Amy Rose
"They don't call me "Aim" for nothing!"
A pink anthropomorphic hedgehog and member of the Freedom Fighters. She swiftly matured as the comic went on and became one of the most valuable members of the Freedom Fighters, especially due to her expert marksmanship with her crossbow (which she created herself) or hand-drawn bow.

  • Action Girl
  • Adaptational Badass: Until certain later incarnations (and even then, probably still) she was by far the most competent and dangerous incarnation of Amy Rose to have been depicted.
  • Ascended Fangirl: She's a fangirl of Sonic with a crush on him but ended up joining the Freedom Fighters for her own safety.
  • Automatic Crossbows: Her weapon of choice that she built herself.
  • Blue Oni: To Sonic's and Shortfuse's red.
  • Combat Pragmatist
  • Foil: To Sonic.
  • Friendly Sniper
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: When she can't use her crossbow she will fight with her fists.
  • Heroic BSoD: Has been suffering one since the Kane arc because of finding out about Sonic's questionable decisions and the actions of the Neo Metallix posing as Sonic which she thinks was Sonic.
  • Human Shield: Used as one by Brutus but didn't work because Sonic had transformed into Super Sonic.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: In issue #44, Badniks Bridge Part 2, Amy fires an arrow from a moving plane at a tiny little button that destroys an entire bridge.
  • Locked into Strangeness: According to one comic, however it's most likely non-canon due to the continuity errors it causes.
  • Long-Range Fighter
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With Sonic.
  • Positive Discrimination
  • The Gadfly: Her "crush" is implied to just be her teasing Sonic because she likes to see him flustered.
  • The Lancer
  • The Leader: She is a Type II leader when she leads the freedom fighters.
  • Number Two: Whenever Sonic is unable to lead the freedom fighters, Amy takes comand.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: To Tekno's Girly Girl.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: Robotnik tries to turn her into a badnik in issue 22, but thankfully Sonic frees her before the process is completed, however Brutus is able to turn her into a badnik in the story Revolution thankfully Sonic frees her again.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Never gains the raw power of Sonic or Knuckles, but her smarts and ranged combat abilities allow her to be almost as effective under the right conditions.
  • Weapon of Choice: Useally a crossbow, sometimes a bow.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gives one to Shortfuse when he nearly lets Johnny die and to Sonic when he is being a jerk to Porker when he quits the freedom fighters.
  • Women Are Wiser: Began inverted due to her more bubbly and childish attitude, deliberately played straight in later stories however (see above).
  • Xenafication

Kintobor Computer self-aware computer program that has the brainwaves of Doctor Kintobor.

Sonic: Change reality any way you like, Robotnik! Whatever you do I'll still fight you, and somehow I'll win! Because no matter how ridiculous the situation, I'll never give up, Robotnik! I'll never give up!

Sonic the Hedgehog is the former leader of the Freedom Fighters based out of the Emerald Hill Zone and was commonly regarded as the hero of Mobius. Born with the power to run at unnatural speeds Sonic was involved in an experiment which allowed him to break the sound barrier, resulting in a sonic boom that turned him blue. Working with Doctor Kintobor to rid the planet of all evil, Sonic witnessed the good Doctor's transformation into his long-time nemesis Doctor Ivo Robotnik. He is probably most famous on Mobius for opposing Robotnik on countless occasions, and later deposing of the tyrant during the final victory in the Metropolis Zone. For undercover work, he has often disguised himself under the alias of Bob Beaky to avoid revealing his true identity. Due to extreme exposure to high levels of Chaos energy Sonic has developed a transformation into an alter-ego known as Super Sonic. This malevolent demonic being is unleashed in times of great stress or if he is overexposed to additional Chaos energy. He is now a outcast feared and hated by all of Mobius (sans Tails).

