Whisper gave chase to Mimic in the village while he still continued his Sonic facade. Whisper attempted to shoot Mimic from the rooftops but Mimic took advantage of his Sonic form to talk to a star-struck villager so she would stand in the way of Whisper's shot. Mimic soon tried to creep off but was suddenly greeted by Tangle, who wanted to know why Whisper was shooting at him. Mimic lied to Tangle that Eggman had placed a mind-control chip inside Whisper's mask scope, forcing her on a rampage, and he himself could not bring himself to hurt her.

Later, at an [[Eggman Empire (IDW)|Eggman Empire]] bunker, Mimic set bombs all around the facility and watched as Tangle and Whisper approached the facility. Mimic wanted to face Whisper alone but decided to have the duo handicap themselves and thus shapeshifted into Jewel. He soon called out for help in Jewel's voice and then shapeshifted into Whisper. Tangle met up with him, thinking he was Whisper and wondered how Jewel was in the facility if she was left back in Spiral Hill. Mimic suggested that Jewel was kidnapped after "they" left the museum. Mimic led Tangle to a safe where he claimed that Jewel was being used as bait. Once Tangle faced the safe, Mimic kicked her into it and locked it. He then shapeshifted into Tangle and went off to meet Whisper. He pretended to be intimidated by Whisper's Variable Wispon and was asked by her to prove that he was the true Tangle. "Tangle" showed Whisper a cut on his shirt, claiming that Mimic had lured the lemur by shapeshifting into Jewel and he tried to attack her afterwards. After Whisper seemingly accepted this story, "Tangle" led her to where Mimic had supposedly run off to. Mimic instead activated an [[Egg Hammer (IDW)|Egg Hammer]] that wielded a wrecking ball and used it to attack Whisper. Whisper managed to defend herself and managed to destroy the Egg Hammer with her Variable Wispon's Rocket Mode. As the [[Super Badnik (IDW)|Super Badnik]] went down, Mimic jumped off and threw a bomb Whisper's way. The wolf managed to dodge this which prompted Mimic to use his laser gun to shoot at her. Whisper instead sniped the gun out of his hand and stood over him while he complimented her shooting style. When Whisper demanded to know where Tangle was, Mimic instead taunted Whisper by shapeshifting into the other members of the Diamond Cutters and told her that she was not there to protect them. Whisper initially hesitated but persisted and hit Mimic, reminding him that he was the one who sold them out. Mimic thus revealed that Tangle was being held in a safe but he had also set some bombs in the bunker. Knowing she could not leave her friend behind, Whisper ran to get Tangle while Mimic exited the bunker.

Mimic resurfaced once more to wreak havoc with his shapeshifting powers in the form of Sonic the Hedgehog. This included graffiti, stealing candy from babies and disturbing Chao. During this time, Mimic was also looking for Whisper, as he had discovered that she had survived his attack.[1]

When the two came face-to-face, Whisper discovered that not only was Mimic targeting her but he was potentially targeting Tangle the Lemur as well. Whisper gave chase to Mimic in Spiral Hill Village while he still continued his Sonic facade. While Mimic ran away, Whisper attempted to shoot Mimic from the rooftops but Mimic took advantage of his Sonic form to talk to a star-struck villager so she would stand in the way of Whisper's shot. Mimic soon tried to creep off but was suddenly greeted by Tangle, who wanted to know why Whisper was shooting at him. Seeing an opportunity, Mimic told Tangle that Eggman had placed a mind control chip inside Whisper's mask scope, forcing her on a rampage, and he could not bring himself to hurt her. Tangle thus took it upon herself to stop Whisper, leaving Mimic pleased. Whisper soon took aim at Mimic again, only for him to shoot her a sinister grin. As Tangle tackled Whisper, Mimic left the scene. After the commotion between the two, Tangle and Whisper headed to the Mineral Museum and Mimic watched them leave in the form of the villager he talked to earlier. Mimic soon after went to the Mineral Museum and watched Whisper talk about him to Tangle and Jewel the Beetle. He then left a note for Whisper on the door to the museum that told her to meet him so that they could end things once and for all.[1][3]

Mimic wanted to face Whisper alone but decided to have the duo handicap themselves and thus shapeshifted into Jewel. He soon called out for help in Jewel's voice and then shapeshifted into Whisper. Tangle met up with him, thinking he was Whisper and wondered how Jewel was in the facility if she was left back in Spiral Hill. Mimic suggested that Jewel was kidnapped after "they" left the museum.

To match his shapeshifting abilities, Mimic is an untruthful person. He does not like causing much of a scene, relying on tactics to undermine and trick others into doing what he wishes. He is quite sinister, ominous and unapologetically violent in nature.[1] He is also very manipulative. One such instance of this was shown when he shapeshifted into Whisper to make Tangle enter a safe so that he could lock her in it.[2][3]
