The Ice Cap Zone[2] is a location that appears in Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a Zone on the Floating Island that is covered entirely in snow and ice, leaving very little scenery and miles of cold ground.


The Ice Cap Zone was visited by Knuckles the Echidna via a Zoom Tube when he discovered the Death Egg II had crashed there. Upon investigating it, the ship's pilot Dr. Ivo Robotnik tricked Knuckles into believing Sonic the Hedgehog was after the echidna's Chaos Emeralds.[1] Knuckles later returned after Robotnik's betrayal, keen to destroy the Badniks still remaining there. Sonic joined him and the two tracked down Robotnik, disposing of Inter-Zone technology that was sending Badniks down to the Hill Top Zone.[3][4]

One Christmas, Knuckles allowed Sonic, Amy and Johnny Lightfoot up to the Ice Cap Zone to relax. As Sonic started a race with Knuckles and Johnny across the Zone when Amy tried to kiss him however, Amy was forced to face Robotnik's abandoned Snownik, whom she tricked into going off a cliff.[2]

A couple of years later, Tails visited the Ice Cap Zone to wish Knuckles a happy New Year, but found himself hit by an avalanche. Knuckles managed to rescue Tails and dug out the Tornado so they could retreat to the Mushroom Hill Zone. In reality, it was Sonic that had whipped up the disaster to test Knuckles' skill as a guardian.[5]