  • Ambiguous Disorder: According to Nigel Kitching, Sonic has an inability to properly express his feelings (see: Porker Lewis calling it quits). Back when he was all brown and prickly, he was apparently withdrawn enough to rely on a human for social comfort, and aside from that only seemed to care about running.
  • Big Brother Bully: To Tails.
  • Big Eater
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While he is a hero worshiped by all of Mobius as a fearless symbol of hope, he is actually a self-centered, immature Jerkass. This comes back to bite him in the ass in Sonic the Comic – Online!, where the sheep's clothing gets flung off and he ends up becoming a fugitive. Once the public knew about some of his more questionable decisions that he made to try and save Mobius, all the Jerkass tendencies that people were willing to ignore made it easy for Grimer to convince the public that he was a villain.
  • Blood Knight: He gets bored and restless when there's no new challenge or threat, and will often deliberately go seeking one out.
  • Blow You Away: By running at full speed around an enemy, he can form a Sonic Cyclone that rips the enemy to shreds through its slipstream. A variation of this technique is a "cocoon of speed", which he uses to contain bombs and missiles and protect outside forces from the blast radius.
  • Break the Haughty: For Sonic, the culmination of the Kane arc was initially expected to be a Heroic BSoD, but then followed up with Despair Event Horizon and then Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds combined with What the Hell, Hero?.
  • Broken Pedestal: Following the media smear campaign and everything else in Sonic the Comic – Online!, Sonic has became this to the remaining Freedom Fighters and Mobius. Let's just say that, when you know the Sonicverse as a whole, it's pretty jarring to see even Amy hating Sonic; only Tails still believes in him.
  • Clear My Name: Since the Kane arc has completely destroyed his reputation and made him a fugitive, Sonic has been Walking the Earth trying to find a way to do this. Issue 275 finally succeeds in doing so, with Tails recording Sonic helping them overthrow the Drakon Empire and giving the footage to Kane in exchange for proof of Sonic's innocence.
  • Deal with the Devil: He goes to the Drakon Empire to try and save Mobius from Dr. Zachary and Shadow.
  • Determinator
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: His Bob Beaky disguise is a penguin.
  • Force Field: By vibrating his molecules at super-speed, Sonic can create a forcefield.
  • Full-Body Disguise: Sonic's Bob Beaky disguise (a green ushanka and duffel coat, yellow-checked scarf, grey boots and mittens, wraparound shades, and false beak) which completely conceals Sonic's body allowing him to travel incognito or infiltrate a public area.
    • However The Kane Broadcasting Company has revealed to Mobius that Sonic The Hedgehog is Bob Beaky.
  • Good Is Not Nice
  • Heroic Resolve: So long as something existed to menace Mobius, Sonic would never give up. Best exemplified by the speech he gives to Robotnik when the latter has absorbed the power of the Chaos emeralds to attain reality warping powers, while they're fighting through a series of increasingly bizarre scenarios.
    • In one story, Sonic fights a robot that can predict his every move and counteract it. So Sonic gives up. Since the robot was programmed to believe that this circumstance would never happen, it malfunctions and blows up, which is exactly what Sonic intended.
  • The Hero: Hero of Mobius
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: As of Sonic the Comic Online, this trope has become Sonic's downfall - the Kane Broadcasting Company uses their footage to convince the population of Mobius that Sonic is actually a villain who might be worse than Robotnik, and the worst part of it is, the footage they have to back up their claims, while very one-sided, is still genuine. Sonic's base can spy on every zone in the world, Sonic himself is a bit of a dick, and his super form is a monster who's already caused havoc before. Not to mention the fact that he created Robotnik... This smear campaign worked so well in conjunction with the Big Bad's evil scheme that Sonic is now a complete outcast, loathed and feared worldwide; even the Freedom Fighters (sans Tails) no longer trust him. That said he still has some fans; Cream the Rabbit and some of the Drakons have been fans of his since he won his trial by combat (with help from Tails and a door).
    • Finally resolved in Issue 275. After helping Tails finally put an end to the war with Robotnik, as well as helping defeat the Drakon Empire once and for all, Tails gives Kane footage of the battle in exchange for proof that Sonic has been innocent all along. Footage of Sonic fighting the Drakons and the Neo Metallix that set him up is subsequently broadcasted on televisions everyone, restoring Sonic's reputation.
  • High-Altitude Interrogation: In Sonic the Comic Online, he uses this on Grouchio one of the Marxio Bros. by dangling him over a vat of Mega Mack.
  • Homeless Hero: In Sonic the Comic – Online! after becoming an outcast, Sonic is now homeless in issue 262 story Hog Hunt a park-keeper wakes Bob Beaky/Sonic sleeping on a bench in Grace Falls Memorial Park.
  • Hulking Out: Whenever Sonic became stressed or extremely angry he transforms into Super Sonic.
  • Insufferable Genius: Boasts about his skills but he is as skilled as he says.
  • Jerkass: He is somewhat bossy, cocky, immature and arrogant, and characters regularly referred to his "strange sense of humour" - in Attack on the Death Egg, Sonic deliberately let Tails think he was dead for a laugh. Sonic's attitude frequently made cruel jokes at the expense of Tails, who he often refers to as "pixel brain".
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: That said, he genuinely cares about his friends and has shown concern over them coming to serious harm, and takes the protection of Mobius very seriously.
  • The Leader: He is a mix of Type III and Type IV.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Sonic's natural tendency is to just rush straight into battle without thinking, and rely on sheer force to plow through anything in his way. This often causes him to be overpowered by stronger enemies, or overwhelmed by sheer numbers. Best seen in this quote where Sonic leaps out of a plane to take on hundreds of robots:
    Tails: But Sonic, shouldn't we have some kind of plan?
    Sonic: I have a plan. [leaps out of plane] I plan to win!
  • Locked into Strangeness: He turned blue due to an accident.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He has this expression on his face at the end of part 2 of the story Running Wild, when he thinks Super Sonic has killed the Freedom Fighters.
  • Nice Hat: Sonic's Bob Beaky disguise's green ushanka hat.
  • Only Sane Man: Sonic, whenever he's in the Special Zone and how he feels while in Shanazar.
  • Passing the Torch: Sonic passes the responsibility of being hero of Mobius to Tails, while he tries to clear his name.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: He turns yellow when he goes Super Sonic.
  • Red Oni: To Amy's blue.
  • Sealed Inside A Sonic Shaped Can: He is the can which Super Sonic is sealed in but whenever Sonic became stressed or extremely angry he transforms into Super Sonic.
  • Smug Super
  • Super Drowning Skills: Played straight then subverted. Handwaved by Sonic as him having taken swimming lessons.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: His super form is this.
  • 10-Minute Retirement: Briefly leaves the Freedom Fighters upon the death of Johnny Lightfoot, but returns with a more focused demeanor.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bean burgers.
  • Trapped in Another World: He is trapped in the Special Zone for about fifteen issues.
  • Trash Talk: He uses it on his foes.
  • Un-person: In Silver's time in Sonic the Comic – Online! this happens to Sonic who is replaced in the history books by Tails.
  • Vibro Weapon: The W Spin Attack.
  • Walking the Earth: After the Kane arc.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Averted: Sonic's natural tendency is to just plow through his enemies with shear force and speed, but when faced with an enemy who this doesn't work against he tends to get more tactical and use his powers more creatively (grabbing hold of them and super-vibrating himself, creating cyclones with his speed, angling his attacks so that his momentum is transferred to the enemy, or timing the attack to strike at the point where the enemy is most vulnerable).

