This article is about the location. For the game, see Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island.

Flicky Island[1][2] (フリッキーアイランド[3] Furikkī Airando?), also referred to 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 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]

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, Eggman 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 Eggman in his final weapon. He then used the Dimension Ring to return to Flicky Island, along with the Flickies.

In the Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comics, Flickies' Island is featured one time as main setting in Sonic Blast special. In the story, Sonic responds to a distress call from Flickies' Island, arriving to find that Doctor Robotnik had captured the island, roboticized the Flickies, and was in the midst of a search for the Chaos Emeralds. Sonic soon found out that the robot Flickies were vulnerable to seawater, and reverted to their flesh and blood forms on contact. Sonic raced through the Zones and defeated Robotnik in the Techno Bodyshell Battlesuit, causing Robotnik to flee.
