The Pepper People are a group that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. They are a tribe of anthropomorphic chili peppers that Knuckles the Echidna imagined during a pepper-induced dream.[1]


Characteristics and culture

The Pepper People are a clan of harden and fierce warriors despite their size, who follow a "never surrender" philosophy in battle. The Pepper People all closely follow the leadership of the Lost Pepper of Claggerhorn, whom they hold outmost respect for, instantly silencing on his command and being shocked when Knuckles asked their leader a personal question.[1]

The Pepper People all use rustic medieval hand weapons in combat. Though their attire may vary, several wear helmets and striped blue face paint.[1]


TV series

Season one

In Knuckles' dreams, the Pepper People lived in Claggerhorn until they were driven out from there by an unknown force and immigrated to the Lands of the Doomed. However, it was prophesied that a big oaf would appear and lead them back home.[1]

When Knuckles landed in their stronghold, the Pepper People tied him up while the Lost Pepper of Claggerhorn interrogated him. Declaring him their prophesied oaf, the Pepper People had Knuckles lead their attack on the Village Center, and assaulted the Chili Dog Cook-Off. As Sonic reminded Knuckles that he was attacking his own friends, Knuckles knocked Lost Pepper into a chili pot. Noticing the pots were like their old hot springs, the Pepper People made a truce: they could soak in the villagers' chili pots, and the villagers could use their juices for their sauces. It was then that Knuckles' dream ended.[1]


  • The Pepper People are based on the Scottish warriors in the film Braveheart.
  • The Pepper People appear as action figures in Dave the Intern's room in "Next Top Villain." This may imply that the Pepper People in Knuckles' dream could have been inspired by those figures on a subconscious level.
