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 on Sonic's world. The Flickies are constantly captured by the Eggman Empire, who uses them as batteries for their 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.
Peaceful and non-hostile, Flickies are not known to fight. As such, they are constantly captured by the Eggman Empire. They also do not fear strangers, as a Flicky would casually approach Sonic and sit on his shoe while he talked to it.

Imprisonment and freedom
The Fate of Dr. Eggman
After the War, some Flicky-powered Hoverbys and Antons would attack Sonic the Hedgehog and Espio the Chameleon in a mountainous region. However, the two heroes were able to defeat these Badniks, freeing the Flickies inside of them.
While Sonic took a breather from his latest adventure, a Flicky would come and sit on his shoe, prompting Sonic to talk to it about what had happened lately. However, the Flicky got scared off when Tails arrived with some alarming news.
A Flicky later slept inside a tree in Windmill Village that had gotten infected with the Metal Virus. While it slept, it got turned into a Zombot as a result of touching the infected wood. After awakening, this Flicky flew towards a city.
