The Minions[2] are a species that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They were a race of goblin-like creatures apparently native to the Zone of Silence.


After Maximillian Acorn was banished to the Zone by Dr. Ivo Robotnik, the Minions took him in and chose him to be their leader, outfitting him with special armor.[2] They subsequently joined him when Sonic the Hedgehog, Sally Acorn, and other members of the Knothole Freedom Fighters came to rescue the king, though they were defeated by Sonic's speed.[3] Later, the Minions would be caught up in the Zone of Silence's near collapse, which the Freedom Fighters were able to prevent with the Neutralizer device.[2]

When Feist rose to power, the Minions were reduced to nothing and used by Feist as building material for the Special Zone, rendering their species extinct.[1]
