Heavy Rider is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. She is an advanced Badnik created by Dr. Eggman, and a member of the Hard Boiled Heavies from another dimension set in the recent past.


Decorated as a knight, Heavy Rider's design reflects that of a purple knight with a gray-colored helmet, and three spikes on her chest. She also has a black lower torso, red eyes, and gray appendages.[1]


Dr. Eggman's Birthday

In honor of Dr. Eggman's birthday, Heavy Rider, along with several other Badniks, launched an attack against Sonic the Hedgehog, only to be called off by Dr. Eggman himself, who ordered Heavy Rider and the other Badniks to return to his base. There, he lectured them about how they were unprepared to fight Sonic and explained why he did not want to celebrate his birthday. Heavy Rider explained that they just wanted to do something nice for him on his birthday, and despite her feeling ashamed for her involvement in the attempted assault, she still wished Eggman a happy birthday along with the other Badniks when the cake was brought out.[1]


Heavy Rider possesses a degree of sentience and personality traits. These traits include fawning over Dr. Eggman and attempting to give him the best birthday possible on her own volition.[1]


Dr. Eggman

Heavy Rider deeply cares about her creator Dr. Eggman, believing he "deserves nice things", and even being shown to celebrate his birthday on her own volition.[1]
