Central City[1] is a location in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a large city on Sonic's world.[1]


Central City is a large city with many building, short and tall. It has a few docks connecting to it, as well as outer areas for small neighborhoods.



At some point in the past, Miles "Tails" Prower set up a lab in Central City.[2]

The Last Minute

Tails returned to Central City with Tangle the Lemur and Whisper the Wolf in hopes of creating a cure for the Metal Virus at his lab. Unfortunately for them, Dr. Eggman arrived to the city as well in his Faceship and distributed a large batch of the virus there. While Tails went to work on finding a cure for the virus, Tangle and Whisper took it upon themselves to help begin evacuation of the city. For over an hour, many citizens had become Zombots while others were guided by Tangle and Whisper down to a dock. Tails had nearly completed the cure for the virus but was interrupted by Zombots, two of which were Cheese and Chocola. Tails was forced to use his Cyclone to escape his lab and drove off to aid Tangle and Whisper with evacuation. Soon enough, a Restoration Rescue Shuttle came down to the docks and allowed all of the uninfected citizens to board the ship. Tails shortly joined them after the Cyclone was destroyed by the Zombots.[3]

Zeti Hunt

To deal with the Deadly Six, Tails went to Central City to prepare his Zeti Zappers and Zeti Launcher in his lab, inventions of which he presented to Jewel, Sonic and the Chaotix over video communication as they prepared for the Deadly Six's next appearance. As Restoration HQ came under attack by the Deadly Six however, Tails prepared to leave Central City with his inventions and head to Restoration HQ in the Tornado.[4]

Trial by Fire

It was later in Central City that Sonic and Tails would help Amy prepare some camping gear she had borrowed from Tails, which she needed for a trip with her friends. Allured by trip, Sonic considered coming with Amy until Tails reminded him that he had promised to play a video game with him. As such, Sonic stayed with Tails while Amy went to get her friends.[5]
