Voiced by: Momoko Ishikawa (Japanese)

The main "antagonist" of her debut short. A mischievous ghost that lives in a mansion with two ghost photographers. She has a hobby of collecting photographs of the terrified expressions of anyone who enters the mansion.

  • Affably Evil: Subverted in that she's not evil, just mischievous. But she is rather friendly.
  • Big Bad: Played with. She's only considered the main antagonist by being the driving force behind the Ghost Photographers' actions and for no other reason. Otherwise, the three of them barely qualify as villains and their actions are juvenile at best.
  • Collector of the Strange: Her aforementioned hobby of collecting photographs of the terrified expressions of anyone who enters the mansion.
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Very much so.
  • Dude Magnet: What else can you call someone who's willing to have two ghosts scare the crap out of people and photograph their terrified expressions just to get a kiss from her?
  • Flight: Thanks to being a ghost and all.
  • Harmless Villain: She's not evil in the slightest.
  • Hidden Depths: Apparently, she's a fan of horror movies as her room is littered with movie posters. Kinda makes sense considering she's a ghost.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: Her outfit reveals her shoulders.
  • Love at First Sight: With Sonic due to his Werehog form. Lucky Amy wasn't there...
  • Non-Action Big Bad: She mostly stays in her room admiring her photo collection while the other two do the work. She only takes action near the end of the short where she disguises herself as Chip.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She's a female ghost dressed in pink.
  • Voice Grunting: Like with other characters in the short.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Uses this to disguise herself as Chip, though she seems incapable of hiding some of her traits such as her voice and her beauty mark.

    Su and Uh 
Voiced by: Ryan Drees (Su, English), Kevin Glenz (Uh, English)

Two ghost photographers who live with Lah. They take photos of the terrified expressions of those who enter the mansion, making it a contest between them as they constantly attempt to win Lah's affections.

  • Affably Evil: Though evil would be considered a stretch as they only do what they do to win Lah's affections.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: If they hadn't stopped to argue over who'd take the photo of Sonic, they would have won.
  • The Cameo: The two make an appearance in the Xbox 360/PS3 versions of Sonic Unleashed in the missions "Tower Terror" and "Fright Fight".
  • Co-Dragons: To Lah.
  • Combat Pragmatist: They pretty much beat Sonic simply by staying invisible the entire fight.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: When the two start working together, they flat-out mop the floor with Sonic in their fight.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: This is pretty much the only thing you can call their fight with Sonic. Thanks to their invisibility and intangibility powers, Sonic can't land a single hit on them and they pretty much humiliate the poor hedgehog.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The two tried to kill Sonic just because he accidentally made a fool of them when he transformed into the Werehog, causing them to take photos of their own terrified expressions.
  • Fangs Are Evil: In their regular and Fusion Dance forms. But again, evil is a rather relative term.
  • Fat and Skinny: Su is fat with a bowtie, while Uh is skinny with a bandana.
  • Fat Bastard: Su.
  • Flight: The two of them can fly.
  • Fusion Dance: They can fuse to form a large, green minotaur-like ghost.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Not only do they constantly attempt to outdo each other, but they won't take kindly to whoever else wins Lah's affections. So when Sonic accidentally makes a fool of them, It's Personal. Taken most literally with Uh as he has actual green eyes and even more literally with their Fusion Dance form.
  • Intangible Man: Being ghosts and all.
  • I Shall Taunt You: When Sonic tries taking pictures of them in order to find them, the picture show them posing casually, yawning, and sticking their tongue out at Sonic.
  • Invisibility: Another "comes with the territory" trope.
  • Laughably Evil: They're a hilarious pair of ghosts... Until they decide to get serious.
  • Lean and Mean: Uh.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villains: See above.
  • Our Minotaurs Are Different: Baker, their Fusion Dance form.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Their fight with Sonic in a nutshell.
  • Sickly Green Glow: Baker, their Fusion Dance form.
  • Smug Smiler: This is Su's default expression.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Su.
  • Technicolor Fire: Their Fusion Dance form seems to glow with green flames.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Their bull form has huge, beefy arms and a large chest. Somehow, they're able to stand up despite having legs that look like sticks.
  • Undying Loyalty: The two will do anything for Lah, even if they don't like doing it. The two went ahead and kidnapped Chip on her orders despite looking visibly uncomfortable doing it.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Seems to be the basis of their relationship. They constantly attempt to outdo each other, and don't get along very well. But as Sonic nearly learns the hard way, if they share a common goal, they are quite capable of working together.
  • Voice Grunting: Like with most characters.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Su, used in an attempt to scare Chip.

Click here to see Nicky as Sonic 

A ten year old boy who lives in Hedgehog Town. He's the main character of the manga, with the ability to turn into Sonic the Hedgehog whenever Sonic is needed. However, he is unaware of his alter-ego.

  • Alternate Identity Amnesia: When Nicky transforms into Sonic, and then transforms back, he doesn't remember what happened.
  • The Cameo: After not appearing in anything for almost thirty years, concept art of him and a few other characters from the manga appeared in Sonic Origins.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Curious example. Depending on the illustrator, he either wears a shirt or sweater, or he only wears glasses and boots.
  • Kid Hero: Nicky is 10 and Sonic is around 16, and the duo are the main heroes of the manga.
  • Love Triangle: Is in one... with himself. Amy loves Sonic despite Nicky being her boyfriend, and both don't know that Sonic is Nicky's alter ego.
  • Nervous Wreck: Despite Nicky's aspirations to be a hero, he's a coward that doesn't like taking action, which causes him to be an easy target for characters like Eggman and Anton.
  • Official Couple: Nicky is in a relationship with the story's version of Amy Rose. Along with that he's in a Love Triangle with himself, as Amy loves Sonic as well.
  • Specs of Awesome: Nicky wears glasses, and while Sonic doesn't, he's able to get the job done.
  • Spell My Name with an S: In Japanese, his name is spelt as "Nikki" (ニッキ). Whether it's spelt as Nikki or Nicky in English is up to you.
  • Split Personality: Sonic here serves as another identity to Nicky.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Tania's Red Oni.
