Phantoms[1] are creatures mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. They are distinct replicas of existing beings that were utilized as soldiers by the Eggman Empire during its war with the Resistance.



During the war between the Eggman Empire and the Resistance, Dr. Eggman used phantoms of Metal Sonic as substitutions for the real thing while Metal Sonic was being upgraded into Neo Metal Sonic. Sonic the Hedgehog eventually fought one of these phantoms.[1]
