Gardon is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is an anthropomorphic koala from Blaze's world and the bodyguard of the princess.[1]


Gardon is a gray furred koala with droopy ears. He has a white furred muzzle and bears a large black nose. He bears small, black, bead-like eyes. For attire, he wears a matching sky blue two piece uniform, consisting of a hat with a rim and a vest with a yellow collar and latches. He also wears white gloves and brown shoes with gray soles.


Out of the Blue

In the Imperial Palace, Gardon went to Blaze to give her the evening security report, only to reveal that there was nothing to report and all was peaceful. Blaze was pleased with this news, saying that it may be his report for many nights to come. Just then, a crash was heard outside of the palace. When Blaze ran to investigate it, Gardon followed and warned her of the potential danger. Blaze replied saying that if it was something that threatened her in her own home, she would show it who was "dangerous". At the small crater of the crash site, Gardon and Blaze found none other than a passed out Sonic the Hedgehog.[1] Later on, Gardon stood by Blaze's side while she talked with an amnesiac Sonic.[2] Some time later, Gardon brought Blaze the Sol Emeralds, which she used to restore Sonic's memory.[3]


Gardon is quite dutiful in his role as a bodyguard and treats it seriously. Despite this, he is slightly more fearful and cautious than the one he is supposed to protect, Blaze.[1]
