— Dive, Sonic Universe #93

Dive is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is a mobian lemming, and a member of the Pirates of the Setting Dawn.


Dive is a mobian lemming roughly around the height of Espio the Chameleon. He has light purple fur, light pink skin, blue eyes, and round ears. His attire consists of a sky blue scarf, as well as brown gloves, belt and boots.


The Case of the Pirate Princess

While travelling the seas alongside his shipmates, Dive encountered Echo the Dolphin, Razor the Shark, and the Chaotix, all of whom had been captured.[2] In a bold attempt to start a fight, Vector the Crocodile, the Chaotix's leader, grabbed Dive and hurled him halfway across the deck, much to Dive's displeasure. Later, Dive would help Vector secure Echo's convertible, expressing his love for the sea to the detective.[3]


Dive is spacey, nervous, and somewhat distant, often prone to zoning off.[4] Another prominent trait of his is his immense love for the sea.[3]


  • Dive's name and love for the ocean is most likely a reference to the common myth that lemmings commit mass suicide by jumping off cliffs during migration. The most notable contributer to this misconception is the 1958 Walt Disney movie White Wilderness, in which the film crew staged a mass suicide by pushing lemmings off a cliff via a rotating platform.
