Nite the Owl is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is an anthropomorphic owl and Nite the Owl's counterpart from another dimension set in the recent past, where he works as the radio host for K-TBR 199.2.
Nite is a light brown and cream feathered rotund, anthropomorphic owl. He also has black eyes with yellow sclera and a short orange beak. For attire, he wears red rimmed glasses, a red, orange and yellow striped scarf, and black and gray headphones.
Sonic Learns to Drive
On a seemingly normal morning, Nite began his shift on K-TBR 199.2 with the morning parliament, followed by a traffic update featuring problems caused by Sonic. Not long after, Nite promised the listeners that the station would soon go live with their coverage of Mr. Munch-Um's road rally. However, he would soon announce that the road rally had been postponed due to an attack on the city by Dr. Eggman. Afterward Nite reported that he would play the Chao Chaos's latest hit, "Chili Dog Rhapsody".
- Nite is the first character in IDW Publishing's Sonic comic series universe to be portrayed as a counterpart of a comic-exclusive character from the main universe.
- Initially, the artist Mauro Fonseca decided to give Nite a different look compared to his modern counterpart, but due to a lack of time, did not ask Sega for their approval, leading to the page having to be redrawn after being rejected.
