The Cucky is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. They are a race of fowl animals that live in another dimension set in the recent past. The Cuckies are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman, who uses them as batteries for his various Badniks.
The Cuckies are very similar to the Flickies in overall anatomy. They resemble white-feathered chickens about half a meter tall with a round-shaped head, two large blackeyes, a tiny orange beak, and thick cheeks. Their wings are medium-sized compared to their bodies, which are smaller than their heads, and they possess smooth yet sharp tail feathers and soft orange feet with three toes on each foot. Additional features include a rather large red comb and a small red wattle under their beaks.
Characteristics and culture
Seasons of Chaos
One peaceful day on Angel Island, a local Cucky would play with other animals until Metal Knuckles came and bowled over them. During the subsequent battle between Knuckles and Metal Knuckles, the Cucky was put in danger when Metal Knuckles made a giant mushroom cave in above it. Fortunately, the Cucky was saved by Knuckles, although at the cost of allowing Metal Knuckles to escape.
- The Cuckies are based on the species of the same name that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
