Never Lake ( is location that appears in ネバーレイク Nebāreiku ) ? . It is a pristine lake area on Sonic the Hedgehog CD earth where the Little Planet appears in the skies above for one month every year.
Never Lake is a very large and beautiful clear lake in an open, green-fielded landscape with some occasional rock formations. The borders of the lake are surrounded by steep cliffs with no beach below them. Around Never Lake are several mountains and large rock formations. The lake also has a single river connected to it, though it is unspecified whether it serves to drain or feed the lake.
Seeking to submit Little Planet, a giant metal chain was set up by
Dr. Robotnik from a rock formation at Never Lake to chain the satellite to earth while the doctor searched for the Time Stones on it. Heading to Never Lake for himself, Sonic the Hedgehog arrived only to narrowly dodge the mountain debris around Never Lake knocked loose by the chain before heading off to stop Robotnik and save Little Planet. Upon succeeding Sonic returned to Never Lake with Robotnik's previous captive Amy Rose and cut the giant chain, allowing Little Planet to disappear above Never Lake.

series published by Sonic the Comic Fleetway Editions, Never Lake is a location found on Planet Mobius. Much like in the games, Never Lake is where the Miracle Planet appears above for three days every month. Before Dr. Robotnik came, it was one of the greatest beauty spots on Mobius, but its environment has since been left greatly damaged. Many of the Freedom Fighters' battles with the Brotherhood of Metallix would either begin or take place around Never Lake.
Never Lake is mentioned in the
comic book series and its spin-offs published by Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics. In this media, it was a sacred lake in the Kingdom of Mercia, where the Little Planet appears above once a year for a month.
After the events of
Worlds Collide, Never Lake's history is now nearly identical to its game counterpart's.
