Looney Tunes characters. Jack Rabbit was Bugs Bunny, Tex was Wile E. Coyote, and Rev was the Road Runner.

     General Helmut von Stryker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/VonStryker_4157.jpg

The leader of the Dingo Regime, Helmut Von Stryker was an enemy of Knuckles’ turned quasi-ally. For centuries the dingoes and echidna fought tooth and nail. When both the dingoes and the echidna returned from their pocket dimensions in the present, Von Stryker attempted to resume the ancient feud only to be beaten back by Knuckles while the Dingo’s home city was destroyed. Living at the mercy of his former enemies, Von Stryker did everything in his power to try and ensure that his people would have a life outside the slums of Echidnapolis, encouraging extreme activism to get his message across. Was temporarily usurped by his son, and in the aftermath, he returned to leading his people in the Sandopolis Zone.

  • Anti-Hero: Though he debuts as an antagonist Helmut ultimately spends more time as a heroic character or uneasy ally.
  • Anti-Villain: While generally antagonistic toward Knuckles and echidna-kind, Von Stryker’s main concerns were taking care of his people and ensuring that they were given the same standard of living as the echidna.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Overlaps with Ass Kicking Equals Authority.
  • Badass Normal: Despite being a normal dingo, he managed to punch Mammoth Mogul in the face and live.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Punched Mammoth Mogul in the face while Mogul was ‘Master Mogul’, and actually managed to hurt him.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: He outfits himself with a powerful gauntlet for his first fight with Knuckles. Subsequent fights with the Dark Legion and Mammoth Mogul had him resort to standard Dingo Firearms and his own physical strength.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He didn't approve of his son's methods but he did love him nonetheless and is visibly sadden by his death.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He may have been against the Echidnas but he never went as far as enslaving them as his son did. He just wanted a better life for his people away from them. He's also not above teaming with Knuckles for the greater good.
  • Eyepatch After Timeskip: Stryker was last seen leading the Dingos in an attack against the Xorda superweapon pre-timeskip. Post-timeskip he was MIA for quite a while as his son had deposed him; when he appears again in the desert he's revealed to be wearing an eyepatch likely as a result of his son.
  • Fantastic Racism: As per tradition, feels a good deal of this towards the echidna.
  • Fighting for a Homeland: His ultimate goal. The Dingo’s own homeland was destroyed when the zones shifted, and since then he has been trying to give his people a life that didn’t rely on the Echidna’s dubious ‘charity’. In the aftermath of Enerjak Reborn, he got what he wanted.
  • Four-Star Badass: Seems to be a prerequisite for being the leader of the dingoes.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Had a rather gnarly looking one over his right eye. When his son took over the regime, he lost it entirely.
  • Heartbroken Badass: In spite of everything, he still loved his son. Kage's death shook him despite his acknowledgment that he was a tyrant.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: A major difficulty that Knuckles had in dealing with Stryker during the Dingo immigration into Echidnopolis is that Stryker was often in the right. The Dingoes were stuck as second class citizens and Stryker's belief that the government was attempting to go back on their promise for housing is ultimately proven correct. Even though he was critical of them, Stryker really did try to have the Dingoes cooperate with the Echidnas and mobilized them to defend the city multiple times.
  • Large and in Charge: Before the Art Shift dingoes were typically portrayed as being taller than other animals, and Von Stryker was bigger than the other Dingo.
  • Noble Bigot: While feeling a great deal of loathing for the echidna, he looked out for his people’s best interests and fought against his son’s genocidal actions.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Dingo society revolved around their military, and is more about discipline and order than ‘honor’ and ‘might makes right’.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot.
  • Shout-Out: His design and Germanic name are shout-outs to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Everything he did was done in the name of giving his people a better life.

     General Kage von Stryker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/KageVonStryker_6545.png

The son of Helmut Von Stryker. During Sonic’s time in space, Kage overthrew his father for leadership of the dingoes and accepted military backing from the Eggman Empire. With their combined troops, technology, and weaponry, Kage began a horrific war of retribution and conquest against the echidna. He was eventually ousted from power thanks to the efforts of Knuckles, Sonic, and the Chaotix, but unfortunately, he managed to reduce the Echidna population significantly. During the Enerjak Reborn arc, Kage was disintegrated after bad-mouthing Enerjak.

