The Northern Tundra

The Northern Tundra is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a frozen region located at Mobius' northern pole.


The Northern Tundra is a harsh, icy polar region that includes the frozen North Sea. While home to many, the Walrus Herd makes up the largest population. The area has been repeatedly threatened by Doctor Robotnik and Doctor Eggman and the Eggman Empire; multiple bases and factories had been established in the tundra as well as a chapter of the Dark Egg Legion. However, the region is protected by the Arctic Freedom Fighters, who have been aided by the Knothole Freedom Fighters and others in protecting their homeland.


The Northern Tundra has been a center of conflict that far predates either of the Robotnik Wars, due to the continuous territorial struggle between the Walrus Herd and the orcas, which Grandmaster Akhlut has said to be "as old as the tides."[1][2][3][4][5][6] Other tribes, apparently uninvolved with this ancient rivalry, include the peoples of the Arctic Freedom Fighters.[7] It is also the region where Team Fighters went to rescue Mecha Sally before the second Genesis Wave swept across Mobius.[8]

  • It is questionable to whether this would be considered a "continent" since it is based off the North Pole which is a landmass of ice and is not considered a real continent.
