Guardian is a title that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was an office or position on the High Council of Echidnaopolis and Albion. Under the direction of the High Councilor, Councilors discussed the affairs of their city and voted on important issues. As a result of the destruction of Albion and the Dingo Regime takeover of Echidnaopolis, the High Councils were both dissolved, presumably putting an end to the title of Councilor.

- Darwin (in the time of Knuckles)
- Madam Councilor (in the time of Knuckles)
Unlike the members of the Council of Acorn, members of the Echidna High Councils of Albion and Echidnaopolis did not share a uniform, but wore various attire as they saw fit.
- Many of the Councilors featured in the series were one-shot characters, and only a handful were even named. The most prominent exception to thiswas Yanar, who previously served as assistant Mitre over the Lost Tribe of Echidnas.
