Giant Zavok is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a form of Zavok achieved through the power of a Chaos Emerald.


As the name implies, Giant Zavok simply resembles a much larger version of Zavok, with his spiked bracelets enlarged accordingly. Additionally, Giant Zavok possesses large veins running across his body, with a Chaos Emerald at their center. His pupils and irises also disappear during his initial transformation.[1]


All or Nothing

After the Faceship crashed with Zavok onboard, just as he was about to bring the Metal Virus to Angel Island, the villainous Zeti used his Chaos Emerald Siphon to draw more power from his Chaos Emerald, allowing him to attain his Giant Zavok form. As Giant Zavok, Zavok hit Angel Island with giant fireballs before scooping up Zombots and throwing them up to Angel Island while using his electromagnetic powers to keep the Metal Virus from sticking to him.[1]

As he continued to hit Angel Island with his fireballs, Zavok found Sonic, Metal Sonic and Silver coming for his Chaos Emerald. Disappointed by this small group of opposition, Zavok vowed to Sonic that he would see to that his world fell to the Metal Virus. As Zavok tried to destroy Sonic and Metal Sonic with a fireball however, his attack got blocked by Metal Sonic's Black Shield . He then tried to reach for Metal and Sonic, only for Silver to erected a psychic force-field in front of his allies. Eventually though, Giant Zavok knocked Sonic and Metal Sonic to the ground with a massive breath attack. However, Sonic and Metal Sonic quickly began running up Zavok's giant body. As Zavok tried taking control of Metal Sonic and Sonic's Metal Virus-infected body however, Sonic managed to dislodge Zavok's Chaos Emerald from his Chaos Emerald Siphon. As Sonic then fell, Zavok tried to crush Sonic and Silver with his bare hands, only for Sonic and Silver to use the seven Chaos Emeralds they had to turn into Super Sonic and Super Silver. Regardless, Giant Zavok tried to attack them with his remaining strength, only for Super Sonic to swiftly defeat him and knock him out of his Giant Zavok state as he fell over in defeat.[2]

Powers and abilities

As Giant Zavok, Zavok's physical abilities are greatly magnified. Notably, he possesses enough strength to easily lift a horde of Zombots and throw them all the way to Angel Island from the ground.[1] In addition, he can now fire massive fireballs from his mouth, powerful enough to shake the entirety of Angel Island. He also breathe large puffs of air with enough force to send someone flying into the ground. He also retains the ability to manipulate magnetic fields, which manifests as an aura of energy surges, which he can use to control nearby machinery with his mind. This also allows him to keep the Metal Virus from sticking to him.[2]

In addition to the above, Giant Zavok is able to maintain his form for some time in case he loses his Chaos Emerald.[2]


Zavok's transformation is bound to the Chaos Emerald used, meaning he will eventually revert if it is removed.[2]
