Life moves on, with or without us. We found our own ways to endure. And I... perhaps I have lingered too long in the past. Elder Koco has looked after our kind while I've slept here, wandering the Digital Dream. We had our time. Now it is your world. Protect it and savour it as we would have.

— Hermit Koco, Sonic Frontiers

Hermit Koco[1] (仙人ココ[2] Sen'nin Koko?) are creatures that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are a type of Koco inhabiting the Starfall Islands.



The Hermit Koco, like other Koco, are stone-like creatures with leafy adornments in the place of hair. They are set apart by their abnormal slenderness and height, as well as the length of their mossy beards.

Characteristics and culture[]

Hermit Koco are often found dozing off and resting.


Hermit Koco can be encountered by Sonic the Hedgehog in Sonic Frontiers. When being given certain items by the hedgehog, they can alter Sonic’s attacking and defensive strength.[1] Additionally, they can alter the level distribution of maximum speed and maximum ring count bestowed upon Sonic by the Elder Koco.
