The Nocturne Decurion is an enemy that appears in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. They are a unit of echidna soldiers from the Nocturnus Clan who were banished to the Twilight Cage.


The Nocturne Decurion's armor is equipped with a pair of wings on the back that allows them to fly and launch assaults from above. They are known for being nimble and are amongst the most feared soldiers in the Nocturne Army due to their flying abilities and for bringing mass destruction from above. When in battle, the Nocturne Decurion are known to often dispatch their enemies before they knew what hit them.

The Nocturne Decurion can only be encountered on Nocturne. Their basic attack is flying towards their opponents and slash them vertically with their Nocturne Blade. This attack can not only damage the player, but also replenish the Nocturne Decurions' own Health Points, by leeching off the opponent's Health Points, given they land a successful hit. Their POW moves are Evade and Leech Wave, which can inflict Leech.
