The Imperial Palace is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the palace that is owned and ruled by Blaze the Cat.


The Imperial Palace bears large white structures with mainly purple, flat, conical and hemisphere-shaped roofs. Some buildings of the palace hold up large gray spheres. Some of the buildings bear golden, spear-like structures on the top of them. Other roofs are designed to be gray and are hemisphere-shaped or frustum-shaped.


Out of the Blue

One night at the Imperial Palace, Blaze looked out from a balcony. Gardon came by to give the evening security report, only to reveal that there was nothing to report and all was peaceful. Blaze was pleased with this news, saying that it may be his report for many nights to come. Just then, after a crash was heard outside of the palace, Blaze ran to investigate it and Gardon followed her. Blaze and Gardon had found a passed out Sonic the Hedgehog, who revealed later that he had lost his memory and could not remember what had occurred before he arrived in Blaze's world. Soon, Blaze had tea with Sonic while Gardon stood by. Sonic explained that he could not even recall his own identity but accepted being called "Mr. Needlemouse" by a young girl he met there. He did mention that there was nothing concrete and his memories seemed warped; he dreamt of sea and sky, of golden fire and a sense of falling, and nothing more. Blaze continued to ponder who did this to Sonic and asked herself what was happening on his world at that moment.[1][2]