Porker Lewis panicky former Freedom Fighter. Based on the "Picky" captive from the original games.

  • Ascended Extra: Again like Johnny.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His real name is Oscar the Pig, a native of the Special Zone who unwittingly became involved with a Mafia boss named Hammerhead who used Porker's research to develop weapons. When he destroyed his research and sabotaged the project, Hammerhead had him framed, forcing him to flee to Mobius, where he eventually joined up with Sonic.
  • Full-Name Basis
  • Heroic BSoD: After being stranded on the Miracle Planet for a month, Porker Lewis has this and quits the Freedom Fighters.
  • Non-Action Guy: Never a fighter, Porker loses his nerve entirely after being captured by the Metallixes, and he retires from the Freedom Fighters. Sonic never properly forgives him. Of course, this doesn't stop him from helping his old pals a few times afterwards.
  • Shout-Out: His name is a reference to the sitcom Parker Lewis Can't Lose.
  • The Smart Guy
  • Transplant: After his encounter with Metallix, Porker quits the Freedom Fighters and relocates to the Floating Island to study the ancient echidna civilisation and becomes an important supporting character for Knuckles as much as he is for Sonic.
  • Trapped in Another World: He is trapped in Mobius because of the destruction of the Special Zone.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: Robotnik turns him into a badnik in issue 1, but thankfully Sonic frees him.

Johnny Lightfoot late member Freedom Fighters. Based on the "Pocky" captive from the original games. Died fighting Chaos.

Tekno the Canary's best friend, and an occasional member of the Five-Man Band. A former member of Freedom Fighters.

    Chaotix Crew 
Tropes for the Chaotix Crew as a whole:

The Omni-viewer Omni-Viewer (or Omni, as he is commonly known) is a recurring character in Sonic the Comic. Although not entirely clear what Omni is, he often acts as a computer program. He has many other abilities, however, such as the power to transport people through time and space.

