For the scrapped character from Sonic the Hedgehog (1991), see Madonna.

Madonna Garnet is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. She is a human agent of G.U.N.'s C.L.I.P. Division, charged with conducting interrogations.


Madonna Garnet is a tall woman with peach skin, short, blonde hair and blue eyes. She wears a G.U.N. uniform consisting of a navy and red body suit.


Following the hubbub on Angel Island, one of Madonna's assignments involved interviewing Dr. Julian Snively regarding his history with G.U.N. on the orders of Abraham Tower. After listening to his account regarding his previous history with Dr. Eggman, Walter Naugus, the Kingdom of Acorn, and Angel Island, she found herself in the unusual position of being unable to tell whether or not he was lying about anything.[1]


Madonna is a confident woman that has a strict attitude. She takes her job quite seriously and can be quite sassy at times.


  • Madonna is based on a scrapped character created for the original Sonic the Hedgehog game from 1991. She was intended as a love interest for Sonic, but was cut from the game for fear it would be too controversial for American audiences.
  • Madonna's surname is similar to that of Mary Garnet, a fictional character mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog Technical Files, which served as a origin story for the conceptualization of Sonic. The fact that her surname is that of a gemstone coupled with her status as a G.U.N. agent also makes her similar to Topaz from the Sonic X anime series and its comic series.
    • A garnet is typically known to be red in color. This may mean Madonna's surname is a callback to the color dress she wore in her early designs.
  • Madonna's introduction into the comics was first hinted by head writer Ian Flynn on Twitter, though he noted it was "not in any way [we'd] expect."[2]
