Sol Dimension

    Blaze the Cat

Princess from the Sol Dimension and guardian of the Sol Emeralds.

  • Action Girl
  • Badass Boast: Tends to let out a few in the Archie Comics, but the one she gives to Captain Metal after he (seemingly) kills Amy, Cream, and Marine stands out as the most terrifying.
    Blaze: Let me tell you of duty, Captain Metal. My duty is to protect the Sol Emeralds and this world. You hold the last emerald I seek. (Captain Metal tries to get her to cooperate with him.) Cooperate with a filthy pirate? Oh no. You'll pay for what you did to my friends. You'll pay for keeping this world in jeopardy by stealing that gem. You'll give me my emerald or I can pry it from your charred remains. Either way you will... BURN!

  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite initially proving useless in helping Shadow and Blaze against Metal Sonic, she manages to finish him off with a well-aimed shot from her ship's cannons! However, in doing so, she destroyed the dimensional buffer and Shadow's only way home, but hey, the kid gets an A for effort at least.
  • Genius Ditz: She may not have common sense and she might be annoying, but Marine knows way more about boats and sea travel than you would expect.

New Universe Characters (Post-Genesis Wave)

    Captain Metal
Click here to see him as Capt. Metal Crab 

Formerly a Metal Sonic-series robot built by Eggman and equipped with a dimensional transporter that allowed him to hop between zones. Destroyed by Shadow and Blaze in her world, he was repaired by a kindly robot pirate/doctor and took over a crew of pirates. He seeks to harness the Sol Emeralds and use them to power his newly-discovered superweapon: the Egg O' War which is really the Wily Egg from the Worlds Collide crossover.

  • Arm Cannon: His right hand was replaced with a blunderbuss/bayonet combo. Later replaced with a large crab-like claw.
  • Appendage Assimilation: Along with a few other pieces of Captain Boltbeard after defeating him.
  • Dressed to Plunder: Hat, jacket, and peg leg.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Rivals with Captain Whisker.
  • Eye Patch Of Power: Bolted over his left eye.
  • Genius Bruiser: Noted by his crew to be a "fighter" AND "thinker"; considers METALLURGY to be a hobby!
  • Klingon Promotion: He challenged the leader of the Blackguard Pirates and defeated him, becoming their captain.
  • Refugee from Time: He's the same Metal Sonic that Shadow and Blaze destroyed in the old universe, having remained where he was when the Genesis Wave changed everything.
  • Shock and Awe: Can channel electricity through his crab claw.
  • Sword and Gun: Both in one on his right arm.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: Adopted this after being rebuilt; he spoke normally as Metal Sonic.

Future Timeline


A well-meaning time traveller from a Bad Future with a talent for psychokinesis. He means to Set Right What Once Went Wrong by outing a "traitor" in the Freedom Fighters, but he's not such a hot shot at correctly identifying said traitor. Has the added problem that traveling through time can take him to multiple timelines, begging the question of whether or not his timeline is the "real" future.

Post-Cosmic Wave, he really got a brunt of the changes. For one his ruined future is gone and now replaced by a dystopian future ruled by an ominous council who force the inhabitants to work. Here, he's just coming into his power and trying to find a way to use them when he's drafted by a Professor in helping to close errant genesis portals. It's through this, he met Sonic when he crossed timelines, apparently during the events of Sonic Colors note .

