Classic Sonic's world is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is known as the home dimension of Sonic the Hedgehog, and an alternate reality derived from Sonic's dimension. It is noticeable for housing past versions of the inhabitants from Sonic's dimension.[1]

Classic Sonic's world is a reflection of Sonic's dimension, possessing many of the same distinguished locations, like Angel Island, inhabitants, like Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Eggman, and objects, like the Chaos Emeralds and Master Emerald. The history of Classic Sonic's world likewise features many events similar to those that have happened in Sonic's dimension, such as the various hunts for the Chaos Emeralds and the ongoing conflict between Sonic and Eggman, although with their own unique twists to them; it is these events that differentiate it from its counterpart.[1]

While their timelines appear similar, Classic Sonic's world is a couple of years behind Sonic's dimension. The inhabitants of Classic Sonic's world are therefore younger than their counterparts in Sonic's dimension, and some events in Sonic's dimension have yet to transpire in Classic Sonic's world.[1]



For years, the native Sonic has fought his arch nemesis Dr. Eggman and his minions time and time again to keep the doctor from taking over Sonic's world, with Eggman failing to achieve anything.[2]

Over the course of these conflicts, Sonic and his allies competed with Eggman and his minions over ownership of the seven Chaos Emeralds several times.[1] Also, every single year on his birthday, Eggman's Badniks would host unwanted birthday parties for Eggman.[2]

Eventually, Eggman rebuilt Heavy King to have him serve as his chief commander. However, Heavy King's programming compelled him to overthrow Eggman and take over the world himself. Eventually, Heavy King took control of Eggman's robots and threw Eggman himself out of his base in Winter Caverns Zone. Heavy King then planned to gather the Chaos Emeralds and use their power to conquer the world with the aid of the Hard Boiled Heavies.[1]

Seasons of Chaos

Using Metal Sonic and Metal Knuckles, Heavy King began collecting the Chaos Emeralds. Becoming aware of the Metals activities, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles teamed up to stop what they thought was another one of Dr. Eggman's schemes. Although the trio left her behind, Amy wanted to help out too, recruiting Mighty and Ray for her adventure. Meanwhile, Eggman hired Fang, Bark and Bean to find the Chaos Emeralds before Heavy King. After trekking across a few Zones during their respective hunts for the Chaos Emeralds, the teams eventually convened and found Eggman, who had been trying to reclaim control over his robots. After then getting an explanation out of Eggman, the teams decided to join forces to stop Heavy King. Making it to Heavy King's base, the assembled teams briefly fought Metal Sonic and Metal Knuckles until Eggman took control of them again. Afterward, the united allies faced Heavy King, who used the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds to fight them. However, Heavy King was still defeated. Afterward, Eggman took Heavy King back as his minion (although not without promising to upload a patch that would keep him from rebelling). Meanwhile, the others escaped with the Chaos Emeralds, which they divided amongst them to keep Eggman from getting to them, and parted ways.[1]

Sonic Learns to Drive

In order to enter Mr. Munch-Um's rally race and win a lifetime supply of chili dogs, Sonic decided to get his driving license. During a driving evaluation supervised by his driving instructor, Kip the Capybara, however, Sonic forgot about his license when he heard that the rally was about to take place. While heading to the rally, however, Dr. Eggman attacked the city, causing the rally to get canceled. Sonic wanted to head out on foot to stop Eggman, but Kip convinced him to take a high-speed detour there in his car.[3]

Dr. Eggman's birthday

With Dr. Eggman's birthday having arrived, the Badniks decided to destroy Sonic as their birthday gift to Eggman. However, when Eggman discovered their plan, he called off their attack before they could get themselves destroyed at Sonic's hands. While scolding his Badniks back in his base, however, Eggman softened up a little after hearing their heartfelt reasons for wanting to give him nice things. Afterward, Eggman reluctantly accepted his Badniks' birthday party in his honor.[2]

Amy's New Hobby

While Tails was over at Amy's house for lunch, he discovered that Amy had taken up a hobby: making comic books of her and her friends' adventures. Although Amy was unwilling to show her comics to anyone else, as she thought they were not very good, Tails took the initiative by showing them to their friends. Fortunately for a reluctant Amy, her comics were well-received and soon drew in a large gathering of locals. When Sonic later showed up and took at look at them, Amy quickly got distraught. Fortunately, Sonic thought her portrayals of him were awesome and quickly provided her with more material to use by telling her of an encounter he and Tails had with Eggman.[4]
