The Nebula is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a mass-produced Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.


The Nebulas look like small black creatures hiding inside red, egg-shaped metal shells. It is unclear what these creatures fully look like, but they do have two cartoony black eyes, pink arms that stick out of their shells, and white gloves. Each of their shells also have a hole on the bottom where a small cannon is equipped, and a gray propeller on top.



After Sonic the Hedgehog thwarted Dr. Eggman in their last encounter during the Eggman War, the doctor disappeared while his Nebulas and the rest of his Badnik army remained. Without a leader however, the Nebulas were directionless and no longer a unified threat.[1] Even so, they would still randomly attack anyone they came across[2] (although such incidents were more accidental than aggression-based[1]).


Eventually, the Nebulas came under the control of Dr. Eggman again. Later, a Nebula onboard the Faceship would hand the ship's microphone over to Eggman as the Faceship came over Windmill Village.[3]

Powers and abilities

The Nebulas are capable of flight using their propellers.[3]