  • Antagonistic Offspring: He was this towards his father, whom he resented for actually working with the echidna rather than taking the most violent route possible.
  • Asshole Victim: Knuckles as Enerjak is unleashed on the world and he does a lot of damage. He displaces people, depowered the legion, exiled the innocent Echidna, and attacked his friends. However when it came to actual murder the only one he ended up killing was Kage which kept him from becoming too unsympathetic considering Kage's notorious cruelty.
  • Broken Pedestal: He once respected his father, but became frustrated by his willingness to work with the echidna, leading Kage to usurp his position.
  • Cyborg: His entire left side, as well as his right hand and the right half of his face, is cybernetic.
  • Even Evil Can Be Loved: His father still had some feelings of paternal affection for him after all he'd done. Though considering what Kage did to him it's implied this wasn't mutual.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Helmut may have hated echidnas, but he could be reasoned with and was willing to open a dialogue with them. Kage would not and resented that Helmut would even consider working with them.
  • Fantastic Racism: Like his father, he hates the echidna. Unlike his father, he decided to just kill them all.
  • Fascist, but Inefficient: While Helmut was authoritarian most viewed his administration as fairly effective; Kage by contrast was far more of a fascist and his rule was far less effective. Even though Kage was essentially running Angel Island for a time, his regime was mostly concerned about snuffing out the echidnas and working to expand Eggman's grip. The Dingo Regime still traded with the outside world but a number of civilian Dingos noted how much more efficient Helmut's rule was than Kage's.
  • Kick the Dog: Kage was often depicted as cruel and brutal to the point of pointlessness.
    • The Echidna population was reduced significantly because of Kage and his actions. He even willingly joined the Eggman Empire for the resources to carry out his genocide.
    • While he enjoyed torturing Locke he was at least under orders by Eggman to get information from him. What he did to Harry though was largely because Harry's betrayal pissed him off and Kage disfigured him.
  • Killed Off for Real: He's vaporized by Enerjak.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: The dingoes, in general, skirted this line thanks to their fascist styled culture and their leader, but after Kage took over it becomes blatant; menacing uniforms, a flag with a red, black and white color scheme, enacting genocidal cruelty against a longstanding ethnic enemy by putting them into work-camps, etc.
  • Psycho Electro: His cybernetics gave him this powerset.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Before his introduction, there had never been any mention of Helmut Von Stryker having a son or any kind of family.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To his father. He was created when the writers decided that Von Stryker going on a genocidal rampage was out of character.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Yes, Kage, mouth off about how many echidna you’ve killed to the crazy echidna demigod. That’s BOUND to work out for you in the long run.
  • Torture Technician: Liked to handle this job personally.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: He's his dad with cyborg parts.
  • The Usurper: Overthrew his father for command over the dingoes.

     A.D.A.M 

A computer program meant to serve Eggman. It gained sentience and assumed control of Eggman's nanites, using the Freedom Fighter, Tommy Turtle, as a living avatar to bond onto and try to kill the doctor.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: For the good doctor though no ally of the Freedom Fighters. He's looking out for himself.
  • Bait the Dog: Initially A.D.A.M. didn't seem all that bad. He was a Comically Serious character with a naivety stemming from his literal-mindedness; Tails even "defeats" him in the first arc by playing a game of riddles, which A.D.A.M. admits to having enjoyed. As the series goes on A.D.A.M. grows to be a much more violent, manipulative, and cruel character than originally believed, nearly killing Bunnie, jacking Tommy's body, and having his sister M killed.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to his sister Mecha's Abel. Mecha and A.D.A.M. actually didn't have much of a relationship at all, but A.D.A.M. saw her as a threat to his plans and tricked Robotnik into ordering her to self destruct; later A.D.A.M. would delete her files himself. It's implied that part of this was out of envy of M being Eggman's favorite.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Short for Autonomous Digital Assault Microbe. Also for "Adam Determines Anonymous' Movements".
  • Manipulative Bastard: Manipulated a lot of event behind the scenes including Mammoth Mongol, Ixis and the Destructix as well as Eggman. This lead to the death of his "sister", M whom he framed was working against Eggman. Eggman promptly had M self destruct as a result and any files of her deleted. He later regretted that decision when he found out A.D.A.M's deception.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Sorta, due to making a city full of nanites. NICOLE would later use it to create a New Mobotropolis, locating the citizens of Knothole there after Eggman destroys their initial home.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot. However, his nanites are briefly mentioned in the first post-reboot issue.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: When it took control of the nanites, it was able to do this. Though could only move around using Tommy Turtle's body.