  • The Mentor
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He was sealed in the Black Asteroid.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: He is the can, he and Sonic devised a plan to banish Super to another dimension. At the last second, with Super smashed into Omni's space, he changed his mind, not wishing to burden anybody else with Super Sonic. Omni tried to freeze time, making himself an eternal prison, but only managed to slow time to a crawl. The others moved Omni to the Black Asteroid, hoping to contain Super Sonic when he eventually broke free from Omni.
  • Sentient Phlebotinum
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Forced by Robotnik to get rid of Sonic and friends, however Robotnik didn't say how so he sends them only six months in future, but Robotnik in that six months had taken over Mobius.

Vector the Crocodile leader of the Chaotix Crew and the only member of the team who seems to do more than just fight. He is quite intellectual and a capable scientist and detective. He is usually the one who handles Chaotix's PR issues and liasons with the New Tek City police.

  • The Face: He is usually the one who handles Chaotix's PR issues and liasons with the New Tek City police.
  • Genius Bruiser: He is balanced in both brawn and brains. His physical strength is significant and he tends to fight using his tail and teeth. He also possesses keen computation and detective skills.
  • The Leader: Of the Chaotix Crew.
  • Mad Scientist: He is a capable scientist.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist
  • The Smart Guy: While he gets physical as often as his team-mates, Vector's main role is the crew's field-leader, strategist and technical expert.

Mighty the Armadillo strongest member of the Chaotix Crew. He can be rather hot-tempered at times and is often arguing with teammate Espio, but he is a loyal friend and won't turn his back on a teammate (except maybe Charmy).

Espio the Chameleon member of the Chaotix Crew. He usually has a cool head but can sometimes be easily provoked (especially if Charmy does the provoking).

Charmy Bee member of the Chaotix Crew and he is a prince of The Hive, being the son of the Queen Bee.

    The Ultimax Ultimax are a team of heroes, formed in the wake of The Battle For Mobius. They are available as special back-up for the police, have a vast amount of technology at their disposal and a multi-million Ring sponsorship. Their biggest problem however, is their ineptness and lack of co-ordination when in a combat situation. Needless to say, Tails was slightly stunned as he watched them struggle against the Green Gremlin. Upon the Gremlin's defeat, thanks to Tails, the Ultimax were faced with a request from Tails to form a mutually beneficial alliance. While Dexter was unsure and rather dismissive at first, his opinion was swayed by a few nudges from his teammates.

Dexter 'Codex' Bagstille Ultimax's somewhat aloof leader and multimillionaire CEO of Macrosoft. Wants to do his part to help those in need, but wants to do it his own way. A parody of Bill Gates. He sees Tails as something of a mascot.

  • Evil Is Not a Toy: In recent issues, he has Death Trap capture Sonic with the intent to weaponize Super Sonic and put an end to Robotnik once and for all, using a special collar to control him and drain his power if necessary; Sonic even points out how foolish it is for him to believe he can actually control Super Sonic where everyone else has failed, but Dexter dismisses him. Needless to say, Super soon turns on Dexter, drains the Omni-Viewer's power, and goes on a rampage, draining the Grey Chaos Emerald before being stopped, and Dexter is ultimately put on trial and convicted for his stupidity.
  • Expy Of Bill Gates.
  • Fiction 500: He is a multimillionaire have made millions from his company Macrosoft.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Becomes increasingly irritated at being in Tails' shadow. This leads him to hire Deathtrap to capture Sonic and force him to turn super in a doomed from the start attempt to control him, most likely kicking off the apocalypse.
  • The Leader: Of Ultimax, however Tails is the unoffical leader of The Ultimax
  • The Smart Guy

Theodore Abram Spartacus Abram Spartacus (or Theo for short) is a turtle and one of the members of The Ultimax. His role in the trio is as the muscle, introducing himself as the one who is there to "smash stuff". Theo is usually very well-dressed, wearing a brown suit and scholarly spectacles. When called into combat, however, the turtle only wears shoes and sports a muscly physique. Theo is practically blind when he isn't wearing glasses or contact lenses, making unable to identify a villain directly in front of him. He also seems to have a thing for Amy Rose, as it was Tails' promise of contact with her that convinced him to join forces with the Freedom Fighters.

Holly 'Jumpinjax' Thumpfoot hare, and the team's only female member. Hailing from the Hill Top Zone and notably hyperactive, Holly is something of a valley girl, and a fangirl, if her reaction to meeting Tails is anything to go by. She loves the idea of being a Freedom Fighter and is one of the first to try and convince Dexter to accept Tails' offer.

