Flicky Island[1][2] (フリッキーアイランド[3] Furikkī Airando?), also known as Flickies' Island, is a location in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. According to legend, the island is home to precious gems, including the Chaos Emeralds. It is also the home of special Flickies from another dimension, who travel to the island through Dimension Rings to gather food, and whose existences are closed tied to the Chaos Emeralds' location.[4]


Flicky Island has a highly variable environment with jungles, ancient temples, icy mountains and volcanoes.



Flicky Island was created when the remains of the fabled continent of Atlantis rose up from the depths of the sea, the Rusty Ruin Zone being a testament to its origin.[5]

Sonic 3D Blast

Detecting the Chaos Emeralds on Flicky Island, Dr. Robotnik came to the island and discovered the island's unique Flickies who traveled between worlds using Dimension Rings.[6] Seeing the possibility of gathering the Chaos Emeralds using the Flickies, Robotnik established his operations on Flicky Island, setting up numerous bases around the island, as well as building the "Dimension Ring Generator" to gather Flickies and turn them into Badniks.[4]

Hearing legends that the Chaos Emerald were located on Flicky Island, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles traveled there. Noticing the Badniks infesting the island, Sonic rushed off to rescue the Flickies and collect the Chaos Emeralds which had yet to fall into Robotnik's hands.[4] Eventually, Sonic entered the main base and defeated Robotnik in his final weapon. He then used the Dimension Ring to return to Flicky Island, along with the Flickies.