     Nicolette "Nic" the Weasel 
Nack's younger sister and a capable thief and bounty hunter in her own right. She had a rivalry with Rouge and Fiona Fox. Gone after the Penders lawsuit.
  • Ambiguous Situation: The Encyclopedia remarks on her disappearance with rumors ranging from retirement to Nack having killed her.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: In contrast to Nack whose enmity with the Freedom Fighters grows more personal and ugly, Nic is just about a paycheck and is fine working with the good-guys so long as she's compensated. Even her debut was as a fairly neutral and non-hostile party who even saved Ray (though she expected to be paid for the deed).
  • Punny Name: Nic and Nack, or knickknack.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the reboot. Being the sister of Nack (a Sega character) might still have gotten her booted from the reboot continuity.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Nic just sort of disapears from the story. Fiona references her in a flashback and the Encyclopedia offers some theories, but in story Nic never appeared again. Flynn considered killing her off but fan reaction made him reconsider, but then the reboot hit and Nic was dropped from the story.
  • You Don't Look Like You: One proposed redesign would have changed her look completely, with her fur going from purple to pink.

     Thrash the Devil 
A Tasmanian devil who has a beef with the echidnas, due to the fact that they experimented upon the Tasmanian Devils in ancient times and ultimately caused them to devolve into feral, unintelligent beasts now known as "Devil Dogs". As such, he has butted heads with Knuckles a few times.

  • Anti-Villain: He's against Eggman like many of the cast and willing to fight for the greater good. But his main focus is on the echinas for what they did to his people. And he'll do anything to make sure they pay for their crimes.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Knuckles via an association to echidna.
  • Cruel Mercy: Choses to "spare" Knuckles rather than banishing him into another Zone with the rest of the echidna population. He views this as Laser-Guided Karma of the "eye for an eye" kind; now they're both the Last of His Kind.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Wasn't intended, but the lawsuit with Penders forced the writers to allow him to succeed in his plan to trap the echidnas (and Saffron) in parts unknown via a warp ring. Achieving his revenge and leaving Knuckles the last of his kind.
  • Enemy Mine: With Knuckles during the Knuckles The Return arc in Sonic Universe as the Freedom Fighters there are trying to stop Finitevus.
  • Last of His Kind: One of the few non-feral Tasmanian Mobians left, if not the only one left.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Can uses a sonic howl as his main power.
  • Put on a Bus: Upon pulling this trope on most of the remaining echidnas, he was last seen jumping into his warp ring during his fight with Knuckles, which deactivates and prevents Knuckles from following. He won't be returning due to the reboot erasing him from existence.
  • Token Evil Teammate: To the Downunda Freedom Fighters.

     Colin Kintober 
The Chief Justice in the Overlander society and one of its premier Generals, Colin was a major player during the Great War. He's the brother of Robotnik and the father of Snively. After the war was lost, Colin took his people into space, seeking a new planet to inhabit. With their search fruitless they returned to Mobius only to be welcomed by Dr. Eggman, his brother from another dimmension.
  • Anti-Villain: An Overlander-supremecist, but dedicated to the survival and protection of his people.
  • Cain and Abel: Zig-Zagged with Robotnik. It was Colin who first acted against his brother, sentencing him to prison for experimenting on their people and ordering his death when he escaped. Robotnik never really got the chance to pay his brother back as he'd fled the planet by the time the Doctor attained power. With Eggman though it's flipped around. Eggman killed the Colin of his dimension and ultimately lures in and kills Prime-Colin as well.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: While Colin wasn't privy to many of Robotnik's atrocities he did sentence him for his crimes against humanity and with that in mind shouldn't have been so quick to judge his brother as having reformed.
  • Killed Off for Real: Colin punches Eggman's body and is roboticized by the Doctor's touch-based robotic form. As it was unwilling, Colin becomes a lifeless statue, frozen in place. The characters In-Universe wonder if they can reverse the Overlander roboticisation and restore them to life but before they can do anything, Station Square is nuked, destroying Colin's body and preventing any possibility of restoring him.
  • Predecessor Villain: Colin's stint as an antagonist was more towards the Parents of the Freedom Fighters, having shot out Amadeaus's eye and coordinated the war-effort against the Mobians. When he returns in the present he's far less of an antagonist to Sonic and co.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: With a twist. Robotnik's roboticisation procedure turns Mobians into mindless drones but to Overlanders they become non-sentient statues unless they undergo the process willingly.
