The Mobius Ring[1] is an object that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. They are giant golden rings created by the Drakon Empire for teleportation between worlds.

Description

Mobius Rings resemble larger versions of the Golden Rings of Mobius. They hover above the ground slightly when activated, and possess a glow of blue energy in their center. In terms of abilities, Mobius Rings act as portals to transport the user to a set area, and can be controlled using a Drakon Sword.[2][3]

History

Past

In the ancient past, when the Drakons abandoned their outpost on Mobius, they left behind a single Mobius Ring on Flickies' Island, realizing that someday the Mobians would become advanced enough to understand how it worked, on which day they might become a threat to their empire. The Flicky birds native to the Drakons' dimension regularly traveled through the Mobius Ring, appearing on Flickies' Island for a few weeks every year.[1][2]

Flickies' Island

Said Flicky appearances attracted the attention of Doctor Robotnik, who traveled to the island to find out where they went. When Robotnik tampered with the Mobius Ring in order to catch the Flickies for use as organic batteries in his new Badniks, a Drakon Prosecutor arrived to take Robotnik away for interrogation, believing him to be a potential threat to the Drakon Empire.[2][1]

The Evil Empire

Robotnik soon returned, having made a deal with the Drakon Empire, and was granted control over a Mobius Ring, summoning it wherever he wished by means of a device on his glove. He used this to travel from Drak to Mobius and back again. Sonic was also transported back to Mobius (having won his trial by combat) by means of a Mobius Ring.[3][4]

Best of enemies

Emperor Ko-Dorr later used a Mobius Ring to transport himself and his Sentinels to Flickies' Island on Mobius.[5]

Order and Chaos

Following the Drakon Empire's successful invasion of the Floating Island, Grimer used a Mobius Ring and a modified Drakon Sword to transport Robotnik there.[6]
