A giggling fiend on a flying bike who hurls exploding mines at Tails.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

Hocke-Wulf[1] (ホッケウルフ[2] Hokke Urufu?) is one of the secondary antagonists and the first boss in Tails' Skypatrol. He is an anthropomorphic wolf and one of the three henchmen of Witchcart.


Tails' Skypatrol

In Tails' Skypatrol, along with Bearenger and Carrottia, Hocke-Wulf was one of three henchmen of Witchcart, who was threatening to transform inhabitants of the island into crystals. He was later defeated by Miles "Tails" Prower.


Hocke has been described as a giggling fiend.[1]


Hocke-Wulf is featured as the first boss of the game after the player reaches the end of Rail Canyon. He pilots a flying, yellow motorbike, while he tosses mines, which float in midair in certain patterns.

Boss guide

If Tails tosses his Boomering into a mine, it shatters into four tiny projectiles, scattering in different directions. Blowing up all four projectiles with Tails' Boomering gives a hundred points each, or the player can drop the mine on Hocke-Wulf by using the Boomering. Like other bosses, the player has to land twenty hits to defeat Hocke-Wulf or toss him into the ground four times.

Falke Wulf, from Sonic Universe #83.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics, Hocke-Wulf is referred to as Falke Wulf. In this media, he is a part of the Witchcarters, a trio of mobian thugs controlled by Wendy Naugus against their will. His first name, according to Ian Flynn, was changed from its original translation of "Focke-Wulf" because it sounded too similar to a certain curse word.[3]
