Barricade Town[2] is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a town surrounded by large walls and serves as a distribution hub for Wispons.[3]

Description

Barricade Town is a small town with various quant buildings. As the name implies, the town is surrounded on all sides by extremely tall and sturdy walls which not even a Death Egg Robot sentinel can bring down. The only entrance into the town is through the large front gates.

History

The Eggman War

Death Egg Robot sentinels and Egg Pawns

Death Egg Robot sentinels and Egg Pawns stalking Barricade Town, from Sonic the Hedgehog #3.

Shortly before the Eggman War ended, Barricade Town was saved from Dr. Eggman's forces by the mercenaries Rough the Skunk and Tumble the Skunk, who showed up and managed to drive Eggman's forces back. Rough and Tumble were subsequently let into Barricade Town when they promised to help the town improve their defenses. However, they instead took the town's Wispons and Wisps for themselves and took the townspeople prisoners within their own town. Since Badniks were roaming outside Barricade Town's walls as well, the townspeople were unable to escape their home, leaving Rough and Tumble to do whatever they wanted.[3]

Celebration

When Barricade Town's Wispon shipments dried up, Knuckles the Echidna went to investigate the town. While there, he took care of the Badnik horde that had surrounded Barricade Town. After Knuckles defeated a Death Egg Robot sentinel, Sonic the Hedgehog showed up to check up on him, as er the request of Amy Rose. After Knuckles explained to Sonic why he was here, the two of them entered Barricade Town against the gatekeeper's wishes. There, they found the townspeople in a state of panic. Immediately after, the gatekeeper met up with Sonic and Knuckles and explained to them their town's situation. Deciding to put an end to Rough and Tumble's cruel reign, Sonic and Knuckles went to the town's suppy depot-turned-fortress and confronted the mercenaries. With the aid of the Wisps Rough and Tumble had hoarded, Sonic and Knuckles defeated the skunk mercenaries. Afterward, Rough and Tumble were hauled off to jail while Sonic and Knuckles celebrated their victory with the townspeople and the Wisps.[3]

Battle For Angel Island

Dr. Starline soon visited Barricade Town through the use of the Warp Topaz and used it to break Rough and Tumble out of jail.[4]

The Last Minute

Metal Virus Frequency Test

Eggman and Starline overlook the infected villagers of Barricade Town, from Sonic the Hedgehog #23.

Barricade Town soon became overrun with Zombots after several of its villagers became infected by the Metal Virus. Later on, Dr. Eggman and Dr. Starline came by the village to test out different radio frequencies on the Zombots so that Eggman could regain control of them again. Sonic arrived on the scene and demanded that Eggman reverse the effects of the Metal Virus infection but the latter stated that he could not stop it even if he wanted to. Sonic and Eggman then battled until the both of them fell to the ground of the village. Starline managed to find a working frequency with that could control the Zombots using Eggman's Egg Mobile. However, before Starline could upload the frequency to the Faceship, Sonic destroyed the Egg Mobile. Eggman and Starline quickly retreated while Sonic lamented over the fact that the bio-scanner was destroyed. Before he fully succumbed to the virus, Sonic ran as fast as he could out of the village.[5]