  • 0% Approval Rating: Let's just say that, given his Inspector Javert tendencies and his attempts to kill both Sonic and Rotor, he's not very popular right now. When he meets up with Sonic's team and the Arctic Freedom Fighters in the Northern Tundra, no one is very happy to see him. It's only thanks to Tails that they hear him out.
  • Aborted Arc: The trying to find the Freedom Fighter traitor arc that runs through most of the issues. By the time he finally does, the Cosmic Retcon happens which rendered most of his efforts pointless.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In the climax of the "Silver Age" arc, he uses the professor machine as well as Gold and his powers to make himself grow into giant size in order to combat the Second Devourer.
  • Berserk Button: At one point, Silver angrily remarks that he's getting sick of people saying "It's no use," around him. Unfortunately for him, his former Catchphrase has become something of a Phrase Catcher.
  • Catch and Return: Used to great effect on Enerjak on Dark Mobius (aka "Dark Knuckles").
  • How Do I Shot Web?: In the reboot, he's still learning how to control his powers. While they're useful in opening and closing Genesis Portals, he can't really control where they'll go.
  • Inspector Javert: Has accused Sonic, Rotor, and Antoine of being the traitor that will bring his world to ruin, each time with very little to go on thanks to all records having nearly wasted away since the cataclysm. He would have accused Bunnie as well if it weren't for the fact that Sonic would have beat the snot out of him. Eventually he had to go to his masters to get everything sorted out so he can finally pin-point who he's suppose to look for. Turns out it was Sally due to her brainwashing via Robotization.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: He constantly jumps to conclusions and confronts who he believes to be "traitors" with little to no evidence to go on. He does start wising up after previous failures and getting help into his investigation, even apologizing to Sonic for his previous behavior in their last meeting before the 2nd Genesis Wave hits.
  • Not So Different: From Geoffrey St. John. He even points it out in Universe 43. He strongly believed that there is a traitor in Sonics' time period that results in his Bad Future and he's determined to find out who it is, even though the people he believes are the traitor turns out to be innocent. It's similar to how Geoffrey strongly believed that Naugus would help create a better/stronger government for The Acorn Kingdom and that's why he worked under him ever since he was a kid. He learned too late that Naugus was Evil All Along and that he made a horrible choice working under him.
  • Phrase Catcher: The phrase "It's no use" gets thrown around a lot whenever Silver is there to hear it. Much to his annoyance.
    Silver: "It's no use"... I'm getting really tired of people saying that.
  • Poor Communication Kills: It takes him a while to realise that accusing people back and forth whenever he gets a lead on the supposed doom bringing Freedom Fighter does not make him a popular or trusted guy. After the Secret Freedom Fighters help him uncover the answer in a more tactful way, he still almost gets a second ass kicking from the main group after initially badly wording the discovery that Sally was the future "traitor".
    Tails: *holding a livid Sonic and Amy from attacking Silver* You better be going somewhere with this.
  • Psychic Powers: Like his video game counterpart, he uses telekinesis. He has some latent power for telepathy as well, but it apparently needs amplification in order to do much more than "give someone a headache."
  • Ripple Effect-Proof Memory: Silver's adventures in the past end with alterations to his world, and he is the only one who remembers how things were before the shift. He needs to relearn history whenever he returns home as a result since he has no memories of the new/altered events every time.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: His initial story arc before the reboot where he was tasked with trying to find the traitor in the Freedom Fighters. Due to how some details in history weren't documented however, he has a hard time trying to pinpoint who it is.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: Good with his powers, but not so much into getting facts and interacting with people. Somewhat justified considering there's barely anyone to talk to in his future, so his social skills aren't the best.
  • Spanner in the Works: In the original timeline that led the world to ruin, Eggman and Naugus succeeded only to die when the big disaster hit. By staying in the present, he's aided in stopping Naugus's plan to mentally enslave the council, allowing Nicole to come back into the city and help Team Freedom fight the Tails Doll. In 247, he saved Team Fighters from death at the hands of Mecha Sally, even disabling Sally so she can finally be rescued. note 
  • Story-Breaker Power: He's powerful enough to throw Enerjak around, not actually hurt him but still, and has a rough idea of what's going on in the current timeline. However, his desire to not excessively screw with the timeline is stopping him from just ending all the villains himself, or just staying in the timeline to help Sonic and his friends out.
  • They Would Cut You Up: His main fear about accompanying Professor Von Schlemmer to the Science Center - that, given his unique powers, he won't come back out.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: In an amazing show of Character Development, Silver offers the idea of "just ask him" regarding how the Secret Freedom Fighters should deal with getting information out of turncoat Geoffery St. John. It works.
  • Time Travel: By using a super charged warp ring, or one of the Time Stones, which utilizes a technique called "Chronos Control."
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He kept traveling around through time, saying he was looking for the traitor, because he wanted to limit any damage to the time-stream. Had he just sat down and told Sonic about the second Death Egg and Naugus becoming king, he'd have accomplished his goals much quicker and prevent the Genesis Waves altogether.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When Silver reappears again to Sonic, he now tells him that it's Antoine who is the traitor. Sonic promptly puts Silver through a wall, and drags him to the hospital for that one. Why? Antoine made a Heroic Sacrifice just before Silver showed up.