    Other Heros 

Knuckles The Echidna red-furred echidna who lives on the mysterious Floating Island. He is the Guardian of the island, charged with protecting the seven Chaos Emeralds. His dreadlocks allow him to glide for short periods and his spike-knuckled fists can punch through solid rock. Since he has lived most of his life alone, Knuckles can be rather gullible sometimes, though over the course of Sonic the Comic, he has actually become less trusting when it comes to strangers.

  • Accidental Misnaming: When he goes to the Nameless Zone with Tails, they think that Sonic is Tails' sidekick rather than the other way around and assume Knuckles must be Sonic. He plays along with it after a while, just because he enjoys the fact that there's one place on Mobius that doesn't hero-worship Sonic.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: His white fur-marking is changed to a metal necklace and his purple eyes are blue.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk
  • Genius Bruiser: While not as smart as Porker or Tekno, he is able to understand and use advance echidna technology.
  • Icy Blue Eyes
  • Immortality Inducer: The Guardian Emerald when Knuckles dies, it would always resurrect him, giving him Resurrective Immortality, but when the Floating Island's systems fell into disrepair most of Knuckles's memories were lost, as such he does not know the fate of his race and for it to work a being from the spiritual plane must be willing to exist in the mortal realm, unfortunately for the Echidnas, and perhaps all of Mobius, the only willing candidate was Vichama, the God of Death.
  • I Work Alone: He's lived alone for so long that he is happiest by himself, and is generally not pleased by the numerous invaders and refugees who turn up on his island.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Arguably an even straighter example than Sonic.
  • Out of Continues: In order to stop Vichama, the God of Death from trying to kill everyone, Knuckles destroys his Immortality Inducer The Guardian Emerald which makes Knuckles' current life his last life.
  • The Plan: Dr. Zachary's escape in 'Prisoner' was planned by him in an attempt to find out the location of his lost race. If the Omnicidal Maniac didn't escape no one would complain.
  • Really 8000 Years Old
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Typically between him and Sonic. Though they gain respect for one another and can work together effectively, they remain rivals and never quite become friends.
  • Thoroughly Mistaken Identity: The people of Nameless Zone think he is Sonic.
  • Time Abyss

Tikal the Echidna Echidna from the ancient past who used her magic to summon Sonic to her time. When he appeared, she asked him if there were any echidnas left, but Sonic couldn't bring himself to tell her that other than Knuckles and Doctor Zachary, there were no other echidnas.

She later reappeared in Sonic the Comic Online. She first appeared when Sonic got a surge of Chaos Energy letting Tikal sustain her own form. It was later revealed that her spirit resided in his body when he was submerged in Chaos. Later it was also revealed that when Chaos was trapped, Tikal was trapped with him, leading her to over 8,000 years of fear and torture.

Ebony cat who lives in the Metropolis Zone. She possesses many magical abilities,Powers her travels have seen her become friends with a pacifist Super Sonic, Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna and Porker Lewis but her best friend is Pyjamas, a psychic resident of The Neighbourhood.

Blaze the Cat mysterious cat from another world.

Silver the Hedgehog
"I'm tired of fighting. If we can end this, I say let's end it. Just tell me what to do."
A psychic hedgehog and G.U.N. agent from an apocalyptic future.

  • Artificial Intelligence: Silver has A.G. which is Silver the Hedgehog's wristbound computer. The speaking device is able to aid navigation, can monitor heart rate and can easily be programmed with intelligence vital to completing a mission.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He is a Tails fanboy and as a G.U.N. agent, he can now meet his Idol and be hero like him.
  • Bad Future: He comes from world ravaged by Super Sonic, whom the people know as Iblis.
  • Fanboy: He is a Tails fanboy having seen the footage of Tails' adventures, read the Tails' letters to the Nameless Zone and he has every issue of "Tales Of Tails".
  • Hero-Worshipper: He hero worships Tails, having grown up hearing about Tails' adventures, however some of what he belives are Tails' adventures are actully Sonic's adventures, this is because in Silver's future Sonic has been Un-Personed.
  • Mind over Matter: Can use telekinesis to lift up rocks and deconstuct missiles.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: His mission given to him by Commander Steele is to defeat Iblis/Super Sonic 70 years into the past when he was relatively weak

Shadow II digital recreation of Shadow the Hedgehog, who was apparently set up by Kintobor when he gave Mobius the internet.


How well does it match the trope?
