Birdie[5] (小鳥さん[1][6] Odori-san?), also spelt Birdy,[7][8] is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a Flicky that escaped from Dr. Eggman during the Chaos incident.

Appearance

Birdie resembles a standard turquoise Flicky, albeit with brown eyes, a white belly, a short yellow beak, three strands of hair on his forehead, three-toed yellow feet, and no facial markings. For attire, he wears a wooden locket holding by a rope around his neck which features a green hatch, and a picture of him with his two siblings inside.

History

Past

At some point, Birdie and his siblings were captured by Dr. Eggman. The pink Flicky and white Flicky were placed into E-102 Gamma and E-101 Beta respectively, while Birdie himself was sought after for the Chaos Emerald he possessed in his locket. However, Birdie managed to escape, prompting Eggman to send out ZERO to recapture him.

Sonic Adventure

Amy and Birdie fleeing from ZERO, from Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut.

In Sonic Adventure and its enhanced port Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, Birdie made his way to Station Square while chased by ZERO, eventually crashing into Amy Rose. ZERO soon arrived, and attempted to grab Birdie, only for Amy to help him evade capture by hiding with him in a diner. Realizing ZERO was out to capture Birdie, Amy promised to keep him safe, and attempted to convince Sonic to become his bodyguard. However, Sonic refused, and despite ZERO's subsequent return, Amy led Birdie into Twinkle Park, which led to a chase that resulted in both Amy and Birdie being captured by ZERO and brought to a prison onboard the Egg Carrier.

Birdie and Amy were later confronted by E-102 Gamma, who had come to retrieve Birdie. Despite his orders coming directly from Dr. Eggman however, Gamma was convinced by Amy to let her and Birdie go free. After escaping through Hot Shelter and onto the Egg Carrier's main deck however, Eggman appeared in his Egg Mobile and stole Birdie's Chaos Emerald, after which he left. Soon after, the Egg Carrier began losing altitude, prompting Tails to carry Birdie and Amy back to Station Square. While Amy expressed her confusion regarding Birdie's Chaos Emerald, Birdie opened his locket, and showed Amy the picture of him and his siblings inside it. Correctly believing that Birdie's siblings were still captives of Eggman, Amy agreed to help him find them, and started out by investigating the Final Egg. However, they failed to find Birdie's siblings there, and worse yet, ZERO continued to pursue Birdie. Amy then decided to search the crashed ruins of the Egg Carrier. Fortunately, upon their arrival there, Birdie found his siblings. However, Birdie was then suddenly attacked and injured by an Arm Punch from ZERO, who had followed them. Amy subsequently destroyed ZERO in a rage, and helped Birdie recover, before he and his siblings flew away.