    Eggman Nega/"Dr. Nega" 
'You dare threaten me?!"

An evil scientist and mysterious villain from across Silver time who has made a lot of noise in both the future and the Sol Dimension.

In the old universe, he was a interdimensional terrorist who was in constant war with the Zone Cops.

Due to legal issues with Sega, Eggman Nega is not allowed to physically appear in the series, although he does appear in the complete encyclopedia book. This didn't stop the comic to include him some other ways, including the Zone Cops chasing him on Treasure Team Tango #1 or his robots lackeys in the Sol Dimension.

New Universe Characters (Post-Genesis Wave)

     Gold the Tenrec

A tenrec who inhabits Silver's future. She has telepathic powers.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: After being caught by the council, they fit her with a new mask that puts her back in their control and uses her powers to create a new Genesis Portal with intent on sending Silver and Von Schlemmer through it as test subjects.
  • Broken Bird: Loses her home to a cosmic monster, manages to escape to another world only to be used by the council for her powers.
  • Defector from Decadence: The only one of the council who knows how dangerous messing with the Genesis Portals is.
  • Doomed Hometown: She actually comes from another world and jumped into a portal when the Second Devourer destroyed her home.
  • I Warned You: Tells the Council this when they unwittingly unleash the Second Devourer into their world.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Her reaction upon seeing the Second Devouer, having experienced it's attack before in her world.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Tenrecs are animals only really found in Madagascar. The species was likely chosen because of how closely they resemble hedgehogs.
  • Theme Naming: Silver and Gold, get it?
  • Thinking Up Portals: It turns out she can somehow create Genesis portals.
  • Token Good Teammate: For The Council.

    Professor Von Schlemmer

A professor from Silver's time whose been tracking the Genesis Portals. After catching Silver displaying his psychic power, he drafts him into helping close the portals.

  • Absent-Minded Professor: By his own admission that he's a bit scatter-brained.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Mentions he's come to the council many time with his discoveries but they completely ignore and dismiss them.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Very blue skinned for some reason. He might not be human at all.
  • But Thou Must!: Despite Silver's protests, he practically forces Silver to come help him.
  • Canon Immigrant: Like Breezie, he comes from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Also, like Breezie, he is redesigned.
  • Chekhov's Gun: His Sonic-looking Bits, he manages to have some on him when the council send Silver and him through the portal and uses them to free Silver who proceeds to save him in return.
  • Cyborg: His skin clearly has bolts and rectangular pieces of metal on it in places, which probably suggests this. It might also explain his unusual skin color.
  • Herr Doktor: Speaks in a very thick German accent.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Silver flat out tells him people with powers like him that are taken to the Science Center are never seen again. The professor just thinks he's exaggerating, because the City Council keeps everything safe. It isn't until the council forcefully uses Gold's power to make a Genesis Portal and plans to use Silver and him as living test subjects to send through it without any sense of empathy that he finally gets the hint.
  • Pointy Ears: Has them, which make him more alien looking.

     The Council

The "benevolent" leaders of Onyx City from Silver's timeline. Very little is known about them.

