The eagle[1] is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a non-anthropomorphic eagle that can help transport the player to different locations. It is also the symbol of Soleanna.[2]


In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), the eagles appear mostly in the game's Action Stages where they are used by Sonic, Shadow and Silver to transport them to locations that they cannot reach themselves. They usually appeared in Kingdom Valley. They also appear in the game's Town Stages, like when Silver needs to use one of the eagles to reach his Kingdom Valley's Mirror of Soleanna.
