The Flicky 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 bird animals that live in another dimension set in the recent past. The Flickies are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman, who uses them as batteries for his various Badniks.
The typical Flicky is a small and rotund bird with a sky blue plumage and orange three-toed feet. They have round-shaped heads with two large black eyes, soft orange beaks and two upward-looking tuffs above their foreheads. Their wings are medium-sized compared to their bodies which are smaller than their heads and their tails consist of three tail feathers. In terms of markings they have pink cheeks, a dark blue patch across their eyes, and white bellies.
Other types of Flickies can come in different shapes and sizes; blue Flickies looks similar to the standard ones, but with darker colors and orange markings; green Flickies are bulky with a big bun on the middle of their heads; pink and purple Flickies have pony tails on both sides of their heads, a strand of hair on their foreheads and heart-shaped orange bellies; and red Flickies have bangs and three spikes of hair on their heads.<

Seasons of Chaos
One peaceful day on Angel Island, a local Flicky would play with other animals until Metal Knuckles came and bowled over them. During the subsequent battle between Knuckles and Metal Knuckles, the Flicky was put in danger when Metal Knuckles made a giant mushroom cave in above it. Fortunately, the Flicky was saved by Knuckles, although at the cost of allowing Metal Knuckles to escape.