  • Dirty Coward: They try to run the first chance they get when they see the Genesis Portal is too big to be controlled despite being the ones who opened it. Silver prevent this though.
  • The Faceless: Gold is the only one who takes off her mask and robe. The others never do so through their introduction arc.
  • For Science!: Their main motivation, they're trying to make strides in scientific studies and finds. However they completely ignore all caution and warning when told of them, citing them as "fairy tales". Plus more then willing to sacrifice unwilling test subjects for their experiments.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: It's hinted that they're responsible for the Genesis Portals. While not being responsible for their creation (that was due to Eggman's action at the end of the Worlds Collide crossover), they do plan on making use of them. The comic seems to hint however that they were the creators of the Time Portals in Sonic Generations and likely the makers of the Time Eater as well.
  • Lack of Empathy: All they care about are their studies and control and are more then happy to use people in their experiments without a shred of remorse.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Tried to open a Genesis Portal and send Silver and Von Schlemmer through it. It winds up growing being their control and unleashing a monster that turns them into stone.
  • Never My Fault: Von Schlemmer calls them out on their actions when their lack of caution puts their world in peril. One of they just tries to insult him in response.
  • Obviously Evil: The only people who trust them are those too broken or too naive to believe otherwise.
  • Omniscient Council of Vagueness
  • Taken for Granite: The first victims of the Second Devourer's stone powers.
  • Too Dumb to Live: As stated they don't bother to listen to warnings on how dangerous some of their experiments could be, deeming whatever sacrifice is necessary. Half the time, not even knowing what they're doing. Not surprisingly this ultimately comes back to bite them in the butt when they unleash a monster right into their world.
  • Verbal Tic: "Yes.". Subverted when they see the Second Devourer coming through the portal to which one of them utters a "No!".
  • You Are Number 6: The individual members are identified by the number of dots on their masks.

     Second Devourer

An huge monster like being that Gold remembers from her old world when it attack it. It winds up in Silver's future when it's unwittingly unleashed through the Genesis Portals by the council.

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A very large being.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A massive monster that seems to be made of purple fire with a very demon like appearance.
  • Foreshadowing: If this is indeed the same being from the games, this could very well be the Time Eater before he was converted. The appearance of the Time Gates before he shows up seems to lead credence to this.
  • Planet Eater: It's introduction box even gives it the subtitle "Consumer of Worlds".
  • Taken for Granite: Whatever it touches turns to stone.

Old Universe Characters (Pre-Genesis Wave)

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

No Zone

    Zonic the Zone Cop 
Star officer of the Zone Cop Corps, Zonic is a parallel dimension counterpart to Sonic, dedicated to keeping the multiverse in order.
  • Because Destiny Says So: His reason for throwing Sonic into interdimensional conflicts, and why he hasn't taken care of Eggman.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Sworn to keep balance between Zones. As a result, he tends to avert Sonic's Screw Destiny tendencies. But at least he usually has good humor about it.
  • Did You Think I Can't Feel?: Shown after Sonic calls him out for callously throwing him into a scenario where he had to fight an alternate version of his father. Zonic shows he sympathizes with Sonic by revealing they're both alternate versions of one another, thus proving he knew what Sonic's been through.
  • Gravity Screw: Zonic is from a zone perpendicular to all others, resulting him to appear to be standing sideways. Invariably, all of his appearances tend to involve this.
  • Guardian of the Multiverse: Tasked with keeping the peace between multiple realities. Interestingly enough, he says it's Sonic's job to do this, and he has a bad habit of getting Sonic to do his job for him.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit, although he is a Dan Slott creation.

    Zone Cop Corps 
  • Bizarro Universe: Run by alternate versions of the main characters. The main warden is actually an alternate of Robotnik
  • Corrupt Cop: Warden Zobotnik, who has interesting ideas about how to rehabilitate criminals.
  • Gravity Screw
  • Great Offscreen War: against "Dr. Nega," keeping them occupied in the later years of their existence.
  • Guardians of the Multiverse
  • Hellhole Prison: Judging by all the abuse heaped on Scourge by inmates and prison guards alike in the Zone Jail.
  • Power Limiter: Put Control Collars on inter-dimensional criminals in order to make them less dangerous.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit.
  • Theme Naming: As with Zonic, each Zone Cop's name is the same as their Mobius Prime counterpart, just with a "Z" at the beginning.note 

    Horizont-Al and Verti-Cal 
Demi-gods of their own world. They tend to horse around and have fun, but eventually they started fighting each other with horrible super weapons.
  • Darker and Edgier: They started as Silver Age-styled wacky characters, who were annoying but far from threatening. The next time they appeared in person, events during the intervening time had made them unrecognizable.
  • Only Friend: To Scourge during his time in the Zone Corp Prison before the Destructix come to retrieve him, though they do so as hope to a means to busting out themselves. Scourge leaves them hanging during his escape however.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: what their evil mech forms have become in their last appearance, held in check by Zone Cop technology.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Thanks to the destruction of the Ultimate Annihilator, they became fearsome creatures that wanted to kill each other, going so far as to capture Sonic and Tails and turn them against each other.


    Dr. Ivo Kintobor
The Moebius counterpart to Dr. Robotnik.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: His original appearance had him look just like the original Robotnik, his second was much thinner, and then finally, he was portrayed with his current, more Eggman-like appearance.
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted as he is the Good version of Robotnik and Eggman. Robotnik was a scientist while Kintober is a medical doctor. Robotnik and Eggman both were aggressors, Kintober's a pacifist and only acts when the Suppression Squad acts first. A small detail even has him obsessively double checking Sonic's gear and Buns's suit contrasting with the sloppiness that Eggman was applying to everything as he was breaking down at the time.
  • Friend to All Living Things
  • Kindly Vet
  • Mythology Gag: His current appearance is based on Eggman's classic appearance from the Genesis-era games.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: A lot like his Mobius Prime counterpart. He's a vet, but he's also made powered armor, "sweep-bots", and a method for traveling between dimensions.
  • Opaque Lenses: Much like Eggman's Scary Shiny Glasses.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit.

    Overseer O'Nux 
  • All There in the Manual: His "Moebian" name is only stated in the Complete Sonic Encyclopedia.
  • The Cameo: When Scourge returns and Moebius is explored a little more, O'Nux has a brief appearance being defeated in Miles's recount of how Scourge took over.
  • Fighting Irish: Averted. He's actually a pacifist.
  • Good All Along: While he's the mirror world counterpart of Knuckles he only inverts Knuckles hostility rather than his morality. Though he helped Scourge out in his debut, he's revealed to be a nice enough guy just trying to save his underwater city, even helping Sonic in the end.
  • Martial Pacifist: He's against violence, but he was still capable of throwing down with his counterpart.
  • Nice Hat: His beret.
  • Not So Different: He still trusted Evil Sonic. I guess some things are multiversal constants.
  • Put on a Bus: Gone after the Penders lawsuit.
  • Underwater City: Atlantinopolis, to contrast with Angel Island.

Bunnie Rabbot's Moebius counterpart. Buns only showed up briefly to lay a beating on Sonic (having been mistaken as Anti-Sonic) for cheating on her. Shortly after Buns developed a degenerative disease called N.I.D.S. at the base of her spine and Scourge dropped her from the team. Dr. Kintober found her and gave her the Omega Caring unit (E-123 Omega's counterpart), a suit of power armor that suppresses the disease and gives her combat abilities. As such Buns acts as the Doctor's main bodyguard.
  • Anti-Hero: Buns was a rabble-rouser and thug but as a hero she's competent and when she teamed up with Amy and Sonic she did her best to assist and protect them. She's not overly fond of the Omega Unit's lack of lethal weaponry but she respects the Doctor's decision.
  • Evil Counterpart: Played With
    • Buns spends most of her time as a good guy and never meets Bunnie much less fight her. However, much like O'Nux, Buns inverts several of Bunnie's other traits. Bunnie hates Robotnik for what he did to her, Buns is loyal to Kintober because of what he did for her; Bunnie is afraid of hurting her friends, Buns is happy to because they abandoned her.
    • The Omega Caring Unit inverts this as Omega's counterpart. Omega is fully sentient and rebels against Eggman, the Caring Unit is built non-sentient and its pilot is loyal to Kintober. Omega is proud of his destructive capability, Buns isn't happy with the Caring Unit's lack of lethal weapons. Their names have opposite meanings: e-123 Omega was named Omega to signify him as the most powerful and final of the e-123 series, the Caring Unit was named Omega to signify it as a last resort.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After her team shunned her for her sickness, Dr. Kintober took her in and she pledged her loyalty to him.
  • Undying Loyalty: Though Miles is doubtful, Buns is very grateful for Dr. Kintober's help and his dedication to finding a cure. As such she does her best to try and pay him back as his loyal guardian.

How well does it match the trope?
